Shoigu called the new military threats to Russia

50
Last Tuesday, the first meeting of the Defense Ministry Board was held this year, which, according to Minister Sergei Shoigu, was devoted to discussing President Vladimir Putin’s message to the Federal Assembly (applicable, of course, to the defense segment). The results were summed up and further directions for the development of the country's security system, the development of the defense industry, and the army as a whole were determined.


Shoigu called the new military threats to Russia


In fact, many topics for discussion can hardly be called new. For example, we again spoke about the need for planned manning of the Russian army by contract servicemen and the need for timely implementation of the state defense order aimed at large-scale modernization of the army and fleet. It seems that without such a repeated repetition of the text of the task posed today, the very fact of its solution is not obvious ... But still, it’s better to repeat once again and ultimately achieve goals than with a quiet glander (as it was not so long ago) just to release all the directives on the brakes.

In his speech, the Minister of Defense touched on the pace and volume of the implementation of the GOZ last year. At the same time, Sergei Shoigu himself presented the figures obtained as a result of summing up the implementation of GOZ-2013. It turned out that purchases of weapons and military equipment stopped at 93%, part of the R & D performed at 96%, repair and maintenance of military equipment was completed at 91%. At the same time, the total volume of concluded contracts, according to the data presented at the Board, was 99,9% (from the speech of Shoigu himself).

The head of the military department of the Russian Federation noted that there were those areas where all contracts, without exception, were fulfilled and deliveries of military equipment to the troops passed without disruption. We are talking about the supply of strategic missiles, air defense systems and UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles). The Minister of Defense particularly singled out the first conclusion of life cycle contracts - contracts for the creation and the full cycle of the subsequent maintenance of this or that equipment, up to its final disposal. The total amount of contracts of the type mentioned is 120 billion rubles.

During the speech, the Minister spoke about the implementation of plans for the provision of housing for servicemen, for the repair and rehabilitation work related to equipment. One of the parts that caused the greatest subsequent discussions is the part devoted to the subject of new threats to the security of Russia. Shoigu made a special emphasis on the presentation of such threats. According to him, new threats for Russia are, quote:

the deployment of a global missile defense system and the deployment of its components near the Russian borders, the creation of new effective means of high-precision weapons in the usual equipment, the militarization of outer space.


At the same time, the Minister of Defense immediately noted that Russia was forced to take retaliatory measures, carrying out tasks to further strengthen the nuclear triad, to form a global intelligence system (including using a space grouping), to develop aviation, Navy and Ground Forces.

So, if we return to the threats that Sergei Shoigu outlined in his speech, then you can see that the Russian minister placed first priority on the deployment of the American missile defense system. Did it happen by chance? With high probability, we can say that it is not at all accidental.

Whatever the state of the Russian economy, there is at least one factor that is a deterrent to our “partners”. And this factor is the presence of nuclear weapons in Russia. If for a moment it is assumed that the Russian nuclear triad suddenly ceases to exist or external or internal conditions are created under which the effectiveness of this triad is equal to zero, then the hands of the “partners” are actually untied by themselves. What can Russia then expect? Frankly, there are not so many scenarios: Libyan, as one of the concrete examples. After the execution of this scenario - the transition to the process of real fragmentation, which is well seen today in the same Libyan example.

Once, our country has already experienced when the internal political "elites" played out a scenario written outside the state, according to which all the country's military might was simply out of business. This, of course, is about the process of the collapse of the USSR. Yes - the Country of Soviets had a powerful army, the country possessed effective weapons (including nuclear), the Soviet fleet was present in the world ocean, the Soviet aviation conquered the vastness of the air oceans, but all this was actually blocked by internal disassemblies - the bone that external forces were thrown to the above-mentioned "elites", choosing the main conductor of the ideas of schism. And the split, as we all know, took place.

It says that countering the deployment of the US missile defense system should be conducted not only without any regard for the reaction of the “partners” (after the US declared that the missile defense program continued to be implemented even after the change of Iran’s political leadership, Russia would - reaction to the response - should be just uninteresting), but with the full understanding that such resistance should really work. To work is already not so much in the military as in the political context. In other words, if countermeasures, positioned as an answer to the deployment of the same missile defense system in Europe, are taken, then we need a guarantee that these measures will not again be “stopped” during political fights inside the country. As an example: in the USA the President Democrat replaced the president of the Republican, but this almost did not affect the continuation of setting up radars and antimissiles in the agreed parts of world territory (and the water area with the help of special warships). That is, the security system of the United States is, as it were, supra-political and will be developed in spite of everything - not on the party’s functions of the president, nor on his skin color, nor on the cut of a suit.

