Commander of the Airborne Forces Colonel General Andrei Serdyukov in an interview with the newspaper "A red star" spoke about plans to further increase the percentage of contract soldiers in the Airborne Forces. According to General Serdyukov, by the end of 2020, it is planned to bring the percentage of contract soldiers in the Airborne Forces to 80.


From the statement of the Commander of the Airborne Forces:
As of today, in the army, military service is performed under contract at the positions of sergeants and soldiers over 30 thousand military personnel, this is more than 70% of the total number of airborne troops. By the end of 2020, the Airborne Forces will be manned with 80 percent military personnel.


By the end of 2020, the number of contractors in the Airborne Forces will be 80 percent.


It is noted that contract servicemen in the Airborne Forces are accepted primarily for positions related to the operation of modern types of weapons and military equipment, requiring the presence of certain baggage of skills. These can be skills in working with EW facilities, communication systems, maintenance and operation skills of unmanned aerial vehicles, etc.

Recall that the President of the country previously reported on the preservation in the Russian Armed Forces of the mixed principle of the formation of troops. If the conscription system is maintained, the number of contractors will increase in the coming years.

      A professional army is certainly good ... but in a full-scale war it will be enough for three months ... then difficulties with manpower will begin ... personnel officers will be knocked out in bloody battles and who will replace them? ... the history of the first months of the Second World War always remember.

    For already a year, from the end of the 90s the same song! The only one who switched to the contract is the border guards. How many nerves did the FTP convert to a contract eat?

      So after all there is no task for 100% transition to the contract and it is right. A call must be a must! But border guards are still not an army ... Personally, I know a lot of border guards (I live in a border region), I tell you comrades, such an army will not protect us, the contract soldiers will be the first to dump and do not hide this ...

        I think that just the border troops should be recruited mainly from conscripts. Making them a kind of elite for those who serve on the call.

          Yes, I also think so, but the FSB does not want troubles ... The situation:
          I talk with a fellow border guard (we play sports together in the evenings), we talk about the service, I tell him, but if you are sent to a section of the border, where will the fuss begin and they will shoot? He says I'll write a translation report! Me: and if they don’t sign it? He: quit. I have an apartment (in Yekaterinburg and I personally know that there are two), family, children, why do I need these shootings! I’ll leave, I will get a job as a watchman, I have some length of service, I have accumulated money, for the first time I’ll have enough.
          Here are the defenders, officers! s / n the lieutenant there is about 50-70 thousand, depending on the position, ensign - about 40 thousand + military mortgage, free housing and other benefits and benefits ... Too there all well-groomed and well-off, there is no one to fight there, new They won’t keep Brest ...
          This is my personal opinion based on observations.

    Over the hill, the contractor is a man killing for money, our contractor is the same soldier who is simply paid extra.

    Contract contractors, and something needs to be done with conscripts! Either increase the service life, or radically change the pre-training system! And then there’s no one from whom it will soon be to recruit contractors, but in a dashing year the country will generally be left without an army! In all previous wars, the cadre army was knocked out more than half in the first months of the war! Something has changed? For robots, but all sorts of complexes someone is planning to sit out? And Syria shows that apart from weapons, nothing is changing!

    We have not had border troops for a long time. There is the Federal Border Service under the FSB. And the minimum military rank there is an ensign. What conscripts are you talking about?

    Now it is not necessary to serve an urgent term in order to enter into a contract. Draftees are given a choice of a year of urgency or a 3-year contract immediately. They even do not pass KMB and take the oath as a contractor.
