Military Review

The Kremlin makes up new mobilization plans

100
Since 15 July, the Federal Law 61-FZ “On Defense” has come into effect in a new edition of 3 July this year. Obviously, the changes in the 1996 law of the year are caused by the appearance of the Rosguards, and are also associated with an analysis of the results of the two strategic exercises. As is known, civilian ministries, departments, as well as authorities of several subjects of the Federation participated in them. It is clear that in this case we can talk about mobilization measures. They are carried out in accordance with Section V “State of War. Martial law. Mobilization. Civil defense. Territorial defense "of the federal law.


The most recent sudden random test of the mobilization readiness of military and state authorities to act in armed conflicts of varying intensity and in crisis situations took place from 14 to 22 in June of this year. The state of the reserve formations, the stockpiles of weapons and military equipment, the organization of the interaction of the staffs with the executive authorities and military commissariats, and the readiness of the control system were checked. The mobilization readiness and ability to perform the tasks of territorial defense with the mobilization of individual military authorities and units was assessed. At the final stage, the possibility of the military districts to co-ordinate and withdraw the formed formations and units of special forces to the areas of emergency situations of natural and man-made character was tested.

The results of the verification were not reported anywhere. This is understandable, because the country's mobility and mobilization training are the most closed areas of government. Speaking at the joint Plenum of the Central Committee and Central Control Commission of the CPSU (b) in 1927, a member of the Politburo and Chairman of the USSR Supreme Economic Council Alexei Rykov, who replaced Vladimir Lenin in this post, said: “In military affairs, we have a number of such conspiratorial issues and things that we avoid sending out notes even to members of the Politburo and, in some cases, familiarize them with a single instance. ”

Nowadays, everything that relates to defense and security falls into the category of state and military secrets, and mobilization plans and mobilization schedules for deploying the armed forces and economic sectors during the transition period and in a state of war are in the first place among specially protected state secrets.

From the scanty bits of information, one can guess some conclusions drawn from strategic exercises and checks. It became known, for example, that 30 June at a meeting of the government of the Russian Federation discussed changes in some acts of the government. In particular, the powers of the Ministry of Environment, Rosprirodnadzor, Rosnedra, Rosgidromet, Rosvodresursy and Rosleskhoz to organize and ensure mobilization training and mobilization, as well as to monitor and coordinate the activities of their territorial bodies and subordinate organizations for mobilization training and mobilization were specified. Following the results of the discussion, the government of the Russian Federation, by its resolution 7 July, approved changes in some state acts. In accordance with them, the listed federal authorities should organize and ensure mobilization training and mobilization of their departments, as well as control and coordination of the activities of their territorial bodies and organizations under their authority for mobilization training and mobilization.

In follow-up to the decisions taken and in connection with the start of the budget process for the next three years, President 12 July held a meeting on the formation of the budget of the security forces in the current economic realities, taking into account the need to unconditionally ensure national security. The meeting was attended by Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev, Head of the Presidential Control Department Konstantin Chuichenko, Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, Presidential Aide Andrei Belousov, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov, Chairman of the Accounts Chamber Tatiana Golikova, FSB Director Alexander Bortnikov, Director of the Federal National Guard Service - Commander-in-Chief of the National Guard Viktor Zolotov.

However, the motives, focus, institutional framework and dynamics of mobilization planning remain unclear. It may seem from the outside that military preparations are situational in nature and have little to do with the strategy for the development of international relations and Russia's place in them. It is not by chance that there are accusations from NATO that the Russian side formally violates the Vienna document 2011 on confidence-building and security measures. The next test of the nerves of NATO generals will be the West-2017 strategic command and staff exercise. At the board of the Ministry of Defense in March of this year, Sergei Shoigu noted that special attention is paid to the preparation of the Russian-Belarusian Regional Group of Forces for training. It is not difficult to guess that the exercises are a key event in the plan approved by the leadership of Russia and Belarus to create a unified military organization by the year of 2018. It is possible that the Union State will also have general mobilization plans. However, much in this matter depends on Moscow.

