Military Review

The appointment of General Korobov says a lot about priorities in the activities of the GRU.

The appointment of General Korobov says a lot about priorities in the activities of the GRU.The fact that almost a month passed between the death of Igor Sergun and the appointment of the head of the GRU, Igor Korobov, suggests that the country's leadership had to decide on priorities. Possible Sergun changers have their strengths. The choice in favor of General Korobov clearly illustrates the role that the GRU assigns to national security.


The appointment of the head of the GRU (as, indeed, the SVR) is always a significant event. But it has little to do with purely political circumstances and the “struggle of the clans”, which they began to search immediately after the sudden death of General Igor Sergun. Intelligence - and military, and "civil" - the work of technical, routine, the priorities in it are in no way connected with internal politics or change of government. Here continuity and professionalism are important, which does not negate, of course, the need for periodic metered reforms.

Most of all, intelligence officials fear precisely “political” decisions - the unexpected appointment to leadership positions of people who are not familiar with the specifics of work. Experience and история suggest that such steps in difficult historical periods led to curiosities at best, and failures at worst. A classic example is the situation around the GRU during the period of perestroika and immediately after the collapse of the USSR. Both worthy army generals who headed the GRU in the “Gorbachev period” (after the resignation of the living legend Peter Ivashutin in 1987) did not have anything to do with intelligence. One of them was remembered as a “masquerade”: he sincerely believed that the officers of the General Staff should go to work in uniform and issued a corresponding order. As a result, the staff of the central office came to the old building of the GRU on Khoroshevskoe highway in uniform, and in their offices they were already dressed in costumes. Funny Perhaps. But you have to understand that anyone could be placed opposite the checkpoint and rewrite the title of incoming and branch of troops. Including, therefore, even biased rumors about the arrival of a “Varyag” in the GRU (no matter where it comes from — from the FSO or from “competitors”) are perceived so painfully.

Preserving continuity in intelligence is not a corporate whim and not a desire to isolate oneself from "outsiders." In the end, the GRU does not take "from the student's bench," as in the Soviet time in the KGB, people from various military branches work there, if we talk about intelligence and the central apparatus. Although the military diplomatic academy is a specialized educational institution, they already get there with a certain general military experience, so that it can be considered something of a “second education”.

By the way, in military intelligence, people have long been concerned about the lack of specialized educational institutions that could be targeted by talented young people. We are talking about the training of specialists for strategic agent and intelligence-operational intelligence, and not special forces. In the past ten years, the GRU is usually talked about in relation to special-purpose units, which was greatly facilitated by the flourishing of serial cinema. But special forces are only a small part of the work of the GRU. Combined arms officers are trained at the Novosibirsk Higher Military Command School, but, again, this applies only to special forces and field intelligence. And there was no platform for special training for young people. The disbanding of the Military Institute of Foreign Languages ​​in 1993 year exacerbated the situation with personnel and vocational training.

With all this, the candidacy of the chief of military intelligence demonstrates the vector in which intelligence will develop, as well as the priorities of the current moment. All the heads of the GRU from 1997, according to their professional specialization, clearly corresponded to the tasks that were then considered paramount or seemed so to the Minister of Defense. But after the sudden death of General Igor Sergun, taking into account the principle of interdepartmental continuity, the choice of candidates for the post of the head of the GRU turned out to be small. The commander-in-chief, the minister of defense and the chief of the general staff were to be chosen from among the four acting deputy directors of the department. Perhaps this was the predetermined monthly time lag: Igor Sergun died on January 3, and the new head of the GRU was appointed only on February 2. On the other hand, in such an environment, the choice made in the end turned out to be particularly revealing.

For example, General Sergey Gizunov, winner of the Russian government’s award in science and technology for 2009, was considered as one of the candidates. Before moving to the headquarters of the GRU, he supervised 85, the main center of the special service, he was 26165, the building complex at the beginning of Komsomolsky Avenue in Moscow. His employees didn’t see the automaton, but in three minutes they will be able to decipher any code and encrypt it back, without interrupting writing a doctoral dissertation on quantum physics. Gizunov is more a scientist than a scout. His scientific works are devoted to topics that an ordinary person is not able to say or say. For example, “Pseudo-somatoids generated by matroids” or “Optimal linear codes and a critical problem for matroids”. Do not ask what it is and why matroids have pseudo-somatoids generated by their self-consciousness. Just believe that all this is directly related to cryptography and the construction of the so-called greedy algorithms used for decryption.

