Servicemen of the special forces of the Central Military District organized a solemn reception for veterans of special forces, showing them modern equipment and weapons.

In the river port near Samara, the veterans were greeted with bread and salt, accompanied by a military orchestra. After that, the delegation arrived at the point of permanent deployment of the compound, where they were introduced to the modern technology, equipment and weapons of the special forces. The participants of the event laid wreaths and flowers at the memorial to the fallen special forces soldiers, honoring their memory with a minute of silence.
