23 June Ryazan Higher Airborne Command School (RVVDKU) named Army General VF Margelova held solemn events dedicated to the 132 graduation of young officers. Diplomas of higher military educational institutions and the military rank of “lieutenant” received about 350 graduates of RVVDKU, including 50 military personnel of the armed forces of foreign countries. For the first time among graduates are 14 female lieutenants who studied the specialty “Application of paratroop support units”.
According to the established tradition, senior cadets held demonstration classes on the school grounds, demonstrating their skills weapons and techniques of army hand-to-hand combat.
After shooting various events of this kind, I receive a lot of emails asking me to share photos. As you know, I am never greedy, especially when it comes to such celebrations. I selected about 230 photos with graduates in advance and uploaded them to Yandex Photos. Photos in original size and without processing. I hope everything will figure out how to download the originals.
