Dmitry Ovcharenko: the hero who hacked two dozen fascists with an ax

87
This is absolutely incredible. история 13 took place on July 1941, near the town of Arctic Fox in the Khmelnitsky region of Ukraine. Then the Germans were rapidly advancing, the ever-changing front line was so broken that at times it was unknown who you were running into at the next turn.


One of these unexpected meetings for centuries glorified the native of Lugansk region, Dmitry Ovcharenko, who with a simple ax and several grenades made the Nazis 50 run in panic, while “chopping” two officers and 21 soldiers into the cabbage.

Dmitry Ovcharenko: the hero who hacked two dozen fascists with an ax


The ordinary son of a carpenter

Dmitry was a strong peasant. Born in 1919 in the present Lugansk region, in the village of Ovcharovo. In the village there was only an elementary school, but Dmitry did not aspire to universities, the character was not the same. After completing five classes, he went to his father's collective farm, following the rule: where he was born, it was useful there.

From his youth working in the field, Dima grew up to be a strong, hardy guy. And then the father took the guy to his carpentry workshop. According to the stories of fellow villagers, the boy was everywhere in his place. And in the company, and in work, and in school, especially if it came to work with your hands.

So he mastered the carpentry tool with ease. Moreover, Dima was familiar with the woodwork from childhood - he used to often help his father on trifles. Now he was approached as an adult with a request to put a bathhouse, to renew the crowns in the house, and to build the house itself.



A good carpenter has always been worth its weight in gold, especially in times when socialist competition went everywhere and everywhere, and everything was full of slogans “Five Year Plan in Three Years” and “You Give It!” So ​​Dmitry's future was almost predetermined.

A strong business executive and a man respected on the collective farm would have come out of it. A light, fervent character allowed Dimka to have dizzying success with girls. So that without a family the guy would not stay. It remained to serve in the army and upon returning to think about the family and their own home.

In 1939, Ovcharenko was drafted into the ranks of the Red Army. By the time the Nazi troops attacked the Soviet Union, he had already been a well-trained fighter for two years and was famously controlling a machine gun.

Fighter of the Red Army

Dmitry was lucky and unlucky at the same time. In the first days of the war, in the meat grinder that was going on in Western Ukraine and in Moldova, thousands died. The Soviet Army did not yet know how to resist, while the Wehrmacht’s soldiers already had vast experience of offensive, honed in the territory of European countries conquered before the attack on the Union.

In one of these fierce battles under the Moldovan Balti wounded Dmitry. But it was wounded easily, nothing mortal - not to send to the rear, not to leave in the ranks. So, a torn wound, stitched, bandaged, twitch less, and heal. The guy was adapted to transport ammunition. They gave a horseman, a cart, showed a warehouse in the town of Arctic Fox, handed the appropriate papers.

Dmitry was a responsible person, he did not let his comrades in, the warehouses had not yet been either blown up or evacuated, so there was something to fight. So on July 1941 day of the year, when there were battles for the city of Balti, the Ovcharenko cart once again left the city and rumbled on the ground broken by the explosions.

The best defense is offense.

The ammunition was packed under a tarp and intended for a machine-gun company, where Dmitry served. The entire 4-5 was left for the location of the unit, but suddenly two trucks with German soldiers emerged from around the corner.

One of the three escort officers approached Dmitri, knocked out a rifle and ordered to show what was in the cart. Dmitry obediently went to the cart and threw the tarp. But Ovcharenko did not intend to give ammunition to the Germans. No one expected what happened next.

The fighter snatched the ax lying there from under the tarpaulin and with one blow blew the officer's head off. Three grenades one after the other flew towards the car. Chaos began. 21 German was killed, the rest fled. Furious, Ovcharenko chased the second officer with an ax, caught up with him in the gardens and cut off his head just like the first. Dmitry simply did not find the third officer - he did not wait to be remembered about him.



