Today, the Day of the Airborne Troops, DNR Chairman of the Government A V Zakharchenko said that the “Winged infantry” showed unprecedented courage and steadfastness in the Donbass fighting, proving themselves the backbone of the patriot forces, saying, “Today, our paratroops form the backbone of the valiant Donbass patriot forces, of the Republican Guard, and of our officer corps. At this difficult time, when the enemy invaded our land, you proved faithful to your military duty and motherland, being a true exemplar of the courage and fighting spirit of our forces. Paratroops took part in the defence of Donetsk and Gorlovka, they liberated Saur-Mogila, and they surrounded the enemy in the Ilovaisk/Debaltsevo pocket… you proved that so-called impossible tasks were normal. You’re always on guard for your motherland… and victory is your constant companion. I wish you good health, happiness, success in battle, and a tranquil civil life”. The Soviet Airborne Forces formed up on 2 August 1930 in the Moscow Military District near Voronezh. Thus, 2 August is the Day of the Airborne Troops.

The DNR Minoborony praised the combat readiness of the troops that engaged in recent battlefield simulation training, saying, “The Minoborony command staff noted the high level of combat readiness of the units involved. The simulation exercises were successful”. The exercises took place on 28 July without any advance notice for security reasons. In particular, they involved artillery, engineering, communication, and NBC* Defence units. In addition, the review involved medical and logistic support units. Our source pointed up that AFV crews attended exercises on combat radio use, including the use of floating frequencies [to avoid countermeasures], noting, “We worked out scenarios involving communications and organisation of continuous command and control issues in real-time using advanced automated control systems. Our troops showed competence in field maintenance of AFVs, artillery, and air defence systems, whilst our medical personnel practised care under battlefield conditions. We need such training to improve the combat readiness of our troops. They contribute to improving the army’s operational effectiveness”.

  • NBC: Nuclear Biological Chemical, usually used to denote countermeasures and decontamination
