Judge for yourself: All the hot spots of the service are only with this colonel. Three times in the personnel of the Armed Forces promised general positions (rank), but, as they say, who is still there.
Gorobets A.N. received the rank of captain a year earlier, and received a colonel
for 13 years. has someone from the top leadership of the Armed Forces been in the same rank for 13 years?
Because there are no "hairy hands", big money and high-ranking people in our family and relatives
