Russian defense minister states permanent readiness of nuclear triad

Contemporary challenges and threats to national security require the armed forces’ readiness for a rapid and efficient response under any circumstances, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said. He made the statement on May 8 while reporting a routine troop control practice to the Russian president. “This event is a major stage of the Russian Armed Forces’ training in 2014, which is conducted once every six months consistent with your order,” Shoigu told the president.
