Damansky. An island that will remain only in our memory

147
Half a century. For stories, in principle, no time limit. One side. On the other ... Forty-nine years ago, our fighters and frontier guards clashed with PLA soldiers in an unequal battle. And they won.


Damansky. An island that will remain only in our memory


It is difficult to say how in 2019, we will interpret and recall these events. And will they be remembered at all, simply because we no longer have Damansky Island, and China has Precious Island. Yes, and with China seems to be peace, friendship, and so on. We'll see.

But today we want to remember not events, no. Events we will remember next year. More precisely, remember, but not in detail in terms of events.

Once upon a time, in 1888, during a survey work for the construction of the Trans-Siberian Railway, railway engineer Stanislav Damansky was killed. Drowned in the treacherous Ussuri River. The event is tragic, but ordinary for those places. Taiga and numerous Siberian rivers are dangerous even today.

The comrades found the body of the deceased engineer not far from the nameless island. And, according to the traditions that still exist, the island was named after the deceased - Damansky Island.

The island is small. 0,74 square kilometer area. 1500-1700 meters long and 500-600 meters wide. To live on it is difficult. During the spring flood, it is well warmed. But to conduct business activities on a rotational basis is quite possible.

Legally, the island became part of Russia in the 1860 year, even without being open. According to the Beijing Treaty, the border between China and the Russian Empire began to pass along the Chinese bank of the Amur. In fact, the people from the one and the other used the rivers without restrictions. Moreover, a few Chinese and Russians lived quite close to each other. And the islands that appear and disappear on the rivers were considered like draws.

I specifically started the story from afar. Just because so far in our and Chinese sources there are a lot of discrepancies in this matter. The differences that prevent us from understanding the background of the events described below. Who is right and who is wrong?

Now the mean numbers obtained from the premium department of the archive of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. For their heroism and courage in the performance of official duties during the 2 and 15 events of March 1969, in the area of ​​Damansky Island, 300 people were awarded, of whom 59 was posthumous. Of the total number of awarded 216, border troops were military personnel, 80 were military personnel of the Soviet army, and 4 civilians.

Four border guards and one soldier of the Soviet Army (three posthumously) were awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union. Three were awarded the Order of Lenin. 18 man - the Order of the Red Banner (6 posthumously). 65 people were awarded the Order of the Red Star (6 posthumously). 29 people were awarded (!) The Order of Glory III degree (4 posthumously). 118 people were awarded the medal "For Courage" (40 posthumously). 62 - Medal for Military Merit.

The events in the Damansky area did not come as a surprise to the top leaders of the USSR and the PRC. Intelligence worked well. Therefore, periodically reports were sent to Moscow about an upcoming provocation in the area of ​​the island. Yes, and the border guards who served in the area, perfectly saw everything. Moreover, periodic fights with fighters of the Chinese agricultural army became the norm. Weapon border guards were forbidden to use.

This period in the history of China is called beautifully - the cultural revolution. In fact, the fact that the young supporters of Mao, the Red Guards (the red guards, the Red Guards), were doing, had nothing to do with culture. It was their authorities used for provocations. By the year 1968-69, attacks on even border patrols became commonplace.

What happened on Damanski on Sunday, March 2? Alas, but this Sunday for the entire DVO was a working day. The troops participated in the exercises to repel an enemy attack from the Primorye region. Including the border guards guarding the border on the Ussuri River. The main forces and military equipment of the border guards were deployed 50 kilometers inland. Three dozen border guards remained at the outposts.

Taking advantage of the weakening of the frontier post, the Chinese decided on a provocation. At night, a PLA company crossed the island and secretly took up a position on the high western coast of the island. In the afternoon, around 10-20, the Ussuri ice reached the 30 Chinese border guards.

The chief of the Novo-Mikhaylovka 2 th post, Senior Lieutenant Ivan Strelnikov, decides to push the Chinese back from Soviet territory. On the BTR-60PB and two cars, he and a group of 31 border guards are being pushed to the scene of the violation.

In place of Strelnikov divided the group into two groups. One, under the command of the chief of the outpost, was to oust the Chinese from the ice in front of the island. The second is to cut off the group to 20 people who disappeared on the island. The border guards did not know about the ambush that the Chinese had prepared ...

