One year has passed since the Russian Defense Ministry established the National Defense Control Center, similar to that of the EMERCOM. According to the point of view prevailing in mass media, the NDCC has since then proved effi cient command and control center for military training and day-to-day operations. However, the NDCC is facing a marked trend towards substituting official accounting and statistics with video camera recordings, which questions the concept behind it.
