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.
“Beat the enemy, not sparing either him or himself, the one who has less pity for himself wins,” said Generalissimo Alexander Suvorov, who did not lose a single battle. And he repeated: “Do not be afraid of death, then you will probably win. Two deaths cannot happen, but one cannot be avoided.

REFLECTED THE ENEMY’S ATTACK
Corporal Artem PEREVOZKIN
In the course of repulsing the enemy offensive, reinforced by armored vehicles, there was a threat of a breakthrough in the defense at the line held by the unit, which included Corporal Artem Perevozkin.
Quickly assessing the situation, the senior rifleman of the motorized rifle company, Corporal Perevozkin, secretly advanced into the flank of the advancing enemy. Having waited for the approach of armored vehicles to the line of confident defeat from regular anti-tank weapons, he set fire to two units of armored vehicles with several accurate shots. The enemy motorized infantry, having lost fire support and being under heavy fire from the Perevozkin squad, retreated in a hurry. Thanks to the confident and competent actions of Private Artem Perevozkin, the enemy suffered significant losses, and the defensive lines they held were not broken through.”
RESTORED COMMUNICATION IN THE BATTLE
Captain Valentin BESSONOV
“The head of the communications station, Captain Valentin Bessonov, during a special military operation in conditions fraught with a risk to life, performed the tasks of providing a battalion tactical group of Russian troops with stable communications. During the conduct of defensive battles in the area of one of the settlements, the positions of our troops were subjected to artillery fire. As a result of another volley of enemy artillery, the station providing communications inside the BTGr and with the higher command received shrapnel damage from a shell that exploded nearby and went out of order. Despite the threat to his life, Bessonov, realizing that the loss of communication with the higher command and within the units would make it impossible to quickly coordinate the actions of the forces in battle, advanced along with the crew to the damaged station and began to restore the equipment. Thanks to the courage and dedication of Bessonov, as well as the professionalism of his subordinates, the Russian signalmen managed to quickly restore communications inside the BTG, which made it possible to transmit the coordinates of enemy artillery positions, as a result of which they were suppressed by return artillery fire. For courage and courage shown in the performance of a combat mission, Captain Valentin Bessonov was awarded the Suvorov medal.
COVERED THE DEPARTURE OF COMRADES
Private Daniil TYUKAVKIN
“Acting as part of a group of Russian military personnel, machine gunner Private Daniil Tyukavkin provided cover for the unit during the battle. The enemy, using numerical superiority, attempted to encircle Russian servicemen. In order to exclude the possibility of the encirclement of the group, the commander decided to withdraw the unit to a more advantageous position. When retreating to new positions, Tyukavkin continued to cover the unit with fire. After the failure of the machine gun, he took two machine guns captured from the enemy and continued to fight. Covering the withdrawal of the unit, he was the last to leave the firing position until he was convinced that the last person from his unit had left.
Skillfully and competently changing firing positions, Private Daniil Tyukavkin did not allow the encirclement of the group and losses among the personnel, and also inflicted significant losses on the enemy, disrupting the offensive by the nationalist at the entrusted line of defense.
