May 7 - Day of the creation of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation

120

The Russian Armed Forces are in constant readiness to protect the country, state and people from aggressive encroachments. The date of their occurrence is considered an official holiday and is celebrated every year on May 7.


On this day in 1992, an order of the President of the Russian Federation was issued, which contains the organizational basis for the creation of the Ministry of Defense and the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. This day is considered a professional holiday for Russian servicemen and all those associated with military service and military affairs.

Of course, история The Russian Armed Forces are much longer than three decades old. After all, they appeared many centuries ago and developed together with the Russian state. The most important historical milestones of our Motherland are inextricably linked with the Armed Forces. In the most difficult periods, the soldiers even defended the very right to existence of our country. The Battle of the Ice, the Battle of Kulikovo, and the Battle of Poltava are inscribed in gold letters in Russian history. We remember the price that our army and people paid for the victory over fascism in the Great Patriotic War.



On this day, we remember all the Russian soldiers who fell in battles and congratulate the military, active and retired, on the holiday. After all, serving in Russia is an honorable cause, thanks to which peace is preserved in our homes.

The editorial board of Voennoye Obozreniye congratulates everyone whose life is connected with the Armed Forces of Russia. She wishes him good health, success in his service and good spirits.

Today, the RF Armed Forces are the stronghold of the country's independence, the inviolability of its territorial integrity, the cornerstone of security.

        It is good that historians and archaeologists did not find the exact date of "delivery to the customer" of the Prophetic Oleg's shield - there would have been another holiday. symbols are of course important (May 7) but not so much.

          I believe that Yeltsin and his anti-Soviet comrades-in-arms came up with this new-made holiday in order to divert the attention of Russians from the popularly celebrated February 23. I don't know, maybe someday this little-known and little-recognized holiday will replace February 23 ... what

            The analogy of "wise" Ukrainian actions led to the return of Crimea and the emergence of the LPNR.
            Thanks to such commentators painted in yellow (there is a blue stripe at the top and there will be a Ukrainian symbol), in Russia they propose to ban public identification of the role of the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany in World War II.
            Such a bill was submitted to the State Duma in pursuance of the instructions of the head of state. ... In defense of memory.

        February 23 is Defender of the Fatherland Day, and May 7 is the Day of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. It turns out that the first holiday for those who served, serves, will serve, and on May 7, it is purely professional.

        You need to carefully re-read the history of the white movement. She had nothing to do with Kutuzov's army at all.
        And the army of the Russian Empire certainly did not celebrate anything on May 7. This "holiday" is exclusively Yeltsin's remake.

          In vain you mix concepts. On the 23rd - a holiday of defenders of the fatherland, veterans, officers, sergeants and reserve soldiers, retirees of the military and other law enforcement agencies, the active military, and even those citizens who had nothing to do with the army, but in which case they will defend their home with weapons. And the day of the RF Armed Forces is a purely professional holiday of the active Armed Forces.
          Many are hurt by the loss of the Russian Empire, from the loss of the USSR, but now our country is officially the Russian Federation, and its army is officially the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. The essence has not changed, but with the creation of a new constitutional system of the country, new formations appear and the names of its services, and their holidays))

            It's clear. But people have the same attitude to the new holidays as to the new system. request
            And taking into account the fact that for the majority the system is clearly not popular, then the attitude is corresponding.

                      Yes, I don’t read any political system better or worse, it exists and nothing can be done about it. I am talking about the fact that at the moment of the beginning of each system there is turmoil and blood, then flourishing - a golden time, then sunset and turmoil, then a new system ... The world develops in a spiral. It is possible that after the imminent decline of capitalism, there will be a revolution, blood and turmoil and the Russian Empire will revive again, but at the moment of its formation, there will be dissatisfied people, there will be victims, then flourishing, then sunset ...

                        It is also possible (if indeed a spiral) that the Russian Federation will disintegrate into specific principalities (I cannot imagine what is needed for this, but the United States is trying to do it), then again the Russian kingdom, then the Russian Empire, etc.

          I suppose the Holiday should be for military personnel only, professional. Those who have served - of course, can also celebrate as partakers. As for the date of February 23, at least look at the wiki (not the authority, of course, especially from "The first attempts to substantiate the date of February 23"), it was on this day that the anniversary of the Workers 'and Peasants' Red Army was celebrated, i.e. since 1918 it is the day of the Army - Red, Soviet, and then the Navy. But as part of the "democratization" of the EBN and the beginning of the renunciation of everything Soviet, it was renamed the Defender of the Fatherland Day. And, as you write:
          even those citizens who had nothing to do with the army, but in which case they will defend their home with weapons.
          - the majority of "those citizens who had nothing to do with the army" relate this date only as an antipode or alternative to International Women's Day, March 8. And with weapons in hand, it is not yet known what they will be - to defend or vice versa.

