    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.

    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:

    https://www.militarynews.ru/story.asp%3Frid%3D1%26nid%3D540285%26lang%3DRU

    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...

    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.

    Post  The_Observer Fri Jan 22, 2021 11:28 pm

    Is Russia's long-term rearmament budget an aggregation of it's annual (acquisition) defense budget or is it a "separate and apart" funding source that is concurrently disbursed alongside the yearly defense budget?

    Pandemics in spite of: why countries of the world have increased the military burden
    SIPRI: Russia entered the top 5 countries in terms of military spending in the world


    The top five states - leaders on the list in 2020 accounted for 62% of all global military spending. The top 5 includes the United States, China, India, Russia and the United Kingdom, according to a SIPRI report released on April 26. China's military spending has risen for the 26th straight year.

    Overall, global military spending increased by 2.6% over the year, while global gross domestic product (GDP) fell by 4.4% ( International Monetary Fund forecast for October 2020). Experts cite the economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic as the reason for the reduction in the second indicator.

    As a result, military spending as a share of GDP - the military burden - reached the global average of 2.4% in 2020, up from 2.2% in 2019. This was the largest increase in military load on an annualized basis since the 2009 global financial and economic crisis.

    While military spending has risen globally, some countries have clearly reallocated some of their planned military spending towards the pandemic response, such as Chile and South Korea. Several other states, including Brazil and Russia, spent significantly less than their original military budgets for 2020, the SIPRI document emphasizes.

    “We can say with some certainty that the pandemic did not have a significant impact on global military spending in 2020,” said Dr Diego Lopes da Silva, Research Fellow at the SIPRI Arms and Defense Expenditure Program. "It remains to be seen whether the countries will maintain this level of military spending during the second year of the pandemic."

    The skyrocketing US military spending continued into 2020. In 2020, U.S. spending on defense reached approximately $ 778 billion, up 4.4% from 2019.

    The United States, as the country with the largest military budget in the world, accounted for 39% of total military spending in 2020. This was the third consecutive year of growth in US military spending after seven years of continuous cuts.

    “The recent increase in US military spending can be primarily attributed to significant investment in research and development, as well as several long-term projects such as modernizing the US nuclear arsenal and large-scale arms purchases,” said Alexandra Marksteiner, a researcher at the SIPRI Arms and Defense Expenditure Program.

    "This reflects the growing concern of the United States about perceived threats from strategic rivals such as China and Russia, as well as the desire of [former US President] Donald Trump 's administration to support what it saw as a depleted US military," Marksteiner added.

    China's military spending, the second-largest in the world, is estimated at $ 252 billion - an increase of 1.9% over 2019 and 76% over the 2011-2020 decade.

    China's spending has grown for 26 consecutive years, the longest period of any country in the SIPRI database.

    "China stands out as the only country in the world with a large military budget to increase its military burden relatively modestly in 2020, despite rising military spending due to positive GDP growth last year," said Dr. Nan Tian, ​​Senior Research Fellow at the Stockholm Institute. ... "China's continued growth in spending is partly due to the country's long-term plans to modernize and increase the state's military power in line with its stated desire to catch up with other major military powers."

    Despite the economic downturn, more and more NATO member states are overfulfilling their military spending targets.

    Almost all NATO members are faced with an increased military burden in 2020. As a result, the 12 members of the alliance spent 2% or more of their GDP on national military forces, which is the Alliance's primary spending target. In 2019, there were only nine such states. France, for example, the eighth largest military budget in the world, crossed the 2% threshold for the first time since 2009.

    “While more NATO members spent more than 2% of GDP on their armed forces in 2020, in some cases this was likely due to the economic fallout of the pandemic rather than a deliberate decision to meet the Alliance's spending target,” said SIPRI Research Fellow on armaments and military expenditures Lopes da Silva.

    Russia's military spending increased by 2.5% in 2020 to $ 61.7 billion, an increase for the second consecutive year.

    Despite this, Russia's military spending in 2020 turned out to be 6.6% lower than originally envisaged: the authors of the report explain this by the influence of COVID-19.

    With $ 59.2 billion, the UK has the fifth largest military budget in 2020. UK military spending is 2.9% higher than in 2019, but 4.2% lower than in 2011.

    Germany increased its spending by 5.2% to $ 52.8 billion, making it the seventh largest military budget in 2020. Germany's military spending is 28% higher than in 2011.

    Overall, military spending in Europe in 2020 increased by 4%.

    Besides China, India ($ 72.9 billion), Japan ($ 49.1 billion), South Korea ($ 45.7 billion) and Australia ($ 27.5 billion) are the states with the largest military spending in the Asia and Oceania region. All four countries increased their military spending between 2019 and 2020 and over the decade 2011-2020.

    Military spending in sub-Saharan Africa increased by 3.4% in 2020 to $ 18.5 billion.The largest growth was seen in Chad (+ 31%), Mali (+ 22%), Mauritania (+ 23%) and Nigeria (+ 29%), all listed countries belong to the Sahel region, as well as Uganda (+ 46%).

