October 1 - Ground Forces Day

In accordance with the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation No. 549 dated 31 of May 2006, “On the establishment of professional holidays and commemorative days in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation”, the Day of the Ground Forces of Russia is celebrated annually on October 1. Ground troops - this is perhaps the basis of the army, its backbone. At all times, it was they who played the decisive role in winning victories over enemies.

History The Ground Forces as a separate type of troops are rooted in the middle of the 16 century. 1 October 1550 of the year Tsar Ivan the Terrible issued a Decree “On the Facility of Thousands of Service People Chosen in Moscow and Surrounding Counties,” essentially laying the foundations of the first army with signs of a modern regular army.

As their name implies, the Ground Forces are intended mainly for conducting combat operations on land.
The modern combat capabilities of the Ground Forces of the Russian Federation allow them to effectively interact with other branches of the Armed Forces. Their task is to conduct an offensive with the aim of destroying the enemy troops and seizing the territory occupied by them, delivering fire strikes at a greater depth of its defense, repelling the invasions and large airborne assault forces of the enemy, securely holding the occupied territories, areas and lines.

The structure of the Ground Forces of the Russian Federation includes:
• Motorized rifle troops;
<br>• Tank troops;
• Rocket troops and artillery;
• Air Defense Forces of the Ground Forces;
• Special forces;
• Signal Corps.

The ground forces of Russia are located in the territory of four military districts: the Central Military District; Southern Military District; Western Military District and Eastern Military District.

        One night he sat in the same place by the fire, a can of porridge exploded, the fire was scattered, and when they figured out that this was not shelling, they were neighing for a long time shaking off the porridge.

          And make a "hole" nana in a jar, a simple hole with a simple key from zinc ...
          Just kidding

          And what kind of porridge was it, Dmitry?
          Go up the fraction / 16 with meat? Very good if she ...

            Waiting for the commander, basking in the ruins of the headquarters.
            We see someone called, he forgot about the porridge.
            The bonfire was small and a buried can of buckwheat porridge worked effectively.
            The officers were fired on, so they "crawled" about 20 meters.
            The truth is quickly sorted out.

    And from a remote perspective,
    It’s as if not in the right
    Suddenly divisional
    Good mother shell.

    And he will go, he will go to glory,
    Like from a hearth, blow hot
    With a howl, with a screeching lisp
    Clear the way for the infantry

    Beat, break and burn into the surroundings.
    A little village? - The village.
    Home is like home. Dugout - dugout.
    You are lying, you will not sit back - you will give it back!

    And there was still someone there
    Powdered by sand?
    Wait, the infantry gets up,
    Let me get you with a bayonet.
    Happy holiday infantry ... Here is a little Tvardovsky quoted ... The poem "Vasily Tyorkin" is a hymn to the Russian infantryman, the miracle hero of Suvorov ... I can't resist, I'll insert another fragment ...

    A year struck, the turn came
    Today we are responsible
    For Russia, for the people
    And for everything in the world.

    From Ivan to Thomas,
    Dead eh, alive
    All of us together are us
    That people, Russia.

    There is one thing in people,
    It is given to them or not given.
    When in a fever scribbling a machine gun
    One lies, the other runs forward.
    And so in everything, everywhere, and always,
    When trouble falls on your shoulders
    When life takes you by the throat
    One lies, the other runs forward.
    Well, what to do, apparently, it is so established.
    Let's pour some wine into glasses
    I raise this toast
    For those who rose to their full height.