Panic is an interesting thing. From the surprise and unreality of what was happening in the ensuing confusion, not a single German soldier thought to use his own against Ovcharenko weapons.

Maybe everything would have been different, and we would never know about Dmitry Ovcharenko, but when suddenly among the peaceful picture suddenly shouts and explosions sounded, the driver of the second truck just “hit the gas” and retreated, taking about half of those present.

The rest are less fortunate. The raging Ovcharenko crumbled the wounded with an ax like cabbage. He had no mercy on the enemy. And then no one spoke about humanism.


Balti city after 1941 fights, Moldova

Provocateur or German agent?

Ovcharenko's ammunition was brought intact and on time. But at the same time, as he was, covered in blood, he drove into the headquarters and handed over to the commanders all the documents, charts and maps that he had found at the soldiers and officers he had killed.

The headquarters did not believe the fighter's story, especially since Dmitri was delayed with returning for a couple of hours, and everyone was already thinking about whether the convoy had died and whether he had deserted. And the one and the other was not uncommon in the early days of the war. But Dmitry nevertheless appeared, and in the headquarters it was decided that the fighter was simply making excuses for being late and tells stories in an attempt to avoid punishment.

But the bloody uniform, the brought papers and soldier's medallions nevertheless forced the command of the unit to check the words of Ovcharenko. Ovcharenko himself was taken into custody just in case. They equipped the mobile reconnaissance unit, which, upon return, confirmed the words of the soldier. At the same time they brought an ax that had become legendary and forgotten by Dmitry on stump.

Because of the rush around the documents brought and the general confusion of those days, Ovcharenko, forgotten by all, spent three days in custody. He was remembered and released only after they realized that they would have to retreat.

The reward will wait ...

Maps helped a lot in the rapidly changing battlefield environment. But Dmitry was awarded for this unprecedented feat then. The command recalled him in August of the same year, when the name Ovcharenko once again emerged among many submitted for awards.

After the incident with the ax some two weeks passed, and Ovcharenko was already in the ranks. He simply escaped from the hospital to the unit, even though because of the exercises with an ax, he had to rewrite the already healed wound, because of which he was transferred in his time to the wagons.

Each person was counted, and even died by the thousands, so they looked through their fingers at the violation of the charter and brought the soldier back to the machine gun platoon. Only now as a machine gunner. In the battles for the height of 239,8, Ovcharenko proved himself a hero again, not allowing the Nazis to lift their heads off the ground.

... but will find a hero

It was then that Lieutenant-General Ryabyshev and a member of the military council, Cornius, signed a warrior's presentation to a well-deserved reward: the title - Hero of the Soviet Union.


Presentation of Dmitry Ovcharenko to the title of Hero of the Soviet Union

Only 9 in November 1941 of the Year by the Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR “for the exemplary performance of the combat tasks of the command on the front of the fight against the German fascist invaders and for showing courage and heroism”, Ovcharenko Dmitry Romanovich was awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union.

In the future, Dmitry Ovcharenko fought like everyone else, especially didn’t put his head under the bullets, but wasn’t noticed in cowardice either. He was not very friendly with discipline, so he remained a simple soldier who liked to go AWOL, drink a little and tell young people some military tales.



Young replenishment on halts loved to listen to the story of his feat, which each time was accompanied by new details, richly flavored with strong words.

The fighter failed to live up to the great Victory for only three months. In the battles for Hungary, Dmitry was badly wounded and died at the 28 hospital in January 1945. In his native village, a countryman is remembered and honored, his monument always has flowers, and the street bears his name.

    Soviet army she still couldn’t resist, while the Wehrmacht soldiers already had vast experience of the offensive, honed on the territory of European countries conquered before the attack on the Union.

    Then there was the Red Army, not the SA.

    The village of Arctic fox was symbolic for the Germans. yes
    A heroic guy, such people could have been saved by the end of the war: there were only a few of them who had fought since the 41st, and even in the infantry!

