      This news should not be news, but the norm. In Soviet times, even district-level exercises were not always the topic of news. And the study was set so that the current Armed Forces of the Russian Federation to those Soviet, wrestle and wrap.

    In order for these words to become reality, it is necessary to "plow" and a lot, all of us !!! Each in its place! I remember the words of my first commander: "If you" plowed "20 hours a day and the feeling of dissatisfaction with the day you lived does not leave you !? You can safely assume that this day you have completely devoted yourself to service !!!" He was a wonderful general !!! To the "marrow" of a military man and a patriot of the Motherland! That's all! I have the honor! soldier

      Pfff (how tired of all of you, with your monotonous statements), the time when the Russian special forces had to act has long been hopelessly lost. It was necessary to show a little more political will and take after the Crimea the Donbass and the Luhansk region. There would not be these tens of thousands of deaths, destroyed cities and villages, hungry children and refugees. It would simply did not have like a nightmare. Now it’s too late, when the sea of ​​blood has been shed, neither side will calm down until it destroys the other ...

    Well, we read between the lines: the landing in Odessa, the destruction of Ukrainian Nazis and the defense of the coast from a possible NATO landing. Of course, the guys will be supported by the World Cup Fleet and Aviation, not to mention the inhabitants of Odessa, the main thing is to give law-abductors to the brains.

    Teaching is good! But it would be nice to update the equipment for the marines, because in the same United States, the marines are elite and are equipped with modern weapons and equipment. And we forget something about the Marines. Although of course the main thing is not the technique, but the person’s mood, fighting spirit, so to speak, but nevertheless, it would be nice to update them.

    The exercises should become the norm, and not some kind of epoch-making event. Thank you colleague for the mention of ekranoplanes. I am convinced that this area in shipbuilding should be further developed: speed, striking power of the ship in essence 2-1 rank, the ability to quickly deploy troops to long distances (after all, what Soviet experience was gained!) These boats are needed in almost any theater of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, although they were worked out only in the Caspian Sea. They have a future.
