One day of a Soviet soldier: chronicle of the 1980s

82

Service in the Soviet Army. For some, these are memories, from which they will be drawn to a "glass of bitter tea", for others - also memories, but already with a touch of positive nostalgia. For many, this is something from the stories of fathers and grandfathers. And the farther the Soviet era goes from us, the more different feelings some will remember about it, while others will try to understand what was lost in 1991.


At one time, the Soviet State Television and Radio Company created documentaries dedicated to the country's Armed Forces, how young soldiers - recruits - and those who have already managed to "trample the parade ground" and, possibly, sniff gunpowder, serve.

The film from 1987 - "One Day of the Soviet Soldier" also belongs to such documentary.

Those who served at that time recall that such documentaries were often called “Visiting a Fairy Tale”. The reason is simple - everything is too “idealistic”, “smoothly combed” in this kind of ribbons.

Despite the fact that such documentaries were mainly of a propaganda nature, nevertheless, today they attract attention. And the voices are different, and the faces are different, and the thoughts too. Everything else ...

The story is told on behalf of the deputy platoon commander:

        Recently I had a dream, I was walking, as it were, young, past the gates of my unit and I think this is where I will serve. And suddenly "stop"! After all, all this has already happened and passed! All this is in the past! ....... Such is the dream. And so I constantly dream of my return to service in my unit. Even today I dreamed. Doesn't let go ...

          I was somewhere up to 45 years old, about once every 6 months, I dreamed that I was standing on the parade ground and suddenly military missiles began to take off from other sites ...
          And that means war ...
          So now the otvetka will arrive and there is no place to hide, the steppe is all around ...
          And such a longing ...

              Can you ever forget that? I'm not talking about dreams. Over the course of his long life, he noticed that in men's conversations about the Army one can remember endlessly ... And everything heavy seems to be cheerful, and his "exploits" are steeper over the years. And any foam has long been washed away by the clear water of memories. And in my dreams, like you, I appeared in my battery, it must be so, no question. Two years will fly by quickly.

      How did you manage to see it there ... Usually such films were filmed in the "court" divisions, in the same Kantemirovskaya or Tamanskaya divisions, but I will not argue, especially since they had a very remarkable banner at post number one.
      I think that now they no longer remember about it.
      Order of the Deputy People's Commissar of Defense on the return of the 24th Berdichevsk Rifle Division of the Battle Red Banner No. 035 February 20, 1944
      In August 1941, in the area of ​​the village of Anyutin, Cherikovsky district, Mogilev region in an unequal battle with the German invaders, three unknown officers of the Red Army were killed, carrying with them the Battle Red Banner of the 24th Rifle Twice Red Banner Samara-Ulyanovsk Iron Division.
      This banner was kept and handed over to the Red Army in 1943 by a former soldier of the 301st Bobruisk Infantry Regiment of the old Russian army, collective farmer Dmitry Tyapin.
      To preserve the glorious military traditions of the oldest division of the Red Army, return the 24th Berdichev Infantry Division the Combat Banner and continue to call it: "24th Berdichevskaya Infantry Samara-Ulyanovsk Twice Red Banner Iron Division."
      For the preservation of the Battle Banner of the oldest division of the Red Army, a patriot of the Soviet Motherland - citizen Dmitry Tyapin, to forever be enlisted in the lists of one of the regiments of the 24th rifle Berdichevskaya Samara-Ulyanovsk twice Red Banner Iron Division and to be awarded the Order of the Red Banner.

          The name has changed. Other Banner parts. Orders and places of glory are not mentioned in the name of the unit. The 24th brigade died along with the Union. Dill made a completely new division. And this new brigade, free from history, heroes and morality, fought in the Donbass.

