    My take on the present military personnel totals in the Russian Ministry of Defense:

    officers and warrants. In 2016 Deputy Defense Minister Pankov stated that when they talked about military staffing level ( ie, 95%), they were referring to the cadre of officers and warrants not the overall total. (218,000)
    contract servicemen (405,000)
    conscripts (228,000)
    military school cadets (62,000 – 1,300 foreign = 60,700)
    - University students taking military training at Civilian Higher Education establishments Military Departments (96 – ROTC similar). Of the last posted total of 61,200 (2018-2019), 10,500 were studying to become Regular Officers while the rest become Reserve Officers, Warrants or Sergeants upon graduation (provided there is not a shortage and Regular service is required). Apparently this training period and reserve service counts against or in lieu of national service (conscription). Not sure how this group counts against the authorized military totals.

    The above totals would give an active operational force of ~850,000 and a potential overall total of 910-970,000. A year ago, the Head of Mobilization and Organization had stated the active total was just over 830,000. When you factor in another planned 70,000 contractors and 10,000 or so Officers then you would be over the planned authorized strength of 1,013,628.

    Defense Ministry cuts severance pay for conscripts

    The severance pay for conscripts dismissed from military service will be reduced to one salary and will amount to 2 thousand rubles. This follows from the draft order of the Ministry of Defense posted on the federal portal of draft regulatory documents.

    The draft order should amend Article 160 "The procedure for providing monetary allowances to servicemen of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and providing them and their family members with separate payments." At present, this article determines that when conscripted into the reserve, conscripts receive an allowance in the amount of two salaries for a military position. In the new edition, "two salaries" will be replaced by "one salary".

    Thus, conscripts discharged to the reserve, instead of 6 thousand, which consisted of the salary for the last month and two additional ones, will receive 4 thousand, i.e. one salary for the last month and one additional.

    The military department said that the draft of the new order was prepared in order to implement the provisions of the Federal Laws of March 1, 2020 and "will not change the procedure for providing monetary allowances to servicemen, as well as providing them with separate payments, established by the Russian Ministry of Defense."

    Earlier, the Russian government set the size of monthly salaries in accordance with the military positions held by servicemen doing military service on conscription in the RF Armed Forces, at 2,000 rubles.

    NOTE: in case you were curious of what a Russian conscript got paid. Not many years ago the figure was 1,000 rubles.

    Apparently the 2020 Fall draft will be for 128,000 conscripts as opposed to 132,000 in 2019. Official start date is October 1st although the Spring draft was over a month late starting due to Covid. The Spring Draft was for 135,000 conscripts. Last years (2019) totals were 135,000 (Spring) and 132,000 (Fall).

    Russian troops in 2020 joined 30 thousand contractors

    Over the past eight years, the list number of this category of military personnel has more than doubled. According to the results of the current year, the number of military personnel under the contract was increased by 30 thousand people.

    This category of military personnel is currently the most numerous. The number of contract soldiers is almost twice (1.Cool higher than the number of conscripts.

    To date, military personnel under the contract are fully staffed, the positions of sergeants; crews of submarines and surface ships serving in the far sea zone; military units and units involved in peacekeeping tasks; special purpose units, as well as most of the positions of drivers and snipers, a number of positions related to the operation and provision of modern weapons and equipment.

    Special attention is paid to the quality of acquisition. Monitoring data and sociological studies show that a modern contractor is a motivated young man under the age of 30, who has made an informed choice of military service, has a professional education, as well as military service experience and class qualifications.

    Only recently, orders of the Minister of Defense established additional monthly allowances: 50 percent of the official salary-for soldiers and sergeants serving in positions from 1 to 4 tariff category; 30 percent of the official salary-for drivers of vehicles of categories C, D and E; in the amount of 100 to 120 percent of the official salary-for certain categories of military personnel of flight and flight test personnel, crews of warships and boats, Strategic Missile Forces (from July 1, 2020).

    As a result of the introduction of these incentive payments, the amount of monetary allowances for military personnel on average increased from 3.5 to 23 thousand rubles. These positive changes affected about 200 thousand military personnel.

