          This means that people who are in more comfortable social welfare do not live up to the established retirement age (there was recently news that one citizen from the State Duma did not live up to retirement, but voted for an increase, another state employee, the head of the regional FIU, went to another world also before my retirement)

        And not everyone will be able to survive to retirement age, few can do this by paraphrasing Vitali Klitschko.
        Although the security officials have not yet seemed to raise their retirement age.

That's right, but you know what interests me the most - when the GRU did special reprimands I don’t remember something But this is a solid organization not only in the Moscow Region, but also in the structure of the state! Even with us, the signalmen, the generals were protesting against reforms leaving their posts .... Maybe I don’t know everything, of course!

            The servants here are simple - the order is, it means it must be executed, even if you do not like it. Another thing is for what purpose this was done and why. It reminds me of the renaming of the traffic police in the traffic police and the police in the police. There are no intelligible answers and explanations, but there is only bullshit from high-ranking officials and the suspicion of the majority of the population that at the rename companies someone at the top is very well enriched.

        It’s not for you to get to the sanctions list, khukhra-mukhra, it costs a lot, even probably more than the next line or what medal. Imagine how other generals envy Kostyukova.

            They reacted to the popular will to return the native Russian land to Russia.
            At the same time, they did not respond to a similar statement by the people of New Russia, they stopped the advance of the militias of New Russia, preventing them from returning their administrative borders and the entire coast of the Sea of ​​Azov.
            Now we disentangle both with Abkhazia and Ossetia = this is how they climbed into Abu, took off their trousers and forgot why they started everything.
            There would still be no more sanctions, but the case would have been surrendered, and not as it is now ...

              To rephrase, the capture of Tauris by popular expression. If we are embarrassed by the words seizure, we will diminish the significance of our military, who acted brilliantly. And the fact that the ukrovoks did not even give a hoot is the pinnacle of military art. There are a number of problems in the Donbass, firstly, we do not know political secrets, and Putin knew something that we do not know. We also had to drastically take control of the Syrian shelf, we had to get ahead of NATO, we just got ahead of them, and only then cleansing the barmalei. The situation was extremely serious squadrons were facing each other, Putin proposed to destroy the chemical weapons and the collapsed Obama retreated with a proud head. There were no units on the border with Ukraine; now a decent grouping of the RF Armed Forces has been deployed. LDNR did not have an offensive potential and could fall into boilers themselves, and the NATO army could enter the territory of Ukraine at the request of Turchinov and others. We do not forget that Syria and Donbass are two fronts of the Great Gas War. And the Americans didn’t get the Donbass oil shale (although Biden personally already took everything for himself and Obama himself apparently had a share), they didn’t get the Syrian field either, like the pipe that would not be Arabian. There was a Turkish and SP-2 on the way. And what has been done or not done, believe me, it was necessary and nothing else.

      At other times, my friend’s father was a big GRU boss in one part of the world. That is why my friend was not even considered a candidate for admission to the Academy of the Soviet Army. Right now, probably no problem? Then there is a certain blat, of course. And this is wrong. It is necessary to return to the sources, and they are at the GRU - Soviet and rather tough. But then the GRU was especially successful.
      As for the orphanages, then at one time they practiced, but at the level of the troops. Did not impress. They refused.

        No reports were sent to the Academy of the Soviet Army.

        Of those with whom he studied, with whom he served, fathers below the lieutenant general were, as a rule (mentioned two).

      Blat is when your dad "works" as a resident, for example. Previously, employees' children were not taken at all. And if the senior midshipman served in the GRU, he also had no chance. Spetsnaz / MCI does not count.

      You're not right! Read the article carefully, otherwise you heard a ring and don’t know where it is. A pretzel from Ukraine. After graduating from military school that I graduated ????? And in addition to your information, Navy officers often led intelligence in different countries of the world (for example, in the UK, a doshikhpor becomes a naval officer, even in Nazi Germany, Admiral Canaris, in the United States more than once Navy officers became heads of intelligence.)

          You and I disrespectfully speak of an adversary about Nazi Germany, which is tantamount to saying that the German Wehrmacht was weak and insignificant since they lost the Red Army’s war and how did they sausage Europe? France for how much did they take? What about Poland? And returning to Admiral Canaris, you read a chronicle of Soviet counterintelligence and in general watched documentaries regarding the SUPER SUCCESSFUL work of German intelligence behind enemy lines, first in Europe and then with us. The Brandenburg battalion is what we have been told more than once, and this is one of the most successful examples of work in the initial period of the intelligence war led by Canaris. And most importantly, returning to our questions, our Kostyukov received additional education besides his basic education (military-diplomatic academy: considered an ophthalmic blacksmith for GRU officers) and look at how they say things, including not what color the uniform is.

            I absolutely agree with you. But Canaris lost in the information. As a scout for sure. He did not understand what the Allied forces were against Rommel (by the way, this was the paramount task of the SD), he did not dissuade Goering from crazy attacks on England, he did not cover Dönitz boats (they received incorrect coordinates). In the end, he ended up in the party ... But it’s clear in which (though, how Rommel lied to him). And the war was in full swing!
