Storming the Terrible 1995 of the Year - Plan for Lightning Capture

One of the heavy pages stories The Russian Federation reflects the events of January 1995 on the territory of the Chechen Republic in its capital, Grozny. The plan for the assault on the capital, in which Dudayevites concentrated, was developed in a hurry, but this did not embarrass the military officials. Pavel Grachev's famous phrase that Grozny can be taken in two hours turned out to be refuted by two months of bloody battles.

Storming the Terrible 1995 of the Year - Plan for Lightning Capture

Four groups were to enter Grozny, codenamed “North,” “West,” “East,” and “North-East.” As Potapov, chief of staff of the North Caucasus Military District, stated in his report, the conduct of lengthy battles for Grozny is not supposed. The plan, developed just a few days before the outbreak of hostilities, had many significant shortcomings, and the commanders of the groups, consisting of a huge number of recruits who did not have the relevant experience, unanimously argued that the assault should be postponed for additional training. The main miscalculation of the strategists was the almost complete disregard for the ability of the Dudayevites to repulse the federal troops. However, the group included a few assault troops, consisting mainly of battalions of airborne or motorized rifle troops, reinforced tank company or anti-aircraft guns. In the plan there was absolutely no indication of a case of resistance by militants in the form of fire, and the command was strictly forbidden to occupy residential buildings and open fire on them. In such buildings, the Dudaevites dispersed. The goal was set for the groups: to take administrative buildings, including the Presidential Palace and the government building, radio, railway station. However, the cards issued on the eve of by no means all turned out to be outdated, and the aerial survey is of poor quality. The assault squads were intended to block the quarters and organize safe corridors along which the main forces should follow.

The Western group under the command of Major General Valeriy Petruk was to go to the railway station, and after the building was occupied by federal troops, go to the Presidential Palace and block it from the south. During the assault, tasks were transferred to the North division. The western grouping consisted of 6 thousand people, 75 guns, 43 tank, 50 BMD and 160 BMP. Federal troops "West" entered Grozny in 7 hours 30 minutes, but during the operation the task of taking the station was canceled, and the forces were sent to the Presidential Palace. Up to 12 hours of the day, Dudayev residents did not show any resistance, as subsequent events showed not by chance. Aslan Maskhadov’s plan was to pass and block federal forces in the center of the city. Each of the columns came under heavy fire, snipers worked professionally. The Dudayevites tried to block the ways of withdrawal in order to destroy the attackers completely.

At about 2 hours of the day 693-y sms was suddenly attacked, the column rose not far from the city market, a fierce battle ensued. By the 18 clock, the motorized riflemen tried to move away, but were taken into a tight ring near Leninsky Park, radio contact with them was lost. In the Andreevskoy valley, the militants opened fire on the consolidated 76-th ppp and 21-th ovdbr. Unprepared for such fierce resistance, the western parts already by 13 watches were forced to gain a foothold in the southern areas of the city and go on the defensive. The offensive group plan was completely thwarted.

The "North" under the command of Major General Pulikovsky consisted of a 4100 man, possessed 210 BMP, 80 tanks, and also 65 mortars and guns. His main task under the assault plan was to prevent reinforcements from approaching the militants from Katayama, as well as advancing along the city’s designated area and blocking the Presidential Palace from the north. The group entered the city from its direction exactly at 6 in the morning. The soldiers were met with frightening inscriptions: “Welcome to HELL!”, Which was not far from the truth. 81 msp and 131 omsbr almost unhindered advance to the railway station, where they settled without taking into account a possible attack. As a result, the enemy was able to concentrate more than 3 thousands of people at this point and surround the federal troops. The fight began at 7 hours of the evening and lasted all night. The station was not surrendered, but at the end of the defense only eight people remained in the building. Part of the squad tried to break through along the railway, but was almost completely destroyed by the militants.

The northeastern group, consisting of 2200 military, 125 units of armored vehicles and 7 tanks, 25 guns, and mortars, was headed by Lieutenant General Rokhlin. According to the plan, the grouping should have attacked along the Petropavlovskoye Highway, but intelligence just a day before the start of the assault informed Rokhlin that the road was mined by land mines, so the route was changed. In order to deceive Dudaev, it was decided to imitate the attack on the highway, and throw the main forces on the bypass road. Even 30 December 33-y ssp under the direction of Colonel Vereshchagin occupied the bridge on the Neftyanka River, pulling back a large part of Dudayev’s. The main offensive began in 6 hours 30 minutes, already by 9 hours, the 33-ss went to the cannery, providing a safe corridor to move assault companies. 10.00 was taken to the city cemetery, occupied by militants who did not expect artillery to hit the shrine.

The assault group Kornienko occupied the cannery and left some of the people for his defense. The main forces moved into the depths of Grozny. On the Circular and Mayakovsky 255-oh connected with 81 MSW. The task of 68 Orb was to occupy a position in the hospital complex. The hospital complex was located on Ordzhonikidze Square, in order to occupy it, the detachment had to break the resistance of Dudayev residents at the Sunzhu crossing, and then wage a fierce battle on the square itself. As a result, the building was taken, and the detachment went on the defensive. During the battle, the northeastern group found itself under fire not only from Chechens, but also from other federal forces, there was no clear radio link, sometimes it completely disappeared, there were no exact maps either.

