Shoigu called the goal of reforms of the Russian Armed Forces

47
The main goal of the reforms of the Armed Forces of Russia is to transfer all units to constant alert, said Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu on Saturday. “This is a big job - preparing the Armed Forces to repel all sorts of threats. In essence, we must, in the end, understand where we are and what we can do,” he said in an interview with the program “News on Saturday with Sergey Brilev” on the TV channel "Russia 1", which was broadcast to the Far East.


Shoigu called the goal of reforms of the Russian Armed Forces


The minister stressed: "All this is being done under the leadership of the Supreme Commander. The main goal of this reform is to ensure that all units are constantly operational."

Shoigu also noted that Russia is renewing its presence in the Mediterranean and in the North, but does not leave the “far abroad” as well.

The head of the ministry said: "We returned to constant patrols in the Mediterranean, we returned to the North. It is very difficult to deal with these issues in the land of Franz Josef (New Siberian Islands)." "Of course, everything that is called far abroad is not ignored. The heat does not subside. I mean everything connected with the Persian Gulf ... North Africa, Central Asia, of course, we cannot stand aside," added he.

Shoigu also noted that the main enemy for Russia today is international terrorism. “Maybe this is a boring and banal phrase. But in reality, this is international terrorism, which exists in Syria, which is in Afghanistan today, in Mali, in Libya,” the military minister said.

Among the threats, the minister named the upcoming events in Afghanistan in connection with the withdrawal of the coalition forces and the expansion of NATO.

Shoigu said: "The second threat (for Russia - IF) is 2014 year, Afghanistan, the third is the approach of NATO to our borders, this is a continuation of NATO expansion, in our opinion, absolutely unreasonable. We all say this, but it all continues."

The head of the military department also said in an interview that the recruitment plan for contract service in the Ministry of Defense was fulfilled by 106%; in 2013, more than 60 thousand servicemen were recruited to serve in the troops.

The Minister stressed that the Russian army will not be completed only with contract soldiers. “In order to have an exceptionally professional army, we have a very large territory. Based on this, we must be able to mobilize, and in order to mobilize, we must have a mobilization resource. For this solution, there is a policy of creating four reserve armies,” he said.

The head of the department noted: “By 2020, we’ll get away from the combat use or use of the Armed Forces in the military actions of draftees. Today we know for sure how many contract servicemen there should be in the army.”

According to Shoigu, all conditions for life should be created for contract employees.

      It remains to determine some of the subtleties.
      1) Give a clear definition of previous endless reforms and the result obtained after their implementation. Name their cost.
      2) Name the heroes-reformers by their surnames, who received a positive effect during the reforms, the privileges and grants they received. And to name the "hero-reformers" who failed the reforms and their responsibility.
      3) Remind the electorate that all reforms carried out in the army were carried out under the leadership of the Supreme Commander.
      4) What are the deadlines for completing the next reform and for how many years after its implementation the country's armed forces will be left alone from the next reformers

      I don’t know how long you served and in what rank Serdyukov fired you, but I, the colonel with the 33 length of service and academic (still Soviet!) Education, do not like Shoigu yet.
      First, he is not a professional. A builder by education, the "wild-growing" son of a friend of EBN, who suddenly became a major general from a reserve starley (even during the war there were no such miracles). I just fell into the cage, like Serdyukov, Ivanov and others.
      Secondly, he does a lot of stupid things out of ignorance. The simplest example is the abolition of footcloths. Also - populism, frequent declarations of intent, not supported by calculations. An example of a "blooper" in this article - called the FFI a part of the New Siberian Islands! Have you looked at the map at least once?
      The main note on his "dreams" in this article: All parts of the aircraft cannot be parts of the GHG! This forehead organizer knows! Before you blurt out something in public, you need to ask the experts!

        You know, Shoigu identified three threats to Russia. I would add a fourth threat, in the person of our brigade commanders (24 Br Sp naz), the fighters did not shoot for more than six months, and did not throw grenades. And this is in terms of constant combat readiness. Why would the brigade commander have a headache, suddenly someone will be blown up, and everything is covered in chocolate. And in the rollback. And what for us such fathers commanders (commercial) ???? So, as always, the enemy is inside, and does not sleep,

    What are you saying. A worthy answer is that we will restore our military power, why do we need to ensure the safe and independent development of Russia. War is already on. In Sun Tzu, they are regarded as a whole, starting with diplomacy, mobilization, the economy, and ending with espionage and even religion. The goals of the war are to make the population prosper and be loyal to the ruler. Do we really need the Armed Forces to solve only regional, border and internal tasks? And the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the FSB? Do we need a strategy at all? What a pity that we are no longer children.

        In constant combat readiness there may also be cropped units. And even the storage base.