At that moment, when the officer demanded to leave the Soviet territory, at the command of a Chinese officer (raised hand), an ambush shot the border guards at point-blank range. The same fate befell the second group under the command of Sergeant Rabovich. From 11, 9 people were killed on the spot. Corporal Akulov was unconscious captured. Only one wounded man survived - Private Serebrov.

Upon hearing the shooting, the junior sergeant Yuri Babansky took over the command of the outpost. The 12 man remained at the outpost. Branch It was they who took the fight. Half an hour later there were five of them.

At this time, the commander of the neighboring 1-th outpost "Kulebyakiny sopki" senior lieutenant Vitaly Bubenin advanced to help the neighbors on the BTR-60PB and two cars. Around 11-30, he joined the Babansky group. 24 border guards with "Kulebyakina Sopka" and five from "Novo-Mikhailovka" took up defense with the support of two armored personnel carriers.

After 30 minutes of battle, the Chinese realized that they could not take the border guards alive. Then the mortars entered the business. Bubenin decides to attack the BTR. However, during the attack, the machine gun was wedged. Senior Lieutenant returned for the second. But now he attacked the Chinese from the rear.

Alas, the BTR was "enough" only to destroy the enemy's company on the ice. From the wrecked car, Bubenin with the fighters leaves in the direction of the Soviet coast. But, going out on an armored troop-carrier Strelnikov, it transplants on him and continues the fight. This time destroyed the command post. But when trying to pick up the wounded, the stopped BTR is shot from RPG-2.

At about 13 hours, the Chinese began to retreat ... At the same time, the head of the border detachment, Colonel Leonov, and reinforcements from neighboring outposts and reserves of the Pacific and Far Eastern border districts arrive in the conflict area. In the depths a motorized rifle division was deployed, equipped, among other things, with the then highly classified BM-21 Grad.

On the opposite side, the 24 Infantry Regiment numbered up to 5 thousand people deployed. The border guards were also reinforced by neighboring outposts.

The losses of the parties in this battle: USSR - 45 people, of whom 31 was killed. People's Republic of China - 39 killed. The number of wounded is unknown. This is according to our specialists. The Chinese classified their losses.

The next escalation of the conflict dates back to March 14. 15-00 received an order to remove border guards from the island. The Chinese immediately pulled up their units on the left positions. Then the border guards came to the island under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Yanshin. 45 man with the support of 4 BTRs.

On March 15, after mutual psychological treatment of the enemy through loudspeakers, after an artillery attack with up to 60 barrels, the Chinese launched an attack in 3 companies. To help Yanshin moved forward by 4 tanks T-62 Colonel Leonov.

In battle, one of the tanks sank, and Leonov's tank was shot down from a grenade launcher. Leonov himself died trying to leave the burning car. But the actions of the tankers made it possible for the Yanshin group to leave the island. It became clear that the available forces would not be enough to defend the island.

Then the responsibility was taken by the Commander of the Far East Military District, Lieutenant General Oleg Losik.

He ordered to strike "Grads." In 17-00 15 March "Grads" were first used in a combat situation. The result stunned the Chinese. Personnel, ammunition depots, headquarters and gearbox were destroyed. In 17-20, the 2 battalion of the 199 motorized rifle regiment attacked. The Chinese fled to their shore.

Soviet units also returned. Individual foci of resistance were shot up to 19 hours. However, they were quickly suppressed by motorized riflemen. The conflict was over.

In conclusion, I want to cite a complete list of awarded soldiers and officers for the Damansky for today. Someone is no longer with us, someone is alive. The fact is that the awarding of combatants was carried out by 6 by decrees of the Supreme Soviet, most of which were then classified.

Two decrees on awarding titles Hero of the Soviet Union Yu. V. Babansky, D. A. Bubenin, D. V. Leonov (posthumously) and I. I. Strelnikov (posthumously) were signed on March 21, 1969.

And four citizens not from among military men.

Order of the Red Star for the provision of first aid was awarded Strelnikova Lydia Fedorovna (the widow of the chief of 2-th outpost, I.I. Strelnikova).

