Defense24: Russia bears colossal costs of maintaining the army on the border with Ukraine


The daily maintenance of tens of thousands of military personnel on the border with Ukraine costs Russia a lot of money. This was reported on December 6 by the Polish Internet publication Defense24, citing data from an expert at the Center for Defense Strategies, captain of the 1st rank of the reserve of the Ukrainian Navy, Andriy Ryzhenko.


Moscow bears colossal costs for the stay of the Russian army near the Ukrainian borders

- says the Polish media.

Ryzhenko calculated that if the number of Russian military personnel recently mentioned by the head of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Aleksey Reznikov is correct, then the Russian Federation's expenses for this will amount to 10 million dollars per day (more than 700 million rubles).

On December 3, the Ukrainian Minister of Defense said that the Russian Federation had "concentrated" more than 94 thousand of its troops near the borders of Ukraine and in the "temporarily occupied Ukrainian territories." He stressed that, according to intelligence, there is a likelihood of a Russian "attack" on Ukraine. The most likely time of the "invasion" he called the end of January 2022, summed up the media from Poland.

We remind you that on the eve of Reznikov, in his article for the American Atlantic Council (an organization banned in the Russian Federation), he warned that Europe could be overwhelmed by a wave of a gigantic migration crisis. He He pledged 3-5 million Ukrainian refugees, if the West does not provide urgent and comprehensive assistance to Kiev to prevent "aggression".

      There is a difference - if you yourself did not serve, then find out and be surprised - feeding from one boiler to the PPD and from the field kitchen costs differently, the floor costs differently and the heating of the barracks and the heating of stoves in tents, washing the l / s in a heated field water in a special vehicle with solarium and centralized hot water supply in the RPM. And so in everything. The difference is significant.
      This applies to any troops, even the Horse-diving tank armies, even the Usrai squadrons of horses on boars.

    So what? What does this mean? And this suggests that the presence of a head in some does not mean at all that these heads have contents in the form of brains. What difference does it make where and on what territory of the country its troops are located, everywhere their maintenance requires the same means. Although it should be noted that keeping troops near the borders with Ukraine is much cheaper than what is allowed in the north, due to the same climatic conditions, as well as the simplicity and less costly logistics of providing troops with everything they need.

    Who believes this nonsense?
    These are Russian troops on Russian territory. Their content is the same, that on the border with Ukraine, that in the Nizhny Novgorod or Novosibirsk region. It will be more expensive in Siberia.
    Ukraine is bordered by two VOs, South and West. The total number of these districts is estimated at about 400 people.
    Suppose that of these 400 people, 000 are located near the border of Ukraine. So what? Where should they be located? Is it written somewhere that they all need to be driven to the Volga and the Caspian Sea?
    Moreover, Yelnya, to put it mildly, is not near the border of Ukraine.
    In short, to listen to xoxlov and pshek is not to respect yourself.

        Especially in the field kitchens. I was at the exercises for a little over a week. No one died of hunger, they fed better and gave more. After that, he could fall apart on the tapchane in the radio station and listen to music and from time to time bang the key and on the CT apparatus. I have never rested so much as during such exercises. The supplies of bread were given out in the dining room, then they were brought up again, beauty!

      in the sense that keeping troops in the field and not in the PPD will always come out much more expensive, only the chubatious, worn-out redhead is cleverly keeping track of other people's money, forgetting to count the Usrainsky tugriks that they spend on keeping in the fields of the Khryukswerrmacht that they were preparing to attack the LDNR, but so far pissing.

            Especially for the goofy.
            The winter period of study takes place every year. And here they are discussing certain features of the maintenance of troops in connection with the "forthcoming attack" on Ukraine. Like, they took them out of their barracks in Siberia and threw them at the border in a field in tents to freeze until they were ordered to attack.
            I strongly doubt that in the same Yelnya the personnel are not in the barracks.
            And for the future, no need to poke me, they are not mature enough and I did not give reasons.
            I served in the army when, at best, you still went to the toilet under the table for the potty. And I served in the construction battalion of the Soviet Army, so I speak Russian in such a way that your ears will curl up into a tube.

      It's not as simple as it seems to many. The Army also has a fish day. And then you have to import up to a dozen sturgeons to each regiment and of course live ones and of course ladies with caviar. If caviar is needed, then it is squeezed out of the sturgeon by massaging its breasts, and after that it is released into the field in the pasture. The Ukrainians look at this and the Poles, too, and only lick their cheeks. Of course the grazing area should be clean and suitable for this large bird. And now just think of the costs are big, every day three shots of two hundred grams of breakfast, lunch and dinner. In addition, the staff needs to change sheets, fluff down mattresses and blankets. After an hour's rest, the soldiers receive a massage by experienced masseuses in their prime, between 18 and 25 years old. Their wives massage the officers and higher authorities, receiving additional money and space rations. Once every six months, the wives of officers and senior staff receive sable coats free of charge. And if they stayed in winter quarters, only once a year. Beneficial for everyone. So that the soldiers would not get bored, they dug large lakes and started the fish. Anyone who wants can fish for free, even ocean fish, so that fish, ocean, do not cut the oak, they have special muzzles that create the appearance that they are in the ocean. Of course there are costs. But when they have to fight, they will rush to the enemy with a tarzan shout and make cutlets out of them, because they tore them from tents and other good. It's not easy about tanks either. The tank chooses its own fuel and lubricant for every day, depending on what kind of dream it has for someone to hit the kumpol. You have to force them to stay in the stall. They are ready to rip off the cockroach legs of enemies every second, tremble and chill. Hu! I said everything. I apologize if I gave out a military secret.

    And if Russia does not attack and does not start a war game, then it will be credited with a technical defeat and will be asked to give Ukraine gas, peas, for the production of gas, and of course coal, porridge, an ax for porridge and butter for porridge, for everyone, even those who are just born.
