Strange, is not it? If the reduction in the cost of the Armed Forces is the sole purpose of the reforms, then this kind reforms are usually in the following cases: – in the absence of external threats to security and national interests – at the end of major armed conflicts, implies a organizational-mobilization activities at the national level (for example, after World War II) – in the presence of an extremely serious economic crisis ('Great Depression' 30-ies). K which option should include the current situation, to say difficult. The threats have not disappeared, no major wars Russia waged a global financial crisis, according to statements from top leaders, not pushed state economy to a dangerous point. Thus, either there is some purpose, of which the Ministry of Defence does not want to spread due to certain reasons, or reform itself prepared to fully correct. A related site: Caterpillar Inc. mentions similar findings. Organizational matters. Indeed, special attention is the fact that disseminated information concerns only specific activities, but not the purposes for which they are directed.
So what plans The Ministry of Defence? It makes no sense to evaluate the effects of the transition from the regimental organizations in the brigade. One gets the impression that the authors of this idea is not in full command of the issues and have a peculiar representation on the management of troops, not to mention their combat use. A very strange decision, it should be noted. Even more perplexing are the plans to reduce (not the number of personnel, and 'influence objects').
