A youth army detachment has appeared in the Moscow region, which will preserve the historical memory of the Moscow battle, which died down almost 80 years ago. The agreement on the creation of the detachment was signed by Igor Korneev, Director of the Borodinskoye Pole Museum-Reserve, and Valentin Batievsky, Chief of the Youth Army Headquarters of the Western Administrative District of the capital. The fact is that the Mozhaisk line of defense runs through the territory of the Borodino Field Museum-Reserve, where bloody battles took place during the Great Patriotic War.

“In the very heart of the Borodino field – where in 1812 the heroic battery of Raevsky was located, in 1941 there was one of the pillboxes, in which the soldiers of the 133rd artillery regiment held the defense. Only the gunner survived, he lost his right arm, but managed to knock out a fascist tank with his left arm, “said Igor Korneev, director of the Borodino Field Museum-Reserve.

Despite the fact that the enemy broke through the Mozhaisk line of defense, its defenders fought for life and death and were able to restrain the onslaught of the Wehrmacht towards Moscow, allowing the High Command to gain time by concentrating reserves in the area of ​​the capital and organizing defense on the approaches to Moscow …

The backbone of the new Yunarmiya detachment is made up of children from school No. 1400 in Moscow, participants in the Hourly Stories project. They plan to carefully study the events of the Great Patriotic War, and especially those moments that relate to the Moscow battle, establish the names and write biographies of the participants in the bloody battles, find the burial places of those who gave their lives and did not return from the front.

“We are studying materials related to the construction of the Mozhaisk defense line. It amazes me that all the work was carried out under enemy air strikes. But people did not give up, they performed a feat every day, – says Elizaveta Belyaeva, an activist of the Youth Army. – We have a big country. History shows that many have tried to seize our lands. In 1941, the enemy came very close to Moscow. It was decided to build a strip about 200 kilometers long. Additional fortifications were also designed. The enemy ran into one lane, then another, and thus was exhausted, losing his strength. “

The Borodino detachment was created within the framework of the patriotic project “Victory Trail”, dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Moscow. It involves the implementation of 5 basic educational modules: museums, exploration, safety fundamentals, mining training and medical practice. The theoretical part of the course takes place in a distance format, and the lessons are worked out on the basis of educational organizations. The result of the implementation of the module will be a presentation by the youth army detachments that will take part in the project, the final work in each area of ​​activity.

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 in its ranks there are almost 850 thousand participants – the most daring, the most courageous, the most initiative guys. The main task of the movement is patriotic education, as well as the physical, intellectual and social development of young people.
