MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In the branch of the VUNC VVS “VVA named after professor N.Ye. Zhukovsky and Yu.A. Gagarin ”in Syzran, more than 1,500 participants gathered to write a geographical dictation. In the club of the branch, the assembly hall of the educational and methodological building, lecture halls, divisions, clubs of educational aviation bases (Syzran, the village of Sokolovy), their knowledge in the field of geography was checked by the management of the branch, the teaching staff, cadets, conscripts , civilian personnel and family members of military personnel. The writing of the dictation at all sites was organized under the leadership of the head of the branch, Major General A.A. Asanov. and the deputy head of the branch for military-political work, Colonel Brukov D.Yu. subject to quarantine requirements.
The participants of the event solved tests on the geographical location of cities and regions, large lakes and rivers, climatic zones and mountain peaks and volcanoes of Russia and many others. The quiz was not easy, and after its completion, when interviewing the personnel, we found out that the participants liked the question about the river metro-bridge, the design of which has special rollers that allow you to change its length. Few could answer that such a unique bridge was built in Novosibirsk and its complex structure is due to the significant temperature difference in the Central Siberian region.
Having tested their knowledge, the servicemen of the branch will be able to assess how well they remember the history and geography of the country, to understand in which topics the necessary knowledge is missing and to replenish it, to share interesting facts with comrades. In any case, it is always exciting, because how can you learn something new for yourself.
All participants will be able to find out their own results of the dictation by the numbers of the forms they filled out after December 1, 2021, when they will be published on the website of the Russian Geographical Society.
