December 9 - Day of the Heroes of the Fatherland

64
The Day of the Heroes of the Fatherland was established on February 28 2007 of the year in connection with the introduction of amendments to Article 1-1 of the Federal Law “On Days of Military Glory and Memorable Dates of Russia”.


Today, on the Day of the Heroes of the Fatherland, Russia honors all its sons, at various times awarded its highest military awards - the Knights of the Order of St. George, the Heroes of the Soviet Union, the full Knights of the Order of Glory and Heroes of the Russian Federation.

Today’s holiday is a relatively new memorable date, which, however, has nearly two hundred and fifty years history. The establishment of this memorable day is intended to restore historical continuity: before 1917, on this day in Russia, the feast of St. George's Holders was celebrated.

November 26 (December 9 new style) 1769, the highest order of Empress Catherine the Great, established the highest military order of the Russian Empire - the Order of St. George the Victorious, who for more than a century and a half was awarded Russian soldiers who showed valor, bravery and courage in battle. Since then, a good tradition has developed in Russia - to celebrate the Feast of the St. George Cavaliers on this day, honoring all the Order gentlemen - from the great celebrated commanders Alexander Suvorov, Grigory Potemkin, Mikhail Kutuzov to ordinary soldiers, sailors and Cossacks who were awarded this highest award.

The status of the highest military award in Russia was returned to the Order of St. George 13 years ago, according to Decree of the President of the Russian Federation No. 1463 of August 8 of 2000 of the Year “On Approval of the Statute of the Order of St. George, the Statute of Honor - St. George’s Cross”.

The title of Hero of the Soviet Union was established in 1934 year. For 57 years, the 12265 Man has been awarded the Star of the Hero by the Ministry of Defense.

In 1943, the Order of Glory of three degrees was established to award soldiers and sergeants who showed heroism in battles with the enemy. The award ceremony was held until the summer of 1945. During this time, 2640 man became his full gentlemen.

The title of Hero of the Russian Federation was established in 1992, for 21 the year 579 military men were awarded it.

        Unfortunately, we don’t know the names of many, many did not receive well-deserved awards, but everyone knows the names of these KHEROEVs. I just can’t understand what feats they accomplished in their life.

          Serdyukovsky chief of staff actually led the military reform, for which apparently he got a hero. The most secret Hero of Russia.

            Hm. And no one thought that if the assistant to the chief military reformer - the chief of the General Staff of the Russian Federation was awarded a star of the hero with a secret decree, then probably he - the chief military reformer of the Minister of Defense Serdyukov was not circumvented by this award, the same secret decree.
            He did his job, at the direction of the Supreme Commander. As Putin said, "Shoigu only needs to polish the completed military reform."
            Br-rr It is already disgusting, from the mere thought that such heroes have awards, like the real Heroes of the USSR and Russia.

          Have you ever seen a big fire near? Only really close so that even behind the visor the muzzle cracked? Then you will have an idea what it is to step into the fire when the whole body is yelling, that you need to run from there and away. From the side, it may seem that putting out fires is simple - water yourself and that’s all, but in reality it’s a difficult and extremely dangerous job.

      Yes, no one replaced the Hero with the St. George Cross, each, as they say in their place, the St. George Cross (4 degrees) was introduced instead of the Order of Glory, they even have the same order ribbon. In Soviet times, the full holder of the Order of Glory was equated with the Hero of the Soviet Union!

    The memory of the first Hero in the modern history of Russia was honored in the Museum of the Great Patriotic War on Poklonnaya Hill. The head of Ingushetia, Yunus-bek Yevkurov, transferred there the bust of Sulambek Oskanov for permanent storage.
    Fighter pilot Sulambek Oskanov, who was originally from the Ingush Republic, was awarded the title of Hero of Russia posthumously back in 1992. At the cost of his life, he saved the inhabitants of a small village in the Lipetsk region.
    On that day, Oskanov performed a training flight in difficult weather conditions. At some point, the equipment failed. There was a village right along the course. Oskanov made the only decision - to take the fighter to the side. The pilot no longer had time to eject.

      I don’t know, for the first time I heard that someone was afraid or ashamed to wear Soviet orders and medals. In addition, they had clearly expressed symbolism: it was clear right away that this was for courage, and this was for labor valor; it was a military order, and this labor banner. Now you can’t make out the crosses right away ...

    leveling the semantic load of awards is one of the ways to destroy the country. I recalled the dispute between the hero of the USSR and the hero of the Russian Federation (which the hero received for the storming of the White House). I also remembered the hero of Russia who received the hero for saving a flock of sheep from a fire

      How disgusting it is that nowadays the Stars of Heroes of Russia are worn by all kinds of Kadyrov-Yamadayevs, those who killed the Russians and boasted about it: "I killed the first Russian at the age of 16!" (Kadyrenysh Jr.). But there is also a higher court - a TRULY PEOPLE one, at which it will be asked both from such "heroes" and from those who "heroized" them as heroes.

      Today we recall those who have the high title of Hero of the Fatherland deservedly in the hearts of the grateful Russian people.
      Kvachkov! Khabarov! Budanov! Khudyakov! Arakcheev! ...
      The best representatives of our PEOPLE are thrown today by scum for a lattice. Someone is killed, someone is forced to hide ... How long will we, Russians, wait and, most importantly, what?



      And you just need a few tens of thousands of paratroopers, a couple of thousand commandos and a hundred other thousand armed Russian men. Just go to the Kremlin, and knock the butts on the paving stones. And tomorrow we will live in our own, Russian, country, with Russian power and the Russian order!

    We sit once at Earrings Fomin -

    At the military registration and enlistment office they told me: "Old man,
    The native factory "Compressor" gives you armor! "
    I refused - and Seryozha Fomina
    He was saved from the army by his father, a professor.

    I pour blood for you, my country,
    And yet my heart is indignant:
    I pour blood for Earring Fomin -
    And he sits and does not blow in his mustache!

    Now I suppose he walks around the kines -
    There is a chronicle about us before the session, -

    And he is a Hero of the Soviet Union ...
