Defense Minister Slams Property Service Company

MOSCOW, February 27 (RIA Novosti) - Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu on Wednesday criticized the performance of some defense-related agencies, as well as mistakes made by his predecessor Anatoly Serdyukov.

Shoigu in particular lashed out at scandal-hit Oboronservis, a defense property management firm, which he said has failed to fulfil its contracts with the state.

“Only 80 percent of the work on 79 contracts, worth a total of 118.2 billion rubles (about $4 billion) has been fulfilled in 2011-12,” he told a meeting of senior officers at the Defense Ministry chaired by President Vladimir Putin. The state has provided 100 percent funding for those contracts, he said.

Oboronservis has been at the center of a string of high-profile scandals involving alleged real estate fraud involving state assets. An investigation into suspected fraud involving property worth about $130 million at Oboronservis led to Serdyukov's sacking late last year.

Russian Arms Trade Czar Says "War" Declared on Weapon Supplies to Syria

MOSCOW, March 2 (RIA Novosti) – Russia is facing a ‘real war’ aimed at hampering the country’s legal deliveries of weapons to Syria, the head of the Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation has said.

“A real war has been declared against us,” Alexander Fomin told Ekho Moskvy radio on Friday without specifying who has declared the war.

“The [Russian] ships are lured into ports and arrested there under various devised pretexts. When the ships are at sea, any insurance is canceled,” Fomin said adding that any attempts to deliver the contracted goods are being thwarted.

Russia Sold Over $2.5 Bln Worth of Weapons Abroad in Jan-Feb

MOSCOW, March 1 (RIA Novosti) - In the first two months of 2013, Russia sold over $2.5 billion worth of weapons to other countries, the head of the Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation said Friday.

“In the first month of this year, we sold arms worth $1 billion. In the first two months, total weapons sales exceeded $2.5 billion,” Alexander Fomin told Ekho Moskvy radio.

He also said that last year, Russia sold other countries arms worth over $15 billion, which was 12 percent more than originally planned and $2 billion more than in 2011.

Watchdog Seizes Rotten Food at Kurils Army Base

VLADIVOSTOK, March 4 (RIA Novosti) – Russian food safety and sanitary watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor has seized several dozen tons of rotten food at a military unit on the Kuril Islands in the Russian Far East, some of which contained insects, the agency said on Monday.

The rotten food was found during checks on a food depot at a military unit on the South Kuril Island of Kunashir.

“A check of a ration supply depot in the village of Lagunnoye in the South Kuril district of the Sakhalin Region has found that food was kept in unsanitary conditions,” Rosselkhoznadzor said in a statement.

“The inspectors found several dozen tons of groats intended for servicemen’s meals. Part of the food was infected with ticks. Also, fungi and rodents’ excrement were found on the bags. The foodstuffs hazardous for human health were seized,” the agency said.

Defense Ministry Denies Feeding Kurils Garrison Rotten Food

MOSCOW, March 4 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s Defense Ministry confirmed on Monday reports of vermin found in food stocks at a military unit on the Kurils Islands in the Russian Far East, but denied the food had been given to servicemen.

Russian food safety and sanitary watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor reported on Monday it had seized several dozen tons of rotten food at a military unit on the South Kuril Island of Kunashir during checks on the army base’s food depot.

Rosselkhoznadzor said the inspection showed food had been kept in unsanitary conditions. “Part of the food was infected with ticks. Also, fungi and rodents’ excrement were found on the bags. The foodstuffs hazardous for human health were seized,” the agency said.

Eastern Military District spokesman Col. Alexander Gordeyev said, however, the rotten food had been discovered before it was fed to servicemen.

“The servicemen of the military unit of the Eastern Military District located on the Kuril Islands were not fed with inferior food. The fact of finding flour pests was indeed registered. It was exposed by a supply officer of the same military unit a month and a half ago,” Gordeyev said.

