We continue to acquaint with the heroes of the special operation “Z” – participants in the hostilities in the Donbass. Privates, sergeants, corporals and officers who showed their professional experience, character and completed combat missions. Their determination, assertiveness and combat experience in the Russian Ministry of Defense, in the police units of the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, are given the highest rating.

Our heroes thwarted the attacks and prevented the counteroffensive of the nationalists, for which they received state awards. But they do not serve for the sake of praise and awards.

The servicemen are sure that the enemy has no chance of success, because Donbass and Russia are fighting for a just cause.

“Die yourself – save a comrade,” said Generalissimo Alexander Suvorov, who did not lose a single battle. He also believed that: “Goodness and mercy are needed for heroes.”

“Since the beginning of the special military operation, senior warrant officer Vyacheslav Yusupov, a communications platoon technician, as part of the crew of a mobile control center, has been performing a combat mission to ensure communication between units of a group of Russian troops. As a result of the shelling of Ukrainian nationalists, fragments of the Tochka-U tactical missile damaged the satellite communications station, which is one of the main means of controlling the units of the group of troops. Under heavy enemy fire, Vyacheslav Yusupov evacuated the wounded personnel to a safe place, where they received first aid, and he himself, despite the incessant shelling, restored the satellite communication station’s receiver-transmitter unit damaged by shrapnel.

The selfless actions of Vyacheslav Yusupov, his high professionalism made it possible to quickly restore the main means of communication of the group and save the lives of wounded comrades.
