They took it as complete surrender: victory flooded the military leadership of the Ministry of emergency situations on fire, — said “Kommersant” the firefighter, who asked not to mention his name.— Officers did not wear berets in exchange for a penalty from the authorities. So their abolition has a symbolic meaning: is a signal that the policy is completely changed. So Chupriyan and started with the berets.”
