Sergeant Major Almaz Safin

We continue to acquaint you with the heroes of the special operation “Z” – participants in the hostilities in the Donbass. His determination, assertiveness and combat experience in the Ministry of Defense of Russia, in the police units of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, receive the highest marks.

Our heroes thwarted the attacks and prevented the counter-offensive of the nationalists, for which they received state awards. But they do not serve for the sake of praise and awards. The military is sure that the enemy has no chance of success, because Donbass and Russia are fighting for a just cause.

“Hatred overshadows reason,” said Generalissimo Alexander Suvorov, who never lost a single battle. And he repeated: “It is better to encounter danger than to expect it on the spot.”


Sergeant Major Almaz SAFIN

On January 16, Vladimir Putin awarded the Hero of Russia to paratrooper Almaz Safin. The hero of Russia Almaz Safin, at the cost of his life, thwarted an attempt by the Armed Forces of Ukraine to attack the city of Kremennaya.

Details of the battle are in the report dated January 14, 2023: “Senior Sergeant Almaz Minigaleevich Safin has been participating in a special military operation since September 30. The parachute platoon of the reconnaissance company of the 237th airborne assault regiment of the 76th Guards Airborne Assault Division under the command of Sergeant Safin, as part of the battalion, received a terrible blow – the enemy abandoned all reserves to recapture to the Kremennaya paratroopers. Safin was the first to give the order to open fire, and he himself destroyed five servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. This attack was repulsed, but the enemy methodically began firing mortars at the platoon positions. Senior Sergeant Safin received a serious shrapnel wound, but without leaving his positions he continued to control his subordinates and direct aimed fire.

The enemy tried more than once to dislodge the paratroopers from their positions, but each time they met with fierce resistance. As a result, the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost in this area: a tank, two armored vehicles and up to 50 servicemen. And when reinforcements from the regiment’s 3rd Airborne Assault Battalion approached Safin, the paratroopers pushed the Ukrainian nationalists even further back to their original lines. Senior Sergeant Almaz Safin died from his wounds after the battle, having fulfilled the assigned combat mission to the end. His heroic and decisive actions, combined with high professionalism and skillful leadership of the personnel, made it possible to prevent the breakthrough of the numerically superior trained and equipped units of the Ukrainian armed forces, which suffered significant damage.


As it became known on KP.RU, the foreman Almaz Safin was a professional soldier. He served under a contract in the Russian Defense Ministry for more than eight years, participated in the operation in Syria. He is originally from the village of Raevsky, Alsheevsky district of Bashkortostan, where he will always be remembered by family and friends.


Almaz’s aunt Safina Zilya Chupova: “He has an older brother Dinislam, an older sister Dinara, Almaz is the youngest in the family. After the end of military service, in retirement, he wanted to return and live in Bashkortostan, he said that his soul was drawn to his native places. His eldest son is 15 years old, his daughters are 10 and 6 years old. Mom went to visit them in Novosibirsk. And Almaz himself came to Bashkortostan on vacation a couple of times a year. I met with all my relatives, a very open, kind, sociable person. Now those people are weird. Last year, Almaz and his children came on vacation.

He did not speak in front of his mother, but to us, as if jokingly, he said: “I am going to Ukraine.” Of course, we try to dissuade him, because he has a family, three children.

No, I was sure I had to do this: “I went to Syria, how can I not protect my country?” Although, as the father of three children, he could have received a deferment. But he left.

“I am in the military, this is my life, my profession, everything is fine, I have a guardian angel, my dad sees me. Dad wanted me to be brave. So who will protect you here girls? I will go there, none of you will know, ”she said.

Almaz’s colleague Vadim Ramazanov: “He served at the Novosibirsk Higher Military Command School, where the whole institute knows him. A real man, a man of his word. He took me to serve in his company. His character, his spirit were such that he, in spite of everything, carried out the task. And he taught us to be like that. This man is my teacher, my mentor. He played an important role in my formation, tempered my character, taught me to fulfill the tasks of life.
