In the Saratov region, on the territory of the Patriot Military-Patriotic Park of Arms and Military Equipment in the city of Engels, a solemn meeting dedicated to the Day of the Tankman was held.

Veterans of the Great Patriotic War, Yunarmeytsy, representatives of the administration of the Engels municipal district, as well as servicemen of the Engels long-range aviation formation were invited as guests of honor and participants.

The creative teams of the Engels garrison, together with representatives of the “Combat Brotherhood”, sang patriotic songs.

The protesters laid wreaths and flowers at the busts of the heroes and pedestals with military equipment.

“On this day, we congratulate the veterans and servicemen of the tank forces, as well as everyone who is working on the creation of formidable combat vehicles. During the Great Patriotic War, Saratov tank schools performed tasks for training personnel for armored forces, having made 50 issues during their existence, having trained more than 12 thousand commanders and tank technicians. We associate the names of many of them with the Battle of Kursk, where tank troops played a special role in the victory over the enemy. The successors of the glorious traditions of the tank forces were tankers who participated in local wars and military conflicts in recent years. The front-line soldiers were an example for them, ”Captain Alexander Ignatiev, acting deputy commander of the formation for military-political work of the Guard, said during his speech.

At the end of the event, representatives of the church held a prayer service, as well as the consecration of the memorial complex.
