The Guard of Russia celebrates its 320th birthday

79

The Day of the Guards of Russia, established by the decree of President Vladimir Putin in 2000, has become one of the memorable dates connecting the most glorious pages stories our Fatherland, indicating the continuous connection of times, the age-old continuity of generations of its heroic defenders.


Both the creation and the revival of elite military units in the armed forces and the naval navy of our country are inextricably linked with two of its outstanding rulers - Emperor Peter the Great, who in 1700 for the first time conferred an honorary guards status on the Semyonovsky and Preobrazhensky regiments and Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin, who, in the role of People's Commissar of Defense of the USSR, revived the military elite in the Red Army.

For centuries the Russian and later Soviet guards marched to victory and glory in the smoke and fire of numerous battles. That is why the black and gold ribbon became their symbol, symbolizing precisely these formidable attributes of the battles in which the guardsmen of our Fatherland again and again proved their right to be called the best of the best warriors.

In the Russian Empire, the guard was not only a military elite, but also a real "privileged class" that decided the fate of the state, elevated rulers and sovereigns to the throne and overthrew them. In the Red and Soviet armies, this high rank was assigned to units and formations not "by birthright", but for the specific courage and heroism shown by their soldiers and commanders in the defense of the Motherland.

The Russian army "inherited" the guard along with the glorious military traditions of grandfathers and great-grandfathers, who defeated the hordes of invaders and invaders who came to our land. Its existence is a guarantee that these traditions are alive in the descendants of the victors of the Great Patriotic War, the heroes of Afghanistan and other wars and conflicts, in which the Soviet guards covered themselves with unfading glory.

Today in our army and navy there are more than a hundred subunits and units, proudly bearing the honorary title of the Guards. The servicemen of many of them confirmed their right to this status, participating in hostilities during the conflicts in Chechnya and Georgia, on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic. There is no doubt that, if necessary, the Russian guard will stand up for the Fatherland today. But let her service continue to be held under a peaceful sky.

We sincerely wish this to all compatriots whose life path has been overshadowed by the glorious guards banner or is being accomplished under it today on their holiday - the Day of the Guards of Russia!

        And the Real Guards - Happy Holidays!

        Join us!
        It is customary to celebrate the Day of the Russian Guard on September 2. The occasion for the official recognition of this holiday was the 300th anniversary of the Russian Guard.
        The Imperial Guard, consisting of the Semenovsky and Preobrazhensky regiments, appeared in Russia during the reign of Peter I. In 1918 it was dissolved and created again only during the Patriotic War. Military units, formations of the Armed Forces and ships that distinguished themselves in battles were given the title of "Guards".
        The modern Russian guard includes the Kantemirovskaya tank division, the Taman motorized rifle division, a separate motorized Sevastopol brigade, the Carpathian-Berlin motorized rifle division, line formations of the Airborne Forces, units and ships of the Navy, units of the air force and ground forces.
        And Soviet Guardsmen with the Holiday too!

          Ragnar! Why are the strategists offended ?!
          It is clear that the Strategic Missile Forces did not take part in the great wars (although ... not started, the averted war is also a victory).
          There are guards units and formations in the Strategic Missile Forces, even if they received this badge of valor by inheritance, but they wear it quite worthily.

            Here is the real Guard! Who defended life and thereby won immortality.

      If we follow the etymology of the very concept of "guard", then it is translated from Italian guardia means "protection, protection". In fact, it reflects the purpose of the above federal service - the protection of state sovereignty and security, in its case, from internal enemies. The "guard" has many meanings. This is the privileged elite part of the army, and the collective designation of the armed formations of the White movement, and the voluntary armed detachments of the RSDLP (b) that made the revolution. There are also a lot of special parts called this title. Today we celebrate the formation of the guards by Peter 1. It is generally accepted that on this day in 1700 the amusing Semyonovsky and Preobrazhensky regiments were officially called guards for the first time. The birthday of the Soviet Guard, the sign of which I myself wore on my jacket for 7 years, was September 18, 1941 in honor of the first victories of the Red Army units over the German invaders. So, as I said, the "guard" has many meanings, and they do not contradict each other.

