MOSCOW, December 12, 15:31 /ITAR-TASS/. Cadet corps in three Russian republics have been promised federal support to back them as "potential suppliers of future military officers".
Their role has been defined in accords on "corporate assistance" for cadet institutions in the Volga federal district republics of Tatarstan, Bashkortostan and Udmurtia.
Documents have been signed by Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, Presidential Envoy to the Volga Federal District Mikhail Babich, Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov, Bashkortostan President Rustem Khamitov and Udmurtia President Alexander Volkov.
The ministry has promised support for Tatarstan cadets in Nizhnekamsk, Bashkortostan cadets in Ishimbay and Udmurtia cadets in Votkinsk.
They will be given support to develop academic programs and be provided with military and technical equipment, print materials and electronic information resources. There are also plans to help organise patriotic military events.
Defense Minister Shoigu told the signing ceremony that cadet corps were "places where young people receive not only a general education, but also special attention given to basic military training”.
“This process is right, useful and necessary, and we are ready to support it in every way,” he said.
Shoigu said this initiative would help counteract negative developments among the young, helping develop patriotism and high moral character.
"We certainly regard cadet corps as our potential suppliers of future officers,” he noted, adding that the ministry would help cadets choose military training establishments for their further education.