Further, the group did not advance, as Rokhlin understood that further movements could deprive the forces entrusted to him with respect to a quiet rear, reinforcements and the supply of food and ammunition. Soon the militants still managed to encircle the troops of the northeastern group, but Rokhlin did not think to retreat, but the connection with the rear was maintained. January 7 under his command also entered the northern group. Two days later, Rokhlin launched an offensive, with the result that the city’s airport was taken, as well as a petrochemical plant. Only to the 19-th number after long battles managed to occupy the Presidential Palace. For more than two weeks of fighting, federal forces were able to capture only a little more than a third of the city, and the situation in some positions was characterized as very tense and unstable.

The Eastern group was originally supposed to act under the command of Rokhlin, but a few days before the assault, Major General Stasko was appointed instead. On the preparation of the operation remained no more than two days, and consisted of a grouping of scattered detachments, most of which participated in the hostilities for the first time. The task in this direction was the following: to seize the eastern districts of the city along the borders of the Sunzha River and Leninsky Prospekt, and without setting up checkpoints, or exposing them at exceptionally important points, move to Minutka Square. In fact, the Eastern group was entrusted with the function of depicting the main attack of federal troops in the city; it had to cover the maximum territory and then withdraw from Grozny.

Troops of the Vostok moved forward at 11 in the afternoon hours from the side of Khankala airport. The movement was carried out in two columns, and their trajectory was on a bypass road. Passing the suburbs, the assault troops were ambushed on a road bridge. The coordinated actions in the column were extremely bad, the connection was constantly interrupted. The fire impact on the convoy of militants caused panic and confusion, so the assault groups for some time proved to be a target for the attackers. The main forces of the group were scattered, and Stasko decided to retreat, until the 2 January, the Vostok group did not enter the fighting.

Reinforcement, which was successfully blocked by Dudaev, went to the groups held in a ring, largely due to the lack of maps, and the inexperience of drivers of armored vehicles also played a role. Losses in the first days of the fighting turned out to be significant, the lightning assault failed. However, the federal troops soon recovered and launched not only defensive but also offensive activity. As a result, by February 6 the resistance of the Dudayevites was broken, and the numbers of the same month on the organized scale of 26 ceased. 6 March was occupied by the last district of the rebellious city - Black Rivers.

Nevertheless, contrary to the forecasts of the Russian leadership, the war did not end there, the bloodshed continued for a long time. Militants used guerrilla war tactics, hiding in difficult mountainous terrain.

Each victory of the Russian soldier is now being discussed and viewed from different angles.

    So at first no assault was planned, since the possibility of a serious rebuff from the Dudayevites was either swept aside or ignored. In fact, the army was entrusted with a police operation to disarm illegal armed groups, they believed that as soon as tanks and infantry fighting vehicles appeared on the streets of Grozny, the Dudayevites would scatter in panic. At the same time, the Kremlin "strategists" simply dismissed the military intelligence data about the accumulation of armed detachments to the teeth in the city.
    I recall the words of one Austrian general (Laudon, it seems) during the Seven Years War - "In order for the Russians to start fighting, they first need to be well pushed, then they rise and begin to beat mercilessly."
    More than 200 years have passed, and everything remains the same.

    Troops "East" moved at 11 o’clock from the Khinkala airport. The movement was carried out in two columns, and their trajectory went along the bypass road. Passing the suburbs, the assault troops were ambushed on the automobile bridge. The actions in the column were extremely poorly coordinated; communication was constantly interrupted. The main forces of the group were dispersed, and Stasko decided to retreat, until January 2, the Vostok group did not enter the fighting.

