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.

“Do not carry large convoys with you, the main thing is speed and onslaught, your bread is in the convoy and backpacks of enemies,” said Generalissimo Alexander Suvorov, who did not lose a single battle. He also explained why military conflicts do not end quickly: “Victory is the enemy of war.”

RESTORED COMMUNICATION UNDER FIRE

Junior Sergeant Alexei ALEKHIN

“Junior sergeant Alexei Alekhin, during the period of a special military operation under conditions of systematic fire impact, performed combat missions to organize uninterrupted communications in the interests of the command post of the Russian Armed Forces grouping. Armed formations of Ukrainian nationalists attempted to attack the positions of the Russian Armed Forces, as a result of which the command post came under artillery fire from Ukrainian nationalists.

Communication equipment was damaged during the enemy attack. Realizing that the lack of communication would deprive the command of the ability to quickly coordinate the actions of the forces in battle, despite the mortal danger, Alexey, together with the crew, promptly advanced to restore the damaged equipment. Junior Sergeant Alekhin personally supervised his subordinates, setting an example of endurance, perseverance and selflessness. The courageous and confident actions of junior sergeant Alekhin, as well as the professionalism of his subordinates, made it possible to quickly entrust communications and prevent the possibility of losing control of the troops.

MANUALLY DELIVERED AMMUNITION

Senior Sergeant Anatoly SERGEEV

“Senior Sergeant Anatoly Sergeyev carried out the delivery of ammunition to the starting positions of the battery, located in close proximity to the line of contact. At the moment when Anatoly and his subordinates began to unload ammunition, the enemy began shelling the positions of Russian troops. Having assessed the situation, Anatoly made a selfless decision, despite the life-threatening danger, to drive the car away from the positions of the unit. Sergeant Sergeyev managed, using the conditions of the terrain, to disguise the car. Realizing that during the battle it is necessary to have a sufficient amount of ammunition, Anatoly, together with his subordinates, began to deliver them manually. By his actions, Senior Sergeant Sergeev was able to timely provide artillerymen with ammunition in positions, which allowed the Russian troops to repel the enemy attack and hold their positions.
