A new look for the RF Defense Ministry website’s been unveiled (in testing mode, so far).
The first treat we’re supposed to get is video from tonight’s Red Square rehearsal of Monday’s Victory Day parade. There’s a place to click for it, but it’s obviously not loaded yet.
So, say farewell to the old Mil.ru.
Old Mil.ru had a nice rundown of the Defense Ministry’s organizational structure that was once well maintained, but became an untended mess after Anatoliy Serdyukov arrived in 2007 and changed the Russian military bureaucracy in myriad ways.
New Mil.ru is pared down, so far, in this respect, showing only a slicker (but up-to-date) rundown of Serdyukov’s deputies.
