In Russia’s big cities and small villages stand monuments to fallen internationalist warriors. By accepting death in a foreign land, they returned home as symbols of loyalty to military duty…Many of the grown-up children and grandchildren of these internationalist-warriors have donned military uniforms, proving that the succession of generations is not an empty sound.
Some are in Syria today defending the world and our country from international terrorists who call for all of humanity to be killed.
13 soldiers and officers have returned from Syrian missions in advance, having fallen in battle against ISIS. But they did not fall into obscurity nor have they been abandoned. The Homeland remembers them and grieves for them.
he country will remember its heroes, be proud of them, and mourn that they are no longer with us. But we can rest assured knowing that their children will come to take the place of those who never returned from battle. Don’t mind the lamentations about “spoiled youth” and “lack of patriotism.” The Russian people, as alway, gives birth to and grows guys who are ready to lay down their lives for the Homeland….Real heroes.
Russia can be confident that as long as the younger generation continues to honor the military traditions of their fathers and grandfathers, our Homeland will fear no enemy.
