The media reported on the appointment of General Kuzmenko, Acting Commander of the Vostok Group of Forces, during the vacation of General Muradov

War correspondents and a number of media circulated news on the appointment of Lieutenant-General Andrey Kuzmenko as acting commander of the Vostok grouping of troops. Official sources of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation have not yet confirmed this information.

Until recently, the Vostok grouping of troops has been commanded by Colonel-General Rustam Muradov. This group operates in the South-Donetsk and Zaporozhye directions. General Muradov remains in the post of commander of the Eastern Military District. Interestingly, before this, the media reported that General Muradov had gone on vacation. This is a fairly common practice of personnel reshuffling in such high positions in the Russian armed forces.



As the newspaper writes,Russian spring”, probably now the issue of the further activities of General Muradov can be agreed with Russian President Vladimir Putin. During his vacation, General Kuzmenko was appointed acting commander.

Lieutenant General Andrey Kuzmenko was the commander of the 2015th Combined Arms Army from 2019 to 6, then taught at the Academy of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces.

It is known that the general was born in 1972, graduated from the Omsk Higher Combined Arms Command School, the Combined Arms Academy of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and the Academy of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces. He went through all the stages of an officer's career - from the commander of a reconnaissance platoon to the commander of a brigade, deputy commander and commander of a combined arms army.

Whether the general will remain in office after Muradov returns from vacation is also not reported.

      146% in the West, the media will swallow this bait, as with the T54 and T62 tanks. (By the way, the American went further, threw photos from the T34 donated to us by Laos on railway platforms into the network). For three days they have a topic, the generals "vote with their feet" against NMD, they like to throw it away and suck it up .. Units in the USA are doing the right analysis, both we and NATO have encountered modern military operations of this level for the first time. The actions of the Air Force in the rear are completely unaligned by air defense. We dismiss the use of TNAS, as in the USSR.

          Well, if you look at the history of the Great Patriotic War, it was just like that. On the eve of the offensive, the commander almost always changed. True, they said about the former, he did not go on vacation, but left at the disposal of the headquarters. And this is not at all because he did not cope, often it was the descending one who prepared the entire offensive. It probably has some deeper meaning.

          I guess he didn't want to go on vacation. Probably the understanding came that the general did not cope with the task. But it takes time to find a place where it will not cause damage to the army. So, while OK is looking for a place for him, he is on vacation, I hope without maintenance.
          The army is cleared of parquet. This is fine.

        This is the first time we and NATO have encountered modern combat operations of this level.

        We may be. NATO has such operations in its assets. This is Iraq in 91 and the 2000s, where quite comparable armies operated. Afghanistan is also not small in scale, of course, it cannot be compared in terms of counteraction.

        What's wrong here? The commander is not a man, not a soldier? The President set the task of every six months a two-week vacation from the NVO zone. You will probably be surprised, but Zhukov, Rokossovsky, etc. went on vacation during the Second World War, and even went to resorts with their families ...

            You know history very poorly, front commanders, representatives of the Headquarters, were on vacation at least once every three to four months. Vacations, of course, in 1941 were very short-term, no more than 3-5 days, but they were. And Muradov's sector of the front is not stabilized? Is the enemy rushing towards Moscow, destroying our second echelons?))))

      Podolyaka correctly said: why is there no such punishment as a demotion in rank now? As for me, I would have demoted him to a major and put him on trial by a military tribunal. And then as an ordinary attack aircraft in Wagner, let him show his dashing there. In the video and in the letter of 155 br, the guys said correctly about him, he has the blood of many soldiers on his hands. For stars and epaulettes, he drove people head-on without intelligence to storm the fortifications. I’m surprised how they haven’t put him there yet, the Marines are very angry at him. He should be judged...

          I agree in many respects, but there are moments beyond the control of the commander. Before the attack on Ugledar, for military reasons, it was necessary to bombard at least the nearest railway infrastructure of the enemy, destroy bridges in the rear and eliminate enemy firing and observation points in high-rise buildings. There is still no answer to the question why the enemy railway infrastructure and bridges are not destroyed?

        Even in the Soviet army, if you really wanted to get rid of a worthless officer, and he was not inclined to drunkenness and immorality (then everything could simply be organized), then the most popular way was to send either to study at the academy, and if he had already studied there - remained only on increase.

      Who is to blame under Ugledar, still needs to be sorted out. I do not defend Muradov, of course he failed. But the question is about the system that nominated him. According to reviews, he was a good officer, but this strategic level, where he was nominated, did not pull. Why didn’t they remove it right away? Is there no definite fault, or something else? In addition, it’s not a fact that it will be removed. They also talked a lot about Lapin, but he went on promotion.

      Rearranging the terms does not change the sum.
      This is not a war of generals. This is a political war. They give instructions where and how to fight. What types of weapons to use and what not. Which targets can be destroyed and which cannot, etc.
      In general, everyone says that we have a monstrous response time to ongoing events, because. each sneeze is coordinated with Moscow.
      They saw a helicopter - and they start sending messages on command - we see a helicopter, what should we do with it?