The large-scale re-equipment of the Russian army means a transition from the development of production facilities to the mass production of weapons and the accumulation of military stocks. It is argued that the military industry is the locomotive for the development of the entire economy. This statement is true here and now, but does not take into account the long-term perspective at all, and the process of turning to the strengthening of the military component in the economy causes the West to fear that having reached a critical mass, the Russian weapon may or should be directed against someone. Moscow’s assurances that the country's readiness is not being tested with the aim of committing aggression, but to strengthen the defense of the state, in the West do not want to hear.

    What the hell are "motives unclear"?
    Are we supposed to sit and bathe in the nose, drink a beer and calmly watch how more and more concentration of troops and new weapons systems, including missile defense at our borders?
    Enough, we went through this in our history, and we know what it cost us complacency and confidence that no one will fight with us. Certain ones are being made in the field of mobilization and training of the reserve - rightly so, it is necessary.
    And the fact that the West does not hear our assurances that all this is being done to strengthen the defense of the state is somehow parallel. They never tried to hear us. The general line of their policy - "Russia is the enemy", has long been chosen and designated, and they do not deviate from it. Their actions are in line with this line - the concentration of more and more of their forces at our borders.
    We did, are doing and will continue to do everything so that the West does not even have a ghostly thought that any of their aggressive actions will receive an adequate response. And better - asymmetric.

      It is easy to guess that the exercises are a key event in the plan approved by the leadership of Russia and Belarus to create a single military organization by 2018. It is possible that the Union State will have common mobilization plans. However, much in this matter depends on Moscow.

      “This is what I like best.” It is high time our countries unite, at first, at least in a military organization. Cooperation is one thing and a completely different thing, a single military organization.

I sincerely hope that as in the Second World War the Belarusians fought to the death with us, and now they will "send to the erotic on foot" any authorities that want to lure them into NATO. And the third option (either to NATO or against - these are 2 options) - no.

        The people, what is going on in general? Straight master class in pereobuvaniyu in the jump ... laughing

        In the meantime ... in Sweden ... they put the Natsik, who went to the Donbass to fight for the Kiev junta ...
        Swedish court gave three years in prison to a local Nazi who fought in “Azov” and “Aydar”
        There is a certain Andreas Karlsson in Sweden, known for being a high-ranking functionary of the Swedish Nazi "Party of the Swedes", who is also an active participant in the Ukrainian Maidan, a fighter of the "Azov" and "Aidar" gangs. On July 22 2016, Karlsson was sentenced to three years in prison in his homeland.

        On November 27, last year, SBU officers detained him in Lviv. Oripol gave the orientation. In the SIZO he stayed until March of this year, and then was handed over to the authorities of Sweden, much to the chagrin of his Ukrainian associates. At first there were doubts whether to expel a brother according to reason? But his extradition was prompted by the detainee’s constant complaints about the conditions of detention and the quality of food in a Ukrainian democratic, European prison.

        According to the Swedish press, he was convicted for having stabbed two feminist demonstrators with a knife and fatally injured a man on the evening of March 9, 2014. Witnesses of the crime were civilians of Malmö. However, the Nazi’s involvement in the death of a third victim in court could not be proved.

        “The struggle should not go for the number of years and months that individual Nazis should spend behind bars, but for no Nazis to have the right to walk our streets freely,” said the injured Shomman Shattak, commenting on the court decision.

      I am glad that it seems that an understanding has come: the armed forces of such a state as the Russian Federation can be relatively small, albeit well equipped, ("compact") only in peacetime or during a local conflict.
      If a slightly larger confrontation, for example, the danger posed by banderlogy with a population of more than 40 million and a total border of more than 2000 km, then the deployment of the so-called units and formations of the frame can not do ...

