The Honor Guard of the of the Presidential Regiment of the Service of Moscow Kremlin’s Commandant of the Federal Guard Service of the Russian Federation

Captain Andrey Petukhov, Commander of the Honor Guard.

The Honor Guard of the of the Presidential Regiment of the Service of Moscow Kremlin’s Commandant of the Federal Guard Service of the Russian Federation was established in 1976.

The main tasks of the unit are to support state level events and to serve in the Honor Guard at the Eternal Flame at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The squadron’s soldiers have repeatedly participated in events devoted to inauguration of the President of the Russian Federation, official ceremonies of guard and horse guard mounting, as well as international military festivals — in Great Britain, Denmark, Germany, Norway, Switzerland and other countries.

A special ceremonial uniform was created for the squadron, and parts of this outfit correspond to the parade uniform of the Russian Imperial Guard as of 1909–1913, thus underlining continuity of the traditions. Simonov’s semi-automatic carbine (SKS) is in service.
