In all churches located in the territories of formations and military units of the Southern Military District (YuVO), as well as on the territory of foreign military bases, festive liturgies were held with the celebration of the Cross Procession in honor of the holiday of the Bright Resurrection of Christ.

To perform religious rituals, more than 100 full-time assistants to the commanders of military units were involved in working with believing servicemen, as well as about 60 clergymen on a voluntary basis, nursing servicemen in agreement with the leadership of the territorial diocesan administrations of the Russian Orthodox Church.

Particular attention was paid to the servicemen who are at the training grounds of the garrison. For them, festive services were organized in expanded field Orthodox churches. The temple is a field tent, equipped inside in accordance with the canons of the Russian Orthodox Church. It can accommodate more than 30 people at a time, and its installation takes no more than one hour.

In connection with the holiday, changes were made to the lunch menu of the servicemen. On the tables are consecrated Easter eggs and Easter cakes, baked for the occasion by the chefs of enterprises that organize meals in the soldiers’ canteens.
