Does the resignation of "army juicer" Salamatin shine?

The events that have recently unfolded around the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine vividly confirm the tendencies that arose with the assumption of the post of Minister Dmitry Salamatin, and which immediately after this appointment indicated “Khvil”.

In particular, we wrote that immediately after his appointment to the post of minister, without delving into any nuances of the functioning of the Armed Forces, Salamatin “from the start” in the new position had a burning desire to spend an inventory in the Armed Forces, so that everything that can be done to sell. The first orders of the new leadership ordered the heads of the structures of the Ministry of Defense to urgently determine the land, facilities, equipment and property to be put up for sale.

On the basis of the very first decisions of Salamatin, we concluded: the task of this gentleman is not to strengthen, reform, develop the Armed Forces, but to drain everything that is possible from the army and “transform” this potential into living money. In fact, as the current adviser to Yanukovych, Mikhail Yezhel, at the post of minister, saw his highest mission in selling the army, this vision was completely and unconditionally preserved by the assignee. For both, the army is a big manger from which you need to quickly and efficiently squeeze everything worthy of a monetary assessment. (In fairness, we note that this is only a particular part of the general philosophy of the current government, looking at Ukraine exclusively as that very large feeder).

The difference between Ezhel and Salamatin is that the first is an amateur, an amateur. He acted well, squeezing the last juices out of the army, but nevertheless unorganized: he saw where he could snitch, and immediately sniffed. But we admit that there was a serious organized approach there. Plus, as a former military man, Yezhel sometimes, in the short breaks between the main occupation, thought about combat training. Well, since material resources were needed for something else, he forced the army to engage in any nonsense such as “mining” the parade grounds in military units and “forcing” water barriers in the form of roadside ditches at the checkpoint, ”this was called“ to carry out military training activities on the order fund ” . Well, at least, - as they say, on bezrybe and bra belt.

In Salamatin, firstly, as a person insanely distant from the army, there are no complexes about combat training, which means that nothing distracts him from the exciting activity called “deriban”. And secondly, in his actions the hand of the pros is felt - today at the Ministry of Defense everything is clearly organized, everyone knows very well how to act, i.e. how much and where to “unfasten”. Those who were stupid and did not drive into the dense Salamatin schedule, or did not master the established norms, have long since left for a citizen.

But the most important difference between Ezhel and Salamatin is that the first is the protege of Yuri Ivanyushchenko, he is “Yura Yenakiyevsky”, while Salamatin is known to be a member of the “family” of Yanukovich. The "family" did not long understand what the military sphere was different from the sphere of the military-industrial complex, and decided that it would be more convenient to centralize both "feeders", having concentrated the controls in one hand. Thus, Ukraine received the Minister of Defense, who, after his appointment, continues to steer and the defense industry, and to which the army as such, seems to be of very little interest.

The fact that even after a few months Salamatin very vaguely imagines the processes occurring recently in the Armed Forces, and their causes and consequences, is vividly illustrated by his performance in the Rada as part of the action entitled “On the state and prospects of development of the Military Organization and Security Sector of Ukraine "at the end of May this year. Then, Salamatin, not including brains, following the example of his elder comrades, identified the “culprits” as the main culprit of all the troubles of the army, and at the same time he managed not to mention a single number characterizing the state of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and not to name a single strategic decision to correct the situation. Instead, Salamatin as a real clown defiantly rolled up his sleeves and said that he was going to "work", and was going to report back not earlier than in a year.

About the "work" of Salamatin we just find out today, when relevant documents began to get into the media. Breeding cattle and growing all agricultural structures in a row (sorry, according to the documents, except rice), including (quote) “berries, nuts and other fruits”, selling everything that is possible - from property to land and objects, is the lot Ukrainian military led by the great strategist Salamatin.

