We continue to acquaint you with the heroes of the special operation “Z” – participants in the hostilities in the Donbass. Soldiers, sergeants, corporals, and officers who demonstrated their professional experience, character, and completed combat missions. 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.
“No nation gains as much as England by continuing the war,” said Generalissimo Alexander Suvorov, who did not lose a single battle. And so he instructed the soldiers: “Let them teach the infidel army to sharpen burnt iron.”
ENEMY OBSERVERS DESTROYED
Guard Lieutenant Roman KUTUZOV
“The deputy commander of a guard motorized rifle platoon, Lieutenant Roman Kutuzov, during reconnaissance of enemy positions, discovered an observation post disguised as Ukrainian nationalists. Competently assigning tasks to subordinates and observing all the rules of camouflage, the unit bypassed the observation post and, at the set signal, simultaneously attacked the enemy from two sides with grenade launchers and small arms.
Thanks to the competent and non-standard actions of the unit under the leadership of Guard Lieutenant Roman Kutuzov, the enemy observation post was destroyed, which made it possible to continue the offensive while maintaining stealth.
SEVEN HOURS DISTRACTED THE ENEMY
Sergeant Major 2nd Class Sergey GORDY
“The foreman of the second article, Sergei Gordy, as part of a group of marines, drove the nationalists out of the village. Moving through the town, Gordia’s group encountered enemy resistance. Under massive fire from small arms, a group of infantry, having destroyed the enemy’s firing point, settled in an abandoned building. The enemy launched a counterattack with artillery support. For 7 hours, the group held the defense, preventing the enemy from breaking through. Thanks to the stubborn resistance of the group led by Sergei Gordii, the reinforcements managed to encircle the advancing enemy raiding parties and destroy them. The personal courage of Sergei Gordy and the competent leadership of the group made it possible to avoid losses in his unit, to seize an advantageous line and to destroy the counterattacking enemy units without allowing a breakthrough in the defense of our units.
