Dear readers.

This is the first issue of a monthly military-theoretical journal, Military Thought. It is symbolic that in the year of its 85th anniversary the journal is returning (after an eight-year "hiatus") to a periodicity that our constant and loyal readers were accustomed to. This is especially important in the present conditions since the ongoing drastic reform of the state's military organization requires an appropriate military-scientific and scientific-informational support. Today, like never before, it is important that a certain measure of disparity that exists between military theory and practice does not turn into an insurmountable chasm, when theory either fails to catch up with practice or practice, driven by time-serving interests, rejects all achievements by domestic and foreign military thought.
