RCPW Border Guard Radio Club Activity Days November 27 - December 6

Within the framework of the Diploma Program “Named Border Guard Outposts” another diploma “Andrey Korobitsyn Border Guard Outpost” was established. The diploma has 2 variants – basic and 1st-degree diploma.

А. I. Korobitsyn was born in 1904 in the village of Kurakino, Totemsky u. Vologda sponge in a large family of a poor peasant.

In 1926 he was drafted into the Red Army and sent to the Sestroretskaya frontier post of the Leningrad Military District. On the night of October 21, 1927, Komsomol member Andrey Korobitsyn joined the outfit. Bypassing his station, he noticed four violators, who had moved from Finland to the USSR territory. The brave border guard came into an unequal battle with them. Deadly wounded, he was able to block the way to the enemies.

The Soviet government praised the hero’s feat. The outpost where the frontiersman served was given his name; he was forever enrolled in the lists of the outpost.
In 1928, by the decision of the Presidium of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee, the hero’s homeland was renamed Korobitsyno village, and Kurakinsky village council of Siamzhensky district was renamed Korobitsyno village.
On October 20, 1957, on the border of Sosnovsky and Vsevolozhsky districts of Leningradskaya oblast, on the place of the former USSR state border, where the border guard was fighting with violators, a monument to an obelisk was opened. The words are engraved with gold on the granite: “Here, on October 21, 1927, border guard Andrey Korobitsyn made a heroic feat defending the USSR border”.

On August 26, 1966, the bust of the hero was installed in his homeland in the village Korobitsyno.