    South America's military spending in 2020 fell 2.1% to $ 43.5 billion, largely due to a 3.1% sequestration in defense spending in Brazil, the region's largest military budget.

    The aggregate military spending of 11 countries in the Middle East, for which SIPRI has data, decreased by 6.5% to $ 143 billion.

    Eight of the nine OPEC members cut their military spending in 2020. Angola's spending fell 12%, Saudi Arabia's 10%, Kuwait's 5.9%. Bahrain, which is not an OPEC member, also cut its spending by 9.8%.

    “I would not directly link the military spending of the militarily leading states of the world in 2020 and 2021 with the spread of coronavirus infection. A lot of things are being blamed on this pandemic, " Alexander Burutin, former First Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces , Chairman of the Expert Council of the Defense Committee of the State Duma , comments to Gazeta.Ru on the SIPRI report .

    According to the lieutenant general,

    the increase in expenditures on various military programs is primarily associated with an increase in political instability in the world and a decrease in the level of political interethnic interaction.

    In the lexicon of certain politicians, such unfriendly expressions as “aggressor country”, “enemy”, “murderer”, etc., which two years ago could not have been imagined, have started to appear again. The increase in military spending is a reaction to the growth of military confrontation, some harsh, if not aggressive statements by some political leaders, Burutin said.

    “As far as the United States is concerned, the growth of the military budget is largely associated with the past presidential elections in the United States. In the course of the pre-election race, each of the candidates tried to enlist the support of the national military lobby, thereby pushing the implementation of various kinds of military programs, ”the expert concluded.

    Sounds a little wishy washy to me...

    Russia's military spending increased by 2.5% in 2020 to $ 61.7 billion, an increase for the second consecutive year.

    Despite this, Russia's military spending in 2020 turned out to be 6.6% lower than originally envisaged: the authors of the report explain this by the influence of COVID-19.

    So they reduced planned spending by 6.6%, but the spending was 2.5% higher... but 2.5% of GDP which was lower this year because of Covid 19... if this years GDP is 3% less than it was last year, and might be 6% up next year a shift of almost 10% in one year... doesn't that make the amount spent per year better to just be put in dollar amounts instead of linking them to GDP?

    I realise linking it to GDP makes the amount wealthier countries spend on defence look less insane, but that is hardly the point of releasing such numbers... it should be identifying the insane ones... the ones always pushing for wars and conflicts...

    It is essentially helping these monsters get away with pretending to care about human rights and democracy and peace, when clearly the numbers show the exact opposite.

    Saying Russian defence budgets are going up... they have been about 65 billion for quite some time... I would think 61.7 billion is a little low for a country the size of Russia that has completely upgraded and overhauled its Army and Air Force and is in the process of boosting its navy with world class equipment and weapons that are no longer able to rely on cheap ready made components from other countries as Russia gets cut off from the west.

    The state armaments program has actually been suspended

      As the Vedomosti newspaper reported in an article by Alexei Nikolsky, Dmitry Grinkevich and Inna Sidorkova, “The authorities have revised the principles of procurement for the needs of the armed forces. The State Armaments Program is being replaced by operational tasks”, on November 10, 2022, on the Kremlin’s website, President Vladimir Putin’s instructions were published on providing the Russian Armed Forces for the needs of a special military operation (SMO). These instructions were given following the meeting on November 2 with members of the Coordinating Council (CC) under the government, created for this purpose.
    The government is invited before November 14 to “complete the definition of the target task to ensure the needs of the Armed Forces and other law enforcement agencies during the SMO, as well as determine the deadlines for completing the task. Together with the Ministry of Defense, the Cabinet of Ministers is obliged to establish a feedback between the military and industry and purchase as much equipment and equipment as necessary to meet the "real needs" of the troops at the front. As early as November 11, the White House should submit proposals to ensure control over the spending of funds for these needs.

    The mechanism, which is instructed to create a Constitutional Court under the government, is based on the real needs of the troops, and not on the document supporting the state defense order (SDO) - the state armaments program (SAP), says a source close to the Ministry of Defense. The same was stated to Vedomosti by a top manager of a defense industry enterprise. He confirmed that the current SAP has ceased to be a document on the basis of which it is planned to finance the State Defense Order in the field of procurement of weapons and military equipment (AME; the purchase of items of clothing allowance and medical support, the tasks for which are also now being formed by the Constitutional Court, are not included in the SAP. - “Vedomosti "). In fact, the development of a new SAP has been suspended, since it will be necessary to reconsider priorities based on the experience of the SMO, says the source of Vedomosti, close to the Ministry of Defense.

