The youngest general in Russia
High rank of General of the Interior Ministry of Chechen PresidentThe Republic was received on November 11, 2009 by order of the Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. As they say in the official message, this title was appropriated to Ramzan Kadyrov for actions aimed at combating illegal military entities.

It is to him that the residents of Chechnya are grateful for the long-awaited peace and the opportunity to live in a new, beautiful and prosperous republic.
Through hardship to the stars
The news that the President of the Chechen Republic- Now the youngest general in Russia, many skeptics have caused a smile. Like, this is all arranged and done by the Kremlin specifically to once again emphasize the privilege of Kadyrov.
Particularly dissatisfied were those who remember the darkthe past of the head of the republic. At the beginning of the first confrontation against the federalization of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov along with his father was on the side of the separatists. Only after a few years, already during the second war, he went over to the side of the government. True, this did not help to save his father from a terrorist attack, as a result of which he died. But such a decision for Kadyrov was truly fatal. When the question arose of who will lead the republic after the end of hostilities, there is no doubt in the parliament of Chechnya: the young Kadyrov is the one who was needed by the region.
On the side of the opponents of conferring the rank of Kadyrov"the general of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia" became and employees of service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. They are sure that it is impossible to get to the rank of general so quickly. First you need to get at least a major, then a lieutenant colonel, to rise to the rank of colonel, and only then, after many years of service, you may be able to become a general. But history knows a lot of cases when young talents managed to manage huge military divisions.
Young generals in history
The very word "general" is associated with the majoritypeople with valor, courage and an outstanding mind. To achieve such a high rank, you need to go through many obstacles, get battle scars and do something outstanding. As history shows, those who received the title of "General of the Army of Russia" at a young age, rarely lived to be old.
Many young adventurers got their rankDuring the Second World War. Then valor and courage were indicators, to which all were equal. The most rapid take-off in the military field was made by the fighter pilot Grigory Kravchenko. During the two years of the war, he managed to excel in battles against the Japanese and move from the rank of senior lieutenant to lieutenant-general. Courageously died in 1943, during the battle.
The youngest general in Russia is a veryhonorable. In the First World War, he received two young commanders - Sergei Lazo and Mikhail Tukhachevsky. The first commanded the front in his 24 years, the second - at 25 years, just a few years after graduation.
Merits of Kadyrov

He also has the Order of Courage and "For Services to the Fatherland" of the fourth degree. For public activities and the establishment of public law and order received several medals.
