In the Airborne Forces (VDV) in the fall of last year, significantly fewer recruits were called up than a few years earlier, reports TASS the press service of the Ministry of Defense.


The military explained what caused the reduction of the call in the Airborne Forces


As explained in the department, this is due to the constant increase in the number of contractors.

Airborne troops from year to year are becoming more and more professional type of troops. The corps of professionals, increasing every year, inexorably reduces the proportion of those serving in conscription. So, by the end of January of this year, another conscription company for airborne forces ended with the adoption of the Military oath for about 5 thousand troops. There are already connections where only about 100 recruits arrived or they were not distributed at all,
says release.

It is reported that "over the past four years, the number of citizens required by the Airborne Forces for conscription service has halved," while the competition among draftees who want to serve in the Airborne Forces has increased many times over.

"The contingent of contract soldiers is replenished, including at the expense of conscripts: some recruits decide to remain in the ranks of professional military and sign a contract," said the press service.

During the period of their service, conscripts manage to complete parachute jumps up to 10 and participate in large-scale exercises, they added to the Ministry of Defense.

    From year to year, airborne troops are becoming more and more professional troops
    And it is right. More marines in the end to equip only contract soldiers, and after them the fleet.

      Definitely a useful solution, but all recruits are absolutely necessary. That young blood would come.

        I agree. To do this, there are ground forces.

          For the army, a professional contractor is much more preferable to a conscript yellowhorot, but after all, from the yellowhorotics, too, excellent professionals are obtained over time, so a certain percentage of conscripts must be.

            "The devil is in the details," remember.
            By virtue of the Regulation on the procedure for military service
            8 Article. 1. The first contract is concluded previously not undergoing military service under the contract:
            b) military personnel who are in military service on conscription and who have received higher education before being drafted into military service, as well as military personnel, who have been conscripted for at least three months.
            Here comes the statistics. 3 months and per contract. This is, first of all, beneficial to the fighter himself, given the "proletarian" strata that form combat units.
            And the MO leadership has good statistics for reporting to the Kremlin.
            Yes, and service is now held in high esteem, and without it there is already a problem in the future.
            Himself an urgent and contract in the Airborne Forces with 1995 to 1999. There is something to compare, believe me.

              This is where the statistics come from. 3 months and per contract
              Let me disagree. At the Ryazan Higher School of the Airborne Forces, courses for contract soldiers who came from civilian life have long been functioning. And not everyone can be pre-selected. And there are many who wish.

                The training courses for sergeants in the Ryazan VVDKKU ceased to function after Serdyukov left the post of Minister of Defense. Now they train specialists with higher professional education - officers and specialists with secondary vocational education - warrant officers. Those sergeants who graduated from the school on the course of the open source under Serdyukov were also awarded the rank of ensign.

      Here I do not agree. There would be more striped devils, even if they serve for at least a year, but after serving stupid cuttings that have not served, the brains are adjusted, because in the airborne forces they can make a person from protoplasm in 1 year. hi

      And you don't know about the trained reserve? As Yazov said, a young conscript is more efficient than a 30-year-old plump contract soldier. He said this when he compared our Soviet Vdvshniks with similar amerskih soldiers. Young and runs faster and longer, and in general, the human body at 35 years old is "removed from the warranty" (c) and given the load in the Airborne Forces and the marines, sores begin to creep out.

        Exactly. at the very least, they will teach - better than not serving at all.
        But where it comes to complex technology, a contract is preferable. Conscripts - shooters of branches in DShB (R) and RDR, etc.

        It also turns out that they are conscripted to the elite units, the units are selected, but the selected guys are cunning, they are not bad in civilian life, they don’t stay for the contract, they recruit contract soldiers from the “infantry”,

        .
        I saw that none of those selected for the reconnaissance battalion remains for a contract, they recruit from the "infantry", so a company of conscripts "makes" both companies of contract soldiers in the battalion in all competitions, yes, there are super-professionals among the contract soldiers, but their platoon is for the battalion.

    Contractors are certainly good, but how to form a mobile reserve? I believe that, in particular, in the Airborne Forces, the call should still be at the proper level! What? Let the General Staff think!

      And the mob reserve needs to be formed by opening new sports schools, parachute sections at aero clubs, etc., and not night dens for stinging called clubs ..... but it is impossible to increase the proportion of conscripts in troops and rapid reaction units.
      I believe that, in particular, in the Airborne Forces, the call should still be at the proper level

      Airborne Forces - the first to be thrown into the "battle" if necessary (remember the "green men" in the Crimea) .... It is impossible to send conscripts according to the Law ..... so that there should be a minimum in such parts. And then - in the training.

        In a healthy body healthy mind!
        Logically, understandably, justified.
        The parts of the first line must be very strong. But a mob reserve must be formed ... until everything in the world is calm and blissful.

        Maybe so. But after all, free sports schools and parachute sections at flying clubs are legends of ancient times. Only grandfathers remember about them. Another moment. An airborne soldier is not only a parachute and a sapper shovel. Brick fist - to smithereens, a bottle on the head - to smithereens. The Airborne Forces is actually an idea, history, psychological preparation in the end. You do not know who Vasily Fillipovich is, but at least break four bottles on your head at once. You're not an airborne fighter, period. The call should be unequivocal.

    A contractor is already a specialist, in comparison with a conscript. On the other hand, they enter contract soldiers through the conscription service.

    In my amateur opinion, the wrong decision of our MO. It is clear that the authorities are afraid of people who have special training and are not associated with the authorities, but this is fundamentally wrong for the country's security!

      Something you have is indistinct, on the one hand, the authorities are afraid, on the other hand, the country's security. The real threat to any government is not those who took the oath, but those who underwent "special training" on Western grants and are truly not bound by obligations with respect to the country in which they live. Something I have not seen a single paratrooper who would pour mud on Russia, they will bury their own.

        I apologize, but Kvachkov also on the western grants of the same? wink For me, he is an example of a warrior and an officer. Everything is very clear for me, I just need to think, build a logical chain. Can you handle it yourself? wink

          On the issue of Kvachkov. Radical patriotism, has not brought anyone to good yet. As it says there, "by good intentions, the road to hell is strewn." This is just the case. Look at how many radical patriots in the Krai, what's good? And some of them, probably really love that Ukraine, the image of which they drew for themselves, but this does not make anyone feel better. So build the logical "chains" yourself, only with a cold mind, and not on emotions.

            Please, let's not talk about Ukraine! Well, enough already to cite the poor as an example! That’s really an argument: the 90s and Ukraine. But if the arguments are scanty, so maybe the fact that they justify supposedly is also the same scanty? I almost always have a cold calculation, I rarely act under the influence of emotions. Kvachkov is not radical patriotism, it is just love for one's homeland and an attempt to protect it from the rotten one that is now in power.

    And what is the point in the Airborne Forces units, if for them it is simply, almost, there are no military transport aircraft ?! Old machines, Soviet-made, are worn out to the extreme and are written off, and new ones come in a teaspoon per hour, which cannot satisfy the needs of the army.

        It's just that few people imagine how many boards are needed to lift a regiment or an airborne division with standard equipment into the air. So the USSR at the peak of its power, subject to the mobilization of GA, could simultaneously raise EMNIP, according to various estimates, from 1,5 to 2 VDD.
