Russian Military and Security Periodicals (UDB-MIL)

Key publications on Russia's armed forces

The only resource of its kind, the Russian Military and Security Periodicals (UDB-MIL) collection includes several dozen publications covering military and security developments in Russia from both official and independent sources. All branches of the armed forces are covered by this collection, including the Russian Air Force, Army and Navy. In addition to journals and newspapers published in Moscow, UDB-MIL presents imprints from military districts and some armies and divisions. Equally important, the collection includes a trove of English-language sources.
