Who would have thought that cyber troops would appear in our country in the near future. But exactly this, according to the idea of the Ministry of Defense and in particular Sergei Shoigu, should happen before the end of this year.
The new type of troops, which should be formed at the end of 2013, will deal with the fight against hackers and protect the Motherland from cyber threats. He will be responsible for the information security of the Russian Federation, and his main tasks will be monitoring and processing information coming from outside.
Talented programmers, both with experience and those who have just completed their studies in civilian universities, will be recruited to serve in the cyber troops. They will need to undergo linguistic training and learn several foreign languages without fail. Preference will be given to recruits who speak English.
According to Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, the new type of troops will entail the emergence of a new generation of people who will promote military science.
