    A monument to the Hero of Russia pilot Oleg Peshkov was erected at the Khmeimim airbase

    A monument to the Su-2015 pilot Oleg Peshkov, who died in 24, was erected at the Russian Khmeimim airbase in Syria. This was announced by Rear Admiral Igor Kurochkin, Deputy Commander of the Russian Armed Forces Grouping in Syria for Military-Political Work.

    The opening of the monument to the pilot of the front-line bomber Su-24 Oleg Peshkov was timed to coincide with the holiday on February 23. It was installed next to the already standing monuments to the helicopter pilot Ryafagat Khabibulin, who died in 2016 during the liberation of Palmyra, and to the pilot of the Su-25SM attack aircraft, Roman Filipov, who was shot down over Idlib.

    During a working trip to the troops (forces) Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation General of the Army Dmitry Bulgakov arrived in Abakan, Republic of Khakassia, where he checked the logistics of the 5th separate Poznan Red Banner Railway Brigade. The Deputy Minister examined the fleet of automotive and special equipment, the conditions of its storage, maintenance and readiness to perform the tasks set.

    "Based on the decision of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, the Railway troops this year begin construction of the second branch of the Baikal-Amur railway. All ten brigades are leaving for the construction of the section that is currently assigned to the Railway troops from Ulak to Fevralsk-340 km. On the fifth day, the fifth brigade begins to enter the specified area. We must build the second branch of the Baikal-Amur Mainline, " the deputy head of the military department said at a meeting with journalists.

    On behalf of the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, at a solemn ceremony, Army General Dmitry Bulgakov presented the 5th separate Railway Poznań Red Banner Brigade with the Regimental Cup of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

    This badge of military valor was awarded to the brigade for high combat training, selfless military work in the performance of special tasks for the construction of railways, the elimination of the consequences of natural disasters and catastrophes.

    "I am proud to note that the 5th separate Railway Brigade was awarded this badge of military valor, the first in the history of the Railway troops, among the military units and formations of material and technical support of the Armed Forces as a whole! Today, the 5th Brigade is rightfully the flagship of the Railway Troops!»- said the Deputy Minister of Defense, speaking at the award ceremony.

    After visiting the museum of the railway brigade, the Deputy Minister of Defense made a memorable entry in the historical form of the military unit about the presentation of the Regimental Cup of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

    I think this fits in this thread. It is a comparison of before and after of the Russian army. The transformation is impressive.
    NATzO does not have any sort of supremacy that matters over Russia. Maybe it can throw more meat, but that does very little
    with modern hardware. And in terms of hardware Russia has a substantial advantage to the point that NATzO itself is worried.

    The quality of life of Russian servicemen has improved substantially since 2008. Compared to 1990 it is on another plane.

    I will take issue with the this video about the situation in the 1990s. It is not correct that nothing but rot was happening
    under Yeltsin. If that was true, then we would have seen the same situation as in Ukraine. That was the plan of the Yeltsin's
    NATzO handlers, but it flopped. Russian defense industry workers continued to develop new missiles and other tech even
    under conditions of massive wage arrears. These patriots ensured that there was a revival under Putin. So credit cannot
    be given for post 1999 conditions alone.

    NATO was afraid of Russia even back in 2008, when a bunch of army units with equipment from the 70´s and 80´s needed less then 72 hours to annihilate a NATO trained, equipped and certified georgian army.

    The syrian campaign was another eye opener for them. But todays russian army is even better then the one in 2015.

    What´s really frightening for NATO is the fact that the russian forces are still in a transistion process. All the stuff being tested and coming up in the next few years... Twisted Evil
