All Sound Ideas About Military Reform Deserve To Be Supported And Further Developed


  • Vitaly Tsymbal

    (Gaidar Institute for Economic Policy)


At present, Russia’s expert community, including specialists from various fields, as well as her various military agencies, are actively discussing proposals concerning a new system of military training offered by higher educational establishments, which will exempt their graduates from conscription into the armed forces. Unfortunately, the proposals released so far do not touch upon a number of very important military and social aspects of the issue under consideration. Moreover, the new proposals are, in fact, a call to begin military training reform from scratch, totally ignoring all the previous efforts at reforming the system of manning Russia’s armed forces. It should be said that the history of those efforts deserves proper a?? en?? on in its own right.
