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.

“Nature produced only one Russia. She has no rivals. We are Russians, we will overcome everything, ”said Generalissimo Alexander Suvorov, who did not lose a single battle. And more about tactics: “Speed ​​is needed, but haste is harmful.”

SAVE THE VEHICLE WITH AMMUNITION

Corporal Maxim Murzenko

“The driver of the material support company, Corporal Maxim Murzenko, was delivering fuel to the Airborne Troops grouping, which was fighting fierce battles with the superior forces of Ukrainian nationalists.

Moving to the rear area of ​​the Russian grouping, the column of motor vehicles was subjected to mortar fire from the enemy sabotage and reconnaissance group. As a result of a mine hit, one of the cars caught fire. Instantly orienting himself in the situation, Maxim Murzenko provided emergency medical assistance to two wounded servicemen. Being under heavy enemy fire, he evacuated them to a safe place. Further, skillfully maneuvering the truck on the terrain, he brought his car out from under enemy fire, preventing the destruction of materiel and property. Thanks to the competent and decisive actions of Corporal Maxim Murzenko, Russian units were supplied in a timely manner, and the lives of military personnel were also saved.
