Well, I suppose it might be a kind of political and emotional issue for some forum members, so I want to apologize in advance.

NO CORPORAL, NO STARSHINA AND NO JUNIOR LIEUTENANT???

And the officer ranks are similar to those used by the Imperial Russian Army but there's no rank of Staff Captain. smilies-05

This is a good example of a stupid eclectic system created by outsiders. But what could one expect from such criminal and terroristic entities as DNR/LNR?

In regards to the omission of ranks, could it be because:
1. They're basing it off of the ranks of 'advisers,'
2. 'Volunteers,' or
3. The organization/size of the Rebel Forces, or
4. Trying to set them apart from/aligned with the Ukraine/The West, or
5. Ego, or
6. Some combination of the above?

It might account for the skips in the order. I'm leaning towards Number 6, especially since the major general rank has two stars?

This is creativity of Russian monarchists and it has no relation to reality. Igor Strelkov really a fan of the white movement times of the civil war, but it is his personal preference. Militias Novorossia used uniforms and equipment of the Russian manufacture 2000s. Insignia use the same. The basis of the militia were veterans of the war in Avganistane, so that it is easier to use Soviet / Russian system of modern titles if they use rank insignia at all.
