    According to the Commander of the 20th Combined Arms Army, there are 2 divisions being formed in the Voronezh and Belgorod regions based on the 9th and 23rd brigades. again time will clarify this.

    November 17 started the command-staff exercise (KSHT) in the Western military district (ZVO) with controls formations and military units of the 20th Field Army, which is stationed in the Voronezh, Belgorod and Bryansk regions.

    On the west direction is maintained the pressure of NATO, does not stop anti-Russian rhetoric in NATO countries and Ukraine, and the maneuvers of the 20th Army remain highly relevant (from Belgorod to Kiev in a straight line - only 430 km).

    According to the KSHT, conducted a military operation with a wide variety of weapons. The staffs at various levels in the challenging environment should take rapid decisions and to ensure a continuous and sustainable management of the troops. During the training clock exchange of information are processed by an automated control system, refined algorithms for processing operations (combat operations) and troop leadership.

    Training centers of the Western Military District at the end of the school year (in the army, he ends November 30) released the 3000 junior professionals who today have the opportunity to confirm the class qualification in the field.

    Yet, for what purpose the 20th combined-arms army returned from the Nizhny Novgorod region to the western borders of the country?
    The answer to NATO calls

    Following the withdrawal of Russian troops from the Warsaw Pact in the 1990s, the Russian army and the division declined steadily for decades. And at the beginning of the XXI century the western direction and the capital of Russia defended alone 20 th Guards Army combined arms (derived from the German Democratic Republic), which was deployed in a shortened form in twelve regions of the Central Federal District. In 2010, the headquarters of the army and some of its parts were transferred from the Voronezh region to the east, in Nizhny Novgorod. And some draft boards were from Smolensk to Moscow. Reverse the movement began only in 2014, against a background of strained relations with Ukraine.

    In February of 2016 was the first time in a quarter century in Russia a new tank army is formed . Today, the western borders of the country cover two full-fledged military association. This is not a repetition of the experience of the Cold War of the XX century, as an answer to the modern Western strategy of containment of Russia .

    Military training ground Pogonovo near Voronezh cleared of unexploded ordnance
    Near the state border, new military units and new Training Ground. Recently, in the Voronezh region began clearing unexploded ordnance and preparation for reconstruction of the landfill Pogonovo, discussed the possibility of expanding military range for Boguchar. There, on a plot of 206 hectares of building two military town, which plans to deploy more than 5,000 troops (the cost of the project will amount to about 2.1 billion. Rubles).

    The commander of the 20th Guards Army, Major-General Yevgeny Nikiforov said recently that in the Voronezh region formed two divisions - based on the 9th separate motorized rifle Vislenskoy and 23rd separate Guards Motorised Piotrkov teams. The process should be completed by December 1, 2016. Save in the army and the compound in the Bryansk region - the 28th separate motorized rifle brigade Simferopol translated from Yekaterinburg.

    Not all of the important teachings and training of troops are the general public, but Russia vigorously strengthens defenses on the west. Increased intensity of training in the field, and even the command-and-staff exercises and training have a strong practical orientation.

    Earlier in November, held the 20th Army doctrine, in which improved methods of management in general, the preparation of commanders and staffs, administration. Perfected organization and management of various types of fighting, the modern organization of work at the control points. The goal - to get as close to the high-tech parameters of information exchange. In modern conflicts, wins the one who will make the right decisions.

    In September, a motorized infantry soldiers connections Western military district (ZVO), with the support of helicopters at the site in the Voronezh region Pogonovo worked suppression breakthrough of the border. And later, as if completing the liquidation of the breakthrough, artillery successfully performed on the same night shooting range .

    At the recent enlarged meeting of the Western Military District Military Council in St. Petersburg the results of the county work was finalized during the year. The commander of the ZVO Colonel General Andrei Kartapolov said: "In 2016, in the district held more than 1,100 exercises and training at various levels, the troops received more than one thousand units of modern military equipment, done extensive work on the improvement of infrastructure and the commissioning of new facilities of combat training ". ZVO defined objectives for the new school year. Priority will be given to the acquisition units and formations military district under the contract.

    Despite the trials of the past two decades, Russia has managed to maintain a defense capability and sovereignty. This has the merit of the 20th Guards Army, which began fighting way in July 1942 (as the 4th Panzer Army) fought for Stalingrad, thunder and Lviv Breslavskiy grouping of German troops.
    Later, soldiers of the 20th Army with honor passed through Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Moldova, North Caucasus, Africa, Yugoslavia. And today, in the classroom and at the sites of the guards adequately prepared to meet any opponent - in the western strategic direction.

