The Yunarmeys of the Primorsky Territory gathered in a thematic camp at the DOSAAF base. Three dozen boys and girls from 34 municipalities of the region will have to master the basics of airborne training.

“The program includes 40 hours of classes. And then each of the children aged 14 to 17 will make one jump. During this summer we plan to hold three specialized shifts, now the second is in full swing, in which 16 boys and 14 girls are actively and usefully resting. Yes, imagine, girls are in great demand for airborne training, ”said Mikhail Lyubetsky, Chief of Staff of the Youth Army in the Primorsky Territory.

In addition to parachute theory and practice, the Yunarmeys also receive general military training: tactical and combat training. They live according to the daily routine: in the morning – classes in NBC, lunch – on the provision of first aid. Do not forget about the rest, although it is a youth army, it is still summer. Therefore, the menu includes excursions and meetings with interesting people. For example, the ombudsman for the rights of the child in the Primorsky Territory, the chairman of the Primorsky regional branch of the Russian Military Historical Society, veterans of the Airborne Forces have already talked with the activists of the Youth Army.

“It is worth noting the approach to the learning process. The regional headquarters of the Youth Army, which initiated the shift, approached the work with knowledge of the matter. Classes are taught by experienced instructors. Moreover, not only in parachute training – after all, our task is to show the children the diverse and interesting world of adult professions. So that, having learned about each, they could decide on their own future. One of the most important points in terms of educational work, I think, is that children are introduced to the stories of the heroes of our time. For example, during the field trip, the teenagers were told about the courage of the Russian military pilot Roman Filippov, as well as about the bravery of FSB Lieutenant Colonel Roman Kliz, who died in the line of duty, “said the chief of the General Staff of the Youth Army, three-time world champion, eight-time European champion, Olympic silver medalist. games Nikita Nagorny.

The guys will perform their first jump in weightlessness at an altitude of 700 meters. And he is just around the corner. Now it is important on the ground to work out all the movements to automatism, so that later everything can be done correctly in the air.

All camp participants will receive certificates of completion of training at the DOSAAF base, and, of course, a badge, as well as a parachutist’s certificate with the coveted mark. Next year, the organizers of the shift plan to expand the number of young participants to fifty. And instead of three, to organize seven profile races of the “Yunarmeysky landing”.

Recall that the 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 participants in its ranks.
