Military Review

Mr Serdyukov - who is he?


How do you assess the activities of A. E. Serdyukov as Minister of Defense?

Good - 33 (1.91%)
Satisfactory - 22 (1.27%)
Negatively - 1655 (95.83%)
Everything is early - 17 (0.98%)
The current defense minister is certainly ambiguous, one might even say that during his leadership A. A. Serdyukov became an odious figure for his department and the country as a whole. For what merits, he suddenly from an absolutely civilian turned into the main military specialist of the whole country, remains a mystery to many.

Having appeared on a post of the head of the main military department he began with that he decided to change the uniform of the servicemen, budgetary 100 million rubles were allocated. which have been successfully spent and dressing has been postponed. And this was only the beginning, further layoffs and resignations began, during his tenure as Minister, Mr. Serdyukov changed the top military personnel to 70 percent. Shaking shots, leaving the loyal ones, removing and removing the critically minded new minister, he decided to undertake the reform of the Russian army. To begin with, footcloths and boots were abolished as permanent elements of military uniforms!

All the rest of the reform, again, the beginning comes down to disbanding reductions and reductions, only one more new element was added, this is the optimization of all the cash flows aimed at the development of the reform in one hand, it is clear whose.

According to the minister himself, the reform is aimed at optimizing the armed forces, and cuts are necessary to reduce the expenditure of budgetary funds, let it be less personnel, but it will be better trained, armed and staffed.

I would like to ask the question: “How will the staff be better trained?” If experienced personnel soldiers are really capable of teaching something, they resign, military schools and units are reduced and disbanded and, in general, the general staff and headquarters of the main districts create an atmosphere of fear reduced and servile to those who can cut, fire, etc.

Serdyukov’s tumultuous revolutionary reform activity is sharply negatively evaluated by many military experts. First of all, it is reforms that aim at commercializing the army rather than enhancing its defense capability and professionalism that are being criticized, and the military are also not satisfied with an amateurish and purely managerial approach to solving issues relating to the country's security.

And the disrespectful attitude of the minister who allows himself publicly, from the podium to mate the leaders of his department does not withstand any criticism at all. Some military radicals against the reforms carried out by Serdyukov openly declare that these reforms will lead to the complete loss of the combat capability of the Russian army.

But most likely, the minister doesn’t care much; he is more concerned with expanding and improving his ministerial apartments; ten billion rubles were allocated for the renovation of the ministry’s building, despite the fact that our reformer advocates budget cuts.

It remains only to hope that what the head of the military department can create for himself comfort and comfort at his workplace will still study military issues and increase his competence in this matter. Otherwise, the future military failures, which only due to some miracle did not happen in Ossetia, the Russian army cannot be avoided.

    It seems to me that he is a Jewish Jew and his daughter is married to a rabbi in Israel. Here you have a bargainer. He, like Vova, is tied to the Jews for life, and as for the armies, they need a police officer to water us at home.

    it is strange that all wise men have one forehead wrinkle. smart ones have more, read. His creations resemble the obvious wrecking and betrayal of his country, so wave the scythe over the heads of the army. change their clothes from Yudashkin for such amounts (I live in a military town, I haven’t seen a new uniform), so treat former officers. who served honestly to their homeland for 25-30 years. The conclusion suggests itself - fulfilling someone's assignment, black ... I do not think that the Army will tolerate this! One was to bury the reformer, the second did not go to the troops - he got scared ... God, where is decent Russia?

    Quote: Natalia
    (I live in a military town, something I have not seen a new form),

    In this "mold" I took part in the parade on Red Square, I will say the following ... The uniform looks, but terribly inconvenient and poorly sewn. Dropped trousers, a shirt with pidarovytochki, a very low cut of the lapels on the jacket, and when you hang medals and aiguillette, you had to pin everyone from the inside with pins. The army was thrown onto the uniform ...

    Is it possible that the example of the Minister of War Sukhomlinov a century ago taught nothing so Stolypin, dying, asked Nicholas II: "Sovereign, remove this man, he will ruin everything." We love to step on a rake.

    As an officer, or in the future reserve officer, I propose to consider the topic: "Report of Mr. Serdyukov to the US Secretary of Defense, and if it is correct, then to the United States. This topic somehow passed by and quietly, but the fact that this person is information that is in all armies all over America? So who works for whom?

    I know cutting and sewing courses about officers I haven’t heard. They’re not fooling our brother, I don’t understand why the president promised to return from vacation ...

    and now he returned, sat down in his chair and let the mothers of colonels of the Heroes of RUSSIA swear disgrace to such ministers in RESIGNATION - back to the furniture store to sell sofas!

    what's the point of poisoning the soul, nothing will change after all, Zubkov’s son-in-law who appointed him as Prime Minister of the Russian Federation
