    Activists of Russia’s Military-Technical Society crossed the Kerch Strait in two BRDM-2 amphibious armored personnel carriers on July 23. The event was dedicated to the liberation of Crimea from fascists.

    According to Alexei Migalen, the president of the Military-Technical Society, the event called 'Kerch Landing. The Road of Courage' honored the 1943 Kerch-Eltigensky landing operation to liberate the Crimean peninsula from German fascist invaders. The armored vehicles covered 15 kilometers in almost three hours. One of the crews was entirely female. The event will be registered in the Russian Book of Records for "the largest distance of the sea route covered on two BRDM-2 armored vehicles."
