Editor’s note:  Excuse the language challenge. Gene was having one of those days.

Marines Day in Russia

Marines Day is celebrated in Russia annually on November 27.

This is one of the numerous Russian military professional days, that is celebrated on the official level since 1996.
Unlike many other professional days, Marines Days wasn’t established by President of the Russian Federation.
The date of celebration was chosen to commemorate the date, when Peter the Great issued a decree on creation of the first marines regiment in 1705.
The Russian Marines is the amphibious force of the Russian Navy.

It participated in number of wars, that Russia fought since 1705, including Napoleonic Wars, Crimean War, the Russo-Japanese War, World War I and World War II.

Министерство обороны России опубликовало в официальном аккаунте в YouTube видео к 311-й годовщине со дня создания регулярной морской пехоты Военно-морского флота (ВМФ) России.
