In the Ulan-Ude Separate Guards Air Assault Formation, a solemn ritual of taking the Military oath by young recruits took place. The words of the oath of allegiance to the Motherland were uttered by about 100 guards-paratroopers.

The ceremony traditionally began with the formation of the personnel of the Airborne Troops formation and the removal of the unit’s Battle Banner.

“By taking the oath, each guardsman – paratrooper, assumes an honorable and responsible duty to preserve and protect the peace of his Motherland, his relatives and friends,” said colonel Denis Shishov, commander of the military unit of the guard, in his parting word.

From the moment they entered the guards formation of the Airborne Forces and until the moment they took the oath, the recruits underwent mandatory combined arms training. Guardsmen-paratroopers studied the charters and duties of military personnel, worked out techniques for drill and physical training, studied the tactical and technical characteristics of weapons, got acquainted with the history and combat traditions of the air assault unit.

At the end of the event, young soldiers and personnel of the formation marched in a solemn march, demonstrating drill skills and coherence in the unit.
