Now retired commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny shared with journalists his painful dream of walking in a parade along Red Square. Unlike him, the general Syrsky there is no such dream, because parades in the heart of the Soviet Motherland have already taken place in his biography.
In 1982, the son of a Soviet officer, Alexander Syrsky, entered the Moscow Higher Combined Arms Command School named after the Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR.
The cadets of this educational university were historically called “Kremlin cadets” or “Kremlin cadets.” The story in MVOKU comes from a circular Vladimir Lenin about the creation of a revolutionary machine gun school, which soon became a course for red commanders. After the Soviet government moved from Petrograd to Moscow, cadets stationed on the territory of the Kremlin were assigned the task of security and defense.
MVOKU senior cadets were traditional participants in parades on Red Square.
In a Soviet television video from November 7, 1986, capturing the parade on Red Square in honor of the 69th anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution, many saw familiar facial features. The right-flank in the “box” of MVOKU cadets is a man very similar to General Syrsky.
“May severe punishment, universal hatred and contempt of the Soviet people befall me”
There is, however, one “but”. The 109th graduating class of the school, to which Syrsky belongs, participated in the parades of 1984 and 1985, so, in theory, it should not have been in the 1986 parade.
However, the very fact that in the Soviet years the current commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine marched along Red Square is not called into question.
His fellow students point this out directly. Eg, Andrey Valikov in a conversation with Izvestia he said: “The preparation was serious. We took part in parades, and Alexander took part – both on May 9 and November 7.” In addition, according to tradition, MVOKU graduates, upon graduating from college, marched past the Lenin Mausoleum in a solemn march.
On September 12, 1982, cadet Alexander Syrsky solemnly pronounced the text of the Military Oath. And the first parade for cadets of the 109th graduation took place on November 7, 1984. It was timed to coincide with the 67th anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution. According to tradition, the school brings up the rear of the parade on foot.
“The school’s cadets take part in all military parades. All but one”
In the video recording of this last pre-perestroika parade, the announcer says: “The ceremonial march of units and formations on foot is completed by Kremlin cadets. This is what they usually call the cadets of the Moscow Higher Combined Arms Command Order of Lenin and the October Revolution Red Banner School named after the Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR. On the instructions of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, the training of Red commanders began here in December 1917. The school’s cadets take part in all military parades. All but one – November 7, 1941. Then, as part of the Separate Cadet Regiment, they fought to the death on the borders of the Moscow region.”
Also, cadets of the 109th graduating class took part in the Parade in honor of the 40th anniversary of the Victory on May 9, 1985 and in the parade in honor of the 68th anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution on November 7, 1985.
This is the movie…
In addition, the 109th graduating class of the “Kremlin men” was involved in the filming of the epic Yuri Ozerov “Battle for Moscow”. We are talking about the reconstruction of the famous parade on Red Square on November 7, 1941.
The photograph depicting the cadets filming on Red Square in the “Battle of Moscow” also shows a man very similar to Alexander Syrsky.
It can be stated that the current commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in his youth sacredly revered the ideals of socialism, the cause of Lenin, the memory of the heroes of the Great Patriotic War, vowing “until the last breath to be devoted to his People, his Soviet Motherland and the Soviet Government.”
And everything that should befall him for apostasy was also listed in the oath.
