Colonel-General L.G. IVASHOV answers the questions of the chief editor of "Soviet Russia" V.V. CHIKINA



Chikin V.V. Leonid Grigorievich, how would you rate the completed trial of the Oboronservis case and the main person involved, Evgenia Vasilyeva?
Ivashov L.G. This is not a judicial-investigative process, but a political and psychological performance that lasted for more than two years. Here, the law and the criminal procedure code rested, and domestic political Russian intrigue worked with its rollbacks, cuts, chums, etc. This so-called process demonstrated that there is Russia today and who run it. Returning to the third presidential term V.V. Putin saw that Serdyukov had almost crushed the army, it was not capable, the military-industrial complex did not receive an order for modern weapons and equipment, and therefore it was degrading along with the armed forces. As a matter of fact, the army was put up for auction, where the fattest pieces were taken over by their - friends and relatives of Serdyukov. The Russian military and patriotic public began to protest against the defeat of the country's defense, against the actions of the authorities led by the “supreme commander” - Mr. Medvedev. In addition, the events in Libya showed Putin that Western, above all American, friends and partners are ready to put in jail at any moment, hang up, crucify any of yesterday’s “friend” if he is militarily weak. As it happened with S. Milosevic, S. Hussein, M. Gaddafi. It is not difficult to project their fate ... Therefore, having returned to the presidential seat, Putin decided to stop the more than twenty-year demilitarization of the country and the defeat of the defense system and begin to revive the military potential. By the way, as a guarantee and your own security.

V.C. And do you think President Putin managed to restore the country's defense and how reliably are we protected now?
L.I. Valentin Vasilyevich, no need to build illusions. If for a quarter of a century, starting with Gorbachev, we showed the world an example of disarmament and peace-loving, and our “friends” in the West all these years have been heavily arming and covering our borders with military bases, then it is impossible to restore the defense potential in three years. By the way, I note that the highest defense budget in stories The United States was adopted by Congress, precisely when our army was defeated and military spending was reduced. A catastrophic situation has arisen in the defense sector of the Russian Federation, and it is no accident that the former Minister of Emergencies was appointed to the post of Minister of Defense. And the task of S.K. Shoigu was primarily to eliminate emergency consequences in the army and navyresulting from the successful actions of Serdyukov and Medvedev to eliminate the remnants of the country's defense potential.

Modern weapons systems are complex technological complexes created in close cooperation of education, science, design school and production. And if somewhere in this chain there is no one link, then the whole process of production of modern technology is disrupted. Yes, it is possible to buy the missing units, units, elements abroad, but for the time being. What we got today. Russia lost its own electronics, hardware components, and machine tools. The then Minister of Defense, Serdyukov, and the Chief of the General Staff, Makarov (Nikolka the servant, as he was called in the troops), led a policy of abandoning their own armor steel, controls, and generally headed for standardization with NATO.

V.C. But after all, the actions of Serdyukov and Makarov were not arbitrary, they were heard in the State Duma, the Federation Council, the reforms were approved by the Security Council of the Russian Federation.
L.I. You correctly noticed that the so-called. Serdyukov's reforms were not his improvisation, but the state policy of President Medvedev and his team. I. Yurgens, head of the Institute of Contemporary Development, who was called the “main brain gyrus” of that same team, speaking at a conference in Washington in July 2010, frankly stated that President Medvedev’s goal is to join Russia in NATO and to purchase equipment for the army and navy from NATO countries and Israel.

And, going back to the so-called lawsuit in the Oboronservis case, I would note that he was specifically made to the fraudulent schemes and a frivolous lady was appointed to the position of the main culprit, promising that nothing would happen to her. And the main culprits of scrapping and plunderers of the country's defense are still not only at large, but also at high positions. We, ordinary citizens, are shocked by the billions (in rubles) amounts of embezzlement of citizen Vasilyeva. But this is a ringing trifle compared to the actual damage caused by defense and security.

Serdyukov and Kᴼ destroyed military science as a system, seriously weakened military intelligence, destroyed military education. Things reached the point that in 2009, the Russian Defense Ministry refused to accept foreign military personnel for training because military translators were removed from the military education system, and the Russian language departments were disbanded. And the disbanding of military districts, armies, divisions and the transition to the brigade system - is this not a rejection of the military protection of the state and its territory? A brigade can defend one or two villages, but not a country. The command and control system was broken. It got to the point that the General Staff began to manage individual brigades. In August, 2008, when Georgia attacked not only South Ossetia, but also Russian peacekeepers (that is, Russia), for almost a day there was no one to make a decision and order the troops to repel the aggression. And if Georgia attacked along with Estonia, would we be able to repel aggression on two fronts?