        I first encountered them at West-81. They have a remarkable sign - there are two mountains in a circle and a winding road. Of the courtiers, they are the only ones who have not been awarded the title of Guards, and this immediately catches the eye. You remember how you filmed advertising films about the army in those days. I was interested in the history of this division even at school. A military family, military traditions, therefore military interests. Before the war, the 24th division was based in Molodechno and Volozhin, Minsk region. In the first days of the war, already near Lida, they got badly. The division's reconnaissance battalion group in the German rear was carrying the Battle Banner. The latter perished near Cherikov. You wrote the rest. My friend was replaced in the Carpathian region, and I in Belarus. As soon as the crested proclaimed independence and, the friend moved to Orjo, to the emergency zone. But what can I say, the collapse of the Union for all of us in the military has cost dearly. It was easier for us in Belarus, as soon as Lukashenko was elected, the country took a step back into the USSR. The local Natsiks were driven under the bench, but looking at the events now, they did not finish off the reptiles.

          Considering that there is no other justification for the existence of the Republic of Belarus, except for the Natsiks, this is not even funny. Just the stupid ones were asked not to bark ahead of time.

    Again, I'll ask two awkward questions.
    1) Do you believe that communism (which according to Marx - with "from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs", the right of each to free development, the withering away of the state as a political entity, consumer goods abundance) can in principle be built?
    2) If the answer to the first question is "yes" - do you think that communism can be built by the methods used by the RSDLP (b) / RCP (b) / VKP (b) / KPSS?
    It is just that the truth, perhaps unpleasant for many, is that without the Marxist-Leninist ideology the Soviet Union does not exist and cannot exist in principle.

    Yes ... Although the film is, of course, propaganda. The day of the Soviet soldier strongly depended on the length of service. For example:
    1. Before dawn, soldiers usually dreamed of completely different compositions.
    2. Instead of charging, the old-timers usually crawled through dryers, lockers and other nychkas to inspect item 1
    3. The morning divorce was a little like a parade on Red Square with an orchestra.
    4. The soldier sitting in the library ... is fantastic.
    5. New equipment is also fantastic, but the wheels polished with shoe polish are true laughing
    ... etc.

      Here is a typical day for a Soviet soldier called in autumn 1977 at the Signal Corps Training Center in Samarkand.
      1. Lifting, washing, making beds, building, divorce for construction work.
      2. Breakfast, divorce for construction work.
      3. Lunch, construction work.
      4. Dinner, (options) a. an outfit for peeling potatoes until 2 am; b. continuation of construction work until 21-30 hours. with the subsequent rise at night for a couple of hours, for studies on the study of the station R-404.
      And so for 6 months with minor variations. Result: - 44 kg of weight and the ability to turn the station on and off.

      Plus, of course. I will add from myself!
      No one would have dared to wake the lock first from those standing on the bedside table. For there is a duty officer and this is his problem. And what about the grandfather of the SA and even the castle? Do not make me laugh.
      I did not consider the brdmki. Bassoon Competition?
      I understand that all this was filmed in some kind of court division. And these shooting they did drink blood.
      The equipment was filmed for combat and not for ordinary training. Therefore, the wheels are in shoe polish. Zampotekh and fighters then, washing away, probably remembered the movie for a long time.
      Are the soldiers in the cafeteria in the cafeteria? With laughter and talk,. There is also a scheduled queue for departments. And if the same castle is out of sorts, then the Moldovans could not have given 5 minutes for lunch.
      Well, in the evening the sergeants and officers drink tea and sing songs to the accordion?
      Well, this is definitely visiting a fairy tale.
      The officer has his own plans for the evening. And even the person on duty will not have such ideas. He would have to check the lights out so that the self-propelled gunners would not be very naughty.

    It depended very much on the place of service. In the tutorial, yes, it looks like a movie. At least, God forbid, an officer or sergeant will see that when they meet a soldier-soldier, they did not salute each other, the outfit is at least provided. Well, in general the charter of the charter.
    In the troops, everything is already completely different. Less charter more life so to speak :)
    In general, partisanship is solid on business trips.

