        Gentlemen, comrades, your thoughts are not entirely true.
        The main ally of Russia is the Russian people who produce weapons, serve Russia in the army and fight for Russia.
        But our tsarist government was afraid to talk about it before and now.
        So, the fabrications of the former kings pop us.

        A modern army is essentially a hired army for money, not for an idea.
        A hired army is the capitalists' dream that it would defend their bourgeois interests.
        The capitalists argue for their loot and the army must protect the interests of organized crime groups.

          Sorry, but you’re wrong, the contract army is a necessity of time, since the amount of sophisticated equipment in the military is already prevailing, let them train a conscript even 2 years and then let go a ready-made specialist in civilian life, where after a couple of years he will forget everything unprofitable and stupid You don’t offer to serve draftees for free for 20 years

          You won’t believe it, but ALL official (licensed) mercenaries are in favor of the idea. For example, “The Legion dies, but does not surrender”, “In any conditions, at any time” - the most famous.
          In order to separate them from volunteers, call them voluntary, you will not be mistaken.

          As the experience of many wars shows, the draft army is more combat-ready than the mercenary. A conscript soldier, often sacrifices his life and goes on a feat, for the sake of his country. Mercenaries are good, only in minor operations and minor armed conflicts. on foreign territory. The philosophy is simple, many are ready to kill for money, but it makes no sense to die for money, otherwise, why are they needed then.

            Experience spoke of regular and irregular hired labor. Alas.
            The draft US army was disbanded after Vietnam. And this is a fact as crude as the whole reality.

        The army, navy and aviation (VKS) are simply a division of weapons and armaments and their management and operation methods, support bases ...
        But the crown of it all fighter (soldier), his knowledge and skills, his training and experience in owning weapons and managing weapons.

      Traditions are strong! It will not be convenient for great-grandfathers and grandfathers ... I recall the first Chechen war, I went away somewhere six months before November 1994, although there were preconditions - the intensity of combat training increased despite the difficulty in providing fuel and lubricants, however, about it wasn’t yet a dream, and my fellow soldiers were there, and so the army in those years was in a terrible state, as you recall, there was no bread, crackers from the DX warehouses ate ... but not the point! So, the boys of the 19th century, despite everything, were heavily armed with the Americans and their “beloved” Europe, sponsored by the Saudi monarchies in dollars by seasoned militants who had passed Afghanistan, Abkhazia, other hot spots on the planet ... Yeltsin with a camarilla urgently had to include an administrative resource, to stop the troops - the White House was in a panic! laughing
      A low bow to the Russian soldier!

        The results of a global study conducted by the Gallup International / WIN Association in 65 countries, including Russia.

        The technique is somehow not clear, but the numbers say that the “defense of the Motherland” is not understood as we are.

    Why is the contract army bad? You really do not exaggerate too ... The contractor is better than the conscript in units where specialists are needed, I will not list, I think you yourself know! In any case, conscripts are needed to get the basics of military affairs, then a choice is made for a contract, to hone skills ... The army is still work !!! And experience comes with time ... And you speak in cliches, like a horn accepted, hired! So besides money, nothing sacred? Well, the financial issue is also not in last place! Contractors are also people with families and desires to live like people! So a decent monetary allowance does not hurt the idea !!!

      The army is not a job, it is a vocation to serve the motherland. And you miserable did not understand.
      You can dig or not dig, and not every mercenary will master it and go into battle and die for their homeland.
      You can’t love for money, otherwise it’s prostitution.

    And officials stole and steal. So the people are sitting, rejoicing for their army and counting a penny from paycheck to paycheck. When the leadership begins to think about people. And then maybe it's time to remember what was 100 years old according to the slogan "land - to the peasants of the factory - workers !!!". By the way, it sounds very relevant today. But who needs this Russian revolt "senseless and merciless" !?

    Yes Yes. I am confident in the dedication of the Russian soldier. The command is already less. In general, even less. About the rear with the Rotenbergs, Chubais and Siluanovs, Medvedevs - in general I try not to remember.
    Who is in the rainbow clouds of the VTsIOM read about the life of military towns and in particular about Kubinka-1: http://www.odintsovo.info/news/?id=61205
    Problems with heating, garbage disposal - a complete mess in the housing and communal services. Military families live there!
    But at the same time they will build a piece of iron to the Patriot military-patriotic park. Dust in the eyes and PR.