        "Units of constant combat readiness" is a term for somewhat different things. First of all, they must be deployed on a wartime state.

        But in any case, this is all true, mantras and nonsense. Shoigu himself knows. that this is impossible in modern conditions.

          That is, in order to implement the "main goal of this reform," Shoigu proposes to carry out a full mobilization? And will we be happy - the goal has been achieved? Everything is in constant readiness. The minister has the bonus of being a generalissimo.

            Serdyukov has already done this, we have practically only parts of constant combat readiness left. Is it correct? I do not know. Shoigu himself states that a call is needed because a mobilization reserve is needed in case of a major war. Only nowhere will the people mobilize to call.

            Well, as for the parts of the permanent BG, it remains to resolve the issue of completing. Already under Serdyukov, there was talk about the need to create consolidated units in the brigades in case of local wars. This is due to the fact that the service life is one year, and the first half of the year is impossible for the war, and this is absolutely the correct norm. So the "parts of the constant BG" have to get out like that.

        Most likely, he means that our units are currently not completely on alert, either not fully equipped, or it may even be that there are serious vulnerabilities in the country's defense, and they simply must be, and God forbid, so that they are not used by enemies until they are corrected.

        You are absolutely right. Combat readiness "constant" - the lowest degree of combat readiness in the troops. That is why it is called so - "constant". And the question arises - to what extent are the troops now, if the goal of the reforms is to bring them to this, the lowest degree?
        So I would say that all units are being transferred to state "A", full complement, the readiness of which for combat use is 24 hours from the moment of introduction of any highest degree of combat readiness.
        Civil - he is civil.

          I can not resist the educational program.
          The condition of troops (forces) is determined by the degrees of BATTLE READY. They are written in all capital letters in all combat documents: BG CONSTANT; BG ENHANCED; BG MILITARY DANGER; BG FULL.
          Constant readiness units are the "backbone" of the Armed Forces. There are a number of criteria by which the parts belong to this category: staffing with l / s and equipment according to SHVV; the range of tasks facing the unit; the time required to transfer to the highest degree of BG (sequentially or bypassing intermediate ones); % of combat vehicles (Kbg); % of crews trained for operations in the SMU and at night (in relation to aviation), etc. At the same time, the units of constant readiness can be at any degree of BATTLE readiness, including in the CONSTANT BG. Got it?
          Further. Parts that are not parts of the GHG include those that do not meet the criteria (see above), as well as parts of the reserve, support, combat training, training centers, etc.

            About twenty years ago, at the courses of the General Staff of the Russian Federation. Each degree of BG has a definition that accurately characterizes this degree, remember? Differences in staffing and training affect the time to transfer units to higher levels of BG. About ten years ago, 24-hour readiness units appeared, which everyone, for some reason, calls constant readiness units. And the rest then what readiness, excuse me? That's right - constant! No other definitions have been invented in mobilization preparation, all these "innovations" are the fruit of the "labor" of half-educated and upstarts who do not know the basics of mobilization and introduce confusion and discrepancy.

              Here I agree only partly. The uninitiated people see discrepancies. Although, to be honest, I also did not quite understand the introduction of this concept - "part of the PG". This was done most likely "out of poverty" of the Armed Forces and the desire to preserve at least something, concentrating the remnants of combat-ready units and units, as well as equipment, in some "elite" units, calling them parts of the PG. This made it easier to maintain control and establish all types of security, as well as get the necessary funding. This is from the words of my fellow "organizers"

And no matter how diplomatically Shoigu speaks about external threats, the ears of our "partners" are sticking out everywhere! It is gratifying that the understanding has come that Russia has no allies except its own Armed Forces, and all the rest are either "partners" or something else but far away Not friends!

    "we have to finally understand where we are and what we are capable of." Where we are has long been clear. What August 2008 has shown you are capable of. Here you will find the state of the command and control system and the interaction between the branches of the armed forces and the speed of reaction to a real threat. Therefore, there is no need for reforms, it is necessary to restore the combat capability and combat readiness of the Armed Forces. Even at the word "reform" the hand reaches for the pistol.
    It would be nice to explain who "international terrorism" is. And it would be nice to remember the advice of I. Kant: To make a reasonable choice, you must first of all know what you can do without.

    It remains to decide what a conscription service is - an "honorable duty", during the performance of which you remain a citizen, or an honorable duty, a slave who protects the capital of the oligarchs.

    In the first case, convenient uniforms, good nutrition, lack of hazing, military training, and not lawn painting. etc., with their rights and obligations in accordance with the charter.

    In the second, for a certain time, you become a powerless laborer.

    Apparently, small steps towards the first option have been taken.

    if they don’t take us there, then NATO is not the third threat, but NUMBER 3