    Firstly, Russia's defense is our own business, it is stupid to discuss foreign articles. Another thing is that when discussing the article, they would not notice other events in the country. After the first Yeltsin privatization, we were covered by the second Putin privatization. In the first privatized everyone who had the arrogance. Now the Russians are forbidden to privatize, only foreigners. Mr. Dvorkovich recently cursed very much when he found out that he wanted to allow Russian enterprises to privatize.
    Attention is the question if the enterprises have foreign owners, will these enterprises work for the Russian defense industry?

      If Russia is attacked, and the integrity of the Russian Federation is in danger, then all enterprises will immediately become nationalized, especially smart owners will have time to blame the hill, especially zealous and unyielding, they will remain here! All large and small enterprises will work I’m not going to force Russian people, lessons have been held .. remember and don’t forget! Yes, I think if there are those who don’t want, then I think there will be leverage from a friend of the GDP, the NKVD worked in good faith, I think and The FSB is not blundered!

          Altona! 17.38. And here you are absolutely right! I support! Then another question of mobilization. In the Union, people (all) worked for the country and almost lived by registration. Agendas brought to addresses, lists went to work. Even when Chernobyl was liquidated, there were lists at the enterprise from the military enlistment office whom were taken for liquidation. Today, many enterprises or private or private entrepreneurs, many work as shift workers, many do not live by registration in other cities. In case of emergency, how to gather people? It is necessary to find by registration, to find where it works, what the private trader will say to the military commissar ??? Let's say they collected at school. It’s necessary to carry. Where to get the buses and who will refuel them? If you dig, a lot of questions are typed.

            Found buses, collected, brought. And where to get fuel for transport? Where to get metal concrete, asphalt and wood for the construction of fortifications and rocky roads? Where to get personal protective equipment? It was the state mobility reserve at enterprises. I’m developing your idea further ... Airplanes for the transfer of troops to the exercises, and then, they refueled for 5 hours, private traders do not want to give kerosene. They require guarantees from the state for payment. And Serdyukov liquidated his own fuel bases at the time.
            PS And about the Olympics and similar provocations in international affairs, the USSR had a plan "B" than to answer "partners". And not humiliatingly ask "not to hit too hard." This concerned the financing of international organizations and some strong demarches.

      Mobility involves close coordination of the army-OPK_VPK-national economy ...
      And when, after all privatizations, each owner is his own god and master, how are these relations being built now ???

      Previously, each machine-mechanism was registered, any production was designed for quick re-profiling for military needs ... And now ???

      After all, a huge territory will not save now, weapons are completely different from those in the 2nd World War (WWII) ...

      It seems to me that the difficulties with mobility should now be big ... Moreover, the fact that it seems to have taken hold of it tightly and will determine the effective mechanism of its functioning inspires hope ...

        It’s sad now ... Mobilization from a huge number of enterprises is simply removed. Maybe this is the reason - who in a fleeting war (3-4 months of conducting OSB, then RSEU-pip ec) will be re-profiled? But the existing reserves, of course, will be needed.
        And then a terribly secret Rosrezerv crawls out onto the stage. Here, for example, in the Siberian Federal District, the deputy head of the mobilization reserve department was accepted in the pre-trial detention center - 100 high-security officers during the search and another 30 cars, rifles, and watches. His colleague suddenly quit.
        In other words: the state gives money for mobility. The consequence will show how much bureaucrats settles in the pockets of this tasty trough. May be.

      What are you talking about ...

      1. Verification of plans for the mobilization deployment of troops during the threatened period. Sure. necessary. Warehouses .bases. Their completeness. Systems of hanging and calling a mob resource. Ability to deploy connections and parts, their coordination. And most importantly, the readiness of local civil authorities to work in this period.
      Yes, all states are doing this.
      Naturally, conclusions and changes will be made in the organizational documents .., possibly, the structure of organs and tasks ..