This is exactly the American experience that Russia should adopt. Although there will be those citizens who declare that we should have our own way here too. If it exists, then what is it in - can it really depend on the effectiveness of the national defense and security system on the moods of one or another representative of the highest state power? If so, then this path very much resembles the classic Russian roulette, which had already borne its horrific fruit once in 1991 year.

In general, the threats are named, ways to neutralize them are determined, it remains to ensure that the course towards safety (not only on the basis of nuclear weapons, of course) is a priority under any conditions (under any government, under any president). Otherwise, the scenario that our country has already experienced will repeat, and after the implementation of which, it still cannot come to its senses.

    I somehow didn’t find terrorist among the threats, since Shoigu heard it with my own ears and there was this point there, let the absence of this in this article (due to Oversight or intentionally) remain on the conscience of its author. It is clear that not everything in military policy can be said openly, but judging by deeds and not by words, the movement vector is clearly defined, tasks are set, results have appeared, and they are not going to slow down. The most important thing is that the words do not diverge from the deed, and those who consciously interfere with this movement (I know for sure they are) were timely identified and eliminated in an appropriate way.

          the fight against terrorism is precisely the "tasks ... of other troops." And how the army can fight terrorism is not clear. The army has, of course, special forces (special forces of the GRU), but he himself is a sabotage and terrorist unit. The only thing the army can do is share its intelligence on the terrorist threat.

            Here are the facts:

            "On May 12, 2012, a military delegation of the Russian Airborne Forces flew to the United States to participate in the first American-Russian anti-terrorist exercise in the history of the two countries, which will be held at the Fort Carson military base (USA, Colorado).
            On the American side, a special operations unit of the US Army will take part in the exercise, on the Russian side - a special purpose reconnaissance unit of the Airborne Forces of the Russian Armed Forces from a military unit of the Airborne Forces stationed in Kubinka near Moscow and a leadership group from the Airborne Forces Command. "( site "sdelanounas.ru", "Russian-American anti-terrorist exercises")


            “Today at the Chebarkul training ground near Chelyabinsk the second, active stage of the exercises has started. The first stage of the maneuvers began on July 27 under the code name" redeployment ", when the forces and assets of the Russian and Chinese armies were pulled into the training ground.
            An aviation group of Flying Leopard fighter-bombers (JH-7A) of the Air Force of the People's Liberation Army of China arrived at the Chebarkul training ground, and units of ground forces were deployed from China to the South Urals by rail.
            The exercises are large-scale and bring together more than 1,5 thousand servicemen from both sides, as well as about 250 units of military equipment, including 20 aircraft and helicopters. The Russian-Chinese exercises will last until August 15, reports Pravda.Ru. "(Site newsinfo.ru, article" The armies of Russia and the PRC have started joint anti-terrorist exercises "Peace Mission-2013".)

            "An interdepartmental anti-terrorist exercise took place on Sakhalin Island.
            A special unit of the motorized rifle formation of the Eastern Military District, deployed on Sakhalin Island, took part in the interdepartmental anti-terrorism exercise, which ended on the eve.
            One of the main tasks of the training was to work out the mechanism of interaction between units of law enforcement agencies in carrying out activities to prevent the commission of a terrorist act on the territory of an important facility.
            At the practical stage, the personnel of the unit were alerted and arrived in the training area, where they completed the tasks of blocking the conditional terrorists preparing the attack.
            About 100 servicemen and 15 pieces of equipment were involved in the exercise from the Eastern Military District. "(Site" voennovosti.ru ", article" Anti-terrorist exercises on Sakhalin "dated 24.07.2013)

              Add:

              "The bomber aviation of the Central Military District (CVO) of the Russian Federation conducted exercises to destroy the detachments of" terrorists "armed with portable anti-aircraft missile systems, the press service of the Central Military District told reporters on Friday.
              "In the Chelyabinsk region, at the Shagol air base, tactical flight exercises of the bomber aviation of the Central Military District have been completed. The crews of the Su-24M front-line bombers have practiced conducting combat operations to defeat the enemy in the operational and tactical depth," said a spokesman.
              According to the plan of the exercises, on the territory of one of the states of Central Asia, the activities of a numerous illegal armed group were revealed. The ground group of troops blocked a group of "terrorists". The destruction of scattered groups of "terrorists" was undertaken by the crews of the bombers.

              During targeted bombing, four high-explosive fragmentation bombs weighing 250-kilograms with an area of ​​destruction of more than a thousand square meters were dropped. In addition, in the course of performing special tasks, the Central Military District pilots consumed more than twenty 100-kilogram daylight bombing bombs and ten 240-millimeter unguided missiles.
              As the representative of the Central Military District noted, the exercises were conducted as close as possible to combat operations. "Terrorists" used portable anti-aircraft missile systems with a thermal homing system against aviation, to combat which military aviators used heat traps. "(Site" mil.by ", article" Pilots of the Central Military District of the Russian Federation destroyed several groups of "terrorists" with MANPADS during exercises ").

