Valery Gerasimov and Dmitry Bulgakov became Heroes of Russia

59
By his closed decree, Russian President Vladimir Putin conferred the title of Hero of Russia to several high-ranking military leaders, including Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Valery Gerasimov and Deputy Defense Minister Dmitry Bulgakov, reports TASS with reference to the newspaper "Kommersant".


Valery Gerasimov and Dmitry Bulgakov became Heroes of Russia


“The Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Army General Valery Gerasimov, and the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, Army General Dmitry Bulgakov, received high awards - the stars of Heroes of Russia. This follows from the official photographs posted on the website of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation ", - writes the agency.





"Formally, the assignment is timed to the Victory Day 9 May, but in fact these generals received the highest rank in recognition of achievements in the Russian military air operation in Syria," a source in the Ministry of Defense told Kommersant earlier.

“It is possible that Valery Vasilyevich (Gerasimov) will appear at the parade in Moscow already with the Gold Star, which is a sign of special distinction relying on awarding,” the source added.

        Especially it concerns Bulgakov. A clear and well-organized reform of the rear services of the RF Armed Forces. Complete departure from the autonomy of units with the transition to the maximum centralization of support, like the US Armed Forces. Introduction of the suction system. Organization of storage of military and operational supplies in commercial structures. Departure from the concept and principles of military medicine with the abandonment of the 1st military medical institution and the reduction of the number of hospital officers. You can continue further, touching in the same context, repair and evacuation of equipment, the mobilization component with the "accidental" explosion of 28 ammunition bases, etc.
        Conclusion: In conditions when the military doctrine of Russia provides for only "terrorism" as an enemy and the participation of the army no more than in local conflicts (together with partners and colleagues), these officers (especially Bulgakov) are really heroes, clearly and competently carrying out the government's order.

          Obviously, you need complete autonomy when the soldiers themselves wash, sheathe, go for pigs, erect dachas and dig beets and potatoes?

          That is, under the USSR in the 80s and under EBNe in the 90s, was autonomy, and was it better?

          It is amazing how the unknown krytegs discuss whether the general is worthy of a reward for organizing hostilities in a foreign country. Kryteg was forgotten to ask all sorts of questions, and without his opinion, of course, the award was handed in the wrong way.
          Everyone imagines himself a strategist, seeing the battle from the side.
          I will say something else. In recent years, the soldiers have changed a lot, and began to pay attention not to aiguillettes as thick as mooring lines, but to real combat training. They acquire a body kit for weapons (many are very expensive original Magpul, CAA, Zenit), they acquire additional. camouflage and equipment (for example, a sniper backpack with pribluds, totaling 120 pre-crisis rubles), medicine (such as CAT hemostatic tourniquets, abdominal dressings, needles for removing pneumothorax, occlusive patches, etc.).
          They really want to water the enemies! And urinate. There are many problems and mistakes committed and committed by the leadership of the country and the army in particular, but the movement forward can be traced clearly and unequivocally. And the organization of the operation in Syria aroused fair approval among the military of the whole world (and for some - outright admiration).

              Let’s sort it out. So American analysts you respect, don’t want to explain how an army with an excellent intelligence level, excellent integration of all combat units into an information support system, with a high level of intelligence and ground-based interaction will bomb either a wedding or an asshole in Afghanistan Then a barmaley’s thread accidentally bangs and let him declare it as the chief executioner, then the chief treasurer, then by someone else)). About excavators and two years of bombing in Syria, we just keep silent. What mattresses are stronger than us hundreds of times in the information war, you see, we will break the igil, and the mattresses will announce that they defeated them all. We have at least played our media space and are just starting to climb into the west.
              About the T-50. The car is new. By entering the series, they integrate wherever necessary, since the saturation of the army with radio-electronic means is only at the beginning of the path. Communication has always been a weak point of our army, but colossal work is underway and the results are already showing. What your analysts analyzed is completely true in relation to the army of 08.08.08. And this .. what’s your analysts analyzing about the interaction of intelligence and ground means?) There are ground means with Gulkin Kui) and the information exchange was at a very high level.

              In Syria, only Russian advisers and special forces are active. What kind of interaction can we talk about with ground forces? When the IL-20M aircraft detected the radio communications of the igles and missile-bombing strikes were launched in those places. Now our VKS support the Syrian army from the air when necessary.

            Sorry, but this is their job, and if they can’t cope with it, they must give way to others.
            Of course, I understand the joy of many, but the title "Hero of the Russian Federation" is not the title that is given for sitting out in the headquarters. Take the same Zhukov, Rokossovsky, Chuikov and many others, they not only sat in the headquarters but were also present on the front line.
            Of course, many angry comments will now pour on my head, but let me remind you:

            LAW OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION
            ON THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE HERO TITLE OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE SIGN OF SPECIAL DIFFERENCE - THE GOLD STAR MEDAL

            The Supreme Council of the Russian Federation decides:

            Establish the title of Hero of the Russian Federation for conferring for services to the state and people associated with accomplishment of a heroic feat.
            For the purpose of special distinction of citizens awarded the title of Hero of the Russian Federation, to establish a badge of special distinction - the Gold Star medal.
            To approve the Regulation on the title of Hero of the Russian Federation.

