Dear friends!

From the moment of its foundation the Russian Geographical Society has been one of the main centers of development of Russian school of military geography. The Society was joining the officers of the General Staff, naval commanders, secret service agents. It is enough to remember Dmitry Milutin, Nikolay Stoletov, Andrey Snesarev.

The members of the Russian Geographical Society participated in all the major armed conflicts of the middle of XIX-XX centuries: since the Crimean and ending with the Great Patriotic War. Form the payroll of the Society of the year of 1941 the Great Victory was met only by every second of them.

The traditions of courage, heroism, self-sacrifice in the Russian Geographical Society are still alive.

We congratulate all who care about the destiny of their Homeland, have a nice Day of Defender of the Fatherland!
