Abstract : This report examines aims to explore the factors that, in combination, will determine the shape and strategic orientation of the Russian Navy at the turn of the century and beyond. Projections are offered on its likely composition and capabilities. The author concludes that, while it will remain largely confined to operations in the near ocean area, it will certainly meet the needs of the Russian Federation - at least for the next decade and perhaps longer - and should remain dominant in Eurasian waters.
