    Next, Sergei Shoigu briefly summed up the recruitment to educational institutions of the Ministry of Defense.

    This year, more than 15 thousand first-year students have been enrolled in military universities, and from September 1 they will begin their studies. Of those enrolled in universities - 1.5 thousand - participants in a special military operation, most have military awards.

    The training of officers for the Armed Forces has been resumed on the basis of the Donetsk Higher Combined Arms Command School.

    “The interest of young people in the educational institutions of the Navy, the Strategic Missile Forces and the flight universities of the Aerospace Forces has grown significantly. In other universities, we still have the same high competition as it was before,” the Minister of Defense noted.

    In pre-university military educational institutions, the competition was up to 11 people per place.

    “This year the Irkutsk Suvorov School begins its work. I would like to wish the officers, cadets, pupils success in their studies and perseverance in mastering new knowledge. And here I want to draw attention to those who are engaged in education, training, we must make the most of the experience of those who have proven themselves in a special military operation and, of course, who have something to pass on, ”said General of the Army Sergei Shoigu.

    The first of six military hospitals built by specialists of the Military Construction Complex of the Russian Ministry of Defense will be commissioned in November 2023.

    The construction of medical facilities is carried out on behalf of the President of the Russian Federation in order to improve the medical support system of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

    Currently, new medical institutions are being built in the Republic of Dagestan, Sevastopol, Ryazan, Belgorod, Bryansk and Kursk.

    Russian Defence Ministry: General News - Page 7 Empty Surovikin is destined for next.

    Post  JohninMK Fri Sep 08, 2023 5:41 pm

    Not sure where to put this, another stab at what Surovikin is destined for next.

    Finally, all the secret fogs around the fate of General Surovikin have cleared. The last months have been full of rumors, gossip about his arrest, his state of health and other guesses. It's time to figure out which of this turned out to be true.

    Surovikin's fate has found its new path. He will remain in the military field, but with new responsibilities. Now he will have to lead the coordination committee on air defense issues under the council of the Ministry of Defense of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).

    Many might consider this step lower than his previous position as commander-in-chief of the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS). However, this turn should be viewed from a different angle.
    Battle on the Western Border

    It is obvious that events in nearby countries have developed into a real struggle between Russia and the West. It would be strange to think of this as a conflict between two separate countries. Today it has become clear that the struggle is against Western countries as a whole, and Russia is forced to confront them in this difficult situation.

    Western opponents, realizing the failure of all actions, decided to change tactics. Now they are actively using the forbidden toys of the West. This leads to unpredictable consequences and effectiveness.

    Consequently, there is a critical need for effective air defense. Therefore, Russia is forced to prepare its air defense systems.

    The art of defense

    This is where the experience of Sergei Vladimirovich Surovikin comes into play. His renowned mastery of ground defense, called the "impenetrable defense of Surovikin", was a testament to his ability to create effective defense systems. The same systems are needed in the air.

    Coordination of the air defense of the CIS countries is an important step in this direction. It is especially necessary to improve the work of the Belarusian air defense, since it is through its territory that the next unpleasant event can occur.
    Weapons and Enemies

    Moreover, the adversary is already deliberately supplying F-16s to its allies. It is believed that the comedian has negotiated the supply of 51 F-16 aircraft from the Netherlands and Denmark. This is another point that needs to be dealt with.

    All this will be weighed on the shoulders of General Surovikin. His experience and knowledge will allow Russia to more effectively prepare to confront new challenges.

    Even despite his new role, Surovikin still remains the commander-in-chief of the Russian Aerospace Forces on the official website of the Ministry of Defense. On the other hand, the new acting commander-in-chief of the Russian Aerospace Forces, General Viktor Afzalov, only temporarily holds this post.

    Therefore, it is likely that Surovikin will return to his previous duties after completing his work on the steering committee. He was given time to think and develop a strategy on how to deal with new threats.

    this is a political charge and it is the logic next step for a man that have been killing terrorist in Siria sonce 2015

    It is also a necessary step for other soldiers who have distinguished themselves in Ukraine to ascend to higher military positions, which is not possible if the highest positions in the military hierarchy are not changed.

    If it is true, this is a demotion. Next step is retirement.

    Not if it is a temporary assignment... he might have been judged the best suited to the job at hand, so a temporary move sideways.

