On August 2, 1930 near Voronezh a parachute subdivision of 12 men landed in the fields and this started a new tradition of the Soviet and then Russian army. This date is the professional holiday of paratroopers and is celebrated for
already 79 years. Over this period landing troops took part in all armed conflicts of the former USSR. Nowadays these troops are believed to be the elite of the army. The motto of the Blue berets “Nobody but us”.
