The legendary gunsmith Mikhail Kalashnikov addressed the Russians with New Year's greetings

The legendary gunsmith Mikhail Kalashnikov addressed the Russians with New Year's greetings, "Russia has taken the next, 14 billionth bar in arms exports. Thus, we once again proved to the world that our weapon - reliable and demanded in the foreign market. That is what I will think about when I raise a New Year's glass. And also about the fact that the living thread of traditions and relations with history. That youth education should be based on examples of courage and self-sacrifice of heroes, ”the Kalashnikov statement reads, the text of which entered Interfax on Thursday.

The appeal notes that the 70 anniversary of the Great Victory is not far off. “And we should celebrate this wonderful holiday nicely and with dignity, without leaving the slightest chance to the detractors of our Victory. So, for example, this is done in the framework of the International Relay of Memory and Thanks to“ The Land of the Feat - Hero's Homeland, ”Kalashnikov says.

"I admit, I dream together with the participants and organizers of this patriotic project, implemented on a voluntary basis by the Institute of Social Memory of the Academy of Military Sciences, to visit Berlin in 2015, touch the walls of the Reichstag, to which I, a tankman sergeant, didn’t I had a chance to reach the victorious 45. God willing, I will fulfill my dream, "says Kalashnikov.

"And I also want the Almighty to give strength, tolerance and strength of spirit to all the people, multiply the faith in Great Russia. I am convinced that this will be so, because it’s not by chance that the New Year is celebrated with the bright holiday of the Nativity of Christ, bringing joy to human soul and love of neighbors, "- said in the Kalashnikov appeal.

      Igorek, if I take him for a walk in Berlin, where real life is, and not a "showcase", then he certainly won't be enough, but on the contrary, he will add pride for our country.

      Now they are paying with the crisis at the expense of this "showcase". industry and agriculture did not develop, but they made a free life for themselves with printed candy wrappers. Now the bubble has burst.
      But at the same time let there be so many Muslims in Germany.

      "Russia has taken another, 14 billion bar in the export of arms." Minus as much as you like, but this is a huckster's toast! I don’t believe that Kalashnikov began his speech with bargaining, because the point is not how many weapons we sold, but how our army is armed. And Kalashnikov - health and many years!

        I will not pass, but I do not agree to the account of trading. If you read carefully, the next sentence says "Thus, we once again proved to the world that our weapon is reliable."

    "I also want The Most High gave strength, tolerance and strength of spirit to all the people, increased faith in Great Russia"

    Once again, my thesis proves that all Great People are believers. Because you can’t deceive the soul. The soul knows Who gives talent.
    May God give you good health, Grandfather Misha !!!

    By the way, I would have watched the with great pleasure about his life path, but unfortunately there are none, but it’s a pity the spielberg should be corrected !!)))).
    By the way, I was in Izhevsk at the Kalashnikov Museum, very informative, and you can cheat on an excellent shooting gallery with almost all weapons (you should have your main passport with you).
