Chronicles of contraction


The first military universities went under the knife in 1992 - these were the Leningrad Higher Military-Political Air Defense School and the Khabarovsk Higher Military Construction Command School. If on the basis of the second they created the border institute of the FSB, which is still alive, then the command school of air defense radio electronics from Vilnius was transferred to the place of the first, which was subsequently safely closed in 2010.

By the end of the nineties, at least twenty-five military schools had been reduced or redesigned. At the same time, we must pay tribute, the "reformers" had convincing arguments in favor of reducing military education. First of all, officers in such numbers were not needed. The Soviet army had 5 million personnel, the officer corps for which was trained by 166 military universities. The managers considered that a five-fold reduction in the army would require a large-scale reform of military education, read, reduction or reprofiling.

Only here it is worth remembering that a considerable part of military schools with the collapse of the USSR had nothing to do with Russia at all. To put it simply, the country that broke up into separate states optimized itself in terms of military education. For example, only in Ukraine there are unique military academies of military air defense, military schools in Poltava and Kyiv.

The thrifty strategists from the Ministry of Defense were especially impressed by the two hundred graduates of flight schools who were forced to retire from the army in the mid-90s in their first year of service. Allegedly due to the lack of staff positions. The strategists did not take into account the months-long delays in wages, the total shortage of fuel and the general atmosphere of the collapse of the army. Maybe that's why the young lieutenants quit?

The second reason why military education required serious reorganization was the high depreciation of fixed assets. The consequences of perestroika were revealed in all their glory. According to the MoD, by the early 2000s, educational equipment and other infrastructure had not been updated for twenty to thirty years. There could be no question of re-equipment - the financing of the army was not in vogue then, so it seemed very logical to everyone to simply dissolve the schools.

It is probably not entirely correct to draw parallels, but in 2022, after seven months of a special operation in Ukraine, the Ministry of Defense was forced to mobilize officers up to colonels. Should this be seen as an echo of the “optimization” of military schools in the XNUMXs and XNUMXs? The question, of course, is rhetorical and debatable at the same time.

Another reason for the reduction in the number of military schools was the imperfection of legislation and the decline in the prestige of the profession. It so happened that four years of military school were equated to two years of military service. For a certain part of those liable for military service, this was quite a convenient prospect - whatever one may say, it is much more comfortable to be a temporary cadet than a soldier or sergeant. After four years of service, military schools lost up to 40 percent of students - this, in particular, happened at the Orenburg anti-aircraft missile command school.

The reasons for the closure of most military schools were also recorded as low academic performance and physical training of cadets, weak teaching staff and other nit-picking, primarily related to the unwillingness to finance the military industry.

As a result, we see the following picture. If until 1991 the Ministry of Defense annually graduated up to 60 thousand officers from 166 military universities, by 2007 the number of educational institutions had decreased to 68, and by 2012 to 45.

academies are not needed


Evaluate the verbiage of the military ministry of that time, explaining the need to close part of the military schools:

"an economically unjustified and excessively costly mechanism for the implementation of a non-optimal structure of educational programs for the training of officers by a non-optimal network of military universities."

Under the reduction were not only schools, but also military academies. Among others, they lost their independence and dissolved in the VUNTS "Combined Arms Academy", the Military Engineering Academy and the Military Academy of the RKhBZ. Under the wing of the same educational institution in 1998, the unique Red Banner Academy of Armored Forces named after Marshal of the Soviet Union R. Ya. Malinovsky was attached. The Academy existed since 1932 and died quietly at the turn of the century.

The worldwide craze of underestimation tanks on the battlefield was one of the reasons for stopping the famous academy. It is worth pointing out separately that each school, and even more so the academy, is also a research institute that conducts serious applied and fundamental work in the military field. With the reorganization, educational institutions lost both the unique testing base and the teaching staff. Whom to retire, and who to the street.

According to the most conservative estimates, it will take at least 10 years to restore the training system for tank officers at the previous academic level. The same amount of time is needed to restore scientific schools and nurture the teaching staff.

Probably, I will write a seditious thought, but if the armored academy had not been dissolved in the Combined Arms Academy, the tanks in Ukraine would not have been covered from Javelins with bars on the towers.

The situation is similar with the military medical institutes disbanded in 2010 in Tomsk, Saratov and Samara. The rule is simple - the fewer specialists lobby for the promotion of a particular solution (for example, a modern first-aid kit for a soldier), the less likely it is to appear at the front.


Instead of several specialized academies of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, now there is one - the Military Educational and Scientific Center of the Ground Forces "Combined Arms Orders of Lenin and the October Revolution, Red Banner, Order of Suvorov Academy of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation." Source: wikipedia.ru

If the armored academy could not be defended or restored, then the Military Academy of Aerospace Defense. G.K. Zhukov was more fortunate. Mr. Serdyukov signed the verdict in 2012 to this educational institution, which trained air defense officers of the operational level. The one-of-a-kind academy was to join the Air Force Academy. Mozhaisky, that is, to dissolve almost without a trace. It was possible to bring the university back to life only after the resignation of Serdyukov by a special order from Shoigu in 2013.