    Former chief of staff of the Wagner PMC Andrey Troshev will form volunteer units for the military operation in Ukraine. Troshev will oversee communications between volunteers and the Russian Ministry of Defense, Shot writes. Dmitry Peskov said that he is already working in the Ministry of Defense. Putin proposed transferring command of the Wagnerites to Troshin back on June 29, after Prigozhin’s rebellion.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Deputy Minister of Defense Yunus-Bek Yevkurov and Andrei Troshev, the ex-commander of the Wagner PMC with the call sign “Sedoy”. They discussed the formation of volunteer units, including those for work in the zone of military operation in Ukraine . The meeting took place the day before, but the Kremlin press service announced it only today.

    Little is known about the content of the conversation. The presidential press service published a video recording and transcript of the beginning of the meeting.

    “Andrei Nikolaevich, I would like to start our meeting with a conversation with you,” Putin addressed Troshev. — At the last meeting, we talked about the fact that you will form volunteer units that can perform various combat missions, primarily, of course, in the zone of a special military operation. You yourself fought in such a unit for more than a year.”

    According to Putin, Troshin knows what issues need to be “solved in advance so that combat work can proceed in the best and most successful manner.”

    Then the president switched to issues of social support for combatants.

    “We have created the Defenders of the Fatherland Foundation,” the head of state recalled. “And I have said many times and want to emphasize again: regardless of the status of a person who performs or has performed combat missions, social guarantees for everyone must be absolutely the same. For the country, for the Motherland, it makes no difference in what status a person fought and defended the Fatherland. Therefore, we will also talk about this topic today.”

    What Putin talked about with Yevkurov is described in less detail in the transcript on the Kremlin website. “Yunus-Bek Bamatgireevich will talk about how the work is going in general,” the president said.

    It is known that recently Evkurov has been actively traveling to African countries. In August, the Ministry of Defense announced the deputy minister's visit to Libya , and in mid-September he appeared in Mali , Burkina Faso and Niger . In all of the listed countries, the Wagner PMC maintained its presence when its head was Yevgeny Prigozhin , and it also operated in Libya and the Central African Republic .

    What is known about "Sedom"

    Kommersant writes that Troshev is a retired colonel, former chief of staff of the Wagner PMC with the call sign “Sedoy”. He did not support the armed rebellion of the head of the PMC, Yevgeny Prigozhin, which occurred on June 23-24. Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov explained that Andrei Troshev already works in the Ministry of Defense. He was also chairman of the League for the Defense of the Interests of Veterans of Local Wars and Military Conflicts, an organization that provided support for Wagner veterans.

    According to Shot , Troshev “will oversee communications between volunteer structures and the Ministry of Defense.”

    The Rybar Telegram channel, close to the Ministry of Defense, previously wrote that Wagner fighters under the leadership of Troshev had already appeared near Bakhmut. At the same time, the Gray Zone channel, close to the PMC, emphasized that we are talking about fighters who refused to participate in Prigozhin’s rebellion.

    According to EU sanctions documents , Troshev held the position of executive director at the Wagner PMC. He has a “Hero of Russia” star, Fontanka noted. He participated in military operations in Afghanistan and Chechnya .

    Change of leadership of the Wagnerites

    Earlier, Kommersant reported that Vladimir Putin, at a meeting with soldiers of the Wagner PMC in the Kremlin on June 29, offered them to serve under the leadership of Troshev.

    “Many nodded when I said this,” Vladimir Putin told Kommersant special correspondent Andrei Kolesnikov . “And Prigozhin, who was sitting in front and did not see this, said after listening: “No, the guys do not agree with this decision.”

    On June 23, the founder of the Wagner PMC, Yevgeny Prigozhin, accused the Ministry of Defense of attacks on Wagner positions and said that the Wagnerites were going to Moscow to “sort it out . ” On the morning of June 24, PMC forces blocked administrative buildings in Rostov-on-Don. Vladimir Putin issued an address where he called Prigozhin’s actions a “stab in the back” and warned him of the consequences. After negotiations between Yevgeny Prigozhin and President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, Wagner fighters retreated to field camps.

    On August 23, an Embraer Legacy 600, carrying Prigozhin and the commander of the Wagner PMC Dmitry Utkin , crashed in the Tver region.
