All-army festival-contest “Army of Russia” is held annually at the initiative of defense Minister Sergei Shoigu with the aim of improving professionalism and morale in the Armed forces and development of the best military traditions.

The first Minister of defence awarded the cadet of the Voronezh military training-scientific centre of air force Likhachev Artem for courage and honor, manifested in rescuing children from a burning house. In January of this year, Artem, risking their lives, pulled from a burning house in Voronezh two children four and six years. “We have hundreds and thousands of such boys,” said the Minister, presenting the award — which in different parts of our country abroad perform feats not because they want to do them, but because they cannot do otherwise.”

The finale of “Army-2016” by the decision of the jury selected the winners in such nominations as “Courage and honor” (heroic) “Armor is strong” (best tank crew), “ACE” (best flight crew), Eagle eye (the best estimate of complex unmanned aerial vehicle), and others. Winners were congratulated via video link (picture was shown on the big screen) the soldiers from the island of Kotelny and Syrian air base Hamim. The most worthy representatives of the military profession have been awarded the highest ranks of the defense Ministry, popular artists, athletes, and public figures. The celebration ended with the concert of famous musicians.
