“The information contained in the material, has nothing to do with the truth,” said state Secretary — Deputy defense Minister army General Nikolai Pankov. According to him, over the past three years the number of active military training centers and military departments in higher educational institutions increased from 68 to 72. “In accordance with the instructions of the President 2014 by the Ministry of defence have been trained in civilian universities not only officers, but also soldiers and sergeants of a stock. Today the Department of defense completes a study of the question of opening in the near future the military departments in three Federal universities”, — said the Deputy Minister.

Commenting on the project, available on a single portal of regulatory and legal acts, Nikolai Pankov explained that the document only defines the “rules of procedure of the reorganization of the educational military centers and the military departments, and no more”.

And on the agenda the question is not to reduce, but, on the contrary, expansion of the list military-registration specialties for training in the military departments”.

— Military training, which students take in leading universities, is very important from the point of view of formation at children of citizenship, — said the “MK” rector, National research University — Higher school of Economics Yaroslav Kuzminov (for the military profession, at the time, received the Economics faculty at Moscow state University. University, the commander of an infantry company). — Special savings the abolishment of military departments do not give, the more that allocates funds to them, not DoD, and universities themselves. But the drop in the quality of socialization in the leading universities of the country will certainly result. It is no secret that students of such universities often Dier in some levity and selfishness. And the presence of the military Department is disciplinarum, teaches to execute commands. That is why (a long time ago not as an additional factor to attract students) the rectors of leading universities and appreciate the presence of the military departments. By the way, to the HSE competition for this Department is quite high: two people per site.
