Officers and cadets of the Military Academy of Military Air Defense named after Marshal of the Soviet Union A.M. Vasilevsky was congratulated on his birthday with a veteran of the Great Patriotic War, organizing a military-patriotic action. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.


The action took place in the village of Kolodnya Smolensk. On the day of the 96th anniversary of Mikhail Grigoryevich Gorbachev, in front of the house where the veteran lives, the military academy, the students of the Yunarmiya, solemnly marched in front of the house where the veteran lived, in honor of the veteran, the song "We are on duty" was performed.

The leadership of the academy and students congratulated the veteran on his 96th birthday and thanked him for his contribution to the Victory.


Mikhail Grigorievich Gorbachev came to the Volkhov Front in the battalion of communications in 1943, fought near Leningrad, participated in the liberation of Karelia. He went with battles to Keningsberg, where he met the end of the war. In August 1945, he participated in battles with the Japanese in Manchuria. Demobilized in 1947. He has numerous awards, an honorary signalman.

It should be noted that the last action of the Ministry of Defense is far from the first, recently the military department has been paying more and more attention to veterans, especially those who, due to their age, can no longer attend public events. For such veterans, the Ministry of Defense holds individual congratulations.

    The correct undertaking. Young people. Attention is never superfluous to anyone, and only to our Veterans, to whom we owe our lives ...

          Even in the second photo I recognize the native Smolensk village, the same huts that 60 years ago, and the same road, as Tvardovsky said "Do you remember Alyosha of the Smolensk road," you will not confuse these villages with anything.

            This, by the way, is not a village, but a city. More precisely, its very outskirts. In the center of a respected person they could not settle.

              Yes, now it is Smolensk, and I wrote that the village was and remains, as it was 60 years ago. I have not been there for 56 years, but I find out. I then lived in another village, not far from these places Krasny Bor. When we traveled by train, we already packed our bags in Kolodn. Nostalgia.

      After reading the comments I thought that it would be possible to work under the “Timurovites”, help around the house.
      The parade was held by a veteran - well. And he returned to the house, and everything is still there and waiting for his permanent assistants ... So it would be nice to help.

    It’s good that the minus on the street and the ground froze, and so in front of the veteran’s house the mud was kneaded ...
    And to be honest, this is all ostentatious and not real concern for veterans. The camera showed care and respect and forgot about the person until the next news occasion.

        Because I live with you in the same country and see the attitude of the authorities towards veterans. Usually they are remembered on the eve of Victory Day and forgotten until next year.

          Well, a word about our country ... A village in the Kuban, a district center. Veteran organizations operate, events are held, and congratulate them on holidays and birthday. It all depends on the local leadership.

          But it seems to me that in different. And children and grandchildren should take care of veterans, IMHO, before the authorities. And remind the authorities. The authorities will not be able to organize daily care and help ... They don’t have such opportunities ...

            I give you an example of caring for veterans:
            This year, 10 apartments were handed over to Sevastopol veterans on Victory Day. After the media reported that they were unsuitable for housing, investigators began checking. The granddaughter of one of the veterans told reporters that instead of the whole apartment, the pensioner was provided with half: “odnushka” is divided by a partition, two entrance doors are installed from the entrance, partially missing communications.

              Affixed minuses is a reaction to the actions of the authorities?
              Or didn’t I need to give a similar example, so as not to destroy your illusions?

                Once again I say, it all depends on local authorities. Require it. By the way, according to a respected veteran ... This neighborhood in Smolensk is a remote, private sector. There probably are no amenities. The military should have dragged Ostrovsky by the scruff or whoever is leading his hands in the Smolensk region now.

    A parade on the background of a pile of debris and a dirt road in ice? When he was at the last parade on May 9th in his city, he was only disgusted: they launched some mothers with carriages dressed as tanks and camouflage, then there were all kinds of mummers and other cosplayers, caught up with all kinds of merchants and turned everything into another commercial holiday, I saw a couple of veterans, some aunt handed a huge bouquet to one, he began to refuse saying I can’t carry it, she blurted something and ran away with displeasure, he wandered wearily with a bouquet looking at hundreds of posted tricolors, I looked at others and in my opinion they are no longer understood that they were celebrating, for them it was another day off.

      Well in Smolensk, the hole is still the same. I lived in the city and I know. This is about trash. What I think is done right in front of the house. Maybe he can’t even get out ... Years. How few of you are left, dear veterans.

        We still have many sidewalks from the time of the USSR, but half-wrecked, but at least some, but each time we close Lenin and shoot another rotten film about the terrible Soviet Union.

    The background for the parade is oh, oh, very impressive! Well, at least the loaf, like that blockade, was not presented. Or...?
    Cadets marching along one Russian misfortune under the command of another Russian misfortune. Oil painting.

    Well, that still remains. In our city there was the only communication school that trained specialists for the Strategic Missile Forces. Considered superfluous.

    We have a lot of sidewalks left since the days of the USSR, dilapidated but at least some

    Well this is the local government to blame. In our city, on all the central streets, asphalt was replaced with tiles. And if in the asphalt on the sidewalks of the pit, then such a mayor must be driven into the neck.

    Most of my life is connected with air defense. Created in the NII-33 KRL control interceptors. With the Leningrad (St. Petersburg) Academy. Mozhaysky also worked very fruitfully. The head of the departments of this Academy were my supervisors and opponents of my dissertation candidate (Drabkin A. Zernov N. Bychkov N.) And then my doctoral dissertation. He was associated with work with the head of the Academy Tuchkov. He himself had to give lectures at the Kharkov Academy. My father is an artilleryman, a major died on the Leningrad Front on 27.12.1941/XNUMX/XNUMX

    They did the right thing, because after not a very long time there will not be a single Great Patriotic War Participant, even those who were a kid, such as the son of a regiment.

    here is a veteran, at the age of 97 it is interesting to look at the marching cadets. insanity of the authorities grows stronger. the veteran needs free medications, a medical nurse so that she’s always there, constantly, care and care are needed, all the same, only think, 97 years old for almost a century! and the power of soldiers leads marching, nonsense.