    For this paragraph - MINUS article.
    The main forces of the group (129MSP and 133OTB) not scattered anywhere !!
    From the description of the battle: "At the entrance to the city, the assault group was divided into first and second. The first clashes began in the city on Ioanisiani St. and Kirov Ave. enemy tanks T-13A, periodically jumped out of cars, from which opened fire from grenade launchers. "
    From the description of the battle: "The 1st assault group consisting of the 1st motorized rifle battalion and the 1st tank company, turning, moved along Kirov avenue in the direction of the center. Coming out to the cinema" Russia ", at the intersection of Kirov avenue with Sultan Dudaev boulevard, subdivisions took up defense.
    From the description of the battle: "The 1st Motorized Rifle Battalion on Kirov Avenue went to the area of ​​the" Russia "cinema at 16:00 pm and stopped two blocks from it at the Promavtomatika Institute.
    From two five-storey buildings of the Institute of Promavtomatika by 17:30 the militants were driven out and a perimeter defense was taken. Then the commander of the 129th Guards Motorized Rifle Regiment received an order to move in the dark to the Rossiya cinema, where the 2nd assault group was concentrated. After moving, we took up a perimeter defense there. "
    From the description of the battle: "At 20:25, the command center of the [8th] corps received information about the actions of the Eastern grouping: they ran up against the rubble of reinforced concrete blocks and, having met strong enemy resistance, went over to a perimeter defense in the area of ​​the Rodina cinema [" Russia " The engineering equipment to clear the rubble never arrived. The units of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, which were supposed to ensure the installation of checkpoints in the rear of the group, were also lost somewhere. And the units of the 104th Airborne Division, which were supposed to support the offensive of the 129th regiment in case of success of his actions remained in the same area. In the 129th regiment 25 were killed and 65 wounded. 19 pieces of equipment were burned. "
    From the description of the battle: "At about 20:129, with the onset of complete darkness, the defense of the XNUMXth Guards Motorized Rifle Regiment opposite the Rossiya cinema was attacked from three sides by tanks and militant infantry, the units came under heavy enemy mortar fire.
    From the description of the battle: "The defensive battle lasted up to 2-3 hours. From a nearby building, with an RPG shot, the militants hit the transmission of a tank of the 1st tank company in the RSA (adjustable nozzle apparatus), the tank could not move and was shot from another tank while retreating, on the morning of January 1 , two GAZ-66s from the mortar battery were destroyed. Subdivisions of the 129th Guards Motorized Rifle Regiment and the 133rd Guards Separate Tank Battalion repelled the attacks with fire from the spot. The enemy was firing sniper and mortar fire. "
    and so., postscript ..
    According to official data "During the hostilities on the outskirts of the city of Grozny, personnel of the 129th infantry regiment picked up wounded Russian men and women. They, along with other civilians, were forcibly rounded up for use as human shields. They were placed in front of the Chechen fighters and ordered to run towards the positions. The militants walked behind them. Those who refused to obey were shot at soft tissues so that they could slowly but move forward. Those who could not walk were shot. In those cases when it was necessary to hold the line, the militants they interrupted the tendons of the legs of civilians so that people could not budge. The wounded were sent to the hospital.

    From the summary: "During the fighting from December 31 to January 1, the Vostok group lost more than 200 people and half of the available armored vehicles. The staffing of the 133rd Guards Separate Tank Battalion on January 3, 1995 was 85% (including 76% of officers), serviceable tanks 43%, a similar result was in the 129th Guards Motorized Rifle Regiment.
    Out of 660 small and medium-sized hospitals, 129 were admitted to MOSN No. 128 (field hospital).

    The most striking thing is the complete illiteracy in the operation. Having a wealth of experience in street fighting, so mediocre to conduct training. Let the tanks in front of the infantry, it is necessary to think of it. After such losses, the generals, led by the Minister of Defense, had to, like real officers, put a bullet in their forehead.
    And the courage of our guys is amazing. Any other army, in their place, would have stood up long ago and the figs would have moved wherever. As long as the city is not razed to the ground with aviation.

    The generals were "hit on the hands", apparently the political leadership was profitable to lose in that war as many personnel as possible.
    And Lev Rokhlin (the kingdom to him be heaven) being a skilled military leader was able to save the boys as much as possible, thereby gaining great authority among his subordinates, and indeed in the armed forces.
    By the way, Rokhlin planned a military coup in the country, but as you know, shortly before July 20, 1998, when Boris Yeltsin was to be arrested, Rokhlin was killed in his own cottage, veiled by a household quarrel.
    Glory to the Russian Army that linked its fate with the fate of the Motherland!

    b..d !!! was in the 2nd campaign, there they fought more competently and, most importantly, with less losses !!! I do not believe that in RUSSIA at that time there were no people who could really plan correctly and, most importantly, to put it into practice ----- there was the experience of Afghanistan !!! those officers and generals (most of them) were still in service !!! is it really leaning towards rubles and dollars in today's RUSSIA !!! if so , then where are we going !!!

      There were Afghans in my unit, and so what, the burning Grozny was just as incomprehensible to us as it was for us who were not in Afghanistan, not everyone had experience in conducting military operations, in a military community, such as a village, not to mention the city, such things.

    The troops of the "East" advanced at 11 o’clock from the side of the Khinkala airport. The movement was carried out in two columns, and their trajectory went along the bypass road. Passing the suburbs, the assault troops were ambushed on the automobile bridge. The actions in the column were extremely poorly coordinated; communication was constantly interrupted. The main forces of the group were dispersed, and Stasko decided to retreat, until January 2, the Vostok group did not enter the fighting.

    Here for this paragraph - the MINUS article.
    The main forces of the group (129MSP and 133OTB) did not disperse anywhere !!

    I confirm! Both units took part in the New Year's assault, and took it with dignity. In the future, the Czechs called the "Black Wing", and specifically the first company, "Mad Dogs". Both divisions suffered heavy losses.

    the video is not Pskopian. Consolidated baht, 119th Naro-Fominsk regiment of 106th Airborne Division .... in the mid-2000s, one of the many disbanded units in favor of the murky reform and "newly democrat" doctrine

      "... it was like that and it will always be like that ..." - the state of the Russian Federation is 20 years old with all the consequences ... in the events described, the Union army fought, with its brains, rules

    I just don’t understand why so many soldiers were killed, it’s easier to take the city into a ring and untie the hands of aviation, use 3-day detonating bombs for XNUMX days, and when there’s no stone left to offer to lay down arms, and tell the whole world that there was a gas leak
