        Hi Sasha! hi The Minister of Defense is primarily a manager, coordinator and controller of the fulfillment of tasks for combat and rear support of the army. So, it’s not necessary to teach Shoigu on organization and demand for performance, talent from God! And the operational command and control of the troops, the development of operations, combat training, and so on. - this is the General Staff. There are people with combat experience and tactical command thinking. To each his own, the main thing is that everything functions as it should!

        Hmm ... The post of Minister of Defense during the hostilities is abolished ... De jure, the troops are controlled by the Supreme, and de facto - the chief of the General (or Main type of troops) headquarters ...
        The Minister of Defense, roughly (very roughly) speaking, is a supply manager, executive director ... To ensure not only the representation of the Armed Forces, but also the promotion and solution of military and non-military projects in their favor ... It is not in vain that aunts are in these countries in other countries ...

        And from our civilian side, Dmitry Fedorovich Ustinov was magnificent, since he knew firsthand about the problems of the SA and the Navy and successfully solved them ... hi soldier

        People like Shoigu are managers, and quite good, not military officers.

        Comrade Stalin also did not have combat experience, but under his strict guidance we won the war, and not one.

      He served under his command in 19 Moscow. I can’t say anything bad.
      "Since July 2004, he commanded a motorized rifle division in the North Caucasus Military District." - it's about 19 msd.

    The politician is politically hostile, there is no need for everyone to fit in one comb. About my politician, I still have the best memories, a real and correct man.

    Deserved - get it. Delinquent - also get, but different. Kohl was appointed by choosing from several candidates, which means that he deserves it.