And the replacement of the logistics support of hostilities with small firms and cafes? And what about the idiotic cuts in half of the number of officers, the liquidation of the institute of ensigns and warrant officers, the replacement of military personnel by military arsenals, military registration offices with civilians? And the same "Mistral", lobbied Medvedev and Serdyukov, and absolutely useless for combat missions of the fleet? These are not billions of rubles, but billions of discarded euros. So all this is not an accident, not the whim of furniture storekeeper Serdyukov, but a deliberate policy of the supreme leadership. And the Security Council, the State Duma, the Federation Council, the government, military counterintelligence, the Audit Chamber covered the organized rout of the armed forces and the military industrial complex. Only military-public organizations, including Vladimir Vasilievich Kvachkov and the Military Prosecutor's Office, headed by Sergey Fridinsky, actively fought against the looting of the armed forces. The chief military prosecutor made more than a hundred submissions to the Minister of Defense, knocking on all the responsible state structures, initiated criminal cases, but all was in vain: the crime of officials, deputies, generals traitors and merchants was stronger than armor.

And the fact that, having become president again, V.V. Putin allocated more than 20 trillion rubles for military needs, firstly, an awareness of the real military threat, and secondly, an attempt to plug the gap that was formed as a result of the activities of Medvedev, Serdyukov, Makarov. Today, the former organizational and staff structures in the armed forces, the same divisions, are being restored. But the division is not only personnel, but also expensive equipment, thousands of units. So they need to be purchased. So the billions of rubles incriminated to Vasilyeva are merely a disguise of the real damage to the country's defense.

V.C. Leonid Grigorievich, then why did Serdyukov and Makarov find themselves out of prosecution? Makarov, it seems, was not even involved as a witness in the case.
L.I. Makarov got his: for neglecting the interests of the Fatherland, silence and cheating became the Hero of Russia, he received a huge pension, yes, apparently, something else.

But Serdyukov cannot be judged without setting several dozen high-ranking officials in the dock. Imagine how Padva’s lawyer, for example, will shield Serdyukov. First: "He is not a professional; in military affairs he does not understand anything, he could not be appointed to the post of Minister of Defense." Those. blame the one who appointed. Second: “After all, Serdyukov did not make decisions on the implementation of certain reforms, he only proposed them, by virtue of his own, purely trading, knowledge and experience. These proposals were considered at meetings of the Security Council, committees of the Federal Assembly, approved by the government, where the ex-minister of defense S. Ivanov was the deputy prime minister in charge of defense matters. So Serdyukov is not guilty of anything, completely different officials are to blame. ” Third: “There were generals and officers around the Minister Serdyukov, the Defense Ministry Board, who also applauded all the innovations of my client,” the lawyer would say.

And, of course, Serdyukov is pretending to be a lamb, so injured by the young, which negligent girls have fingered around. Who to plant? No, because there is no Stalin friend. Such is the nature of big crime and big betrayal.

V.C. The sad picture you painted. But nevertheless why Vladimir Vladimirovich before leaving a post of the president appointed the furniture vendor to a post of the Minister of Defense? We admit that in Soviet times, furniture storemakers in the face of shortages were a priori bribe takers, though not all, but many. And after the conscious destruction of the USSR, Serdyukov continued the path of a businessman away from furniture.
L.I. In 2012, in a personal meeting with V.V. Putin, I asked him the same question. I did not get a clear answer, so we can only build assumptions. My version is as follows: leaving temporarily from the post of the president of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Vladimirovich insured himself with a “safety cushion” by proposing a weak successor who would have to work as a senior legal advisor at a large enterprise or on a collective farm to become the head of the legal department. For the people to wait for Putin to return as soon as possible, because by definition Medvedev was not ready to lead the country. Well, so that the army didn’t bump under a strong defense minister and didn’t refuse to support the candidacy of the returned Putin, he was appointed to the post as head of staff. With this tandem of two completely incompetent people - the “commander in chief” and the minister of defense — the army will unequivocally support Putin. What happened. In addition, Putin, being prime minister, was very indirectly responsible for the state of defense. But Vladimir Vladimirovich, apparently, had no idea that in four years such a huge damage would be inflicted on the defense and the geopolitical situation would be aggravated ...

