      I agree with you, Colleague. To inspect everything Soviet is fundamentally wrong. But here, it seems to me, the emphasis is on "... Assigning a military unit ....... an honorary title ...", etc. I think that those who were lucky enough to serve not just in the military unit, but in the Guards, for example, or awarded with orders, felt pride, since it was in this military unit! I must note that in Soviet times military units and formations received honorary titles or were awarded, as a rule, for participation in certain military operations. Well, if, thank God, this is not yet, then who is stopping us from reviving the names of units and divisions from our history. After all, we really have someone and something to be proud of! But HOW to do it; one way or another, maybe a debatable question ...

    Alexandria Regiment. It sounds no worse than Semenovsky or Preobrazhensky. Or the Kantemirov division.
    Personally, I see a positive point in this, because service in such units simply obliges military personnel to study the glorious past of these military units and, as a result, the history of the Russian state. And to study by archival data, by museum exhibits, and not by that western city ... well, on the Internet and in cinema, with which they are trying to replace real historical facts. A living example is Ukraine with protoucra and a famine. And the Baltic states with occupation.

    There were only two Brigades in the Samara Garrison, one was relocated to the West ... Which part? 15th Brigade? 23rd Guards Omsbr relocated to Valuyki, Belgorod Region ...

    And there are no regiments in Samara.

      There are really no regiments in Samara, but Shoigu does not even say that the regiment he said is "one of the units of the garrison" ...
      Therefore, if we take his words literally, it could well be a separate battalion of electronic warfare, which is on Panova St.
      Although ... the headquarters of the 2nd Guards Combined Arms Red Banner Army on Frunze St. is also a numbered part. But, this will already be a bust, and it’s not in tradition that these administrations give such high-sounding names, and then they will rattle in cabinets with Hussar spurs)) )
      P.S. Here the local government runs into the equestrian club --- yes ... But then we will have hussars, but there may be dumb horses ...

    Are true traditions over? Do we attach artificial traditions? What does today's connection have to the German empress?

        Also say that we have a "not real king" (C).
        There is a king, so the hussars must be wassat
        I offer them a distinctive sign to return those past hussars of the regimental badge arr. 1918. After all, they renounced the royal symbols then, how not to respect their last will ...?

    The part in which he served was located in the former barracks of Cuirassiers of His Royal Highness the Duke of Holstein-Gottorp. In memory of the immortal cuirassiers, too, probably would have been.
