iiiPrefaceThis report documents research and analysis conducted as part of theRAND Corporation research project Extending Russia: Competingfrom Advantageous Ground, sponsored by the Army QuadrennialDefense Review Office, Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff G-8,Headquarters, Department of the Army. The purpose of the projectwas to examine a range of possible means to extend Russia. By this, wemean nonviolent measures that could stress Russia’s military or econ-omy or the regime’s political standing at home and abroad. The stepswe posit would not have either defense or deterrence as their primepurpose, although they might contribute to both. Rather, these stepsare conceived of as measures that would lead Russia to compete indomains or regions where the United States has a competitive advan-tage, causing Russia to overextend itself militarily or economically orcausing the regime to lose domestic and/or international prestige andinfluence. This report deliberately covers a wide range of military, eco-nomic, and political policy options. Its recommendations are directlyrelevant to everything from military modernization and force postureto economic sanctions and diplomacy; consequently, it speaks to allthe military services, other parts of U.S. government that have a handin foreign policy, and the broader foreign and defense policy audience.
