In St. Petersburg, at the headquarters of the S.M. Kirov, a solemn ceremony of dedication of students of school № 197 to the ranks of the Yunarmey movement took place. The guys got into a special task force, medical, and now they will learn to provide first aid.

“I wish you to become real defenders of the Fatherland. I am sure you will receive the necessary first aid skills and knowledge of how to act in emergencies. I wish you creative victories and success in your studies, ”the head of the academy, Major General of the Medical Service Yevgeny Kryukov, addressed the Yunarmeys.

The deputy head of the academy for military-political work, colonel of the medical service, Vladimir Lyutov, expressed the hope that this event will be decisive for the children in choosing their future profession, because most of them dream of studying to be doctors. The guys took a solemn oath, after which they were handed a badge and a book of the Young Army soldier.

“This is a historic event for our Movement. The first medical detachment appeared in the Youth Army. It is very important that the guys have chosen this path for themselves. They are ready to provide assistance and heal. They feel this calling from an early age. Doctor is a demanded profession. Now we see how they are fighting for the lives of people, risking themselves. The desire to be doctors is commendable, and I am proud that among the Young Army men there are such purposeful, courageous and selfless children, ”said Nikita Nagorny, Chief of the General Staff of the Youth Army, three-time world champion, eight-time European champion, Olympic silver medalist.

It is worth noting that medical assistance courses are very popular among the Yunarmeys. EMERCOM employees conduct such classes in many detachments throughout the country. The guys learn the basics of first aid, in the future this allows them to adequately respond to any incidents, accidents and emergencies. Movement activists study the history of medicine, disease prevention and much more.

And in November 2020, the members of the Movement launched a new project aimed at preventing coronavirus infection. “Youth Army Against COVID 1” is a series of videos with the participation of juniors and a unique practical guide developed in cooperation with the Russian Red Cross. The peculiarity of the project is that the children urge their peers to observe preventive measures and show how to reduce the risk of the disease. For almost a year, the initiative has been successfully implemented throughout the country.

For reference:

All-Russian youth military-patriotic movement Yunarmiya was created in 2016 at the initiative of the Ministry of Defense and with the support of the President of Russia. Now there are more than 800 thousand in its ranks. The main task of the movement is patriotic education, as well as the physical, intellectual and social development of young people.