One of the innovations in the system of military education was the transition from two-year training for officers of operational-tactical specialties to ten-month courses.

This is most likely appropriate in wartime, but not for the 2000s. Technique and martial art takes more time to master. As if not realizing this, in 1996 most military academies reduced the term of study from three years to two. There were also absolutely amazing incidents, if not stronger.

So, in 2010, all military universities in Russia did not produce a set of chimes. Why? According to the Deputy Head of the Personnel Department of the Ministry of Defense Fraltsova, this is due to "an overabundance of officer personnel and a shortage of relevant positions in the armed forces." And now calculate how critically this affected the turnover of senior command personnel after only ten to twelve years.

Another one came in 2018 news - The Ministry of Defense decided to accelerate the release of combined arms commanders. Now you can become an infantry lieutenant in four years.

Summing up, we can say that not all the liquidations of military universities should be remembered with regret. For example, the aforementioned Leningrad Higher Military-Political School of Air Defense had to retire in connection with the destruction of the very institution of the CPSU. But the total liquidation of military construction schools, of course, is a mistake. Spetsstroy did not need specialists? Especially now, when it is urgently necessary to restore the destroyed economy of four new regions of Russia. The state has lost at least four specialized schools.

There are two tank schools on the list of reduced schools - in Chelyabinsk and Blagoveshchensk. It turned out that in future network-centric wars, which the General Staff so zealously promoted, artillery would not be so significant. Please destroy artillery schools in Tula, Kazan, St. Petersburg, Kolomna and Yekaterinburg. About how important artillery and especially the training of military personnel, the special operation showed in all its glory.

Got it and the military aviation. Analysts of the Ministry of Defense considered that military aviation schools of various profiles in Kurgan, Stavropol, Barnaul, Yeisk, Volgograd, Orenburg, Tambov, Ufa, Irkutsk, Tambov, Achinsk, Kirov, Kaliningrad, Krasnodar, Lebyazhye and Perm would be superfluous. I hope that at least reservists can be placed in the buildings of these schools.

By the way, about partial mobilization.

You will laugh, but in 2011 in Saratov the Military Institute for Advanced Training of Specialists of the Mobilization Bodies was abolished as unnecessary. They created it for a reason immediately after the Great Patriotic War, as they perfectly understood the complexity and importance of the operational mobilization of the reserve. The Institute trained officers in ten specialties in five departments. It turned out not to be needed.

      Reckless politics

      I have long matured confidence that politics is by no means reckless. Vice versa! Purposeful.
      The fact is that a whole complex of state and social systems was inherited from the USSR. - Education, medicine, science .. etc. I will not list.
      Among them and army how wise.. complex and viable system. And politics (from the very top), set itself to - destroy to zero , any Soviet system of the life of the country (be it the forestry system .. or the pension system .. etc.). So that nothing reminds of the USSR. And the better any Soviet system worked, the sooner it needed to be destroyed. Replacing any .. arbitrarily ugly neoplasm.
      And the "Serdyukov reform" was carried out with the aim of destroying the Soviet army. The fact is that the people instinctively resisted all these "reforms" over the past 32 years.
      So .. politics is not crazy at all! Vice versa! Thoughtful and purposeful. How much money was spent on one propaganda! .. To convince the people that "it will be better" .. And even a leapfrog of new names .. is not accidental.
      ----------------------
      Briefly speaking. Now it is as it is. sad And even criminally ordered .. to shout Hurrah! and admire this .. neoplasm, which is called the 2nd army of the world. And everything rests .. on the enthusiasm and patience and dedication of soldiers and officers (not all)

        So, everything goes according to plan, and a very cunning plan. The Soviet Union fell, but the great Soviet legacy remained, first of all, the fundamental one - health care, education, the army. The fact that the West does not need a strong Russia should already be a historical axiom, moreover, even with the tsar, even with the communists, even with corrupt liberals. Thanks to the USSR, socialism, the world was truly multipolar, socialism gave independence from the world influence of big capital, from such ghouls as the Rothschilds, Rockefellers and similar "masters of the world." With the advent of transnational monopolies, even competition, as an advertising good of capitalism, began to turn into a fiction.

        We are in capitalism, which our renegades from the CPSU picked up from the dustbin of history. The leader and master of capitalism, who defeated the Anglo-Saxons, whom Russia, with residual potential from the USSR, is a headache. Until now, thanks to the Soviet margin of safety, Russia is the only country in the world that can guarantee the destruction of the United States. A country in which only "galoshes were made" left a powerful science, a nuclear missile shield, and space achievements. It had to be destroyed. If the drunkard Yeltsin behaved like an "elephant in a china shop", disgracing himself personally, the country, and, most importantly, discrediting capitalism itself, then another leader was needed. The issue was resolved, with the appointment of a successor. Has Russia risen "from its knees" after this? Question... With one hand they seem to be creating, with the other they are destroying, half-measures, belated decisions that have not yet been implemented, but, under fireworks and holidays. Such a funeral with dances and rainbow promises.

