Today Nikolaev 79-ая the airmobile crew celebrated Day Voyenno - air armies of Ukraine! Fighters suited a facade of hand-to-hand fight, fight imitation, showed power of fighting vehicles, shot and jumped with parachutes.
Today everyone could pass freely on the territory of paratroopers. The former soldiers brought wives and children, at a facade came to look and young children simply fond of war games.
Since morning near barracks there were fighters and showed the weapon: everyone could be photographed with machine guns and sniper rifles, sit at a wheel of military cars, and even to get into the helicopter (even the view from windows was precisely not on - to the military interesting):
In the territory of part there were trays where business owners suited "shops" and - la "Landing". It was possible to buy all equipment of the paratrooper: blue berets (around 35 UAH), camouflages ("piece of glass" - 115 UAH), a sword belt and aiguilettes (80 UAH), and also cockardes, counters and badges, "corners", and even chevrons! As soldiers speak are for the military personnel. But can buy all civil. But if you in full regimentals catches in the city patrulno - sentry duty - so simply you won't get off. This violation of the law. But even kids were "at all parade".
The commander of crew colonel Maslennikov (in the center in a white shirt) watches speeches of fighters.
- Eight months we serve here already. The main thing for the paratrooper is sports and combat training, - the fighter participating in a facade, Anton Demenskikh tells. - For service it is necessary to jump four five times. The second time is always more terrible than the first when already you know that to be afraid. But - it is simple not to transfer impressions of the first jump!
In Ukraine Day of airborne forces celebrates not so many parts:
- We have here 16 divisions, - the fighter Ruslan Bezler, - in Ukraine tells only four vozdushno - amphibious units: three crews and one regiment. In Lviv a regiment, in Zhitomir, Novomoskovsk and in Nikolaev - crews.
And the facade was farther:hand-to-hand fight, eating of toads (we checked, toads the presents! ) tile dissecting (yes, not polyfoam! ) hands, feet and even the heads, lying under freight on beaten glass, fight imitation, shots from a howitzer, jumps with parachutes … Generally, you look:
With Day of airborne forces!