    Two sources close to the government also confirmed that the actual funding for the needs of the army this year has diverged from the original plan approved for 2022 as part of the budget law. One of them noted that the revision of plans during the year compared to the initial list is a traditional story, characteristic not only in relation to the SAP, but also to other state programs.
    The government has fairly broad powers to redistribute funds from one area of ​​spending to others, including new ones, he added. Indeed, during the year the SAP was adjusted, but only partially, another Vedomosti interlocutor noted.

    Formally, the state program has not been canceled, work on the new plan is also ongoing, said a source close to one of the large enterprises in the defense industry and familiar with the situation. But it is obvious that the current SAP does not meet the needs of the SMO and cannot be considered relevant, he agreed.
    Vedomosti sent inquiries to the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Industry and Trade. The volumes of the state defense order are determined by the current needs of the army, the representative of Rost

    Peacetime tool

    In an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta in September 2021, Former Deputy Chairman of the Collegium of the Military-Industrial Commission (MIC) of Russia, Andrei Yelchaninov, said that a new SAP was beginning to be prepared by arms customers (the Ministry of Defense and other departments). This is happening on the basis of documents on the main directions of development of armaments for a 15-year perspective, as well as on the prospective image of the Armed Forces for 10 years ahead. In addition, the Russian Military-Industrial Commission is preparing an analysis of security threats for 30 years ahead, which is aligned with the forecast of Russia's financial and economic development until 2035, Yelchaninov reported.
    In 2021, all these documents were being prepared to draw up on their basis the SAP for 2023–2033, which should replace the current SAP 2018–2028. (The GPV is drawn up for a 10-year period, but is reviewed every five years). According to Yelchaninov, SAP-2033 should have cost no less than 21-22 trillion rubles, i.e., be at the level of SAP-2028 - 21.7 trillion rubles.

    In 2022, Russia's spending on national defense amounted to 4.679 trillion rubles, follows from the materials for the draft budget for the next three years. This is 1.2 trillion rubles. more than was approved for 2022 - according to the law on the federal budget for the current three-year period, it was planned to spend 3.5 trillion rubles, Vedomosti wrote.
    In the next two years, defense spending will also be higher than expected. In 2023, they will amount to almost 5 trillion rubles, while the current budget law provided for spending 3.6 trillion. According to the draft Guidelines of the Ministry of Finance, in 2024, spending will slightly decrease to 4.6 trillion rubles. In the approved budget for 2022-2024 planned to send 3.8 trillion. Further, defense spending will also continue to decline: in 2025 they will amount to 4.2 trillion.

    The actual halt in the implementation of the SAP and the development of a new one are completely natural and natural, says Mikhail Barabanov, an expert at the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies: “It is clear that all priorities and volumes of purchases need to be changed when conducting a SMO.” The SAP, Barabanov believes, is an attempt to drag the system of Soviet long-term military-technical planning into the current conditions of a completely different political and economic structure. Therefore, all SAPs had to be reviewed, the expert continues: “Well, the directions of revision are obvious - towards urgent requirements to the detriment of long-term programs.”

    New tasks can be formed to meet the urgent needs of the Ground Forces at the expense of the fleet and the Aerospace Forces (not counting reconnaissance systems and aviation weapons, especially high-precision ones), says Viktor Murakhovsky, editor-in-chief of Arsenal of the Fatherland magazine. Andrey Frolov, an expert of the Russian Council on International Affairs, also agrees that the costs of the fleet will be redistributed in favor of the Ground Forces. SMO and partial mobilization showed that the volume of purchases of the same equipment should be a multiple of it, he says. We can also expect an increase in the cost of repairing military equipment, Frolov notes.
    At the same time, R&D, which is close to completion, will not be stopped, the expert is sure.

    The Fleet is one of the main distributors of long-range high precision weapons. It would be stupid to cut the purchase of missile carriers.

    So what they are saying is that during a conflict there are things that get used up more than during normal training, remember the digital training on simulators doesn't use any fuel or ammo and does not result in the wear and tear on guns, or even the use of cleaning equipment to clean barrels large and small... equally artillery barrels don't wear out much during peace time and mainly old ammo stocks are used up in exercises except when new stuff is being tested or training in using new guided ammo is part of the training.

    It makes sense to review what you are buying and what has been getting money spent on and revising that to spending money on things they need and want... small arms ammo, light grenades, both hand held and under barrel launched grenades, as well as other equipment they will be using on the front lines and further back.

    More night vision equipment, anti drone weapons as well as drone weapons etc etc that are not often used during peacetime.

    Eliminating production for calibres no longer in use and converting them to calibres that are in use is a good way to boost production.

    Ironically it sounds like this is something the west should be doing because they are running out of things to send Kiev suggesting their own stocks were low or are now depleted, but instead they will ignore common sense and just add the costs of the extra equipment needed on top of existing spending because those guys stealing money from the system wont take a pay cut now...

    This is a good chance to evaluate what is working well and what they could use more of... with a new defensive line and the potential for the Orcs to move forward into urban areas the potential of suicide drones with small warheads that kill the target but do little other damage seems to be significant.
