July 12, 2022

Vladimir Putin sent greetings to the command and personnel of the 2nd Detached Guards Special Operations Brigade on being awarded the honorary Guards title.

The message reads, in part:

“This is a high honour and acknowledgement of your special merits, mass heroism and the courage shown as you defended the Fatherland and stood up for the sovereignty and state interests of Russia.

The skilful and resolute actions of the brigade’s personnel during the special military operation in Ukraine are an example of military duty, courage, dedication and high professionalism.

I am certain that you, the Guards unit’s soldiers and officers will continue to be true to your oath and serve the Motherland with honour, and reliably ensure security and a peaceful life for our citizens.”