              Convinced?

              Although, I confess, I also consider this task unusual for the RF Armed Forces.
              But here the questions are already for our strategists.

                We must be able to put the line between gangs and sabotage groups.
                There is no cold war, so any exercises now justify a sort of ersatz version of the enemy — terrorism. Although suppose that the bang did not become such countries as the United States, Russia, the PRC - and I guarantee you that terrorism will disappear by itself.
                terrorism - games of "big countries" with each other.

            The army can fight terrorism with all the means at its disposal for this and, above all, weapons. Special forces in the Armed Forces are involved in special tasks and are subordinate to the General Staff of the Armed Forces and personally to the President of the Russian Federation.

              Yes, this is not about that.

              I did not cite the GRU special forces as an example, but the usual units of the Armed Forces: front-line bomber aircraft of the Air Force, Airborne Forces, and motorized rifle troops.

              A couple of years ago, there were even reports of anti-terrorist exercises using the Tochka-U OTR.

    quote-As an example: in the United States, a Democrat president succeeded a Republican president, but this had little effect on the continued deployment of radar and anti-missile missiles in designated parts of the world (and waters using special warships). That is, the security system of the United States - it’s as if supra-political and it will develop in spite of everything - neither the partisanship of the president, nor his skin color, nor the cut of his suit.

    This is precisely the American experience that Russia must adopt.


    Alexei, you have come to the very point. Every citizen of the Russian Federation must be not only a patriot of his country but also a statesman.It's kind of duty and not law. You can’t be indifferent to the fate of the country, including with regard to the security of the Motherland.

    I "like" it when they talk about the American experience. The last war the Americans fought was the Vietnam War. But after watching the perestroika films about the American special forces, we decided that the Hollywood image is what really exists. As I understand it, Americans are good fighters in Hollywood films. That is, their army is Hollywood. And the fact that they have dressed Russian soldiers in NATO uniform will not change anything. And experience should be taken from everyone. To date, this is the experience of the Syrian soldiers.

    What is Syria resisting now? Yes, there is support for Russia and China that did not allow them to strike at it with all the might of NATO, but it rests on the support of most of the people, on the strength of the spirit of the defenders. After the first battle of clashes in a high-tech war, when ammunition is consumed and their production is destroyed, old equipment will come into action, the civilian population will take up arms. The hope for drones hope, but prepare the partisans. There should be a universal military duty and it should be honorable, every sovereign person should be ready with arms to defend their homeland. If you have not served and are not ready to defend your homeland, then there is nothing to do in the public service.

        One readiness is not enough - it is necessary to create and work with mobreservists and the technical component of mobility reserve. We have adopted the Law on the mobile reserve (I think at the end of 2012), but things are still there. In the military registration and enlistment offices in the field, he is simply known and no more. Today there was data on Her Majesty's Armed Forces - reservists of the ground forces make up 25%, and in the USA and Israel there is also a tangible potential. By 2015, it was planned to attract 9000 people. In the event of a military conflict, the losses will have to be made up for by the bulk who were in the barracks about 10 years ago during the bad 90s when the army service consisted of cleaning up the territory and searching for food. (I do not cite Chechnya as an example - after all, far from all the military passed through it)

    The main threat is to prevent the reincarnation of Gorbi, EBN, Gaidar, Chubais and other obvious or political corpses, many of which are still stinking pretty much. Having stopped the internal threat, you can not be afraid of the external one - well, there are no fools in the world to burn in nuclear hell for the dubious benefits of an attack on Russia.

      Here, to the point - "having stopped the internal threat from the external one can not be afraid" - consider the program for the action of the President of the Russian Federation to ensure the national security of the country. I completely agree!!!

      hi partially - right ...
      But what about the creeping NATO to the East ?! Moldova, Ukraine, Georgia? ...
      the emergence of fundamentally new types of weapons among sworn "partners" and the large number of Asian neighbors?
      stopping threats should be invariantly multi-vector, due to both new (and existing) external and internal circumstances

    Although there are and those citizens who declare that here we must have our own path. If there is one, then what is it - is it really that the effectiveness of the national defense and security system depends on the mood of one or another representative of the highest state power?

    The only threat to Russia is the existence of the United States, the remaining threats are derivatives.

      Poor, poor Ukraine.
      Tolerates for the older sister.
      And they press on her only because she is a sister.
      In order to senior elder.
      What a fun spree in the White House now.
      Everything is from there. Everything is from there.
      Maybe now in Kiev they will understand where the real vorog is.

        yes, she is not a sister ... but a full-time fruit of white Poles and Germans after 1917.

