The Krasnodar regional branch of DOSAAF continues the implementation of the patriotic program “Fire Landing”, dedicated to the legendary sabotage airborne operation of the Black Sea sailors at the airfield of Maikop occupied by the Nazis, carried out on October 24, 1942.

Within the framework of this regional project, educational, training and practical classes in airborne parachuting for pre-conscription youth took place last year. 50 pupils of the military-patriotic clubs of Kuban and Adygea underwent ground training and performed the first parachute jump at the Enem airfield of DOSAAF.

In January of this year, a new stage of the project was launched – holding thematic educational events in educational institutions and training sessions on bullet shooting for schoolchildren in Krasnodar on the basis of the regional shooting and sports club DOSAAF.

Recently, the first meeting was held with students of 6-8 grades of gymnasium No. 25 of the regional capital, dedicated to the 95th anniversary of the defense society. Deputy Chairman of the regional branch of DOSAAF Alexander Shepelev held a “Lesson of Courage” for the children, spoke about the history of the organization and the project. The children were presented with the documentary film “Fiery landing”, all participants were given information booklets.

Thirty high school students will soon take introductory training sessions on bullet shooting at the DOSAAF shooting range and will perform practical shooting from a small-caliber rifle.

It is planned that by mid-March there will be 11 thematic meetings with schoolchildren and the same number of classes in the shooting club. More than one thousand Krasnodar schoolchildren will take part in these events.
