    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.

    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)

    New Artillery brigade (227th) formed in the Southern Command. Probably for the 49th Combined Arms Army which does not have such a unit.

    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!

    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.

    In the Ground Forces, they thoroughly approach the organization and conduct of combat training activities

    All of us are witnessing how the means of armed struggle and the tactics of military operations develop over time. All this, undoubtedly, requires improving the training of servicemen and military formations of the Ground Forces. Colonel-General Alexander Lentsov, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Land Forces of the Russian Federation

    At the heart of the activities of the Main Command of the Ground Forces is a set of interrelated tasks to guide the construction and training of troops, territorial defense and peacekeeping activities in the Ground Forces. In addition, many other problems are being solved. The main ones are the general management of the combat training of the Ground Forces, the organization of training specialists for our most numerous type of Armed Forces, the development of statutory, program and planning documents.
    The main command of the Land Forces, based on the analysis of the state of combat training in units and military units, develops and organizes organizational and methodological instructions on the organization of operational, mobilization and combat training, inspections of military command and control agencies and ground forces, which are the starting Point for further planning the training of troops (forces) military districts.
    This document determines the main areas for training troops, the results that must be achieved to ensure the fulfillment of tasks assigned to the merger and association, as well as the forms and ways to achieve the required level of training.
    The complex of measures for managing combat training includes also monitoring its progress and rendering assistance to the relevant commanders and management bodies in carrying it out. To this end, the officers of the Main Command of the Land Forces go to military districts, organizations and military units, where they conduct classes on the subjects of instruction, study, analyze and generalize best practices.

    Training of specialists for the Army is one of the most important functions of the High Command

    Based on the materials of the work in the troops, as well as the experience gained by formations, military units and units of the Ground Forces during the exercises, sudden checks of combat readiness, performance of tasks during combat training, the proposals and requirements are developed and promptly submitted to the troops in the Main Command of the Ground Forces On the improvement of combat training, including taking into account the receipt of new models of military equipment.
    Everybody understands perfectly well that without the trained specialists it is impossible to fulfill the tasks assigned to the troops qualitatively. The sudden military readiness checks conducted over the past few years, joint strategic exercises in various theaters of military operations, a comparative analysis of the preparedness of servicemen based on the results of joint exercises conducted with the divisions of the armies of foreign states show the high level of training of our junior specialists. However, solid theoretical knowledge and practical skills of personnel do not appear on their own, but are achieved by the intense and painstaking work of many and many officials and management bodies.
    Training of specialists for the Army is one of the most important functions of the High Command.
    Based on the concept of the construction and development of the Ground Forces, the plan for the formation of new formations in the military districts, as well as the analysis of the need for troops in junior specialists, a list of military specialties is determined, according to which specialists are trained in the district training centers and training military units. So, in the period from 2013 to 2016, more than 157,000 junior specialists for the Army were trained in these training units.
    It should also be noted that all the uniform statutory documents of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, used in daily activities and training of troops, have been developed in the Main Command of the Ground Forces or with the direct participation of its specialists.
    Literally over the last few years, the Military Committees of the Land Force, the Battle Manuals of the Special Forces of the Ground Forces, the Manual on the organization of work of the command and control agencies of the units, the organization of comprehensive support for the operations of formations, military units and units of the Ground Forces have been revised by the officers of the Main Command. Programs of combat training for units carrying out tasks in arctic conditions, mountainous and highlands are also developed.
    In 2016, the research work on the military-scientific justification for new approaches to the formation of combat training programs for the units of the Land Forces, staffed by military men under military service under the contract, was completed. Based on the developed approaches, a new training program has been developed for this category of servicemen, which is currently being tested in military district formations.
    With the arrival in the troops of modern and modernized models of military equipment and weapon systems, corrections and necessary changes are made to the conditions for the performance of shooting and driving exercises, collections of standards. For retraining for new models of military equipment, as early as 2017, two programs have been developed and sent to the troops.
    Analysis and generalization of advanced experience in the preparation of the units of the Ground Forces are carried out by special structural units of the Main Command of the Ground Forces. The result of their work are methodical guides and recommendations on the order of conducting classes on combat training subjects, methods of conducting classes on the most complex topics. In 2016, the military sent 15 methodological recommendations for combat training. Taking into account the experience of military operations in the Syrian Arab Republic, strategic command and staff exercises in 2017, it is planned to send to the troops no less methodological material than in the past. In total, starting in 2013, in the Main Command of the Ground Forces, 93 statutory, program and methodological documents were developed and sent to the military districts for the daily management and training of troops (forces) in the military districts.
    It should be noted that the role of the Main Command of the Land Forces in the organization of the activities of the troops (forces) of the military districts does not end there. In the process of fulfilling the tasks assigned by the leadership of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation to the Ground Forces, the Main Command carries out other functions in the interests of organizing and carrying out measures for the construction and development of the Ground Forces.
