More than 2,200 servicemen of the Baltic Fleet and cadets of the branch of the VUNC of the Navy in Kaliningrad took part in the large-scale educational campaign “Geographical dictation”.

Taking into account the epidemic situation in the places where the fleet is based, the action sites were organized directly in units, formations, ships, as well as in the branch of the All-Russian Scientific Center of the Navy “Naval Academy” (Kaliningrad).

In the Kaliningrad and Leningrad regions, 34 sites were specially prepared, equipped and pre-disinfected for this, where military personnel and civilian personnel of military units wearing personal protective equipment answered the dictation questions.

The main site was the Museum of Military Glory of the Motorized Rifle Regiment of the Baltic Fleet in Kaliningrad. In one of the halls of the museum, the dictation was written by the commander of the Baltic Fleet, Vice-Admiral Viktor Liina, his deputies, and the command of the regiment.

The Geographical Dictation was attended by military personnel, civilian personnel of military units and formations of the Baltic and Leningrad naval bases, as well as the army corps of the Baltic Fleet.

Participants of the action solved tests on the geographical location of cities and regions, large lakes and rivers, climatic zones and mountain peaks, volcanoes of Russia and many others.

The geographic dictation has been carried out by the Russian Geographical Society on the initiative of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, annually since 2015. Its main goal is to popularize geographical knowledge and increase interest in the geography of Russia among the population.

Writing a dictation at all sites was organized taking into account measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection.
