MOSCOW, August 2. /TASS/. President Vladimir Putin congratulated Russia’s paratroops and its veterans in honor of Airborne Troops Day, the Kremlin’s press service announced.
"The history of ‘winged infantry’ was written by people with great courage and high morale - those who are prepared to withstand the most difficult tests, cope with the most complex tasks, and who strictly obey the code of an unbreakable military brotherhood. Those who place commitment to their homeland and duty above all else," Putin declared.
"It is vital that the current generation of paratroops honors their predecessors’ patriotic and combat traditions and lives up to the legendary motto of the airborne troops, ‘Nobody but us!’ the president stated.
"You will never fail and always firmly protect the national interests and security of our state," Putin proclaimed.
