MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
More than 700 sites created on the basis of military command and control bodies, formations, military units and educational institutions of the Ministry of Defense, hosted the action “Victory Dictation”. It was attended by over 80 thousand servicemen and youth soldiers.
Throughout the country, from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk to Kaliningrad and from Murmansk to Novorossiysk, servicemen once again tested their knowledge of the bloodiest war.
The main platform for writing “Victory Dictation” was the decision-making hall of the National Center for Defense Management of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. The dictation was attended by the Deputy Minister of Defense – Head of the Main Military-Political Directorate, Colonel-General Andrei Kartapolov.
“Today, on the eve of the national holiday – the 76th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War – we have the opportunity to once again turn to the immortal feat of the Soviet people, which, in the most difficult conditions of war, defended freedom, independence and the very existence of our Motherland,” said the Deputy Minister …
He noted the relevance of the dictation in the modern world. “It is no coincidence that various kinds of pseudo-histories serving the collective geopolitical interests of a number of Western countries have become noticeably active in recent years. They are trying to falsify history in such a way as to blame the Soviet Union for unleashing the Second World War and on this false basis push through the thesis about the alleged [existing] historical aggressiveness of Russia, “Kartapolov said, speaking to the participants in the dictation.
The dictation took place in the form of testing. Participants were asked to answer 25 questions on the events of the Great Patriotic War, including knowledge of both military history and literary and artistic works of military subjects. Each question contained 4 possible answers, of which the participants had to choose the correct one in the shortest time.
For the first time, the action “Victory Dictation” was held in 2019. Representatives of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation took part in it for the first time in 2020. Moreover, every fourth participant from the Ministry of Defense scored the highest score.
20 representatives of the military department scored the maximum number of points, were recognized as winners and awarded with diplomas of the organizing committee.
