Promotion List

Here’s an updated promotion list. Over 600 general and flag officers from the Russian Federation Armed Forces. Never as up-to-date as one would like, but at least it’s bargain-priced.

And make no mistake, this is a time-consuming and never-ending process. Just learned that General-Lieutenant Sergey Yudin died suddenly at 59 on June 10, 2019. So, off the list.

A couple wrinkles this time.

First, generals and admirals are in the process of being color-coded — green, yellow, red, and orange.

The “stop light” colors are a WAG at likely, uncertain, or unlikely career progression in the future.

What, you ask, are indicators of probable advancement? One is, ironically and simply, a recent promotion. An officer promoted to one-star rank is in the running for a second star, etc. But also whether an officer is in a line or staff position, his age (where we have it), and his past career progression.

Orange is for those without an identified position or post (probably some are GRU and their names are kept out of the media).

Second, a folder of photos of promoted officers (at least some so far) has been added.
