Media: One day of exercises of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation is much more expensive than one "combat" day in Syria

51
The military operation in Syria fits into the budget of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and does not require additional injections, reports Look with reference to "Izvestia".




“One day of operation in Syria costs significantly less than a day of exercises of the Ministry of Defense. The military operation in Syria does not affect the budget increase in any way. Exercises are often much more expensive. All expenses for the military operation were included in the final budget for 2016 year and will remain at the same level ”,
told a newspaper source in government.

The military department confirmed this information, explaining that in order to avoid additional costs, it was decided to cancel part of the exercises previously planned for 2016.

“Military action against a terrorist organization in Syria is a reality, not a doctrine. But in order to avoid additional costs, it was decided to exclude some military exercises planned next year, ”said a source in the Defense Ministry.

“If the plane is located on Russian territory, then it, too, needs to be serviced and filled. The only thing that is added in this case to all other expenses for the maintenance of the VKS is ammunition. But they again have their expiration date, and secondly, they are created for the war. VKS for this purpose exist to fight, they can either simply recoup or not recoup the money spent on their maintenance, ”said Alexander Khramchikhin, deputy director of the Institute for Political and Military Analysis. - The most costly armed forces are those on whom they save, as the example of Ukraine taught us. I think that the current expenditures on military operations do not go beyond the limits of the already approved expenditures of the Ministry of Defense. And in any case, the war can not be saved, otherwise the subsequent costs will be even more. "

According to the newspaper, in 2016, the budget expenditures on national defense will increase by 0,8% and amount to 3,145 trillion. rubles (in 2015, 3,1 trillion was allocated), or 4% of GDP.

      The bourgeoisie has already calculated that one day of the operation in Syria costs $ 3 million to Russia.
      they forget how many armed conflicts were unleashed by the NATO alliance and how much does it cost their taxpayers.

      For the United States, it is almost always profitable. I will not say for us, because usually they climbed into the war with us and had to fight on our territory, losing infrastructure and enterprises. But I think you can believe the Russian Defense Ministry. Perhaps not cheaper, but comparable.

        Only for one reason: wars did not go and do not go on THEIR territory ... If the infrastructure collapsed, the civilian population died - there would be one loss, and only then they (their rulers) would probably have thought that wars bring not only profit, but, mainly - loss and loss ...

      You are absolutely right, it can be profitable to fight. And there’s nothing funny. You just need to see the prospect of obtaining benefits (not only financial) in case of victory in the war. I think that Russia, having demonstrated its strength and determination beyond the borders of its territory, has already greatly increased its international prestige, which will inevitably improve its foreign economic attractiveness. For example, look at the arms trade. An interesting source of state revenue. is not it? Two! a contract for the sale of the SU-35, S-300 to Iran and all this against the backdrop of the success of the VKS-coincidence? I don’t think so.

      And here you are right. War is the same investment, but with a longer payback period. The main thing is that in the absence of a desire to actively fight, there will be no one to analyze the profitability of their actions (inaction). Dead shame will not feel. And the winner gets the main bonus - life and sovereignty.

Actually, for the sake of this war, they almost always unleashed, even if the reason at first glance was different, but still the reason is always just an excuse! All wars have always been unleashed by the CAPITALISTS !!! because military intervention is essentially the same as economic expansion only much faster and more uncompromising!

    I don’t know how much money is spent on one day of training in Russia, but one day of operation in Syria, taking into account all expenses, costs from $ 2,4 million to 2,7 million euros.
    The author of the article is off topic or is clearly underestimating the costs, but for what purpose?
    It is clear that the costs are high, but "we help out the holy cause of a friend from trouble" and why the people should hang noodles on their ears is not entirely clear.

    "The most expensive armed forces are those that save on"...

    Briefly and succinctly ... Both the exercises and military operations in Syria are a constant study and acquisition of combat experience for the sole purpose of protecting our (not oligarchs !!!) country ...

    No crisis and sanctions should affect the state’s defense, training and equipment of its armed forces ...

    Under this brand (spending on social programs, education, medicine), you can generally do nothing globally significant for the country. And sit in the category of third-rate countries.

    The oligarchs would save less in their own pockets, more would be a social program. They would steal less, more would be a pension. In the USSR, everything that was mined or created was the property of the state and was not put aside in the pockets of thieves. Therefore, medicine, and education, and apartments were free. And the army in the USSR was the largest and most advanced in the world. Social did not interfere.

    Oh really?
    The names of the liberals (Ulyukaev? Medvedev?) In the government who want to increase their pensions, but they have scooped up pension savings and now they sleep and see how to raise their retirement age (then not every bird will reach the middle of the Dnieper).
    Or maybe M. Prokhorov wants to raise pensions, who, at the "urgent requests of workers' collectives," dreamed of a 60-hour work week?
    Let me remind you that it was DAMA who called to fight terrorism not in Russia, but in "his lair", without calculating the expected confrontation with "partners". Has ceased to be a liberal?)))
    What caused the death of our servicemen - the unexpectedly sneaky Regge Perdogan, or the fact that they went on combat missions without air-to-air missiles (there were "partners" all around), and then without any escort?
    It’s good that a combat break-in of our air forces and armaments is taking place (this is the only plus, the rest is negative), and, in my opinion, it’s obvious that B. Assad’s regime cannot be saved in its current form, we should expect a transformation according to the Lebanese model (not Libyan!), Under the control of Russia - an acceptable option to calm the hating Alawites Sunni majority.
    Given the leading role of Russia in this transformation, it is advisable to receive (from the grateful Syrian people) a sea and air base for an indefinite lease (for a nominal fee) to our aircraft, a shelf for the development of hydrocarbons to our fat cats ... why bother dreaming) )))

    What fits into the exercise budget is unlikely.
    For example, more than 100 cruise missiles were launched.
    Usually, 5-10 pieces are checked during exercises per year.
    And expensive missiles must be quickly compensated for by the production of new ones.
    Again, Russia organized the Syrian Express:
    rented a dozen ships to plant ammunition, kerosene, etc.

    But another thing is that combat practice is much more useful than exercises. Check against
    real enemy technology, running-in, tactics of application tactics, general management.
    There is no doubt about it.
