What is the Day of the border guard in Russia. Celebration of the Border Guard Day, congratulations
Quite a lot of people do not know when the Day of the border guard in Russia, they remember that in May or June. However, this is quite an important and significant holiday for many generations of servicemen who stood guard over the borders of their homeland. Now we will consider when they began to celebrate the Day of the Border Guard, how many people celebrate it and how, in fact, the celebration takes place.
The official celebration of the Day of the frontier guard begins in 1958. But the troops carrying the service of guarding the border of the Russian state were founded in 1918 after a decree issued by the Council of People's Commissars. According to this decree, in order to improve state protection, it was necessary to strengthen the borders with a new special unit of the Border Guard, which was called the RSFSR.The border guard had such a name until 1993. Later, the President of the Russian Federation issued a decree according to which, from December 30, 1993, the RSFSR was now called the Federal Border Service of Russia. And in 1994, the President of Russia officially set a holiday - the Day of the Border Guard - to popularize and revive the traditions of the troops of the border service. So that, like many years ago, the present generations honored and respected military service and, of course, border troops.
The origins of the border service
Even in ancient Russia, there was a need to defend against nomads who raided, devastating villages. The princes, who then ruled Russia, decided to create defensive outposts that were built on the borders of their possessions. However, beginning in the second half of the 14th century, Tatars began attacking Russia from the east and southeast. Then the former defensive outposts and settlements could not withstand such powerful attacks from the enemy peoples, and it was decided to create detachments of soldiers to protect the borders.
The first decree, where the village service was described, was adopted in 1971. It set out the duties of the soldiers of the time carrying the frontier service, and the rules according to which they protected the border from uninvited guests.In 1754, in connection with trade between the countries, customs was established, which was guarded by dragoon regiments. After Catherine the second institute was established for customs guards. In 1827, the customs guard became subordinate to the department of foreign trade, and in 1893 it became an independent organization. In World War I, almost all border units became military.
How many days a border guard in a year
In all countries, without exception, which were part of the USSR, celebrate this solemn holiday. However, not all of it takes place on May 28th. Azerbaijani border guards celebrate the holiday in August, the 18th. Kazakhstani border guards celebrate their holiday in May, but on the 18th. However, the date, which is officially regulated by a state decree, clearly states that the Day of the frontier guard, the date of its solemn celebration is May 28.
Of course, no one forbids celebrating this day in other numbers, especially since for some military in terms of their service other dates could become much more significant. So you need to understand these fighters, especially if the vicissitudes of a particular date changed their whole life.And the Day of the Border Guard, of whatever date, is remembered not by the date, but by the feats that our soldiers performed.