            Well ... I agree on something. But I considered the situation when a hypothetical enemy entered my city (village). And then there is a choice: you fight (die in battle, win) or raise your paws and with tears watch how your wife and eldest daughter are being raped in turn. Most of those who are not involved will still choose the first option. On the 23rd it is also their holiday.

Yes, our army appeared in modern times. Why is this so maddening? That there are no shovels? This is how we honor these traditions. Everything left its mark. Tradition is what it was before the USSR

      That's for sure. Nothing was created, they took everything ready and simply renamed. Moreover, they destroyed the power created by the people, but they were smart enough not to delete on February 23rd. But some, apparently, who have lost their memory or who studied strictly according to the exam, are negative.

            Of course weaker. Multiple. If you take into account the amendment to the development of technology The army is also an extension of the country's economy. And the economies of the USSR and Russia are like heaven and earth.

              This is where you are wrong.
              If we take them into account, it has become much stronger. But I understand what you want to say. Yes, I agree, but it is necessary to take into account the loss of territories and the mood in those countries that split off. Maybe if we had kept them in our ranks, such a huge 5th column would not have been a knife in the back, but a shot at it from a howitzer?

          I teach my own what is needed. But the children have a strong dissonance from these "pseudo-celebrations." If earlier everyone celebrated May Day - the Day of Solidarity of All Workers, and all the working people really were in solidarity, celebrated together, went to the parade, then everyone went to the subbotnik. What is "Spring and Labor Day" now? Spring is understandable. But labor? What kind of work? If it's a weekend ... Hard workers work 2-3 jobs anyway, so that mortgages, loans, tutors can be paid, and millionaires also work, but in their own way ...
          So what do the holidays mean now? You can't deceive children, and you don't really want to tell the truth ...

        I even find it difficult to find historical analogues for them - there were no such characters in the history of Russia before them.
        With regard to "compensate and heal", I am sure that Russia will be able to overcome this on a historical scale, as it previously overcame the Batyevo conflagration, the Troubles, the Brest Peace and the devastation of the Civil War.
        But for this it is necessary to give an adequate assessment of these characters and their legacy. And their legacy is nothing. They have not created anything. Everything new that has appeared has arisen either in spite of, or on the Soviet basis. And because, whatever they "twisted" there, they are historical "nobody".

            Those were just puppets who were put in place by outside forces to play a role in the already existing chaos.
            But so that, like this, two horsemen rushed to sell and gnaw on a still strong and well-governed country, which did not endure either hunger, or military defeat, or popular revolts, but had enormous forces, influence in the world, a powerful economy and could well stand further - there was no such thing.

              It was...
              In 1917, there were so many "horsemen" who decided to "snatch a piece" from the Motherland (after all, all of them, even Poles and Finns, were born in the Russian Empire).
              Immediately on the situation on the fronts of the Second Patriotic War -
              The front was stable - the Germans sat in the trenches and did not advance anywhere.
              Bread rose in price and disappeared from the shelves due to speculators (though it looks like something ...).
              There were no riots. (you can recall the uprising in Central Asia in 1916 ...)
              But in the USSR there were also events in Osh on June 4, 1990, events in Stepanakert on September 18-30, 1988 ...

    On this day we remember

    We remember. As for half a year, instructions and orders from the CIS Defense Ministry (Shaposhnikov) and the RF Defense Ministry (Grachev) poured in simultaneously, and both, after all, are OUR Minister of Defense!
    At the same time, military equipment that was at military repair factories in all kinds of Ukraine and the Baltics got stuck, and the unit commanders were floundering with this question: what to do when the Grad installation or a diesel power plant is listed, sent according to the order of the Ministry of Defense to the indicated numbered plant and return it no one is going - new rulers banned?
    Immediate compromise of ZAS keys, including general staff warning networks. Within one day I had to fly to Leningrad (that city was still called that way) so that our association would not fly over and would not be left without notification of the possible start of a nuclear or other war! With a pistol in his coat pocket, which the crew of the scheduled plane did not want to take from me for the duration of the flight. And then - in the LIAZ regular bus, packed with people, because the general considered it unheard of impudence to give the captain a car with key documents and weapons!
    But relief to the people came out: against the background of a monthly rise in price of grub and delays in monetary allowances - stalls with cigarettes and Royal alcohol grew like mushrooms within walking distance - after Gorbachev it was cool! At least a drink and a smoke, since there is nothing else!
    And now, in May, finally, clarity - from Mr. Grachev a telegram: "We do not need impostors - I will be the commander!" Shaposhnikov to the garden! This moment is the date!
    Yeah, of course ... And then two ministries for a rapidly crumbling defense is too much, and the marshal himself (praise him) later admitted that his office was meaningless and stopped her torment.
    Yes, in parallel to all this, the withdrawal of troops into the open field is in full swing, the reduction of units and formations, echelons with military equipment sent from abroad to nowhere, without a recipient, are hanging around the country, the units, by the way, have already been safely dispersed, that is, the old masters of this the property is gone, and the new addressee, to whom it is, is gone.
    Well, in general, if without the pathos and entanglement of the Victory Day, or at least the Radio Day, this is how the event itself looked on the ground, which, like a "holiday", is one of the ridiculous and unaccustomed ones, invented by the new authorities of Russia

      The first defense minister of the Russian Federation was Yeltsin himself, and then he appointed Grachev. Before that, Grachev was Shaposhnikov's first deputy as the Commander-in-Chief of the Joint Armed Forces of the CIS, but at the same time he enjoyed great influence as a person close to Yeltsin.

