“The crew of the Tyulpan self-propelled mortar under the command of Senior Lieutenant Oleg Perevalov carried out a combat mission to provide fire cover for a battalion tactical group of the Russian Armed Forces that was storming enemy fortifications. During the advance, Oleg discovered a well-fortified long-range firing point, from which the nationalists opened machine-gun fire on our troops.
