On Airborne Troops Day, we congratulate all Ukrainian paratroopers.
Every year on November 21, Ukraine celebrates the Day of the Airborne Assault Forces (ASF). This is a very important type of troops, which is in close proximity to the enemies and helps to conduct offensive operations. On the Day of Airborne Forces in Ukraine, congratulate the relatives and friends of the paratroopers. Archangel Michael is considered the church patron of the Ukrainian landing force – you can pray to him for the protection of our soldiers.
DShV Day of the Ukrainian Armed Forces – history of the holiday
Until 2012, these troops were called Airmobile, and from 2012 to 2017 they were called Highly Mobile Airborne Forces (VDV), as in Russia. In 2017, the command carried out a rebranding – the troops were given their current name and a professional holiday was appointed.
It was decided to celebrate Airborne Troops Day in Ukraine on November 21 on the Day of the Archangel Michael, who is considered the head of the heavenly army and the patron saint of Kyiv. In 2023, the church switched to a new church calendar, and Archangel Michael is now honored on November 8th. But there was no announcement about the postponement of the date of the DShV day.
Ukrainian paratroopers have burgundy berets, and their motto is: “First things first!” Paratroopers are often called raccoons – perhaps because these animals are smart, hardy and operate at night, like paratroopers. That is why the DShV warriors chose such a symbol for themselves.
What do Ukrainian air assault troops do?
Airborne assault troops are engaged in the following tasks:
- capturing and holding key objects behind enemy lines during parachute operations;
- coverage of enemy forces;
- support of offensive operations and quick cover;
- creating a bridgehead behind enemy lines;
- assault and capture of buildings;
- blocking and destroying enemy troops;
- performing special operations such as freeing hostages, eliminating enemy leaders, etc.;
- sabotage missions;
- and much more.
Airborne units have high mobility and are able to move quickly, providing flexibility and efficiency in operations in the theater of operations.
