This year we will celebrate the 78th anniversary of the heroic defense of Tula. Considerable merit in 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 the elderly. Nevertheless, the militias were able to repel numerous attacks by 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
