In the Moscow region, at the Alabino training ground, the command of the Western Military District fulfilled the dream of the boy Yegor Fomenko from the Voronezh region, who turned to the President of the Russian Federation as part of the All-Russian action “Christmas tree of desires” with a request to ride a T-90 tank.

And now the dream became a reality. At the Alabino ZVO military training ground, the young tanker was met by the commander of the Guards Tank Army, Lieutenant General Sergei Kisel and, before riding a T-90 tank, made a short presentation for Yegor. The commander spoke about the tactical and technical characteristics of the combat vehicle and the equipment of a modern tanker.

Then Lieutenant General Sergei Kisel suggested that Yegor take the place of the tank commander and, under the command of the young tanker, personally gave him a ride on the tank biathlon track.

After that, Yegor Fomenko was introduced to the weapons and military equipment of the Taman motorized rifle division, where the main samples of military equipment in service with the Western Military District were presented. After that, the boy was shown regular shooting from the armament of T-72B3 tanks.

The tour of the Alabino training ground ended with a tea party with the command of the tank army, where Yegor was handed a sweet gift from Santa Claus, a model of a tank in service with the army and a tank helmet.

Yegor Fomenko addressed the commanders of the tank and combined arms army with the words: “Thank you for the New Year’s gift and the fulfillment of your dream!”