    Three grenades one after the other flew towards the car. Chaos began. 21 German was killed, the rest fled. ...
    ,, from the same series ,,,
    Acting with a sword, Ogurtsov personally killed eight Fritz, but then, realizing their numerical superiority, the Germans rushed at Ogurtsov and knocked him down from his horse. Then Ogurtsov hit one of the Germans with a PCA butt. The German was killed, but the box of the machine gun split in half. The other German, Ogurtsov, threw himself on the ground and bit his throat with his teeth. Suddenly a tank entered the battle, moving at the tail of the column and unnoticed by the Cossacks. Cucumber throwing a grenade because of a wounded German self-propelled gun, brought the tank down. The crew of the Cossacks also completely destroyed. In this battle, 30 vehicles with cargo, two self-propelled guns, one tank, eight motorcycles, three guns and more than two thousand shells were taken as trophies.

      Everyone who has served in the army knows that everyone from the squad leader to the unit commander and on, often exaggerate the results of the task. For what? I think everyone understands. It is enough to recall the Great Maneuvers in KOVO in the 30s. When the actions of all the military branches were rehearsed until the last minute. Food, uniforms, fuel were hidden in each farm. Everyone received awards, promotions ... Foreign guests liked everything ... And then at Khalkhin-Gol, in Finland and in June 1941, it turned out that the infantry, tankmen and pilots, with rare exceptions, absolutely could not coordinate their actions. To justify their incompetence, many commanders came up with stories about the hordes of fascists and a brave soldier, who alone (maximum three) knocked out 20 tanks, 50 cars, destroyed 300 fascists. This information went above. Accordingly, decisions were made on incentives. By the way, by the end of the summer of 1941, an order of GKO required
      documentary evidence of exploits. But until the very end of the war, this defect in the army was never eliminated.

        Exactly - such a sight whom you want to enter into a stupor!)) If the enemy is stunned for a few seconds, then this time is golden for victory.
        I remember, around the year of 1973-74, on May 9, there were festivities on the main square of the city. People. as usual, he was subtle, which led to clashes. One of them was simply amazing: I see that there are two rows of opponents face to face, 6-7 people on each side. In the center, two ringleaders are trying to verbally find out whose eggs are cooler. Suddenly, one of them with a powerful hook to the right literally blows the enemy and he gets lost at the feet of the crowd around him. All around froze for a moment ... but not a hero. For a couple of seconds, he roared a kite along the opposite row, repeating his smashing blow and ALL enemies flew away after his leader. It is good that the twin brothers grabbed this Achilles under the white arms and abruptly led away in an unknown direction, otherwise he would, by inertia, begin to mow nothing innocent spectators ...
        I remember his crazy eyes when they dragged him away, it's just some kind of horror ... And if you still give him grenades and an ax, it's even scary to imagine the scale of the consequences ... Hiroshima is resting ...

      Sometimes in life such incredible situations happen without any exaggeration. It is more likely true here, political instructors usually do not have such a fantasy.
      The panic of the Germans is quite understandable by the way. They are used to waiting for a threat from something more high-tech. They could easily endure shooting or bombing. And here is the ax. In addition, they were most likely in a relaxed state. There are a lot of them, they are with weapons, and here a lone soldier with a horse, Rus-Ivan, also lost a rifle without resistance - what is there to fear. And when the situation changed dramatically, and even with the participation of an ax (which is not a typical scene for the Germans at all) they could go nuts so much that they did not provide decent resistance.

          In this case, there is an award sheet with a sufficiently detailed description of the feat and until evidence of his falsification is presented, I consider it inappropriate to dispute the facts set forth in it. Even if they sound not too realistic.

