Reform of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, which was invented in the bowels of the Ministry of Defence, is entering the phase of practical implementation. For all events the word 'shock' is perhaps the most mild and neutral definition that You can pick up. Conducted behind closed doors, without illumination of the goals and objectives of any argument and action plans, these changes seem to go down in history. Only now, under any name? .. Why? Perhaps this is someone else seems strange, but as a rule, the reform of anything done to perfection, that is, improving the existing system (organization, state and other structures, etc., etc.). The idea is that a result of the Ministry of Defence of Russia's transition will appear armed forces, capable not only to protect national interests and security of the state, but also to adequately and promptly respond to any asymmetric threats that have become so widespread in recent years. Thus, the Russian army is better trained and armed, mobile and effective in addressing the challenges it faces. A soldiers, finally, will find their deserved sweat and blood of high social status.
However, the only thing that was made by the Ministry of Defense – is … to minimize the cost of the Russian Armed Forces Federation. Not saving capabilities of the country, and especially its capacity. Not a policy aimed at protecting national interests and national security. Not ready for new challenges and threats. Not problem solving social problems. A reduction of expenses.
