Feat captain special forces

Heroes, selflessly defending our country, are striking in their courage and courage. Through the photo exhibition "Heroes of Russia, which nobody saw them," the Charity Foundation "Memory of Generations" shows people who performed real feats. 25 incredibly strong spirit of men became participants in an unusual project that tells them stories residents of more than 30 cities of Russia. Among the heroes of the photo project is Major Igor Zadorozhny, who showed incredible courage in the operation with the group of Typhoon special forces.

Igor Sergeevich served in the Far Eastern District of the Interior Ministry troops. He went 4 times on business trips to Chechnya and during that time took part in more than 150 special operations and 80 reconnaissance routes.

In 2003, Zadorozhny was the commander of the reconnaissance group of the Typhoon special forces detachment. On January 23, his group found and surrounded a fortified militant base near the village of Yalkhoi-Mokh. The commandos summoned an artillery fire and thwarted the enemy’s attempt to break through and hide in the forest. The militants returned to the camp and occupied the defense, and the group realized that it was dealing with a well-trained and armed gang.

Igor Zadorozhny gave the order to his subordinates to leave the battlefield to avoid numerous losses, while he himself and two scouts headed for the base to adjust the fire. At the same time, the gang made a new attempt to leave the encirclement, and the three fighters engaged them in battle. Risking his life, Zadorozhny caused artillery fire on himself and received a heavy concussion, but, seeing that the militants rushed into the forest, he organized the pursuit. During the operation, near the captain the explosive bomb was blown up, and he received severe shrapnel wounds, but continued command. As a result, the gang was completely destroyed. Comrades took out Zadorozhny from the battlefield and sent him to a hospital. After being wounded by the captain, the doctors had to amputate both his legs and right arm.

By decree of the President of the Russian Federation on November 11, 2003, for courage and heroism shown in the performance of military duty, captain Zadorozhny Igor Sergeyevich was awarded the high title of Hero of the Russian Federation.
While in the hospital, Igor Sergeevich found out that he had been given the knowledge of a major. Even before the end of treatment, he contacted the colonel and said that he wanted to continue his service. In the spring of 2004, Major Zadorozhny completed the treatment and became the head of the Inquiry Unit in the Moscow Special Forces "Rus". He didn’t fly to the hot spots anymore, and he was fired in stock in 2008, when the squad was completely disbanded.

Now Igor Zadorozhny lives with his family in Moscow and is actively involved in social activities: the development of methods for the rehabilitation of people with physical disabilities, the patriotic education of young people. Igor Sergeyevich also takes an active part in international cycling marathons. Having become a participant in the photo project “Heroes of Russia, which no one saw them”, the major in stock Zadorozhny gives the younger generation his experience and motivates them to achieve their goals.

      I have the deepest respect for Igor !!! And by the way, to write and talk about such people, real heroes, in my opinion, it is necessary not only on the patriotic website, but also on the central TV channels. What would be correct, I think.

        More than 20 years have passed since then. Chechnya is spoken less often than Afghanistan. But you can’t forget, you can’t not know.

      Right. From "what is there among Ukrainians" already sick, and articles like this - a breath of fresh air. Our propaganda has a strong bias towards the Second World War, and a bashful disregard for the Chechen wars. But the participants and heroes of those conflicts - here they are. Living monuments of masculinity and courage.

        The first article of this kind and it’s the first in general in bookmarks, since I’ve recently quoted
        What do German archival documents say about the exploits of Soviet soldiers during the Great Patriotic War?
        dated November 6, 2018. I have 25 articles in my bookmarks, some of which are about heroes. Three for sure from this cycle in which this article enters. I also collect videos about the modern heroes of Russia and the heroes of the Second World War. This is all for my children. I hope gave a comprehensive answer.

        P.S. Naturally I use not only this resource.

    Just a few decades ago, they wrote about such people "The Story of a Real Man", on which they were brought up ... for myself, it was like ... well, like the Bible, probably in the sense of the sacredness and indisputability of what was written. ... And now on what, or rather on whom, are the little ones brought up? Who is the object of imitation? .. Bloggers-schmogers are different and other peeling am Try to find the right landmarks in the sea of ​​different trash. For the state, patriotic education should be one of the first tasks. ..And Igor Sergeyevich is full to the ground for his heroic past and for his equally courageous present.

    I have the highest respect for everyone who fought in Afghanistan and the North Caucasus. among these people is my classmate Alexei Barinov, who had risen two Chechnya before lieutenant colonel VV, deputy commander of the unit. I put only one person from my class next to him, our wise guy, who has been calculating charges for 26 years. all the merits of my class put together, nothing near them, Soldier and Weaponsman

    The real hero of Russia! Glory! I was struck by the courage of this commando!
    "he gave the order to his subordinates to leave the battlefield in order to avoid numerous losses, and he himself with two scouts went to the base to adjust the fire" - These are Heroes who always take care of people, and do not spare themselves.

    They erected a monument in the village -Heroes of Afghanistan and other local conflicts. . The mayor asks. Well, how? I am silent. I do not like it. - I answer -I went to x. . The story of a man callsign Border .- Yesterday went to the King. The eighth time. Previously, did not miss. He took off the prosthesis - legs on the thigh and said obscenities, - do not let it go. I will kill him - I served as a kid in a platoon, a volunteer came from Volgograd, he served well and desperately. But once in intelligence they were ambushed and seriously wounded. He asked me to send him to Volgograd if he died. .A while writing a report, the clerk made a mistake and relatives in the homeland can not draw up death and other papers for the loss of a nurse. So they called and still couldn’t send corrections, it was only necessary to make an official correction paper in the ministry And Zema-Tsar (Minister of Defense under Zakharchenko) decided everything quickly and now my brother’s relatives are killed, he will receive the correct papers, otherwise I’ll not sleep for 3 years could the soul hurt ...

    Why instead of these people on TV show girls of questionable behavior, called for some reason "secular lionesses"?
    All sorts of thick-faced deputies and priests with cheeks lying on the shoulders of students how to live?
    When is the news that another excursionist sat on the string, for some reason, in the news feed?
    Kingdom of crooked mirrors .. The whole world has become them ..
