In his telegram channel, the commander of the Vostok brigade of the NM DPR, Alexander Khodakovsky, spoke about the main problem of the Russian army.
According to him, often new commanders have only formal powers. Old cadres, as a rule, are in no hurry to give way to young ones, the Vostok commander writes. Sometimes new commanders have only formal powers, and command remains in the hands of their predecessors, the brigade commander noted. Thus, the new general has little authority to make decisions.
As for the reshuffling of personnel in the Russian army, Khodakovsky notes that the army command system has been taking shape for decades, so it is not easy to change anything in it. Also, one of the problems of the army is the unwillingness to inform commanders of important information for fear of angering the authorities, and also for fear of falling out of favor with higher military officials and being demoted, as a result of which important information is often withheld, the brigade commander notes.
