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.
“Who is good for the first role is not suitable for the second!” Said Generalissimo Alexander Suvorov, who did not lose a single battle. And he taught warriors to predict events: “Great adventures begin from small reasons.”
BROKEN THE PILLBOX OF THE ENEMY
Senior sailor Alexei Zavodskoy
“The battalion tactical group of the Russian Armed Forces, which included senior sailor Alexei Zavodskoy, was tasked with preventing the enemy from breaking through the defense lines and approaching the nationalist reserves. Aleksey, as part of the crew of a rocket-propelled artillery platoon fighting vehicle, went on a combat mission to confront the nationalists who had tried to break through the defensive positions of the Russian troops. Providing fire support to the Russian units, the weapons crew of Senior Sailor Zavodskoy conducted uninterrupted and accurate firing at the specified coordinates. Alexei Zavodsky’s calculation, thanks to cohesive and coordinated actions, destroyed the enemy’s mortar crew and up to 20 nationalists. Also during the battle, being under constant enemy fire, the crew of the combat vehicle hit a concrete pillbox, from which the enemy fired at our troops, as a result of which the enemy’s firearm and up to 7 militants were destroyed. . The artillery strikes inflicted on enemy targets significantly weakened the battle formations of the nationalists, which made it possible to push them back to their original positions.
DEFENDED THE VILLAGE IN BATTLE
Lieutenant Efendi Magmedov
“As part of a subdivision of the Russian Armed Forces, Lieutenant Efendi Magamedov participated in the liberation of one of the settlements of units of Ukrainian nationalists.
After the militants were driven out, the Russian units were given the task of gaining a foothold in their positions by organizing the defense. During the week, the nationalists made repeated attempts to break through the positions of the Russian units, using jamming means. Magmedov, despite the difficult radio-electronic situation, organized uninterrupted communication between the unit, which made it possible to quickly coordinate the forces during the defense. As a result of another enemy artillery salvo, the antenna located on the hardware machine that provides communications within the division was damaged. Magamedov personally, despite the threat to his own life, stepped forward to repair the damage.
Acting boldly and decisively, Efendi quickly repaired the faults and reconfigured the communication station, while receiving a shrapnel wound from a mortar shell that exploded nearby.
As soon as communication was restored, the artillery crews received the coordinates of the locations of the Nationalists’ artillery and mortar positions, which contributed to the destruction of their military equipment and a large amount of manpower. As a result of the confrontation, all the attacks of the militants were repulsed, the settlement remained under the control of the Russian Armed Forces.
