(A) how they would have to act militarily to deal with them - Wrong Context
(B) how to deal with them if military action would be necessary - Wrong Context
(C) what would be necessary militarily for dealing with such an event - Wrong construction
(D) what military action would be necessary in order to deal with such an event
(E) the necessity of what kind of military action in order to take for dealing with it - Wrong context.

A, B - We are talking about russian attempt and not about russians themselves.

left with C, D & E
E - Wrong context

left with C & D
C - Verb Tense. dealing, militarily - Not very good construction.
