With the assistance of the command of the Primorsk combined-arms army of the Eastern Military District, schoolchildren and youth soldiers from Khabarovsk visited the headquarters and motorized rifle unit of the combined-arms formation stationed in Ussuriisk.

About 100 young soldiers and schoolchildren of grades 6-11 arrived by bus from Khabarovsk, as part of a military-patriotic action dedicated to the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War.

During the event, the students got acquainted with the historical exposition located on the “Walk of Fame” of the headquarters of the Primorsky Combined Arms Army of the Air Defense Forces. We touched weapons and military equipment of the times of the Great Patriotic War, as well as modern models of combat vehicles in service with the Red Banner association. The children visited the memorial complex located on the territory of the army headquarters. In addition, an excursion was conducted with the pupils in a motorized rifle unit. The head of the military-political department, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Borisovich Gorban, answered all the questions of the schoolchildren.

After the victory over Nazi Germany in 1945, the Primorsky combined-arms army of the Air Defense Forces was transferred to the Far Eastern borders of the Soviet Union to fight Hitler’s ally, militaristic Japan. The unification played a key role in the Manchurian offensive, defeating the enemy in the largest battle for the city of Mudanjiang.
