First Glance at Defenders’ Day List
Yesterday President Vladimir Putin signed out a promotion list with the names of 33 MOD general and flag officers.
Three officers, including Mikhail Mizintsev and Sergey Rudskoy, became three-star general-colonels. Mizintsev heads the NTsUO. Rudskoy is Chief of the General Staff’s Main Operations Directorate who briefs frequently on Russian operations in Syria.
Aleksey Zavizon became a two-star general-lieutenant; he commanded Russian troops and militia near Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, according to various reports.
New LRA Commander Sergey Kobylash also made two-star.
Denis Lyamin became a one-star general-major. He now commands the Central MD’s resurrected 90th Tank Division.
Plenty of other names to look at.
