The last marshal of the Soviet Union Dmitry Yazov died in Moscow

The last marshal of the Soviet Union Dmitry Timofeevich Yazov died in Moscow after a long illness. It is reported by the Russian military.

According to the Ministry of Defense, a marshal passed away on February 96 in Moscow at the XNUMXth year of his life. The cause of death is a serious and prolonged illness.

Recall that Dmitry Timofeevich Yazov was the last Minister of Defense of the USSR. He held this post from 1987 to 1991 until the collapse of the Soviet Union. Yazov was also the last Soviet military commander to whom the rank of Marshal was awarded. He received this title in 1990.

The whole life of Dmitry Yazov was associated with the army. Born on November 8, 1924 in an ordinary peasant family, in 1942 he graduated from the Moscow Infantry School named after Of the Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR and went to war to the front, where he commanded a rifle platoon and company. He was wounded twice.

Then in 1956 he graduated with honors from the Military Academy. MV Frunze, and already in 1967 - the Military Academy of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the USSR.

He served in various positions from deputy battalion commander to army and district commander. After being transferred to the Ministry of Defense, he reached the Minister of Defense of the USSR and the rank of Marshal of the Soviet Union.

"Military Review" expresses condolences to the relatives and friends of the deceased.

        At 96m, he left. This is the health of Comrade Marshall. It’s amazing. Military service is not honey; centenarians are not often found.

            Exactly.
            Sokolov called me, and Yazov sent on a demobilization.
            Peace be upon you and land rest in peace, comrade Marshal of the Soviet Union!

    The only person who could save the Soviet Union, but at such a price that ... did not do it. Made the hardest choice in life. God will judge now.

      He could save, but as a result he destroyed it. Without the GKChP, which completely paralyzed the Soviet power vertical, Yeltsin and his comrades could not have dealt a mortal blow to the alliance. I have no good feelings for Yazov. As well as to the entire top of the 80s. I definitely won’t cry for him. Ready for the cons. Go ahead. am

    Good luck to Marshall in another world. But I was a ram only in the Troops and commanded a platoon, company, battalion. Although he rose to the colonel in civilian posts.

      He survived two wives, two children and a grandson .. Siberian, however.
      I had to meet (of course not personally) when Yazov commanded the KSAVO.
      I still remember his words: Comrades, commanders. Make the political officers work. And this was in 1981.
      And another UNIQUE case. Being the head of the automotive service of the Far Eastern Military District, I was also the FIRST Deputy Commander of the District.
      Peace be upon you, Legend.

        He commanded the 122th Guards Motor Rifle Division in Dauria. I myself certainly did not find him. But poplars planted with him in the town were alive. This is among the treeless bare steppes and hills, where every bush is a joy.
        He is a real Soldier. Everything else will be judged by God. Not for us to judge.

    from his poem:

    "In the battles for the honor of the Fatherland

    I spared neither strength nor life.

    And, having walked in the ranks for half a century,

    He was also a man. "
    Rest in peace!

    So Comrade Marshal Yazov went to our Great Glory ...
    And there, in its endless cloudy expanses, tables of an infinite length were set, at which our army feasts, recalling the distant battles for the Motherland, from the old antiquity to our difficult days. Warriors make toasts, clink glasses, goblets, faceted glasses, and drink, share memories. Here are ancient heroes, heroes led by Peresvet, and veterans of the war with Napoleon, and eight million soldiers who fell in the Great Patriotic War, and those who fell for their homeland in the Chechen wars and in Syria. "Oh, Comrade Marshal has arrived! Dmitry Timofeevich, come to us, tell us what is there and how." And now a leisurely conversation is flowing ...
    We serve Russia! Homeland, remember your army!

      The last marshal of the USSR! I didn’t make anything, neither the cottages on Rublevka, nor Rolls Royce, nor Bentley, unlike the existing ones. Honestly carried out orders, only could not save the USSR.

    It’s good that under the GKChP he turned out to be Marshall, did not allow blood
