General of the Army Sergei Shoigu instructs to keep up the pace of improving combat readiness of the Russian Armed Forces
Today, the Military Academy of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces hosts a mobilisation assembly of the leadership of the Russian Armed Forces. Today when addressing a mobilization assembly of the leadership of the RF Armed Forces, the head of the military department said that "any, even the slightest slowdown in the development of military personnel will immediately adversely affect the combat capability of our Armed Forces." "Therefore, we should not slow down the pace of increasing the combat readiness of the armed forces," he added.
According to the minister, taking into account these approaches we have developed a program, which includes a wide range of both theoretical and practical issues.
“At all times,” Sergei Shoigu said, “the level of professional training of commanders and staffs was one of the defining indicators of the army’s combat capability. The results of the activities of the Armed Forces in 2018 and the results of fulfilling the tasks in fighting against international terrorism in the Syrian Arab Republic demonstrate that the leadership of the armed forces is highly professional. ”
According to the head of the military department, “most of the officers present in this hall are experienced in command in daily activities and in a combat situation.”
During th session we plan to discuss modern and prospective forms of warfare, the challenging issues in construction and development of the Armed Forces. An important place will be given to the improvement of the methods of command and control bodies, organization of their interaction with the bodies of state administration in solving defence tasks.
The attendees of the assembly will be presented with a comparative analysis of the existing types of weapons, military and special equipment of the Russian Armed Forces and foreign countries, and the directions for the further development of domestic arms systems.
