    Well, Shoigu and now this dude make clear that there is a clear separation between
    the real military part of the MoD, fulfilled by the General Staff, and the procurement/
    bureaucracy part, which is fullfilled by the Minister and his crew.

    With the change of the head of the defense department, predictable purges began in the Ministry of Defense: including in relation to people who were somehow soiled in unpleasant episodes. This began with the arrest of Timur Ivanov , and now, apparently, an active cleansing of the defense department has begun.

    We confirm the investigative measures against Yuri Kuznetsov (https://t.me/Mestb_Dobroj_Voli/11146) , the former head of the 8th service (protection of state secrets), who now heads the main personnel department of the RF Ministry of Defense: Kuznetsov was no longer at work today.

    As far as we know, it was Kuznetsov’s activities as head of the state secrets protection service that came under the investigation’s attention, and not his personnel affairs.

    What exactly we are talking about, what episodes are being incriminated, is unclear at this stage. Perhaps we are talking about negligence and insufficient work to ensure the security of information (after all, “leaks”, including documents of special importance, are, alas, a reality).

    From intel Slava telegram channel.


    🇷🇺 Alexey Dyumin will oversee issues of the military-industrial complex, sports and the State Council in the Presidential Administration. Nikolai Patrushev will deal with shipbuilding issues. Dmitry Peskov reported this

    He also commented on the appointment of Sergei Shoigu to the post of Secretary of the Security Council. According to him, this is a high government post with a wide range of tasks, great responsibility and direct contact with the president: “There is no fear in the Kremlin that personnel changes in the Ministry of Defense could bring disorganization to the Russian troops.”

    Dyumin was the general in charge of the operation to reunite Crimea and has been the governor of Tula since 2016.

    I hope that Patrushev will finally manage to solve many of the issues that cause delays or problems to shipbuilding.

    The RF IC confirmed the detention of the head of the personnel department of the Ministry of Defense Kuznetsov

    ▪He is suspected of receiving a bribe on an especially large scale (Part 6 of Article 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
    ▪According to the investigation, in 2021-2023, as the head of the 8th Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Kuznetsov received a bribe from representatives of commercial structures for performing certain actions in their favor.
    ▪During the searches, funds in rubles and foreign currency in the amount of more than 100 million rubles, gold coins, collectible watches and luxury items were discovered and seized.
    ▪Based on the investigator’s petition, the court chose a preventive measure in the form of detention for Kuznetsov.

    From intel Slava telegram channel:

    🇷🇺 Belousov made public statements.

    Main:

    – The primary issue in my post is to provide weapons to the Russian Armed Forces groups in the SMO

    – We need to preempt the Ukrainian Armed Forces, we need to develop new methods of combat operations

    – The primary task is to recruit the RF Armed Forces (we are not talking about mobilization)

    – The most pressing issue now is the supply of ammunition, missiles, UAVs, electronic warfare equipment to troops in the SMO zone

    – There are issues with timely payment of allowances to military personnel and their housing provision

    – Military education needs to be addressed as a matter of priority; certain problems have accumulated here

    – Putin has set the task of ensuring the integration of the economy of the Russian Armed Forces into the country’s economy, which involves increasing the efficiency of military spending

    – I am fully aware of my responsibility. Before the country, before the Russian people, before the President of the Russian Federation

    – I will do my best to solve the assigned tasks, and if necessary, even my life

    FSB is needed there for sure

    Pella,  Zvezda engines, Admiralty shipyards, and maybe even Amur and Severnaya all need to be investigated

    Delays, bad designs that require redesign, no engines even after being paid, mysterious accidents, all need to be investigated and the ones caught doing sabotage arrested and imprisoned with high fines

    Sometimes accountants and economists get people killed, because they prefer to spend less on a vehicle or save money

    But the reality is when war becomes industrial as this one, and is involving the resources of the whole nation

    The accountants are absolutely needed, to make decisions between necessary and unnecessary expenses

    And if something can protect the troops , or strategy can be changed to reduce loss of life

    Then so be it

    McNamara for the US calculated sortie rates, and maximized bomber sorties - he got a lot of bomber crews killed, but he saved many more lives on the ground for his men

    That's the thinking we need , economic murder on a mass scale

    You can hate me for saying it, but it will save our guys and will provide victory at an economical rate

    The SMO has stress tested the Russian military in many, often unexpected areas, two of which are the tendencies in large organisations for people to be promoted until they reach a level of incompetence and a temptation to help their friends with nepotism or for financial reward.