        We must understand that it is not our corrupt and dependent oligarchs, with their selfish interests, who are the enemies of the West, but, namely, the residual Soviet potential, primarily nuclear missile. To this, the destruction of the army, science, education, including the military. Our oligarchs have not been with Russia for a long time, everything is with the West, they only milk Russia, rob. But, to surrender immediately to the owners and our nuclear weapons interfere, to surrender the country at the same time - they will not understand, there will be a riot, they will be raised on bayonets and pitchforks. Therefore, a cunning plan, when Russia is drained of blood, and in the name of peace, humanism and tolerance, it will be necessary to accept a humiliating ultimatum, under which we will be completely disarmed.

        Many remember "who is to blame and what to do" ... Blame the bourgeoisie and world capitalism, which has a new crisis. What to do, to revive the planned economy and people's power, to create a pole of power on the planet that is truly independent of capitalism. Abandon the cult of money and the selfish morality of consumers. Otherwise, nothing good will come to us.

          Yeah, it happened once, because several favorable factors came together at the same time: the global struggle of the capitalists, the complete decomposition of their own power and elites, bringing their own people to the limit of patience. Who will allow it now?

          It's one thing if this colonel himself was a regimental commander and chief of staff of a regiment, it's another if he is a signalman or a rocket man ... For me, it's better to promote a combat battalion commander in the rank to a regimental commander, about commanders to a battalion commander, than to rely on reservists.

            Alexander, now the situation is very similar. It was not Yeltsin who appointed "furniture maker" Serdyukov to ruin the army, the journalist Rogozin was also appointed to the space industry. Our Central Bank is actually headed by an agent of foreign influence from the IMF, the Central Bank was least of all concerned about the development of the Russian economy, hundreds of billions flowed over the hill. Our National Guard actually outdid the ground forces in terms of numbers. You can list for a long time what came into our reality after 1999. The prospect of a pension reform was denied, the Banderaites were threatened "let them just try" or the Turks "they won't get off with tomatoes," but... It's getting more and more difficult to maintain an image and pull up a rating by puffing out empty cheeks.

            They blew up gas pipelines, blew up the Crimean bridge, they have been shelling Russian territory for a long time, and, what... Who did not allow Donbass to be recognized immediately, in 2014, who prevented supporting the "Russian Spring"? After all, powers were requested, troops were drawn to the border, we had a legitimate Yanukovych and Prime Minister Azarov! ... Alas, everything was blown away, they played the hysterical video “Putin, bring in the troops!” on TV, explaining to the people that this cannot be done, there will be a war with NATO. There was no need to bring in troops, at least they did not recognize the farce with the "elections" in Kyiv, allowing the junta to legalize.

            For so many years, the DPR and LPR have been called "self-proclaimed republics", so let them try it for you. They tried, they killed Russians, they prepared for 8 years. What did we prepare for the SVO in 8 years, or was it an impromptu, some kind of military show, at the level of "tank biathlon"? Who didn’t let them fight normally here, why didn’t they immediately suppress all significant targets with a preventive strike, smearing single strikes on “sheds”, with piece-by-piece production of high-precision missiles?

            The problem would not have been that Nazi Ukraine was ready to seize the Donbass and enter the Crimea, we would have been chewing snot for another 8 years.
            The selfish interests of our capitalists did not really give a fight. Bridges across the Dnieper, infrastructure in western Ukraine, these are their interests, their business. Paradoxically, the country in which they are going to do "demilitarization" and "denazification" continues to pay money for the transit of gas and ammonia. The Yankees would not have blown up the gas pipelines, if the West had given permission, they would have continued to pump gas to the enemies at full speed. That way, Hitler would have continued to be supplied with resources, just pay. They, our moneybags, together with the West, are the true puppeteers of Russia.

            But, "the greed of the fraer ruined", the NWO can become not only a semblance of the shame of the Russian-Japanese war, but also the situation of 1917. Now the question is no longer a rating for the authorities, but the very existence of Russia. It is no longer possible to fool the people further, especially since a new "man with a gun" appears who will see and understand a lot at the front.

              You wrote correctly, but so far there are no those terms. World capital now has strength and is more or less in solidarity, and the peoples in all countries are being oppressed on all fronts, and the peoples are divided, the vast majority of wage workers do not have a sense of belonging to the proletarian class, petty-bourgeois values ​​are still very strong, and the authorities are at least unpopular, but they still firmly hold power in their hands, as always relying on law enforcement agencies, and most importantly, there is no alternative socialist force that could lead.

                European prosperity was based on cheap energy from Russia. These are the words of the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, who was forced to acknowledge the obvious consequences of anti-Russian sanctions. The problems that the Old World has created for itself are growing like a snowball. So in Germany, more and more companies are at risk of ruin, the number of bankrupt enterprises in September increased by a third compared to last year. And it will get even worse. This conclusion was reached by specialists from the Leibniz Institute for Economic Research. European media are discussing how rapidly firewood prices have risen, in France almost doubled, in Romania they had to limit their cost for six months, and Hungary completely banned the export of pallets. And now in the EU countries they are talking about the United States trying to establish economic dominance by weakening Europe. The Minister of Economy of France drew attention to this. He said: Washington sells its liquefied natural gas to Europeans several times more expensive than to its own, American industrialists.