      2. SKSHU "West 2017" is there anything special ??? Planned doctrine. With a period of 2 years. Checking one of the plans for a strategic defensive operation in the western theater of operations. In September 2016, in the Southern OK there will be exercises "Caucasus-2016" .... there is intensive preparation for it .. Do you need such exercises? The question is rhetorical ..
      3. Against the Russian Federation, NATO countries led by the United States are conducting real operations. ” Atlantic determination. ” Operation Atlantic Resolve since 2014
      interesting - take a look .. http://www.defense.gov/News/Special-Reports/0514_Atlantic-Resolve .... Even canada caved in and carries out an operation in Europe

      The Soviet system of mobilization is no longer a priori incapable, since there is no basis for it, that is, that State. Now in Russia there is both the opportunity and the desire to create a new mobilization system that meets modern requirements. And God forbid that everything works out.

    Unfortunately I must disappoint you. Weapons are there to fight. At the moment we fit into the overall picture of the imperialist community. And no matter how pathetically we talk about some mythical "special mission" of Russia, a special path of development and a national idea, the essence of the development of events remains the same as it was described by K. Marx, F. Engels and V. Lenin. In order not to greatly complicate you, I will give only a few short quotes.
    1. “Imperialism is capitalism at the stage of development when monopoly and financial capital dominated, export of capital has acquired outstanding importance, the world has begun to be divided by international trusts, and the division of the entire territory of the earth by the largest capitalist countries has ended” V. I. Lenin
    2. "The uneven development of capitalist countries in the era of imperialism leads to a sharp exacerbation of the struggle for colonies, markets and spheres of influence." V.I. Lenin
    3. "War is a phenomenon of class society, the basis of which is private ownership of the means of production. It is a continuation of the policy of certain classes by other, violent means" K. Marx, F. Engels
    4. ".. .. war is inevitable as long as society is divided into classes, while there is exploitation of man by man" V.I. Lenin
    T.O. sooner or later, insoluble contradictions arising between countries or alliances of countries, the struggle for sales markets and spheres of influence will lead to a logical result - a military solution to the problems and a new redivision of the world. And we, as the country of victorious capitalism, will also participate in this. A patriotic base can be brought under anything. Something like this. You can’t trample on science ...

      Breshet your science. Wars were in primitive communal society, and in Ancient Greece, and during the Middle Ages, when imperialism did not smell. And indeed, Marxism-Leninism is not a science.
      Wars are caused by the primary reflex of man to dominance. Which, in turn, is due to the evolutionary law of natural selection.
      And while there are Humans there will be wars. They will be until God is tired of it.
      Something like that.

        You juggle so easily about what is science and law and what is not. Aren't you making them up? And then they completely confused everything: if the "evolutionary law of natural selection" determines the "reflex of a person to domination", this "reflex" of yours is no longer primary, but secondary.
        And there are big doubts about your reflexes. I do not think that Hitler had from birth or acquired a reflex to attack the USSR and conquer the World in general, because the "reflex" is the simplest unconscious reaction of the body to irritation of the receptors. In your opinion, the one-year-old Adolf only yelled when he began to say that he wanted to attack Russia and conquer the whole world.

    Quote: The state of reserve formations, stocks of weapons and military equipment, the organization of the interaction of the headquarters with the executive authorities and military commissariats, and the readiness of the control system were checked. The mobilization readiness and ability to carry out the tasks of territorial defense with the mobilization of individual military command bodies and units was assessed.
    I am probably a pessimist, but the interaction of the headquarters with the executive authorities was destroyed during the rule of the URDO. recovery is very difficult and slow as we would like. The inertia of acts and regulations governing these measures must be eliminated, since in a rapidly changing environment in the world and within the country it requires prompt changes, which unfortunately does not happen. Well, checking the state of the storage of weapons is not superfluous, since "the gunpowder must be kept dry," and even more so that Russia was officially declared an enemy of the supposedly "civilized world." Even what nah ..... obscurity these measures are aimed at repelling the attack of the West on Russia. And do not be ashamed of these preparations and checks.

