Survey: almost a third of Russian citizens consider the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation the best in the world

About a third of Russians called the Russian army "the most efficient and efficient in the world," ВПК.name with reference to the VTsIOM website.


On the Army-2015 forum.

“Estimates of the combat capability of the Armed Forces of the country have changed dramatically since the time of perestroika. If in 1990, 34% believed that the Soviet army was lagging behind the best armies in the world (in 2015, 12%), and 15% said that its combat capability was very low (in 2015, 3%), today 32% they call the Russian army the most efficient and combat-ready in the world, and 49% are confident that it is among the best (1990 year - 21%), ”the All-Russian Center website says.

It is noted that “25 years ago, half of the respondents considered the expenses for the army too high, now only 35% agree with this point of view. The opposite position is held today by 52% (against 19% in 1990 d). ”

“The threat of a military attack in September 2015 of the year (48% believes that it exists) seems less real than in January (68%), but much more significant than in the 1990 year (13%). Today, 43% of respondents do not believe in the presence of an external threat (1990% in the 57 year), ”the report indicates.

According to VTsIOM, “a potential aggressor in our day is called primarily the United States (53% - and 19% in 1990), while Germany, considered the main enemy of 25 years ago (23%), is not one of the possible adversaries of the respondents.

          A strange poll ... Russians have always had a tradition of ending wars in the capital of the enemy and aggressor! Now it’s a little different (there are less losses), but we’ll take the capital of the enemy! Not right away .... But the guys in KB and MIC are working on it!
          Well, like this for example ...

          And in connection with the latest reform, it has become even better, now the commanders of the districts not only command the ground forces in the territory entrusted to them, but also all types and types of troops (with the exception of only part of the Strategic Missile Forces, aerospace defense and long-range aviation groups), for example, the commander of the western military district is subordinate The Baltic and Northern Fleet + Air Force and Air Defense + border guards of the FSB and the Ministry of Emergencies, the Black Sea Fleet and the Caspian Flotilla + Air Force and Air Defense + border guards of the FSB and the Ministry of Emergency Situations are subordinate to the commander of the Eastern District, the Pacific Fleet + Air Force and Air Defense + border guards of the FSB and Ministry of Emergencies .
          Divisions were significantly reduced in favor of brigades, as more mobile and combat-ready military units (brigades, because of their smaller numbers, are easier to deploy by air, unlike divisions).

          I beg your pardon, but the marines and troops associated with the electronic warfare are ahead of the rest, and the electronic warriors are already 20-30 ahead of the years. I know what I’m saying and “I’m responsible for the bazaar”!

        The criterion of "best" army, applicable in terms of using the army for certain types of clashes and wars! They are very different: local, large-scale, on land, at sea, with and without nuclear weapons. Here you can talk and compare a lot and for a long time. The Russian army, which is still good, is that, unlike the Yankees' propelled, bloated and clumsy-mobile, multi-functional and already modern. The wise silence of Russia on the swaggering Amer show-offs convinced everyone, even the Protokakl, that our army was weak, and that was already half the victory. Therefore, among the Euroyankees and hysteria, when Russia metered shows the surprises of its military power. They are afraid and uncomfortable, that's good! hi

    It was necessary to clarify in which regions of the country the survey was conducted and what age category participated. Something too painful is it that so few respondents spoke out in favor of our armed forces. Most likely, the people who put the United States in the first place and their henchmen generally shy nothing in the military sphere and look at pro-Western information.

      The percentage is certainly not enough, but in fairness it’s worth noting, we just started and even before the year 20 we will not replace everything (I'm talking about new equipment). The statements of high-ranking military men are glad, despite the crisis, rearmament will continue at the same pace.
      And how beautifully they took Crimea, no one even managed to jerk.

Conclusion that in Russia there remained true patriots loving their relatives, their country, their President and the Army and Navy. Thank you, very nice !!! URA URA URA !!!

    The army is reborn. Some exercises and readiness checks are worth it. I liked it in the interview when Solovyov asked the president whether participation in Syria is too expensive for us, he didn’t even find what to say, what to compare with. Then he said that we spend more on exercises. The army has only two states - it is either fighting, or preparing for war.
    I remember a book about Japanese naval aviation pilots that came across to me. In the prewar period, during training, their personnel losses were -30%! It is clear why in the beginning they “torn everyone”. And then, as a result of the protracted war, the loss of experienced pilots led to the appearance of kamikaze. They just stopped bombing ships!

