Lucas Winter, Jason Warner, and Christopher Betts

What instruments does Russia use to attempt to gain military influence abroad? These reports use FMSO’s M-DIME Research Project framework to assess the extent to which Russia has leveraged twelve tools of national power between 2013 and 2023 to gain military influence abroad. In doing so, they assess Russia’s current overall military influence abroad, as well as its projected military influence. They also delineate which tools of national power Russia has most prominently used.
