Military Review

Army: modernization continues

12
Yesterday, in the Situation Center of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Defense Minister General of the Army Sergey Shoigu held the next, 64-th in a row, and the final conference call this year. Among the 10 issues on the agenda, the head of the military department focused on the provision of military personnel with housing and staffing for the Armed Forces under contract and the implementation of the state defense order in the outgoing year.


The form of conference calls with the participation of not only the leadership of the Ministry of Defense, but also - with the help of videoconferencing - commanders of military districts, associations, and (if necessary) commanders of individual military units, military bases fully justified themselves. Over the past year, this communication system has been constantly improved, which allowed, without calling officials in Moscow, to discuss with them the most important issues of military construction and the daily life of the troops, to speed up the necessary decisions and bring them to the executors. As a result, General of the Army Sergei Shoigu noted, the results of activities in such problematic areas as the creation and improvement of the infrastructure intended for the quartering of troops (including the fulfillment of the construction schedule of service and permanent housing) and accommodation received during the implementation of HPV-2020 New weapons systems, military and special equipment. In addition, meetings with representatives of the defense industry have improved the performance indicators of the plans of the State Armaments Program.

This form of work, according to the Minister of Defense, has shown its effectiveness. It will be used in the 2014 year.

Before turning to the main issues of the agenda, the Minister of Defense reminded the meeting participants that last week, the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, held a series of meetings with the leadership of the Ministry of Defense, the commanders-in-chief of the armed forces of the Armed Forces, chief designers and heads of leading enterprises of the military-industrial complex, management of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation and a number of other members of the government. During these meetings, the most important issues of the construction of the Armed Forces, and above all the implementation of the State Arms Program before 2020 and the state defense order in the outgoing year, were considered. In addition, issues of the next LG were discussed, for the period up to 2025.

During the meetings, Vladimir Putin gave a number of instructions, including to the Ministry of Defense.

“This year we have to complete the permanent housing program for all military personnel who are registered as needing 1 until January 2012,” said the Minister of Defense.

He said that after a full inventory, the number of people in need from this category turned out to be somewhat larger than it was at the end of last year - 82 thousand people. At the beginning of December, 72, thousands of such troops were provided with housing. More 6 thousands have already been given the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the apartments allocated to them for a decision on their settlement. The state’s fulfillment of its housing obligations to the military allowed the Minister of Defense to express confidence that the provision of this category of waiting list with housing in 2013 will be fully completed.

At the end of the meeting, Sergey Pirogov, director of the Department of Housing of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, said that the line of homeless people who need to be provided with housing rose to 2012 thousand people in 25, and more than 2013 thousand soldiers in 11. So there is a lot of work to be done, and it continues in several directions. Among them - getting ready permanent and service housing, issuing GLS and providing housing with the help of the mortgage system.

Army: modernization continuesThis year it was planned to provide housing for 19 thousand 836 military personnel, 1 percent of them were provided for December 92, until the end of the year it remains to provide 1.646 people. Sergey Pirogov expressed confidence that this will be done in December. And it is planned to complete the provision of service housing for servicemen by 2018 year, the Minister of Defense said at the meeting.

As for the SHC, the director of the Department of Housing of the Ministry of Defense expressed a wish to the Ministry of Regional Development of the Russian Federation to allocate more money for this purpose. Nevertheless, thanks to the efforts of the leadership of the Ministry of Defense, they recently managed to get 1,2 billion rubles, or in fact 570 GLS, which will be distributed to servicemen before the end of the year.

The mortgage security system for servicemen is gaining momentum and popularity. To date, more than 125 ths. Military personnel have entered into it, with the monthly increase being 1.800 people.

“We plan that by the year 2024 this form of providing housing for servicemen will be the main one,” said Sergey Pirogov.

The Ministry of Defense plans to quit housing lines in 2014 - 2015 by introducing a lump sum cash payment. The relevant documents have been prepared and submitted to the State Duma for consideration by the deputies, on whom the introduction of changes and amendments to the law “On the Status of Military Personnel” now depends.

