        Happy holiday, colleagues! It always surprises me: why was it necessary to divide the holiday into two different ones? Would celebrate together on the same day. And then I have a holiday - the day of air defense, on the second Sunday of April.

      I join in the congratulation. However, doubts torment me: is not the enemy air defense system painted on the right flask? Is this ideological sabotage?
