  • February, 23 - Great Russian Holiday

    February, 23 - one of Greatest Russian Holidays.

    In USSR it was "Day of Soviet Army and Navy", in modern Russia it is "Day of Fatherland defender". It means "men's day".

    It is from February, 23 of 1918, when Red Army stopped German advance in Pskov and Narva, it was official "birthday" of Red Army (It was false but holiday is holiday, it is tradition now.)