“This form will allow servicemen who have served 20 for more than 10 years and have a 4 person’s family to receive housing in all regions of the Russian Federation, including new buildings in Moscow, if the proposals submitted by the Ministry of Defense are accepted,” said Sergey Pirogov.

The creation of the necessary fund of service housing is also very important in connection with plans to increase the number of contract servicemen in the positions of privates (sailors) and sergeants (foremen).

Army General Sergei Shoigu once again noted that the policy of creating a professional army remains unchanged.

- We must recruit 2017 thousand contract servicemen by 425. On this day, for this hour, the recruitment plan for 2012 of the year was fulfilled by more than 112 percent, we scored over 70 thousand troops, under contract, he said and expressed the hope that by the end this number could be increased to 117-120 percent.

According to estimates made by the Ministry of Defense, our Armed Forces need 499 thousand contract servicemen - specialists to serve all weapons systems and military equipment, which will and will go to the troops before the 2020 year. The Minister of Defense noted that the justifications for this number were submitted to the Supreme Commander, as well as the set schedule, which is synchronized with the arrival of new equipment.

“That is, we do not strive to recruit as much as possible, but we strive to recruit exclusively for the arising tasks caused by the arrival of new weapon and equipment systems,” said Army General Sergei Shoigu. - With the approval of the Supreme Commander, starting from 2014, we will start implementing this schedule and prepare financial and economic calculations not only for the recruitment of servicemen for the contract, but also for their maintenance.

Sergei Shoigu also drew particular attention to the issues of training and retraining of those who come to the contract service.

As Colonel-General Viktor Goremykin, head of the Main Department of Personnel of the Ministry of Defense, explained after the meeting, much attention in the military department is paid to stimulating the military work of military personnel on a contract basis. Indeed, in order to fulfill the indicated plans, it is necessary not only to select new candidates from the “citizen”, but also to ensure the desire of the majority of contractors to sign the second and subsequent contracts with the military department, that is, to keep this category of people in uniform in the army and navy.

A number of measures in this direction are taken within the military department. Thus, from November 27, the Minister of Defense approved the new model regulations for the service of military personnel under a contract, which envisages arrival at the 9.00 service and departure for 18.00. Reporting this decision, Colonel-General Viktor Goremykin nevertheless noted that “of course, the commanders of military units and formations have the right to adjust the working day taking into account elements of combat training.” But in this case, he stressed, additional days of rest will be provided to servicemen.

Among the material measures aimed at preserving contract military servicemen in military service, the head of the General Directorate of Personnel called an increase in the amount of money allowances and the introduction of a number of allowances for special conditions of service.

- We have developed and will soon take measures to provide free medical care in medical institutions of the Ministry of Defense for members of families of servicemen under contract. “Free travel to and from the place of vacation is also envisaged,” he said.

According to Colonel-General Viktor Goremykin, the Ministry of Defense “expects to expand the sources of recruitment of servicemen under contract. As you know, now they are selected from the reserve or from among conscripts at the end of their military service.

“We went further, and recently introduced a bill providing for the right of choice for citizens: to serve one year for a conscription or two years under a contract,” said the head of the Main Department of Personnel.

According to him, this initiative is supported by all security agencies.

“If everything is normal, I think next year we will work with new sources of recruitment for military personnel under the contract,” Colonel General Goremykin expressed hope.

At the meeting, the Minister of Defense did not ignore the question and began the issue in the troops of the new school year. The list of all exercises at various levels (with the exception of, of course, sudden ones) was brought to the officials. All combat training activities are financially secured and budgeted for 2014 of the year. There are enough ammunition and mines, rockets and shells, as well as fuel and lubricants - taking into account the decision to multiply increase the consumption of ammunition during the lessons - for all trainees. Under these conditions, much will depend on how ready our landfills are for intensifying the process of combat training, and the Minister of Defense asked the meeting’s participants to pay very serious attention to the state of the range equipment.

