Defender’s Day Promotions

On 21 February, President Vladimir Putin issued an ukaz listing 23 general and flag officer promotions for Defender’s Day 2015.

The list included:

  • Three-star general-colonel rank for GRU Chief Igor Sergun and Ground Troops Main Staff Chief Sergey Istrakov.
  • Two-star ranks for the head of the General Staff’s military-scientific committee and a deputy commander of the Pacific Fleet.
  • One-star general-major for the commanders of the 98th Airborne Division, the 22nd Spetsnaz Brigade, the 6th Tank Brigade, the 200th Motorized Rifle Brigade, and the chief of VVS radar troops.
  • Other notables — one-star for the deputy chief of staff of the Southern MD, chief of the Plesetsk cosmodrome, and head of the RVSN’s missile armaments directorate.

As always, there were newly-minted generals whose current posts could not be identified.

The updated promotion list, now with about 230 names, is available here.