            And allow the last nail:
            Alexei Viktorovich Efentiev (born October 1, 1963, Bayram-Ali, TSSR) is a Soviet and Russian officer who performed combat missions in Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Nagorno-Karabakh, Chechnya and Kosovo. Lieutenant Colonel Stock. For personal courage in the successful completion of tasks, he four times presented himself with the title of Hero of the Russian Federation, but was never awarded

      Have we already won in Syria? Or are the Syrians with our help already controlling the entire territory of the country? Or did our army show in Syria an example of the high organization of modern military operations in the context of a local conflict with gangs? We don’t have a single positive answer ... We don’t even know how to close a 100 km stretch of the Syrian-Turkish border. We are waging war at the level of the 2nd World War, only with modern weapons. There is no combat integrated information system ... And what's more, the management team has no idea what it is ... So Syria has nothing to do with it, the organization of modern military operations is zero there. So the uncles were given heroes for the Holiday, out of habit as a gift ...
      Only on May 9 and our victory has nothing to do with it.

    All the same, it would be better for the generals to create a separate award. And leave the Hero of Russia directly for reward for the feat associated with the risk to life, for example, when officers threw grenades at them, covering it, doing the impossible on a tank, they destroyed a large amount of enemy equipment alone (Hero of Russia Mylnikov 2008 South Ossetia), pilots in Izhma landed the plane on a small runway, etc. etc.

      I agree with you. Hero of the Russian Federation - a state award of the Russian Federation - Russia, the highest rank awarded for services to the state and people associated with the performance of a heroic feat.
      A feat in the dictionary of Ushakov:
      Valorous, heroic deed, important action in its value, committed in difficult or dangerous conditions.
      What specific “heroic deeds” are on the combat account of the Chief of the General Staff and the Deputy Defense Ministry of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation - an air ram, successful throwing behind enemy lines and calling fire on oneself, being surrounded, or testing military equipment with a risk to life? And do we have, besides the highest award of the Russian Federation, other no less high awards for rewarding the leadership of the Defense Ministry for the successful development and organization of military operations?
      For example, the Order of St. George, which is awarded to military personnel from among senior and senior officers ... for conducting military and other operations in other countries while maintaining or restoring international peace and security, which have become a model of military art ...

        Here another moment may play a role, for the title of Hero of Russia, the pension fund pays for life about 45000 rubles a month. I don’t know how for other awards, most likely they want to reward money for merits + to the monetary allowance of the generals.

          The highest state award is the Order of the Holy Apostle Andrew the First-Called
          By the decree of the President of the Russian Federation Boris Yeltsin of July 1, 1998 No. 757, the Order of the Holy Apostle Andrew the First-Called was restored. Excerpt from the decree:
          1. The Order of the Holy Apostle Andrew the First-Called is the highest state award of the Russian Federation.

          2. The Order of the Holy Apostle Andrew the First-Called is awarded to outstanding statesmen and public figures and other citizens of the Russian Federation for their exceptional merits that contribute to the prosperity, greatness and glory of Russia.

          3. The Order of the Holy Apostle Andrew the First-Called may be awarded for outstanding services to the Russian Federation by heads and heads of governments of foreign states.

          4. The badge of the Order of the Holy Apostle Andrew the First-Called is worn on the order chain or on a shoulder tape. Wearing the sign of the Order of the Holy Apostle Andrew the First-Called on the order chain is allowed in especially solemn occasions. When wearing the sign of the Order of the Holy Apostle Andrew the First-Called on the shoulder strap, it passes over the right shoulder. The star of the Order of the Holy Apostle Andrew the First-Called is located on the left side of the chest, to the left of the orders below the order blocks.

          5. The badge and star of the Order of the Holy Apostle St. Andrew the First-Called with swords are awarded for the distinctions in hostilities.

          6. When wearing the ribbon of the Order of the Holy Apostle Andrew the First-Called on the bar, it is located above other order ribbons.

            Question for filling: for which Medvedev handed this order to Gorbachev at one time ??? !!!

              Medvedev is generally an empty place! Wherever he did not command - EVERYTHING has to either be redone, or returned to normal! There is no place for him in the post of chairman of the government! He must be the President’s right hand, and he is his left foot!

    The operation was really carried out brilliantly and with the LOWEST POSSIBLE LOSS! If it were not for the Janissaries, then both material and human losses would be much less.

      I’ll also throw a question, do you think the operation is completed? I don’t like such advances.

    It’s somehow joyful in my heart that you appreciated the work of the generals for organizing the operation in Syria, but I also feel some discomfort from this ...

    It seems to me that the status of the title of Hero of Russia was somewhat lowered, assigning it to the holidays, and ... and unknowingly for some other reasons ...

    It would have to be awarded for truly heroic deeds, but the status and significance of the Order "For Service to the Motherland (Fatherland)" also needs to be raised to the same extent as the Orders of Lenin and the Red Banner of Battle were previously ...

