For the first time in Russia: contract selection from the Ministry of Defense

For the first time in stories Russia's Ministry of Defense will hold a large-scale one-time action on the recruitment of contract servicemen. This is reported on the site of the main military department of Russia. The action is planned to be held on 17 in May 2014 in Novorossiysk, Tula, Pskov and Ivanovo - cities where airborne units are stationed. It was on the basis of the Airborne Forces that it was decided to hold this action initially. From its results depends on the fate of such events.

For the first time in Russia: contract selection from the Ministry of Defense

The campaign is planned to be held in such a way that those who wish to conclude a contract with the Ministry of Defense can do it without losing time and visiting numerous instances. For this purpose, it is planned to deploy special mobile selection points for contractual services directly in the central squares of these cities. In these mobile units, applicants will be able to pass not only an interview and professional psychological selection, but also a medical examination as part of the preliminary medical examination.

If the candidate passes the first stage of the action without any problems, he will be invited directly to the territory of the military unit located in the same city where he will be given an examination in physical training. Here the future contractor will be able to get acquainted with life and other conditions of service. Following the results of such an action, a young person can receive a special certificate indicating that he has passed preliminary tests. The certificate will help him to conclude a contract with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation as a priority and go to serve in one of the training centers of the Airborne Forces.

The website of the Ministry of Defense informs that today in Russia 74 is operating special points for the selection of citizens of the Russian Federation for contract service. In less than a couple of months, such points will work in the new subjects of the Russian Federation - in the Republic of Crimea and in Sevastopol.

By May 2014, the number of contract soldiers in the Russian army was about 250 thousand people. By 2017, the number of servicemen under contract, according to plans, should reach 425 thousands of people.

        You don’t need to blunt, of course, but the sapper shovel (MPL-50 Malaya Infantry Shovel 50 cm long) is usually sharpened for hand-to-hand combat at a large angle, so it does not blunt when used intensively with chopping blows, this applies not only to hand-to-hand combat, but also cutting wood, cutting down a bush, and so on ... Having sharpened a shovel for a small degree of sharpening, you just blunt it in a few strokes (there will be a jam) and that's it, so based on experience - I advise you to be guided by my advice.
        If in hand-to-hand, SPECIFICALLY - I recommend a lanyard ...
        Sincerely, I express my humble opinion.

    It’s becoming very prestigious to serve in the army, not like in previous years with a Mercedes. If the recruitment is competitive, it will be a real highly professional army that can fulfill any assigned tasks.

      Believe me, she was like that in the beginning of 2000 (AND IN 1999) in the face of the war in the Caucasus! THE ARMY FULFILLED ITS MILITARY TASKS FOR ALL 150%, THERE ONLY FULFILLED ITS MILITARY TASKS SOLDIERS AND OFFICERS, WHICH WERE NOT NECESSARY WHEN YOU HAVE ANYWAY TO WAIT FROM IT! I PERSONALLY MEMORY MY OWN BROTHERS! But many still do not understand why we went to war, why we fought, and for which it was necessary! I WENT THERE VOLUNTARY ON THE CONTRACT!

    As a matter of fact, one of the intentions of the transition to contract service is the possibility of selecting candidates.
    That's right ... the contractor must be physically healthy ... without deviations in the psyche ... with a sufficient level of intelligence.
    A soldier is a difficult profession ... you need to be prepared for its development.

    The Airborne Forces and Marines are a good thing, but modern warfare is, above all, the most sophisticated weapons that professionals must manage. Yes, and motorized rifle worthless to forget. In the Airborne Forces, marines and border guards there has always been a competition, but people are needed for other specialties, especially those related to managing the latest weapons.

    And to increase the authority of the Army and the state, one former minister should be dealt with. And then the head is taken off the lieutenant and sergeant for combat readiness, and this is for the collapse of the army, the undermining of combat and mobilization readiness only stroking the head. Even Pasha Mercedes was more honest.

    That's right, it is necessary to raise the prestige of the army. The army is prestigious, and not as before, the army for the oaks.
    New ammunition, modern weapons, to promote any success.

    I myself remember how in childhood I looked at military broadcasts: about weapons, about intelligence.
    Where is all this now? Online only? Where on TV? Where are the patriotic games, films, shows, cartoons?
    Need to work in all directions. We need a generation that does not know what date 9 May is. Must know Zhukov, Suvorov, Kutuzov, Nakhivov, Makarov ... We have a rich history, heroic victories!
    I am ashamed not to know, ashamed!

Soon, I’ll retire, or if it’s now .. ECH ...... I know the difficulty of the service very well, if I were younger, I’d go.

    This is the result of the fact that the state has turned to face the needs of the army (and therefore to its needs) and that’s good. But the doctrine will have to be reviewed, including the number to increase to at least 1,2 million people.

    There is something similar now, but this process is in its infancy.
    From the beginning it is necessary to create all the conditions for these people, and even selected by competition, i.e. the best of the best, let’s say so. They called, and here the main problems begin with .... of the same contractors.
    1. There is no housing. 2. The monetary allowance promised upon signing the contract is much less than the real one.
    3. For several months (from 5 to 6) it is necessary to study, to study far from the wife (mother) with living in the soldiers' barracks.
    4. Already married men who have a child will be called up, but there are no places in children's institutions. D / kindergartens are simply not designed for so many kids.
    These are the problems that I wrote offhand because they are in plain sight. Without the solution of which it will not work to create an efficient contract army.
    Good luck to everyone.

    What can I say about this. For 12 years I have been working as a doctor in the military enlistment office. In the first years, almost no one went to the contract. Then, when the elevators were introduced, alcoholics went offended, offended that they were not allowed into the army. The last 2-3 years have gone not guys, men (25-30 years old) who know where and why they are going (during this time there is only one in the airborne forces). In my opinion, the set for the contract should be assigned to military units, selecting from the guys at the call of the present, and NOT FORCED, fit and willing to serve. Registration of all these questions (upon entering the military service under the contract), when I served as the chief of the unit, the candidate took a minimum of time (medical commission - most of all, how many analyzes should be passed).

      As the money went so in our neighboring part, fragile girls immediately began to be ousted by healthy children from the surrounding villages. Of course, it is impossible to say that the quality of these conscripts is the highest. But they are quite suitable for serving as arrows. One thing is bad - they are used to resting in a bottle in their hand. The southerners (Dagestanis and Ingush) began to appear, who (as they say) get a job in the army for bribes, in "a job worthy of a man." Well, a relatively small, but also significant part is made up of local demobilized conscripts, who, pushing around in civilian work, remember that they also have the rank of sergeant, which means that in the army they will receive twice or three times more than ordinary workers here in civilian life.
      They also take women "in the old fashioned way", but they are only due to a large officer's pull, often on condition that some less successful "auntie" is "written off".
      Well, of course, the annual draftees remain, among whom, it’s not so zealous, but work is still underway to transfer them to the contract.

    Everyone must go through the army.
    For the army accustoms to the discipline of organization and independence. And often instills elementary concepts such as education, responsibility, hygiene, communication, collectivism partnership.
    And only those who served urgent duty should be taken into contract service and know what it is. In the existing army, enough people want to stay to serve for a decent salary.
    Money is a breeze.
