Abstract: XXI a. iškilus asimetrinio pobūdžio grėsmėms (terorizmui, masinio naikinimo ginklų plitimui), atkreiptas dėmesys į prevencinius smūgius kaip naują gynybos priemonę. Pirmoji apie tai prabilo JAV. Ketinimą panaudoti prevencinius smūgius išreiškė ir Rusija, D. Britanija, Izraelis, tačiau JAV kol kas yra vienintelė, panaudojusi tokią politikos priemonę. Kyla klausimas, ar JAV pavyzdžiu nepaseks ir kitos valstybės. Straipsnyje, pasitelkus tam tikrus faktorius ir JAV atvejį kaip prevencinį smūgį panaudojusios valstybės pavyzdį, bandoma nustatyti, kokia tikimybė, kad prevencinį smūgį panaudos artima Lietuvos kaimynė – Rusija
In the 21st century security situation has changed – international community has faced with a new kind of threats: terrorism and weapons of mass destruction. A progress of science and technology has become the two-edged sword in hand of terrorists and rogue states. In this context deterrence no longer could ensure security. Therefore attention was called to the other means of defense – preventive and preemptive strikes. Preventive strike is a military strike initiated in the belief that military conflict, while not imminent, is inevitable, and that to delay would involve greater risk. Preemptive strike is an attack initiated on the basis of incontrovertible evidence that an enemy attack is imminent. Several states have expressed intention to use preemptive strikes: USA, Russia, Australia, Italy, United Kingdom, but for the meantime only USA has implemented this strategy. The question is whether the other states will follow USA’s example. In this article the subject of preemptive strikes is considered in aspect of probability to use this means of policy. The object of analysis in this article is the probability of USA and Russia to use preemptive strikes. The purpose of the article is to compare the probability of USA and Russia to use preemptive strikes. Several factors were chosen to define the probability of USA and Russia to use preemptive strikes. They are: state‘s attitude towards preemptive strikes, military capabilities, state‘s self-perception in the international stage, the attitude of international community towards preemptive strikes. The probability of USA and Russia to use preemptive strikes is analysed employing several methods of analysis: analysis of documents, description and comparative method.[...]
