Defender’s Day List

Putin signed out his list of military promotions yesterday.

For the MOD a little unusual, no three-star promotions, just five two-stars, but 26 one-stars.

One newly-minted general-lieutenant is Aleksandr Sanchik, commander of the Eastern MD’s 35th CAA.

He is likely with his units now located on Ukraine’s borders.

First deputy commander of Pacific Fleet submarine forces Eduard Mikhaylov also got a second star. He likely will command Pacific (or maybe Northern) Fleet subs one day.

The Central MD’s chief of air and air defense forces Valeriy Belkov was elevated to general-lieutenant.

More complete rundown to follow.

  1. Apologies, Vice-Admiral Mikhaylov is commander of the Kola Composite Forces Flotilla since 2020. https://bit.ly/3I8Bkz6
