It should be noted that in recent years this is not the first attempt to disguise one hundred percent of the Russian army to form a new standard that meets the requirements of the time. The first large-scale attempt was undertaken in the past, Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov. According to various estimates, the Russian army is dressing up cost taxpayers at about $ 25 billion. rubles. How much will the introduction of the newest form of the Russian budget, and how much money has been spent to develop it while you can only guess.
In any case, new milestone in the history of modern military uniforms of the Russian army did not begin at the moment, but back in 2007, when the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation had made a number of statements about the need for reform. The then Minister of Defence Anatoly Serdyukov took the initiative to modernize the military form. After that, the Deputy Defense Minister Vladimir Isakov told the media that the reform of the military uniforms really have plans defense ministry, while among the developers and the newest form of her designs was named a recognizable Russian designer Valentin Yudashkin. In the end, it specifically outlines defeated in the announced competition and the development of new uniforms took about 2 years.

The introduction of the newest forms resulted in a number of configurations that can not be overlooked. So while it has changed the location of the shoulder straps, they moved from the shoulders to the sleeves and chest soldiers. In addition to the army appeared close-fitting coat, elements odezhki to "Velcro", the officers for the first time in the history of the armed forces appeared sweaters. Also in the army were to be abolished foot bindings and boots, but to achieve their full substitution in the preceding control of the Defense Ministry, and failed.
Brand new shape with the passage of time began to cause more prirekany and discontent on the part of the military.

This remark followed prirekaniya quality Velcro (shaggy), fabric (torn), buttons (mulled thread) threads (feeble). The main disadvantage was the newest form of recognition of the fact that she is fine and happy to absorb water, but for all that it evaporates without hunting and bad holds heat at temperatures below -15 degrees outside.
All this has become a prerequisite for the fact that in November 2012, Valentin Yudashkin issued an official statement saying that it has no relation to the modern military uniform, explaining that the military at one time without the help of others brought in significant adjustments to the model. That is to reduce the cost of production used and other thermal insulation fabric. At the same time, journalists have read that from yudashkinskoy form to display only those elements of the cut.

According to a representative of the Defense Ministry, the newcomer will be sewn form of blended fabric consisting of 65% cotton and 35% of polymer materials.