          Unfortunately, in 1991 no one could have saved the corpse of the USSR. Let me remind you that by this time the USSR had already begun to disintegrate into pieces, and the Union could not find the strength to resist this. He was already doomed.

            But here I disagree, all the people were for the USSR, but if instead of the humpbacked, for example, Putin was, then the USSR could have been saved. Literally six months, and in 1992, a powerful economic crisis would have erupted in the United States, and so the resources of the USSR saved the United States.

              What could the people do in an economic impasse that worked for the active nationalist minorities in the leaderships of the republics? The people in Ukraine were not in favor of the war and the Maidan, but 1% of the population managed to carry out a coup and, as we see, quite successfully for themselves.

              And it would be better if Putin would be instead of the middle and late Brezhnev. Unfortunately, the story cannot be replayed. And to assume what would have happened if ..... this is from the category of alternative history - interesting, but not productive. Gorbachev, of course, still that "gift", but he received the country in an economically killed state. Think for yourself who would arrange "perestroika" in a prosperous state. And after all, Andropov also admitted that radical reforms are urgently needed. But the state of the cadre was able to give birth to only that insignificance that gave birth in the end.

                The nature of the coup lies on a completely different plane and has nothing to do with the economy of the USSR. Because economic models have fundamentally opposite objectives. The socialist one is built according to the planning principle and is not intended to extract super-profits from the sale of resources or a product of production. Capitalism is based on the profit of a narrow group of people and overproduction in it is inevitable. The socialist, planned one is built in the interests of the entire population, where social guarantees come first. First of all, a sufficient number of jobs and other goodies. And the contradictions in society, as a result, are minimal, since there is no property stratification and the associated excesses of relations between citizens. They have nothing to share, since private property is prohibited. Ideally, of course, but if there are phenomena, then they are minimal.
                Andropov is a reborn, he conceived the restoration of capitalism in the USSR, and he pushed into the Politburo an agent of the Humpback Freemasons, who themselves admitted in 1989 that the USSR was at the peak of its economic power. There was no collapse, everything worked like a clock. Correction was needed in the direction of increasing the output of consumer goods, reducing the defense industry, since the idea of ​​the power export of socialism was temporarily abandoned and a partial reorientation of its scientific and production base towards the creation of high-quality consumer goods. And all this is combined with a tough class struggle, to which the Kremlin old people simply hammered.

                  Excuse me for being straightforward, I don't want to offend anyone, but everything that you have written here is a confusion of an amateur. You, apparently, have forgotten, or may not have seen what was happening in Russia in 1991-93, as well as the social economy before 1991, and therefore you think of some kind of myths that have no historical basis. You cannot see the country's economy outside the kitchen window. You will look at the external and internal debts, the balance of foreign trade, the rate of reduction of foreign exchange reserves. Well, old people in Chelyabinsk, remember the time when the first cards / coupons for food were introduced in the city ... Early 80s. A shortage of meat and meat products began to appear in trade in the late 70s. At the factories of the city, the practice of purchasing canned meat and selling them to employees bypassing the public trading network began. This is in a city with a population of over one million, in the Urals, the stronghold of the state !!!

                    You are talking nonsense. The entire shortage of basic necessities was created artificially in order to inflame a revolt against Soviet power. With my own eyes I watched the wagons guarded by the Vovans at the freight stations in Moscow, which were strictly forbidden to unload. Once again - the country worked and produced everything necessary for life, and this mess was arranged in order to grab and arrange. The coup from above always succeeds, the powerful figures handy to clean the clearing. Lukashenka brought the working class out into the street and the bourgeoisie broke off. In Moscow, there was no one to do this, ordinary communists, who understood where the wind was blowing, did not listen and were openly pressed.

