Happy holiday, Guard!

77
September 2 celebrates the Day of the Russian Guard in our country. The decree on celebrating this day was signed in Russia in December 2000, but история domestic guard is much longer. It takes its beginnings during the reign of Peter I, who, in the distant 1687 year, by his decree, ordered the so-called amicable army to become the Russian (Russian) Guard, later to be called the imperial one. The first Guards divisions in Russia were the Preobrazhensky and Semenov regiments, which received their new status (in the German manner) in 1700.

The word “guard” itself became associated with a special privilege in the army. This is due to the fact that the soldiers of the Guard (Life Guards) at all times were close to state leaders. Literally translated into Russian, the term "Life Guardsman" means "bodyguard", but the literal translation of the term has not so much in common with the actual use of Guardsmen in Russia and not only Russia.

Features of the service under the monarchs played a role in the XVIII century in Russia. The guards not only differed courage and valor during the battles on the fronts of the Russian-Turkish wars, the war with Sweden, but also, as it happens, were involved in palace coups. One of the most famous palace coups of the Russian Empire, in which the Guardsmen played an important role, took place on June 28, 1762. On that day, the guardsmen swore allegiance to Catherine, which completed the short stay on the Russian throne of Emperor Peter III. Already in September of the same year, Catherine was crowned in Moscow, becoming the Russian Empress Catherine II.

Under Paul I, the status of the guard in Russia somewhat decreases. By the decree of the emperor, the guard ranks are equal in rights with the ranks of the army, and a few years later representatives of the peasantry appear in the guard. Thus, a special battalion of the imperial militia was formed from specific peasants in 1806 (under Alexander I), and two years later, for their military merit and excellent service, they became guardsmen. Three years later, on the basis of this unit, the Finnish Life Guards Regiment was formed in Russia.

By the time of the October Revolution of 1917, the Russian guard had an impressive composition. In addition to the three guards corps with cavalry, artillery and infantry divisions, the Russian guard included such units as the railway regiment of His Imperial Majesty, the field squadron of the gendarmerie, the combined infantry regiment and the Convoy of His Imperial Majesty, engineer and even aviation detachments.

After the Russian Empire ceased to exist, and the power of the Bolsheviks was consolidated in the country, the Russian Imperial Guard also ceased to exist. Although individual officers of the Imperial Guard, who were in exile, continued to call themselves representatives of the guard cohort. Abroad, Russian emigrants created the Russian All-Military Union, which included the Guards Association and the associations of the regiments of the Russian Imperial Guard.

Three months after the start of the Great Patriotic War in the USSR, the decision was made to recreate the guard units. At the same time, the status of guards military units, warships, and formations received for the courage and heroism of their personnel. The first representatives of the Soviet guard were the 100-I, 127-I, 153-I and 161-I infantry divisions. The order for assigning guard status to these divisions was signed on 18 September 1941 of the year, after which the division numbers changed. Divisions began to be called 1, 2, 3 and 4 th guards rifle divisions.

In 1942, a special sign “Guard” appeared, as well as a Guards naval flag, on which, in addition to a red star, red sickle and hammer, on a white background and a blue band below, appeared St. George ribbon.



During the Great Patriotic War, more than a hundred divisions, dozens of soldiers received the title of Guards for the heroism and courage of soldiers. tank and artillery brigades, mechanized corps and other units and their formations.

Happy holiday, Guard!

If we talk about the modern guard, then it also includes units and their units (plus warships), whose personnel showed themselves in a special way. The very revival of the guard in the new time is connected, as reported in the presidential decree of 2000, with the need to develop domestic military traditions and enhance the prestige of military service.

Unfortunately, in the course of reforming the Russian army in 2008-2010, it was not without its “optimization” as part of the guard units. So, in May 2009, the 2-I Guards Taman Motorized Rifle Division was disbanded. Instead, it appeared 5-I motorized rifle brigade of the Moscow Military District, with the preservation of regalia. And although the regalia remained, the disbandment of the celebrated division left its negative imprint. In 2013, by the decision of the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, the 2 Guards Tamanskaya Order of the October Revolution, the Red Banner Order of Suvorov, the motorized rifle division was recreated, and its parade calculation took part in the Victory Parade under its historical name. The return of the Guard divisions brought a truly new life to the Russian army.

Video of the parade of the 2 th Taman Guards Division parade on the Red Square 9 of May 2013 of the year (their TV show Zvezda):


On this day, "Military Review" congratulates all whose military path is connected with service in the guard units, who rightfully wore (or wear today) distinctive guards insignia. The status of the Guard is something that the soldier especially notes, which makes him proud and learn from his experience. Guardsmen, we wish you bogatyr (Guards) health and the achievement of any goals that you set for yourself! Happy holiday, guard!

        Unfortunately, many of the guard units that defeated Germany in 45 are no longer there.
        The collapse of the USSR and the reduction of the RF Armed Forces did not pass by the guard units either.
        Including there were no 2-x registered guards
        - 25-I Guards Rifle Sinelnikov-Budapest Red Banner Orders of Suvorov and Bogdan Khmelnitsky Division. V.I. Chapaeva transferred to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. It was deployed in the city of Lubny (Kiev Military District), at the end of the 90-ies disbanded.
        - The 8 Idritsko-Rezhitskaya Guards of the Fighting Red Banner and the Order of Suvorov, named after Hero of the Soviet Union, Major General Ivan Vasilievich Panfilov, after the collapse of the USSR, became part of the Northern Group of Forces of the Kyrgyz Armed Forces, disbanded in 2003.
        BUT thanks to the Kyrgyz. On July 11 2011, on the eve of the 70 anniversary of the founding of the division, the division was re-formed; it is currently deployed in Tokmok (near Bishkek), the commander is Colonel Temirov Arthur Maratovich.

