War chronicles: the loss of Grozny in August 1996

Year 1996. Chechnya The federal forces again suffer losses. The militants not only show resistance, but they manage to take the cities that previously came under the control of federal forces. It turned out that one and the same locality had to fight repeatedly and pay for all these battles with losses - including after the city came under virtually complete control.


War chronicles: the loss of Grozny in August 1996


War correspondent Alexander Sladkov on his channel "Sladkov +" presents a film about the August battles for Grozny (battles of the 1996 of the year). The militants under the command of Shamil Basayev and Aslan Maskhadov managed to take virtually all of Grozny, inflicting a tangible defeat on the federal forces.

In the film by Alexander Sladkov, General Konstantin Pulikovsky, reflecting on the causes of the defeat and loss of Grozny, talks about the poor organization of the defense of the city. Participants in the events note that Grozny was flooded with troops, but there was still no effective coordination of actions after more than a year and a half of the war. Despite the presence of numerous roadblocks, their effectiveness was low, including due to the choice of location.

The militants leaked into the city from several directions, including posing as refugees. The main task that the terrorists set themselves was to capture the central part of the city - where command posts and buildings of power departments were concentrated.

The film presents shots that were shot by Russian troops - literally under fire.

      In the 90s, Russia was nightmare from the incompetent management of traitorous drunkards. Land in peace and eternal memory to the guys who did not return from that war ...

          Earth in fluff ... or glassy .... These are all "echoes of pagan beliefs"! For Orthodoxy, the main thing is the soul! But the soul does not matter what the earth will be! It is important to realize that innocent souls will go to heaven, and sinners will go to hell ...

            I do not agree with you Vladimir. The rite of burial in Orthodoxy is strictly defined. All the “priests” insist on burial in the LIGHTED cemetery, with their heads to the west - facing east ... By your logic, Vladimir, you can’t even take the dead from the battlefield. About the "echoes of pagan beliefs" - it is better to wait for the Last Judgment lying on the "downy feather bed", and not standing in the "queue".

              I don’t have such a “logic”: not to bury the dead (deceased) and I didn’t talk about it! The question of burial is primarily a matter of showing respect for the dead, recognition of their rights to preserve human dignity even after death! Which is enshrined in more than one religion ...

                "... let the earth rest in peace ..." - a manifestation of respect for the deceased (in most cases on duty). Most recalls the soul "on its deathbed." When you wrote Vladimir: "But the soul does not matter what the earth will be!" - everyone else understands this - "... you can not bury ..."

                  SIMPLE QUESTIONS TO THE PRIEST: "THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN" or "THE EARTH INTO THE FLOW"?
                  Questions were answered by Priest Andrei Bezruchko, rector of the St. Nicholas Church in Voskresensk, clergyman of the Church of the Resurrection of Christ, the village of Voskresenskoye.
                  - How to say: "Kingdom to him be Heaven" or "May the earth be in peace for him"?
                  - The Orthodox Christian will always say: “The kingdom be with him,” and the atheist says: “May the earth be a fluff to him,” because he does not believe in the kingdom of heaven, but, although he wished for something good, let his kindred will say. But the Orthodox Christian needs to be told correctly: "The kingdom be upon him."

                    I read the story on artofwar.ru, I forgot the name and I don’t remember the author of course. Summary. A reporter for a newspaper (or TV channel) arrives in Grozny in the spring of 2000. The city has already been taken by the Russian army. A reporter travels around the city, at the station he is shown several refrigerated wagons filled to the top with the bodies of our soldiers (Russia) who died. The cars were left at the station in August 1996, when federal troops left the city. The total death toll is approximately 132 ... I am writing from memory. The reporter requires the military authorities to bury the dead, threatening to inform the press about this "find". FSB officers (I write from memory) agree to bury the soldiers "quietly", wagons disappear from the station. The reporter is assured that all the dead are buried. The reporter, the author of the story, writes at the end that he doubts the circumstances of the “funeral”, he did not see the graves or the “mass grave”. I don’t know the truth of the story, you will find the story on the Art Of War website - read ...

                      Let us recall and remember the dead soldiers of the Russian army who died during the New Year's Storm on December 31, 1994. Many of them are unidentified, many of the remains are buried in ruins and during the restructuring of the city remained somewhere there ...

                      You know, I will not question the story you brought. But knowing the mentality of the Chechens, I think that these cars are unlikely to have been in Grozny for 5 years. I think that. I do not want to convince you and I will not. Therefore, he wrote the previous post.

      Communication, communication, communication ... the eternal disease of our army. 1941, just an indescribable catastrophe and again in 1996, almost in the 21st century, a failure. Georgia 2008 and again the connection.

    A battle-worthy man is not a "refugee". The presence of "epaulet" - does not make a man combat ready. In August 1996, the Russian army won - the Kremlin capitulated ...

    without betrayal could not have done. But still there is the fault of high commanders and generals who could not organize the military operations of the troops as expected.

    And why did neither Pulikovsky nor Sladkov be named after the owner of that hand, "which stopped Pulikovsky"?
    Strange.
    Really the one who changed the course of history is still alive and well. Or worse, is he also in power?

      It seems like the militant group has already been calculated, there were plans to block it. But ..... Sparka did everything - Berezovsky and Swan. Not a single second in this world. I hope they asked there, at least from Swan, from a military general.

      Truth! And even after that there was no threat of general defeat. Pretty quickly they took control of most of Grozny. And the betrayal was longer. We were all ready to recapture 4 districts. Or 5. But there was a conspiracy. I hate the swan!

    Honor and glory to the fighters who have folded their heads for us, living now. Many do not even understand this. Money ..mafia ... Birch with a Swan. They fought for us, for mothers and classmates, neighbors on the porch and just passers-by on the street living a peaceful life. For me, their feat is equally significant as a victory at Stalingrad or the capture of Berlin. These are the soldiers of great Russia who gave their lives for it. We must not forget the feat of the heroes of those years. It is necessary to recall them and to teach the young generation to love their homeland more than their lives by their examples. This is the whole thing ..

    Yes, a lot of things were there ...
    Then they all surrendered, abandoned.
    Then they took and ...
    Now the territory, with special conditions and its individual laws ...
