I'm sure they weren't active that entire time I've seen them disband several times I'm fairly confident.from my memory they disbanded once in late 2014 but im not sure bout this one
Would probably need one of their officers to speak up here then on how long they've actually been active in total.
So the 65y was founded, at least our steam page was made, on 18th January 2014 by Myself and a Russian guy named Mishapoch (Hence Russian Regiment), we wanted to avoid becoming a British/French regiment, as all regiments at the time pretty much were British/French, and if they were British, a 90% chance of them being a Highlander regiment or some shit like that, so we wanted to be different- fun fact, 65th Moskow Regiment was an actual historic regiment in that time period, only disbanding in 1918 or some shit after the russian revolution.
Anyways, I can confirm, that we as a regiment have never disbanded nor taken "breaks"
. The only breaks we take would be over the christmas period for like 2 weeks where even then we have operated a reduced timetable - primarily because some people either don't have family/friends or hate their family, so, having an online community to reach is a good way to spend christmas instead of drinking sorrows and diving into depression. So, over the past 7 (nearly 8 ) years, myself, or some admin staff have run the show. Our current 2nd in command, KIKO, has been in the 65y since 6 months into its inception, and Dyatlov who I think joined 4/5years ago maybe? do an amazing job running events, and whilst I may have taken 6 months off now and then out of the regiment for education/irl shit, we have continued going.
What Levis might be referring to in our disbanding is our NA side, throughout the 7 or so years of the 65y, we have been predominantly EU, whilst we have had several attempts at gaining traction into the NA community, these have mostly failed, except from our 3rd and most recent endeavour, where we have been active in NA for about 2-3 years now I think, led by Ranthus.
Fun fact - We've been going to the same Friday event since 2015, its our most popular event which pulls the biggest attendance each week.
Story time over.
