Welcome Tovarisch! This is the on-line home for the 253rd Rifle Regiment, 45th Division, 62nd Army of the Workers' and Peasants' Red Army  (recreated).
We are a group of Great Patriotic War (or World War Two, as it is known in the west) reenactors, our goal to recreate one of the units that fought and eventually drove the fascist hordes from Mother Russia after their treacherous invasion of her sacred soil.
Za Rodinu!

The members of the 253rd do not support, subscribe to, or promote the idealogical or politcal beliefs of Stalin and/or Communism.  Our mission is to honor the men and women who fought and died defending their Motherland from the Nazi invaders during the Great Patriotic War, and to educate the public on the contributions of the Red Army to the eventual defeat of Fascism in Europe during this terrible period of history.