    In Russia, the number of military personnel who are wanted for unauthorized abandonment of a military unit decreased by more than 10% in 2020. This was reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the Main Military Investigation Directorate (GVSU) of the IC of Russia on Thursday, February 25.

    “The result of the work in 2020 was a 10.3% decrease in the number of servicemen wanted for unauthorized abandonment of military service,” the agency quoted the agency as saying.

    So, over the past year, 288 deserters were found. Including 115 people voluntarily arrived at the military investigative bodies of the UK, and 173 were detained during search activities.

    At the end of August last year, Deputy Defense Minister of Russia Andrei Kartapolov, speaking at a round table at the Army-2020 forum, announced the eradication of bullying and "barracks hooliganism" in the country's Armed Forces. According to him, this influenced the desire of the Russians to do military service and the quality of the service itself.

    According to Colonel-General Sergei Kuralenko, Chief of the Main Directorate of the Military Police of the Ministry of Defense, this was achieved thanks to the well-coordinated work of the military police, the military-political department of the defense department and unit commanders.

    Shoigu spoke about the spring conscription in 2021

    Spring conscription into the Russian army will begin on April 1, 2021. This was announced on Thursday, March 4, at a conference call at the country's Defense Ministry, by the head of the department, Sergei Shoigu. According to him, it is planned to send 122 thousand people to the Armed Forces of the country.

    The minister pointed out that unprecedented measures were taken in 2020, thanks to which the conscription campaign and the staffing of the troops were carried out efficiently in the context of the spread of the new coronavirus infection.

    As the head of the department recalled, the military commissariats were equipped with all the necessary medical equipment, and at the points of collection, reception and dispatch of conscripts, the mask regime was strictly observed and enhanced disinfection was carried out. All conscripts received personal protective equipment.

    In addition, upon arrival at the military units, everyone underwent a two-week quarantine, he said, urging to use the experience gained over the past year during the upcoming spring conscription campaign.

    Shoigu demanded that the commanders of the military districts and the Northern Fleet vaccinate the employees of the military commissariats who take part in the conscription procedure. To this work, according to him, it is necessary to admit only those who have been vaccinated and have antibodies to infection.

    “Military commissariats should organize a remote study of conscripts. To carry out psychological selection in accordance with new methods and recommendations (2021), ”the minister said.

    Autumn conscription took place from October 1 to December 31, 2020.

    During a month of information and propaganda work, the military personnel should interest as many young people between the ages of 18 and 40 in serving in the Northern Fleet as possible, so that they can provide their families with decent living conditions, and earn benefits and other benefits provided for by Russian legislation for workers in the Far North and in the Arctic.

    In all regions where the troops and forces of the Northern Fleet are stationed, there are special allowances to the monetary allowance, as well as preferential calculation of seniority — from 1.5 to 2 years per year, which allows northerners to count on early receipt of a military pension, which is paid already when they reach 20 years of preferential service, i.e. for 10-13 years of actual service in the Far North and in the Arctic.

    Putin signed a decree on conscription

    This spring, 134,650 people will be drafted into the army. Such a decree was signed by the president.

    The call will last from April 1 to July 15. We are talking about citizens from 18 to 27 years old who are not in the reserve and are subject to conscription.

    Recall that a little more were drafted into the army last spring - 135 thousand recruits.

    NOTE: variance between Shoigu's and Putin's announcements must indicate the difference between those conscripts entering the Defense forces as opposed to those conscripts for the Security forces (National Guard, FSO and Emercon troops)

    Since the beginning of this year, about 4 thousand people have already signed a contract to serve in the formations and military units of the Southern Military District( SE), only in March more than 1.5 thousand people decided to become professional military personnel.

    Half of those who have signed a contract with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation are conscripted military personnel, which indicates the popularity of military service among conscripts who have decided to continue their military career.

    Among those who entered military service under a contract in the troops of the Southern Military District, more than 2.5 thousand people have higher and secondary vocational education.

    The most popular professions are the driver of category C, D, E and mechanic-driver, which are about half of all those who signed the contract.

    Candidates have the opportunity to choose from more than 100 different specialties in combined arms associations, in the Black Sea Fleet, as well as in formations and military units of the Air Force and Air Defense association.

