Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the Airborne Forces (Airborne Forces) are ready to tackle tasks of any complexity in any situation.

“Today the Airborne Forces is the operational-strategic reserve of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Federation. This is a highly mobile branch of the military, without which the defense of our vast country is impossible. These are units equipped with the latest weapons and equipment, capable of performing tasks of any complexity and in any situation. I am sure it will continue to be so, “Shoigu said on Saturday, speaking at the celebrations in connection with the upcoming Airborne Forces Day.

A military sports festival dedicated to the 91st anniversary of the formation of the Airborne Forces is being held in the Alabino near Moscow on the Mound of Glory.

According to the minister, the personnel of the Airborne Forces demonstrates impeccable combat skill, unshakable fortitude and the ability to achieve the solution of assigned tasks at all costs.

“At all times, the warriors of the winged infantry were entrusted with the most difficult and responsible tasks, with which they invariably coped accurately, efficiently and smoothly. The impeccable training, courage and unbending will of the paratroopers have always become an insurmountable obstacle on the way of the enemy, ”Shoigu said.

He noted the unparalleled courage, heroism and dedication that officers, sergeants and airborne soldiers showed in the battles and battles of the Great Patriotic War.

“It is no coincidence that all divisions of the Airborne Forces were given the honorary title of Guards,” the Minister of Defense emphasized.

“Fulfillment of the international duty in Afghanistan, the fight against international terrorism in the North Caucasus, the conduct of peacekeeping operations – it would have been impossible to solve these complex tasks without the feat of the paratroopers,” Shoigu said.

He expressed his sincere gratitude to the veterans of the Airborne Forces.

“It is difficult to overestimate your contribution to strengthening the country’s defense capability and protecting national interests. You are those who formed the traditions of the indestructible airborne brotherhood, those whose glory thunders in Russia and far beyond its borders, those whom the whole country has been deservedly proud of for decades. Now you are passing on your invaluable experience to the youth – to the current generation of guardsmen who continue your glorious deeds with dignity, ”Shoigu said.

Congratulating the paratroopers on the holiday, he wished them good health, peace and prosperity.

Day of the Airborne Forces will be celebrated on August 2.
