On November 27, Russia celebrates the Naval Infantry’s Day. Events are held in the brigades of the country’s Pacific, Northern, Baltic and Black Sea fleets, as well as in two battalions of the Caspian flotilla, individual squadrons and subunits. Take a look at the everyday life of these Russian servicemen in black berets down below.
The Day of the Russian Naval Infantry was officially established in December 1995. It is a relatively young holiday, despite the fact that the country’s Marines date back more than three centuries. According to historians, the first “regiment of naval soldiers” was created in the Russian Empire in 1705 by Tsar Peter the Great.
These days, the “black berets,” whose motto is “The victory is where we are!”, serve on the ships of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean, as well as on ships of the Northern and Pacific Fleets performing their tasks in different areas of the World Ocean.
