    There was a cruel lesson. Very young boys. Yes, even "from the 90s" ... However, they got to death. Hand-to-hand fighting. And they called fire on themselves ... And they didn’t run ...

    My dad wrote such poems, in the 95th after two business trips by an anesthesiologist, at that time I served in the north for an urgent period:
    And as if I hadn’t been anywhere
    In addition to this distant Chechnya,
    Drowned in the night, drowned in trouble -
    Only in the sky lights flicker.

    The engines of heavy machines cool down
    The machine chirped and fell silent.
    In the midst of the "Stalingrad-Berlin" ruins
    Do not see either strangers or your own.

    Crazy winter days flew by
    Whether reality, or dream, or delirium ...
    Moms in Russia cry: “Lord, guard
    From such cruel victories. ”

    We will not meet the names of unknown soldiers
    Off-road newspaper articles.
    Presidents don't see dead guys -
    Neither Chechen nor Russian children.

    The heavy April dawn is coming,
    Someone will be killed in the morning ...
    White-pink smoke - apricot blossom
    On Victory Avenue is in full swing.

    (c) Alexander Andreev

Just a reminder.

    Paratroopers are real heroes! Three of the companies blew themselves up with grenades, but did not surrender. This is an example of the mass heroism that we know from World War II.

    In fact, after 20 years, when new information appears, more and more questions arise. For example, why did mortars stand 600 meters from the battlefield and did not receive orders to help the paratroopers? They didn’t even have to go to the battlefield. It’s just that they would get it with a fire - the mortar is the most mountain weapon. And the weather, according to eyewitnesses, was flying.

    How do Russians live in Chechnya now? No way! They are practically not there.
    According to the latest data, there are about 1,5% of Russians in Chechnya: over the past half century, in percentage terms, this is an absolute minimum - thirty years ago, the Russian population accounted for a quarter of all residents of the republic.

    In the mountains above there is one height
    Where has the landing company gone to eternity
    There, the Mujahideen’s account went for thousands,
    But the Russian landing did not leave the heights.

    The snow was bloody there, the land screamed
    Mountains cried there, asking for mercy.
    Seven hundred jackals lay there in the ground,
    But our soldiers were able to restrain them.

    The attacks rolled one by one
    And the sun faded, it seemed at times
    On the flank, on the left stalled machine gun,
    And the chain of Wahhabis goes and goes.

    Signalman in headset shouting a call sign
    Come quickly get in touch dear
    But a bullet crazy radio operator will kill
    And help to the soldiers will not come.

    The commander died, then the company commander died
    The foreman creeps over the trench bend
    From there he calls the attackers,
    But the mines will split the splinter belly.

    The whole company died in an unequal battle
    But the honor was defended, the country and its
    May you rest in peace, dear friends
    My Motherland is indebted to you.

    Eternal memory to you, soldiers of Russia!
