The Rear Services of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation (Russian: Тыл Вооружëнных Сил Российской Федерации, transcription: Tyl Vooruzhonnykh Sil Rossiyskoy Federatsii) is a rear of the Russian Armed Forces. It encompasses mainly the Rear Services' Staff, 9 main and central departments and 3 services.

History[edit]

The formation of Russian rear services is commonly attached to the year 1700, when Peter I signed an order On Management of the Grain Supplies of All Military People to okolnichy Yazykov with Elevating Him to Commissary General After That, thus forming the first supply service (Proviantskiy Prikaz). In 1711 all military supply services have been incorporated in the army. However the word "rear" (тыл) as a separate term appeared only in the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905. Shortly after the onset of Operation Barbarossa in 1941, the Russian rear services experienced severe difficulties, which have been fixed after the order On Organization of the Rear Services Management Office of the Red Army.... The Rear Services of the Armed Forces of the Soviet Union were renamed to the Rear Services of the Armed Forces of Russia in 1991.
