Military Review

All-Russian Day of Recruit

24
November 15 is the All-Russian Day of the Recruit in our country. In the calendar, this holiday appeared in a difficult time for the state - in 1992 year. For all, to put it mildly, the ambiguity of the policy pursued by the then state authorities, the attention that needs to be paid to popularizing military service among young people was still remembered. Perhaps they remembered “through I can't” ...


It should be noted that the appearance of the All-Russian Day of the Recruit in the calendar at that time was, perhaps, the only manifestation of concern on the part of the state about the future of the Russian defense shield. The country itself was on the verge of survival, and by no means everyone in 1992 understood exactly which state should take the military oath - borders broke, internal conflict broke out without outside intervention, Russia was confronted with a terrorist threat that quickly found the weakest points in the system security. Moreover, the state authorities declared that from now on Russia has no enemies, everyone suddenly became our best friends, the market is our everything, the army is a relic of the scoop. All sorts of “committees have never given birth to soldiers' mothers” appeared, the funding of which was generously provided by all the same “friends” (by the way, it is still ongoing). The agenda of those who did not give birth consisted in the thesis: military service is not an honorable duty, but a yoke, that is why it is taboo to let your sons go to military service. Why, still friends around ...

The beginning and the mid-90s is also a time when the activity of such committees and other “human rights” organizations, along with painstaking work to break up the country's defense capabilities, has led to a level of confidence in the army. Arguments in the style of “abroad will help us” began to come to naught only at that moment when the terrorist rabble sponsored by the “partners” not only threatened the sovereignty of the country, but called into question the further survival of Russian statehood as such. The veil of trust in “friends” and euphoria about the “freedom” that fell on my head (as it was then called) began to disappear, Russia experienced a series of bloody conflicts, including through which it was forged that without unity Russia has no future, no way without powerful army and fleet.

But a powerful army and a combat-ready fleet cannot be built without trained servicemen, without precise work by military commissariats, without a well-functioning conscription system. Today, and this is encouraging to talk about, work of this kind is underway.

All-Russian Day of Recruit


In all Russian regions, as part of the Recruit's Day, events are held in which young people and, by the way, interested girls are shown an army life, samples of modern weapons, tells about the combat path of an army formation.



Much attention during the meetings of servicemen with future defenders of the Fatherland is paid to the regulations of service in the modern army. The officers of the military commissariats say that they often hear not even a question from pre-conscripts, but the real statement that the service life has allegedly increased for some time, and that the young recruits will have to serve in the army not for 12 months, and almost 2-3 times longer. The servicemen complain that such “ducks” are often spread through social networks and their goal is clearly to put an opportunity to throw a grain of doubt into the souls of young people about the very feasibility of military service. The officers of the military commissariats responsibly declare that the term of service for those serving on conscription remains the same - exactly 12 months, and the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is not going to revise it.

Before you go to the army, the young man must undergo a medical examination. Here recently there was a reason for optimism. Members of draft commissions and employees of the main defense department of the country note a reduction in the number of persons who are considered unfit for medical purposes to serve in the army. The percentage of young people who suffer from underweight has decreased. And, most importantly, this is a trend that has been marked for several years now.

An important aspect of the call is the understanding by the young man that service in the army is an honorable duty. Defending one’s homeland, one’s home, is what distinguishes a real man - a man who can stand up for himself, for his relatives and friends, for the country. The Ministry of Defense also says that for some time now the percentage of those “running” from military registration and enlistment offices has also decreased. This shows an increase in the prestige of service in the Russian army.



The information component here plays a significant role. If the 15-20 years ago, the level of dirt poured on the army through the media was prohibitive, and this affected the authority of the military and the attitude of young people to the service, then today the situation is different.

Of course, those informational (or, more correctly, disinformational) resources are preserved, which their task is to pick out only negatives and dill for trying to form the image of the defender of the Fatherland, which is more like a human misunderstanding. But the attitude to this kind of resources, the society has managed to develop appropriate. More people, including young people, began to understand a significant thing: there are enough problems in the army, as in any other field of activity, but problems will not go anywhere if you try to shift the responsibility for their decision "to the neighbor". More citizens began to realize that the combat-ready, trained, secured army is not a whim of statesmen, it is a guarantee of state sovereignty, and if you treat military service as someone else’s duty, but not yourself, is it possible after that consider yourself a patriot, and indeed a responsible citizen?

"Military Review" considers it necessary to appeal to the younger generation of Russians.

Friends, the main law of the Russian Federation - the Constitution says that the defense of the Fatherland is the duty and duty of a citizen of the Russian Federation. This is not just a legal wording. In these words is what is called civil liability, an understanding of its role in strengthening the security of the country. The word MOTHERHOOD itself, containing in the text of Article 59 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, says that the young defender of the Motherland must be aware of the connection between generations, not forgetting that there were people in his family who contributed to the protection of the integrity and independence of the country, perhaps giving their lives for her. - Life for the country, which is our big common home, where everyone has not only rights, but also responsibilities. This memory and this respect can and must become the basis for understanding our important place in the diverse society of Russian citizens.

