An interview appeared on the telegram channel “Yakutia: all about the SVO” with the same heroic tank crew, whose soldiers single-handedly stopped the column of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on NATO armored vehicles.
“They are presented to high state awards. The crew of this heroic tank is our fellow Yakutian. A worthy son of the Sakha people. Say hello to your mother, father, brothers, sisters and all relatives! Urui Aikhal!!!”, write the authors of the post and show the faces of those who are admired by millions of people around the world.
And three tankers say that everything we admire so much in these epic shots is just their day job.
The tank commander with the call sign “Alyosha” thanks the crew: “We did not know, it would just turn out that way.” Every output is like this. There is also a video that we just don’t show you. I am proud of the gunner operator, he is a strong-willed person.
But the gunner-operator, who accurately hit all the targets, has more far-sighted plans. He wants to personally look into the eyes of the makers of Leopards and Abrams.
“As our president once said, if a fight is inevitable, strike first. I would like to look into the eyes of Western (Ukrainian) curators and salute the manufacturer Leopard. The Abramses will be here soon. And we’re going to get to know them too. And for them this acquaintance will not remain without a trace. They will be disappointed,” he said.
And the driver, taking the opportunity, simply waved to friends. Then he said: “I send greetings to my native Yakutia.”
The crew of the combat vehicle will receive high state awards. The solution is already there.
Recall, the Ministry of Defense of Russia said that the Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu presented the crew of a Russian tank for state awards, which showed courage and heroism in repelling an attack by an armored group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Zaporozhye direction in June 2023.
