Sergei Surovikin: in the Far East, professional training of servicemen has grown substantially

1 December in the Eastern Military District began a new academic year. In connection with this, solemn rallies were held in the military units and units of the Air Defense Forces. On that day, Colonel-General Sergei Surovikin, the district commander, visited a separate motorized rifle brigade commanded by Major-General Boris Fomichev.

Colonel-General S. Surovikin checked the readiness of the military unit for action during the training process in difficult winter conditions and spoke at a solemn meeting. In his speech, he noted that commanders of all degrees should make the principle "Do as I do" as fundamental in organizing combat training. In this regard, according to the commander, one of the main tasks should be to improve the methodological skills and professional preparedness of junior command personnel and officers of all official categories, as well as to demonstrate a personal example in performing combat training tasks and daily activities.

As a result of the introduction into the practice of combat training in 2014, a fundamentally new system for training troops developed in the VVO, as Colonel-General Sergei Surovikin pointed out, there has been a significant increase in the professional skills of servicemen. The average level of military training in the Far East, in comparison with 2013 year, increased by 0,8 points (on a five-point scale). In comparison with last year, the experience of practical driving of mechanics-drivers of combat vehicles increased on average by 112, the increase in the surfacing of crews of surface ships of the fleet was from 103 to 132% (depending on the types of warships and support vessels). Also up to 110 - 150%, the increase in the number of pilots of army, assault, fighter and bomber aviation increased.

The plans for 2015 include a further increase in the intensity of combat training of the troops of the Eastern Military District. Thus, in the course of tactical exercises with live fire, it is planned to double the number of firing missions to be solved, all training in fire control of subunits will be conducted with real ammunition consumption.
