The Russian armed forces are uniquely placed to tackle tasks of particular importance and complexity, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in his congratulations on Special Operations Forces Day.
“Today we can say with good reason that Russia, our armed forces have unique opportunities for solving problems of particular importance and complexity,” the head of state said.
He noted that the Armed Forces have “hardened, experienced fighters” who are ready “to act in a non-standard situation anywhere in the world, if the interests of the Motherland and its security require it.”
According to him, the servicemen have repeatedly proved this, “when they won” not by numbers, but by skill, “struck devastating blows at terrorists, risked themselves to protect civilians.”
Earlier, in his congratulations on Defender of the Fatherland Day, Putin noted that the country’s army and navy are ready to respond to complex challenges, acting effectively and decisively.