      Thirty-year-old Polish peasant Krzysztof Azninsky became the winner of the 1996 Darwin Prize with almost no struggle. Almost everyone who took part in the vote gave him preference.
      It happened so. Together with friends Krzysztof celebrated his imminent wedding. When one of the guests invited everyone to undress naked and “play for the last time,” everyone immediately agreed. At first, the guys ran after each other with frozen turnips in their hands and tried to hit their partner more painfully. However, then someone saw a chainsaw. A friend (and according to some information, the future best man of Krzysztof) grabbed her and said that he would show what real men could do. Before the friends had time to look around, he turned on the saw and grabbed his foot. This is where the finest hour of Krzysztof arrived. With a cry, “Think, the foot is nonsense! Is it so weak? ” in the blink of an eye he cut off his head.
      “All this is strange,” later recalled one of Krzysztof's friends. “As a child, he loved to go to his elder sister’s underwear. And he died like a real man. " Because of this phrase, the Darwin Committee is now following with particular attention the reports from Poland: there are probably people left there who can do something in the style of Mr. Krzysztof.

    As Leo Tolstoy wrote in his novel War and Peace: “with simplicity and ease, he picks up the first club he comes across and nails with it until in his heart his sense of insult and revenge is replaced by contempt and pity.”
    But here Ovcharenko certainly did not have pity.

    It was a terrible time ... In each direction of the defense of the Red Army, heroes were required. To boost morale. So then Ovcharenko appeared. Lieutenant General Ryabyshev Dmitry Ivanovich was appointed commander of the Southern Front only on August 26, 1941. The photo shows a draft order on awarding and, if you look, you can notice the absence of signatures of the Com Front and a member of the Military Council. Also missing date. Further. Not a single German truck of those years could accommodate more than 12-15 people, especially with weapons. Personally stood next to the Opel Blitz! There is no confirmation either from our side or from the German one. And so on ... One of the readers correctly noticed about the Soviet Army. I’ll add on my own - the 1941 Red Army still knew how to defend itself. If it were defending itself as the French under Maginot, as the British under Dunkirk, you and I would not have been. Odessa stood until October 1941, Sevastopol until July 1942. In the Murmansk sector, the Germans were not able to cross the USSR State Border.

          In general, this story (like many others) appeared much later than the death of I.V. Stalin. To convince the people that the main contribution to the Victory was not made by the leadership of the USSR, but namely the PEOPLE! The history of the world proves the opposite: without a strong leader, even the most developed nation is doomed.

The document itself must be signed by the front commander and a member of the Military Council, Lieutenant General Ryabyshev commanded the Southern Front from 26.08 to 05.10.1941. That is, in the original presentation, I draw your attention to the front commander sent a presentation to the title of Hero of the Soviet Union, there should be signatures of all applicants for this presentation.

      In a sense, we defended in the 41st no better than the French, from the borders of the Reich to Paris and to Minsk the distance was the same and the Germans walked it on almost the same schedule and with the same tactics. Rather, on the contrary, if the French and others would fight to the end, maybe the story with Ovcharenko would be different or not happen at all.

    Did the author notice that his description and the description in the award sheet do not match?
    Of course, no one would believe that there were no wounded people for 21 dead from grenades, so they had to expand the canon with details, usually three times more wounded than those killed in general, especially since they threw grenades near one of the cars, and not both, they surrounded him.
    On the other hand, who would believe that there was no lightly wounded man who did not calmly wait for his turn and did not try to shoot, and all the more so as they calmly looked in the second car at how their comrades methodically killed them, then fled and didn’t even then returned to this place ....
    At VIF, it seems, he read that at that time in those places our Germans mixed strongly, so that somehow a bag with documents of the wounded from the field hospital got to him.
    IMHO, a more real explanation than the canonical.

        another surprises me.
        in his article, the hero turns into a war criminal killing helpless wounded - this is exactly what the Nazis accused the Soviet side.
        This is not in the award documents, in other articles on this subject I have not read this either.
        The question arises, whose idea was to make him a killer of the wounded?
        and the second question naturally arises - but what, he could not take any of the wounded prisoners and bring for interrogation, he didn’t walk on foot.

