Military Review

Russian-speaking specialists in the Pentagon will be more. What for?

21
The head of the Pentagon will submit to the US Congress a proposal to amend the draft law on financing and Pentagon policy for 2019, aimed at increasing the number of specialists who are fluent in Russian, Chinese and Korean, according to News.




According to the document, the US Department of Defense "will assess the urgency of the shortage of people with knowledge of Russian, Chinese and Korean languages ​​in vital areas" and present a plan for its solution.

Recall that last year the recruitment of employees with knowledge of the Russian language announced the CIA. The Russian Foreign Ministry then thanked the US department for “supporting and promoting the Russian language” and offered its assistance in recruiting staff.

And in April of this year, it became known that the National Guard of the United States acquired “audio programs for learning the Russian language” for its servicemen.

The bill will be reviewed by the Armed Forces Affairs Committee this week, after which it will go to a vote in the House of Representatives.

    The army somehow fell into the hands of a pamphlet for official use ... there, among other things, there were ten phrases by which it was possible to determine the native speaker of the language or not ... but on the other hand, the Negro in earflaps, felt boots and balalaika also burned down at once ...

        can
        it was not a joke, but the Foreign Ministry’s desire to work.
        Recruiting staff, there are not only Russian-speaking.
        By the way, it’s not enough to type just Russian speakers without the specifics of the Russian Federation, for example. So this is not always a threat to the Russian Federation.

    ... There will be more Russian-speaking specialists in the Pentagon. What for?...

    Weird question.
    Of course, to build bridges of interaction with colleagues from the Russian Defense Ministry.
    ... The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs thanked the CIA for "supporting and promoting the Russian language" and offered its assistance in staffing ...

    Let us introduce a list of necessary specialists to our MO.
    Shoigu will not refuse - he will do everything in the best possible way laughing

    amendments to the Pentagon’s Financing and Policies Bill for 2019, aimed at increasing specialists who are fluent in Russian,
    Well, as it were, the movement in the right direction, but ideally it is necessary that there should not be any English-speaking specialists left at the Pentagon. good

    I think that they will not return the mattress to its former power of the time of the 80s. There they have traders at the helm, not the military.

    In order to understand what is being spoken in the adversary’s language there is little knowledge of the language, one must also master the entire spectrum of etymological expressions and the special lexicon. But for different branches of the army, the same phrase can have completely different meanings.
    At the same time, one should not underestimate the "linguistic nature" of amers - such unique cryptographers-translators are often found

        I came across somewhere about the removal of the brain when translating the phrase - behind the sandy scythe narrow-eyed scythe died under the scythe of a woman with a scythe

    Not only people who know the Russian language, but also people of expert level are lacking. And then all the actions of Americans are based on clippings from the Internet and sometimes look very stupid!
