Day of the legal service specialist in the Armed Forces

Day of the legal service specialist in the Armed Forces

Today in the Armed Forces of Russia lawyers celebrate their professional holiday. Officially, the holiday is called the Day of the Legal Service Specialist in the RF Armed Forces.


Holiday in the Armed Forces is one of the youngest. It was first celebrated in 2007 on the basis of a presidential decree of May 31, 2006. In the mentioned decree signed by Vladimir Putin, it was noted that the creation of this holiday is a recognition of the merits of military specialists in solving the tasks of ensuring the defense and security of the state.

Specialists of the legal service solve a variety of problems related to the legal support of official activities of all types and branches of the armed forces. These are the regulation of legal relations in units and formations, the observance of the rule of law and law in the troops, the improvement of legislation aimed at increasing the combat readiness of troops, and the norms for their use in peacetime and wartime on the territory of the Russian Federation and beyond.

A separate type of activity of lawyers in the Armed Forces of Russia is judicial protection of the interests of military command and control bodies, preparation of draft laws and by-laws in the field of further development of the Armed Forces.

Military lawyers have the responsibility to prepare international military treaties and agreements on military-technical cooperation, including cooperation on the sale of modern domestic weapons to one or another foreign partner.

      Well, firstly, military lawyers were almost always. The term “lawyer” unites all people involved in diverse professional legal activities - judges, prosecutors, investigators, lawyers, notaries, lawyers in organizations, lawyers involved in private practice and others. Who in this category offended you?

    Well, yes, first you need to enact laws that, they say, without lawyers you can’t sign a single order, here it is a handmade “necessity” out of the blue.
    I can imagine how amazed Zhukov, Konev, or Rokossovsky would have been that until the lawyer put a scribble that “everything fits” - you cannot sign an order to storm Berlin. But they took it, Berlin. Illegally, it turns out, without legal expertise ... How so?
    PS I sincerely wish this service to disappear from the ranks of the Defense Ministry. If you need some kind of SMU to work with contractors, then let it remain in civil status.

        Yes, they didn’t want to defend me. True, they did not forget about themselves.

      man-made "need" out of the blue.

      I support unconditionally! good
      Not a single order, instruction, regulation, etc. now fails without a "legal examination". They bred bureaucrats in uniform, and they felt their significance and commas and fonts are corrected 5 times, but the words change places !!!

    You do not confuse the legal service with military courts and military prosecutors. Not to mention the inquiry, the freelance investigators dealt with it in many ways, for example, without interruption from the company command and guard orders, I was both a freelance interrogator and a lay judge in a military court.
    Can a legal officer be able to command a company? Or in general with anything of military importance? If not, then why did they put epaulettes on him?