    At the same time, motives and orientation remain unclear., institutional framework and dynamics of mobilization planning. It might seem that military preparations are situational and have little to do with the development strategy of international relations and Russia's place in them. It is no coincidence that NATO accuses that the Russian side formally violates the Vienna Document 2011 on confidence- and security-building measures.

    Do you remember Igor Mamenko's story "Meeting the New Year"? There, two friends wandering through the forest in search of food fell into a den to a bear. The bear was asleep. To prevent him from waking up, they began to sing him a lullaby. Either they sang out of tune, or something ... but the bear woke up ...
    So, by analogy with the story, all of this NATO pack, wandering around Europe, failed with its whole hamlet in the den of the Russian Bear. belay It would be time for NATO to kill on the nose that they were singing so falsely, getting close to the Bear that they forced him to wake up. New plans, new events and ... what’s the strangest thing, no one will dedicate this NATO deeply into their plans ... No.

    My area is larger than Switzerland. Neither SSBNs, nor strategic nuclear forces, nor airborne forces, nor anything else were seen there, and the USA and England did not voice Switzerland as enemy No. 1.
    The wars with the Arabs are not exactly what we had to endure when, with Napoleon and Hitler, the whole civilized Europe poured on us for company.

My parents' family was evacuated to Chebarkul in 1940. But there will be no global war now, at the moment. And the mobilization plans of the Soviet era worked quite well for themselves in the early 90s: in Chechnya, the Fergana Valley, Transnistria, Nagorno-Karabakh, in the Baltic States, in Konisberg, etc., depending on which side took advantage of them.

    This statement is true here and now, but it does not take into account the distant prospect at all, and the process of turning towards the strengthening of the military component in the economy causes the West to fear that, having reached a critical mass, Russian weapons might or should even be directed against someone.

    That's right, if Russia had the same strong army as the USSR, they would put horseradish on the United States and their sanctions, and Europe would not even think about any sanctions against Russia.

      December 29, 1981, US President Ronald Reagan announced trade sanctions against the USSR, including the cessation of supplies of materials intended for the construction of the Siberian gas pipeline.

      Regarding US sanctions, Andreas Mayer-Landrut, the FRG ambassador to the USSR in the 1980s, said the following: “The Americans were very interested in the embargo against the Soviet Union. It is interesting that the American grain export lobby in 1981 got the same Reagan's exclusive right to export grain to the USSR, and businessman Armand Hammer received permission to supply fertilizers.Pressure was exerted on Germany to refuse the gas-pipe deal, but Bonn was firmly in the position that this agreement was concluded earlier, and therefore it is not subject to the embargo.

    author, DRINK YADU! "Rubber product No. 2".
    We are not Papuans. We will not fight with a bow and arrows. Even "modern", such as "Oplot" and other shnyaga from 404.
    The rearmament of the army is a CONTINUOUS process. If EBN reduced this process to 0, then this does not mean that it will always be so.

    Once I had a chance "with one eye" to look at the Mobilization Plan of the USSR (A document labeled "Of special importance" with "000")! In general, I've seen only two such "important" documents in my life - this first, and the second, revealed the reasons for the Afghan, Angolan and Iraqi campaigns: extremely interesting documents? It would be interesting to look at this Plan: to compare both options and understand how the Russian military thought (strategy) differs from the Soviet one? True, they say that the Soviet one was copied from the tsarist mob. plan! I cannot judge how true this is, but the general "features" (provisions) are obvious: now there is a lot of information on the deployment of the army since the outbreak of the First World War in July-August 1914. At the same time, it was precisely the weak organization "according to the mobilization plan in case of the outbreak of war" that prevented Russia from immediately seizing the strategic initiative and defeating Prussia in the battle of Gumbinene in the first months? However, I will leave this reasoning to military analysts or historians - the main thing is, what is the strategy of modern Russia now and whether our army and navy are capable of "deploying" in 72 hours, and not in 14 days as before?

      Yeah. The problem is that if REALLY could look at the mobplane, then not only here, but also to his wife (lover, etc.) FIG would have hinted about this. Chat more ...

