The author looks at Russian air defence within the context of history and the more specific context of academic Raspletin’s impact on it. The current state of Russia’s military-industrial complex is also addressed – with the author stressing that only with the participation of the Russian scientific community, with new breakthroughs in fundamental research, is innovation possible.
