    Military to increase by 13,628 and civilians by 4,052.

    Was expecting something like this and believe it relates to Spetsstroy being dissolved and most functions passed to the Ministry of Defense. Spetsstroy officially known as the Federal Agency for Special Construction has been plagued by inefficiency and corruption. Their mishandling of the Vostochny Spaceport construction was the final straw for Putin and he axed them. They performed much the same functions of the US Corp of Engineers, using civilian workers managed by the military for large government construction jobs. The last figures that I saw suggested they had ~14,000 servicemen (military) and that was 10-15 years ago. Other articles suggest they will operate in 8 divisions or companies. Not sure if that will be based on regional or by function.

    Yup. Still, given the increased number of contract soldiers lately I think they should absorb that number without any issues.

    Russia begins spring military drafting campaign

    This year conscripts from Crimea who used to serve in the region will be sent for the first time to all regions of Russia

    MOSCOW, April 1. /TASS/. About 142,000 people will be called up for military service during the spring drafting campaign that began in Russia on Saturday. Its distinctive feature will be a significant reduction in the number of recruits - 10,000 less than usual.

    Another distinctive feature is that this year conscripts from Crimea who used to serve in the region will be sent for the first time to all regions of Russia.

    In some regions, the dates for the drafting campaign have been shifted due to weather conditions. According to Yevgeny Burdinsky, Deputy Head of the Russian General Staff's Chief Organization and Mobilization Directorate, "the drafting campaign in the Transbaikal, Kamchatka and Khabarovsk Territories, as well as in the Chukotka Autonomous District and Yakutia, will begin a month later - on May 1."

    The Russian Defense Ministry reported that direct telephone line on the drafting campaign will begin working in the General Staff’s Chief Organization and Mobilization Directorate on May 16.

    In the fall of 2016, 152,000 people were called up for military service. Many conscripts traditionally expressed the desire to serve in the airborne troops, special ops units and marine corps.

    MOSCOW, May 1 - RIA Novosti. Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law allowing him to conclude a contract for military service with servicemen who received secondary vocational education prior to the call-up.

    The law establishes the right to conclude a contract for military service entering the military service in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, the troops of the National Guard of the Russian Federation, the Ministry for Emergency Situations, the Foreign Intelligence Service and state security agencies for military servicemen undergoing military service on conscription who received secondary vocational education prior to conscription. In addition, a similar right is granted to male citizens who are not in the reserve and who have received secondary vocational education.

    Currently, in accordance with Russian legislation, only male citizens who are not in reserve and conscripts with higher education can enter military service on a contract without military service. Male citizens who do not stay in reserve, who have secondary vocational education, are not able to conclude contracts for military service in military posts of privates and sergeants, as well as ensigns without military service, and conscripts with secondary vocational education may To enter the military service on contract, having served not less than three months.

    With the announcement the other day of 134,000 being conscripted in the fall, that brings the 2017 total to 276,000 conscripts (142,000 in the spring). This is 30,000 less then 2016 totals of 152,000 and 154,000 respectively.
    Out of this total, approximately 30,000 conscripts a year are sent to National Guard (mostly) with a few hundred each going to the FSO (Kremlin Guards) and EMERCON (military units). Last year's total was 275,000 out of 306,000+ total conscripts serving in the Defense forces.
    Am not sure what factor the demographic crisis of draft-able 18 year old's play into this, as 2017 and 2018 are the low points on this curve with slow increases starting again in 2019.
    Another factor is contract servicemen, with the planned total by end of 2017 being 425,000. This would represent an increase of 41,000 over the end of 2016 total of 384,000 contract servicemen. The end of the year will reveal how successful this was but overall would not represent much of an increase for the year (~10,000).
    This does not include the almost 14,000 servicemen that transferred into the Defense forces from the dissolved Spetsstroy (Special Construction). Have seen figures in the past suggesting this force would be 4-6,000 officers and 8-10,000 Warrant Officers, Sergeants and contract servicemen.

    Armed Forces of the Russian Federation

    Head of the Main Organizational-Mobilization Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia, October 1, 2017 :

    In accordance with the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation this autumn, 134,000 people are called up for military service. As for the order of its conduct, then there are no fundamental innovations, although there are certain features.
    First, for the first time in recent years, the number of citizens conscripted for military service has been significantly reduced. This time there are 18 thousand fewer than last fall. This is primarily due to the increase in the Armed Forces of the share of contract servicemen, the number of which has increased by almost 200 thousand people in the past five years alone.
    [...] Currently, the ratio of the number of contract soldiers to conscripts is 56 to 44 percent.
    Given the pace and timing of the rearmament of the army and navy (and today the acquisition process is synchronized with the supply of modern weapons and military equipment, as well as with the construction of infrastructure facilities), it is planned to continue increasing the number of contract servicemen until 2021. At the same time, the need for conscripts will decrease by no less than 30 percent .
    However, we do not plan to completely refuse military service on conscription.


    Proceeding from the declared ratio. At the moment, 294,000 conscript servicemen are serving in the army ( 152,000 - II-2016, 142,000 - I-2017). Accordingly, the contracted forces in the RF Armed Forces are now about 374,000.
    Meanwhile, in May of this year Shoigu said that "the number of contractors in the Russian army has increased to 384 thousand people." In December 2016, he called the same figure: 384,000 people. Probably the matter is that in December 2015 Shoigu showed Putin exactly this figure for the plan for 2016: 384 000. Perhaps that's why she wanders from the speech in the performance, not overlapping with the true state of affairs.
    I would also recall that in February 2014, it was announced that it intended to have 425,000 contractors by January 1, 2017. It seems that at some stage this plan, as unreal, was silently thrown into the basket.

    UPD. The new plan for 2017 was announced in April this year:
    In 2017, a target benchmark was set-405,000 military posts to be replaced by contract servicemen.

    I heard they want to increase ages of contract and conscript forces. Because now life expectancy increases and plus there are a lot of guys in their 30's interested in serving now too. Woman being introduced into more military rolls like pilots and even intelligence helps move men to other places too.

    Essentially, once they move to full contract armed forces, there will be growth in people interested in serving. Decent wages, taken care of and the growth of patriotism is a thing too.

    The Ministry of Defense website mentions there being 38 of these (not listed individually), but this may not include branches.
    Last year there were graduates from 46 institutes of which it was mentioned that for one (IT), it was the first class graduated and for another Institute (actually a branch of), it was the last class scheduled to graduate. So that would indicate a total of 45.
    Commissioned officers courses run 4-5 years.
    Warrant officers courses run 2 years, 10 months.
    Sergeant courses run 10 months.