    This year, specialists of the personnel service of the selection points of citizens, military commissariats and military units and formations for the Southern Military District troops plan to recruit more than 17 thousand military personnel under the contract.

    Noting with satisfaction the stable, planned supply of weapons and military equipment, General of the Army Sergei Shoigu noted the need to ensure the competent operation of new models by specialists in the troops (forces). In this regard, in the military department, the approaches to the further manning of crews for especially complex equipment have changed significantly. “Our report to the Supreme Commander-in-Chief was supported,” the Minister of Defense said. - Proceeding from this, we are increasing the rate of recruitment by contract servicemen and officers of those positions that we intended to recruit closer to 2025–2030. Now this program is optimized for us, and in 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024 we actually have to recruit an additional 14.8 thousand contract soldiers and officers every year. "

    More than 800 people plan to recruit to the mobilization reserve in the Sverdlovsk region

    EKATERINBURG, August 11. / TASS /. More than 800 people are planned to be recruited into the mobilization manpower reserve in the Sverdlovsk region in 2021. This was announced on Wednesday at a press conference in the Ural regional information center TASS by the acting military commissar of the region, Colonel Sergei Chirkov.

    "Work has been organized and is actively being carried out on the selection of citizens arriving in reserve to conclude a contract on stay in the mobilization human reserve. At the moment, there are more than 40 people and it is necessary to recruit more than 800 by the end of 2021," he said.

    Chirkov added that the recruitment to the mobilization reserve has been going on in the Sverdlovsk region since 2019. Citizens who have entered into a contract can be involved in activities for operational, combat and mobilization training. Each reservist who has signed a contract receives payments that vary from three to 10 thousand rubles, depending on the position and rank in the classroom and up to 50 thousand rubles in fees.

    People who have previously completed military service can become reservists. Each person, when included in the reserve, receives a military position. Women are not being recruited into the mobilization manpower reserve, according to Chirkov.

    NOTE: the lack of a "ready reserve" remains a major weakness of the Russian military. There have been work but it is of low priority financially.

    In the south of Russia, a combat army reserve composition of 38 thousand people is being formed

    By the end of August in the Southern Military District they are going to form a combat army reserve composition - BARS. This is a kind of second front from the storerooms, which will be called up in the first place in an emergency. For example, if there is a threat of armed conflict or aggression against our country. In peacetime, reservists will be trained at military training, and all the conditions of their temporary service, including financial ones, will be prescribed in a special contract.

    BARS in the south of Russia is planning to gather a considerable - 38 thousand people. Judging by the words of the head of the organizational and mobilization department of the Southern Military District Konstantin Zapatotsky, it will be staffed not according to the principle of "taking everyone in a row", but after a strict selection of candidates. This is what the district headquarters is doing now. Each of the reservists will then be awarded a contract. The state guarantees them certain payments corresponding to the military rank, position, duration of temporary service and the nature of the tasks performed there. "So, for three days in the classroom, an officer will receive up to 10 thousand rubles. A soldier-sergeant - up to 5 thousand rubles. For 30 days at a military training camp, an officer will receive from 30 to 75 thousand rubles, a soldier - up to 25 thousand rubles. ", - explained Zapatotsky.

    According to him, at the conclusion of the first contract, depending on the time of stay in BARS provided for there, the reservist is entitled to a one-time payment: to the officer - up to 66 thousand rubles, to the soldier-sergeant - up to 39 thousand rubles. In addition, storekeepers will be provided with free medical care, and in force majeure circumstances - with insurance payments. "The reservist will be protected from all sides, just like the current career soldier," Zapatotsky explained. And one more important point - the "temporary military man" retains the main place of work during the army training session.

    The function of the reservists at the headquarters of the district also seems to have been decided. The head of the district's organizational department said that among the tasks assigned to him would be the protection and defense of especially important military and state facilities, maintaining law and order, and eliminating the consequences of natural disasters.

    Now in the Southern Military District they are preparing a base for the deployment of reservists. Zapatocki claims that it will meet the highest standards. On this base, they will conduct theoretical classes and organize their practical training, including in shooting from all types of small arms, driving training, etc.