                Well, if Zhopez himself admitted through his teeth that the well-being of Europe "turns out" was based on the supply of energy carriers from Russia, then there is only one conclusion: you cannot speak with us from a position of strength. And let the limitrophes draw conclusions and bark less. They will be better off.

Politics is nothing compared to economics. The United States began to lose its former power, and we are contemplating a new global crisis, wars and other charms of the "American-style democratic world." Once again, the only beneficiaries of this entire apocalypse will be the capitalists on the hill, the TNCs will be the beneficiaries. And the fact that Europe is turning into a semi-periphery does not bother anyone except the peoples of Europe themselves ...

              Very competently and essentially "Per se"! I disagree with one thing - the people can continue to be "fooled" because this people has been "brainwashed" by the ideology of capitalism for more than 30 years. At present, this is not the masses of the people, but a certain "volume" of disabled Unified State Examinations and "indifferent" - egoists driven by the "realities" of modern Russian oligarchic capitalism into an egoistic "cocoon" with rare "blotches" of those who remember the USSR, who are proud of it who are "well" with a head and an analysis of what is happening, but their age is already well over 60 and there are fewer and fewer of them .... And the current "Komsomol volunteers" are a rare exception in our ideologically empty life, like a certain "genetic surprise", "gift" in our "greenish" (dollar color) life, but rather existence, under the "crackle" of festive fireworks, victorious fanfares and reports, tear-squeezing patriotic rallies and hysterical cries, from the stands, about the "Russian world" and the "divine" destiny of Russia ....

        The army in this context has suffered the most and the reason for this is Putin's pathological fear of strengthening the image, recognition and fame of military leaders of any rank. He understood that only the military could change state power, so the strategy of destruction and the principle of divide and conquer were consistently pursued.

          Three - four large banks should become state-owned, including: the Central Bank and Sberbank. The progressive tax on "oligarchs" should be increased from 15% to 50%. By the way, in France it is 70%, which is why Depardieu also fled.

        Sorry, everyone is pouring faeces on Mr. (God forgive me) Serdyukov, but they forget who appointed him to this post with the appropriate powers and program. Remind? Boris Yeltsin ruled for only 8 years. Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich, he has been ruling for 22 years already. (It is ridiculous to consider the tame Medvedev as president at that time).
        "The damned oligarchs, Yeltsin and Serdyukov ruined everything!"- shouts the inhabitant. And he forgets about the GDP, which is all in white on a horse.
        And A LOT of questions arise for him, the main of which is why this CBO became possible at all. What have you been doing for 8 years, that the mobilized Vanya is again correcting your political impotence?

          I have a question: in what state did Gorb and Borka hand over the country to Putin? It is always easier to destroy than to build. I'm not saying that Putin is the ideal ruler of Russia. He has enough mistakes, sometimes rude. But putting him on the board with Gorb and Borka is complete nonsense. There was no one worse than these rulers. Nikolashka and Shuisky are on the same level as them.

        An overabundance of officers”: how the higher military education of Russia was destroyed

        I have long matured confidence that politics is by no means reckless. Vice versa! Purposeful.
        The fact is that a whole complex of state and social systems was inherited from the USSR. - Education, medicine, science .. etc. I will not list.
        Among them is the army, as a wise .. complex and viable system. And politics (from the very top), set itself the goal of destroying to zero, any Soviet systems of the country's life


        EVERYTHING was destroyed! Practically!

    By the end of the nineties, at least twenty-five military schools had been reduced or redesigned.

They were in a hurry, obviously fearing that such an initiative could be interrupted by understanding people and those who still had connections at the top. Fortunately, the Far Eastern Higher Combined Arms School named after V.I. Marshal of the Soviet Union Rokossovsky K.K. (DVOKU). But the reformers-optimizers also had ideas on it.

            significant numerical superiority of the ukrovermacht and its intelligence support NATO - NWO is at least on an equal footing.

            It's not 1941 now. And juggling with l / s numbers is not worth it. Now another war. The enemy is not overwhelmed with the corpses of their soldiers, if someone does not understand (just as many on this resource do not understand this simple truth). Today they fight not by numbers, but by skill and modern weapons. That's what's prioritised.
            And if you look at the equipment of the armies, the picture is not only sad, it is depressing. The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation began the NWO under overwhelming and absolute Russia's superiority in artillery, tanks, armored vehicles, MLRS, OTRK. The entire arsenal of military means was involved - aviation (long-range, attack, fighter), the forces of the entire Black Sea Fleet and the fleet of the Caspian region, including surface and submarine ships. Hypersonic weapons were used, all these Daggers, etc. Not to mention Caliber and Iskander. Only the Strategic Missile Forces and nuclear weapons were not involved.
            And what is the output? After seven months, in fact? In fact, retreat on all fronts. This is how to understand - the APU is crushed by superiority in l / s? Once again - now is not the 41st year, you can’t throw the bodies of the enemy.
            Does the West give weapons? Gives. But in tiny percentages. And what, this insignificant percentage has already turned the tide of the war? But how did we want to fight with all NATO? Not with interest, but with all its power? How and with what were they going to build a bipolar world? When did they advise NATO to collect their belongings and get out to the old borders? Even if we cannot cope with Ukraine with all our might? But NATO has not really even started yet, so it has every right to say so.
            L / s, you understand, there is not enough ... Wangyu: neither the first wave of mobilization, nor the second will give anything. And a million mobilized will give nothing. It's not about the number of people. And in the minds, in modern weapons, in advanced military technologies, in the ability to wage a modern war. The main factor is motivation. It's our zero. During the Napoleonic invasion, everything was simple - the enemy attacked our land, we need to defend it. During the Nazi invasion, everything was simple - the enemy attacked our land.
            What about today? How to explain a mobiku, cut off from the office, from the machine, from the harvester, why should he die in a foreign country? Tell him about denazification?

