MOSCOW, December 1. /tass/. The multi-volume scientific work "Senior Officers of a Great Country" was presented as part of the second round of the competition for the State Prize of the Russian Federation named after Marshal of the Soviet Union G. K. Zhukov. The work was presented on Wednesday by Sergey Botsvin, Deputy Head of the Main Personnel Department of the Russian Defense Ministry.
"The Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation decided to put together the entire life history of senior officers, based on accounting records and archival documents in a single publication, and finally close the topic of the disparity of information," he said.
According to Botsvin, the scientific work presents important information for understanding history. "To understand the history of our state, information about those generals who served in the tsarist army and subsequently continued their service in the young Workers' and Peasants' Red Army is of interest," said Botsvin.
"The pages of the publication reflect the fate of all marshals of the Soviet Union and the Russian Federation, as well as admirals of the USSR fleet. Throughout history, 44 military commanders have been awarded these military ranks, except for Stalin Joseph Vissarionovich, who was awarded the title of Marshal of the Soviet Union in March 1943, and in June 1945 he became generalissimo, and the NKVD representative Beria Lavrenty Pavlovich," he also stressed.
Moreover, according to the deputy head of the Main Personnel Department of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the pages of the publication reveal the life path of 22 cosmonauts who received military ranks of senior officers.