    Well, I did not understand anything. What is May 7? And what to celebrate on February 23?

      February 23, too, will soon be canceled. De-Sovietization. And May 7 will be made the main one. In what way is Russia worse than other republics? The divorce continues. laughing And after 10 years we learn that the Russian Federation, together with other republics, won the Great Patriotic War. laughing

    469 years ago, on October 1, 1550, Ivan the Terrible laid the foundations for the Russian regular army. On this day, he issued a Sentence (Decree) "On the placement in Moscow and surrounding districts of a selected thousand of service people"

    So it is historically correct to celebrate this particular day as the day of the creation of the Russian army.

    February 23 is the day of the creation of our Army, the very legendary and invincible. The one who raised the red banner over the Reichstag!
    Here is our holiday and the holiday of the Army!
    And this "holiday" was created by a drunken Yeltsin who buried the united Armed Forces of the USSR.
    And what are the consequences? A whole regiment of the latest Tu-160 missile carriers remained on the territory of the new Ukraine. Most are cut. The Black Sea Fleet remained on its territory, which had to be divided.
    I'm not even talking about the consequences and how it ended - NATO bases on former Soviet soil.
    After all, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation were not created from scratch, they then remained the largest fragment of the defeated Armed Forces of the USSR.
    But far from being the most prepared. Of the 16 military districts of the USSR Armed Forces (+ groupings in Eastern Europe), only half of this remained on the territory of the Russian Federation.
    And then, by order of Yeltsin, our advanced units were withdrawn from Germany. They were taken out into the open field and soon pulled apart.

      This applies to general forces. The lion's share of the strategic nuclear forces, the Pacific and Northern fleets were on the territory of the Russian Federation.

    I look at the photo and think who made them wear a field uniform + boots + a dress belt with a dagger + peaked caps + chevrons for everyday wear with a red piping (land), and comrade Major has field green?

      By the way, yes, for some reason it always causes a certain dissonance in me, when on May 9, all divisions have their own form, all are different. And there is a field, and a front door and some kind of wild sweep. Well, what for you need to walk across the area in camouflage and armored vehicles. It would be much more natural to wear a full dress uniform in its classic form at the parade.

    It is good that historians and archaeologists did not find the exact date of "delivery to the customer" of the Prophetic Oleg's shield - there would have been another holiday. symbols are of course important (May 7) but not so much.

    But they found that "someone" once defeated the Pechenegs .... lol hi

    Oh, that is, you say that now the RF Armed Forces are an analogue (only larger) of the Ukrainian army, which uses the Soviet legacy?

    [quote = Obliterator] [quote = Doccor18] The only problem is that people do not know and do not understand the meaning of these newly invented festivities. That's what May Day, Victory Day, on November 7, every kid knew before ... [/ quote]
    [quote] Well, the state no longer has such a propaganda machine. [/ quote] Here you are very wrong - the current "machine" will be more powerful.
    [quote] However, without her, May Day with the date of the October coup quickly "blown away" for the people. [/ quote] Here you are even more wrong - apparently judge by yourself .... lol

    The first Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation was Yeltsin himself, and then he appointed Grachev

    Was not.
    He put on the commander-in-chief, but he was not exactly the minister of defense. Here's a prime minister or whatever ... there was no - Gaidar was the Deputy of the Council of Ministers, and did not rise above that. And the head of the government like Yeltsin, so it was believed. There was also Rutskoy and Khasbulatov, who were also active and noticeable figures at that time.
    And how it was - I wrote for sure, there were two defense ministers at the same time, and some guidelines were published, also at the same time. Only Shaposhnikov's orders also concerned the ministries of defense of the newly created states - and they were put with a device ...
    This mess existed for about six months, during which they also actively expelled from the army of the State Emergency Committee and sympathizers who managed to register or publicly express themselves.
    In Chechnya, they already began to try to rob the OTC (training division), a full-fledged civil war broke out in Tajikistan, broke out in Transnistria, South Ossetia and Karabakh.

    When Shoigu was in charge of the medical unit, there was also a whistle with the official date of the formation of this structure (both from the beginning of the formation of the MVVO and from the formation of the rescue corps, etc.), and all because on the date of foundation, budget money was knocked out of the treasury. The ears of this financial scheme are visible with the naked eye and from the "May 7 holiday" ... Ay, yes Shoigu, ah yes, son of Kuzhuget laughing
