Day of Heroes of the Fatherland of Russia

The Day of Heroes of the Fatherland of Russia is the most important memorable date for our country. It is dedicated to those who bravely and selflessly defended and are defending our Motherland, often at the cost of their own lives.

The above-mentioned holiday in the Russian Federation is celebrated annually on December 9. It was enshrined at the legislative level on February 28, 2007.



It so happened that throughout stories Russia is forced to defend its right to exist in numerous military conflicts, often fighting an entire coalition of enemies. It is at such moments that our country learns about real heroes - ordinary people with an unbreakable spirit and the will to win.

The Northern Military District in Ukraine was no exception, where Russian soldiers showed themselves already in the first days of the confrontation with the troops of the Kyiv regime, behind whom stands the entire collective West with all the power of its weapons.

For example, the Navigator of the 23rd Fighter Aviation Regiment, Major Viktor Dudin, who on the very first day of a special military operation, February 24, 2022, destroyed an enemy fighter in an air battle.

Just two days later, Dudin participated in a complex maneuver to destroy an enemy air defense system, entering the radar field of the complex at an extremely low altitude of 400 meters and destroying the installation immediately after it worked and revealed itself.

But that's not all. On February 28, the Navigator of the 23rd Fighter Aviation Regiment of the Russian Aerospace Forces destroyed a Ukrainian Su-27, and a day later, another one.

As a result, Viktor Dudin became the first pilot awarded the title of Hero of Russia during the Northern Military District.

Undoubtedly, most of our fellow citizens have heard the story about the crew tank “Alyosha”, which in June of this year destroyed as many as eight enemy armored vehicles in an unequal battle. All crew members of the legendary T-80, the commander of the 2nd tank company, senior lieutenant Rasim Baksikov, lieutenant Alexander Levakov and tank gunner-operator Alexei Neustroyev were nominated for the highest award, Hero of Russia.

It is worth emphasizing that the above was only a small part of the heroic deeds that our compatriots performed during the SVO in Ukraine. Today you could write a whole book about Russian special operation heroes.

But we should not forget about the heroes of other conflicts and wars, who, like active servicemen of the Russian Armed Forces, at one time selflessly and uncompromisingly fought against those who wanted to destroy our Motherland.

The country must know and remember its Heroes! And we will certainly not forget about them.

    The Day of Heroes of the Fatherland of Russia is the most important memorable date for our country. It is dedicated to those who bravely and selflessly defended and is defending our Motherland, often at the cost of his own life.

    This is a significant event. There is no need to hide the Heroes of Russia, we need to talk about them loudly and openly. And make sure that the life of the Heroes after their exploits is worthy. Not to mention the fact that various kinds of streets with the names of unknown and undeserved people should bear the names of real Heroes of Russia.

      Mr. (not Mr.) troll! So you, with your rich imagination, believe that under this definition:
      It is dedicated to those who bravely and selflessly defended and is defending our Motherland, often at the cost of his own life.

      Are Mr. Kiriyenko or some other Rotenberg like?
      I don't think so, and I can tell you why...
      So you can go as far as awarding the title of Hero of Russia to Vlasov or some Mannerheim...

      Maybe, for starters, treat their wives humanely?

        Everyone must be treated humanely, not just the wives of Heroes. This has never even occurred to our compatriots. But they are ready to crawl on their knees in front of the rich

        And the State is not a person. It cannot be humane to anyone. But Heroes have monthly payments of 60 thousand rubles. So they and their wives will share.... Families also have benefits. You can find out everything on the Internet.

    In 1941, the title of Hero of the Soviet Union was awarded to fighter aviation pilots for shooting down ten enemy aircraft. Since 1943, the number of aircraft shot down has increased to fifteen.

    Well, it’s some kind of Great Patriotic War, and here is the SVO! You need to understand!

    Putin is my hero!

    Today you could write a whole book about Russian special operation heroes.

    Thanks to the heroes of Russia for their feat of arms. It is not only possible, but also necessary to write books, and not only books, but also films and TV series.

      but also to make films and TV series.


      Well, for example, an adventurous comedy with Anatoly Serdyukov, a crime thriller “Once Upon a Time in Rostec” with Chemezov, the series “Octopus” with Vladimir Ustinov (remember this one?), video courses on the development of a family business with Yuri Borisov.
      All Heroes of Russia, if anyone doesn’t know

        There were quite a few such “heroes” during perestroika, and they are still muddying the waters...

        As of September 9, 2023, the title of Hero of Russia was awarded to: 210 servicemen of the Russian Armed Forces, 114 of them posthumously. I mean them.

          Are you talking about the Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, Hero of Russia Patrushev? Also not a serviceman of the Russian Armed Forces, for example

    The enemies of the USSR devalued the value of state awards.

      Depreciated is an understatement. Previously, everyone greeted the Hero of the Soviet Union on the street.

    The country must know and remember its Heroes and provide for life all the vital needs of its Heroes - pension, housing, taxes, treatment, etc., etc.

    Afffftor, actually, navigators in a two-seat fighter perform slightly different tasks. And if you reward, then it is logical to reward the entire crew. And I would like to understand what type of aircraft we are talking about? In WW1, Austrian journalists riveted fakes about heroism in batches