                        It is the 91st. Nowhere, except for Moscow, with its high concentration of currency dealers, guild workers and liberal anti-laggensy, in the RSFSR, they did not even think to get busted, although life was much harder. And it all began with placing a mishandled Cossack one small step on the Kremlin stool, very cunningly introducing into the minds of people the idea of ​​the possibility of personal enrichment, with calls from the rostrum - "more socialism."
                        In a socialist economy based on a plan, there can be no crises, because there is no provocation of it - speculative games and the pursuit of margins. Even with low-skilled cadres, Stalin in 10 years created a powerful industrial power, without which we would most likely lose the fight in a united bourgeois Europe. What then to say about developed socialism 60s-70s? With its powerful scientific and technical potential. The plane of the restoration of the power of the zhrebetniks is, quite unambiguously, in the human nature and relaxation of the aged Central Committee. We slammed the counter under our nose. The class struggle never ends, they forgot Stalin's precepts.

                        Well, okay. You, apparently, are young, and on personal impressions build your view on entities that are not covered by this look. This is the wrong way to form a worldview. Moreover, your personal impressions are based on the situation in Moscow. And my personal experience covers the outback of Russia, and at least since 1975. Plus to this, any literature - statistical collections against the background of promises in the materials of the congresses of the CPSU, memoirs of party leaders, where among the heap of lies there are grains of true impressions, etc. My view of the causes and origins of the collapse of the USSR is, of course, very subjective, but I am trying to build it up, and as a result of this it may be somewhat transformed. I think it's okay. You cannot rest your horn on the ground and ossify on the basis of school textbooks.

What is "low-skilled personnel", the initial start, the methods of advanced training, the level at the beginning of WWII, the real achievements of industrialization, the balance of the state of economies and technologies of the opposing sides, and as a result the price of winning a fight .... Add the state of society in peacetime after 60s, and the possibility of imposing those methods with modernity. Much in your perception of socialist life can change somewhat.

These are those who are now the "elite" after the coup. Not the one who created it with his own hands, labor, but the one who sold and put the margin in his pocket. And they dictate disgusting, inhuman rules for the life of society. Zakhrebetnik is a bourgeois.

    And if not poking around in the etymology of the word, but look at the real state of affairs? Since the creation of the Guard, it has never been involved in "protecting the state from internal enemies." That was why there was a gendarme corps, "blue uniforms". And by the way, not only the guardsmen, but also the army men considered it shameful to shake hands with the “gays”. And I do not understand for what such merits Zolotov's establishment was called the Guard!

    Speaking of continuity, I would not shyly hide the fact that in the history of our country there was a period when the guardsmen openly, both in Russia and abroad, were called janissaries who did not know how to handle weapons, but posed the main threat to the government they did not like and disliked them emperors. It was the attempts to restore at least some order in the guards regiments of St. Petersburg that became the main reason for the murder of Peter III and Paul I (who dared to demand from the Life Guards the same as from the soldiers and, especially, officers, army units - that is, normal carrying service). The main thing here is not to confuse with what kind of guardsmen we want continuity: with the regiments of Peter I of the times of Poltava and Lesnaya, with the Soviet guardsmen of the Great Patriotic War, or with the always drunken brawlers of Elizaveta Petrovna's life company, and the Izmailovsky regiment of Catherine II, which all the rest the regiments of St. Petersburg were later accused of the fact that its soldiers "exchanged the legitimate emperor for pennies and vodka" - the situation was such that the Izmailovites had to issue live ammunition.
    The main thing is not to confuse traditions, goals and objectives.

      Valery,
      everything is so, but you shouldn't blame the Guard.
      The Guard was the vanguard of the nobility and clearly defended "class" interests.
      Even Peter the Great considered this.
      And all these revoltes are just elections - elections, by-elections and "zeroing" if something goes wrong.
      The same guardsmen fought like lions on the battlefields - knights!

        Edward hi, there were those who "became famous" for the fact that they covered the fields of completely different "battles" with their bodies. For those "merits" they were much more appreciated, carrying out elections through erections.