    CA is now a much more real threat. Yes, the United States loots money, organizes revolutions, but the SA directly sponsors terrorists in order to kill and wreak havoc. Not even encrypted.

    And on the topic ...
    The real military threat is inside.
    I really like the structure of the Swiss army. In fact, it is a social structure designed to prepare a person for difficulties in everyday life. There is a small layer of professional military personnel, but the emphasis is on the social adaptation of young people to the realities of life. All men and many women go through the army there, and many social options open up there only after serving in the army. In our country, it is believed that he went to the army - it means "a goof, he could not cut it." Perhaps such a system has taken root in the absence of real military threats, but the topic is certainly interesting. Because having an instrument rejected by society at hand, you will not be able to live in peace.

    The country's defense is an unshakable factor and the opinion of the 5th column, on liberalizing the military doctrine of Russia, must be regarded as a criminal offense. In the next decade, there will be many who want to stare at our resources, and we must keep the army fighting.
    Already now, in Russia there are 15-20 million Gastes, without weapons yet, but what will happen tomorrow? The military doctrine should also consider the ability to mobilize the population in the event of such a threat. For example, in Finland,
    Norway and other countries, pay much attention to the preparation of a combat-ready population in the methods of conduct
    war in extreme situations, when the main forces of the army are busy repulsing an external enemy.
    It may happen that gastas or other forces can block the vital centers of the country. So what?
    Will we fight back with sticks and knives?

      I agree, while neither the FMS, nor the FSB, nor the Ministry of Internal Affairs are able to give a clear answer to the question: How many among these millions of foreign migrants who are in the Russian Federation (and how many will arrive) are members of ethnic organized crime groups, etc., but sticks and knives is another matter. In Finland, Norway and other countries, I think they don’t scorch each other on drunk or in traffic jams from injuries, but that's another topic ...

    In addition to the problems of terrorism and the "fifth column", in the solution of which, of course, the army plays one of the important roles, an equally important topic, regarding the placement of weapons in space, by the way, from the treaty on the "ban on weapons in space", the Americans, my, come out. What does it mean?

    This is what happens - the State Defense Order of 2013 is also not fulfilled?
    Now about the priority tasks. What I liked in this article by A. Volodin is his reference to the priority task of all US presidents - national security. And most importantly, not just in words!
    It is clear that the nuclear forces of our country are a deterrent to the aggressor. But as the author of this article correctly noted, the nuclear triad could not stop the collapse of the USSR. The culprits of the collapse of the USSR today walk in the heroes of the current rulers. The task outlined by the enemies of Russia to destroy it is being consistently carried out. The events taking place today in Ukraine are links of one chain.

    Quote: In general, threats are named, ways to neutralize them are identified, it remains to ensure that the course on security (not only based on nuclear weapons, of course) is a priority

    First of all, the words of our military-political leadership should not diverge from deeds. If it was said that Russia would install Iskander in the Kaliningrad region, then they should be installed. Poles and Hungarians should know: precision-guided (nuclear) weapons are aimed at them. Unfortunately, there is no such fact. There is empty talk. The West should see Russia's determination in upholding its national interests.

    This is precisely the American experience that Russia must adopt.
    The main threat to Russia is the betrayal of the domestic political elites. "Gorbachevschina" on a large scale, "Serdyukovschina" in trifles is more terrible than the American missile defense system.

    well ... as I understand it, Americans in 5-7 years can be guaranteed to hit our rockets on takeoff .... at least the terrestrial base ...
    Countermeasures should move from the "And we will ..." phase to the "We're done!"

    The Cold War, not started by us and by the way never ending, continues. Everything else is from the evil one. As you know, we have only two allies - the Army and the Navy. Only a blind person does not see, and a deaf person does not hear what is happening around us, so the only way out is to strengthen defenses. And whoever has a different opinion, you yourself know who is.

    The strengthening of the nuclear triad is invariably pleasing. Particularly pleased with the strengthening in the absence of one of the components of the triad, namely, strategic aviation. What will we strengthen? How can we increase the erection of the grandmother if she has nothing to raise and nothing to do? Who are we building strategic bombers today? Well or though would it mend? What is there NOT a discrepancy between words and deeds?! Complete nonsense for housewives. It is unclear how healthy men are being led to it. Nonsense. Very sad, since it's lying, then everything is worthless. And how the hell we know. Well, on the other hand, we can it’s for the better. A type of talker is a godsend for spyenof. And our minister is not a talker, he only slightly hangs noodles on his ears, but he will not give out military secrets. :)
