Russian hero shares knowledge in countering terrorism at KDU

Major General Victor V. Shulyak, Professor of Military Strategy Chair of the Military Academy of General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, shared his knowledge with the participants at the 12th International Research Conference hosted by the General Sir John Kotelawala Defence University (KDU) in Ratmalana on September 11 and 12 under the overarching theme of “Challenges to Humankind in the Face of New Technologies”. It is the annual event in military studies of the KDU.

The Conference gathered prominent experts in Defence Studies, Law, Governance, Environment and Space Studies, Information Technologies, Medicine, Engineering, and other spheres vital to humanity but prone to a number of contemporary challenges – particularly, to terrorism in its various developing forms.

The presentation by Major General V. V. Shulyak represented a substantial step in this direction as it covered the particular traits of contemporary terrorism, the use of information technologies by terrorist organizations, objectives and operational experience of Armed Forces in counterterrorism action, along with the mechanisms of political regulation of conflicts, and analyzed the outcome of operations against international terrorism in the interests of the humanity.

Major General Victor Shulyak is a combat veteran who received the title of the Hero of Russia – the country’s highest sign of recognition of military merits and gallantry. He is a member of several highly respected military orders and was awarded with a tally of medals.
