Army General Sergei Shoigu has also noted that currently there is a degradation of the existing mechanisms for maintaining global stability in the world, the number of regional conflicts is increasing, the activity of terrorist organizations is growing, cyberspace and space are involved in the sphere of armed confrontation.

“As a result, unpredictability of the development of the situation is observed, the likelihood of developing incidents that can lead to a global crisis is growing.

In these conditions, as never before, a dialogue of professionals, military specialists and experts is able to competently and impartially discuss the ways and means of neutralizing new threats and challenges in the security sphere,” the invitation said.

It should be reminded that last year, Lieutenant General Ibrahim Gasseev participated in the Moscow International Conference on International Security. The head of the South Ossetian defense department made a report at the plenary session "International peacekeeping: new approaches and military cooperation."

The Minister of Defense also spoke about the significant geopolitical, economic, and other consequences of the August 2008 war. The Minister of Defense reminded that Russia recognized the independence of the republics of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, after which the concept of peace for the people of South Ossetia moved to a new quality.