The meeting also discussed various aspects of the implementation of state defense orders. As the Minister of Defense noted, at the beginning of 2013, it was decided to monitor the plan for the implementation of the state defense order all the time, and not sporadically.

“Of course, there are certain results, the results are positive,” said Army General Sergei Shoigu. “This December will be quite different in December than in the 2012 year, when we had to complete the contracting without delay and pay frequently, making it through the 100-percent advance payment.

        No need to be so ironic. We must accept for the reality that our country was lucky with this minister. You would have looked more at key sections of the Cabinet and there would have been more order. S.K. Shoigu picked up a good team. Good luck to them.

      This would be more noticeable if theft in the army was significantly reduced and the general’s landings for using his official position became more, and not just a discharge to the reserve with all the privileges.

      For this purpose it was set to be immediately visible, but to dig a little deeper?

      Shoigu’s department - the Ministry of Emergencies was no better than Serdyukovsky - so it tried to make a government purchase, where, for example, it was ready to spend 214 thousand rubles on a three-seater sofa, 1,9 million rubles on a negotiation table, and 534 thousand rubles on a cupboard for a coffee machine , on the carpet - also more than half a million rubles, and on the globe - almost 178 thousand rubles.
      During the accident at the Sayano-Shushenskaya Hydroelectric Power Station, 60 divers from the Ministry of Emergencies for four days could not seal the compartment to begin pumping water. Divers from private structures with six of them completed the task in four hours.
      On March 29, 2010, an EMERCOM helicopter flew to the metro 30 minutes after the explosion in the Moscow metro, and later ambulances.
      The Ministry of Emergency Situations is allowed to import cars and motorbikes without paying import duties that will be used in the liquidation of natural disasters, as well as any other activities of the department and its authorized organizations.
      If we compare the statistics of 1998, when firefighters were part of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, and the current one, when they were in the Ministry of Emergencies, we can clearly see the deterioration. The forest fire extinguishing system in Russia today is completely collapsed. In Soviet times, there were several different services involved in the protection of forests, including from fires. Extensive fire fighting experience. There was a network of voluntary fire brigades. Now the forest guard and the effective federal air forest protection, which was specifically engaged in extinguishing fires, have been destroyed. Its federal status made it possible, if necessary, to quickly throw airplanes, helicopters and paratroopers-firefighters landing near the burning site, to other regions for help. A few years ago, she lost her federal status. Some of its elements remained under the jurisdiction of the regions, but on the whole, the aviation conservation completely lost its effectiveness. All that was received by the federal aviation forest protection was transferred to the Ministry of Emergency Situations for the creation in 2010 of an international Euro-squadron to extinguish forest fires in the Balkans, Greece and Italy.

      In general, even reluctance to write further

    In general, the news from the Ministry of Defense is positive, they will be raking after Serdyukov for a long time. The issues of providing housing for servicemen are being resolved and this is good. Combat training is no longer "in the corral". Of course, the defense order must be constantly monitored at 100%. But the pension rights of those who retired Moscow Region at 45-50 years old and those who are 60-90 years old are the same; the same set of 0,56 + 2% +% inflation every year. At 45-50 they continue to work in civilian life, and at 60-90 years old - health does not always allow working.

    On paper and at meetings, everything is positive for them! In fact, worse. Today I talked with a boy who was demobilized from the Navy special forces. As expected, there is no equipment and weapons updates and is not expected (everything is Soviet), food is sour cabbage (here you have a buffet about which the authorities weave to us), the mood of the officers - "even do not wait ... ". What is called first-hand information. And this is the elite of the Fleet! And what happens in the linear parts then?

      It’s not difficult to guess what’s going on in the linear, if the elite is in such a state. All this looks like PR. There’s nothing else to call it.

    Judging by the posts, you involuntarily come to the thought of why we all love to wholesale shit, you need to be completely blind so as not to see what changes are happening in the army, that Serdyuk has been ruined by the good, is returning, or give everything right away, something that has been ruined for years, maybe Serdyuk to return to you?