Medals "For Military Merit" Avdeevs, Anatoly Gerasimovich, Gennady Vasilyevich and Dmitry Artemyevich were awarded, who brought x-sled carts to 2 in March 1969, on which ammunition was transferred to the battlefield.

The list is big. But here, on our pages, it is absolutely appropriate and logical. The memory of those who took the fight 49 years ago is our, one might say, combat mission.

All we have left is the memory of those who fought and who died in March 1969.

Damansky Island, and now Precious, is the military-administrative zone of the People's Republic of China, and the Russians, and other foreigners, cannot get there. But the Chinese military do not just let their tourists go there. Carry specifically, "so that the Chinese people did not forget their history and remembered the feat on the island of Precious."





There is a museum on the island, which presents a Chinese perspective on events. Memorial events and commemorations of the departed are held, the number of which is still under a great secret.

We only have such a memory. However, we will remember all the heroes of our time listed above and we will remember their contribution to the understanding by the world that ours is ours.

Despite the fact that politicians actually spat on the blood shed by our soldiers, we are obliged to keep the memory of the events on the Damansky, no matter how the relations between Russia and China may be. For whoever remembers the old, that eye out, and whoever forgets the old, that two.

      After all the previous help and support of the USSR ----- the Chinese have committed such a villainy.
      This, apparently, is their national trait.

        The Soviet Union shared technology and military equipment with many countries, helped and built infrastructure, too, as a result, everyone answered with black ingratitude. So this is not a Chinese national trait, but a short-sighted policy of the USSR, which is one of the backward in the development of China in both economic and militarily, made almost a superpower.

          Quote: Yak28
          So this is not a Chinese national trait, but short-sighted policy THE USSR,

          Exactly! The same thing happened with the countries of Eastern Europe — they forgave them the atrocities of the Great Patriotic War, reparations, fed themselves damage and received powerful enemies.
          With Germany, even worse: fiercely fought for ..... preservation unified Germany. belay We have the strongest enemy, again ....

          1969 Mr. I perfectly remember that time - they were afraid that there would be a big war. Thanks to our soldiers who broke so that the Chinese did not want more .....

          It’s just that China skillfully wore the mask of a “Soviet friend”, where it helped (North Korea). Therefore, they could not foresee treachery. If we consider the biblical subjects, then the Lord God did not provide for the betrayal of Satan (he also exalted him before this).
          About China as the emperor of France Napoleon Banaparte spoke. (China is sleeping and God forbid it to wake up).

            Read the article on VO - Who gave the Amur Islands to China? March 10, 2017.
            Here are excerpts from this article -
            The black day was 16 May 1991. On this day, Soviet Judas, concurrently the first and last President of the USSR, M. S. Gorbachev, signed a document stating that the border with China must pass along the fairway of the Amur River.
            So for the first time in hundreds of years, China had a legal opportunity to officially challenge the islands of Great Ussuriisky and Tarabarov from Russia.
            I emphasize that for several hundred years before this point the question of affiliation has never been fixed. Gorbachev just automatically wrote down all the disputed territories.
            While the Chinese quietly went nuts and did not believe their eyes, Gorbachev successfully ruined the Union and went to the dustbin of history. But the documents they were kept under, remained, and moreover, Russia, as the successor of the USSR, received this joy by inheritance.

            But the worst began later. When Boris Neepykhayuschiy the first president of Russia entered into the business. Here is a specialist ...
            December 1992 of the year. Russian-Chinese summit. B.N. signs a memorandum of understanding between the governments of the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China on the mutual reduction of armed forces and confidence building in the military field in the border area.
            Excerpt from the 12 article.
            "The parties will continue negotiations on the not yet agreed sections of the border between the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China on the basis of agreements on the current Russian-Chinese border in accordance with generally accepted norms of international law, in the spirit of equal consultation, mutual understanding and mutual compliance in order to resolve border issues fairly and rationally" .
            Cross-border issues were resolved with true Yeltsin scope and generosity. Yeltsin gave about 600 (SIXTHOT) islands on the Amur and Ussuri rivers, both small and more than average. Plus about 11 square kilometers of land. Luxuriously.