              Yes, from modern weapons, judging by the press, we have a lot of exhibition weapons, which are actually few in the army. However, the position of the Ukrainian army at the beginning of the SVO was no better. But we obviously did not have enough infantry. There was also a lack of intelligence in the leadership of the NWO. What they hoped for is not clear. The political leadership has clearly lost. As a result, we got a long war with unclear prospects.

              I don't find. The powers that be are silent and show tactical nuclear patience, and the soldiers themselves must seek motivation. There is no connection with the top and the people. And that's the problem. Explain in normal language what will eventually happen next, talk to people. But no....

      You might think that higher military-political schools would solve the problem. Their graduates, just like under the USSR, would broadcast the general line of the party - we are going to liberate the fraternal Ukrainian people, groaning under the heel of a handful of Nazis and dreaming of reuniting with Russia.
      And this is if you do not remember that in the same 90s, it was precisely the political officers who were in the forefront of the process of pulling the army apart into national apartments. Former communist internationalists instantly changed their shoes in a jump.

    It's never funny anymore. True, there are courses, but there was no point in ruining such a UMTB and personnel. Only because of the real estate in the city center and the impact on the combat readiness of the Armed Forces.

      You are confusing. If they want to make the country a raw material appendage for the leading countries of Asia and the West, then they reduce costs for areas that are not needed for this.

          Of course I understood, we have capitalism with elements of feudalism. The current Yeltsin-Putin government threw us back in development at the end of the 19th century.
          All the leading countries of the world have highly developed capitalism, with elective power. A striking example is China, they repeated the US system with Asian specifics. And yes, they have an elected general secretary, only in the USA they choose from 2 different parties, and in China within the same party, but there is even more pluralism of opinions.
          Capitalism is the best system at the moment. How effectively the country works in it, is already in power. Either you develop high-tech production, or oil production, or both.

          P.S. It was under the USSR that we became a raw material appendage of the developed world. This was done by Brezhnev. All questions are not about the "system", but how it is managed.

            By 1980, the USSR had reached parity with the United States in nuclear weapons and (together with the Warsaw Pact) was head and shoulders above the then NATO in ground forces. This is also the merit of Brezhnev. This was recognized by the Americans. The collapse started later. The death of Brezhnev and the 80s is a time of mass death (and simply retirement and living out) of veterans of the Patriotic War and home front. This generational change is simply forgotten.

    How good everything was until the evil Serdyukov ruined everything!

    But there are a few questions:

    Was there a surplus of officers?
    Was there a situation when there were slightly more officers than soldiers?
    Was there a situation when officers, on whose education a lot of money was spent, left the army en masse in the first three years?
    It was wonderful when the officers did not learn to command and did not command anyone, because there were no personnel.
    Remind the author of the service tasks that were then set for officers with higher education?
    I recall:
    The officer is either on duty in the park, or on duty in the unit. Either getting ready for duty, or resting after it. And they pulled the grass in the park and made them responsible for everything: dig three holes - the responsible captain, garbage collection - the responsible officer, move the safe - here you can put the major in charge.

    The author does not want to talk about this?
    He doesn’t want to tell what a wonderful efficiency the officer had, who had not seen the personnel for years and was engaged in the fact that he went to outfits and guards and was engaged in all the economic affairs that were possible?

      Nope, before Serdyukov was not. Everything was just fine: the staffs of government bodies often did not change since Soviet times, which is why the army headquarters commanded a cropped division, and the brigade headquarters commanded a couple of ships. Plus, a huge network of military educational institutions, annually graduating thousands of lieutenants, who mysteriously dissolved before reaching the units.
      There were not even enough officers for this superstructure: headquarters, rear and the same military educational institutions were 100% staffed, and battalions and below cost 1 personnel for 9 jackets and wreed sergeants. But everyone was fine with it.
      Actually, an overabundance formed when the command and control structure under Makarov began to be brought into line with real subordinates, and not with plans arr. 1981. smile

    You will laugh but in 2011, in Saratov, the Military Institute for Advanced Training of Specialists of the Mobilization Bodies was abolished as unnecessary. They created it for a reason immediately after the Great Patriotic War, as they perfectly understood the complexity and importance of the operational mobilization of the reserve. The Institute trained officers in ten specialties in five departments. It turned out not to be needed.

    We laugh ... Especially, in terms of the announced "partial mobilization".