It’s not even the case that a man with his heart for theoretical algebra would plan to transfer troops, use the concept of "polite people" or coordinate the activities of illegal residency across distant lands. This is quite possible if you correctly place the relevant specialists to the positions of deputies. But scientific activity, cryptography and mathematical planning are not the main priority of the GRU now. With all due respect to General Gizunov and his extraordinary mind, cryptography and intelligence science are just “servants” to ensure operational activities.

Another potential candidate is General Vyacheslav Kondrashov, Doctor of Historical Sciences, author of the fundamental work Military Intelligence in World War II. Last year, he co-authored a report on US European missile defense and NATO (together with the then Chief of the General Staff’s operational administration, General Andrei Tretiak) and spoke at the State Duma on the missile potential of the countries of the Near and Middle East, which, in particular, detailed characteristics of Iran’s missile potential. Based on Kondrashov’s data, the negotiating position of the Russian Federation regarding the deployment of American missile defense systems in Europe was formed, since these data demonstrated Iran’s inability even to theoretically threaten any objects in the area in which the United States intended to deploy its missile defense system, citing the “Iranian threat ". There is some reason to believe that General Kondrashov was in charge of preparing similar reports assessing North Korea’s missile potential. This paper was called “The tactical and technical characteristics of armaments in the countries of the Near and Middle East, including Iran, and North Korea, ballistic missiles and opportunities for their improvement”, and was read at a scientific-practical conference at the Military Academy of the General Staff .

A number of sources indicate that it was General Kondrashov who was at the end of 2013 of the year in Egypt when, after the freezing of military cooperation programs by Obama, Cairo first turned to Russia for help in rearming the army. Then it was about the supply of missile weapons, almost "Topol" that overly excited Israel, which took unprecedented measures to thwart a possible deal. More realistic, however, would be the assumption that it was still not about “Topol”, but about “Iskander” in their export performance (their range is noticeably smaller than that of the missile systems entering the Russian army). Behind this story, apparently, Saudi Arabia and now the disgraced prince Bandar stood, who intended to arm Egypt, as it were, with neutral missiles capable of hitting Iran’s territory. According to Arab sources, it was General Kondrashov’s report that could change President Putin’s view of a rocket deal with Egypt. But here we must make a reservation that it would be unprofessional to unconditionally trust Arab sources to any degree of verification. In their performance, any story turns into "A Thousand and One Nights."

In other words, General Kondrashov is a professional in the field of missile weapons, assessing missile threats and strategic military capabilities, and has outstanding literary talents (the combination of humanitarian inclinations and technical knowledge in strategic intelligence is expensive). In the current situation, this person is in his place, perfectly corresponding to the level of tasks that are set for him. However, this is only a part of the tasks now facing the GRU, and transferring the experience of the profile professional to the entire overloaded colossus, which, no matter how it is reduced, still does not fit into the barn, apparently, the time has not come yet.

The third potential candidate for the post of head of the GRU was considered the most famous media, albeit with reservations. General Igor Lelin was remembered as a colonel when, in 2000, he worked as a military attache at the Russian embassy in Tallinn. The officially accredited diplomat cannot avoid publicity, and Lelin and his deputy, naval attache Igor Shitov, took part in laying wreaths at a memorial to Soviet soldiers-liberators, when he was still standing on Tõnismägi Square and was not transferred to the cemetery. After graduating from the mission abroad, Igor Lelin continued his service not in the GRU, but in the Personnel Department of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, including in charge of military schools. And there is reason to believe that the Estonian business trip could be interrupted due to circumstances beyond the control of Lelin, and his continued participation in operational intelligence was called into question due to "exposure to light."

In theory, this circumstance did not prevent him from applying for the post of head of the GRU. In the end, no one particularly concealed exactly which diplomatic posts were reserved for intelligence officers (no one is surprised by the incorrectly large number of cultural attachés in the US embassy in Moscow). But the experience in agent-intelligence reconnaissance (and the residency activities in countries of the non-exploratory type, such as Estonia) can also be attributed to one significant flaw. As a rule, such people lack the experience of strategic thinking and global assessment of information. In especially critical cases, a peculiar form of “attachment” to the region in which the employee has worked for a long time is developed, as a result of which local information begins to seem something extremely important, objectivity in evaluation is lost, the overall picture is distorted, despite the fact that historically “small” residency "still prevails work on the" main enemy ", that is, the United States.