            You forget that since the late 50s in the PRC, after a fierce internal party struggle, the adventurous policy of the "Great Leap Forward" has been pursued. And then the Cultural Revolution. How did we react to it. If we take the Soviet dogma, then the "Cultural Revolution" is a kind of Trotskyism, with Chinese characteristics.
            The Chinese in the 50-60s were continuous shy. They either stigmatized the USSR for "conspiring with the imperialists," or they themselves began to drastically improve relations with the West. Mao himself, apparently, did not completely control the situation in the party and the country.
            And do not exaggerate the Stalin factor. To him in the PRC was a difficult relationship in the 50-60s. He was also posthumously criticized. But not for what they criticized him in the USSR.))

"When completing a mission on a fighter (Chinese), the navigation equipment failed, but the pilot was not at a loss, took out the quotation box of the Great Helmsman and, guided by the ideas of the Great Mao, led the fighter to landing on his airfield" - almost literally.

          Nevertheless, the maximum criticism of Maoism was at the time of Brezhnev. One of the most irreconcilable towards Maoism since Khrushchev's time was Andropov.
          To be honest, when reading the speeches of Khrushchev and Brezhnev on the Chinese question, willy-nilly you come to the conclusion: and after all, they were largely correct in criticizing the then Chinese leadership. The trouble is that inter-party differences have grown into interstate confrontation. It was not possible to do, as with Yugoslavia since the mid-50s: the differences between the ideological parties remained, which did not prevent the development of political, trade and economic relations between the two countries. Although the Chinese should not be removed from their share of responsibility.

            Not something struck them. A completely cold calculation. With the submission of Khrushchev's hopes for the modernization of Chinese industry, they began to be questioned. And something needed to be done and it was possible to establish relations with the amers by escalating tensions with the USSR, because Taiwan was considered China and not China.

                They didn’t change their minds. Mao turned out to be smarter than L.Brezhnev. The war was not planned for the joy of Amers. But huge funds of the USSR were thrown into the wind by the threat of war. It’s not clear why. China managed to maneuver Western support for its economy. To distance itself from Moscow and conduct a more independent policy the interests of the PRC as well as pursuing its line in third countries. The USSR has harnessed itself to the arms race by spraying forces between the Amers and the Chinese. Political methods did not solve this problem; the rehabilitation of IV Stalin was not included in the plans of the Politburo.

            But read the materials of the 20th congress. Malenkov, Mikoyan, Kaganovich, Voroshilov, Bulganin at this congress, in subsequent speeches in 1956-1957, also very actively criticized the decisions taken in the last years of Stalin's life. The only thing that applies to Molotov to the least extent. And Khrushchev, his associates (who were later declared the "anti-party group in July 1957) were about to withdraw precisely because he began to move away from the principles of collective leadership, and he began to tend to return to the practice of making individual decisions without preliminary discussion at the Presidium of the Central Committee. That is, they criticized Khrushchev for the fact that, in their opinion, he departed from the decisions of the 20th Congress.))

          The Chinese are practical people. Although, according to their national rules, respect for the elder is necessary, they did not defend Stalin, but themselves. It is just that with the death of the leader the policy of the USSR changed, Khrushchev made secret contacts with the amers, turning away from China. As a result, the strongest alliance between China and the USSR, conceived by Stalin, broke up, and China began to prove that it was cooler.

But Khrushchev, not only did I.V. Stalin, at the 20th Congress of the CPSU, abuse the Great, and he lost battle with MAo! He invited him to the PRC and “lowered” Oro there!

          It is not wise to say so! The fact is that in practice, when demarcating the state border, "... USUALLY on reservoirs such as a river, lake ... it is customary to draw a boundary line along the navigable channel of rivers / reservoirs or along the thalweg, OR (!) Where the parties have decided or AGREED. What and it was fixed in the Nanjing Border Treaty, and the border passed along the Chinese / Manchurian coast of Ussuri and other rivers !!! Do not rush about "international practice"! Study international law!

