Military history of Russia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The military history of the modern-day Russian Federation has antecedents involving the Rus' (who built Kiev), the Mongol invasion of the early 13th century, Russia's numerous wars against Turkey, against Poland, Lithuania and Sweden, the Seven Years' War, France (especially the Napoleonic Wars), and the Crimean War of 1853–1856. The 20th century saw two World Wars and the Cold War. The military history of the Russian Federation itself began in 1991.
