С День Красной Армии!

On February 23rd 1918 the Red Army was founded and immediately began combating the forces of the Imperialist German Army and the Counter Revolutionary Whites. The Red Army distinguished itself in battle and proved able to answer Lenin’s call to battle and save the young Soviet Republic!

Great credit to organizing the Army is to be given to Leon Trotsky, who is unfortunately not given his due credit in Soviet History.

 “To prepare a revolutionary army not with phrases and exclamations, but with organizational work, deed, building up a serious, popular, powerful army.” 

Lenin

This is the congratulations of the General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Gennady Zyyganov on the Defender of the Father Land Day to the Russian People, which is what the day was renamed to after the collapse of the USSR.

Vladimir Lenin’s “The Socialist Fatherland is in danger” the call to arms to form the Red Army.

Russian and Soviet history has been an avid passion of mine since I was ten.

Ever since then, I have been independently studying Russian history, culture, and language for years.