No one argues that this fully applies to General Lelin. But this is a well-known professional deformation, which is more in intelligence than in any other profession, with the exception of theater. But it was the ability to evaluate strategic information, structure the general flow, and choose from it the most essential, determined the current choice of the new head of the GRU in favor of General Igor Korobov. Less is known about his record of service than the others, but for most of his career he was directly involved with strategic intelligence and oversaw this area as first deputy head of department.

In modern GRU, strategic intelligence is structurally divided between territorial departments and a special Directorate of strategic doctrines and armaments. Given the specificity of the GRU, in the processing of strategic data, more attention is paid there to the military aspects, and not to politics. But in the modern world, the role of theoretical constructions has grown significantly, primarily in the strategic military planning. The armies are now developing not linearly, simply increasing quantitatively and improving their weapons, but according to theoretically built strategies. As a result, such types of armaments that previously had not been given special importance may receive an unexpected development. Another example is the emergence of a military-political crisis in a previously stable region. To assess such threats, a new approach to the collection, and most importantly, to the processing and evaluation of operational data that pretend to be “strategic” is required. The lack of such a strategic analysis system suffered from the late Soviet KGB, and even the specially created management there with General Leonov did not change the situation, but only aggravated the problem, since Leonov and the company were too carried away with conspiracy.
Now the need for a strategic assessment of information is greater than ever in the history of the Russian Federation. The choice of General Korobov for the post of head of the GRU could have been predetermined by just such a deal and the attendant calculations in the leadership of the country and the army. And this, in turn, forms a new vector for the development of military intelligence, including in terms of internal reforms and recruitment. No politics. Only pragmatist.

              Such an interesting, clear article!
              I hope, I believe that General Korobov is the one who is needed.

          Intelligence — military and civilian — is technical, routine work; its priorities are in no way connected with domestic politics or a change of government.

          In fact, he has a senior age friend S. Ivanov. He graduated from the translation department of the philological faculty of the Leningrad State University and the military department under him (1975), the highest courses of the KGB of the USSR in Minsk (1976), the Red Banner Institute of the KGB of the USSR (1981).

          In 1974 he was sent to study English at Ealing Technical College (Great Britain) [3].

          In 1975 he was accepted to the service in the KGB of the USSR. In 1976-1977, he was an employee of the 1st (personnel) department of the KGB Directorate for Leningrad and the Leningrad Region, where he worked in the same unit as the future President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin. [4]

          He worked until 1985 in a residency in Finland, and then in Kenya [3] (where, in his own words, was transferred due to his disclosure in Europe by Oleg Gordievsky) [5].

          In 1991-1998 he continued to work in the Foreign Intelligence Service of Russia. He served in intelligence as First Deputy Director of the European Department of the Foreign Intelligence Service of Russia [3].

    The appointment of General Korobov says a lot about priorities in the activities of the GRU.


    Korobov was one of the four deputy chiefs of the GRU. He was in charge of strategic intelligence. That is, he was the curator of all foreign residencies of the GRU. So his appointment means that the main focus is on over-strengthening foreign activities.

      Do not say absurdities. Bet on intelligence work done a very long time agoinstead of doing now. Since Korobov oversaw a foreign residency and did not say anything about his past work, it means that he himself worked once and somewhere in mining. For obvious reasons, when and where we will not know.
      When appointing the head of operational services, they must take into account whether the candidate has operational experience. The specificity in this direction is too subtle, and the applicant is not familiar with these subtleties, when deciding in a difficult situation, and not simple situations, there is a lot of secret operations firewood breaks. respectfully hi

    1. There is no special forces in the GRU for a long time. It is transferred to the Ground Forces.
    2. The reorientation of the GRU purely on Strategic Intelligence, suggests that this service will lose its distinctive feature, will become a double in essence of the SVR, albeit with its own specifics.
    3. Deep intelligence, sabotage, sabotage, the elimination of key figures, the organization of uprisings, the organization of guerrilla groups, psychological warfare has not been canceled. Who will deal with this in the current realities? MTR ???

