If you have nothing decent to say better keep your mouth shut.
Despite the victory in Georgia the situation in the Russian army is still bad. Drafted infantrymen hardly get any military training, they are used to build roads and dacha’s for their officers, who also arranged a hiring system: if you are on good terms with these officers for a little money the drafted kids will come and dig your holes, your swimming pool, build or renovate your dacha, almost for free !! And you don’t have to feed them, even. Every youth is doing his utmost to stay out of the army because of that.. so much for patriotism.
That’s not good.
The officers in charge (it seems as though this is a Russian tradition, sorry to have to say that) spend their time drinking and making money on the side, and kissing ass where ever needed. When it comes to battle over 50 % are simply not capable of doing what they’re expected to do. The average soldier has to save his own ass, but has a problem doing so because anti-authoritative behavior is greatly discouraged in the army. So many will get killed before they dare to act. It has been like that since The Great Patriotic War [WWII]. It is a disgrace, but it is true. The decent ones are seen leaving the army one by one, as they are underpaid and refuse to take bribes.. plus the rest is taking advantage of them wherever they can. Some pencil wrestler skilled in office politics gets the promotion while a decent commander has his ass shot off in Georgia or wherever. Enough is enough.
Lots of equipment is in very bad shape (even the non-inflatable stuff) as there simply is no money available for maintenance – this money mostly ends up in someones pockets to be used for personal things. Since the army is a very closed organization politics hardly have instruments to battle this. Actually, Russia cannot even afford the war in Georgia, despite all the money made on national resources.

you said: “If you have nothing decent to say better keep your mouth shut.” Sorry?! Who spoke in Georgia or Russia? It was a funny remark on the fact that in first Iraq war the US said that iraq had the same kind of “material”. Dont be silly.
