We continue to acquaint you 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.

“The work of the master is afraid. And the peasant does not know how to own a plow – bread will not be born, ”said Generalissimo Alexander Suvorov, who did not lose a single battle. And he also believed that: “The burden of service is light when many people lift it together.”