    By the way, from the very beginning of this emergence of a market economy, my comrades (military pensioners) and I sat and wondered how this would be reflected precisely in the period of a potential war or some other event.
    I consider it important to move military schools and institutes to the outskirts of cities (it is possible - to satellite cities), so that nothing distracts from study. And closer to the polygons.

    The deliberate and planned collapse of the military education system, which began after the destruction of the USSR, has another side - a commercial one. A large number of higher education institutions were located in the central regions of large cities. For Moscow and Leningrad, it was typical to be located in fundamental buildings, often of cultural and historical value. As an example, I can cite my school - VVMKU named after M.V. Frunze. In the 2018s, one of the residential buildings of the school was sold and rebuilt into elite housing. This is despite the fact that architecturally all the buildings represent a single complex of buildings. Under the slogan of the withdrawal of all St. Petersburg VVMUs to Kronstadt, the school forgot what elementary cosmetic repairs are. Unique molding, fungus on the walls, broken parquet are destroyed. And I won’t talk about a strange series of fires. And according to rumors, the major son of one great lady from power is "businesslike" with military St. Petersburg real estate. Actually, this is a broad topic. In XNUMX, with an appeal from graduates of various years, I was at a reception at the Administration. The result is clear...

        Money was also found for the overhaul of the Nakhimov School in St. Petersburg. Major sons need to study in a comfortable environment and at public expense. Plus supervision and obligatory sampo. And it is not a fact that after graduating from a military "kindergarten" someone will continue their studies at a higher educational institution in order to make a military career. But the oldest naval educational institution in Russia, which brought up a whole galaxy of Russian and Soviet admirals, does not even have the status of a legal entity.

    Colossal oversupply, enormous. "Every soldier dreams of becoming a general," right? And imagine that all the officers graduated from these universities will become at least colonels. A wonderful picture, huh?) The colonel washes the toilets, and the colonel also drags garbage to the trash ...
    The USSR produced officers at a monstrous pace set by the War. Based on the fact that some traitors were engaged in military education in her time. Otherwise, nothing can explain that a fresh lieutenant who came to the front line usually died in his first, second, third battle. Stayed alive well if one out of ten! That is, he studied on the battlefield what they did not want to teach him at the school.
    Experiencing a huge shortage of junior officers, the USSR during the War stamped them as undermined, but at the same time tried not to teach them what they needed. . And the trend continued in peacetime! Junior officers were still wildly lacking. Having joined the army, the lieutenant quickly became convinced that he had absolutely no prospects here without patronage, he would pull the strap until retirement without any future, and that’s all. But no one wants to fire him, he is urgently needed, and at this very place! Without a decent salary, without a home, without a future...
    As a rule, a circus began with drinking and flying in a day to be fired for fear of really big miracles. The army was cool, right?) You need to let your brains into the army. For the first time since time immemorial, use the mind. Rebuild command verticals so that there is enough space. But returning the Soviet "conveyor of lieutenants" is madness!

At the same time, the fleet is simply not comparable, in terms of the total number of combat aircraft, the US Armed Forces are 2,5 times superior to the Russian Armed Forces, there is no one to fight in our army. Out of 2 million armed forces, they squeezed out a maximum of 150 - 200 people (the rest are not from the structures of the Armed Forces) capable of fighting, less than 000%, what are the remaining 10% doing?

        It's just that the Yankees have a different structure. Much of what our lieutenant-captains do is entrusted over the hill to the sergeant corps and warrant officers - "subofficers". Accordingly, there is no need to place senior officers over all this fraternity, and generals and admirals over them.

        Yeshe at the school wrote an essay on the principles of staffing the US Armed Forces with officers. According to the results of the Vietnam War, the Americans accepted that the officers are "forged" in three training systems. The first is military educational institutions that train the elite. This is approximately 25-30% of the entire officer corps. Another third is trained in civilian universities. The student signs a contract with the Armed Forces, wears a uniform during his studies, and studies according to a special program. And, finally, 30-40% are officer schools for sergeants with sufficient service experience. This is a forge of junior officers, "vanek-platoons", who are not offended by being "eternal" captains. But on the other hand, they are the most experienced commanders of platoons, companies and other units of a similar level.

    If there is a scientifically based nomenclature of weapons and the calculation of a rational amount / proportion to a low-precision one, are scientific recommendations being followed or does it all happen separately, science in itself, ammunition procurement policy in itself, application practice and instructions for use in themselves?

      New universities and research institutes in the field of computer networks and computing, optics and electronics, robots, precision mechanics, chemistry and materials science, lasers and sensors, medicine, overalls and equipment, anti-tank protection were not created to replace and on the basis of the disbanded new universities and research institutes. If they had been made then, the developments of the past decades in the field of communications and optics, medicine, clothing and footwear, etc. would have already been introduced.