In his activities, we see only one “side” plus — redirecting the Ministry of Defense’s financial flows to the defense channel, the current minister at the very least provides for the repair and return to service of weapons and military equipment. It would seem, what's the difference that drives a comrade, the main thing is a positive result for the army! But even here there are two “buts” that do not allow us to climb with open arms and congratulations to the minister.

First of all, no one tells us how many parallel to the same equipment and weapons "disappears" from the army, being transferred to defense enterprises in exchange for repair services. And what's the point of having one fighter repaired, if on account of that ten was “lost”? And secondly, what is the point of repairing armaments, if specialists in the army disappear "as a class" who can turn to them? If the term "combat training" in the army is forgotten, how obsolete terminology?

And all this - against the backdrop of bravura assurances of some incomprehensible victories and achievements. As for combat training, I’m willing to argue with anyone for anything: autumn will come, traditional final exercises in the Armed Forces will begin, and in the troops they will spend fragmentary, miserable and "neutered", purely show-off exercises maximum to the battalion level, and then using the press -the services of the Ministry of Defense will turn this pure water into the media into powerful maneuvers of the Ukrainian army. We already did this at Yezhel, and his successor, Salamatin, has not yet given us a reason to think that his intellect is enough for his own creativity.

The press service of the Ministry of Defense, following the example of its chief, is dusting the eyes, calling out black with white with worthy surprise. The documents published by the media signed by D. Salamatin said that “in order to bring the types of economic activity that military units, institutions, institutions and organizations of the Armed Forces are allowed to carry out”, the Ministry of Defense developed a draft Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers “On Amending the List of Economic Activities , the implementation of which is allowed to the military units of the Armed Forces ", according to which the army is allowed to breed cattle, sheep, horses, grow berries and fruits, engage in fish fishing ", etc.

And the press service of the Ministry of Defense today sends out a "refutation" in which it is toldonit: yes, it was not Salamatin who wrote about the Armed Forces! (The text of "refute" it is stated: "the aforesaid types dіyalnostі (rozvedennyam thinness, pigs, ptitsі) zaymayutsya INSHI vіyskovі formuvannya, SSMSC not included to the sphere upravlіnnya Mіnіsterstva Defense of Ukraine" - well, so clear the stump, for Salamatin and requested that he, but rather his soldiers were also allowed to breed cows). Well, who is this bredyatina calculated? In the text of Salamatina, the wording “Armed forces” sounds twice, and the Defense Ministry states that this is not a question of the army.

A lie, a lie and a lie again.

... And yet, with all the punctures of Salamatin, we do not think that this figure is expected by the immediate resignation. The scheme of emptying the army "trough" is too beautifully woven. And too, the current Minister of Defense harmoniously looks in the team of similar carefully selected “juicers” of Yanukovych in various spheres of activity of the state, headed by the head of the “family” himself.

    Shines but does not warm laughing In general, lately there have been many articles burying the Ukrainian army and navy, as the classic says, "it's not casual about it" laughing At one time, the same (or maybe more) stream of negativity rained down on the Russian army, but they survived angry I wish the Ukrainian army and navy to go through a difficult (troubled) time and, like the Phoenix bird, "will be reborn from the ashes"

      Firstly, the devil is not so terrible as he is painted. I want to ask the author. and who was better? Or when, under the Yushchenko ministers, they learned horse riding on foot. And then Yekhanurov sold the ZiL-157 at the price of a Ferrari. When the patriot Gritsenkko said that not a damn thing works for us and we need to join NATO. How many real exercises have been conducted from 2005-2009? Only on SeaBreeze for American money. Money was not always allocated for the "Kozatskaya Steppe". But the parade in 2008, in order to scare the neighbor - found the money.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iypScuXdKJ4
      Bulats could be bought only in 2005, when money was allocated under Chuchma. Or the beginning and the end of the 90s, when at the beginning they taught moronic Ukrainian teams (they were later canceled) or when there were no solariums and mechanics learned to drive "to the fence" and the batteries of self-propelled guns were left at the range under protection, so we do not retreat. Not that simple. One Kraz on the platform pulls in turn 9 self-propelled guns into the fields, and there they are lowered almost by hand. The result of combat training is a missile in Brovary and a Tu-154 over the sea.

