42nd Motorized-Rifle Division [58th Army]
of the Ministry of Defense submitted a proposal to the Russian
president to subordinate the formation directly to the military district.
Vladimir Putin supported this proposal. As Sergey Ivanov reported, the
re-subordination of the division (which is still attached to the 58th Combined
Arms Army) is associated with the need for effective command and control,
as well as with the fact that when the formation shifts to contract-based
service, the district command will be able to resolve any issues that may
arise on his own without having to go through other levels in between"