    I will apply an example from my own life to the liquidation of military universities. Having retired from the ranks of the army to the reserve a few years later, I discovered that my engineering and sapper training center in the city of Volzhsky had been liquidated. Whomever the big training did not prepare, engineers, sappers, divers, ensigns. Didn't need it? A huge country did not need engineers? Syria showed a shortage of qualified sappers. And now, don’t we need barriers, crossings and fortification with mining? That's okay, I soon discovered the liquidation of my 214th Proskurovskaya Red Banner Engineering and Sapper Separate Brigade, deployed in Kamensk-Shakhtinskoye (the border is not far, as you understand). My brigade in full strength provided engineer-sapper work in the first and second Chechen campaigns. Who did all this??? Did Serdyukov personally make such decisions???
    Recently, an engineering unit was restored on the basis of the brigade, although the new formation occupies barely 30% of the potential of the former military unit

      It’s really interesting how Serdyukov was able to reduce the number of universities of the islands, from 166 to 68 in 2007, if he only became the Minister of Defense in 2007?
      Who reduced them in such numbers from 91 to 2007? For some reason, there is silence about this ...

        Well, it’s inconvenient to write that before Serdyukov, higher educational institutions were reduced by graduates of the same higher educational institutions who held senior positions in the Moscow Region.
        It is just as inconvenient to write that the current campaign was planned by graduates of the great and powerful pre-Serdyukov system of military education. wink

    Mattress makers generally have three military universities and three academies (colleges) and can do nothing. Maybe it's not the quantity, but the quality?

    They have a different training system. Three academies: West Point, Colorado Springs, and Annapolis train the elite, respectively, for the Army, Air Force, and Navy. It requires a recommendation from at least 2 congressmen or a senator for admission, so black guys from the outskirts of Detroit do not study there. The bulk of officers are trained according to a multi-stage system from private to lieutenant with a high dropout rate at each stage. They will never even become colonels. At the same time, no one forces them to study strength of science, quantum physics and higher mathematics, only specialized subjects, a lot of practice, a large number of simulators, hence the high level of professional training.

    The article is topical. It has not been said yet about the aviation academies - them. Zhukovsky and them. Gagarin. They were united and thrust into Voronezh. Now this academy is called the academy of "Zhugarin" or "Gakovsky". Unique wind tunnels and equipment were destroyed - and not the Academy. Zhukovsky to be located in such a good place in Moscow, where the land is expensive. A small part of the equipment was saved, but it's minuscule. And in place of the Orenburg anti-aircraft guns, there is now a "presidential cadet school." They are probably preparing presidents there now.

    By 2007, the number of educational institutions was reduced to 68, and by 2012 - to 45.


    Ask the Supreme Commander-in-Chief about the reasons for these reductions; all "circumcisions" of the army and officers after 2000 were carried out under his "wise" leadership.
    Serdyukov also carried out his "reforms" under the direct supervision of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and the then President
    and the current deputy of the Security Council Medvedev D.A.

    Why look for the guilty if they are still at the helm of power in Russia and its law enforcement agencies ....

      And I saw it when I graduated in 2002.
      and a wild shortage of commanders in platoons and companies and jackets, which could not be put on guard or allowed to enter the personnel. (at the same time, at colonel positions and above, the set was fully staffed)
      Only now, before the arrival of the evil Serdyukov, who ruined everything, there were still 5 whole years.
      He became a minister in 2007.
      Question:

      If by 2007 the number of educational institutions decreased from 166 to 68,
      who cut them down? Serdyukov was not there before 2007. But those who now blame everything on Serdyukov just led both the Moscow Region and this reduction

      You speak ironically "jackets" .... "in the case of a motivated order ..., under contracts at the military departments of universities", but most of the career lieutenants (due to imperfect contracts) fled en masse from the Armed Forces. Moreover, the statistics are familiar from 1998-2000. Plus, at his former job, the officer quit 3 months later in 2008 after graduating from college and the events in G. The notorious "jackets" as forced labor pulled out the entire burden of responsibility of platoon-company commanders from 1991 to 2010. And in the war in Ch. they made up 100% of the com. platoons, 30-45% com. company (and they came to replace the war in the deep majority). In terms of the level of training, there is no need to generalize ...., most gained the necessary experience in 3 months. The very units of constant readiness Tamanskaya and Kantemirovskaya, ironically called courtiers (level 2 of day and night firing for one week with guards and 3rd day and night firing in another (early rise of personnel at 5 am and return to the barracks for rest 2 -3 o'clock in the new day, at 9 am after breakfast, heads on their hands at the tables of the Lenin room - they are sleeping, the authorities tried not to go to those barracks where there were shootings, 1998)). I have the honor.

        I have the right to speak ironically about jackets, because I myself am one. And do not tell me about the necessary experience. Here, almost everyone agrees that a soldier of a modern army during his conscription service only becomes fully prepared by the end of it, but here a civilian specialist who was taught at the department once a week will become a full-fledged replacement for a regular officer? Not to mention the fact that after 2 years he left and a new graduate of the university came in his place. And it's not just about technical knowledge - in this respect, if the head is on your shoulders, everything will be in order. They don’t teach you to command people in the department, and no one will teach you this either. (we did not teach). It turned out, well, no, ayayay, it’s a jacket, what else can you expect from him ... And I saw those who didn’t succeed at all ...