    The writer, and who is this junior commander of the Workers 'and Peasants' Red Fleet which you have placed in the first photo?
    And who is this last? do you mind if I'm from Wikipedia, without your merit, I’ll post a biography of the hero that you wrote about with your article?
    He was born in the USSR in 1919 in the village of Ovcharovo, Kharkov province (now in the Troitsky district of the Luhansk region) in a peasant family. Dmitry's father was a rural carpenter.
    Primary education - 5 classes. He worked on a collective farm. In 1939 he was drafted into the Red Army.
    On the fronts of World War II from the first days. In the very first days of the war, Dmitry was slightly injured, and he was transferred from a combat unit by a sled to an ammunition depot.
    On July 13, 1941, in battles in the area of ​​the city of Balti (Moldova), when delivering ammunition to his company near the town of Pesets (Khmelnytsky region), a machine-gun company of the 389th rifle regiment of the 176th rifle division of the 9th Army of the Southern Front, Red Army D. R. Ovcharenko suddenly ran into a detachment of 50 enemy soldiers and officers. At the same time, the enemy managed to seize his rifle. However, D.R. Ovcharenko was not at a loss and, grabbing an ax from the wagon, chopped off the head of the officer questioning him, threw 3 grenades at the enemy soldier, killing 21 soldiers. The rest fled in panic. Then he caught up with the second officer in the garden of the town of Polar fox and also chopped off his head. The third officer managed to escape. Then he collected documents and maps from the dead and arrived with the cargo in the company.
    Soon Dmitry was reinstated as a machine gunner and continued to fulfill his military duty. The command noted the high morale of the fighter, who on July 27 at an altitude of 239,8 with his heavy machine-gun fire set an example as a comrade.

    On August 3, assessing the scale of the feat, the commander of the 389th Infantry Regiment, Major S. V. Kramskoy and the military commissar, senior political instructor Zekin, sent a performance to D. R. Ovcharenko for the highest award - the title of Hero of the Soviet Union].
    Representation of Dmitry Ovcharenko to the title of Hero of the Soviet Union, signed by the commander of the Southern Front, Lieutenant General D. I. Ryabyshev and member of the Military Council L. R. Korniyets
    By decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR 9 of November 1941, "for exemplary performance of combat missions of command on the front of the fight against the German fascist invaders and showing courage and heroism" Red Army Ovcharenko Dmitry Romanovich was awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union with the award of the Order of Lenin and the medal "Golden Star".

    In the battles for the liberation of Hungary in the area of ​​Sheregeyesh station, machine gunner of the 3rd Tank Brigade, Private D. R. Ovcharenko, was seriously wounded. He died of wounds in the hospital on January 28, 1945 (according to other sources, he died in battle and was not buried, as he remained in the territory occupied by the enemy).

    As we can see again, this writer, distinguished himself, not only does he appear to be personally present in the treatment of a slight injury to Dmitry Ovcharenko, as he described it
    So, lacerations, sewn up, bandaged, twitch less, and heal.

    True, the biography indicates that the Hero of the events described was wounded in the early days of the war, and near Balti he had already completed his feat, and not on one of the July days, but specifically on 13 07.
    Then our writer Roman Zablotsky writes
    Maps helped a lot in the rapidly changing battlefield environment. But Dmitry was awarded for this unprecedented feat then. The command recalled him in August of the same year, when the name Ovcharenko once again emerged among many submitted for awards.