        Svidomo kicked her out of the Kiev prosecutor's office. The girl could not find work in the specialty and returned to the Crimea, to her small homeland.

        There will soon be an accession. New shots were being recruited - the old ones who pissed, those who had drifted to Kiev. She came.

        Ukrainians threatened all who would indulge the "occupying" authorities with all sorts of punishments and go to the post of Prosecutor General. And she went.

There will be no war with America, for these jackals are cunning, they will find some kind of dill and will pit it. Now the main thing is not to get involved in this, we will rise then and we will show someone what to do. Let politicians scratch their tongues.

      The Turkish fleet at the Black Sea Fleet surpasses the Russian one by 14 times, and here they pompously broadcast about 2 RTOs.

      Wow. How does it turn out. And what is the Turkish fleet superior to? By the number of watercraft?
      Ushakov beat the Turks with a more impressive superiority of the Turkish fleet.
      And the fact that the armament of one Cheetah type corvette is equal to an American Burke type destroyer, a couple of which will spread the entire Turkish fleet across the Black Sea in a few minutes. don't you think?

    If people believe in this, then so it is. Russian Army, Aviation and Navy BEST IN THE WORLD! And if someone wants to verify this, then let them try to refute ... The Russian Army has always relied on the morale of the warrior. And this spirit is now present in our fighters. We have something to protect - MOTHERLAND! We are not fighting for the "grandmother" ...

    The main thing is that they did not allow bureaucrats and shit-democrats to ruin and plunder everything that was done and accumulated during the formation and formation of our Army. And our people, as before, can do the impossible.

    Yeah yeah !!! The best and most effective is still very far away! At this stage, the army is capable of limited and short-term operations. Those who serve now understand this perfectly. Since the rear service is practically absent, unfortunately :(

    It is.
    -What is what to invest in the concept of "best." Criteria mass.

    But in the total aggregate volume - yes the best.

    And any enemy was afraid to fight with our soldier !!! Is that a large number and treachery did not shun enemies !!! hi Name at least one army in the world where a soldier covered the embrasure of a bunker with a chest, a pilot rammed an enemy at the cost of his life, or sailors drowned ships preferring death to shame, and a company of beardless youths repelled thousands of militants !!! Tell me, the border guard of which country except RUSSIA, defending other people's borders in Asia, was to death !!! And this is not to mention the mass heroism of our specialists who sacrifice their lives protecting us from any scum and evil spirits !!! THERE IS NO SUCH ARMY ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD AND WILL NOT BE IN THE COMING TIME !!! And this is the ARMY OF MY RUSSIA, WHERE MY FATHER SERVED, I SERVED, AND MY CHILDREN WILL SERVE !!! soldier

    And with the latest reform, it got even better


    If you look at the local applications of military units and groups, then you can "hold out" to this concept. But the army is needed to defend the TERRITORY and, preferably, its own. Look at it, think about the survivability of distributed structures, the optimal degree of concentration of critical control nodes, etc. etc.
    And think again. Has the country's defense capability become stronger? Unfortunately, it is measured not only by army bravado. Although, where to get from her ...

      Defense capability is measured not only by the quantity and quality of new weapons, but also by the training of personnel and the modern organizational structure. The exercises have now begun to be carried out at times more than in previous years, the new organizational structure is designed to avoid hiccups when making decisions, when due to the presence of a large apparatus of the Ministry of Defense, the commander was forced to coordinate with the higher leadership and a lot of time was spent.
      I read on the same site how ship commanders in Soviet times had less authority than American commanders and were forced to coordinate important decisions with admirals.
      In the event of hostilities, the commander of the military district can now use almost everything, both the Air Force and the Navy and Air Defense, without coordination, which greatly simplifies command and control.
      The appearance of a large number of brigades instead of divisions increased the maneuverability of our Air Force (a brigade can be airmobile, a division cannot be airmobile).
      There have been significantly more new weapons; in recent years:
      72 Iskander, 76 Su-34, 48 Su-35, 160 launchers S400, until the end of next year the Black Sea Fleet will 7!!! diesel submarines. Already built 3 Borea, 1 Ash, produced electronic warfare, drones, modern cruise missiles, DBK Ball, and the Bastion. Produce Yars.
