More Military Personnel Decrees

Kremlin.ru published four more decrees from President Medvedev on military personnel changes today. 

  • General-Lieutenant Studenikin’s removal is surprising.  He’s had some good jobs, and he’s not necessarily too old to serve in another post. 
  • Dismissed General-Colonel Tkachev commanded Baluyevskiy’s experimental Eastern Regional Command, the latest forerunner of today’s four OSKs.
  • There’s a change as chief of staff in the federal chemical weapons storage directorate.
  • That bastard child of the armed forces may be reorganizing – it sounds as if there may be a new Main Directorate of Railroad Troops, presumably it would be part of Bulgakov’s MTO empire.
  • More staff officers from the MDs relieved and dismissed.  Former 58th Army commander Sobolev is dismissed.
  • There’s even a change in one you don’t hear about every day (or even every decade) – the Special Service of Strategic Communications of the RF President.
  • Finally, the changes in the new MDs are getting squared away – commanders and first deputy commanders in the new Southern, Eastern, and Central MDs roll over from their old positions.  Salyukov moves to the General Staff. 

Here are the details.

  • Colonel Igor Nikolayevich Dylevskiy, Chief, 5th Directorate, Main Operations Directorate, General Staff.

  1. Just intresting to see Surovikin once again promoted for higher rank and positions. Just look in to the background of that guy and you will be amazed what officers can get away with in their career!
