VDV Gets Army’s Air Assault Brigades

Mil.ru reported today on President Putin’s 11 October ukaz transferring administrative and operational control of air assault brigades in Ussuriysk, Ulan-Ude, and Kamyshin from Eastern and Southern MD Commanders to General-Colonel Vladimir Shamanov and the VDV.

The MOD website says the decree is No. 776; it doesn’t appear on Kremlin.ru yet, but may later.

Mil.ru reported VDV commissions are already surveying the condition of weapons, equipment, and facilities in the three brigades, and converting their training program to match that of the VDV.

Shamanov announced that this change, and others, were pending back in early August.

  1. I tend not to write a bunch of comments, however i did a few searching and
    wound up here VDV Gets Armys Air Assault Brigades | Russian Defense Policy.
    And I do have a few questions for you if you do not mind.

    Could it be simply me or does it look like a few of the responses come
    across like coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on additional sites, I would like to keep up with everything
    fresh you have to post. Could you list of all of your community pages like your twitter feed,
    Facebook page or linkedin profile?
