    Could someone tell me how one rank addresses another superior rank now in the Russian Army? I take it that it is just the straightforward use of the rank itself and not like in Soviet times where "Comrade" would be put before the rank?

    Hi Kemac, it is a forum rule that members introduce themselves in the members introductions and rules section.

    Please take the time to read the rules and post your own introduction thread in the introductions section. Very Happy

    Sorry. I had been a member for a long time of an older forum which I assumed was this one transferred over. I will do it now

    Comrade + Rank

    Same as in the Soviet Army

    But if someone of a higher rank addresses you they can skip the comrade part