    It was not by chance that the Southern Military District was chosen as a place for the formation of a combat army reserve staff. In the past, there was a mobilization manpower reserve in this district - about 400 people. And the Rostov region was a kind of pioneer in working with such people. Six years ago, its commissariat participated in an experiment to introduce a new system of manning troops with citizens who had signed a contract to stay in the mobilization manpower reserve. The first unit from the reservists was then the motorized rifle company of the territorial troops.

    The military commissar of the region, Colonel Igor Yegorov, said that it was staffed with 116 Cossacks from the Great Don Army. According to the officer, this unit is effectively used in various exercises, and the Cossacks are successfully performing combat training missions there. "In our region, the governor personally controls this selection. Our region has about 5 thousand people reservists. This is not a military secret. Each municipality has its own task and reports on the progress of its implementation," the military commissar explained.

    I always wondered how large are today's units in the Russian army, personnel wise.
    Is there a source which can clarify how many personnel there is in an average MR regiment? Tank regiment, Arty regiment, AD regiment? And also the same for MR, tank, arty, AD brigades, since those are still around to some extent?

    How big are special ops brigades or Missile brigades?

    One can never find even half decent personnel numbers. It's always just tanks and vehicles, no one seems to care about personnel numbers. Very Happy

    None that I'm aware of, Russians are big on keeping things secret and also don't seem to be as stuck on standard TO&E's.

    Units of the country's Combat Army reserve (BARS) have arrived at the Kadamovsky combined-arms training ground in the Rostov region to participate in camp training camps. The first BARS units started training on September 22 this year.

    In the regions of the deployment of the 8th Combined Arms Army of the Southern Military District, units of the territorial defense forces are being formed, which will become part of the BARS.

    "Citizens who are in the reserve, who have expressed a desire to voluntarily conclude a contract with the Russian Armed Forces on staying in the reserve, should be kept in the most prepared mobilization state. This is achieved by regularly attracting them to combat training classes in the field, as part of units, " the commander of the Southern Military District troops stressed.

    Reservists will be trained at the training ground to ensure the protection and defense of particularly important military and state facilities.

    For a comfortable stay of reservists, an autonomous field camp with leisure rooms, showers, a dining room, a bath and laundry complex has been deployed. The places for living are equipped with heaters, televisions and equipped with the necessary equipment.

    Also, work is currently underway to select citizens for BARS. The state guarantees appropriate payments to reservists. So, for three days in the classroom, an officer will receive up to 10 thousand rubles, a sergeant-soldier up to 5 thousand rubles. For 30 days of stay at military training camps, an officer will receive from 30 to 75 thousand rubles, a soldier up to 25 thousand rubles.

    More than 127 thousand people will be drafted into the army in the fall

    On October 1, the autumn conscription begins in Russia, 127 thousand people are planned to be drafted into the army. Colonel-General Yevgeny Burdinsky, Chief of the Main Organizational and Mobilization Directorate of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces, told journalists about this at a briefing at the General Staff on September 30.

    "The draft commissions begin their work on October 1, 2021 in all constituent entities of the Russian Federation, with the exception of municipalities, where the draft is held once a year," the General Staff noted.

    A total of 127 thousand recruits are planned to be sent to the troops.

    When organizing and conducting the conscription of citizens for military service this fall, they will focus on the prevention of coronavirus infection and other seasonal diseases (ARVI, flu, tonsillitis). According to Burdinsky, military commissariats have been provided with everything necessary in advance, about 5 million medical masks and more than 200 thousand test systems have been delivered.

    As noted in the General Staff, in the spring more than 134 thousand people were called up and sent to the troops for military service.

    In June, the Russian Armed Forces reported that currently the problem of draft evaders from military service is not serious, the number of such cases has been declining for several years. Thanks to the legislation, it is much easier for citizens to undergo military service by conscription than to avoid it under a far-fetched pretext.

    On May 26, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law according to which conscripts who have non-health grounds for postponing or exemption from military service are allowed not to undergo compulsory medical examination.

    NOTE: 2020 Fall draft was for 128,000 recruits.
