Changes in the Armed Forces are difficult yet necessary

October 28, 2010, Solnechnogorsk County, Moscow Region

The Russian Armed Forces are currently undergoing changes, and despite the fact that change is difficult, it is nevertheless necessary: the efficiency and combat readiness of the Armed Forces, as well as the social and financial wellbeing of officers and their motivation are crucial conditions for ensuring Russia's defence capability. Dmitry Medvedev stated the above at a ceremony for presenting state decorations to servicemen held near Moscow.

The Commander-in-Chief rewarded officers who distinguished themselves serving in the North Caucasus.

During his visit to Solnechnogorsk County near Moscow, Dmitry Medvedev visited a training facility for specialists (snipers) and those improving their professional skills, where he examined samples of fire arms currently supplied to the Armed Forces.

The President also inspected residential buildings for officers, both recently built and under construction, in Timonovo settlement and met with executives of utility and maintenance companies rendering their services to the military base.
