        Dear forum users and forum users! I understand that about the dead or good or nothing ... hi Therefore, I will only talk about the duties of the Minister of Defense. If you took this post on your hump, then carry it with honor and be kind enough to be responsible for the defense capability of the country (USSR) !!! And if you feel the trepidation give an order to bring down the violator of the airspace of the country, then with a shovel to you on the ridge !!!
        Imagine for a moment that a nuclear warhead was being transported in an airplane and would have exploded after landing .... recourse How many ? 10% of the country's population? Well, even less, but the whole Government ... Next we think ...
        Remember the Boeing was shot down, and all the way, but here the "cornman" was "escorted" several times and allowed to enter Red Square ... am
        Let rest in Peace, but for me he is nobody hi

          Who is WHO, and who is NOBODY. This is not for you to decide. History decides.

          Marshal Sokolov left behind not only the good memory of the army and the mountain of affairs useful to the Fatherland, but also worthy heirs: his two sons became colonel generals.

          His name - the long-lived Marshal - was included in the Russian Book of Records. But the main record of Marshall is serving the Fatherland. The warlord of a unique and bright fate, which is deeply “pressed” into the history of the Patronymic, has left us.

          You can’t reach him. He was a MAN, a WARRIOR. Unlike some who can only write negative.

          moron "tanks of bedbugs do not crush" he did not make the decision to shoot down or not shoot down, this is the level of chiefs with a lower rank. For you he is "nobody", but for me a soldier who defended the country during the war and gave me the opportunity to live in Russia.
          And now compare yourself with him, what you have done for the country in his years and do not be fooled, you are NOBODY and your name is a blocher without a clan and tribe. And his name is eternal and he is one of the last soldiers of the great country of the USSR.

              If I confirm comfort, you are a wise man, to be honest, over.
              I explain specifically for you, he answered for the Minister of Defense, he was removed,
              He did not give a command to destroy (bring down) a rust; no one requested it from him. So, that fuck your ass with yourselves by gravity or ask a neighbor, for more you, as I expected, are not capable, all scat under the bench.

      It was a setup. Gorby could not have removed it in another way. And those generals would not have given up, for example, the GDR with its GSVG - it was a "trick" for the marked one. Think so.

I press a button ... then the division commander makes a decision and the missiles go ... who needed it .... and such commanders at that time we had .... in the event of an attack, no one began to sort out where .... our missiles were aimed evenly throughout Europe ... everyone understood that it was a provocation. .. but there was simply not enough life experience that is so arrogant ...

    I ended up serving with him! One of those ministers who went through the war. And he knew what a weak army and defense was. When Gorbachev began to reduce the most combat-ready and high-tech services, he prevented this in every way. But he was a modest man, and he failed to do it after his dismissal, this process was no longer reversible. They disbanded and then completely eliminated my unit. They drove the interceptors to Tula and took out the missile regiments. This left the border with America open. Gorbi got his way. And Sokolov feels sorry for him. His blessed memory.

    There was a case ... several people were sent to death ... so that the rest would survive ... the burden of such decisions is, in my opinion, the worst thing in life ... it's easy to judge later ... sitting at home at the computer ... youth is generally cruel ... Gorbachev gave the order not to touch Rust ... well, and then the distribution of elephants ... rewarding the uninvolved ... punishing the innocent ... personally grateful to him ... gave one general a mug ... saved ... in essence what does he care about a simple soldier ... but figured out ... eternal memory to him ... he was a soldier ...

    Sergey Leonidovich, becoming the Minister of Defense, began to ask for the actual conduct of combat training. And rubbing his glasses was useless. A man himself has passed ALL steps, he knew all the ins and outs from the inside. It was enough for him to ask the commander a couple of three questions, to listen and check on the ground, and all the ostentatiousness surfaced. And where b / p was held there everything was type top. Arrived suddenly, like snow on his head.
    Some, we are not comrades, here a barrel is rolled over him for Rust. Well, at the hackneyed reception liberal, bring down from a sore head to a healthy one. Gorbi pushed through the Politburo’s decision - prohibiting the use of weapons on civilian aircraft to violators of the state border. Mr. Kryuchkov made sure that there weren’t any military vessels with comparable speeds at that moment, either at the border guards or at the Civil Air Fleet, they upgraded the forest airfield in Belarus and brought in fuel. Well, their curators from Langley, organized the flight itself. The goal was achieved — a justifiable reason for the purge in the ranks of the General Armed Forces of the USSR, starting with S.L. Sokolova. The change was already ready, led by Yazov. Which in advance, from the post of early. GUKa MO conducted through SaVoi KDVO in the chair of the MO. And this minister was little interested in combat training, technical re-equipment, Ogarkov’s reform rested in a Bose. So gentlemen, liberals, we don’t need to push tanks, those events and those people we do not know from Wiki ....

    One of the sons of Marshal Sokolov being a com. battalion in the ZabVO imposed discipline in the battalion with very original methods. He built the next invaders in one line and put out a magazine or two with combat overheads. It was very effective. For the "victims" of such "execution" the desire to go through this once again disappeared forever. Although some of them needed, not over their heads, but right between the eyes, so to speak, for reliability.
