HE TAKEN THE COLUMN UNDER THE FIRE
Sergeant Danil Romanov
“The column of Russian units, which included the head of the communications platoon, Danil Romanov, and his subordinates, came under massive attack by Ukrainian nationalists near the bridge across the river. During one of the volleys, the bridge, along which the advance of Russian troops to a certain area was to take place, was destroyed, as a result of which the Russian units were crushed by the enemy. Despite constant heavy artillery fire from the Nationalists, the crew under Romanov’s command, showing courage and dedication, deployed integrated communications hardware and provided the unit command with communications with higher headquarters. Through organized communication channels, the tasks of the engineering units for the construction of a pontoon crossing the river were quickly clarified and the location coordinates of the enemy forces were transmitted, on the basis of which they fired on the enemy. Thanks to the timely transmitted coordinates, the nationalist units were suppressed, and the convoy, after establishing a crossing, reached a certain area in a timely manner without loss.
