Servicemen of the combined arms association of the Central Military District (CVD) fulfilled the dream of children from the large family of Sergeant Maxim Samukin from Novosibirsk, who took part in the “Christmas tree of desires” action.

The guys Anastasia, Varvara, Ivan and Denis wrote a letter to Santa Claus that they dream of visiting a military unit and riding a real battle tank.

The symbolic snowflake with the children’s dream was removed from the “tree of desires” installed in the House of Officers of the Novosibirsk garrison by the acting commander of the Central Military District, Major General Andrei Sukhovetsky.

By the decision of the acting commander, the children were invited to the motorized rifle unit and were given the opportunity to see military equipment and ride a T-72 tank and an infantry fighting vehicle.

The children were told about the tactical and technical characteristics of the T-72 tank and the equipment of a modern tanker, as well as the characteristics of the BMP. After that, they were able to ride a tank around the range and feel like real military men, like their dad.

At the end of the event, the children were presented with sweet gifts from Santa Claus.