        Splin,
        Let's speak directly and without illusions - at this time, the Ukrainian army as such does not exist (no, it is in the papers, but in reality ...?) weapons are not purchased, even the existing ones are not properly modernized - NO FUNDS ... yes , development is underway. but the developers themselves understand that they do not work for the state, but for foreign customers (if they buy it), because it is easier for the government to create a "public law enforcement service" than to allocate funds for the state's defense ... request
        a state that does not feed its army will feed another's (God forbid)

          Uv radikdan79... If the last digits represent the year, then you must remember what happened to the army in the late 90s. And how the officers lived then. I was then "paid a lot" as an old man. There was no point in even getting married. It was not realistic to feed a family for 72 dollars.

      The very first orders of the new leadership ordered the heads of the municipal structures to urgently determine the lands, objects, equipment and property that will be put up for sale.



      there’s only one question --- where the money will go, and the Ukrainian Armed Forces have too much excess property that stupidly decays and rusts. If the money goes to the army’s needs, I’m only for it.

      And the sense of the fact that one fighter was repaired, if ten were “lost” in the bill for this?

      And what are some documents? Give them to the Byutovites they will ring the whole world. And either one working plane, or 10 piles of scrap metal, even though I think this is a literary hyperbole.

      Aleksey67,
      as long as people far from the army stand "at the helm" of the Armed Forces, there will be no business! What relation does a specialist (if a specialist) in the mechanization of underground mining of mineral deposits (namely, in this profile Dmitry Salamatin received higher education) have to the army? (military service does not count)
      I repeat - in order to solve the problems of the army, "at the helm" there must be a professional who knows and understands the REAL problems and needs of the army ... what yes

        Daniel, I completely agree with you, but I propose to look at the situation from a slightly different angle. The Ukrainian army is currently being reformed and this has to be done by "cutting on the living". Put a bunch of friends at the head of the general, those also have friends and it turns out "mutual responsibility" and "personal interest." In our case, a man came from the outside, "chopped off all unnecessary" and gave up the chair to a professional officer, and he already rules, having no "vengeful subordinates" and ill-wishers.

          Aleksey67,
          is the Ukrainian army reformed? - do you believe it? no, I'm not a fatalist, and I try to see things realistically. in 1998-99. I served in the Armed Forces of Ukraine on conscription. at that time, the Ukrainian army was far from being in the most combat-ready state (although he served in a combat unit - round-the-clock combat duty) and I know not by hearsay about the "hardships and hardships of the army service". I still communicate with my commanders. and they themselves say that it was a "white line" in the life of the army ... so you yourself understand ...

            [The white line in the life of the army. There was 95-96 year, when moronic Ukrainization was over and the whole materiel was still .. And in the 98th, the fighters on our Zils twirled the jets and worked on the gas pedals like a sewing machine. Solyara for self-propelled guns was only in the NZ. Aircraft were lifted into the air only on combat duty, and then one by one

              as it was in 95-96gg. I won’t speak, because I don’t know (at that time I just finished school, and was far from the army). I am writing about the army that I myself saw. fed normally, firing constantly, and the condition of the equipment was satisfactory (served as a driver). although I saw the equipment in the warehouses of NZ - a sad sight. and my peers, who served in other military units, saw nothing but outfits and household jobs ... I don’t think that now the situation has improved ...

                Our fighters also shot, but they stomped 10 km back to the training ground for 10 km. All equipment, now and then even more so, it was working. With fuel were problematic and with ammunition, never. When cadets came to us for an internship, already in the 99-2000th they fired day and night. The army began to emerge from the peak, but then came the fall of 2004. and all went only KS teachings on the maps.

