    It’s time for the breakers to go on vacation. Yes, and Pankov would not hurt to leave

    Suddenly it turns out that this warrior is also involved in some kind of dark business, and in order not to lose his face, he resigns in advance. Of course, it is not good to think that all military thieves, but in view of the last passages of different people, such faith is melting before our eyes. Previously, the army in the minds of ordinary citizens was a symbol of protection, courage, valor and honor, and now it is a symbol of theft on the part of officers and a symbol of stupid cattle, poverty on the part of soldiers and sergeants (an intelligent, wealthy person will not go to serve in the army). Unfortunately, most today think so, especially about the soldiers.
    I don’t even know whether to plus the article or not: all of a sudden a person was still good and conscientious. If anyone knows what, write. I don’t want to look for it myself.

      Заместитель начальника Генштаба Василий Смирнов отвечал в Минобороны России за призыв военнослужащих. У Вас есть основания называть его "воякой"?

        У Вас весьма "скромные" познания в области определения "вояк". Хороший штабной работник, в данном случае - комплектовальщик, всегда ценился. И настоящих вояк среди них хватает. Тем более генерал прошел все должности до нач.штаба части не перепрыгивая, а это о многом говорит. Не судите военных по названиям должностей и месту службы, это не корректно.

          Фраза относилась к сказаному выше - "Вдруг еще выяснится, что и этот вояка замешан в каких-нибудь темных делишках". А познания мои не Вам судить. Еще раз повторю - "Оснований считать Смирнова "нерадивым" не вижу". См. ниже.

        The call is one of the areas of activity.
        ОМУ-"организация массовых увольнений военнослужащих". Под его чутким руководством шло сокращение ВС. Все директивы рождались именно в ГОМУ. В результате получили слабые бригады, авиабазы, разгром тыла, отсутствие моб. резерва и т.д. Писать можно много. Следующие на очереди Панков, Булгаков.

          Under his strict guidance was the reduction of the sun. All directives were born precisely in the GOMU.


          Do you really think that Smirnov could do this on his own initiative? Smirnov is the executor and the military man complied with the order. So blaming him does not make sense.

      Just like Gaidar (who is Arkady), at the age of 17 he already commanded a platoon. smile

    This, as I understand it, is the official version for us. And what remains behind the scenes, where did this comrade screw up? Or just retired? then let me know, otherwise with relish in all the media, they say he resigned. request

    Well, here is Serndyukov’s chance to return. It was the Investigative Committee that was humbling honest people, tearing high professionals from the management of the Armed Forces. As a result, the IC harmed the defense, but no responsibility for this, mind you, none of its negligent fool workers have not yet incurred.

    Оснований считать Смирнова "нерадивым" не вижу. Главное организационно-мобилизационное управление - это не финансы с недвижимостью. Разве что, как слуга "кровавого режима", пытался "умных, обеспеченных людей" загнать в "тупое солдатское " ( Sunjar). Поиск, правда недолгий, в интернете ничего негативного не дал.

      Just a Russian is inappropriate in the Jewish war - the latest initiative to remove the grace period for paid students should give 300 thousand conscription, and the requirement for commanders 70% transfer to the contract almost cuts off the dismissal + recruitment of civilian contractors - why such a sharp increase in the number?

    He probably knew the number of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, but with the URC he did not organize reconciliations by numbers at the reporting date. The Accounts Chamber revealed that at the beginning of January 2012, more military personnel received monetary allowance in the army than was actually counted. So ten billion and overpaid ...

    Начальник ГОМУ отвечает не только за призыв но и мобилизационную готовность ВС, а в каком она состоянии показали последние учения - Восточного военного округа и "Запад-2013"... мягко скажем "хреновом"...проще было сидеть на должности при табуреткине и смотреть, как разваливают ВС...ДОСИДЕЛСЯ...ТОЛЬКО ОПЯТЬ НИКТО НЕ ВИНОВАТ!!!

      By the way, he also signs directive pointers for OSHM ... wink

    GOMU is responsible not only for the replenishment of troops, but also all organizational events, mobilization readiness, as well as the receipt of military equipment in our armed forces, it is their concern. All these shies about transferring troops to the brigade base and back to the divisional basis, introducing priests, the police into the armed forces, outsourcing and other bad words, all this is on Vasya-Vasya’s conscience .... Why am I talking about him like that? Yes, because before him there was a practice of a DISSENTING OPINION to GOM. Which was listened to at the very top. EXPLANATORY NOTE was prepared for significant organizational events. In which, with all the necessary calculations, it was proved not so much the financial and economic feasibility of the ongoing organizational activities, but the expediency in terms of enhancing the combat readiness of our armed forces. Vasya-Vasya finally ruined GOMU. Look at the officers who are currently serving there. They have no experience of commanding even a battalion (division). What suggestions can they prepare? Yes, now this is not required. It all came down to the stupid execution of the idiotic proposals of our guides. Many of these proposals were considered at the GOMU dozens of years ago and were rejected as IMPOSSIBLE ....
    Vasya-Vasya did not bring any benefit to our aircraft (and did not try). But he provided his relatives with apartments at the expense of the Ministry of Defense. He will be remembered as an accomplice in the collapse of our Armed Forces.
