The Russian Defense Ministry has resumed snap officer courses for contract soldiers, the Russian media reports.

According to reports, soldiers, sergeants, master sergeants and warrant officers with civil higher education can pass a half-year course and become lieutenants. First of all, the Russian Army is interested in getting infantry and tank officers.

Currently, this effort is ongoing on a pilot basis.

The restoration of these courses is another signal that Russia is checking and evaluating its capabilities to mobilize and expand officer personnel of the ground forces in case of the escalation of the situation along its borders.

          I got news for you, I’m not waging a propaganda campaign agaist my own country unlike you pricks. I’m talking mainly to South Front and whoever else might happen across this site. How oblivious you are that no one is listening outside this circlejerk of liars, thieves, and bullies. If it were solely up to me I’d track you down and throw you in a industrial meat grinder, but instead of wasting time with that: mute.

    Yes, this iz a signal they intend to beef up their blitzkrieg capabilities. Europe is weak and Nato is ineffective thanks to Soros undermining it. His goal was to sovietize the Continent and present a clear and present danger to U.S.