    Tank T-62 No. 545 of Colonel Leonov at the PLA Museum in Beijing
    In the midst of the ensuing battle, the commander of the Uman border detachment Colonel Democrat Leonov led three T-62 tanks that arrived to support the border guards at Damansky. Unfortunately, he did not set any combat mission for the crews of vehicles. Tankers did not even uncovered the guns. Near the southern tip of the island, a Chinese grenade launcher shot down a tank caterpillar in which Leonov himself was.
    Through the landing hatch, the colonel tried to leave the tank, but he was in a thick white fur coat and was stuck in the hatch. Then he was cut off by a machine gun burst. Other tanks, having no connection with the headquarters and clearly defined tasks, returned to the outpost.
    As soon as Moscow learned that a secret tank was abandoned a hundred meters from the Chinese coast, the Minister of Defense, Marshal of the Soviet Union Andrei Grechko, ordered the evacuation of equipment at any cost. Unlike the old T-54, on which there was a 100 mm gun, the new one was equipped with smooth-bore guns with a caliber of 115 mm, and besides, the world's newest night-vision sight. Alas, already at night the Chinese with might and main removed their secret equipment ....

      Two inaccuracies ... Colonel Leonov led the 4 tank. Tank Leonov was hit from an RPG-2 and burned. The colonel himself was killed by a sniper.
      And the tank that stands in the Peking military museum was not hit. He simply drowned. The Chinese picked it up and transported it first to Harbin and then to Beijing. This picture is a modern one from the Peking Museum ... According to the recollections of Babansky ...

        Or in the USSR tank platoon consisted of 4 vehicles?
        Mikhail Baryatinsky T-62. The killer of the Centurions and Olyphant
        While the Far Eastern Command requested permission from Moscow to open fire on the Chinese coast, the border detachment Colonel D. Leonov decided to strike at the rear of the enemy with the forces of the assigned platoon of T-62 tanks (according to other sources, reconnaissance). Three T-62 tanks entered the Ussuri ice and turned around the Damansky Island, substituting the sides to the enemy. Using this, the Chinese knocked out the lead tank from an RPG-7 hand-held anti-tank grenade launcher. The crew, including Colonel Leonov, died. Two other tanks and border guards withdrew. Only in the evening an order was received from Moscow, which allowed firing on the Chinese coast. On the morning of March 17, a regiment of 122 mm howitzers and a division of Grad units launched a powerful blow to the island and Chinese territory to a depth of 7 km. After that, the 2nd battalion of the 199th Verkhneudinsky motorized rifle regiment was supported, with the support of a company of T-62 tanks. After a fierce battle, the island was cleared of the enemy. However, the wrecked tank remained on the ice of Ussuri between Damansky Island and the Chinese coast. Despite repeated attempts, it was not possible to evacuate him. In order to prevent the Chinese from evacuating the tank, constant artillery shelling was carried out from our side. As a result, a meter-thick ice burst and the tank sank. Formal privacy measures have been taken. True, the Soviet command did not know that the Chinese scouts entered the wrecked tank the very first night and removed the TSh2B-41 scope and carried out several shells, including armor-piercing-subcaliber. In May, after the ice came down, the Chinese managed to pull the tank to their shore. Subsequently, he was exhibited at the observation deck of the Military Revolutionary Museum in Beijing, where he is still located.

        If you have the staffing of the motorized rifle division in force in 1969, share it! Perhaps in the motorized rifle units, the platoon consisted of 4 tanks.
        Moreover, in the tank he consisted of 3 vehicles!

      Interesting. In 1969, the T-62 tank was still considered secret.
      And in 1973 (after 4 years!) Hundreds of them were already in Syria, with night vision devices,
      115th OBPSami and all the bells and whistles. There, several dozen of them got into trophies at once.

