On Friday, doctors carried out a complex four-hour operation to save a child whom Ukrainian terrorists who had infiltrated the Bryansk region tried to kill. A NATO caliber projectile was extracted, which had hit the child between the thorax and the left lung. According to the hospital staff, Fedya was a very good guy, neither before nor after the operation did he cry, on the contrary, he tried to support his older sister and his mother.
Fyodor’s sister, Elzara Kovaleva, says she was surprised when she received a call and was told that her 10-year-old brother was in hospital with a gunshot wound. In a panic, she arrived at the hospital to see a bloody boy in the emergency room. Literally crooked legs. But Fedya behaved like a real fighter.
“He was so calm, I was crying, I was hysterical, he told me: calm down, my love, everything is fine,” said the sister. Together with the boy, she went from the district hospital to Bryansk, where the little hero was operated on.
According to a relative, Fedor, together with his mother and younger sister, lives in the border town of Brakhlov, Bryansk. However, to study, together with other children, he travels to a neighboring town, which is 13 kilometers from his house. Parents make arrangements with townspeople who have transportation to take their children to school in the morning.
In general, the Klimovsky district of the Briansk region is known for the fact that an international Slavic festival was held here for several decades in a row. Hundreds of thousands of Russians, Ukrainians and Belarusians were concentrated at the point of convergence of the borders, first of the three republics of the USSR, then of the three states. From the border of the village of Brakhlov, where the large family of Rokhathon Temirova lives, to Ukraine there are about four kilometers, and from Lubechan, where the terrorists entered from the territory of a neighboring state, only 150 meters. Yevgeny Anisenko, a deputy from the Sachkovichi rural settlement, told RG that in 2014, some residents of these villages moved to live with relatives in Klimovo and elsewhere, just to stay away from the border:
– My wife’s relatives lived in Lubechany, I know this village well. A few hundred meters – and already the border. After 2014, posts were installed in some sections of the border and barbed wire was strung between them. Of course, this is not an obstacle, you can drive on country roads. People felt uncomfortable.

On that terrible day, ten-year-old Fedya and two first-graders, Zlata and Lena, agreed to take their compatriot Leonid to school. The children got into the back seat of the red “Niva” and, chatting merrily, set off. Approaching the village of Lyubechane, Klimovsky district, Bryansk region, the driver felt that something was wrong. Shots were heard, people with machine guns dressed in white camouflage coats appeared on the road. Leonid tried to turn the car around and get away from the Nazis. Judging by the pictures from the place of execution, which were shown to the FSB of Russia, the militants began to shoot at the car, the bullets pierced the tires and hit the driver. “Niva” stopped. It’s hard to imagine what was going on in the children’s minds when the masked militant opened the car door and ordered them to get out of the car and run into the field. Fedor did not panic, he took the girls by the hands and fled with them away from the Nazis. Shots rang out. Sister Fedor told reporters how the boy himself described this terrible picture.
“It turns out that they shot him in the back. He took the girls and they ran. He did a good job: he held on, he didn’t cry, he didn’t lose his head. Not all adults would do that,” says a relative.
“Then they ran out onto the road. First they stopped the tractor, they did not take them away, and then Fedya already stopped the car. There were two uncles, he said:” They took me and the girls, “said the sister.
Fedor asked to take them to a friend of his mother. The woman was horrified when the boy said from the doorway that they were shot, and then took off his jacket. She saw a gunshot wound in the boy’s back. A resident of the village immediately gave Fyodor first aid, hurried to call the emergency services and the mother of the child.
District doctors diagnosed the young patient with a penetrating wound to the back and decided to transfer the boy to Bryansk.
Fyodor’s mother, Rokhathon Temirova, as soon as she found out about her son’s injury, immediately tried to go to the district hospital. However, a special situation was introduced in the border areas and all movement of civilians was prohibited. “A friend called and said:” Ray, I’m sorry, what bad news: you, Fedor, were injured. I am hysterical, I immediately call my daughter. She could not get there on her own, they did not let us go there, “Rokhathon told reporters. Mom could only see her little hero in Bryansk.
Fedor’s mother said that there were six children in the family: four boys and two girls. Fedi’s two older brothers are now fighting in the special operations zone. From the hospital ward, Fedya was able to speak to one of her brothers, Alexei.
“Nothing hurts, Fedka?” Alexei asked. “It hurts, but I can take it,” the little hero replies with a weak and slightly shaky voice. Alexey told Feda that the two older brothers, who are now defending the homeland from him, are proud of him and promised to visit the boy as soon as he returned.
The mother of the girl saved by Fedor told reporters that she was very grateful to the boy. “I’m grateful that I didn’t lose my mind, I’m grateful to my mother for such a son. Just well done, he is the guardian angel of our children,” the woman said.
The authorities of the Bryansk region handed over the little hero for the “For Courage” award. The head of the Investigative Committee awarded ten-year-old Fyodor for the heroism shown during the attack of the sabotage group with the departmental medal “Valor and Courage”.