      The point here is not even in the army, but in the fact that before the elections, the Family set an amount for each state-owned enterprise and organization, which must be transferred once a month to the top for elections. Who did not pay the rent, went out. So the army should breed cattle and pick berries, or Solomatin will follow the ferns. Well, the tax and other inspection bodies are working on private firms, since they also have a plan.

    I don’t think that the Ukrainian army should be strong, with some anti-Russian sentiments of our brothers, especially in the west. I think that they have enough strength for self-defense, but this is their business. You must think about yourself first. If Ukraine were our ally, then the question of the Ministry of Defense, in the sense of strengthening the defense capability of Ukraine, would be in great demand for us.

    Now the attack is on all fronts that power is stealing everywhere and stuffing its fat pockets.
    One question is why the heck to create enterprises in this country for oligarchs if you do not plan to profit from them? Then to sell a cheap price? Ukrrspetsexport is inundated with orders for new equipment and modernization of the old. They do not sell old trash. Ukroboronexport - works both for the country and for the cordon. Naturally there are kickbacks. But it would not be them, we would have found some other garbage.
    The West can only control small and weak states. Even specifically for this, they accelerated the collapse of Yugoslavia. And with Ukraine it's harder, it's not a federation, and here you need to "put your man on the throne"

      Very few fans came - all these statistics are "pasta on the ears". The fan zones are half-empty, the Dutch arrived at 10 thousand - this is the maximum of fans from European countries, it's a shame - at other championships they came to 50 thousand. Euro is a huge failure and it is far from the fact that Germany and Spain will reach the final, they will not refuse to play in Kiev (there was such a rumor).

        Trust more money on the benches. I was in Donetsk and Kiev (though at our games) and I even saw a crowd of people on the 15th in a downpour. And from the fan zone then we just went to other places. Probably your leader is Tomenko, who said that if they played in Lviv, they would definitely win, because the city is more Ukrainian than Donetsk. Take "pasta from the ears" to someone else who has not gone further than his block. And this is in everything. It is necessary to focus not only on the media, but also on the stories of people.

And the people of Kiev themselves say that there are very few of them, the fan zone is half empty, my boss keeps his network of cafes in Kiev - he says that according to the results of the euro, he just flew into the loot, attendance is much lower than expected and does not exceed the same during World Cup 2010

          And the fact that crap specifically - a fact. What are the incidents in Boryspil - the media immediately spread out, empty hotels (foreigners don’t want to pay a lot), lack of capital inflow (it turns out the money is withdrawn through cards, at the internal rate of their banks), and the cost of new trains Donetsk-Kiev and Lvov- Kiev - three costs of old routes. For what? - For the difference in following at 3 o’clock? .. This is despite the fact that these trains managed to break down several times. In Ukraine, there were already three teams (out of 16) - let's not comment on why.

            Because your boss is greedy and stupid like all our businessmen. Raised prices in such a way as to go to zero in a month. He was in Europe and knows. that the bourgeois pay dearly for a product if it is worth it. Fans and fanatics are different words. And when they swell, you can tell them from ours only by varnyakan. Naturally, you have not seen the crowds of foreigners. It was not Napoleon who came with his army, where they were all a herd. And our fan zones are designed for us and the Russians. Those who live according to the principle of Russian "maybe". Busurman fans without tickets mostly thump at home.

              You know my boss badly - it can be greedy (although it pays me enough), but he’s definitely not stupid. He keeps the restaurant business for the sake of pleasure, the main business brings millions, and this is not the extraction of mineral resources lying on the ruin as deputies from the PR.

              The prices in his establishments did not change. And as for the rest, you have just admitted yourself - EURO is a concrete failure of power. Here they are yelling about success - and the point is, "obisralis" in full.

              For example, when going to the Teatralnaya metro station in Kiev, you have to go through the fan zone, where the counter will "count" you into the unprecedented success of the authorities in terms of Euro attendance, although you just go to the metro station about your business. How many random visitors to the European Championship pass in a day?

