why there arent any more russian marshals ?


Recommended Posts

well from my point of view , if the russian MD does promote a general to the rank of marshal of the russian federation it would not pose a threat to the russian government , as long as they dont promote a hardliner , and choose someone that seems very loyal to the government per see General of the army Shoygu or General of the army Gerasimov .  

or maybe they could be waiting for the last soviet marshal , Marshal of the Soviet Union Yazov to pass away and then promote a new marshal .

Or it could be for that reason too.  An astute observation.

They have very few Army Generals (4 star US equivalent)...  Even defense minister Shoigu is only an Army General...  The service commanders are only colonel-generals (Lt-Gen)...  For a few years the commander of the air force was only a major-general.

So now that the last marshal of the soviet union, sadly passed away, do you gentlemen think were gonna be seing any marshals of the russian federation any time soon?

Unless Putin gifts it to minister Shoigu because he's running out of state awards to give him, I very much doubt it.  The only reason I could possibly see would be if some of the now independant border states opted to combine their armed forces with Russia's...

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
