Every year, on October 1, the servicemen of the Ground Forces celebrate their professional holiday. This type of armed forces in our country is the most numerous and solves the widest range of tasks.

In fact, it was the Ground Forces that played a key role in protecting the sovereignty and interests of our country in almost all conflicts in which Russia participated.

It is worth noting that the date of the celebration of the Day of the Ground Forces in our country was not chosen by chance. It was on October 1 (Old Style 11) 1550 that Tsar Ivan the Terrible issued a decree on the formation of archery regiments and guard service, which became the basis for the Russian ground forces.

At the same time, the regular army appeared in our country almost 200 years later, after the Northern War during the reign of Peter I.
Since that moment, the Ground Forces, as well as their weapons, have been continuously developed.

Today they include: motorized rifle, tank, missile troops and artillery, air defense troops, as well as special troops. As of 2021, their number was 280 thousand people.

It is worth noting that the Russian Ground Forces are regularly replenished with the latest weapons. Along with tanks, howitzers and MLRS, our army is actively using unmanned aerial vehicles and even "smart" robotic platforms, which at the beginning of the XNUMXs could only be seen in science fiction films.

This year, a serious threat loomed over our country. The collective West, ignoring the proposals of our president on collective security, has set a course for the destruction of Russia. At the same time, the United States and its partners are not yet entering into direct confrontation, but prefer to use Ukraine to weaken our country, literally pumping its army with various weapons.

It is also important that right now our military is fighting not only for the sovereignty of Russia, but also for the Russian population living on the territory of Ukraine, to whom the Kyiv authorities have decided to arrange a real genocide.

There is no doubt that the Russian army will once again win, and the Ground Forces will play a key role in this confrontation, as in many conflicts.

      this is a bastard that was propagated on the outskirts, worse than the Nazis.

      I hope everything ends bistro and with minimal casualties from both sides, including civilians and children.
      And those who remained alive, to re-educate somewhere in a colony on Vorkuta approximately

        It's nice to hear such wishes from an adequate Bulgarian. And before that he was very talkative, but with Western bells and whistles.

          Happy Russian Land Forces Day to everyone involved!
          There is no Victory on the battlefields without you and your combat work!
          All of you health, success, good luck and happiness in your personal life! And of course Victory!

      The ground forces are a branch of the armed forces; not a branch of the armed forces! Therefore, I ask you not to confuse the "fork with the bottle"! wink

    Against the backdrop of today's news about the NWO, any holidays are somehow inappropriate. Although the landlord himself

    What is there to celebrate against the backdrop of such failures? It would be nice in general for the army to stop celebrating something there before victory. They (military functionaries, not soldiers of course) now have no right to do anything except day and night to try to fix the situation that they themselves created.