    Under normal circumstances it is often difficult to get rid of such people, often the only way being to promote them to roles where they have less or no actual power.

    But being at war, otherwise known as a SMO, is a powerful force for changes which always start in the sharp end where the deficiencies are exposed first, in this case the officer corps. Hence the removal of sundry senior officers of which it is likely that we have only been told of a few. Now, 2 years in, the issues in the MoD and its supply chains are becoming much clearer, exposed by the increased stresses now being felt by the needs of the frontlines, the sharp end that can no longer be hidden.

    I think that it is fair to assume from the new appointments that have been made by the Kremlin that a decision has been made to sort it out, driven at a tactical level to get the products the military needs out of the factories at the right time but also perhaps more importantly at a strategic level. By this I mean Russia's need to extract the maximum valid output from its limited but growing skilled technical workforce and production facilities if it is to achieve the role it sees for itself in the future of the World.

    We should not underestimate the magnitude of the task, large organisations are rather adroit at resisting change.

    Colonel General Alexander Lapin headed the Leningrad Military District, and Colonel General Sergei Kuzovlev headed the Moscow Military District, according to Kremlin materials published on the website on May 15.

    Thus, in the list of participants in the meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and the commanders of the military districts, Lapin and Kuzovlev are listed as commanders of the Leningrad and Moscow military districts, respectively.

    Lapin previously served as first deputy chief of staff of the ground forces. Kuzovlev headed the Southern Military District.

    Earlier that day, Putin thanked the commanders of the military districts of the Russian Federation for their combat work. He emphasized that the work is proceeding according to the plan of the group’s command and the General Staff, and all assigned tasks are being completed.

    Also during the meeting, the Russian leader linked the appointment of Andrei Belousov as head of the Russian Ministry of Defense with increased spending on the military component . According to him, in 2024, the Russian Federation’s total spending on defense and security will be approximately 8.7%.

    Putin reveals why he replaced Russia’s defense minister
    Moscow needs to mind both “guns and butter,” the president has said

    New Defense Minister Andrey Belousov will be able to properly steward the country's substantial defense spending and ensure it helps the civilian economy, rather than detracts from it, President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday.

    “This relationship between ‘guns’ and ‘butter’, so to speak, must be organically integrated into the overall development strategy of the Russian state,” Putin said. “I hope that Andrey Removich [Belousov] will handle this task in the best possible way.”

    Putin noted that Russia’s military spending has grown to approximately 8.7% of GDP in 2024. While not quite the 13% that the Soviet Union was spending in the 1980s at the height of the Cold War, “these are significant resources, and we have to use them very efficiently and effectively,” the president explained.

    It is important to be aware that Putin firing someone is not like Trump firing someone... most of these positions you can't resign and to be moved to a different position or to put someone better suited to new policies in then the incumbent is fired from the position... that does not mean they got caught with their hands in the cookie jar or did anything wrong.

    It is when they get arrested and taken to jail that they did something wrong and are going to be prosecuted for that.

    The commander of the 20th combined arms army, Lieutenant General Sukhrab Akhmedov, was removed.

    Previously, in the media and military resources he was repeatedly accused of failed offensive operations with unjustified losses at Ugledar.
    Military sources have written more than once that he could mislead the command regarding the situation in the sectors of the front entrusted to him, remaining afloat for a long time.

    🇺🇦🇷🇺‼🚨 IMPORTANT: The Russian commander of the 20th Army, Sukhrab Akhmedov, has been removed from his post.

    He ordered the stupidest attacks without seemly caring nor learning. If you have seen a Russian assault sent into artillery and minefields, being decimated.
    -> Yap, that was him!

    Russian units celebrate right now. Looks like the Russian army gets a cleanup, after the new government was formed.


    But

    @JJanicki91
    P1 He has not been arrested yet in fact I think he is being reassigned to a position of one of the guys who has been arrested because he is extremely efficient and effective with his resources. Which is the exact guy the Russia military needs in the rear lines.
    P2 basically he is great at managing the resources he has and is a leader at doing it. I think he was in the wrong position and is going to get a promotion in a way
