Cadre Changes

RIA Novosti noted yesterday the new 58th Army Commander is General-Major Andrey Gurulev.  Gurulev was previously its chief of staff.  His boss, General-Major Andrey Kartapolov also moved up to be Deputy Commander, Southern MD.

Krasnaya zvezda published a personnel decree from January 20 that somehow managed to slip past.  It included the following changes.

Relieve of duty:

  • Colonel Oleg Viktorovich Averin, Chief, Missile-Artillery Armament Service, Western MD.
  • Colonel Vyacheslav Nikolayevich Gurov, Commander, 6th Independent Tank Brigade, 20th Army.

  • Colonel Andrey Vladimirovich Lipikhin, Commander, 6th Air Defense Brigade.
  • Colonel Vladimir Pavlovich Omelyanovich, Commander, 6th Independent Tank Brigade, 20th Army.

Dismiss:

  • General-Lieutenant Khamit Iskarovich Kamalov.
