7000 officers will be returned to officer positions

7000 officers will be returned to officer positionsIn the near future, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation intends to make sergeant posts 7300 officers. Both officers and contract sergeants are currently serving in these posts. This informs RIA "News", Referring to the head of the personnel department of the Russian Defense Ministry, Lieutenant General V. Goremykin.

As the general pointed out, the GUK came forward with this proposal due to the increase in the number of officers in Russia to 220000 people. Goremykin said that Anatoly Serdyukov took a positive decision on this issue.

As the head of the personnel department explained, previously many officers were transferred to subordinate sergeant positions due to the reduction of officer positions. It is clear that the remuneration of the transferred officers turned out to be curtailed. By the way, it is not specified whether the money allowance of officers in new positions will be increased.

In total, in accordance with the reform of the Armed Forces, the number of Russian officers was reduced from 335000 to 150000 people. Growth to 220000 occurred after the creation of the Aerospace Defense Forces.

Now a huge number of officers and ensigns are in sergeant positions - about seventy thousand people. At the same time, the number of non-commissioned and non-commissioned military personnel reaches 660000 people, and of these, 100 thousands are contract servicemen. By 2017, the number of employees under the contract, mainly in the positions of sergeants, is expected to be brought to 425000.

      On TV, you need to introduce moral censorship.
      And then show suicides, murders, rape. Any dirt in the form of abuse, the popularization of alcoholism and drugs.
      I would also introduce a law on the responsibility of journalists for what they say. punish for a lie.
      You can roll a wall of text about this.

      I agree. At first, all platoon commanders were transferred to sergeants, and when most of the lieutenants and senior officers (and sometimes even captains) began to receive "sergeant" DD and were fired, then they realized what kind of ... and this new look. Well at least thought better of it.

    And on the head for "this" (for the fact that so many officers were transferred to "soldier-sergeant" positions, and this is thanks to the "Taburetkin Reform"?

    Do they even understand what they are reforming and how? That is reduced, then increased. An increase of 70 thousand officers (almost 50% of all the armed forces) due to aerospace defense? Is this what kind of staffing is there ?, or began to develop officers in East Kazakhstan region for soldier posts?

    He began his officer service in the SPRN in the mid-70s, he lives and is a member of the Higher Military Command School. Glad for youth - serve to protect the world. But official salaries in calculating a pension are one misfortune, it is a pity. However, the main thing is Russia and the future of our people.

    And where to get them - 7000 officers? Higher education institutions have reduced - broken up - reformed, in short. There is only one answer - from the stock. And what is the supply? it mobile reserve.
    And here many were touched by our brave military reform and beat themselves in the chest with their fists, that reserves are the last century, the Soviet legacy, etc. etc. There is no military danger, thank God, otherwise full pants of emotions would already exist.

    This is a cover for the incompetent reduction of the officer corps. East Kazakhstan forces were created at the merger of the Space Forces and Air Defense. Under the guise of creating an aerospace defense, 70 officers were reinstated in the Army and Navy.

    Finally, the lieutenant is returned to the Army! A sergeant platoon commander is good, but this is when the company commander is a captain, and one of the platoon commanders is an "old lieutenant", and the company commander has an experienced company sergeant and political officer, also a captain. Then you can put a sergeant with a higher education, a platoon commander. And when in the training company where the commanders of the T-64B and T-80B tanks are trained, only the company commander and the commander of the 1st platoon are officers and those lieutenants, and the company commander is concurrently and the political officer of this company ... And the rest are sergeants ... This is an army, with a small letter! It's nice that in Russia the tsar comes back to his head again. A military man needs the prospect of growth and professionalism, not just military-applied, but the professionalism of maintaining the functioning of a complex organism whose name is the Army. And this can only be comprehended if you go from lieutenant to general, and be sure to command the personnel from the platoon onward.

    In fact, they signed the failure of the reform. I know that there were smart heads foreseeing such a result. But they could not stop this action. It hurts a lot of sneaks surrounding the Ministry of Defense. They climbed out of our skin, proving that there were too many officers in the army ...
    I would like to see and hear these "reformers" on TV. Let them be responsible for what they have done. And I wonder how much it cost the state?

      Valery, hello.
      At the beginning of the 80, I commanded a company in which two platoons were ensigns, the third was an officer, plus a company technician — ensign, plus foreman — ensign, station chiefs — two ensigns, plus a couple of over-the-top posts. Almost every unit has a piece of equipment ... I just can’t imagine how things are going in the same unit after the reform. Our brains weren’t enough for all this ... I’m wondering on the technique: modern sergeants need 20-25 at least, provided that they are competent, responsible people, and not such fucking .... like in the photo below .
      Where can I get them? I do not think that over the 30 years mankind has moved so forward.

    I remembered something about the fate of his comrade. He graduated from a military school with a gold medal, then the troops, the academy. In the 90s, being a lieutenant colonel, he left the army. Now the deputy. general at a large furniture factory. The grimaces of liberalism. A furniture maker is a defense minister, An intelligent professional furniture maker. I don’t know what kind of furniture they don’t go broke, it means people are buying, but the minister is made of natural oak.
    As they say, the more oaks in the army, the stronger our defense.

    So the main disadvantage of all the stupid reforms came out. Since we want to do it in a “democratic” manner and pretend that we also have civilians in control of the military (another buzzword is “civilian control”), so separate the functions of the Ministry of Defense and the General Staff. Since a soldier is in command of a ministry, then he is the commander-in-chief. If a caftan (not even a jacket), the commander-in-chief is the NGSH. So they will slow down each other (the position is almost equal) and will not be able to bullshit very frankly. Not everything is going smoothly in the Armed Forces of Ukraine either, but we survived two caftans without any special losses. Now, instead of the admiral (in a jacket), they again appointed a caftan. I cannot judge. Already retired. But I think the NGSH will not give him too much bullshit. At least the institute of sergeants is being revived in our country and sergeants have growth prospects. The ensigns were destroyed as a class, making them sergeants. Those. the military rank "great-sergeant" remained, but this is a sergeant's rank and you can get it after 15 years of service (and all the requirements for education remained the same + constant additional training)

    Here is the sad news, I think in the topic:

    Saving a soldier, commander of a communications battalion Major Sergei Solnechnikov died at a training ground in the Amur Region. According to the press service of the Eastern Military District, an emergency occurred during the grenade throwing exercise. The grenade, after being drafted by a soldier, fell into the trench parapet.
    “The battalion commander immediately orientated himself in the situation and covered the soldier with himself, which saved his life,” the military department said.

    The wounded officer was promptly taken to a military hospital in the city of Belogorsk. For more than an hour and a half, military doctors fought for his life, but the wounds were too serious, they could not be saved. To investigate the incident, the command of the Eastern Military District created a special commission, ITAR-TASS reports.