      These Secrets are hidden in semantic aspects. You can openly talk about information where the line with misinformation is difficult to determine. Because the semantic foundations remain unclear. Moreover, nothing new has been said. Names and persons change, but the essence of their work and priorities remain unchanged. One thing is important to see that Russia again wants to be a mighty power for a long time.

    Cryptography and science in intelligence are just “handmaidens” for operational activities. It’s not even that a person lying with his heart in theoretical algebra and his employees didn’t see the machine, but they can decrypt any code and encrypt it in three minutes. But it was the ability to evaluate strategic information, structure the general flow and choose from it the most significant that determined the current choice of the head of the GRU. Now the need for a strategic assessment of information is greater than ever in the history of the Russian Federation.

    Well? What can we say about this - nothing. I have no doubt at all in the professional assessment of the choice of a worthy candidate for such a high and responsible position. I read the entire article, which is not typical for me, and did not understand anything. I do not understand why this whole "subject"? Why is this story for readers of Military Review? As I understand it, those present here have little understanding in foreign intelligence. And the question arises - who can speak professionally on this issue? - no one. Plus, only because there are such generals in the Russian army, and this reassures me somewhat. love

    As one wise man said that a scout has a professional disease, this is hemorrhoids. Therefore, if earlier the priority was obtaining information, now this priority has been replaced by the need to analyze large volumes of data. Foreign intelligence is precisely what differs in that it explores all aspects and factors that affect the changing situations at the level of states and countries. Therefore, the matroid is the local information space that interacts with other similar system structures. Only here, linear methods can not do here. Since the matroid is a dynamically transformable structure according to its own algorithms, the methods must be complex, which means linearity is only a special case. The most interesting . that everyone says so meaningfully about cryptography. and nevertheless, they cannot decipher the patterns of sequences of that number Pi, or a series of primes. The question can be posed in general somewhat differently, that the leader should be that person. which can work with the largest possible amounts of data. At the same time, he is able to see and understand all this at the energy level of analysis in order to see the potential of situations that can be calculated at different levels of perspectives.

        Information should be treated as a "raw material" that can have various potential forms of its application. Therefore, it is very easy to determine the degree of ownership and control of information by those people who add their own emotions to it in the form of subjectivity, which often leads to underestimation of many aspects of the analysis process.

        It's like a cryptographic process. Everything is veiled in its degree. Someone is looking for an answer in what is said, and someone is looking for meaning. It is sometimes difficult to understand not just what the "greedy" algorithm is, but why and how much mind it takes to be called that.

    I did not quite understand the meaning of the article. The GRU has always faced and will face various, sometimes very specific tasks. And, in my opinion, they will always choose the person who can best organize their solution. Obviously, General Korobov is better suited for this than others. So whether it is or not time will tell.

      I agree with you. In the modern world, too many players appear in the military-political arena, with different goals. Some appear at an unexpected moment, in difficult situations. This is evidenced by the relationship of the latter with the "Slavic brothers" in Eastern Europe, The flirting of the CIS leaders, vile the behavior of the Turkish leadership, this list can be more detailed. When solving foreign policy tasks, the country's leadership, apparently, has to act selectively, often change priorities when coordinating with the "partners" tasks in the interests of the country. This imposes large tasks on various institutions of such a plan of the GRU. Let's hope The Supreme Commander-in-Chief and his General Staff were not mistaken. And the new chief of the GRU will be able to use the past experience of the department and find new ones to solve Archival tasks. And the desire to find contact and mutual understanding with other departments working in this direction!

        Absolutely right! In their subjectivity, those processes that occurred in an allegedly friendly and fraternal country were underestimated. However, they developed according to their underestimated principles and at speeds that were not considered at all in the analysis, but in the physical world of development and relationships there are no trifles or there is no degree of appreciation or underestimation. Events develop and transform according to physical laws, which mathematically cannot be expressed by modern methods. In addition, HOPE is also a very subjective concept. It is necessary to work and take for research that which may seem very secondary or insignificant. But this is the technique of working with big data.

