Pozdravlyayu! Today marks the date that the first masses were drafted into the Red Army during the Russian Civil War, 1918. The day is now celebrated in Russia as the patriotically named, ‘Defender of the Fatherland’ day.

The Russian festival still focuses around serving troops and military veterans, but it's grown into a big celebration, which provides an excuse for everyone to have a party. Traditionally, women give presents and cards to Russian men, and there are parades organised to honour the military. Pour a Russian Qualuude Shot tonight for Russia. Na zdorovje!