    As previously rumored, the 3 motor rifle brigades in Chechnya will unit and reform as the 42nd Guards Motor Rifle division. This was the original unit in Chechnya but split into brigades when the military reforms took place in 2008.

    http://bmpd.livejournal.com/2309097.html

    The other rumored new division would be the motor rifle brigade and regiment in Kaliningrad joining together to form the base of a motor rifle division. Nothing official yet.

    An update on Russian Ground Forces Divisions and Brigades changes;

    - 201st Military Base (Tajikistan) originally a Division organized into 3 Motor Rifle regiments. Operating at about 50% strength. To be reorganized as a Motor Rifle brigade. Would free up the equipment for 2 BMP-2 regiments and about ~1,000 soldiers.  
    - 90th Guards Tank Division (Chebarkul) created using the 7th Tank Brigade (Chebarkul) and the 32nd Motor Rifle brigade transferred from Novosibirsk to Ekaterinburg. A Tank Division normally has 3 Tank Regiments and 1 Motor Rifle Regiment, may have less to start (2 & 1?)
    - 30th Motor Rifle brigade (Samara) created as a new type light brigade. First impressions appear to have 2 battalions using Patriot SUV's and 1 battalion using BTR-82A.
    - 42nd Guard Motor Rifle Division (Chechnya) formed from the 8th, 17th and 18th Motor Rifle brigades. Should free up ~1000 soldiers.
    - 150th Motor Rifle Division (Rostov) formed from the 33rd Mountain Motor Rifle brigade. A Motor Rifle division normally has 3 Motor Rifle Regiments and 1 Tank Regiment, may have less to start (2 & 1?)
    - 2nd Guards Motor Rifle Division adds a Tank regiment to go with the previous 2 Motor Rifle regiments.
    - 4th Guards Tank Division adds a Motor Rifle regiment to go with 2 previous Tank regiments.
    - 144th Motor Rifle Division (Yelnya / Klintsy) created using the 28th Motor Rifle brigade transferred from Ekaterinburg. A Motor Rifle division normally has 3 Motor Rifle Regiments and 1 Tank Regiment, may have less to start (2 & 1?)
    - 3rd Guards Motor Rifle Division (Boguchar / Valuiki) created using the 9th (Mulino) and 23rd (Samara) Motor Rifle brigades. This unit has some question marks attached as Boguchar was where the 10th Guards Tank Division was stood down. In 2014 it was announced that the 1st Tank brigade would be formed here and then in 2015 it was announced the 9th Motor Rifle brigade had transferred there and would form the 10th Guards Tank division with the 1st Tank brigade. There is still talk of both a 1st Tank brigade and a 10th Tank division being formed. Time will tell on this but I'm dubious on 2 new divisions being formed at the same locations. A Motor Rifle division normally has 3 Motor Rifle Regiments and 1 Tank Regiment, may have less to start (2 & 1?)

    CODES: New unit; revised unit; absorbed unit

    NOTE: rumors that the 1st Guards Motor Rifle Division will be formed in Kaliningrad based on the 7th Motor Rifle regiment and the 79th Motor Rifle brigade merging. Nothing official yet.

    A year end look into the National Command Center specifically and the Defense forces overall. Video is 41 minutes long;

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaDUfnah2DY

    Just as a side note, the other main Defense HQ buildings in Moscow are:

    Main Operations Directorate - Arbatskaya Square (old General Staff building)

    Main Organizational and Mobilization Department - Znamenka Street (old Ministry of Defense building across the street from the old General Staff)

    Main Department - Khoroshovskaye Shosse (old GRU HQ, actually the new building... new name, old game would imagine)

    Military police: new challenges

    Combat training and experience in the Syrian define new challenges and changes in the structure of the military units of the military police
    Military police are there more than four dozens of foreign armies. The structure of the Russian Armed Forces in December 2011, the General Directorate of the Military Police of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, was created in December 2011. From that time began the formation of the national army of law enforcement.

    Today, the military police is responsible for maintaining order and discipline in the units and departments, ensures the protection of military facilities and goods, deals with the regulation of traffic, investigation of crimes committed by military personnel, and performs many other important functions of law enforcement.

    About how in five years managed to create a new structure, and in fact what tasks facing the military police today said Chief of Military Police Department of the Ministry of Defense, Lieutenant-General Vladimir Ivanovski.

