The website of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation indicates that Voronov at various times held the positions of deputy commander of the troops of the Western Military District and the Northern Fleet, each time being responsible for logistics. When he was appointed to a position in the Southern District is not reported.

In parallel, there are frequent reshuffles of military leaders in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. This is attributed to the high losses of the Russian military and failures at the front during the full-scale aggression against Ukraine, launched on February 24.
