“Friends, our compatriot Ivan Kalashnikov, call sign “Bolshoi”, has been nominated for the title of Hero of the Russian Federation! Ivan, from the village of Novy Zagan, Mukhorshibirsky district, was mobilized and now serves in the 37th Motorized Rifle Brigade as deputy platoon commander,” Nikolaev wrote on his official Telegram channel.
Recall that Kalashnikov skillfully led a unit of five fighters who repelled an attack by 12 servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and then put them to flight in the area of the village of Urozhaynoye, south of Donetsk.
Unique images of the battle of our motorized riflemen were captured by a camera mounted on a reconnaissance drone. The images show that the trenches of the sides were separated by a few meters.
