The message reads, in part:
“This is a high honour and recognition of your meritorious service, heroism and courage displayed in defending the Fatherland and upholding the sovereignty and national interests of our country.
You can be rightly proud of the regiment’s history and legendary traditions. The personnel in your military unit have invariably displayed fortitude and courage, resolve and strength of spirit, demonstrating great examples of fulfilling your martial duty in the most difficult areas like the struggle against terrorism in Syria and during the special military operation in Ukraine.
I know that you – Guards soldiers and officers – will continue to be faithful to the Oath, and will selflessly and honourably serve tour Motherland, reliably protecting the security and peaceful life of Russian citizens.”