V.C. Sorry, I interrupt you, Leonid G.. After Serdyukov was appointed Minister of Defense, you said in an interview that Putin could have appointed his Labrador to this position ...
L.I. Yes, something is really said. There was an insult for the humiliation of the army, which I gave more than forty years, which went on a mission of liberation to Paris, Berlin, Manchuria, and in general covered its banners with eternal glory. And it was always led by worthy people, except perhaps Trotsky. But now I would have refused my conclusions - a Labrador would not bring so much trouble to the army and the country as Serdyukov.

V.C. Leonid G., and what happened during the final meeting of the Krasnopresnensky court, when the judge ignored the position of the state prosecution (8 years of probation) and appointed 5 years of real life? Is this the courage and objectivity of the judge, or has politics intervened here?
L.I. As for the General Prosecutor’s Office, it’s not for the first time that it comes up with “humane flexibility” in high-profile cases, and in this case the state prosecution ignored the real scale of the crime committed by a group of officials and tries to shield them. But regarding the judge, let's thank this courageous woman and let us not guess whether she showed independence, bearing in mind the independence of the court, or someone from above decided to make a gift to war and military veterans on the eve of Victory's 70 anniversary, demanding to give a real term Vasilyeva. And this is possible in our country. Or maybe Vasilyeva herself was fed up with PR and arrogance by her “colleagues”. After all, she behaved too provocatively and mocked the entire law enforcement system.
V.C. Hence, there is hope that at least some particle of justice will triumph, and Vasilyeva will serve a real term.
L.I. I would like that too. But, apparently, we have not grown to an independent court, to the level of a fair social and state system. Therefore, the continuation of this political and psychological performance may be very likely. Vasilyeva will sit for several months, and then either the appeal will work and she will be released, with apologies and payment of compensation, or they will be released on parole, including in time her stay under arrest in personal apartments. And this will be another spit in the face of all honest people of Russia, an insult to the military community, the personnel of the Armed Forces. This will be another mockery of professional investigators who honestly do their hard work of collecting evidence. The liberal crime of which we spoke above will triumph and demonstrate its power over Russia. Because the main culprits from fair retribution are gone. God forbid that I was mistaken ...

V.C. The team of "Soviet Russia" will also believe in a fair retribution to criminals, destroying the country's defense. Thank you, Leonid G., for a frank and honest conversation.

    The captain is responsible for everything that happens on the ship, and in the army, the Supreme Commander, who, among other things, appoints the Minister of Defense. When our "supreme" says - "But I did not know ..." - to put it mildly, it causes bewilderment. am Moreover, attempts to “turn the arrows” to Medvedev, as an independent, capable, something to solve the figure nothing but a grin cause.

              The change of prime minister and government, in general, has matured long ago. But all this is particular. And since the general gave the interview to the newspaper Sovetskaya Rossiya, then everything must be done so that not only the newspaper is Soviet, but all of Russia becomes Soviet Russia. It’s time, the country and people have been waiting for change. Those changes that will restore confidence in the future.

          I have long matured the conviction that the country is controlled by organized crime groups with a godfather at the head. And everything that happens positive in the country is caused only by the animal fear of this godfather not to share the fate of Milosevic, Saddam, Gaddafi, etc.
          And we are successfully hanging noodles about staples and the like, about getting up from our knees. I hope that a worthy candidate for the role of modern Stalin will appear in the country for the presidential election, able to feed the team, outline clear tasks and ways for their implementation before the country. And do it by fulfilling campaign promises.

            Well, if they remembered Joseph Vissarionovich, then you can’t do without “getting up from your knees”. So the "godfather" is not so wrong. As for the "organized crime group", which runs the country, tell me, where is not the organized crime group? Maybe in the USA, or somewhere in Europe, or in another corner? Who to take an example from? Even the classics said that the state is an apparatus of coercion (or oppression, but the meaning does not change from this). From Rome to the present day, the principles of government are the same everywhere.

        Of course everyone knew ... and they are still cunning ..
        V.Ch. But still, why did Vladimir Vladimirovich appoint a furniture salesman to the post of Minister of Defense before resigning as president?

        L.I. In 2012, at a personal meeting with V.V. By Putin I asked him the same question. I didn’t get a clear answer ...

