    Okay, at least Shoigu has a head on his shoulders.
    Although he did not make a laughing stock from his department!
    Armed Forces must protect the country.
    It’s a pity you can’t protect her from fools ... wink

      a question was asked about the possible abolition of the spring conscription due to coronavirus.

      And what, in that case, as they said during the years of my service - "Dembel is in danger?!"
      It turned out no! "Dembel is inevitable as the collapse of capitalism." But the saying remained in ancient history, and we in capitalism. But the demobilization will still go home!

        It should be, they will serve and any virus in our Army is cured !!!!

        It is a pity, the Minister of Defense at one time did not find a way to the draft board. Confused, poor thing.

    And they kept us in quarantine for a month — with all the call — 200 souls, in one cabin * (barracks).

    That's right, the new virus is not scary to cancel the call soldier . But still, it’s better to start on April 2nd, otherwise the First of April is somehow not serious)))

    In S.A., when I was in the washroom, the posters were hanging, about hygiene, hardening of the body, and it was possible to enter there in the morning with a bare torso, and even the senior call, which showed an example, kept track of it, the result was not seriously ill with urgent nirazu .

    It is true that the call is not moved, much less canceled.
    If the call comes later, and the demobilization is on time, then in the army the shortage of ordinary conscripts will increase by more than 100 thousand people. This is despite the fact that in the army the shortage of military personnel is already about 200 thousand people. compared with the staff of 1 million people. That is, the army will be staffed only 2/3 of the staff, which we have so ridiculed chickens. In the army of South Korea, there are not many less employees already than in the Russian Armed Forces. The DPRK army has 1,5 times more troops than ours.
    In general, it’s not right that the call breaks down because of an epidemic. The army should always be ready to meet any danger, including biological. Parts of chemical and biological protection still exist. But if these parts are in a dysfunctional state, then this is very bad. Since the risk of using biological weapons has not been canceled. Russia is in the ring of secret US military bio-laboratories. While around the United States there is not a single military biological laboratory in Russia.
    Imagine the use of weapons against Russia, even biological, even conventional - is this a reason to postpone the configuration of the Armed Forces? On the contrary, procrastination will lead to defeat. In case of danger to society, the Armed Forces should be strengthened and increased.
    If the military draft is really transferred to us, then I personally will not have the idea that the country's leadership is trying to protect the population from the coronavirus, but will have the idea that the country's leadership does not understand that it is the army that should take on the assistance function fighting an epidemic if that epidemic is truly deadly.
    In Ukraine and in a number of European countries, it seems they decided to postpone or completely cancel the draft in the army during the spread of the coronavirus. The price of an army that cannot defend itself against an epidemic is worthless.

    And what is the point of transferring? And so it is clear that in part it will all be, as usual. We also sent children to infectious boxes, brought any infection or picked it up while we were getting there.