        Mikhail Baryatinsky T-62. The killer of the Centurions and Olyphant
        Deliveries of T-62 abroad began in the early 1970s. The main address was the Middle East. In 1971-1972, Egypt received about 400 T-62 (according to other sources - only 200). At the same time, there were some oddities. Sending tanks was carried out from the presence of the Ministry of Defense. An order of the Council of Ministers on this issue was drawn up in extreme haste, without the participation of the Military-Industrial Commission. When employees of the State Committee on Foreign Economic Relations (GKES) showed the draft document to the tankers, they gasped: a tank with a fundamentally new type of weapons and with a top secret armor-piercing-projectile went abroad. However, the question of the tank was not subject to discussion, since an agreement was reached at the highest level - between L. I. Brezhnev and G. Nasser. Then the military demanded to exclude from the ammunition shots with armor-piercing-ammunition shells. GKES, without discussing, took into account the requirements of the military and executed all the documents. In the Black Sea ports, the tanks were loaded onto ships and sent to Egypt. When the Egyptian tankers, most of whom were trained in the USSR, began to get acquainted with the T-62 arrivals, they first noticed that the scales for three types of shells were cut in the sight, and there were only two of them in ammunition. Reported to Nasser, who sent the corresponding cipher telegram to Brezhnev. There was a scandal. The Soviet side presented the case as a mistake made during dispatch, and sent out shots with armor-piercing-ammunition shells.
        In 1972, decisions were made at the highest level to supply T-62 tanks to Libya, Syria and Iraq.

        That's how the 155 mm BPS got into the Middle East.

      Alexey, from which site is the information? Usually in literature, the point is made that self-propelled guns were used from the Chinese side. Say, "someone saw something, but the truth or not - no one knows." Again, Ryabushkin wrote about three tanks in the monumental work “Daman Myths”, and that it was the “Democrat tank” that was later drowned with a 240-mm mortar.
      I would add a little article: on March 2 in the morning our patrol passed through the island, but I did not notice the Chinese lying down - they settled there in a snowstorm. They were not noticed until they opened fire. The body of the captured Pavel Akulov was then returned to ours ... with signs of torture ....
      On the Chinese side, a bunch of people received the title of their own, Chinese, "heroes" - two degrees. In the agitation, the Chinese were writing outright nonsense, they assigned a “hero” to some grenade launcher because he blew up an armored car with Yanshin (who actually survived).

        On the Internet there is this photo with and without text! Apparently a scan of photos from the magazine!
        But in the article Secret Tank War on Damansky Island
        The following information is provided:
        During the conflict, we lost 11 armored personnel carriers and then the top-secret T-62 tank. The Chinese car was blown up directly on the ice.
        In the midst of the ensuing battle, the commander of the Uman border detachment Colonel Democrat Leonov led three T-62 tanks that arrived to support the border guards at Damansky. Unfortunately, he did not set any combat mission for the crews of vehicles. Tankers did not even uncovered the guns. Near the southern tip of the island, a Chinese grenade launcher shot down a tank caterpillar in which Leonov himself was.
        Through the landing hatch, the colonel tried to leave the tank, but he was in a thick white fur coat and was stuck in the hatch. Then he was cut off by a machine gun burst. Other tanks, having no connection with the headquarters and clearly defined tasks, returned to the outpost.
        As soon as Moscow learned that a secret tank was abandoned a hundred meters from the Chinese coast, the Minister of Defense, Marshal of the Soviet Union Andrei Grechko, ordered the evacuation of equipment at any cost. Unlike the old T-54, on which there was a 100 mm gun, the new one had smooth-bore guns with a caliber of 115 mm, and also the world's newest night vision sight. Alas, already at night the Chinese with might and main removed their secret equipment.
        Attempts by sappers to blow up the tank ended in nothing. The enemy did not allow the detachment to approach the car. Moreover, the Chinese hooked the tank with cables and began to pull it to their shore. Then an battery of 240-mm mortars designed to destroy concrete pillboxes and underground fortifications was urgently transferred to the battlefield.
        Salvo fire managed to break the tow cables, but failed to blow up the tank. Moscow continued to bomb the military with telegrams. Order - at all costs to prevent the tank from entering the enemy. I had to again send sappers to the blown up car. The sorties were preceded by a massive massive shelling of Chinese positions from rocket launchers. Only after shelling did the minerals manage to get to the tank and blow up the ice.
        However, even after this, the ill-fated car only plunged into the water a little ... The tank remained standing sunk until the very end of April. All this time the Chinese tried to pull it to their side, and we tried to destroy the car.
        Only when the ice drift began and the T-62 completely went under water the motorized rifle division was returned to the barracks.
        Well, the Chinese still pulled that tank from Ussuri and today it stands in one of their military museums.

