The title of Hero of the Russian Federation (posthumously) awarded to the special forces officer of the internal troops

On August 17, a detachment unit searched for an armed gang in the Khasavyurt district. After the discovery of the bandits, a battle ensued, during which the bandits attempted to break through the battle formations of the special forces. By lieutenant colonel Ivan Maslov, the situation was correctly assessed and, to prevent a breakthrough, he introduced a reserve into battle, which he himself headed.

The idea of ​​the bandits, thus, managed to break and they, taking a more advantageous position, moved the firepower to the reserve, approaching them. In these difficult conditions, Lieutenant Colonel Ivan Maslov acted decisively and professionally, displaying the best qualities of a special forces officer in these conditions. Leading a continuous fire on the militants and making distracting maneuvers, Maslov made it possible for his subordinates to leave from under the flank strike in order to re-enter the battle after regrouping. The lieutenant colonel, covering his comrades, was seriously wounded, but continued to manage the actions of the unit and fire. Unfortunately, the injury he received was fatal, and the officer died, having completed his military duty to the end.

Thanks to the heroism and courage of Lieutenant Colonel Maslov, it was possible to prevent the deaths of servicemen participating in the battle. In this gang was neutralized. As a result of the operation, six active members of the gang were destroyed, a multi-level, well-disguised underground base of militants, ammunition, and small weapon, means of communication, as well as documents exposing a grouping in terrorist activities.

Maslov Ivan Vladimirovich was born on November 15 1978 in the city of Artem. In 2000, he graduated from the Far Eastern Military Institute with honors. At the end of the school received a distribution in the MIA of the Russian Federation. During his service he commanded a platoon, a company, a group of special forces, was the chief of intelligence and the deputy chief of staff of the regiment, the chief of the branch office of the compound.

    Honor and glory to the heroes. Unfortunately, in apparent peacetime, the real defenders of the Motherland die. A soldier is always a soldier. By his feat, he will serve as an example for the present and future defenders of the Motherland. We wish everyone - life in the name of the Motherland. Many argue - whom we protect - the Oligarchs, officials, etc. .... No! We protect our people, their present and future. Eternal memory !!!.

    ... here I sit and think ... Does it really surprise me alone that in the hostilities, against bandits, the Russian guys are constantly dying ???
    And not just hypothetical "guys", but specially trained warriors, and not hypothetical "specially trained warriors", but special forces !!! Is it really only I who see that they NEVER TAKE POWERS! KILLING EVERYONE !!! Do we no longer need languages? Why is a house fired with a high-explosive fragmentation grenade and not a tear or nerve grenade? Have they run out of warehouses? Why are the captured people NOT GUTTING OUT OF ALL THE INFORMATION? Why Israel, a Palestinian convicted of terrorism, IMMEDIATELY DESTROY THE HOUSE ??? Why can't we do this? They drove a Caterpillar and swept away the bandit's house. They need to be shot on takeoff, if the mom and dad of the future, growing up terrorist will know that if the son is identified as a terrorist, they will lose their home, so they will deprive him of the opportunity to be a bandit in the future in his youth. Why are our people fighting not as special forces, but as amateurs? Who is behind all this? Why in the zone where the CTO regime is introduced, cars can drive with tinted windows? If in Palestine a car with ztonirovka drove up to the checkpoint, it would have been shot from machine guns at the entrance to the checkpoint !!!
    Who does not pass laws?
    Who is ruining our guys?
    Who does not teach them to fight?
    Is it really the only one I understand that for the DEATH of a SPECIALIST, and even against a civilian bandit, it is necessary to remove the Minister of the Interior from his post ???

      the whole trouble is that they are rulers who call it WHO who has the task of detaining and prosecuting members of the illegal armed formations and the laws of war are not invaluable and the security forces should deal with them since they wouldn’t violate his constituency with an ordinary criminal, therefore there is such a loss during the clashes in my being in the Chechen Republic by order of Maltensky during the sweeps we were forbidden to wear masks and demanded to be represented
      F guy sorry and the star of the hero does not replace the mother of the son and the children of the father

      "Is it really only one I understand that for the DEATH of a special forces soldier, and even against a civilian bandit, it is necessary to remove the Minister of Internal Affairs from his post ???" - not the Minister of Internal Affairs, but the ONE who appointed this minister ..

      Sorry, but there is one problem - namely, Kagal Alekseevs, Kovalevs, etc. - Guardians of the Russian land, fucking human rights activists - these will be twisted so that they will do a hero from a bandit. That's what would not allow this riffraff to make fun of the mind and use weapons to maxim. ( It's my personal opinion ).
      Will be the hero of the Russian land in peace !!!

      In general, everything is right friend ... but tell me, in Israel there have been fewer terrorist attacks after the caterpillar’s ​​work, or has the mother of the fallen victim become easier? Here is Thoth and it is friendly, everything is much deeper ...

        It’s not easier for parents. But there are fewer terrorist attacks - they think, is it worth starting? Arabs often hire people from the side to shoot and blow up.

      I agree! and I’ll add it annoys me when there is a special operation against 5 6 militants who are seated at a height or at home, helicopters are circling BMPs. Protest of militants advocates the very special forces. And at the end, the operation lasts 2–3 days, a total of 2 terrorists are killed, the rest disappeared while the victim was on our side!

    Heroic deed, and accordingly appreciated by the state! It is a pity that posthumously. Eternal glory to the Hero!

    PS - It is outrageous that the feat was "evaluated" for almost six months. For some reason, upon the arrival of any "foreign comrade..a", or the jubilee of a "statesman", the award is immediately found "hero".
    But those who have accomplished a feat, in the name of the state and its people, are evaluated by "someone" and "somewhere" - worthy or not worthy. Yes, and this lasts, sometimes for years, despite the fact that there are still decent commanders who will achieve this, passing all the "bureaucratic barriers."

    Eternal memory - to the defender of the fatherland!

    And to the question why they are not taking prisoner. I will answer. Because we have too much scum divorced. And this scum, the so-called human rights activists, of a bandit, will make the victim. Therefore, it is correct that they are not taken prisoner. Dog canine death.
