Monument to Russian peacekeepers erected in Abkhazia

In Sukhum, a monument was erected to Russian peacekeepers who died during the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict, reports Sputnik Abkhazia. President of Abkhazia Raul Khadzhimba declared that the monument will become a symbol of relations between Abkhazia and Russia.

Today a monument is opened in honor of these events, about people who were closely connected with the formation of our state, laid their heads on our land. 117 kills peacekeepers
Said the president.

The monument was erected at the initiative of the interregional public organization Council of Veterans of the Peacemaker Forces of Local Wars and Armed Conflicts "Peacemaker". The project is produced and installed by the national artist of Russia Vladimir Surovtsev.

Monument to Russian peacekeepers erected in Abkhazia

The right to open the monument was granted to the Hero of Abkhazia, Lieutenant-General Vyacheslav Eshba and Chairman of the Council of the public veteran organization Peacemaker Lieutenant-General Alexander Evteev.

The Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, Alexander Khloponin, thanked the leadership and the people of Abkhazia for the memory of the peacekeepers.

Today's event is significant in every sense. The fact that the monument to the peacemaker stands next to the monument to the soldiers who defended our homeland in the Great Patriotic War, where our fathers and grandfathers fought shoulder to shoulder with the fascist yoke, is certainly a very important and significant event. These soldiers, the Heroes of Russia, are truly a symbol of peace and a guarantee of peace on earth. Low bow to the inhabitants of Abkhazia for this memory
- said Khloponin.

The servicemen of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation carried out a peacekeeping mission in the Republic of Abkhazia from 1994 to 2008 for the year as part of the Collective Peacekeeping Force.

        The Mongols turned to Putin to give Hero of Russia Bato Dashidorzhiev posthumously.
        The resident of Mongolia wrote about this personally to the president of the Russian Federation, ARD reports. The Mongols are not at all indifferent at the deeds of their blood brothers in Russia - the Buryats and Kalmyks.
        The Mongols did not leave without attention the act of Bato Dashidorzhdiev. The citizen of Mongolia Chuluunzhav Ayanga personally addressed the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin with a request to award the Buryat warrior with the title of Hero of Russia, posthumously.
        “Appeal to the President of Russia V.V. Putin.

        Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich, I sincerely ask you to pay attention to the fact of a heroic act committed by private Bato Dashidorzhiev during his service at his trusted post.
        He managed to confront a whole convoy of motorized infantry of the Georgian army alone, not allowing them to follow further to escalate the conflict. In doing so, he prevented the deaths of hundreds and hundreds of civilians and soldiers on both sides.
        The fact was widely covered at one time by the media of different countries. In this connection, even a “catch phrase” about Russians appeared: “300 is not necessary, just one is enough.”
        This feat is undoubtedly worthy of the high title of Hero of Russia. He, the heroic son of Russia, died in that war, protecting the innocent inhabitants of Ossetia. Please posthumously award the Hero, we believe in you.
        Thank you and wish you success, the truth is behind you.
        Sincerely yours, Chuluunzhav Ayanga. Citizen of fraternal Mongolia. "

        ...... From the time the question was asked, it became known a little more about this case. But not about the biography of Bato Doshidorzhiev from Buryatia, she is still inaccessible. The guy, apparently, from the GRU special forces, therefore holds the Pecheneg machine gun in his hands, which the motorized rifles simply did not have in 2008. There were three of them, Bator, a KrAZai driver and a commander. Two covered from the sidelines. The commander called for help, our 2 T-72 tanks were approaching them.
        But standing on the trunks of many machines, you need a lot of courage, to pay tribute to Bato Doshidorzhiev necessary.
        It seems that in fact he died later in South Ossetia.

        ...... Bato Doshidorzhiev was drilled by nationality and fought with the Georgians in 2008 when they attacked Tskhinvali and the location of Russian peacekeepers on August 8. The episode in the photo was made in the area of ​​the city of Gori by foreign correspondents who accompanied the column of Georgian military.
        The Russian soldier came out alone to meet the convoy with a machine gun, did not allow them to pass, just sending a foul language.
        The same correspondents launched a meme: "300 is not necessary - one is enough!"
        He became popular after the publication of the so-called article.
        At the last Olympics, Tuyana Dashidorzhieva, presumably the younger sister of Bato, won silver for Russia, but there is no solid evidence for this.

    The blessed memory of the fallen. Due to state stupidity. Peacemaker - this is when the butt in the teeth of all kinds of nosed freaks is preventive, in order to avoid, so that in a dull head the idea is borzoi excluded. In another they do not understand. And it will not be necessary to erect monuments. It was then that they managed not to show deep concern, but combed their hair on the slope, albeit with a delay.

        I would say that Russian is not a nationality, but a state of mind: protect the weak, help those in need, uphold justice, our strength is in the truth, therefore we cannot be defeated and there are more than 140 millions of us.

    We should not forget that our peacekeepers served as a UN mandate. But Georgia treacherously opened fire on the peacekeepers. She trampled on all the laws defining peacekeeping. The West, this disgrace of the Georgians, did not “see” - the double-faced policy, as always, prevailed.
