    Khattab wanted to drop the landing from the pass,
    It became hot in heaven, the place became scarce.
    Open the gates to heaven, angel ...
    To you with a bow forever to the temple is the sixth company.
    For three days, the people of the Caucasus croaked in the snow,
    All his fury and agility squeezed to failure,
    Could not break the landing, broken teeth
    - They could not break! whispered lips.

      "About those heroes I will say the words from the song of the deceased officer:"For a penny and a ruble, we fought that difficult battle, and so that you, Russia - mother, would call the Great ...».
      Paratroopers from the 6 company performed a collective feat in the modern history of Russia, stopping the destruction of the state".

    Honor and praise to the guys.
    It is hard to imagine how yesterday’s schoolchildren, a boy from the street suddenly opens up such depths of character, such properties inherent in our people that it does not lend itself to comprehension.
    Let the earth rest in peace.
    And let St. George take them under his care - the patron saint of the Russian army.

    Do not know.
    Is there a monument to soldiers in Argun Gorge?