        And they will never tell us openly that the reason for appointing Serdyukov is the same - we needed a manager who lived without shame ... conscience and not burdened with concepts like "PATRIOTISM.!" After all, the stage of "wild capitalism - the stage of accumulation of initial capital due to the shameless robbery of the people!"
        OFFICERS OF THE OLD Army, which make up the main bone and were brought up on the slogan - EVERYTHING THAT CREATED BY THE PEOPLE SHOULD BE SECURELY PROTECTED! Well, they couldn’t lead the troops under the new slogans "GO FORWARD! FORBES magazine ...) !!! " So they put a manager without a complex, but a son-in-law with a close human GDP. And control was transferred to the new Commander-in-Chief ... a "friend" and an admirer of overseas values! This is not a royal matter ... to control someone ... the boyar appointed ... let him work, do not meddle in his diocese ... there is nothing to SHOW him. Feeling this permissiveness ... Serdyukov defeated the army and navy ... decent professional personnel - dispersed ... and went, using lack of control, to fulfill his personal task - to earn capital ...
        But he fulfilled his main task assigned to him by BIG CAPITAL ... AND WHO SAME SERDYUKOV FOR THIS ... WILL BE JUDGED ???

          Bggg ... officers of the old army and Soviet hardening for several years sold the Pacific Fleet. After them, "Photius Krylova" barely managed to be returned back.

          What about lead troops - 08.08.08 showed well how these officers are leading troops. The commander of the 58th army entered the ambush in a convoy ... it’s good that they were Georgians. GPP, security, a march according to the charter, the experience of two Chechen - no, not heard.

    The euphoria from the annexation of Crimea will pass soon, many will understand why this was done, and then we will see the true face of Mr. Putin. For 20 years, Serdyukov’s reforms have been going on in education, healthcare and in all spheres in general. And when we understand what's what, what are we going to do, huh? It’s impossible to Maidan! At least that’s how they have been trying to convince us for the last year and a half on the example of Ukraine and what happened to it after the revolution ...

    I remember when I lived in the USSR, I was proud of my country and was confident in the future. After the annexation of the Crimea, my hope for a reassurance of Russia was flooded, and there is such a spit in my soul with this defense service. Now it became clear who steers in our country. And that most likely Russia has no time to rise from its knees.

      It is clear who steers in the country in the 90s, when everyone began to plunder the country, who are not too lazy. They are now in legal power. But do not be so pessimistic about the fate of Russia. We will rise from our knees, only the whole question is at what price. The farther, the higher the price becomes. It is a pity that many still do not understand this, recalling the Gorbachev era of lines and coupons in the USSR. The discrediting of the most just system in the world began precisely with the organization in the country of the deficit of everything and with the psychological treatment of people by the fact that life is better in the West. Better than in the USSR, no people in the world have ever lived. Those who betrayed the Motherland, wiped their feet on the people and sitting on the hump of the people are fattening, squandering the people's good, spitting on us as if in suckers whom they had so coolly bred.

    "Because the main culprits of fair retribution are gone. God forbid that I make a mistake ..."

    Unfortunately, Comrade was not mistaken. Ivashov.

    The class solidarity of high-ranking thieves is stronger than the laws. The entire law enforcement system and security agencies are focused on eliminating threats to their existence in order to ensure the continuation of a banquet to rob the country.

    Therefore, Serdyukov (now with a concubine) is free, and Kvachkov is in prison.

    And changes without changing the ruling layer can be expected only from bad to worse.

      “Yes, it’s not worth gratitude,” comrade Ivashov answered modestly and quickly wound up so that he would not be asked uncomfortable questions in the light of this interview. Well, in particular, he could be asked how the Leader who returned and "realized the depth of the fall" reacted to the dismissal of the case against the main person involved. Something I do not remember that he, as a great patriot of the Fatherland, joined his voice to the masses who were outraged. Either we are all wrong patriots, or something needs to be done in the conservatory. As for Ivashov, principle must be fully demonstrated. Or keep quiet, otherwise it is uncomfortable.

    He appointed the stool the minister of defense of the gdp in 2007, reassigned Medvedev in 2008 and reassigned the gdp in 2012, this is the glorious path of the stool in the field of the minister. One person runs the show and ascribes to others his actions is not worth it, everyone else, so on the “sing-along and under the dance”, the person created for a narrow circle of people COMMUNISM in the economic, political, criminal procedural spheres, while not the best people, but You can tell fairy tales about their professionalism. So we have sanctions, the collapse of the ruble, inflation, unemployment, 23 million citizens below the poverty line, etc., STALIN- GDP amounted to 15-30 %% per year during the period of industrialization, seven years after the Great Patriotic War, pre-war GDP was restored , and in 1947 the cards were canceled, there is a difference, then who is GREAT and who is "neither there nor here."

    Returning to his third presidential term, V.V. Putin saw that Serdyukov almost defeated the army, it was not combat-ready, the defense industry did not receive an order for modern weapons and equipment, which means it was degrading along with the armed forces.


    I wonder what, before the third presidential term, Putin was the prime minister on the moon? Or is it still in Russia?
    Oh, what big doubts that Putin did not know the real situation in the army as prime minister.