              Not funny? It is necessary to plant noodles for such noodles, I hope all the next authorities will plant their predecessors - then there is a chance that in a few "generations of power" in our country they will work and not hang noodles as everything is good

                EURO didn’t fail. The expectations of our business, which is used to earnings, failed. The apartments in Odessa and Kiev are worth more than the respectable areas of Paris or London. But in Russia it’s even cooler. For money from a hut in Odessa, you can buy an equivalent area only in Yeysk. But we buy such houses ....

            In Boryspil, Aєrosvit went to bed. And this happens over the hill. The year before last, Heathrow froze over a volcano. Last year, Aeroflot screwed up with tourists in Bulgaria. And about speed Hyunday I did not ride I do not know. He does not go from Odessa to Donetsk, but I also think that prices are high. Better to go in a compartment. Debts and plump can be normal. And they withdraw cash from the ATM at the rate of the bank that this safe put. As for prefabricated PR, he did his job, but this is not an indicator. French football players were in Donetsk. and there lived more English in the city.

              PR has one feature - it is true, not a lie. The only difference is how to file it. And if power was screwed up in such an elementary question, then only this already testifies to the fact that they are full downs

                It can be said that I, too, are at a loss from Euro-no active politics. No counseling for our bonuses.

              Hyundai is not comfortable but fast, which I rode on, was late for only half an hour feel You can also drink in Hyundai, there are comfortable tables, although Schaub should leave his seat (2nd grade), the other two neighbors must have come out (if you are sitting by the window). On the second trip in my car the air conditioner broke, and I sweat very much :-) In Hyundai, there are young, cute, and friendly conductors and conductors. After Euro, nihto will not voluntarily go to them for such money. But Boria Kolesnikoff will force it by canceling the competitive "regular" trains. I went to the matches in a reserved seat, but our reserved seat is still bad. It was funny to contemplate the British neighbors, they did not expect to find themselves in this hell of heat, smells of food, closed toilets, protruding legs in torn socks on the aisle, and a huge lazy conductor who did not let people go to the station platform to gulp air and buy something cold.

    Beating a citizen. 2010 year beat the chair of the director of the tenant company “Termokholod” Yuri Kiselev. The legal consequences of beating D. Salamatin to a citizen did not have.
    Citizenship and illegal deputies in BP. year 2012. In accordance with the Law on the Election of People's Deputies of Ukraine, which was in force at the time of the 2007 election, a citizen of Ukraine who was 21 years old at the time of the election, was a citizen of Ukraine and had lived in Ukraine for at least five years could become a deputy. Thus, the question of the legality of the election of D. Salamatin as a people's deputy remained open. But he was "clouded" by BP speaker Vladimir Litvin, a situational PR ally.
    Fighting in Parliament He participated in all the fights that took place in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
    Minister of cattle. year 2012 The Mirror of the Week publication published documents according to which Defense Minister D. Salamatin turned to the Cabinet with a proposal to add 78 new types of economic activity to military units. Among them - raising cattle, buffaloes and poultry, grazing pigs, sheep and goats, growing berries, nuts and “other fruits”.
    Also, the military units of the Ukrainian army will be engaged in the cultivation of grain and industrial crops, and even decorative gardening. The army units also have the task of selling grain, processed tobacco and animal feed, wholesale of live animals. In the statutory activities of enterprises of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine also remain the trade in alcoholic beverages, food and restaurant business ...
    Here is how Ukrainian military experts speak about it
    Valentin Badrak, Army, Conversion and Disarmament Research Center
    HIS WORK WASN'T MADE HOPES ON HIS MANAGING ABILITIES
    I do not associate with this appointment the probability of quick and high-quality reforms in the army. The reasons are not only in the personality of Salamatin. The state has no resources, the army is in a severe impasse due to non-financing. And all the rearmament projects are currently unfinished, with the exception of the Mi-24 helicopter modernization project. Back in 2010, a modernized car was supposed to appear. But she did not appear. The problem of defense and modernization of the army problem number 1. The success of the reforms depends on the political will of the president and the prime minister, on how strong is the desire to lead the army out of the crisis.

