The National Guard Forces of the Russian Federation will be represented at the 2017 Spasskaya Tower Festival by the Band of the Independent Operational Purpose Division of the Order of the Red Banner, Orders of Zhukov, Lenin and the October revolution named after F. E. Dzerzhinsky.

The first military band of the division was formed in February 1926. During the Great Patriotic War musicians of the division’s band formed a jazz band that performed as part of a field concert group for soldiers of the Workers’ and Peasants’ Red Army. Since its inception, the band has provided musical accompaniment for important social and political, cultural and large-scale public events, such as wreath-laying ceremonies, reception of foreign delegations, review of troops, and military music festivals.

The Federal Service of National Guard Forces of the Russian Federation was established under Decree № 157 of the President of the Russian Federation, dated 5 April 2016 on the basis of Internal Forces of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