    The comrade does not represent the award system in the USSR at all, but the period he describes in particular, but I will return to this later. In the meantime, further text. The writer says
    After the incident with the ax some two weeks passed, and Ovcharenko was already in the ranks. He simply escaped from the hospital to the unit, even though because of the exercises with an ax, he had to rewrite the already healed wound, because of which he was transferred in his time to the wagons.
    Each person was counted, and they died in their thousands, so the authorities looked through their fingers at the violation of the charter and returned the soldier to the machine-gun platoon. Only now as a machine gunner. In the battles for the height of 239,8 Ovcharenko again proved to be a hero,

    One way or another it was not said that the Hero, after this clash, was taken to the hospital from which he escaped, well, let’s leave it on the conscience of the author, who for the sake of a word ... In my biography, it is said that on July 27 the command noted ... you know, it turns out that two weeks later, Dmitry Ovcharenko distinguished himself again, and on August 3 the regiment’s command. I clarify for the writer, the regiment’s command sent an idea of ​​assigning the Red Army Ovcharenko the title of Hero of the Soviet Union,
    Lieutenant General Ryabyshev and a member of the military council Korniyets signed a representation of a fighter for a well-deserved award: the title is Hero of the Soviet Union.

    Lieutenant General Ryabyshev became the commander of the Southern Front on 26/08/1941, well, this is me to increase the knowledge of the writer of the article, so after the presentation for the highest award from the regiment went, it goes through several higher authorities, it can be different variations of the type of division -army-front and then higher spheres. The title was assigned on November 9, 1941 almost immediately after the presentation. This is considering the chaos of retreat, the lack of high-speed Internet and free Wi-Fi.
    And now we’re looking at sucking up the brain bone, that is, what was on Wikipedia, and only two acts of the Hero described in 1941 are described there, our writer puks and was blown away, where he does not know to search for a description of the Hero’s further military path, he doesn’t try, yes by and large and can not. So I read something on Wikipedia, wrote an exposition on this topic and am content. The feeling is that this writer Roman Zablotsky is actually just a transmission link, and the worst is between Wikipedia and the Military Review. And once again I would like to ask the Writer, whose photographs he placed under the numbers 1 and 3 in this article ?.
    I give a hint, Ro-oh-ohm, the first photo in the comment has a signature, let's answer for the last one.

      What is the point of answering me if you always know everything? By the way, your humor smacks of rottenness, as well as complete trust in one source, and ignoring others.
      In order to improve your mood even more, I suggest you write your vision of this story and publish it on the VO website.
      Then we will be able to measure the knowledge and ability to submit information. And the fact that my articles arouse interest not only among specialists like you is not at all a swagger.
      I sincerely wish that your reprints from textbooks of the Soviet period also read and discussed a lot. But I won't give you that pleasure. Cook in your own pot lol
      The swagger, especially the completely illiterate and unprofessional, smacks the comments of you and your wife.
      And finally. At first I considered you to be adequate, although absolutely not well-versed in journalism. I even tried to explain elementary concepts on my fingers. But I see that it is impossible to convey information to a person whose brain, mouth and hands are only open to the exit.
      I really hope that you step on the throat of your own pride and stop reading my articles, since they are so stupid (from your point of view). This way you can draw less attention of adequate readers to them, who now also have the opportunity to have fun. lol

          You are an interesting person. That rude and appeal to you, then softly go to you, puffing his lips in incomprehensible grievances.
          I will try to personally explain to you for the last time on your fingers.
          I do not see the point of answering the silliest questions and systemic provocations of people who represent absolutely nothing of themselves.
          There are people who do something. They must make mistakes. This is normal and not a problem at all.
          And there are mediocrity and criticism, who can only write abominations and notice the shortcomings of others. This is due to their chronic stupidity and unwillingness to do something.
          Such people notice the mote in another's eye, but do not see the logs in their own. Although this is understandable, if from the inside of the frontal bone they have a callus from the cap, the thickness of the 4 finger. So where does the void in the skull box come from?
          Personally, you are absolutely not interested in me. Neither as an interlocutor, nor as a critic. It is important that the caravan continues to go, no matter how mongrels bark.
          It is much more important for me that my articles, which are popular and not reference, are read by normal people with pleasure. This is indicated by the performance views.
          And I advise you to try to do it yourself in life at least something. Then maybe my attitude towards you will change.
          For possible critics of my post, I’ll say right away that this person from the very moment I appeared on the site decided to become my personal control. So I have every right to call him who he really is.
          And this I still do not use all the possibilities of my, believe me, very rich speech.
          By the way, before using the word graphomaniac, at least read in various sources what it means. This term really suits many authors of this site who consider themselves to be journalists and authors simply by rewriting reference books.
          But I do not even call them so hurt. Because at least they DO something, and not just balabols.

