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 Russian Defense Ministry, in the militia units of the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, are highly appreciated.
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. The military is sure that the enemy has no chance of success, because Donbass and Russia are fighting for a just cause.
“The true rule of military art is to directly attack the enemy from the most sensitive side for him, and not to converge, timidly making his way along indirect paths, through which the attack itself becomes polysyllabic, while the matter can only be decided for a direct and daring offensive,” said Generalissimo Alexander Suvorov, who never lost a single battle. And he taught the warriors: “Proper target shooting is of great importance – it multiplies the death of the enemy and avoids unnecessary waste of cartridges in action!”
CARRIED OUT THE ACTION OF THE NATIONALISTS
Junior Sergeant Egor Sinyushkin
“The squad leader, the commander of the combat vehicle, Junior Sergeant Yegor Sinyushkin, carried out the task of blockading one of the settlements controlled by Ukrainian nationalists. With the support of artillery, the nationalists tried to leave the village through the defense sector of the company, which included Yegor’s apartment. In the course of repelling the attack with aimed fire from the BMP armament, Yegor chained the actions of the main forces of the advancing militants. Skillfully maneuvering on the battlefield, Junior Sergeant Sinyushkin destroyed as many as ten nationalists. Competently leading the department entrusted to him, Yegor did not allow the enemy to break through into this defense area, as well as losses among the department’s personnel. Having suffered losses, the Nationalists were forced to withdraw to their original lines.
DESTROY THE WAREHOUSE WITH ONE SHOT
Private Egor Sapunov
“Private Egor Sapunov, as part of the squad of the assault group, made a breakthrough in defending the enemy in one of the tactical directions. During the battle, competently using the terrain and moving covertly, the paratrooper bypassed the positions of the nationalists from the rear and an accurate shot from a hand anti-tank grenade (RPG) hit the artillery weapons depot and enemy rockets, the detonation of which led to the destruction of three vehicles. Continuing the battle, Sapunov destroyed two mortar positions along with the crews. As a result, the Ukrainian militants, deprived of mortar support, withdrew. Thanks to the bold and courageous actions of Yegor Sapunov, the Russian units managed to break through the enemy’s defense sector and develop offensive operations.
