May Day in the style of Airborne


I will not reveal the huge secret that Voronezh in terms of respect for the airborne forces is not much inferior to Ryazan or Pskov. The birthplace of the first landing is, you know, obliging.

Marines are not just a lot. It so happened. And the range is amazing. Especially on 2 August.

But, oddly enough, it will not be about discharged bathing lovers in the fountains.

It will be about those who care who and what will be in our day after tomorrow.

For five years, under the auspices of the Voronezh Union of paratroopers, training and fees have been held for the younger generations. And so it happened that I got to the opening of such an event. And then he lingered until the end of the first day.

Everything is generally predictable. The same as in one of my articles I called “private initiative”. Camp in the forest, tents, boys and girls. And the group, let's say, enthusiasts in their field. Which instead of barbecue at the cottage or other pleasant pastime held these competitions.

Present 6 teams from the city and region. About 70 members. Last year there was more, but in connection with the celebration of the Victory Day some "plowed" in the field.

Everything was more than modest and simple. The shortest rally in honor of the opening, minutes on 10, passed into the briefing. And got down to business.

On this day, participants had to go the route on the map and the legend, to descend and ascend with the help of equipment. The route had to be passed covertly, at some points “snipers” with cameras kept watch. Contact with the lens was punished with a serious 10 minute penalty.


Three heroes: Andrei Valerievich, chief paratrooper, Semyon and Arthur from the Don-Airborne Club, organizers.

Last instruction from the tutor. At a distance, participants leave without teachers.

Check equipment: water, first-aid kits, other necessities.

Three minutes before the start.

Everything, go ahead!

Frankly speaking, I couldn’t be able to say saiga along with the participants. Therefore, I chose the site where they were supposed to overcome the rise, and quietly trotted there.

The judges are waiting.

The first arrived.

The first participant and one of the judges carry out lifting.

That's how they went ...

To the finish line!

Report to the mentor.

Camp participants.

The lady has her advantages.

Amused such a moment: the organizers summed up, waited for the "snipers" to come, and the participants quietly dispersed to the camps and started cooking. On their own.

"And they have prepared tourists!" - told me. This was addressed to his team one of the mentors. It was about students 7 classes ... Slightly stunned, I went to check. He returned a little dumbfounded, for it was so.

In general, as an amateur to talk, I learned a lot of interesting things. So much so that the presentation of some moments of the patriotic education of young people intends to devote a separate material.

And I would like to finish today's story with such an episode. I asked, I confess, from personal interests, how it turns out to “reach out” to the guys and tear them away from computers and other delights of today. And Semyon answered me the following:

- I tell them the following: this is your country. You are her future. And, if I die in my old age in the Chinese garbage can, only you will be guilty of this. Here, it works ...

Here is such a May Day turned out in green-blue tones. And you say, "pheasants in fountains" ...

      And this is because they have different goals: the sixth-liberian column is dribbling the very country that patriots and these boys and girls consider theirs: by the way, the very ones who are going to twist the boshniks to such Deribaners and privatizers.
      The paratroopers are doing a great deal, not in an example of the chinote of all education and culture.

      educating young people and cultivating patriotism and pride in their country is a very necessary and important thing. In Ukraine, no one did this and people grew up who did not value the merits of their grandfathers, who did not know their history, and therefore were easy prey for all kinds of propaganda neo-Nazi structures and organizations As a result, Ukrainians, having overslept the formation of more than one generation without principles and historical values, received what they received.
      Therefore, looking at all this, there is only one conclusion and one solution - the country's security directly depends on what youth we educate and what values ​​will be sacred for it. The word patriotism after 20 years of oblivion returns its relevance and topicality.

    Why snipers during the Second World War were the best, was the preparation of “Voroshilov arrows”. Why the Nazis were afraid of our hand-to-hand combat, there was also the initial military preparation of the TRP, the game "Zarnitsa" and the like.

      And, even in the workbooks of the Wehrmacht officers, records were found of how the Russians are able to disguise themselves - the large units are so disguised that when they start shelling, it seems that the earth itself is shooting and all this was done during the initial military training in the game.

    May Day in the style of airborne

    The upbringing of youth is a good and necessary thing, but moreover, in the title of the article, May Day?

    May Day - this Labor Day - for 8-hour working day, for a salary higher than the subsistence level, etc. .. Has anyone heard what requirements did the union put forward to the government? What requirements were put forward in the last May Day and were they met, and if not, why is the leader of the union still the same?

    They turned May Day into an ordinary holiday of a popular booze-party, as if there were no problems in the country.

    A good example, it’s probably not the only one throughout the country, but we have such organizations (they cannot be named otherwise) like Cadet and Suvorov (Nakhimov) schools, cadet classes for which the state allocates money, and local budgets like they’re not greedy, by the way, they’ve been trying to recreate the Mikhailovsky Cadet Corps in Voronezh for about 20 years and even the classes already exist, so to what it turned out, the training programs there are no better in terms of patriotic and historical education than in ordinary schools, specialized military training takes a minimum of time in relation to the standard set of disciplines, as a result, most graduates of these educational institutions do not go to military schools, in Moscow Suvorovsky for TWO of the last two years, nearly FIVE went from almost 200 graduates to military universities, but almost 50% went to prestigious civilian universities . What is the conversation about, everything we have done recently has been done only at the expense of enthusiasts, but for the money everything is practically, through one place. And it’s a pity that this happens. I'm not talking about the fact that it’s almost impossible for a boy to come from a simple family or from an orphanage to these schools. And such opportunities from the state to remove from the street, including children from dysfunctional families, are not used, but it's a pity

To be able to navigate in the forest, some medicinal plants knew when they needed to, were able to move silently and remain invisible, 《read 》 Traces. I am silent about the rest. Small yet.

    Tourism, of course, is good, but what about parachute training? I remember courses from the draft board, special for three months. It was called up already with a badge, and a month later the first gossip hanged. As I understand it, jumping is expensive today, and young people jumping for free already at the expense of Uncle Vasya? And yet, warps several, Airborne. Separate units, outside the subordination of the Airborne Forces, on the day, as it were, were not considered 100% "their own." Our 56 DShB, only last year officially passed under the command of the Airborne Forces. So we stacked separately, special forces, seconded rexes ourselves, although almost the only ones wore military awards. In fact, the Airborne Forces are just the Airborne Forces, that is, those whom the sky made them hold on to for life, but otherwise not worse and not better than the rest of the Russian army. From that I would like less fuss, similar to speculation in myth. And it’s possible to make sure that a chef in a blue beret, by status, will be higher than a paevoshnik who performs a combat mission every day.