    Nikolai Sungurovsky, director of military programs at the Razumkov center
    HIS BEHAVIOR IS NOT A CHARACTERISTIC OF A MINISTER, IT IS A CHARACTERISTIC OF POWER
    If we talk about a new assignment, then the Armed Forces, it is likely to not help. And the individual groups that contributed to the appointment will help for sure.
    At the post of head of Ukroboronprom, Salamatin did not particularly show himself. He did not express any breakthrough ideas, no noticeable actions were committed. From communicating with employees of the department, I know that things went very badly there. When appointing Salamatin, I had hopes that he was a good crisis manager. Although I clearly understood that he was not a strategic manager. But my hopes were not realized. The way he behaves with opponents is not a minister’s characteristic, but a characteristic of the government or even of the country. In a normal country, such behavior would be considered incompatible with the official position.
    At the same time, one should not duplicate the opinion that the disasters of the army are in the absence of money. Trouble in the army due to poor management. A person with systemic thinking and moral foundations and authority will earn for the army, and means. This is what I call a strategic manager.
    However, there is no strategic manager not only in the army, he is not in the state.:

      As for combat training, I’m ready to argue with anyone about anything: autumn will come, the traditional final exercises in the Armed Forces will begin, and the troops will conduct fragmentary squalid and “castrated”, purely ostentatious exercises to the maximum to the battalion level, and then with the help of the press - The Ministry of Defense’s services will turn this show-off into a media into powerful maneuvers of the Ukrainian army. We have already done this under Yezhel, and his successor Salamatin has not yet given us reason to think that his intellect is enough for his own creativity.


      Against the background of this conclusion, I was very pleased with the following news
      “On June 18, more than 7 troops under a contract of the Western Military District (ZVO) went into the woods for a week,” Colonel Andrei Bobrun, head of the district’s press service, told AiF. - They have to conduct independent combat operations, equip places for an overnight stay, make fire, seek and cook food in the wild. During the field exit, which is the final exam of a six-week course of intensive combined arms training, the units will have to make a march of 50 km over rough terrain, force rivers and swamps. ZVO was the first in the Armed Forces to begin testing the professional preparedness of contract soldiers. The decision on the future fate of those who did not cope with the tests will be made by certification commissions. ”

      Finally, they began to deal with real PSUs and not stamp with parade signs. Balm on the heart if it's true! Only a week will not be enough, although for starters it’s bread too.

    And the press service of the Ministry of Defense ....
    Not quite the topic, but! Wherever you look, central, regional, regional and local structures of the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the prosecutor's office, etc. "overloaded with specialists" from press centers, as a rule, in ranks of which real officers, operatives and investigators do not even dream of!
    It seems that they are the "workhorses" in the relevant structures, and the rest of the divisions are just auxiliary services! How many of these specialists are there in general? Probably a small army - based on family, protectionist and other principles!

    Here one fellow member of the forum reproaches the author of the article that the article is "ches", there is no evidence of squandering. There is living proof. Our renowned Odessa military hospital of the Ministry of Defense, the same age as Odessa, is first cut by more than half, from 650 to 300 beds (new states have recently arrived), and then, over the next 2 years, it will be disbanded completely, or transferred to Dnepropetrovsk (but the first option is more likely). Most of the buildings and buildings have already been completely sold; a banal reason hinders the faster liquidation of the hospital. Namely, the lack of funds for the liquidation itself. Anyone interested in the history of the hospital, just to understand what kind of a unique military medical institution, look in the net, you won't regret it. Thank you for your attention.

