Two generals received the title of Hero of Russia for the Syrian operation

Two senior military men were awarded the title of Heroes of Russia for participating in the counter-terrorist operation in the Syrian Arab Republic. This was reported by TASS, citing a source in the military department.


According to information provided by the source, the titles of Heroes of Russia were awarded to Colonel General Sergei Rudsky, Chief of the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces, and Colonel General Andrei Serdyukov, Commander of the Airborne Forces. Awarding took place on February 23. Thus, the merits of both generals in Syria were noted.

Rudskoy and Serdyukov received gold stars of Heroes of Russia on February 23

- the agency leads the words of the source.

As previously reported, Andrei Serdyukov led the Russian group in Syria in early April 2019. According to the plans of the Ministry of Defense, he was supposed to fly on a business trip in 2017, but had a car accident in the Murmansk region and underwent lengthy rehabilitation. It was Serdyukov who established joint patrols with the Turks and strengthened the cooperation of the parties. Since 2016, he has commanded the Airborne Forces.

Colonel General Sergei Rudskoy led the operations of Russian troops in Syria. Since 2015, he is the head of the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

        And what to think. Over the entire Afghan war, the title of Hero of the Soviet Union received 86 people, of which only 3 generals. And there were more troops and operations equated to front-line operations. In Syria, out of 23 who received the title of Hero of Russia, 12 generals of the General Staff are already.

      What’s what, in your opinion, during the Great Patriotic War, you also had to wait on May 9th, 45th, to give all the awards in bulk? Yes, and with the "Chechen campaign" and other hostilities. It was not awarded for the capture of Idlib. And unfortunately there is still a long way to go there, consider the First World Hybrid War going on, let's hope the Third World War will not reach and there are still many awards, the most important thing is not posthumous, you have to worry about it, but it's too early it’s not too early for the Ministry of Defense to know better, it’s not us who is handed over to us, and it’s not us who is handed to us and not for us to judge. Moreover, the title of Hero in Russia is awarded for beautiful eyes.

        Regulation on the title of Hero of the Russian Federation
        The title of Hero of the Russian Federation is awarded for services to the state and people associated with the commission of a heroic feat.

        I would like specifics. In which heroism and feat are the gentlemen generals noticed?

          Gentlemen disagree, you at least give in. But a statute is a statute. If you are supposed to give for a feat, then only for a feat. And not “in aggregate”, not “for the anniversary” and not “just to the board of your peasant”. Do not worry about gentlemen generals. Especially for them, half a dozen orders have been invented. There are enough options than to please. And hanging on what they frankly did not deserve ... Just a spit on the graves of those who received the Hero posthumously. Well, and to the heap a direct path to the expensive Leonid five times. And the complete discredit of the awards as such.
          Py.Sy.
          And yes. You are no longer able to understand the meaning of the word hero ..

            During the Second World War, the commanders of the armies were given the title of Heroes. But they didn’t run ahead in an attack with a gun. You broaden your horizons a little, the word "feat" is a very multifaceted concept. Because
            Among those awarded the title are cosmonauts, military personnel, participants in the Great Patriotic War and other military operations, test pilots, athletesscouts scientists and many others.

      This, unfortunately, is true, with rare exceptions.
      But this is understandable. Loyalty to the "elite" (high-ranking officials, generals, artists and others) is much more important for him. With their help, he rules the people (i.e. us), manipulates through propaganda, punishes and punishes those who disagree through the security forces, robbing and taking away our money through officials, etc.

        Take Marshal Vasilevsky, the reference “planner,” agree? Hopefully no need to tell. So even this chief of the General Staff, the author of victorious operations during the years of the largest war on the planet, has never been awarded the title of Hero for this! He, of course, twice the GSS, but both times only for the direct control of troops at the front - in the Baltic states and Japan. By the way, he was even shell-shocked.

      Sometimes real lives are saved from the office. You find it easier in classrooms, go and prove it. In any case, the Supreme knows who to award and for what, and acts within his authority. And if about the embrasure covered with breasts, a feat can be described in detail, then cabinet affairs have been kept in the special guard for decades under the heading “secret.” And not at all from the fact that they are ashamed to show.

        As far as I know from his awards:
        “For Merits” from the FSSP
        Order of the Holy Right Prince Daniel of Moscow, III degree, from the Russian Orthodox Church
        Order of Friendship of Peoples from Belarus
        Premium registered gun from Yanukovych.

    Personally, they commanded the operation, and then covered up the withdrawal of the main forces and caused fire on themselves .... playing soldiers in the offices!
    Thus, the title of "Hero" will lose its significance.
    It is necessary to introduce a new title - Hero of armored wars or computer games!

    Do not understand. But the feat is where. Well, they performed well the direct duties, the maximum gratitude, well, or the reward of the commander for the brilliantly conducted military operation, although where it is military. And so, the fighter blew himself up and the barmalei with a grenade and agreeing on a patrol schedule with the Turks is the same thing?

    I read comments and wonder. Many people find that the high command should not receive the highest awards without undermining itself with a grenade. Well and game! And the fact that they can save hundreds, thousands of lives with their actions, can get them out of their surroundings, can they carry out an offensive operation competently, with minimal losses, what should we do with this?

      Game, it’s when they spit on the status of awards, don’t they? They have their own orders / medals. This is about this.

    Everything is fine. The generals deserve it.
    They were set goals and they were achieved.
    There would be a team to take Idlib - and he would be ours.
    But there was no team. It was necessary to build Turkish streams and buy tomatoes ... angry

      No one is discussing this. Deserved, should be awarded. There are many awards for this.
      But why heroes at once?

    When the shells burst day and night,
    Rather give ranks and orders,
    So let it always rumble - War, war, war (c)

    I have a civilian taxpayer question: what, apart from these two generals, no one committed heroic acts? But what exactly is “heroism” specifically of these two certainly worthy officers? And in general, in one of us in one district center there is a street that is called that: the street of the surgeon Sha, who worked all his life in this hospital until his very last day. And why are there so few ordinary doctors and teachers from the hinterland among those awarded that have worked honestly and conscientiously in one place all their lives? Does the GDP rally around itself the vertical of power now also horizontally?

    If Putin or Medvedev, by any decree, contributed (?) To an increase in the birth rate in the country, do they deserve the title Mother Heroine? These generals have approximately the same relation to the star of the Hero. I do not mean their merits, but there are other orders and medals. Recently, the head of Rostec Chemezov received a Hero star. For what?!
    Hero Star is not just that. These are large monthly federal and regional payments, benefits and, to a certain extent, immunity. The king used to distribute estates, now ranks and regalia. Well, the position of "feeding" ....