          I had two years left, at the construction site, a line foreman, 80 male masons, carpenters, slingers and 60 female finishers. Let's put it this way - it's much worse than 80-100 conscripts.))) And in the service .... higher-ranking personnel in the majority ... went to us. It so happened that I had to command a company alone without other officers, and when two personnel officers came and “disappeared”, and they asked me for combat training (they didn’t go, they left the service in 1999), sent a battalion commander (lick it, lick it further, but that's a different story). So, I know for sure who went to war, the statistics are from there. And the notorious hazing happens, in the absence and supervision of the subordinates of the commander, or when the officer gives to the old-timers. The officers at our department (Afghan, Angola) understood perfectly well that experience with the staff was not enough. But their words: If you lead in civilian life, there will be no problems with personnel. Three or four times for live firing and you will get involved. My company commander (personnel) and political officer (jacket) quit 3 months after my arrival. They tried to give me a jacket from my university (my graduation) ran away from a motorized rifle company two weeks later to the tankers ... I agree, it depends on the person ...

            You are lucky that in civilian life you gained experience in managing people. And imagine in your place yesterday's student, all of whose knowledge, both civil and military, is of a technical nature. And he is instructed to command people who do not really want to obey, and at the same time they know that in the liberal army, according to the law, in order to do something to him, you need to almost start a criminal case? And what about the fact that they went to us - was it like that, but not all the personnel treated this way? You might think that there are no such personalities in civilian life? And in the regiment, I remember excellent officers and decent people, and at the enterprise there are those who ride on the hump of those who are more responsible or simply the last in the production chain.
            Yes, about replacing a regular officer - I mean that the jacket gained the necessary experience during the service itself, and having gained it, left, and so on in a circle. I do not think that this contributed to the high level of readiness of our army.

You need to hear and know about all the problems in the barracks in relationships, in the family of a subordinate and, if necessary, arrange pre-schedule leave (anything happens official or not official) and physical. impact within the framework of working out in the stalls (manual preparation, anything can happen ..., officially all papers ... for class), as an extreme ....

                By 2008, the "system" ate many military officers in my unit as uncomfortable experiences and actions (there were also attempts at criminal cases and much more). We tried to collect the minimum qualification and leave, many left without it. Many died, heart attacks. Let's just say that for 3 years an unofficial acted. alarm network. Once a year, officers and soldiers gathered on Memorial Day for communication, then social networks and everything else appeared.

    Reckless politics

    I have long matured confidence that politics is by no means reckless. Vice versa! Purposeful.
    The fact is that a whole complex of state and social systems was inherited from the USSR. - Education, medicine, science .. etc. I will not list.
    Among them and army how wise.. complex and viable system. And politics (from the very top), set itself to - destroy to zero , any Soviet system of the life of the country (be it the forestry system .. or the pension system .. etc.). So that nothing reminds of the USSR. And the better any Soviet system worked, the sooner it needed to be destroyed. Replacing any .. arbitrarily ugly neoplasm.
    And the "Serdyukov reform" was carried out with the aim of destroying the Soviet army. The fact is that the people instinctively resisted all these "reforms" over the past 32 years.
    So .. politics is not crazy at all! Vice versa! Thoughtful and purposeful. How much money was spent on one propaganda! .. To convince the people that "it will be better" .. And even a leapfrog of new names .. is not accidental.
    ----------------------
    Briefly speaking. Now it is as it is. sad And even criminally ordered .. to shout Hurrah! and admire this .. neoplasm, which is called the 2nd army of the world. And everything rests .. on the enthusiasm and patience and dedication of soldiers and officers (not all)

    The traitors placed the Anglo-Saxons in the leadership, otherwise it is difficult to explain why this is happening. As far as I know, in the early 90s, Sobchak brought a group with him from America. They probably still suck!

    My alma mater (which was mentioned in the article) was also destroyed, although air defense specialists were trained in very limited numbers, at all times in the troops, with the exception of groups of troops, and even then not without problems, I don’t remember that the zrbatry were 100% staffed, they "got out" at the expense of two-year-olds and over-conscripts, "hanging" on the officers an additional burden and duties "for that guy." And this is not a universal specialty, it is very narrowly specialized, requiring a broad outlook and a high level of practical knowledge of all kinds and types of medical professionals, not to mention the research work of the educational institution itself. These reforms, in my opinion, border on state crime and sabotage, which is the most offensive, and remained unpunished and not convicted.

    Assessing the situation of "personnel shortage" today, we can conclude that the absence of junior officers lays the foundation for the uncertainty of the future of all the armed forces in the Russian Federation. After all, they not only need to be trained in their specialty for 5 years, but they must also be in demand in the state, since this is a personnel reserve. And if the head of state does not fix this, then "big" changes await all of us, not for the better. The times of "liberalism" are over, the time has come for "military democracy" ..... soldier

    If you are not aware, most of the current elite either come from the USSR or their children. These are not some kind of Martians, these are our compatriots, no matter how the opposite may seem. They, just like most Russians, profess legal nihilism and do not suffer from remorse.

    Under Serdyukov, there was no enrollment in military universities for several years (I don’t know about all of them, but for sure at the Smolensk Academy of Air Defense Forces). And not only did he not sit down, he also occupies a leading position in the defense industry.
