Every nation is proud of its soldiers and officers. But not every nation is willing to increase their quality of life.
What a shame. As a retired American officer, I don’t know of any American officers, of any rank, that live in conditions like these poor officers and their families. These Russian officers are serving their country and are willing to give their lives in its defense, and this is the best the Russian military can do for them? Disgusting.
Well said Otis.
I can imagine the housing off base is very expensive since it’s in the Moscow region. Why are there no photos of the inside of apartments where people are currently living? I see they are going to remodel the bathroom of the one apartment shown. There is probably a lot more to this story than what’s been said in this post. Maybe they are saving the hallway to remodel last it is the least important as far as cosmetics go. There are abandon military buildings in the United States too housing and other buildings both. It happens.
None of our military live in such squalor. I have been to dozens of bases from all the services. The least modern are the Marine Corp bases and even they have golf courses, gyms, shopping, and quality housing. Russia should be ashamed.
what a nightmare…………..
OMG – if this is for officers, where do soldiers live? In trenches?
military people deserve a better life as they serve their life for the country.
Future America under obama the lawless and democrat control. Sad.
C’mon George. He is out in the next election. Keep the faith brother
Except it was W Bush who tried to cut soldiers salary, benefits, death benefits (to spouses) and hazard pay all during war time. But hey, lets not have facts coloring our comments.
its not that bad. Though it was some time ago. But last 2 years i see real changes for the better. And u cant really compare USA and Russia, which now restoring from the breakdown of different system that was in USSR. It takes some time…
