Time for an update . . . a 22 February (Defender’s Day eve) decree from Russia’s Supreme Glavk promoted a raft of officers, mostly from O-6 to general-major or rear-admiral.
One exception is Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu’s long-time military assistant, Yuriy Sadovenko, who became a three-star general-colonel. He came with Shoygu from MChS. He’s a deputy defense minister and director of Shoygu’s apparat. That is, chief of Shoygu’s personal staff and organizational elements reporting directly to the defense minister.
Some significant personnel were elevated, including chiefs or commanders of:
- the Genshtab’s CCP;
- a regional nuclear weapons storage facility;
- the MOD’s Main Missile-Artillery Directorate;
- an airborne division;
- Pacific Fleet submarine forces;
- a submarine division;
- a surface ship division;
- Novorossiysk Naval Base;
- the 201st Military Base in Tajikistan;
- two VKO brigades.
This iteration should be a little easier to read in Google.
