** There are a ridiculous number of other senior officer academies ''alone''--the USSR had [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_military_academies more]] than any other country, and an even greater number of junior schools. Russia is left with far more than they could realistically need. On the other hand, Soviet Army ''did'' need much more officers than it's common, because due to lack of the [[SergeantRock professional NCO corps]], many positions that in other armies would've been filled by [=NCOs=] were considered an officer's billet, and on the other side the Soviet standing army was gigantic.
** Undergraduate officer training and officer training school are ususlly the same thing under the Soviet doctrine, called a ''voyennoe uchilische'' (military teaching facility). The military academy is another beast of another stripe, attended by senior officers and providing doctorates in military sciences, necessary if you want to be a general. There are also military schools attached to civilian universities, called ''voyennaya kafedra'', a kind of ROTC that train MildlyMilitary {{Ensign Newbie}}s that go then straight to reserve; after the fall of the Union, they aren't as numerous and remain only in several universities.
