Проект: Analytical work: the experience of Russian and foreign experts

And Russia is no exception. But any army — even a private one — needs private intelligence (CRK). Intelligence is the eyes and ears of units. And also the brain. The Americans and their auxiliary apparatus in Ukraine have such brains. What about us?