    Rather, this is not a holiday, but the date of the reminder of service in the army ... There are really a lot of chernukha in the cinema and the media ... People should be reminded that the defense of the Fatherland is the duty of ALL citizens of Russia, and not just youth students and students ...

      People should be reminded that the defense of the Fatherland is the duty of ALL citizens of Russia, and not just youth students and students ...


      Do not even doubt that this is, indeed, the duty of all CITIZENS OF RUSSIA: not students, "contract soldiers", just young men who know that "if not them, then who?"

      And, here is that PROTECTION OF THE FATHERLAND - THE SACRED DUTY OF ALL CITIZENS OF RUSSIA, should remind "sovereign people", who live on our taxes and administer on our behalf !!!
      Perhaps it should be limited in this regard the sale of firearms (issuance of permits for its acquisition) to persons who did not take the Oath with military weapons in their hands? There will be no excesses with shooting ...
      Maybe we should restrict the issuance of driving licenses to those who know about the army from books about the soldier Ivan Chonkin and the films "DMB-1, 2, 3 ..."? There will be no accidents with the participation of these acne, imagining themselves "navels of the earth", crashing their sports cars and breaking other people's cars, injuring our citizens ...
      what

      I want to wish all the conscripts, future DEFENSEERS of the FATHERLAND, good health, success in mastering the military school, and long years of life for the benefit of the Fatherland and their loved ones.

    Those who did not serve did not see life. There was such a belief in the 70-90 years of the last century.
    Not serving in the Army, was considered either mentally ill or an inferior person.
    Time has passed, and it is safe to say that public opinion has changed dramatically. And it is often not in favor of serving in the ranks of the RF Armed Forces. This is the purchase of "white tickets", medical certificates that give exemption from service and other "slopes".
    But in most cases, young people still go to the service of their own free will.
    And there are many positive reasons for this: from the very change in attitude to the service, to all kinds of improved conditions. Such as: clothing and money allowance, improvement of living and service conditions, and a host of other terms.

    In short, with the Holiday of Future Warriors! soldier

        At one time, I had to drink cognac with a military registration and enlistment office employee in order to join the army! Otherwise, they would have taken it only six months later. But I was already unbearable to be stuck in a rural school as a mathematics teacher, very quickly I realized that pedagogy was not my calling. I served my due - and I do not regret it. He began to look at some things differently.

    Usually, visits to military units on this day, familiarity with everyday life, and weapons are carried out for students aged 15-17 who have a call on their nose. The event is useful in that many people enter the territory of the military unit for the first time and see with their own eyes how Russian soldiers live and serve. Many take up arms for the first time. The main thing is that this day is remembered for a long time, and someone gives an impetus to the thought of a future profession.

    Now it’s hard for a young man to explain why he MUST. I was born in the USSR, had free education, upbringing, medicine, etc. Children who were born in Russia receive free education, upbringing and medicine only on a piece of paper. In fact, now we pay for everything. Kindergarten, hospital, sanatoriums are all paid. Universities are the same. The share of budget places in the educational institution is negligible and everything is done to ensure that the student falls into the paid department. And then the retired colonel, the military commissar with a proud look, begins to tell what our good homeland has given everyone a start in life, brought up, fed and cured, and therefore we need to protect our homeland and pay off debt !!! And you MUST do this !! And the conscript begins to think what debt should be given to his homeland .. What the Motherland did for him for free. We owed the USSR, but whether Russia owed great doubts. The motherland is one for all, both for the son of a locksmith and for the son of Arkady Rotenberg. That's just different debts. I understand that the country needs to be protected, but the soldier must be motivated!

    it is necessary, it is not necessary ... in peacetime it is everyone’s private affair, and it is not necessary to inculcate the point and the point about duty and duty ... but when the fate of the Motherland and the individual are intertwined, they will remember and count about everyone ...
    preventing a "sharp drop in the rating", I hasten to inform you that I myself was called up on an urgent basis at 23,5 years old and still no demobilization, although it is inevitable ... soldier
    PS In the 90s, yes, the Polish-bottled Napoleon cognac was almost a 100% guarantee of being called to places where bears or gophers were not abundant ... wink
    it’s just that when in any society the emphasis is sharply shifted towards the need to defend the homeland, this only speaks of one of two things ... and aliens have nothing to do with it ...
    I strongly recommend that you study and take civil defense courses ...

    No need to judge a movie without watching it!
    And why are you worse white than red? Whoever thinks that the whites served the West and only officers, as well as the intelligentsia and the bourgeoisie fought for them, I advise you to turn to documentary literature and films - most of their army was made up of soldiers, workers and peasants (no matter how strange it may sound). And just the whites defended the interests of the Motherland! They wanted to create a single and indivisible Russia, and the Bolsheviks, on the contrary (remember who gave Finland), and if not for Stalin, then Russia would have come to an end! And by the way, who does not know - 1913 was a very good year for the people, it was even called "blessed" and there is no need to say something about Nicholas II without knowing anything!

I do not know how his service will turn out, but I know for sure - the Motherland needs to be defended, regardless of what preferences the state gives or does not give. I wish all the guys carrying the health service, success in the military and political, of course, return home. We love you and are waiting for you.