    And for the operation in Syria it would be necessary to award this order ...

    PS Anyway, I don’t like the way awards are given out to us ... Especially the highest ...

    Nevertheless, I am happy for the generals and wish them continued success in the matter of honest and conscientious service to the Fatherland.

    Specifically, those who put into practice the general plans in Syria - with the upcoming holiday and the desire to achieve victories and return home alive!

      If I’m not mistaken, the astronauts of the Hero of Russia are still handed over, although in fact space flight has become a routine, there is a risk to life, but it is much less than at the dawn of the space era, when astronauts like Gagarin and Leonov took a step into the unknown.

    A talented military leader can so competently plan a military operation in which the goals set will be achieved with minimal casualties. But there are also unsuccessfully planned operations, and then victory will be achieved due to the massive feat of the military and unreasonably large losses in manpower. So for me, let the generals and officers receive the highest awards for carrying out successful operations, if at the same time the soldiers are saved.

    28 years ago, in a training session at political classes, the company political officer said that only two categories of military personnel give orders in the Army. These are Generals and Sergeants. All who are between pass the order to a higher-lower order. These words directly engraved in memory. I have no doubt that the award is well-deserved, with which I sincerely congratulate the Heroes.

      This was precisely the problem; the officers should also think with their own heads within the framework of the unit entrusted to him.
      For example, naval commanders often consulted with headquarters during Soviet times, not risking taking responsibility in a controversial situation. The authority of the commanders of US ships is much wider.
      Even now, by indirect signs, it is possible to determine, for example, when US ships came on a friendly visit to our port, there were only officers with the rank of commander or captain (captain of the 2nd rank and captain of the 1st rank, respectively), as our two admirals went on board in the United States. As a responsible firing, the admiral must be present with us.

      If you look at the Great Patriotic War, then the generals and marshals developed maneuvers at the level of the army and division. And already officers in the ranks of Captain-Colonel, solved a specific problem in relation to the area, how best to gain a foothold in this area, how to distribute personnel, how it is better to use equipment, etc. etc. After all, it was not the sergeants or the generals who did it.
      The sergeant usually commanded the crew of the tank, the calculation of guns, etc.

        Yes, reinsurance in the Navy is a holy thing! Here you are 100% right.
        Until 92, the commanders of surface ships "with clearance" independently went to sea to work out the BP, on combat duty and interbase transitions, even if the first officer was "not allowed". But starting from the year 93-94 the naval "insanity with reinsurance" finally prevailed over all reasonable!
        It got to the point of absurdity, when without the "senior on board" - the chief of staff or the commander of the formation - not that "around the corner to refuel" a ship with a regular and authorized commander was not allowed, but they were obliged to re-moor from one berth to another " senior "! There is even nothing to say about shooting, exercises and duty!
        He himself found at sea in 5 years of "seniority" as much as in the previous 9 years in the position of SPK and ship commander!
        The American commanders couldn’t dream of such a worst dream, probably ...

    Forgot about one more Hero of Russia, awarded posthumously - the head of the SVR? But he seems to have died in a sanatorium near Moscow from heart failure, and not in Lebanon? how is the adversary slandering ?! Or we will be informed later how the Russian Hero actually died !? By the way, they forgot to reward one more who died while completing the task of the Motherland - in March 2015, our resident was killed in Turkey "under unclear circumstances", his body with traces of torture was thrown on the seashore in Antalya. Something like this - the secret intelligence war is in full swing! And you say. that the Turks hit us in the back. shooting down the Su 24? Yes, they have long been a pitchfork to us! And we, they say, will not buy your tomatoes? Peacocks, you say ...

      It seems that you, too, have forgotten something, or maybe you didn’t know at all ...
      Before expressing "fair indignation" - you first need to figure out who actually died - it was the head of the GRU, and the director of the SVR is alive and well (tell the names or find out yourself?) ...
      Learn materiel - SVR and GRU, as they say in Odessa - two big differences ... hi

    I read the comments and ask why why are you all sitting here in the comments, and not in the General Staff and not in the presidential advisers on defense and in other power structures to make our army better. Or like Reagan I don’t remember exactly, but everyone who could work as president unfortunately works as a taxi driver and dishwasher.

      As far as I know, General Bulgakov is a distinguished Officer, he fought in Chechnya, General Gerasimov, and General Bulgakov are direct developers and executors of successful operations of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. For their work, they received well-deserved rewards. We can only guess about the difficult work of the leadership of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, which provided the operation in the SAR, Crimea, and other places .. I am not surprised by the comments. Those who served and do not have a developed sense of envy and inferiority complex, congratulated. Most likely these are Officers. I confess.

    Everything seems to be right, and people are worthy, and it should be awarded, but why the star of the Hero? And the status of the award seems to be far-fetched.

    Only one figure (I remember from school) - for the entire Second World War, and this is almost 4 years of a terrible war, the title of Hero was awarded to only about 11400 people ...
