Ukraine's air­borne troops hold ma­neu­vers to mark pro­fes­sional day

Kyiv Post - - Business -

The Ukrainian army's elite 95th Air As­sault Bri­gade con­ducted full-scale drills with bat­tle­field gun­nery and para­chute air­drops at a fir­ing range in Zhy­to­myr Oblast to mark the pro­fes­sional day of Ukraine's air­borne troops on Nov. 21. The air­borne forces of Ukraine started cel­e­brat­ing their hol­i­day on this date in 2017, chang­ing from the tra­di­tional Soviet-era date of Aug. 2, which is still the day of the hol­i­day in Rus­sia.
