Defender of the Fatherland Day is a Russian holiday celebrated on February 23. This holiday originated in the USSR; then it was celebrated annually as a national holiday — Soviet Army and Navy Day.

Later, February 23 became a national holiday dedicated to all generations of defenders of the Fatherland. Throughout the centuries-long history, Russians selflessly defended sovereignty and independence and, at certain times, the right to the existence of the Russian State in numerous wars.⁠