    The protocol to the treaty between the Russian Empire and the Chinese Empire of 1860 regarding passage of the border along the Chinese bank of the Ussuri River was not signed by the Chinese side. Therefore, after 100 years, the Chinese wanted to settle border relations on the basis of an international tradition - to draw a demarcation line along the fairway of the river.

    The Ussuri channel runs between the Russian coast and the coast of Damansky Island, so the Russian Federation recognized the sovereignty of the latter over the island in the 2000s, as part of a settlement with the PRC, and signed the corresponding border agreement on bilateral.

    PS The authors of the article were embarrassed to say that the “Grad” attack was not on the island, but on the coastal Chinese territory (located through the channel), which the Chinese did not expect at all, as a result, their entire regiment of 4000 foot soldiers died there because of crowded combat orders and the absence of field protective structures (the Chinese were located in snow trenches).

          I happened to serve with some of that Grad’s division in the same ZabVo garrison - they told me that the Chinese were taken out almost by dump trucks, loaded with escorts. The lesson went for the future. And then it became calmer on our site, and then for a month we sat on the increased combat, sleeping with pistols.

      Exactly - on the Chinese side! there the counters were still very worried, they nearly ripped off the shoulder straps from the division commander, but they managed. Yes, they say that it was not a regiment, but an infantry division, and according to the results of the provocation, if they had given slack, they had a desire to continue on a large scale. Not fused. After that, we strengthened the IS-3 SDs removed from the "cocoons" at our site.

        Quite right - an infantry division, but on the very Chinese coast opposite Damansky was its advanced regiment with a divisional / regimental KP and reinforced mortar crews, sappers, etc. (about 4000 people).

        The commander of the Far East Losik (such as apologizing to the Chinese) was removed for the super-efficiency of the Grad’s strike, but the enemy realized that the tactics of attacks in closed battle formations (worked out by the Chinese in the Korean War) would not work.

    Territorial disputes existed between the two countries since imperial times, the border is long, poorly mapped ... There have always been disputed territories. Apparently, not only the policy of corn, but also the fact that the PLA became the largest army in the world ----- played a role. Something seemed to hit my head.

    About 20 years ago I talked with one officer from the licensing system. He told me that being in the Central Internal Affairs Directorate of the Krasnodar Territory I met a peasant who wanted to go through cabinets for permission to SCS. I talked with him, turned out to be Bubenin, very modest by the way. So, the capital leaders rule Russia, even such people were forced to bow.

            Yes, by the way, I thought about the divergence of the regiment division. In the 70s, if of course you remember, the mass of divisions was cropped or not fully deployed, that is, these 4 tons were numbered. Maybe that's why our interlocutor considered the Chinese as a division. By the way, I often watched them in those days, I had to climb with PSRD and TZK (for poverty) it was a very funny sight - they marched with red quotes, scolded us, seduced us with rice ... chased sparrows with sticks. And laughter and sin. Merry time was, God forbid, it will happen again.

    Eternal memory to the heroes! I did not know that the island is now Chinese (ashamed of you). I heard about these events, but everything was in the form of rumors, at the end of the 80's already (in our country in Bulgaria) it became clear that the Grad installations were used.
    Thanks for the details about the events of those times. Truth sooner or later creeps out, no matter how they hide it.
    Well, who is it, and when did you give this island to the Chinese?

