In Russia, the GRU (Main intelligence Directorate) is the only intelligence Agency that conducts space exploration, using the orbital group of satellites. The officers know that their service they strengthen the greatness of the homeland, so the words duty, honor and conscience for them not pustoi sound. Here is still a valuable tradition of loyalty to Russia and to the people.
On this day, November 5, the holiday is celebrated in Russia on those who guard its interests. Military intelligence of our country is one of the most effective and private intelligence services in the world. Information received by military intelligence, has become the basis for accepting the Supreme leadership solutions to ensure the security of the country.
Their indispensability and efficiency she showed during crisis situations in Afghanistan, Iraq, Chechnya, Abkhazia. More than 700 military intelligence have the highest awards and titles of the Characters.
Military intelligence and now remains the most closed special structure, it does not have its press service.
Why did you choose this date?
According to the decision of the Ministry of defence for military intelligence, established on 5 November a holiday. In Russia, congratulations to accept all those who serve in the intelligence units. The occasion is intended to emphasize the importance of merit of the knights shield and sword, and aimed at strengthening their fighting spirit. The day of remembrance of the scouts, those who courageously bore the burden of service during wars and in peacetime, scheduled for 5 November. Festival in Russia (2015) will mark only the 15th time since it was first celebrated in 2000. The calendar of the national holidays, it is not output.
Today is the 5th of November holiday in Russia! Because this date is considered the birthday of military intelligence. In 1918 Leon Trotsky, as Chairman of the revolutionary military Council of the USSR, ordered the organization of management, which handled distribution network of agents. From this time begins the story of a modern complex of military intelligence.
What is intelligence?
In the Russian Armed forces have separate platoons, companies, battalions — a military intelligence, it was part of the military. In turn, military intelligence is in the structure of the General staff. If the General staff — "brain of the army", intelligence is "eyes and ears", it collects information. Defense is a sphere of activity, which is carefully concealed. All data about the enemy, his intentions and plans, funds and forces to get. And often this was done on the limit and the cost of his life.
It can be argued that the military profession is scout shrouded in romance and is considered one of the most respected professions in the Army. And piety is not dependent on whether an ordinary soldier who goes behind enemy lines for "language", or Colonel, serving "under cover" in a distant country. Both admired.
When did the intelligence?
Nov 5 holiday in Russia, but exploration not 97 years, since it was not formed in a vacuum. The first special intelligence authority has been established in 1810, he prepared a lot of specialists for the Russian army on the eve of world war II. But this body is only a stage in the history of exploration. So, at the beginning of the XIX century in the French occupied territories of different countries quietly scurried Russian scouts, and in Paris, worked by Colonel Alexander Chernyshev, who even managed to become a favorite of Napoleon.
Also in the middle of the XVIII century against intelligence work in Turkey and Prussia were engaged in the offices of the General staff and quartermaster. And the Great Peter the great gave the of reconnaissance missions his officers going abroad. In General, it can be argued that military intelligence was created at one time with the army.
But I could not do without it. If I wasn't prepared to Russia to raids poles, Lithuanians, Tatars and other enemy troops, the rulers would not be able to respond, to reflect the impact of the enemy, and the government would be wiped off the face of the earth. Therefore, it is necessary scout day November 5 — holiday in Russia.
Church order and nameless heroes
The interests of the Church and state structures are largely United. His Holiness the Patriarch awarded Church order of the chief scout of Russia S. N. Lebedev's contribution to the development of Church-state relations. Awards were also awarded to the head of the FSB N. Patrushev.
History, unfortunately, has not preserved the names of the first scouts who conscientiously served their country. But just as we don't know the names of their contemporaries, the Russian scouts. Their exploits go unnoticed to the uninitiated, so this is the specificity of work, those who put the interests of the Fatherland above their own. Writers called them "people of the silent exploits", but here is probably the most suitable the word "default" because this action is dictated by the interests of the case, which the scouts serve selflessly and faithfully. No wonder in the song "While living intelligence, not lost the country."
