We continue to acquaint with the heroes of the special operation “Z” – participants in the hostilities in the Donbass. Sergeants, corporals and officers who showed their professional experience, character and completed combat missions. Their determination, assertiveness and combat experience in the Ministry of Defense of Russia and the People’s Militia of the Luhansk People’s Republic are highly appreciated.

“Military virtues: for a soldier – courage, for an officer – courage, for a general – courage, guided by the principles of order and discipline, controlled by vigilance and forethought,” Generalissimo Alexander Suvorov told the soldiers. And the Russian commander also remarked: “They lie in the office – they beat them in the field.”

“Senior warrant officer Vasily Osipenko performed a combat mission to deliver ammunition to a tank company fighting near one of the settlements. Arriving in a given area, Vasily proceeded to unload ammunition. At that moment, the enemy attempted a counteroffensive and opened artillery fire on the positions of the Russian Armed Forces. In the conditions of incessant fire, Vasily Osipenko, realizing that a projectile hitting a car with ammunition would lead to a powerful explosion capable of destroying a large number of manpower and equipment of a tank company, decided to take the car with shells out of the fire. While the car was moving, an enemy artillery shell exploded nearby. Senior warrant officer Vasily Osipenko was seriously injured, but despite this, he was able to get the car out of the enemy artillery fire to a safe place.

“Deputy commander of a separate tank battalion of the 2nd Army Corps of the People’s Militia of the Luhansk People’s Republic, Major Mikhail Ponamorev came to serve as a militia in 2014. At first he served in intelligence, then he was transferred to a tank unit. Competent actions, the courage of a soldier were noted by the command and Ponamarev began a special military operation already in the position of commander of a tank company. Now he is the deputy commander of the battalion. He took part in the battles for Rubezhnoye, Novoaydar and Borovskoye. When taking one of the settlements, the tank unit was given the task of forcing the river and providing a bridgehead for the offensive of the main forces. The task was completed, which made it possible for the units of the People’s Militia of the LPR to liberate the village from the military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine as soon as possible. During the execution of tasks within the framework of a special military operation, the tankers under the command of Mikhail Ponamorev did not suffer a single loss.
