Information: Defender of the Fatherland Day is a holiday that is officially celebrated in the Russian Federation, Belarus, the Transnistrian Republic and South Ossetia. It was installed in Soviet Russia in 1922 as Red Army Day and Fleet. From 1949 to 1993 it was celebrated as "Day of the Soviet Army and Navy." Historical justification of the holiday: in connection with the advance of the German-Austrian forces on February 23, 1918, the SNK's appeal of February 21, “The Socialist Fatherland in Danger,” as well as “The Appeal of the Military Commander-in-Chief” N. Krylenko, which ended with the words: “... All to arms. All to the defense of the revolution. The total mobilization for digging trenches and expulsion of trench detachments is entrusted to the councils with the appointment of responsible commissars with unlimited powers for each detachment. This order is sent as an instruction to all councils in all cities. ” February 25, in view of the continuing German offensive and the threat to Petrograd that arose, recruiting stations opened and a real attempt was made to start a mass enrollment in the Red Army. Nowadays, “23 February” is often celebrated as “the day of all men”, as a counterbalance - “women's day”.
Is there something to celebrate ?!
Currently, our armed forces are going through hard times, as the whole country. Even an intelligible military doctrine was not adopted - which would answer the question, who is the enemy? From whom the army will have to defend their homeland?
But in the soul, every Rus knows the answer to these questions, everything is simply Russia and everyone who attempts upon it is Enemies. And our army must be ready to confront any enemy: from the high-tech divisions of NATO, armored armadas of China to gangs of Islamic radicals, or separatists.
Therefore, our army will need to be recreated almost from scratch, adopting all the best that was in the USSR, rejecting its shortcomings. Create a new military culture in Russia, when the military will become a political force protecting the people not only from external enemies, but also internal ones.
