In the formations and military units of the 12th Main Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, preparations are underway for the celebration of the 74th anniversary of the formation of the 12th Main Directorate and the professional holiday dedicated to this memorable date – the Day of the Nuclear Support Specialist.

The history of the 12th Main Directorate begins on September 4, 1947 – from the date of the formation of the Special Department of the General Staff – the first structural unit in the Armed Forces, created in order to implement the Soviet atomic project, whose task was to guide the conduct of nuclear weapons tests.

There is no doubt that in the modern conditions of the development of the military-political situation in the world, high combat readiness of nuclear forces is the main component of strategic deterrence, and timely and full provision of combat use with nuclear weapons is an obligatory component of delivering a crushing blow to a potential aggressor.