        I'm not chatting, I'm writing about it! I gave a subscription, serving in the USSR and that country, not Russia? And nevertheless, for almost 15 years he could not get a foreign one. passport, but now "a free bird" - I fly wherever I want and according to Article 29 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation I am free to express my thoughts: Have you seen in my commentary at least any stated fact (detail) (except for the name of the document) or figures? "If you burn yourself with milk, there is nothing to blow on the water!" Yes, and "FIG" is somehow vulgar for our expert community, and even more so among officers? Don't you think, gentlemen?

    Dear readers! Mobilization is a very complex process and this process begins long before the outbreak of hostilities. It all starts with the fact that enterprises in advance begin to produce military products in large quantities. This stage is not so noticeable, because most people don’t even know about it. This stage has already begun in Russia.
    At the same time, there is an increase in strategic food supplies. But only relevant specialists know about this process. It seems that this process has also begun in Russia, because I saw with my own eyes on central television a story about underground strategic reserves of sugar. It was not repeated on any channel.
    Mobilization of the population is also a matter of more than one day or even a month. It all starts with the noticed mobilization in aggressor countries. Of course, when military commissariats and receiving military units never really did this, then there will be confusion. But this is a matter of a few days when the gnawers will be shot, the rest will organize the process of mobilization of the population perfectly. The modern aggressor will also have this question (except for Israel and Syria).
    I want to note that in Russia the size of the army has already been increased from 900 thousand people. up to 2 million people.
    So the process of mobilization in Russia is already in full swing. In the West they also see this, and they howl and declare us aggressors.
    I would like to add. The war with Russia can be different: this is an ordinary local war with a state or group of states, this is a global non-nuclear strike by the USA and NATO against Russia, and this is a war with the use of nuclear weapons. In the event of a nuclear strike, mobilization of the population can be forgotten. After the global non-nuclear strike, all of Russia's infrastructure and industry could be destroyed. In such conditions, mobilization is possible, but with great difficulties, because the leadership of the Country and the Regions and in the army may be destroyed.
    It should be borne in mind that the Perimeter system in this case will automatically launch a global nuclear strike against all potential aggressors. They will also answer us and you can also forget about the mobilization of the population.

      There is no "perimeter"! No need to invent. No one will allow "robots" to control humanity, for now. Mobilization must be in the mind. If you have the stamp "liable for military service" in your passport, then you should empathize with it. Question: the stamp is worth it, what will I do? If anything ... I don't know, and a lot of my friends as well.

      A global non-nuclear strike against Russia will entail a global NUCLEAR response on our part. So only the 1 and 3 options are possible.

    There are two examples of the latest mobilization in terms of logistics. During the Vietnam War, the Amerians completely subordinated the container fleet (then it was modern) for the needs of their transportation, while including all ships that sailed under offshore (flags of convenience). We bought some Turkish wreckage on the Syrian Express. Because there is no one and nowhere to mobilize the transport fleet.

    Proper mobilization is the key to victory. Even our "announcer" friends could not do it. To mobilize 1991, the Iraqis did not go to the assembly points, everyone was "tired" of the war with Iran. In 2003, there was no one to go out.

    Is there anything that the operation in East Prussia was carried out outside of any mobilization plans in general? What did not finish these same mobplanes, went to save the allies?

      Exactly "nothing" - in the first months of the war they put the whole guard, which they had been preparing for years (decades), while the mobilized "bast shoes" were going to the war - were they driven to recruiting stations from the villages? and then there was no one to protect tsarism from the revolution? You haven’t thought about this, my inquisitive colleague?

        What did this guard eat? Holy Spirit? Or the very benefits that the "bast shoes" produced? In your saying there is a grain of the essence of today's army. If everyone is ready and happy to receive money and run through the teachings, then most do not want to die among the first. Sorry guys, you came to the army, so sooner or later you will have to die for the gestures of politicians, not the officer's special forces will always take the rap.