        Colonel-General Erich Göpner, who commanded the 4th Panzer Group, whose striking forces were defeated in battles with the 8th Guards Rifle Division, called it in his reports to the commander of the Center von Bock group - “a wild division fighting in violation of all the charters and rules fighting, the soldiers of which do not surrender, are extremely fanatical and not afraid of death. "

        A people knowing and remembering their history, sacredly keeping traditions is invincible.
        This is well known to the enemies of Russia and their mercenaries sitting in the Kremlin.
        Livanov, declared by Putin, the publication of a single textbook of Russian history, was not without reason canceled.

        At all times, the Russian guard terrified our enemies.


        The Russian guard ended in the 1917 year.
        In 1941, the Soviet began.


        And when the alcoholic finished smashing the Soviet legacy, his successor from the remaining units created a pretentious "Russian Guard", however, the scarlet banners, under which these units became guards, under which they defended the "conquests of socialism", and not the tsar-pea, were replaced with colored "Imperial" rags, apparently do not like the "hammer and sickle" in the Kremlin.



        The guard must defend the IDEA. There is no idea in the country. That's what you want, and imperial loyalty and Soviet citizenship are incompatible things.

          What new model is this? New from old differs only in one - there is no inscription at the bottom of the icon the USSR - and that’s it. If you mean the sign with George the Victorious and the tricolor, then this sign has long been canceled. In any case, with us, in the Airborne Forces.

    It was the first successful offensive operation that forced the Germans to flinch and retreat. The Soviet guard was born in it. It was not forged by paper, but then, by blood and steel.

    Guys, do not waste your nerves on the Ukrainian. military units! In Ukraine, there was no guard.The guard names inherited from their units from the SA, the junta military commanders infamously shame! And the so-called nats-guards cannot be defined by definition. They are ordinary naz fascists! am
    Quote: Andrey 447
    I think that it will be right for the captive ukrovsk to take back the historical names of units (especially the guards)

    I have already spoken about their "guard".Other military units simply stole their honorary names from the Soviet army along with Banners and orders, and therefore wore them by no means! No. Moreover, they got new banners with its national cookie (that’s what their trident was called in the USSR Army in 1918 - Denikins precisely noticed the essence of this sign!). The honorary title must still be earned. And what did these warriors deserve except for curses and shame ?! am
    Quote: Andrey 447
    assign them to militia units

    I think that over time, full-fledged military formations with army discipline and traditions will be formed from units of the militia. Let them give them honorary names. Surely they will be consonant with the former glorious DONETSK, DONBASS, MARIUPOL, LISICHANSK, KHARKIV, SUM and further on the geography of Ukraine!
    And they will be deserved in a fair and righteous battle,and not in the mean "ATO" !! soldier

      Nobody called it "guard" but the meaning is the same.
      The country as such did not have a guard because it was part of the Republic of Ingushetia and the USSR.

    The guard was always ahead and behind enemy lines, which was forest and wonderful. And served as the basis for many breakthroughs to be the defense of the enemy or the ring of the environment!

    I want to congratulate Tu, Young Guardi, who was buried alive in the ground, but no one betrayed their homeland.

    I believe that you will return from the other world so that more people are not buried alive in the Donbass.

    By the way, have you ever wondered how similar the building of the tribunal in The Hague and the casino in Singapore are? How and who should judge whom? Hugo boss or Slavia?

    What's even more fantastic is to trace the history of the label development for the Stolichnaya brand, and the places of its bottling in different periods!

    Good luck, behind enemy lines and underground! I hope the Guardsmen do not abandon their own, except ... with parachutes and with full ammunition!

    By the way, why does the main entrance to the Butovo training ground resemble a valve from a village toilet? And what about the perimeter of the speed camera at the crossroads in Australia?

    And what's on the list of raster deletes by Michael Dudikoff, or someone very similar to Neggo?

    It seems that in parallel I discovered, not an element of Ser 16Si, which simply miraculously expels chiri. But the big secret that Masonic pacifist dogs are so concerned about.

    Here is an example of a cross from Solovki

    to the left - dreams to the right - KA, meaning for me the helicopters of the Navy KA, such as the helicopter Ka-32A11BC (C-JKHL), which made a rough landing in the vicinity of the village of Bella Coola (Canada)

    Above is the King, but what is still interesting is the abbreviation:

    1C - one sees - is that advertising a dollar, or a higher caste of toads?
    on the other hand, on the right side of the XC - what does the Russian Navy's rabbiopellengaters and locators under the St.

    And the Freemasons are in a neighborhood with the Belarusian Church: both "crown and arrow"


    , and all this is taken in a circle.

      Kostya, stop raving. Not dreams, but a son. Jesus Christ is the son of God. Nika means victory over death.

      this is the Crimean Tatar who figured out what's what. In empires, do not look at nationalities

    Service in the 180th Guards Fighter and Aviation Regiment is a memory for life. He ended his service in non-guard units, but pride always remained. Happy Holidays dear GUARDS !!!
