This year we will celebrate the 76th anniversary of the heroic defense of Tula. Much credit for the fact that the Nazi troops failed to capture the arms capital belongs to the Tula workers' regiment.|
There were almost no military professionals in it - the backbone was made up of peaceful people who did not have serious army experience: from yesterday's schoolchildren to old people. Nevertheless, the militias were able to repulse the numerous attacks of the Wehrmacht soldiers, confident that Tula would fall just as quickly as Minsk, Kiev, Bryansk, Orel ... But the Nazis miscalculated.
The feat of the Tula workers' regiment in the arms capital is not forgotten: a street is named after him, documentary books and films are published about him. And in the spring of last year, at the walls of the Tula Kremlin, a monument appeared to employees of the state security agencies, partisans, soldiers of reconnaissance and sabotage groups and fighter battalions who participated in the heroic defense of Tula in the fall - winter of 1941.
It serves as a reminder: Tula are peaceful people, but if the Motherland is in danger, both young and old will stand up to defend it. So it was and so it will be.
