The Ministry of Defense in 2014 reached historical the maximum number of contractors accepted into the Armed Forces, now they need to be well prepared for further service, Sergei Shoigu said at a departmental board on October 21. It is reported RIA News.

This year, the largest number of contractors has been recruited into the Russian army.


“Currently, we are continuing to gradually increase the share of military personnel under military service under the contract. At the same time, it is important that the quality of selection of candidates for contracting is high, ”said the Minister.

“First of all,” he clarified, “we need to select citizens with sufficient life experience, military accounting skills, and high moral and psychological qualities.” Shoigu recalled that for this there is a "system of multi-level selection of candidates."

“But tough selection for the army is not all,” he stressed. “It is important that contract servicemen constantly improve combat training and skills.”

“As it is customary to say now, this year we reached the historical maximum, such a level for recruiting contract servicemen in the Armed Forces was not yet. Now we need to seriously think about quality ", which comes" with the improvement and improvement of the level of education, training, education and discipline, "said the head of department.

According to him, the Ministry of Defense studied the experience of other countries, which shows that in all the armies that had completely switched to contract service, there was a surge in disciplinary offenses and crime. “We will have to go through this stage anyway,” the minister warned. “Therefore, having studied this experience, and, naturally, having made our decisions, I hope we will find the right solutions.”

He said that the college "is to review the implementation of the Integrated Plan for maintaining law and order, improving the service of the troops and ensuring the security of military service in the Armed Forces for 2014 year." “I think that the decisions that we will make will have to get into our plan and program for 2015 year and subsequent years,” said Sergey Shoigu.

      You are right, the contractor should work, not go to work and receive money. HOW DOES THE CONFLICT OR THE WAR START?

        They do not have the right to quit. Only temporary due to the death of relatives.
        The conscription army is just a huge amount of cannon fodder. The times of the 2nd World War, when countries called for by this principle, ended.
        You just need to perceive the contractors as those who wanted to professionally connect their lives with the army. They pay not fantastic money, but the people go.
        The call remained, so that in the case of the universal sheher they will still be called upon.

        Everyone watched the FILM "Officers", but I disagree with the catch phrase and changed it:
        "THERE IS SUCH A CALL - TO PROTECT THE MOTHERLAND !!!"
        As soon as it becomes a job, you have to leave, the same applies to medicine and education ...
        If the SERVICE to the MOTHERLAND becomes a job, then it’s right that someone can and will quit at a time inconvenient for him, instead of executing an order to score, refuse to perform a combat mission, and so on ...
        So there is no such profession - to defend the Motherland, but there is SUCH calling, which makes you without hesitation to commit a soldier actions that civilians regard as a feat!
        Serviceman - a soldier who serves the homeland and his people!
        They are drafted into the army, so to serve the HOMELAND is - DRAWING!
        Who fought will understand ...
        Sincerely, I express my humble opinion.

          GRANATE-19, I fully agree and support, "not for the sake of money, but to defend the Motherland!" After all, in Russia from time immemorial it was a soldier to be an honorary one. We were proud of this.

    The main thing is that the contract soldiers themselves would go to serve in the army at the call of the heart and not for a long ruble, and in the case of grave circumstances for Russia, they would defend the Homeland, and not declare that if war, then I would quit.

    Our guys serve excellently, with many personally know and our army has changed significantly. From a semi-collective farm to a truly trained, motivated one to serve the Fatherland. Of course there are enough worries and problems, but the improvements are dramatic compared to the beginning of the century. If it weren’t for Serdyukov’s camarilla, the process of strengthening the army and navy would start soon. And as for the long ruble, it’s not so they pay a lot of money, now you can earn the most money on a civilian ...

    What long ruble are you all writing about? 18 thousand? And you will not receive those first 3 months. And for this it is necessary to go under the bullets and sit for months without any conditions in the fields. Enough of all nonsense to write. I hear a ring, but I don’t know where he is.

    high moral and psychological qualities. " Shoigu recalled that for this there is a "system of multi-level selection of candidates."

    If over the past year little has changed in the "selection system", then I would not really hope, especially for moral psychological quality !!!

    I had contractors with good specialists !!! Without them, I would not be able to complete the tasks assigned to the part !!! They did not get bad money. True, it was in the Arctic. Some still serve there, receive not bad. there’s even a line to call! For several years now, they have been sent annually to training camps for a period of 2-3 months for retraining.

    The best contractors are the officers. And if it’s also military officers, then ..... you yourself understand!

      I myself fought under the contract and was in the Caucasus twice, and so, I had a platoon before sending the train at night - transferred, since he has a dad general ...
      And conscripts and contract soldiers fought with me, no one died from my platoon, only wounds, and from other units we brought to our mothers a new year of LOAD 200 ...
      So that's how it came out - an officer ...
      I don’t remember him, neither his name nor his mug, but I despise him ... at a meeting, probably if he knew in person he would spat ...
      And other officers served and made friends with me, and helped, and perished, and I only have a fond memory and good memories of them.
      Regards, I express my humble opinion and memories

        YOU +! The main thing is not the title but the inner qualities of a person! it so happens that the officers run away, and the creepy little mechanic driver who jerks off "whether in the barracks he fires back to the last bullet or calls fire on himself ...
