MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –

Over 200 servicemen of the Preobrazhensky Separate Commandant Regiment of the Western Military District were sworn in in Moscow.

Due to the epidemiological situation in the region, the solemn event was held on the territory of the military unit, without the presence of relatives and friends.

The ritual of being sworn into the Military Oath began with the removal of the Regiment’s Battle Banner and the State Flag of the Russian Federation. Taking turns out of action, the recruits read out an oath of allegiance to the Fatherland. At the end of the ritual, the recruits sang the Anthem of the Russian Federation. Then the servicemen of the Guard of Honor battalion demonstrated their professional skills in drill and weapon handling.

A separate commandant Preobrazhensky regiment performs the tasks of ensuring solemn events with the participation of the President of Russia, the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, conducts rituals of meeting and seeing off the heads of foreign state, government and military delegations during official visits to Russia.

Also, servicemen of the Guard of Honor battalion conduct wreath-laying rituals at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier near the Kremlin wall. The National Flag of the Russian Federation and the Victory Banner are carried out at the parade dedicated to the Victory Day in the Great Patriotic War.
