The military departments of Russia and Germany demonstrate great potential for cooperation.

The military departments of Russia and Germany demonstrate great potential for cooperation.

On Thursday, 15 September, the German military delegation led by the Minister of Defense of the Federal Republic of Germany, Thomas de Mezieres, during a one-day working visit to Moscow, held talks with Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov.


The heads of the military ministries of the two countries reviewed the development of military cooperation between Russia and Germany, discussed topical European security issues - US plans to deploy missile defense elements in Europe.

The talks held with the German Defense Minister showed a great potential for Russian-German interaction. The Russian side has shown interest in the German experience in reforming the national armed forces, solving social and medical issues for military personnel, and the military education system.

The Russian Defense Ministry intends to learn from Germany’s experience in creating a military police force. Positive solutions were achieved in all these areas.


Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov told reporters that negotiations showed good prospects for expanding military-technical cooperation. Russia is interested in certain military products of Germany. According to him: "We are interested in some types of military products offered by German enterprises. Instructions have been given to work experts in this direction."

In turn, the Minister of Defense of Germany, Thomas de Mezieres, noted that Germany is interested in building in Russia a center for combat training of the Ground Forces, which already exists in Germany. Recall that in June of this year, Serdyukov and the Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Army General Nikolai Makarov, have already visited the Federal Republic of Germany.

At that time, the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation and the chairman of the board of directors of Rheinmetall AG, Klaus Eberhardt, signed an agreement on the construction of the Center for Combat Training of Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in Mulino (Nizhny Novgorod Region). According to Serdyukov, this Center will begin to operate in the middle of 2014, and "will be the most powerful and most modern."


The negotiations also raised the issue of deploying a NATO missile defense system in Europe. The Russian minister shared Russia's concerns about this. Meanwhile, the German Defense Minister noted that "we do not share, but we understand Russia's concern in this context. We expect that before the NATO summit in Chicago (May 2012), Russia and the United States will come to an agreement on this issue," he.

Summing up, the German Defense Minister expressed his satisfaction with the level of Russian-German cooperation. “I am very pleased with the intensity of our relations with the Russian side,” he stressed.

"Annual cooperation programs for 2011 and 2012 years have already been drawn up, including the continuation of negotiations in the format of negotiations," added the German Defense Minister. In the 2011 year, the bilateral activity plan included about 30 events. The same scale of interaction is planned to be maintained next year.


Thus, the talks held showed a great potential for Russian-German interaction. The ministers of war expressed the hope that close cooperation between Russia and Germany will continue in the future and serve to strengthen the strategic interaction between Russia and Germany, preserve peace and stability in Europe and in the world as a whole.

    Strange, but where are the cries of "Perdyukov sells his homeland to the Germans!" or for this case nothing has been written in the training manual?

    More and more signs that the terrible dream of the Naglosaksaks, Russia + Germany = friendship, is becoming a reality smile

      I agree - on this front, Russian diplomacy has achieved certain successes

      There is no full-fledged friendship yet - but the fact that Germany no longer jacked pendos is unambiguous. The main success of Putin’s team was, of course, Nord Stream, which made Germany a gas hub - distributor

      Germany and Russia are moving towards rapprochement. And this, of course, causes a reaction of pendos and (as you have successfully put it) arrogant Saxons

      I will also join the opinions below about that. that there is no confrontation with large Europe now - nor military tensions either. It looks like Europe and Russia are moving towards economic partnership and complementarity

      And the tension and the confrontation now (yes, in principle always) with the pendosy naglosaks and the "world behind the scenes" - I do not know how to correctly name this third force

      If ever Russia comes to a strategic alliance with Germany (not as a defeated vassal - but as an equal partner, an empire uniting several republics of Eurasia) - it will be a huge success - the union of the Germans and Eurasia will create the most powerful pole of power in the world. Neither the Chinese nor the pendos nor the "backstage" will be scared

      We have no allies in the world. It is necessary to raise Germany by making her a club. The Germans with the Anglo-Saxons were always enemies

      Do not wait to believe who lives here, the Germans even after so many years after 45 have remained fear and the words Die Russe kommen cause genetic fear.

    No words, very impressive! The strongest army in Europe, our likely and potential adversary for NATO, according to the Minister of Defense of Russia, will build for Russia money the most powerful and modern Combat Training Center of the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Russia, so that in case of war we defeat them!
    How can this be understood!
    We were friends with the Germans, that everything came of this; everyone knows that 27 of millions of Soviet people paid with their lives for such a "friendship."
    It remains for the Minister of Defense of Russia to only force Russian soldiers and officers in the attack to shout “for the homeland, for Putin URA”, and behind the military police trained by the Germans.
    As the children say at school - “They sailed, nowhere else to go!”.

      stas,
      yes give up! We are talking about the "stuffing" of the Center, and not about the techniques and German instructors. An obstacle course is not the only thing a modern warrior needs. I am sure you know about aircraft manufacturers and artillery spotters. So it’s good that we are trying to take something from our possible opponents. Great Peter did not hesitate to study, why are you not happy, Stas?

        Who - who, and the Germans know how to count and calculate everything very well.
        We are their adversary No. 1.
        It’s unlikely to make us a modern filling of the landfill, so that we can use the gained experience against them.
        Have we signed a new treaty on not attacking, as before the 22 of June 1941 of the year!
        History has the property of repeating itself. Or are the Russians again preparing another stupid thing for the Germans?
        It’s dangerous not to underestimate the enemy, all the more so. The 21 century has just begun, and no one can guarantee that it will end without a big war.
        Before the war, the Soviet people were sure that everything was being done right in the army. You know the result.
        You can buy something from the Germans, but you must build it yourself, and do not disperse military schools.

          stas,
          we won’t fight the Germans anymore, I’m telling you exactly. It is better to cast your insightful look (without humor I write) to the south of the geographical map, there are much more dangers there.
          About Germany. There are no incitements to historical revenge either at the political (even at the land level) or at the household level. The Germans have long been not the country that in 1933, when Hitler came to power, I assure you.

            Otto von Bismarck.
            The war between Germany and Russia is the greatest stupidity. That is why it is bound to happen. The main thing is not desire, but the potential potential to begin it.

            Hitler confirmed this quote from Bismarck.

            mitrich, God forbid that you were right!

            Paul do not rush, how many times were the Germans wrong? And our German kings were remember who accounted for Nicholas 2 Wilhelm? And how did it end?

      Yes, it was already such a thing once, and their pilots and tankers trained with us and climbers admired the Caucasus, though later it turned out that they were from the Edelweiss division, they studied the theater of the database, so to speak

    At the beginning of the twentieth century, there was also a rapprochement between Germany and the USSR. We trained them, then they taught us, and what did it lead to?

    something reminiscent of the 40s of the last century, when a non-aggression pact was signed with Germany, and then two years later the Germans attacked in violation of all agreements, one cannot believe Europe or America
