  • Konstantin Kobets dies

    MOSCOW, December 31 (RIA Novosti) – Former-Deputy Defense Minister, and General of the Russian Army, Konstantin Kobets, has died in Moscow at the age of 73, Russia's Defense Ministry Press Office confirmed on Monday.

    “The funeral for General of the Army Kobets will take place on January 2,” the press release adds. Defense Minister Shoigu has established a commission under the Deputy Chief of the Russian General Staff, Col. Gen. Alexander Postnikov, to oversee the funeral.

    Konstantin Kobets was born in 1939 in Kiev, and served with the army since 1956. He rose steadily through the ranks. In 1988 he was appointed Chief of USSR Armed Forces' Communications and Deputy Chief of the General Staff, and 1991 he was appointed chairman of the new body – the RSFSR State Committee for Defense and Security.
    “For there is nothing more serious than a lunatic when he comes to the central point of his lunacy.”
