March 29 - Day of the Legal Service Specialist in the Armed Forces of Russia

14

Every year on March 29, Russia celebrates the Day of the Legal Service Specialist in the Armed Forces. This is one of the youngest professional holidays of the Russian military, because it was first celebrated in 2007. It was approved by the decree of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin on March 31, 2006.


Since then, on March 29, the leaders of the state and the command of the Russian Armed Forces have been congratulating military lawyers, and those who have distinguished themselves are awarded awards, certificates of honor, and valuable gifts. They are given gratitude and extraordinary military ranks.

And although Russian military lawyers had their professional holiday quite recently, specialists in this industry began to appear in our country soon after professional, regular Armed Forces were first formed. This happened at the beginning of the 18th century, during the reign of the first Russian emperor, Peter the Great. It was then that military lawyers first began to serve in our army.

Today, the specialists of the legal service in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation include employees of the military prosecutor's office, military courts and tribunals, as well as other bodies of military justice. In addition, representatives of the legal service are engaged in teaching relevant disciplines in higher educational institutions under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

The editorial board of "Voenniy Obozreniye" heartily congratulates the specialists of the legal service of the Russian Armed Forces, guarding the rule of law, on their professional holiday! We wish you, dear military lawyers, good health, prosperity and successful service.

      Happy Holidays, of course, legal experts! But in my opinion, such military lawyers even during Stalin's time were precisely legal experts and with great powers. Or I'm wrong ?

        Even surprisingly, in light of the situation on the site in recent years, I expected an explosion of screams about the lady in general's uniform in the photo before the article. I waited, as it usually happened, yelling in the style of: "ahhh, who are the titles awarded? For what?", But strange as it may seem about the photo, the silence and it pleases. Comments on the existence of the service of military lawyers and the results of their work, and not on who, where, with whom and for what lol

      No desire to comment. Sad and disgusting.

    Today, the specialists of the legal service in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation include employees of the military prosecutor's office, military courts and tribunals, as well as other bodies of military justice. In addition, representatives of the legal service are engaged in teaching relevant disciplines in higher educational institutionsunder the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

    What nonsense.
    The author does not distinguish between the concept of military lawyers working in military justice bodies - military courts, military prosecutor's office, the legal service of the RF Armed Forces, teachers in higher educational institutions, etc. and the legal service, as a separate structural unit of the RF Armed Forces.
    Thus, it is the military lawyers of the JUS of the RF Armed Forces that belong to the military justice authorities, and not the Supreme Court of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
    And then the kind and gullible members of the forum will think that all military lawyers work in the JUS of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation ...., in addition YUS is now called the Legal Department.
    Modern military lawyers - officers with a military legal specialization, filling positions in the military prosecutor's office, military courts, military justice bodies, among the teaching staff of military universities. For military lawyers, military ranks are established with the prefix "justice" (for example, "captain of justice").

    https://tass.ru/info/3157276
    The main tasks of the Legal Department:
    1) legal support for improving legal regulation on issues within the competence of the Ministry of Defense;
    2) legal, information-analytical and organizational support for the legislative activity of the Ministry of Defense;
    3) legal support for the activities of the Ministry of Defense in the field of international military cooperation and military-technical cooperation;
    4) organization of monitoring of law enforcement in the Ministry of Defense, participation in the work on the creation and maintenance of databases of legal information in the field of defense;
    5) legal support of certain issues of property management of the Armed Forces;
    6) legal support of contractual and claim work, organization of pre-trial settlement of disputes;
    7) organization and implementation of judicial protection of the interests of the Ministry of Defense in federal courts, courts of constituent entities of the Russian Federation and international courts;
    8) organization and implementation of methodological guidance for legal work in the Armed Forces and the activities of the legal service of the Armed Forces.

    The lawyers are great. They will never offend themselves. I remember once in the early 2000s in Khankala at the headquarters of the group in the Chechen Republic they decided to hold a training camp for military lawyers. They got together, discussed the problems and at the same time got themselves certificates of war veterans.

    Prepared at the headquarters of the Rosgvardia a festive order for the day of the military signalman, brought it to the lawyers to agree. They resisted, the holiday is at the signalmen of the Ministry of Defense, the National Guard has nothing to do with it. We went into the archives, unearthed information that in 1918 a communications division was created in the OGPU troops. From that moment on, it is now accepted to consider the day of the Rosgvardia signalman.
    In general, sheer sabotage. Draw conclusions fellow lawyers. Do the really important things, not simulate hectic activities.

    Distribute shoulder straps left and right like candy.
    For me, so any person in uniform should be able to lead any randomly formed unit and fight it out of the encirclement, as in the 41st.
    Possessing, of course, the necessary set of skills, knowledge and skills for this.
    And in addition to this, have special knowledge and skills in the field of explosives, radio electronics, geodesy and topography, encryption, jurisprudence, road construction or foreign languages.
    And then in all power structures the same thing: everywhere and always staffed positions of financiers (very high ranks), lawyers, but since the time of the USSR there is a shortage of platoon-company commanders, in the Ministry of Internal Affairs there are operas, district police officers and interrogators.
    Purely coercive: no one commander-in-chief has the right to sign any order without verification and a lawyer's visa, although the responsibility is personal, not collective.
    So it turns out: without a lawyer, nowhere. But this is a service imposed, like compulsory motor third party liability insurance or contributions for a certain overhaul.

      The strength of the RF Armed Forces is determined by specific staff units, so that shoulder straps cannot be distributed to the right and to the left ....

      You will not require the turner to know the electrical and wiring diagram of a carousel-type lathe, for example, and the ability to repair it?
      but since the time of the USSR, there was a shortage of platoon-company commanders, operatives in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, district police officers and interrogators

      Well, that is probably not the fault of military lawyers ...

    I don't know about a turner, although a good turner is an inquisitive person and probably knows.
    But the officer (which shoulder straps with asterisks mean) must be able to fight, and as a leader at the tactical level.
    Even if he doesn't have to do it in his life. Otherwise, excuse me, he is not an officer, but a disguised one.