            Totally agree with you. The REAL do not participate in clowning, do not roll around on lawns in their own rygotin and do not run around with sewer hatches overhead. And they quietly gather and celebrate without pathos, because it is inappropriate when someone is mutilated and the dead have to be remembered. It's really a shame for the legacy of the once Great Country in the form of all its faceless fragments and "leftovers" today.

      The main thing here is not to confuse with what kind of guardsmen we want continuity: with the regiments of Peter I of the times of Poltava and Lesnaya, with the Soviet guardsmen of the Great Patriotic War, or with the always drunken brawlers of Elizaveta Petrovna's life company, and the Izmailovsky regiment of Catherine II

      Yes, of course, I would not like to be confused. But life shows that miracles of valor and heroism in battle and drunken brawl in the fountains of Gorky Park are performed by the same people. Because these people are not quite ordinary in nature. Just as easily they are the first to rise to the attack and fearlessly take a mortal risk, just as easily they (not all, but quite a significant part) can disregard the rules of public safety in a peaceful life. And often nothing can be done about it ...

        There is a fundamental difference: some in retirement are weird (this can be condescending), while others are in the service. Like Elizabeth's life-companions (a grenadier company - 300 grenadiers, and 64 "salary ranks" of the Preobrazhensky regiment), with whom no one could do anything until her death. Because either "Mother" was afraid of them, or she was too sentimental: she forgave any antics to the former "benefactors".

          I don’t know how important this difference is. But I think it is absurd to approach the assessment of the actions of people from the epochs of three hundred years ago from the point of view of today's morality. Times were different and the assumptions of the behavior of privileged groups of people have since changed dramatically. I just wanted to note that the guardsmen who became them for personal merits are often a little "crazy" (in a good way), because "normal" feats are performed very rarely, they talk more from the sofa. And this line goes from the first guardsmen to the present ones. Because for each case, its own character is suitable. And a person's character is manifested in all life's vicissitudes - both in war and in the world. I think so.

      It was the attempts to restore at least some order in the guards regiments of St. Petersburg that became the main reason for the murder of Peter III and Paul I (who dared to demand from the Life Guards the same as from the soldiers and, especially, officers, army units - that is, normal carrying service).

      You can also remember Anna Leopoldovna, whose attempt to send a guard to the next war with Sweden turned into a guards revolt and Elizabeth's accession.

And therefore it was necessary to urgently decide on which flag itself is the symbol of the state. This task was to be solved by a Special Meeting.

Of course, there will be no evidence that Peter and Alexei Mikhailovich were gearing up before the Dutch. As well as the fact that the Black-Yellow-White flag in the tricolor tweed appeared under Peter. The attraction of the Civil War and the Great Patriotic War is generally meaningless.

    A bit from Wikipedia
    The forerunners of the Russian guard were the amusing troops of Peter I, who were trained in the "foreign system." In 1692, the amusing ones were reduced to the 3rd Moscow elective regiment under the command of A.M. Golovin (already divided into two regiments: Preobrazhensky and Semyonovsky). In 1700, both of these regiments became known as Life Guards. Leib-guardia (German Leibgarde from Leib "body" + Latin guardia "protection, protection") is the honorary name of selected military units designed to protect the person and residence of the monarch... It's up to you to judge what is closer to the historical Russian concept of the Life Guard, the Soviet-type Guard or the Russian Guard.
    Before the October Revolution, in Russia, if I am not mistaken, there were 23 Life Guard regiments, 3 Life Guard brigades, 1 Life Guard battalion and 1 Life Guard detachment. And each of these units had their own badge.

    Now, of course, they have vulgarized it with this "Rossguard" in fact, the troops of the Interior Ministry. As if it had been done on purpose, so too with the renaming of the police to the police (policemen during the occupation), I have such an assassination ..

    In the Red and Soviet armies this high rank was assigned to units and formations not "by birthright"

    But no. For example, rocket artillery units (guards mortars) were appropriated "in advance". I don't know exactly about the Airborne Forces. In the training guards units, the prefix "guards." to the rank he had only a permanent staff, but some cadets after graduation and the remaining half a year for additional training also received it.