    Glory to all the soldiers who gave their lives and health, as well as the survivors FOR Our Soviet Motherland !!!
    Then March 14/15 The Soviet Army betrayed Border troops! All colonels, Far Eastern border guards, Sinists who served at that time, unanimously declared and repeatedly, IN THE NARROW CIRCLE! CSKA - in the courses !!!
    The fact is that between the KGB of the USSR and the General Staff of the Ministry of Defense of the USSR in the 60s-91st years there was a special Agreement announced by SA and PV (for leaders and officers.) According to which, in the case of the KGB Border Guards searching for single violators of the state border, the SA allocated a special reinforced combined-arms battalion, and in the case of an attack on the GP military groups and / or gangs, a reinforced combined-arms regiment, because the border guards could not do without on their own! So, on March 14/15, the battles for the island went with an increase in the density of troops, mainly from the PLA, because the frontier detachment headquarters and the district did not have military combat reserves !!! These days, the motor-group of Lieutenant Colonel Yashin fought on the island (45 people l / s border guards at 4! BTR-60PB). And his strength expired due to loss of personnel and problems with ammunition! At the same time, the PLA increased its attacks by introducing new units into the battle to three infantry companies ... The head of the Imansky (later Dalnerechensky) Border Detachment of military unit 2488, Colonel D.V. Leonov, requested help from the leadership (for cooperation in accordance with the Agreement) Far Eastern Military District SA in the form of a mandatory reinforced combined arms support regiment. He was denied WITHOUT ARGUMENTATION! Then he arrived at the headquarters of the regiment of the SA Far Eastern Military District and demanded that he be raised by alarm and brought to the defense of the state border, where the border moto group was killed, again a refusal! The only thing the army team gave was a tank platoon (4 T-62 tanks), BUT (!) ONLY WITH MECHANISTS AND WITHOUT CREWS !!! The colonel himself led a tank platoon to the clash site, but not knowing how to control the tank units he led the tanks to the shore of Ussuri, where his lead tank was instantly hit by recoilless guns and RPG-2 grenade launchers, and fragments inside the tank, Colonel Democrat Leonov was killed! A few days, his body could not be removed from the tank !!! And there was a real threat of his capture, by the Chinese !!!
    So we are border guards, we will forever remember the comrade Lieutenant General of the tank forces, the hero of the Great Patriotic War - O. Losik and his headquarters of the Far Eastern Military District, THIS IS A TRIETION !!!
    Eternal Glory to the border guards and soldiers of the Soviet Army - the defenders of Our Homeland, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics!

    Either in the late 70s, or in the early 80s, in the War Book store, I bought a small booklet about Chinese militarist revisionists. I bought it precisely because of several pages dedicated to the border conflict on Damansky Island.
    It also told about the unsightly side of those battles, about the mutilated corpses of our border guards. Such a Maoist beast, in every possible way mocked the corpses and brutally tortured, killed the wounded!
    I look at the pictures in the Chinese pantheon of fame on the current Chinese island, and the relentless thought is that among these "heroes" are those who gave orders to torture and finish off our wounded border guards, and those who sadistically executed them ... and I don’t have to these Chinese "heroes" no reverence, although so many years have passed.
    I remember when I lived with my grandmother in the village, they were anxiously listening to the radio (they hadn’t bought a TV yet) and were waiting for the Izvestia daily newspaper to find out about the events on Damansky — nobody wanted a war with China, still bitter memories of The Great Patriotic War (and the boys and I were playing the war with old rusty rifles found on the field or in the sprawled trenches ...), everyone understood that if the war happened, it would not seem to anyone, although 100% confidence was in our victory .. .
    My classmate said that after entering the Sevastopol Higher Naval Engineering School they were shown a secret newsreel about those events, he said that the land on the Chinese coast was like a moon landscape, everything was melted after shelling by “Grads”, because they fired shells with termite warhead ...
    In the 70s, among Soviet youth, on informal gatherings with a guitar, a sad song about a guy, a soldier who died in Damansky was popular: "I'm leaving, the boy said, through sadness, but not for long, you just wait and I'll be back ..... the name will melt in the snow. " Although the name Damansky never sounded in the song, but then everyone knew who they were singing about.
    At home for a long, long time, until leaving for school, the magazine “Spark” was kept about those events, with a portrait of Hero of the Soviet Union Yuri Babansky on the cover and a story about him and his comrades. And I remember well the picture, for the entire magazine spread, a panorama of Damansky and against a snowy background, the silhouettes of our border guards a moment before their vile execution — this is one of the last shots in the camera of the deceased Defender of our border.
    Although a lot has happened since then, but I never forgot about them ...
    Eternal Memory of the Fallen and Good Health to the Living Defenders of our Fatherland!
