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 about himself: “I was wounded ten times: five times in the war, five times at court. All last wounds are fatal.”
ORGANIZED COMMUNICATION IN BATTLE
Captain Dzhanbolat Gamzaev
“The unit under the command of Captain Dzhanbolat Gamzaev operated as part of a motorized rifle brigade, carrying out a combat mission to ensure uninterrupted communication within the brigade and with the higher command. During the transfer to new positions, Captain Gamzaev personally supervised the deployment of a communication center. The enemy, trying to prevent our units from fixing on new lines, attacked the positions of the motorized rifle brigade. Despite the regular shelling by the militants, Captain Gamzaev managed to organize stable and continuous communication with the higher command, as well as with the command post of the brigade, as soon as possible, which allowed the leaders to quickly send commandos to attack the positions of the militants. Repeated attempts by the enemy to disrupt control of the brigade units were unsuccessful, thanks to the additional communication system deployed by Captain Gamzaev’s subordinates and which provided immediate notification of interacting troops. The professional, courageous and decisive actions of Dzhanbolat Gamzaev and his subordinates allowed the command to quickly coordinate the actions of the forces in battle, as a result of which our troops repelled the attack of the nationalists and entrenched in new lines. For courage and heroism displayed during the performance of a combat mission, Captain Dzhanbolat Gamzaev was awarded the Zhukov medal.

Lieutenant Chermen Shavlokhov
“A platoon under the command of Lieutenant Chermen Shavlokhov carried out a combat mission to protect the marching Russian units. Following the route, the Russian military discovered an enemy sabotage group operating in the area of their movement. Having assessed the situation, Chermen made a decision: to secretly approach the positions of the nationalists in order to deliver a sudden blow to them. Having taken advantageous positions, a platoon under the command of Lieutenant Shavlokhov opened aimed fire at the Ukrainian militants. Having suffered heavy losses in manpower, the surviving Nationalists laid down their arms and surrendered. During the interrogation, the militants revealed the location of their artillery positions. During the reconnaissance of an unmanned aerial vehicle in the area indicated by the captured nationalists, enemy artillery positions were discovered. An air raid was carried out on the discovered positions, as a result of which 4 self-propelled artillery mounts, 8 vehicles and more than 20 nationalists. The well-coordinated actions of the platoon under the command of Lieutenant Chermen Shavlokhov made it possible to thwart the impending provocations against the Russian troops and to eliminate a large number of enemy personnel and equipment.
