March 19 - Day of the Submariner in Russia


Every year on March 19, the Russian Federation celebrates the Day of the Submariner - a professional holiday of servicemen, veterans and civilian personnel of the underwater fleet Russian Navy.

On this day, more than a century ago, in 1906, the Russian emperor Nicholas II issued a decree according to which a new class of warships appeared in the country's naval forces. They were submarines. By that time, Russia already had four types of submarines - "Kasatka", "Sturgeon", "Catfish" and "Trout". A few weeks after the imperial decree, a scuba diving training squad was organized in Libau.

Since then, in the Russian Empire on March 6 (and according to our new style - on the 19th), the Navy began to celebrate the Day of the Submariner.

After the October Revolution, many things in the country were canceled, including this holiday. And they returned it after the collapse of the USSR, in 1996, by order of the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, who at that time was Admiral N.F. Gromov.

On this day, solemn meetings, concerts and other festive events in honor of the submariners are usually organized. The Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy personally sends his congratulations to the military, civilian personnel and veterans of the submarine fleet.

The editorial board of Voenniy Obozreniye congratulates the submariners on their professional holiday! We express to you, dear servicemen, veterans, workers and employees of the submarine fleet of the Russian Navy, our gratitude for your hard military work and contribution to the defense capability of our country.

Good health, happiness and prosperity to you!

          Happy Holidays to all submariners! All the best and every success!

          I'll tell you a story about foreign submariners. I hope no one will be offended by me for her. We are celebrating on March 8, 1980 in one of the restaurants in Vladivostok. Our table is all rank by rank: two cavalier sailors and two ladies. The next table is some four small swarthy foreigners who do not speak Russian. We drank one, two, three. The music thunders, merrily, everyone perked up, the adjacent tables began to get acquainted. The neighbors are trying to explain something. One for some reason always crawls under his table and sticks out his hand. It turned out - Indonesian submariners, and he - from under the table - represented a periscope!

      As a Tankman, I know perfectly well how not to just "revive" the hardware. But I can't even imagine how you managed to "revive" the submarine ... in a hrendelpupelny stump - it's a whole city that moves in three-dimensional space.
      Huge HORSE to you !!
      Today I will cross the alcohol into an awl and sod a stoparik for you.

      In the hospital, fate brought together the oil-pop, wow, and we had a festival with him ... Mazut, it is MAZUT at all latitudes !!!
      Deep respect to Captain 1st Rank Alexander Sergeevich Bogachev, commander of TK-20. In the standings, which is a world record of 58 launches of ballistic missiles.
      Military Greetings.
      In general, for you, for those who are in slippers !!!
      I wish you health and good luck !!!

    What has passed will no longer be
    Living on land is more beneficial.
    But more and more often people dream
    With whom he served and lived in the "iron".

    In general, ordinary people
    They will say - there is smarter and cooler
    Who was not there - let him not judge
    Personally, I have not seen better!

    Happy Holidays again !!!

    Congratulations to all submariners and shipbuilders who create submarines for them from the St. Petersburg Admiralty shipyards and Sevmash! In 1981, the code on the lead nuclear submarine 941 of the project and I was initiated into submariners by the traditional drinking of sea water from the ceiling during the sea trials of the nuclear submarine. So I'm a bit submariner.

    And for those who spent years on submarines of the BS in the oceans and seas - deep respect and respect!

    The future of our Navy lies only in the submarine fleet - everything else will be secondary, at least until 2050. Therefore, we wish our submariners to take the leadership of all the Navy into our own hands.

    Friends, Happy Submariner's Day! Of course, the generally accepted Navy Day in July is generally accepted, but submariners deserve an extra day, which can be marked with an "awl".

    (*) And this is a monument to the first Russian submarine - the great-grandmother of the current nuclear submarines. Stands in the Leningrad region, in the city of Sestroretsk.
