    Shoigu announced the formation of 12 military units and divisions in the Western Military District against the backdrop of the intention of Sweden and Finland to join NATO

    According to the head of the defense department, this year it is planned to supply more than two thousand units of modern weapons and military equipment to the units of the Western Military District.

    Tension continues to grow in the area of ​​responsibility of the Western Military District. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is taking measures of adequate countermeasures. This was stated by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu at the Board of the Russian Defense Ministry.

    “Under these conditions, we are actively improving the combat composition of the troops. By the end of the year, 12 military units and divisions will be formed in the Western Military District,” he said.

    He also added that the organizational measures are synchronized with the supply of modern weapons and military equipment to the Russian troops. It is expected that this year the ZVO will receive more than two thousand units of such samples.

    In addition, Sergei Shoigu said that NATO is currently conducting a series of exercises "Defender of Europe" with the participation of up to forty thousand military personnel from thirty countries of the alliance. The main feature of the maneuvers is the transfer of a full-fledged division from the USA to the European continent.

    Apparently a new Russian Special Purpose (Spetsnaz) brigade was or is being formed to use UAV's to track down and destroy the Western artillery systems being given to Ukraine. Makes you wonder if there are not advanced UAV's coming out of Iran to be used in the SMO. The two that are rumored are a long range system that carries 4 AGM's or 8 bomblets and a suicide or kamikaze drone for wave attacks. Not definite yet of the accuracy here but will continue to search.

    There aren't any drones coming from Iran. It turned out to be civil airline spare parts.

    US backtracks on claims Russia is buying Iranian drones.

    Russia has a range of medium sized drones that can carry ATGMs and custom designed reduced size munitions of a range of new types already displayed at airshows and arms shows... why would they need Iranian drones...

    Having special forces units trained and equipped especially for hunting down specific targets will be very useful... whether it is artillery or weapons or drugs being transported in peace time or during war this new unit will be very interesting and will likely get a range of different drone types like HALE or MALE drones.

    In addition to ATGMs having various munitions and weapons would be useful.

    The orcs have had artillery vehicles on the front line for a while apparently, including the new German guns but they are suffering from, it seems they want better drone resources because those Turkish drones do a good job but not against modern air defences, so the targets they are hitting are bridges and jails and market squares... fixed locations of known coordinates because they have no means of finding targets for themselves...

    Formation of volunteer battalions in Russia and Tatarstan

    The Tatarstan business resource "BUSINESS Online" has published an article by Stanislav Shemelov and Maxim Kirillov "The word" battalion "is too exaggerated here": how nominal units replace mobilization in Russia. “Timer” caught up with “Alga”, at the weekend it was already being thrown into the fields of the NVO,” which says that four months ago, the Russian regions announced the creation of personalized battalions to participate in a special military operation in Ukraine. Each of them is formed exclusively according to the territorial, compatriotic principle. At the moment, the training camp took place in about 40 republics and regions. Our sources report that Tatarstan has formed two large battalions and is already preparing them to be sent to carry out tasks.

    About how the rest of the regional military enlistment offices are coping and what secret weapon of the Tuvans should be used by the fighters of "Alga" and "Timer" - in the material "BUSINESS Online".

    Chechnya was one of the first in the country, even before the start of a special military operation, to form nominal military units on a compatriotic basis. The “Kadyrovtsy” (as they were nicknamed by the people) participated in the hostilities on the territory of the LDNR almost from the first days. In particular, we are talking about SOBR and OMON "Akhmat" detachments, named after the father of the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov, the "South" battalion and the 141st motorized regiment named after. Akhmat-Khadji Kadyrov. In terms of media coverage, these military formations have probably become the most popular.

    The main feature of the units is that at first they were formed only from the inhabitants of Chechnya. Soon this idea began to spread widely to other regions. Moreover, the initiative, as it is commonly believed, was born from below. Bashkortostan was next in the campaign - the formation of the first battalion named after the legendary military leader of the times of the Great Patriotic War Minigali Shaimuratov was announced back in May by the chairman of the republican organization "Veterans of the Marine Corps and Special Forces of the Navy" Alik Kamaletdinov, who later became Radiy Khabirov's adviser on interaction with military personnel. A little later, in June, "Veterans of the airborne troops and special forces of Bashkortostan" announced the birth of the second battalion - already the name of the paratrooper Alexander Dostavalov, a native of Ufa, who died during the second Chechen campaign.

    The leadership of Bashkortostan as a whole should be given credit - Khabirov is one of the first (more precisely, one of the few) who visited the DPR in the spring, and later the LPR. He also takes an active part in the life of personalized battalions: either he personally sends Bashkir volunteers to the training ground, or he himself arrives there to ride and shoot from the BMP. In this sense, we can say that Khabirov actively adheres to the agenda of the SVO, which cannot be said, for example, about officials from other regions who try to be less visible on this topic.

    Behind Bashkortostan, the Perm and Kirov authorities became the next creators of personalized battalions. They announced the recruitment of volunteers for the Parma and Vyatka detachments, respectively. Just make a reservation: "Parma" is far from being a battalion, but a motorized rifle company of about 90 people. But after it, in the Perm Territory, they began to form tankers into the Hammer battalion (about 160 people). Interestingly, in the Kama region, the names of the battalions bear the names of popular local basketball and hockey clubs.

    Kadyrov announced the completion of the creation of a new motorized rifle regiment

    The head of the Chechen Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov , announced the completion of the formation of a new motorized rifle regiment, which is part of the 42nd motorized rifle division, TASS reports with reference to Kadyrov's Telegram channel.

The regiment is part of the 42nd motorized rifle division. Starting today, the military personnel of the new unit can begin full-fledged service,” the head of Chechnya wrote.

    Kadyrov noted that the regiment was completed in the shortest possible time. According to him, against the backdrop of the ongoing special operation, the number of people wishing to become military personnel is growing.

    Earlier, Kadyrov posted on his Telegram channel a video of sending another plane with fighters to the zone of a special military operation in Ukraine.

    Prior to this, Kadyrov stated that he considered it necessary to transfer all the military to a reinforced version of service. The politician said that during his meeting with the commanders of the power units of the region, the ongoing special operation became the main topic.
