Military Review

We are soldiers of the motherland, and our brotherhood is holy


Plowing the endless expanses of the “World Wide Web,” I accidentally hit a modest Ukrainian website with the unobtrusive name 117orb. And something sharp pain stabbed in the heart. For a strange abbreviation in Latin, long-standing memories suddenly stood out ... 117 separate reconnaissance battalion.

Shel 1985 year. Far Eastern WOCA overdone, raking in on themselves all the marines. And left without a dirk, neomorflochenny, but shining with a new lieutenant form like a polished penny, the former Kiev poker arrived for service in the quiet green town of Bila Tserkva ...

It would seem, what else do you want? The girls are beautiful, not far from Kiev. But the unfulfilled dream of becoming a Marine officer did not let go. Anywhere, to the Far East, in the Arctic - just to get the coveted dirk.

Dream called for long. Comrade Colonel! Lieutenant Skvirtsev for further service ... And the service rushed. The order of the lieutenant is simple: a carport-parking lot guard, a carriage guard-polygon ... We were young, we were not afraid ... It was not at all scary when 26 of April 1986 was raised on alarm - Chernobyl ... There is an order - "is", and point.

It was not at all scary when, together with Andrei Isayev, from 10, companies flew over the river ... There is an order, but there is no order ...

Fear appeared later, in January, 90, in Baku ... Because there was no order ... There seemed to be an order, but it was already learned how to answer "is", it seems ...

August 1991 came for me at a distant Trans-Baikal test site, and I did not have to swear allegiance to the new authorities and states. With all the class hatred of EBN, thanks to him and Pavel Grachev (kingdom of heaven) at least for leaving the officers loyal to the Soviet oath ...

But it became scary. Because it is not at all clear ... Then there was the Terrible ... Then ... then ... then ...

But all these years, the college fraternity warmed the soul, made it necessary to believe that everything was dust, and college friendship was forever. We have always been together - Seryoga Skachkov from Odessa, and Vitya Kryzhanovsky from Kiev, and Serega Veselkov from Kazakhstan, and more than a dozen children from different parts of our Motherland, united in a single union with cadet fraternity bonds.

And now - My battalion is not, there is only a site ... And there is a street ... of Colonel Konovalets! They say that Colonel Konovalets Street has long been! If we understood earlier what this census is for. stories, 72 brigade would not have raised the alarm now ...

What are you?!. Where are you going ?! Are you not afraid? Do you understand everything?!. Or on the street of Colonel Konovalets there were only the guardsmen of the Tyagnibok?!.

Under the cries of “keep the thief”, thieves, “chosen” by the people in 2004, take away the stolen things from other thieves, who they voted for in 2010 ... and louder and louder shout to themselves "glory." And already they give commands, sending their Guardsmen to the new “drang nah ost”. And what about the Maidan? The Maidan is silent, the commandant of the government is once, the main sponsor was arrested by American friends (they don’t need Maidan anymore), even Aunt Vika doesn’t bring up a cookie ...

All right Only we are not afraid ... We have already experienced it. We survived Yugoslavia ... We studied in Kosovo ... We learned a lot of things!

Brothers !!! After all, it was the rise ... ka: "Glory to the heroes - the heroes of glory." And because of them - the brigade on alert ...

And what is more terrible - to die, when everything is clear, or to live, when to live is terrible, because it is not clear ?!

And more ... On the site appeal of the veterans of the Ukrainian intelligence to the veterans of the Russian intelligence. Ukrainian Lieutenant-General Vladimir Ivanovich Legominov addresses Russian Colonel-General Vladimir Markovich Izmailov. Thank God for the time being in Russian ... Was it poorly addressed in English? After all, the letterhead of the association of veterans of intelligence in Ukraine have already been transferred?!. Or did you get this form your new owners?!. But what about our old friends, but what about the oath, one oath, which we all gave at the beginning of our combat path ... But I completely agree with the words of my friend Vyacheslav Kuprienko:

We are mortal, and yet - the fatherland is more expensive
And above honor only the firmament.
We are soldiers of the motherland, and our brotherhood is holy -
Scout in battle will not fail.
What will be with us tomorrow, will they return, I do not know
Boys from the eighteenth spring?
We will write the history of the special forces with names
Alive and not returning from the war.