    One of the key areas of intelligence activity is the analysis of the scientific and technical potential of a potential enemy. And more than those promising opportunities that he possesses. Therefore, modern conditions are distinguished by a high degree of density of events and polarization of interests and views on certain strategic issues. This means that analysis technologies are at the forefront. Only a fool does not see and does not understand that the mathematical analysis that is applicable now is a method for analyzing low-potential physical processes. Modern highly dynamic, and most importantly, multidynamic, multidirectional high-potential processes in the achievements of real physics and social relations cannot be solved by the old technologies of mathematical analysis. And the derivation is simple on a function of a variable value of a number, any undefined sequences remain undefined and inaccurate. All such sequences are simply reduced to precise definitions on a function of a constant value of a number. Matroids, like other "newly discovered" sequences, will remain private solutions, and it is necessary to see the patterns of these particulars for a long time and master the technology of real analysis. In my opinion, many people do not understand what mathematical "ANALYSIS" is.

    The concept of analysis based on the search for the optimal and correct solution is deeply erroneous. We may be satisfied with certain decisions, but events develop according to the balance or imbalance of the potential of these events. Without the conjugated binding of physical concepts and the vector of the number series expressed in the sequence itself, it is impossible to build a dynamic analysis system in which each such mat. an event would always be expressed by disposition in relation to other same mat. events. In fact, this is the definition of the analysis process in a dynamically transformable space. Any sequence is like a separate direction and a mathematical process in the aggregate space where combinations and variations of all such other other sequences are possible.

      Correct. But the principle of four "Y" it is always in action. And any decision made on the basis of deep analysis, if not feigned in reality, wasted work. Not always the time parameters of the dynamic analysis system allow you to correctly distribute in space and time.

        Absolutely right! However, any moment of the event and any chosen solution is precisely the potential transformations at the physical level. This is probably easier explained by the fact that in each drop or stream of water the internal potential of the jets cannot go beyond those levels of energy interactions so that this drop does not collapse. And if we exceed these boundaries, then the space of the droplet either combines with a more potential flow or is destructurable into small fractal energy structures.
        And then you should not forget that mathematics is an exact science and philosophical reasoning is like an element of contact of the mind on the topics discussed. And in mathematics, all these principles must be expressed through such tools that can not only be applied in the specifics of goals, but also used as an element to create artificial intelligence. Therefore, expanding knowledge in mathematics, you always need to remember about optimizing mathematical processes for the corresponding application. In addition, time can be mathematically justified as a sequence of all radial mathematical events. That is, the whole set of spatial events occurs within the framework of the analysis of one or another local space of the same spatial matroid. Therefore, we say that each object of space has its own cumulative and group TIME,

          It is thought that the modeling of certain events taking place on earth and in terrestrial space corresponds to Ennstein’s theory. And if you take the curved space. then calculus of a different orientation.

            Energy processes are complex phenomena. Moreover, developing by algorithms and directionality. In this case, the algorithms themselves contain information about the growth of the interaction potential or decrease. Therefore, Einstein's theory is also a particular and completely primitive solution in the analysis. An analysis in itself and in its essence cannot be positive or negative. We can only touch and choose one direction or another and develop in the process. Moreover, all existing geometries as a science do not consider the processes of constructing geometric transformations by algorithms and within the limits of their potential of possible real construction. Well, remember Poincare. It was he who precisely suggested that space collapses with an increase in potential at its polarization nodes. Therefore, considering the space as radial, it is understandable why the same disk of revolution first begins wave and algorithmic oscillations, and then with the boundary limits of the potential on its outer circumference, it simply develops. Although centrifugal forces continue to act. So are the phenomena when hypersonic speeds are reached. The growth of potential at the ends of a dimensional body creates a complex of known phenomena that twist and destroy this body. The growth of its potential is caused by an increase in the potential difference due to ionization, and not some empirical friction coefficients. The same phenomena are observed in the analysis of any potential events. Only the terminology is changing. Therefore, geometry, numerical dimension and physics are not separable in the formulation of analysis based not on subjective assessments, but on real processes.
            The same lightning can pierce with a single rod and flow, or it can search for optimal path to the EARTH with branched flows. Dynamic processes cannot be calculated. They can be analyzed on completely different principles.

You feel uncomfortable being or communicating with such people with your St. Petersburg courtyard spaniard mentality and education received in the gymnasium of Leningrad State University.
