Russian term or phrase: от майора и выше уже одно продовольствие
Старший сержант, 2 года института, воспитанный, простой, приличный, симпатичный парень. Я очень его жалею. Ему не давали дружить со мной начальники. От майора и выше уже одно продовольствие (если...), но я не настолько низка. Одной рукой беру подарки, а другой по морде расплачиваюсь.
(Из фронтового дневника.)

Здесь имеется в виду, что начальники не прочь приударить за девушкой-бойцом, а взамен одарить ее подарками (продовольствием).

quid pro quo (harassment?)


Explanation:
Например:
With senior officers it was invariably a quid pro quo kind of arrangement/relationship..

quid pro quo harassment involves a supervisory figure hinting at or offering to give something the employee wants in exchange for satisfying the supervisor’s sexual demands.

agree  Rashid Lazytech: Возможно, там отсылка к фразе «одно продовольствие и никакого удовольствия»? P.S. Я имел в виду, что ухажеры в чине майора и выше одаривали ее не только продуктами питания, но и другими подарками.

  -> Нет, не думаю. Отсылка этого (супер) кривого исходника на расплату "натурой". Начальство к ней "подъезжало" одаривая ее гостинцами в расчете на ее благосклонность, а она их динамила: подарки принимала, но не "давала" :)//да, спасибо за agree

starting from the major and above, it is food for pleasure only


Explanation:
or, as Rashid has put it, only food and no pleasure
SO starting from the major and above, it is only food [and no pleasure]

neutral  El oso: You make it sound as if she didn't get no food unless she provided some sort of "pleasure'' first //No, it's not. I think it's way off the mark: she'd still get her military ration even if she rejected the sexual advances.