Moreover, at the expense of the last photo, I agree that in many reprints they indicate that this is Dmitry Ovcharenko, although in some they write that it is probably Dmitry Ovcharenko, and the most interesting thing for all reprinters, none have a description of the further military path of Dmitry Ovcharenko, after events described. It turns out, so grabbed for an extract from the award sheet, and went to "re-sing" who is what much. Not caring about what is consistent with the fact, but what is tricked by the previous re-release. We would have found it and described how this person lived and fought in the future, it would be real respect and many thanks to you. And it’s not even known how he died ...

      Bull's-eye . Now imagine 50 fascists, many of whom have vast experience in the war, leaving Ivan and his officer in private to talk, riding on a cart full of ammunition. Happened? I do not have. We continue. Ivan is tired of talking, he grabs a spatula and blows his head off to the adversary. The Germans are stunned by such impudence, look in horror at Ivan, who at that time screwed fuses into the RGD-33, makes a combat platoon, chooses the place of landing of two grenades. Throws ... Not having time to run away and wounded finishes with a shovel. Rambo is resting ... The expansion of the fragments of the RGD-33 is 25-40 meters. The time of bringing into combat condition is 8-10 seconds. Somehow far away were the soldiers from the commander. Yes, and Ivan himself was not injured. According to the statutes of the Wehrmacht, the interrogation could not be carried out by one person. In any case, there was one soldier with the officer, and his weapon was clearly aimed at the prisoner. As a child, I heard and read a lot about the exploits of Alexander Matrosov, Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya, 28 Panfilov’s, heroes of the Brest Fortress ... But Ovcharenko heard about the exploit for the first time in the early 2000s. Ukrainian. Bogatyr. One left. Doesn’t resemble anything?

        But the fact remains that a fighter got a Hero for the feat.

    Recently, the film was watched with a similar plot - a man, an ax, a cartload of shells, etc. on a cart, a bunch of chopped Fritz. Smolyakov in the title role. Only here he was not from the peasants, a noble bone.

    Apparently, a nobleman marries that he famously owns an ax.

    The author liked it, there are 2 grenades behind the belt visible. It could well be an ax ...

    And binoculars, to better see the runaway German? I myself noticed that the photos are some kind of "left".

    Dear forum users hi Dear author hi ,,,
    Why in all this feat did I feel a sense of understatement what Hero from the first year, went through almost the entire war and had no more awards? Using the resource "Memory of the People" I found three documents on Ovcharenko D.R. 1919. Decree and award on the GSS, arrival on the runway (military post office), report on irretrievable losses. All three documents combine the data of name, year and place of birth, place of call.
    What do you think has the right to the existence of a version that as a result of some kind of crime Ovcharenko D.R. got on the runway? And therefore his feat was not widely publicized during the Soviet era?

      Quite possible. When I was looking for materials for the article, I wondered what kind of person it was. That hero is not a hero. Your version is very interesting.

      hi Comrade Bubalik, but don’t go to your grandmother either, IMHO was surrounded by Dmitry Ovcharenko and remained in the occupied territory ?! How did he survive at this time — God knows ?!
      He was again drafted into the ranks of the Red Army only after the liberation of Ukrainian territory from Hitler’s invaders, in 1944, by the Chistyakovsky RVK of the Stalin Region of the Ukrainian SSR, why is his combat path unknown between 1941 and 1944?
