Ukraine (bbabo.net), - The appointment of Chief of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces Valery Gerasimov as Commander of the Joint Group of Forces was completely justified. This was stated to Pravda.Ru by a member of the State Duma Defense Committee, Lieutenant General Viktor Lebedev.
“This means that the person who has full authority over all the Armed Forces should be in charge of a special military operation,” he explained.
The deputy recalled that almost the entire Russian Army is now participating in hostilities, and Gerasimov had previously been involved in the SVO, but he exercised control.
“Now he will directly control that grouping, which practically includes all of our ground forces and so on, and the fleet is involved with its Calibers. And he will directly control the fighting. This was also in the Great Patriotic War, ”concluded the general.
As reported by bbabo.net, today a commission of the Russian Ministry of Defense headed by Commander-in-Chief of the Ground Forces General of the Army Oleg Salyukov arrived in Belarus today. In the course of the work, the quality of combat coordination exercises was checked and an assessment was made of their readiness to fulfill their intended tasks in the interests of ensuring the military security of the Union State.
