      Congratulations to the Guardsmen of the paratroopers!
      I regret one thing, why did they replace the battle banners, fanned with great victories, with which they went through the whole war, with vague modern, Serdyukoff standards. Where are the traditions? Why are the "gentlemen" of the army reformers afraid of whose tune are you dancing? Nobody has the right to take the Red Battle Banner from units and formations - this glory was obtained in battles and the Banner is a symbol of the unit !!!

      That is, the Kamyshin 56th Separate Guards Airborne Assault Order of the Patriotic War The Don Cossack Brigade is not paratroopers, but ...
      More careful with definitions.
      If they had not taken control of the Russian-Georgian border in 1999, it remains to be seen how the Second War would have passed. And they are practically the only Russian paratroopers, used for their intended purpose, as paratroopers, not infantry.

      There are already more of them in the Western Military District than combined arms men. And events in Ukraine have shown that the predominant development of the airborne forces to the detriment of motorized rifles is a dead end.

    I hope the news is true!
    Igor Ivanovich Strelkov returned from short-term leave from the Russian Federation. He returned not empty-handed. He now has a special mission. He will coordinate the counterattack of the militias of the LPR and DPR as a military adviser. At the moment, there is a joint special operation of the militia forces. Soon you will see for yourself!

    QUESTION: Vladimir Vladimirovich, can I clarify? The people who carried out the blocking of units of the Ukrainian army in the Crimea were in uniform very similar to the Russian military uniform. Were these Russian soldiers, were they Russian military?

    VLADIMIR PUTIN: And you look at the post-Soviet space. It’s full of form, which looks like a form ... Go to the store with us and you will buy any form there.

    QUESTION: But were they Russian soldiers or not?

    VLADIMIR PUTIN: These were local self-defense forces.

    “This year, you also honorably fulfilled special tasks for the return of the Republic of Crimea to Russia,” the minister stressed.

    it looks funny now

      Even the Americans were silent. Most likely, these were still not army ones. Those appeared later, at the stage of disarmament and liquidation of ukrogarnizons. Together with special forces and local Russian marines.
