Probably in order to inform us. That we were aware of what is happening in our armed forces. In order to be able to receive information about events, and what is most necessary for a correspondent is to receive accreditation. There are such events, which without it will not be allowed.
I spent two days in the battle with the site www.mil.ru, trying to get information about the event "Aviadarts-2015". In order to obtain information about the competitions held in terms of where, when and at what time. Well, the issue of accreditation also worried me, since I already have certain experience in visiting facilities of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
The result is zero. It is time to recall how the issue of launching a new site was discussed, how developers and customers praised it. Well, and how much money was spent on its development and launch.
Any page "VKontakte" any online store, vporivayuschego bioadditives, more informative than the site MO. It simply does not function.
No, something there. Of course, there is. But finding information about Aviadarts 25 and 26 in May was unrealistic. The search simply did not work. Want to find - poke poles news, maybe you will find.
Asked for help to a knowledgeable person. So, to test yourself. Checked At the same time I found out that the “For the Media” section does not work (this is exactly where the application for accreditation is submitted), the search does not work, the “Air Force” section does not work, where I also thought to find the information I needed.
Search on the Internet also did not give anything. Apparently, Aviadarts is such a secret competition that, apart from the start and end dates, nothing else ... May 27 - June 1. What will happen these days, where it will be, in what time frame - the secret.
All I could “get hold of” was an ad on the VUNC website. Zhukovsky and Gagarin. With all that can be entertaining for those interested, 30 May will be held. What will happen on other days is a question.
And even on the website VUNC no additional information. And no chance to get it. In the "Contacts" section only the telephone numbers of the admission commission And there were not happy with my call with the lowest request to help in terms of the phone number of the person responsible for the conduct of Aviadarts.
As well as the results did not give a visit to the VUNC and to the landfill. On the test site on the opening day there were only soldiers gathering the stands. Naturally, with the commanders, these officers, even if they were willing to help, could hardly have been.
A visit to the VUNC also did not give anything. In response to my request to clarify the situation, I was asked if I had accreditation. This is too much: what's the accreditation? One gets the impression that accreditation is some kind of access to secret materials.
The schedule of events "Aviadarts", apparently, it is very secret materials.
All that remains is a visit to the Pogonovo test site on the indicated day of May 30. When all roads will be closed, as in the past year, and will carry from Berezovka (about 4 km) buses VUNC. Those who are lucky enough to get into them ... The rest, who are not lucky, will go, like last year, on foot. And there were so many. Not sure this year will be better. Attention to our armed forces, oddly enough, is growing. And obviously there will be more willing.
There are questions of a different nature.
Why is the Russian Ministry of Defense absolutely not interested in the normal coverage of their events?
Why is a site that has spent huge sums - no more than fiction?
Why is it impossible to access the competition schedule? What is the secrecy of this?
Why should the administration and the correspondent of the media, which has a military orientation, have to show wonders of wit and spend their time to get the opportunity to properly highlight the event MO?
But all the time on the agenda is the question of the need to support our armed forces with a printed word. And how to support them if they do not need it?
Why does the Ministry of Defense have a website?
