    The press informs about the plans of the Ministry of Finance to reduce the number of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and increase the length of service for military retirement

    A material was released in the press, which tells about the proposal of the Ministry of Finance to conduct another "optimization" in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Russia.

    The Izvestia article says that Anton Siluanov's department is proposing to increase the retirement age for servicemen, as well as to reduce the total number of servicemen in the ranks of the Armed Forces. Referring to the document, a copy of which is reportedly available in Izvestia's editorial office , journalists write that the document contains an initiative to reduce every tenth serviceman.
    - In this case, up to 100 thousand people in the ranks of the Russian Armed Forces may be laid off. It is stated that "a transfer to civilian vacancies can be made for those whose service is not related to the performance of combat missions."
    - The initiative to increase the length of service involves the following: to increase it from 20 years to 25 years, and to exclude from it the period of study at a military school.
    - But that's not all. The Ministry of Finance, according to the aforementioned Russian publication, proposes to remove the norm, which implies an annual increase in military pensions by 2% above the inflation rate in the country.
    - It is also added that the Ministry of Finance proposes to extend similar initiatives to other law enforcement agencies. In particular, we are talking about the Russian Guard.
    - It is noted that all these proposals are presented for the sake of "saving budget funds."

    NOTE: read on the Military of Defense website this morning that after a through review of Finances proposal, the Defense Ministry rejected them all. The battle for the Ruble continues.

    This is the answer from MoD:

    Last attempt from the 5th column to undermine Russia, just when things are getting critical and the rearmament is in full swing? Have they overplayed their hand with this one? We will see...

    Ministry of Finance being called out left and right for trying again to implement all the "cost effectiveness" measures that were already tested many times with disastrous results for the armed forces:

    At this moment when the West is badly losing the peace and feels the urging temptation of unleashing a big war, only the constant military build-up and modernization of the Russian armed forces is delaying their plans, to show weakness now would be a fatal error. Russia needs to finally get these 5th column idiots out of any position of responsibility as if we were in 1938...

    They been trying to promote same thing for a few years now with it being told "no". In other words, it ain't gonna happen. And they are making enemies everywhere.

    Finance ministry may end up getting reshuffled again.

    The bean counters are just trying to do their jobs. I agree with their idea that the military school period (4-5 years) should not count against the 20-year pension eligibility and that any jobs civilians could be doing, should be doing.

    They need a hard purge and not reshuffling. These clowns are brazenly acting like 5th columnists so they should be treated accordingly.

    If Putin was the tyrant that the NATzO fake stream media claims, then such behaviour would simply not occur. Time for Putin to live up
    to his faked up image and slice off another western parasitic tentacle inside Russia.
