May 28 - Border Guard Day


Everyone who has ever been involved with the border service remembers what day it is. May 28 is the Day of the border guard. It is possible that this man today, like every year on this date, will get a green cap and remember the time of his border service.

The date of May 28 has become Border Guard Day since 1958. The choice of date is due to the fact that on this day in 1918 the Council of People's Commissars of the RSFSR adopted a decree on the establishment of border guards.

Her responsibilities, as today, included ensuring the inviolability of the borders of our Motherland on land, sea and in the sky. And although the Russian border guards consider the beginning of their stories 1918, border protection has been carried out since the foundation of the state in Ancient Russia. And already the first Russian Tsar Ivan III assigned the task of protecting the borders to specially selected people for this. He sent warriors to the border cities of his state in order to protect its inhabitants from sudden enemy raids.

From then until today, border guards have been serving, protecting the borders of our state and the tranquility of its citizens.

The protection of the state border is the suppression of its violation by individuals and groups, the identification and detention of those involved in establishing channels for the supply of prohibited goods, this is the seizure of the Red Book animals produced by poachers, the suppression of the supply of narcotic drugs to the country. This is a wide range of such important activities that are directly related to the country's security.

May 28 - Border Guard Day

The editors of "Military Review" sincerely congratulate all those who have served and are serving on the border of our country with Happy Frontier Day. We want to wish the FSB border officials decent service and prosperity.

      You served a long time, gray hair at the temples,
      But with your soul you are there in the border troops.
      And you will always remember your native outpost,
      After all, there is never a former border guard!

          and the first battle they took ...

          And then they obeyed the NKVD, which is not much remembered today. They were the most combat-ready units.

    Happy holiday and best wishes!
    During the short-term Sino-Vietnamese war, I had to spend more than a month at the outpost in the Khasansky district of Primorsky kr. Every day, with two of his fighters and accompanied by a border guard sergeant, I had to go to the line for visual reconnaissance in four small Chinese villages. Therefore, I am familiar with the organization of service and the life of border guards. Service is not easy, responsible, and most importantly, necessary for the country. Once again with the holiday.

    Now I'm watching a movie about Nikita Fedorovich Karatsupu! He died in the mid-90s, unable to withstand all this whistle on the bones of the USSR)
    By his example, more than one generation of border guards has grown!
    Happy holiday Borders! The enemy is still the same as in the days of the USSR, only more insidious and cynical ..

    Not everyone is given such a right,
    On the first meters of the motherland to walk,
    Where is the only house - the frontier post,
    Kohl had a chance to serve you on it.
