Greetings to commanders and personnel of 17th Guards Army Aviation Brigade

July 12, 2022

Vladimir Putin sent greetings to commanders and personnel of the 17th Guards Army Aviation Brigade on receiving the honorary title of Guards.

The message reads, in part:

“This is a great honour and recognition of your special merits, mass heroism and valour demonstrated while defending the Fatherland and upholding the sovereignty of Russia and its national interests.

The skilful and resolute actions of the unit’s personnel during the special military operation in Ukraine are an example of fulfilling military duty, of bravery, selflessness and high professionalism.

I am convinced that the Guards unit’s officers and soldiers will remain loyal to their Oath of Allegiance, will honourably serve the Motherland and reliably ensure safety, security and a peaceful life for Russian citizens.”
