In Russia, a new kind of military
This year, the Armed Forces will have a military space defense.
By the end of the year, or more precisely, by December 1, the Aerospace Defense Forces (ASD) will be created on the basis of the Space Forces (CS).
They will also include Air Force units. However, not all, but only the air component of the Moscow air defense district. The MiG-31 fighter jets will be subordinate to the new structure - only a small part.
It is assumed that 70,000 officers and some more contract service personnel from among the attendants will serve in East Kazakhstan. The VKO headquarters can be left in Moscow or placed in other regions of Russia, including at the Plesetsk cosmodrome in the Arkhangelsk region.
But the Air Force as a type of the Armed Forces will remain almost at full strength. As well as the Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force, Colonel-General Alexander Zelin remains in his post. This "KP" said the official representative of the Air Force, Colonel Vladimir Drik.
