Thematic Yunarmey carriage as part of the Ministry of Defense train “We are the army of the country! We are the army of the people! ” made a trip around Russia. During the movement of the echelon, the action was attended by more than half a million people, including more than 40 thousand Yunarmeys.

The train with the Yunarmeysky carriage “Youth – the vanguard of the generation” passed through the European part of the country, the Urals, Siberia and the Far East. The train traveled all over the country in 60 days, stopping in more than 50 cities. And not only in large centers, but also in such settlements as Tynda, Novy Urgal, Skovorodino.

“Each city has thousands of local residents and huge queues to view the exhibitions. Particular attention was paid to our carriage, where teenagers could discover virtual reality games, compete in radio-controlled tanks, and get acquainted with the work of the School of Young Correspondents. And as the guys said, adults did not lag behind the little visitors, who, though for a short time, managed to return to childhood, “said Nikita Nagorny, head of the UNARMIA General Staff.

The Yunarmey carriage included eight playgrounds and educational grounds. In all cities, local activists acted as guides and mentors. Disassembly and assembly of the AK-74 layout, a spils map of Russia and its regions, quizzes and film lectures, an interactive shooting gallery – all this was available while the train was parked.

“A train journey is a big, exciting and joyful event. It is not every day that you see almost all residents in one place. I liked that the Yunarmey carriage combined an entertainment element with the study of history and testing of my knowledge of geography. For example, in one quiz we touched upon the development of railway transport using the example of the construction of the legendary BAM “, – said Stanislav Parshintsev, a youth from Tynda.

How to surprise the residents, the Yunarmey decided for themselves. A large concert program was prepared in Sevastopol, a flash mob was organized in Skovorodino in honor of the Day of Russia, and an exhibition was opened in Vladikavkaz with exhibits found during search work on the battlefields of the Great Patriotic War.

“Within the framework of the action“ Watch of Memory ”we have created a mobile museum“ Battle for the Caucasus ”. The Yunarmeys went to the Elkhotovo gate, to Mayramadag, Alagir, the village of Nikolaevskaya and the village of Krasnogor. Under the guidance of experienced mentors, they carried out prospecting work, and the found exhibits added to the museum’s collection. These are binoculars, helmets, bowlers, oil cans, headgear of the German troops and their allies. For comparison, we have similar things that belonged to Soviet soldiers, “said Aslan Kaitukov, head of the UNARMIA regional headquarters in North Ossetia.

In many cities, the ceremony of joining the “UNARMIA” took place. Among them are Abakan, Vladivostok, Tomsk, Murmansk, Veliky Novgorod, Ufa. In Samara, 120 boys and girls joined the Yunarmey movement. They received badges and vowed to protect the weak, strive for academic and sports victories, and lead a healthy lifestyle.

“We go hiking, do sports, take a great interest in photography and video filming. I think that all the guys will definitely find something to their liking. And we, as the elders, will help them make their choice, ”said Natalya Khlystova, a junior soldier of the Cascade detachment.

The Ministry of Defense train, which started on April 25 from Moscow, returned to the capital on Youth Day on June 27.