Russian Warships Complete Gulf of Aden Anti-Piracy Patrol

MOSCOW, March 4 (RIA Novosti) - The Russian Navy’s Udaloy-class destroyer Marshal Shaposhnikov has completed an anti-piracy mission in the Gulf of Aden and set course for its Vladivostok base, where it should arrive in April, Fleet spokesman Capt. First Rank Roman Martov said on Monday.

The destroyer was part of a Pacific Fleet task force task force, which also included the tanker Irkut and the rescue tug boat Alatau. The ships made an official visit to the port of Mumbai in India in late December and conducted joint drills with the Indian navy on the way to the Gulf of Aden, Martov said.

Iraq to Get Russian Weapons by June - Minister

MOSCOW, March 4 (RIA Novosti) - Russia will deliver attack helicopters and air-defense systems to Iraq before the summer, Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari said on Monday.

Delivery of the Russian arms will start as soon as financial matters are dealt with, he added.

“I believe the first arms deliveries from Russia to Iraq will start before the beginning of the summer at the latest,” he said in an interview with Golos Rossii Radio.

Concerning Iraq’s plans to buy Lochkeed Martin F-16 fighters from the United States, Zebari said Iraq “has no problems with the Americans on this deal.”

“Deliveries are due to begin in 2014,” he said.

In November, Iraq’s acting Defense Minister Sadun Al-Dulaymi denied reports that Bagdad was annulling a $4.2 billion arms deal with Russia over concerns about possible corruption.

Russia to Resurrect Titanium Submarines

MOSCOW, March 5 (RIA Novosti) - The Russian Navy will refit, modernize and recommission two Sierra class (Project 945) titanium-hull nuclear-powered attack submarines by 2017, the Zvezdochka shipyard said on Tuesday.

The Sierra class has a light and strong titanium pressure hull, enabling these boats to dive to depths of up to 550 meters (1800 feet) and enhancing their survivability, as well as having a low magnetic signature.

A total of four Project 945 and 945A submarines were built in Russia. In addition to the Karp and the Kostroma, the Pskov and the Nizhny Novgorod were built in the early 1990's and are currently in service with the Northern Fleet.

Some 250,000 Dodged Draft in Russia in 2012

MOSCOW, March 5 (RIA Novosti) - There were about 250,000 draft dodgers in Russia last year, a General Staff official said on Tuesday.

In 2012, 235,800 citizens dodged conscription by “falling off the Defense Ministry’s radar,” while another 8,800 people were officially served call-up notices and did not show up at induction centers, said Maj. Gen. Yevgeny Burdinsky, the deputy head of the General Staff’s Chief Organization and Mobilization Directorate.

This number is 25 percent higher than in 2011, when an estimated 200,000 young men evaded compulsory military service, according to the General Staff.

Russian Ex Chief of Staff Gets Defense Minister Aide Job

MOSCOW, March 4 (RIA Novosti) - General of the Army Nikolai Makarov, dismissed last year as chief of the General Staff, has been appointed as an advisor to Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, a Defense Ministry representative told RIA Novosti on Monday.

Makarov was appointed to the new post about a month ago but the news was only made public today, the representative said.

Makarov was sacked in November and replaced with former Central Military District commander Col. Gen. Valery Gerasimov. Gerasimov’s promotion followed Shoigu’s appointment as defense minister, replacing Anatoly Serdyukov, who was dismissed amid an investigation into fraud at defense firm Oboronservis.

Russian Defense Minister Seeks Closer Ties to Myanmar

NAYPYIDAW, March 5 (RIA Novosti) - Moscow is seeking improved ties including military cooperation with Myanmar, Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said during an official visit to the country this week.

“In connection with the removal of sanctions, I think we have new opportunities in the Defense Ministry for cooperation,” Shoigu told reporters on Monday during a meeting in the capital Naypyidaw with Myanmar's Vice President Nyan Tun.

The two states could also cooperate in future in trade, culture and education, Shoigu said. Russia plans to admit Myanmar students to Moscow State University, Xinhua reported, citing Shoigu.