      Elder Seraphim (Tyapochkin). He died in 1982, everyone already knew about what would happen and said so about the future. "Russia must withstand this battle, after suffering and complete impoverishment, she will find the strength to rise up. And the coming revival will begin in the lands conquered by the enemies, among the Russians who remained in the former republics of the Union. There, the Russian people realize that they have lost, realize themselves citizens of the Fatherland that still lives, they will wish to help it rise from the ashes.Many Russians living abroad will help restore life in Russia ... Many of those who can escape from persecution and persecution will return to their ancestral Russian lands, to fill abandoned villages, to cultivate neglected fields, to use the remaining undeveloped subsoil ... the Lord will send help, they will find on the territory of Russia both oil and gas, without which a modern economy is impossible.

      To the question: "What will happen to Ukraine and Belarus?" the elder replied that everything is in the hands of God. Those who in these peoples are against the union with Russia - even if they consider themselves believers - become servants of the devil. The Slavic peoples have a common destiny, and the reverend Fathers of Kiev-Pechersk will also say their weighty word - they, together with the host of Russian New Martyrs, will beg for a new Union of three fraternal peoples.

      Well, what they have done with KVIRTU, I will generally keep silent ... To destroy the only and unique VVUZ in the Union. First, we made a "hybrid" with signalmen, and then they "glued" it to KPI.
      Pictured BOUP Lutezh. Especially the scythe at the entrance looks cool (as I understand it, the AK-74 in the Ukrainian army was changed to other weapons systems).

      We were divided at the beginning of the 90's. As I remember, right after lunch, our course was built on the parade ground and the head of the school read a speech about the collapse of the USSR, after which he announced that those who wish to leave for Ukraine to study in the Kharkov tank can write reports. Two platoons left our platoon, one Ukrainian and a Russian, whose father expressed a desire to serve in the Armed Forces. soldier

    Anything can happen in life. We thought that in the late 90s this would end. But it turns out that Uncle Sam is not enough. He wants more blood. Once we were together, now if they want we will be apart. But I have not yet heard in Russia the cry knives ". Maybe because of nostalgia too.

    I’m not a regular military man, I served urgent as almost all normal men in the USSR. All of us had hazing, there was no chaos, and so on trifles, and our faces were cleaned with each other, including ethnicity, and we drank vodka, biting bacon regardless of religious differences repeat
    But for some reason, for the wedding of one of us, in a very difficult 1993, Chechens and Kazakhs and Russians arrived in Donetsk ... there were a lot of colleagues. Why? Apparently the words about the military brotherhood were still not just words ... I I think so hi

    The motherland was one, in her soul she remained the same, but the villains, in spite of our desire, destroyed our power. So it turned out that many colleagues were now in different countries. But you cannot close friendship with any borders, you cannot tie it with any barbed wires. Friendship lives while we live!

    Article of a fighter. Good fighter. Probably, the journalist would add that the Chinese language was studied at the intelligence department in Kiev Voku. And the sheets with written Chinese characters looked very beautiful, for most people it was completely incomprehensible. And that the field camps were just in a natural paradise- near Rzhishchev. And that the Kiev post office No. 66 was simply torn, receiving and sending huge amounts of correspondence. Which of the sports boxing was one of the most respected (at least in the late 60s, early 70s) in the school. now it’s not so. And the street with the wrong name. And in the center of Kiev there are huge portraits of Bandera. It looks like a theater of the absurd, and not everyone’s favorite city. This theater should be stopped.

        So the most interesting thing is that Ukraine had the highest density of military schools during the Soviet era.
        In general, everything fell apart.
        But we believe in the words of Comrade. Shoigu from 2013 "In a literal sense, we cannot return the entire system of universities that we inherited after the Soviet Union. At the same time, as for many famous schools, many will advocate to revive them, but this process must be adjusted to the goals and tasks facing the army. The training of officers for the armed forces is the most important thing. "

My heart bleeds when I look in the box what they did to the most beautiful city on earth for me - Michurin residents are bad! And on the site of the school, a bacchanalia in the forum, so the brain of the little brothers was washed that it was disgusting to read their opus pseudo-patriotic.

    Yes, the life of the people of our profession has been scattered, there is one! These are all those who have been taught to defend their homeland! I think that while we are alive, while our children and grandchildren live, we will not quarrel and we will not fight with each other and we will not let others talk. We can’t talk bad about dead people, but I personally I wish that all who ruined the USSR, all the current neoliberals, the fifth column, all who contribute to them - burned in hell forever !!! God forgive me, I cannot do otherwise. I have the honor!