        Yes Yes. In the Air Force, officers and warrant officers usually went in flight or technical uniform. There is no shoulder straps, the garrison is large (the division of strategists), you can't remember everyone, you go and wonder who you are going to meet with a mazut warrant from the fuel and lubricants warehouse or a lieutenant colonel :)

          It was even weirder when Interkosmos began. As soon as the inter-crews arrived for training, foreign journalists came with them.
          And since our space, as we know, was peaceful, almost all the drugs were taken away from them, and those who remained were dressed in "sand" robe.
          It's kind of like pajamas. Sandals on my feet, a beret on my head.
          And the strictest order, apply only by name and patronymic laughing

            Well, in CA there were enough miracles. We had two aircraft repainted at Aeroflot. We worked in Afghanistan and Angola. Crews in Aeroflot uniforms with civil documents flew. Like if they get shot down or put in the wrong place, then there is an excuse. We lost our bearings as a civilian :)

      Especially business trips "to the virgin lands" (this is when the automobile Kampfgruppa gathered annually to harvest crops in agriculture) - there is generally a citizen with all the ensuing and ensuing consequences fellow

    The film is openly propaganda, of course, but the nostalia is real.
    There was a comedy show in the 90s, Masks, one of the series about the army was filmed in our unit, on our parade ground - I watch it periodically, nostalgia is above the roof :)))

    I began my service in a "technical" training ... When the "distribution" time approached, one of the horrors for us cadets was the prospect of putting on red shoulder straps, that is, getting into a motorized rifle unit or an SD! Everyone preferred to wear black ... or blue shoulder straps; that is, get into the "technical" troops or the Airborne Forces! I managed to carry black shoulder straps from the beginning to the end of the service ...

    After being discharged to the reserve, for about five years I often had the same dream that I was being drafted into the army again, although I know for sure that I served. Not that it would be a nightmare, but I really didn't want to. After about the tenth viewing of this dream, I already realized that I could not get out and went to serve, but already as a "grandfather". It became easier, and then it disappeared altogether.
    Anything happened. Both good and bad. He started in a sergeant training (air defense) near Ruza, as an operator of the SRC. Then, the Leningrad separate air defense army of the country. I was at the range, near Sary Shagan, they shot ...

        That's about it.
        I don’t say that there was very fierce hazing in our unit. And besides, I was a sergeant, which relieved me of some of my duties. But still, all the dirty and hard work fell on the first year. And of course, some psychological pressure. In my own platoon, the grandfathers showed off in front of me in full. Another thing is that my "weight and size" characteristics did not allow them to come into close contact with me, and I quite firmly suppressed insubordination where it concerned their official duties.

    I demobilized at 87m. Something looks like the truth. Half - exactly from "come a fairy tale". The sergeants did not refer to "you" as "you" to the privates. Well, everyone had different types of troops. We have combat duty "6 to 6". We slept a day in the 1st year for 5-5,5 hours in total. What nafig chess is there?

    - And over the parade ground the flag - from the frost from red turned pink ... wink
    - I thought, after two winters in the army, I will never warm up ...
    - They will line up for evening verification: Frost, darkness ... And in the club amateur performances rehearse: "... Whose fault is here, maybe I can understand ..." and "Birds fly to us from afar in the spring evening ..." yes

    The program "I Serve the Soviet Union" was called - Visiting a Fairy Tale. I especially liked the dining room and the peacefully sitting Zoldat at the table. Nobody takes sugar and butter from the young, there are no pieces of boiled bacon with wool instead of meat. Soldats in a new ironed uniform, A sergeant with a button accordion in Lenin's room simply made me happy, with such an idiotic expression the heroes of the poster "do not grab the bare wire" were usually depicted. You can't see the dushars running into the dining room for fried potatoes for the grandfathers, you can't see the headquarters officers with the belly, and you can't see anything real at all. Our army was rotten, like the entire state of the USSR, a lot of idlers and opportunists went into it, for a good salary, for opportunities to get housing on time, to go to the GSVG or YUGV, but there was not a long queue "beyond the river". Not shown are cadre units with a bunch of idle officers who receive allowances, stars and, at the same time, did not see the soldiers and came to the headquarters to work, and not to serve. They found something to remember, youth - it is certainly a good thing, but too much rubbish was thrown around.
