      And you saw that the Putin government posted on the network a database of all citizens of the CIS and the Russian Federation: phones, addresses, photo and video recordings,
      personal correspondence and much more. By the way, all the data is publicly available, but you can hide your profile if you do not want others to see it.
      Here is a link to that site

    The military will become the basis of the new structure’s activities, but “socio-political issues, as well as resonant events in Russia and in the world, will not stand aside.”
    Who knows Shoigu mail, throw him a link to VO, let him not be tormented, everything is ready.

    I advise everyone to read the article "PR and Shoigu", I do not agree with everything, but leads to certain reflections.
    Quote from there:
    However, the practice of "aggressive emergency PR" was not slow to bear fruit. The constant and persistent mention of the Ministry of Emergency Situations in daily news reports has led many Russians to believe that the ministry is working stably and very efficiently, significantly ahead of other federal agencies in all respects. Further, it was concluded that effective work was the result of competent and even talented leadership on the part of Minister Sergei Shoigu. This opinion was convincingly supported by numerous picturesque portraits of the minister himself at the sites of crashes, landslides, and fires, which were helpfully shown to us every evening by state television.

      This only confirms the correctness of Shoigu's decision - propaganda must be dealt with seriously.

        one must seriously engage in propaganda.

        I agree, but the main thing is that the military news agency does not turn into a PR agency of the best minister.

        Boris You confuse propaganda and PR show window dress ....
        propaganda -this is the dissemination of political, philosophical, scientific, artistic and other views and ideas with the aim of introducing them into the public consciousness and activating mass practical activity. The main elements of the propaganda process: its subject (social group whose interests the propaganda expresses), content, forms and methods, means or channels of propaganda (radio, television, print, lecture propaganda system, etc.), object (audience or social communities to which propaganda is addressed). Decisive for understanding the process of propaganda are the social interests of its subject, their relationship with the interests of society as a whole and of individual groups to which propaganda is addressed .....

        How does this compare with what Shoigu does, there is pure Masonic PR))))
        Shoigu on Everything you need to weigh the vulture - "A MILITARY SECRET"....
        And the Western Mass Media should deal with the PRAR of the RF Armed Forces,
        * then the SSBN surfaced there, then rockets start from under the ice,
        * That "White Swans" fly around Easter Island,
        * And on the Norwegian border should be seen Tanks that wash the tracks at the junction of the Norwegian and Barents seas))))
        ** If you built the Aircraft and Tanks Plant, do not write where the equipment goes ...
        *** It is necessary to play the ALARM OF EMERGENCY EMERGENCY in a millionaire, with stopping enterprises and mass evacuation of the population and PAY THIS TO PEOPLE, and not throw out 600 million for the Information Support of the Ministry of Defense ....

          When Shoigu promoted the Emergencies Ministry, everyone considered his ministry the best.
          What's wrong with the same "PR" if MO becomes the best. What will be bad if the prestige of the army will rise in the eyes of our fellow citizens even before the Soviet period of our history?

          The demonstration of power is good when there is something to demonstrate.

          First a thought (throwing out 600 million for information support of the Ministry of Defense), then action.
          It is necessary to promote our ideology, otherwise our enemies will do it for us.

            The highest art, to make the enemy "work" for you ...
            Shoigu has personal PR, not the Ministry of Emergency Situations or the Ministry of Defense, hence the African motives in the clothes of this "general" who does not serve in the Army for a single day (wait, he WORKS there)))
            A cohort of "Galernykh", no-o-o-o-oo will not make sense with this "minister" for the country.
            Maybe they will give the Maltese cross again (there will be two, for the collapse of the USSR and the Russian Army))))

              At the expense of Shoigu, I am not flattering myself. He is from the "family" clan.
              The Putin-Shoigu alliance is beneficial for the "liquidation" of Western liberals led by Medvedev. And then we'll see ...

            It is necessary to raise the prestige of the army in front of citizens with real deeds, and not gorlopanism. The army is a part of society. When society feels the strength and power of its armed forces, then citizens will have peace of mind for themselves and for the state.

    The measure is timely, although very late. Is it possible that no one thought about such a question earlier ???

    Yes, for a long time it would be time to attract youth to military service! Create effective advertising services for the contract, make children's toys with samples of military equipment of the Russian Federation, revive military training at school!

    Shoigu is a master of PR. The decision is long overdue. Channel "Zvezda" is there and covers the history of military equipment, the life and work of outstanding Russian designers and commanders very well. There are also many interesting sites on the Internet. Why not unite media resources and, instead of rumors and conjectures of well-wishers, bring to the public both historical materials and the current state and prospects of the development of the Armed Forces? The main thing is that it does not turn into self-promotion.

    Correctly doing Shoigu, well done. Information is an ideological weapon, and mines should be used. defense to the fullest. In the age of information technology, they are neglected only by complete nerds, to whom the Minister of Defense is clearly not related.
