Private Rinat Basharov and Sergeant Ivan Anisimov
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.
“God have mercy, we are Russians! Let’s crush the enemy! And the victory over him, and the victory over deception will be a victory! – said Generalissimo Alexander Suvorov, who did not lose a single battle. And before the assault on the outskirts of Warsaw-Prague, he taught the soldiers: “Hunters (volunteers-ed.) With their superiors will be ahead of the team. When we go, the soldiers go silent, they don’t say a word, they don’t shoot. We approach the pit – without hesitating for a second, throw a fascinator, go down and lay the stairs to the pit. Short stairs? bayonet on the shaft – get on it, another, third. Defend your comrade! Do not shoot, do not shoot unnecessarily, hit and drive the enemy with a bayonet, work quickly, quickly, boldly, in Russian! Do not enter the houses, forgive the enemy who asks for mercy, do not kill the unarmed, do not fight with women, do not touch the young. Who among us will be killed, the Kingdom of Heaven and the living, glory! glory! glory!”

“The squad leader, Sergeant Ivan Anisimov, acting as part of a battalion tactical group of the Russian Armed Forces, carried out tasks to defend the area from armed formations of Ukrainian nationalists. The enemy tried to break through the defensive lines and attacked the positions of Russian military personnel. In the course of a defensive battle, with dense enemy artillery and tank fire against a platoon stronghold of Russian troops, Ivan, acting as part of the calculation of an infantry fighting vehicle, inflicted fire damage on the nationalists. In battle, acting decisively and courageously, Sergeant Ivan Anisimov destroyed an enemy all-terrain vehicle of foreign production, as well as a large number of enemy manpower, with aimed fire.
