May 9, 2022

Vladimir Putin sent his congratulations to the command and staff of the 15th Alexandriyskaya Detached Guards Motor Rifle Brigade on receiving the honorary title Guards.

The message reads, in part:

“This is a high honour and recognition for your special merits, heroism and courage in defending our Fatherland, and in protecting Russia’s sovereignty and national interests.

The astute and bold actions of the unit’s personnel during the special military operation in Ukraine have become an example of fulfilling military duty, valour, dedication, and professionalism.

I know that you, soldiers and officers – guardsmen, will continue to be faithful to your oath, serve the Fatherland with honour, and reliably secure the safety and peaceful life of our citizens.”