    But Vladimir Vladimirovich, apparently, had no idea that in four years such enormous damage would be done to the defense and the geopolitical situation would aggravate ...

    Again, being prime minister and did not represent the current situation? wassat

    With all due respect to General Ivashov ... Or did the journalists again add something from themselves?

      And Mr. Dragon must be beyond suspicion. smile

      We need to understand: Ivashov’s is a difficult task. He needs to demonize the “furniture maker” and not touch the GDP. So Comrade Colonel General is twisting out.
      He has two ways out - if you admit that the furniture maker acted on behalf of and on behalf of Prime Minister, then you will have to give up black paint and really look at the acts of Taburetkin (because strikes against the Defense Ministry are ricocheting towards the Prime Minister). To this Ivashov can't understand.
      So one thing remains: the evil boyar ommanul the hope-sovereign, as long as he was not in power. And the good tsar-sovereign has absolutely nothing to do with it:
      In addition, Putin, as prime minister, was responsible for the state of defense very indirectly.

    Serdyukov was a direct subordinate of Putin. So do not blame everything on Medvedev and Co.
    No one answered for anything. Everyone remained, if not on beans, with their own. And the absence of punishment is a direct path to further irresponsibility and ugliness.

    Comrade officers, capitalism, however! Looking at the condescending grin of ginger Nanolis, Medved and other kinder surprises, you understand how deeply the venal abomination has seized all the power in the country. They are already openly mocking people. 28 million officially live below the poverty line!
    Mongrels such as kasyanovs, kudrins, butlers and all kinds of silkworms from rainy ears matzo sell us wholesale and retail everywhere and everywhere. Abomination and desolation!

    Like such a promise. And Putin was not in the affairs of a bear? And was not the prime minister?
    If you already hinted then tell the truth in full. That the whole top has been sawing the country all these years.
    I am not against Putin, but he must keep the answer. And do not get out smart phrases like a bear.

      Ivashov never praised power. You can find on the Internet his interviews of different years, where he criticizes and scolds the government for its criminal actions to weaken the country.

    So it turns out the old interview. May. I didn’t read that right away. What is interesting to say the general is now when she was released. We need to take an interview again.

    Thanks for the truth, Comrade General! Only when the AUTHORITY will tell honestly about this to the people? Or wait as in a joke: when he dies, then will we find out?

    You read this and you don’t believe your eyes, this is a feast during the plague, Sodom and Gomorrah look next to this, innocent jokes. It turns out in general, not a single honest one? Even the most important? So it turns out that he initiated the whole process to return then "all in white"? And the concern now is not about us (the people) of our relatives, and not about the Motherland, it’s just scary to be in Gaddafi’s place. And who to believe then? You cannot live without faith, faith must always exist! It seems that no one will conquer Russia, they will simply sell it.

      Why not believe it, the liberal press, all in the same subject, with the same words, with the same concern. Foreign, also sucks, just like on command. And then strange "patriots" join in. Which language turns to compare the release of the stealing aunt with the return of the Crimea. Probably Putin specifically conducted the operation "Crimea", which would then quietly release Vasilyeva .... what absurdity can you agree on? (Ukrainian politicians immediately come to mind)

      Believe, dear, it is necessary in God. But in life it is necessary to apply the Second Law of Thermodynamics, who benefits.

    How can the president take care of the people and state entrusted to him (officials) and his rating? And to order officials to make the information coming to him evoke sensations: everything is fine, everything is fine. What do they successfully do. And how the people feel at the same time, it’s the twenty-fifth case for officials and the president. President domestic policy with a - sign. President rating is supported by adm. resource and zomboyaschikom.

    Serdyukov is bad, Evgenia Vasilyeva ...
    Can I ask you a question?

    Polite people and the real army where did they come from?

    Maybe this is the answer?

    Ivashov L.G. This is not a judicial investigation process, but a political and psychological performance ...

    And left Serdyukov as Minister of Defense. Why would you? Or being the prime minister, our awesome strategist temporarily suffered from cretinism and did not see the art of stools, and then he suddenly regained his sight? It seems to me, if you hadn’t put a horn to your wife with this sow, Vasilyeva, Serdyukov, I would be a minister now.

      They won’t do it. And in general, it’s not individual ministers, but how the Defense Ministry’s task is formulated. Then, a person is found under this task. Serdyukov was also appointed.

    Ivashov is right. Only very gently does he outline the circle of those guilty of betraying the country. I won’t write anything else, everything is extremely unprintable.
