Orthodox servicemen of formations and military units of the Caspian Flotilla (CFL) of the Southern Military District (YuVO) celebrated Easter.

In the places of deployment of the military units of the flotilla, assistants to the commanders of military units for work with believing servicemen, as well as clergymen, congratulated all believers on the Orthodox holiday of Easter. Representatives of the church held a divine liturgy in honor of the bright Resurrection of Christ, and then blessed the festive cakes and sprinkled holy water on Orthodox servicemen.

Changes were also made to the lunch menu of the military; on this day, the chefs prepared traditional Easter eggs and cakes.

Currently, on the territory of the Astrakhan and Makhachkala military garrisons and separate military units of the CFL there are more than 100 various religious objects. All of them are registered by the departments for work with religious servicemen and are under the care of military clergy.
