In the military units of the Novorossiysk Guards Airborne Assault Mountain Formation, stationed in the cities of Novorossiysk, Stavropol, Anapa and Feodosia, a solemn ritual of swearing in the newly arrived replenishment took place.

In front of their commanders, comrades, relatives and friends, the young guardsmen solemnly swore allegiance to the Motherland. The words of this oath remain in the memory for life. Each of them will carry personal responsibility for protecting the Fatherland, which we inherited from our ancestors. In total, about 100 recruits swore allegiance to their Fatherland.

Before taking the oath, the young soldiers completed a general military training course. For a whole month, the recruits studied the regulations, were engaged in drill, physical and fire training.

The most important occupation for the future paratroopers was airborne training, where they learned how to lay the D-10 parachute system and the Z-5 parachute system. We practiced the practical actions of ground training of the elements of the jump, the correct separation when landing from the model of the Mi-8 helicopter, we learned how to operate in the air on the slipway of the suspension systems and the correct landing. The culmination of the initial training was the performance of the first parachute jump.

The unit commanders held meetings with the parents of the servicemen and answered all their questions. During the year of their service, the paratroopers will undergo training in their military specialty, take part in field exits, live firing, exercises of various levels and make parachute jumps from various types of aircraft and helicopters, including the Il-76md military transport aircraft.