    To date, approved by the regulatory framework governing the activities of the military police, determined its composition, structure and objectives. Can we consider the formation of the military police has been completed?

    - On completion of the formation of the military police too early to say. Last year, the Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces, Army General Valery Gerasimov approved roadmap, which provides for improving the structure, preparation of guidelines, staffing and equipping of the military police.

    Studying the experience of the use of military police armies of foreign countries confirmed the need for the creation of military units of the military police in the composition of formations and military units, as well as independent agencies of the military police, that is, its territorial bodies.

    Currently, work is continuing to establish and improve the structure of the military police, including military bases overseas. I emphasize that the battalions that perform tasks in the Syrian Arab Republic, - this is the first army military police.

    Actions military units will be tested in the ongoing exercise in 2017, including in the framework of a joint command and staff exercise "Zapad-2017". The results of combat training and experience gained in Syria, will help us to clearly identify the range of problems and make the necessary changes in the structure of military units.

    - What changes, on the basis of lessons learned, we have already entered into force and made adjustments in your work?

    - As a result of unannounced inspections with the transfer of troops to the highest degree of readiness at the territorial authorities, which have already been formed and which returned to the historical name - the military commander's office, tasked with the organization of garrison duty. This is necessary primarily for the coherent implementation of activities of the garrison.

    Changes to the Code of Criminal Procedure gave the chiefs of military police powers to conduct investigation on the crimes committed by military personnel. In this regard, we have much to do to develop their own bodies of inquiry. In particular, to create an appropriate military accounting profession and form of inquiry offices in the states of the military commandant. Today, the military police officers are trained in the military prosecutor's office and military investigative bodies in order to acquire the practice of this work.

    The improvement of the regulatory framework. For example, now the work on amendments to the Articles of Association of the military police. In addition, the General Directorate of the Military Police in conjunction with the Combined Arms Academy of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation is preparing a draft Charter of combat military police. The document will identify the main tasks of the military police in the period of threat and war, as well as forms and methods of their implementation.

    - Built on the commandant's service and VAI, military police took over the tasks and in front of these structures. What are the new features added in this case?

    - In carrying out various activities in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, as well as any activities involving the military police forces responsible for security, including all of its kinds. To ensure its integrated military police coordinate their actions with the military counter-intelligence, the troops of the National Guard of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Interior and Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other federal bodies of executive power. In addition, the interaction with the structures in the framework of the Armed Forces responsible for certain types of security - Chemical Corps, troops electronic warfare and engineering troops.

    Ministry of Defense Guide Military Police appreciated the efforts to ensure a comprehensive security during the International exhibition "Innovation Day of the Defence Ministry of the Russian Federation - 2016," "Army of international games," International military-technical forum "Army 2016" All-Russian festival "Russian Army - 2016 "and a number of other large-scale events.

    One of the new areas of activity for us was the performance of the bodies of inquiry functions. As a law enforcement authority, the military police have the right to institute criminal proceedings and conduct investigations. Another new and very important task of the military police - is to ensure reconciliation of the opposing sides in Syria.

    - If we talk about the Syrian experience, what are the tasks of the military police units decide in a combat zone?

    - In the Syrian Arab Republic, the military police is subordinated to the Russian Centre for Reconciliation of the warring sides and performs primarily peacekeeping missions - providing humanitarian action, protection of medical facilities, support of cargoes. In addition, the military police unit tasked with security officials of the Defense Ministry and the Coordination Center for Reconciliation of the warring parties in the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic, the protection of aircraft and important objects.

    - Why are facing military police tasks can not be entrusted to the troops of the National Guard, police, traffic police, security companies?

    - Army National Guard, police, traffic police, security companies primarily perform tasks for the benefit of the civilian population. We work on the power unit - on the armed forces, and even other law enforcement agencies in order to ensure law and order, military discipline, protect the rights and freedoms of military personnel and civilian personnel, as well as ensuring road safety is under the military structures and in the course of hostilities.

    If we turn to international experience, we can see that the military police are subject to all of the above you on the issue of the structure during the war. And I think that in the future we legislatively obretёm the same status.

    In Syria, the military police dealt with first peacekeeping tasks: provide humanitarian actions, protected sites and accompanies loads

    - What are the forces of the military police of the Armed Forces has today?

