(Russian, Voennyi Prikaz or Prikaz Voennykh Del), the central state institution in Russia in charge of the recruitment of military personnel (jointly with the Pomestnyi [Service Fief] Prikaz, the Razriadnyi Prikaz [an older war department], and other departments), the formation of regiments and reinforcement detachments, the administration of commanders (such as appointments and promotions), the financing of the regular army, and uniforms (it controlled the uniform chanceries). It was set up on June 23, 1701 (based on the prikaz under General Commissar la. F. Dolgorukov, which existed from 1700 to 1701). It was abolished in 1711 with the formation of the Main Military Chancery, which took over the main functions of the Military Department.