      The head of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Dmitry Salamatin has no idea about the army or about the problems of defense and security. The leader of the Civic Position party, ex-head of the defense department Anatoly Gritsenko is convinced of this. In an interview with Lenta.ru, he said that “for Salamatin, the corps, the brigade are one and the same. That the plane Su-25, Su-24, Su-27 - no difference. " “For him, the command and control system is headquarters buildings that can be sold. What can such a person reform? Moreover, with a powerful grasping reflex, the desire not to create, but to sell, ”- said Gritsenko. He also recalled that Salamatin proposed to the government to return pigsties to the army, the duty to raise buffaloes, cows and goats. “Is this really what his reform is about? If you talk to the military, I think they will describe the situation under Salamatin in the framework of censorship in one word: "Trouble!" They saw a lot in the army, but this has not happened yet, ”said Gritsenko.

      Here is an excerpt from the article. He drives everything. With this dog, the OISV was dispersed because there are less patriots here than in the Lviv "PTU".
      The modern MO must be an administrator and he does not have to know how the attack aircraft differs from the scorer or from the IFS.
      This is the work of the chief of the General Staff. And then our generals are always preparing for the past war. The Russian army of the Afghan type encountered the more modern Georgian army. Here are just no warriors from the Georgians - and therefore almost no resistance.

    Military construction of less than 1% of GDP is simply pointless.

    If there is no way to increase funding, then the army must be cut to such an amount that the allocated funds become sufficient.

    I go to almost every Euro match. Games of the Ukrainian team at the stadium, others - at the fan zone. There were very few foreigners in Donetsk to France, but many Ukrainians laughing There are a lot of Swedes and Englishmen, although they say that more would have come. The Spaniards and the Portuguese are not too big. The fan zone in Kiev is packed, in Donetsk it is also interesting, but it is really out of the way in the park near the old stadium, although it seems not far away. But I was there only once, in the afternoon before Khrantsyi ... As for Salamatin ... But nothing! Can not understand anything. Donetsk, more precisely about regional, began to break, to be appointed, to return to the structures of the Ministry of Defense even with the arrival of Pedchenko. Any changes for the better or for the worse are not particularly noticeable, the military hopes for an increase in salaries, and for something good (such as building apartments for people on the waiting list). but there is no radical change. True, Salamatin drew on a certain concept of the next reduction of pebbled skin under the name Army wassat The total number of l / s with civil servants to the heap should have been up to 100 thousand. For 2 years, purely well-intentioned! Schaub then the remaining well lived! am But it seems like this rationalization proposal was buried ... There are some hopes that the regionals will begin to buy, repair and modernize weapons. Well, not from patriotism there, but they are simply tied, among other things, to real production, for example, Boguslaev Motorsichsky stands well in the PR, and they know how to have their own kickback bonuses on state orders of real production (like in Euro). The Pomeranchians had bonuses on their finances (they devalued the currency, supported the banks with a "financial instrument", etc.), without delving into the real sector, headed mainly by the regionals and sympathizers.

      In the "outskirts" - this is at Tekstilshchik - for the people of Kiev as in Troyeshchina, for the people of Odessa as on Pascot and not in the central park of Shcherbakov. You just need to know the structure of Donetsk. He has no real center. Everything from the Lenin monument within a radius of 3 km is the center, even the plant. As for the Odessa hospital, for two years I hear that it is being dispersed. They are actually restructuring. There is no way for the Ministry of Defense to maintain an extra staff of doctors. When were you in that hospital? The lion's share of patients are civilians. Whom they pay is not known, but there are no places for pensioners of the Moscow region in the admission department. I also feel sorry for the territory where Pirogov worked, but if you remember what Yusch and Gritsenko did with OISV, then the situation with the hospital is not so terrible. Who from Odessa was then on artukh will not be allowed to lie. Everything is overgrown, the barracks without frames, almost rolling tumbleweeds. And now the institute - now the Academy, though with a scratch, but works.

        Extra staff? There are no superfluous good doctors, but when I was, my wife works there, so I go there more often than I would like and I know this "kitchen" very well from the inside. As for civilians, they really do not know who and where, but mostly grandfathers are lying there - retirees in the overwhelming mass.