    - At present, the total number of military police is about 10 thousand people. In its structure consists of the General Directorate of the military police as a central military command and control authority, the regional military police department and regional road inspection in each Military District and the Northern Fleet, as well as the territorial military police. It is more than 140 commandants of garrisons and about 100 military automobile inspection. In addition, as part of the military police - two disciplinary battalions (note:prisons) stationed in Nizhniy Novgorod and Chita regions. Protection issues involved in the management of the commandant of protection, which is also a structural division of the military police.

    - The presented arsenal of military police, taking into account the specifics of the tasks? Are there any plans of its expansion, for example, due to the air component?

    - Management of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is paying close attention to equipping the military police with modern weapons and military equipment, taking into account the specifics of the tasks performed. In addition to small arms and means of communication provided by the military police special means: traumatic weapons, stun devices, batons, handcuffs, shields, personal photo and video fixation. To carry out special tasks in the battalion for service received armored vehicles. In particular, the detachment of military police to perform tasks in the Syrian Arab Republic, equipped with armored vehicles "Tiger".

    In accordance with the state defense order from 2017 to 2019 to ensure that the military police provided for the purchase of special vehicles patrol military police UAZ-3163-015 AP "Patriot", special vehicles ATNP-5350 on the basis of KAMAZ, intended for the carriage of rapid response teams as well as special vehicles UAZ-Z96221 to transport detainees.

    As for the air component, but now we do a research project, which involves the formation of the military police weapons program. In the course of this work will be considered by the aviation and maritime components of the military police.

    - An important issue of staffing. How are you doing with the selection and training of personnel?

    - In five years, we were able to establish a mechanism for selecting candidates for service in the military police. If the first time we had to recruit candidates for the service, what is called a residual, but now we do it in view of the quality characteristics of future military police. We perform tests on activity, study the moral and physical qualities of the person. In addition, each candidate must have two surety.

    Now our main task - it is training. Currently, your school in a military police there. Officers invited from the troops and carry out their training in military educational institutions of the Ministry of Defence.

    To prepare for this year's warrant officers and officers, we plan to hold the first set of students on the basis of the Combined Arms Academy of the Armed Forces or of the Ryazan Higher Airborne Command School. Cooking warrant will be 2 years and 10 months, and officers - four years. The first part of the training involves military training, the second part will focus on specific disciplines, corresponding to the functions of the military police.

    For the preparation of soldiers and sergeants on contract in Vladikavkaz we plan to create its first training unit - training battalion of the military police. At the same time we do not give up training in the existing district training centers. Regarding the training of military investigators are actively cooperating with the Military University of the Defence Ministry. In addition, the mobilization reserve for military police prepared two military departments - the Moscow Academy of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation and the All-Russian State University of Justice.

    - Given the wide range of tasks, as you have organized cooperation with other law enforcement agencies?

    - We have established cooperation with the Military Prosecutor's Office (military investigation department) on issues of inquiry, maintenance of law and order and military discipline. Active joint work is conducted with the FSB of Russia, especially on the counter-lines. And we work closely with the Ministry of Internal Affairs structures.

    Many tasks are closed on the central administrations of other law enforcement agencies, with whom we have agreements and interaction organized. In particular, the search for cooperation with the General Directorate of Criminal Investigation, on issues of various events involving troops - with the Department to ensure the protection of public order and coordination of interaction with executive bodies of subjects, on combating drug trafficking - with the Department for Control over drug trafficking. As for the troops of the National Guard, we no big event without them we do not do.

    - What do you think the main goal for himself as head of the military police?

    - I have one main goal - to the military police as a new structure within the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation has proved its viability and necessity of existence and came to the level at which the military police of the advanced countries of the world.

    - What would you wish to colleagues on the eve of February 23?

    - I want to congratulate all the servicemen of the military police on the upcoming holiday - the Day of Defender of the Fatherland! And, of course, special greetings to those who are on duty and perform combat missions. They are dependent on the world, not only in our country but throughout the world. I wish you and all military personnel military police strength of spirit, sense of purpose and good luck!

    Apparently south Ossetia military will be embedded as a military force of the Russian federation. Wonder if Abkhazia will end up with the same.

    What has happened is that South Ossetia has placed their military (basically a BTG) under command of the Russian Army based in South Ossetia (4th Military Base - brigade size). The Russian government has also given permission for South Ossetia citizens to enlist in the Russian Military.

    The Abkhazian's have placed their two regular Motor Rifle battalions plus some other regular troops under command of the Russian Army based in Abkhazia (7th Military Base - brigade size plus a S300 regiment). No word yet of Abkhazian citizens being given permission to enlist in the Russian military.
