War writer Yuri Bondarev passed away

Today it became known about the demise of a remarkable Soviet / Russian writer - a front-line soldier. At the 97th year of his life, Yuri Bondarev died - a man whose remarkable books made no less remarkable films.

Yuri Vasilievich was the author of such literary masterpieces as "Hot Snow", "Battalions Ask for Fire", was one of the writers of "Liberation". These are real chronicles of the Great Patriotic War, which for many years tell about the sad and at the same time heroic pages of 1941-1945.

Yuri Bondarev was born on March 15, 1924 in Orsk. In 1931, the Bondarev family moved to Moscow. While still a schoolboy, Yuri Bondarev participated in the creation of defense lines in the Smolensk region. In 1942, he went to Aktyubinsk, where by that time the 2nd Berdichev Infantry School had been evacuated. It was in the summer. And in the autumn of that year, Yuri Bondarev was sent to Stalingrad. In 1944, he participated in the liberation of Poland from the Nazis.

Yuri Bondarev was awarded numerous orders and medals. He was a Hero of Socialist Labor, had as awards two Orders of Lenin, the Order of the October Revolution, and the Order of the Red Banner of Labor. Twice awarded the USSR State Prize.

The books of a prominent representative of lieutenant prose, Yuri Bondarev, brought up several generations of citizens from Brest to Kamchatka. Among other things, his works are known outside the post-Soviet space.

"Military Review" expresses condolences to the families and friends of the front-line writer.

      War writer Yuri Bondarev passed away

      For this mournful occasion, an entry on LJ Colonel Cassad

      Today, an excellent Soviet writer Yuri Bondarev died.

      His military prose became a classic during his lifetime, and "Hot Snow" and "Battalions Ask for Fire" were included in the gold fund of Soviet military literature about the Great Patriotic War.

      What is noteworthy, unlike many sk (censorship) Soviet writers who easily changed their beliefs by 180 degrees, Bondarev remained true to his principles. His views are perfectly illustrated by the book "The Bermuda Triangle," about the 1993 coup.




      Quote: Yuri Bondarev
      - I would like to ask the Lord God, why is Russia so obscene mad? Why is it ruled by panel capricorns that wash dirty linen in the Kremlin? Wretched politicians who cheaply sold Russia to American nerds and morons with giblets!
      - And Demidov, already falling into a frenzy, began to crush the night silence of the apartment with unforgiving fury:
      - Was there such an insignificant, dirty time in the history of Russia? Poor, nationless, mercantile, shameful! It was, grandson, it was! Seventeen years of unrest, variants of all kinds of False Demetrius, betrayal, bribery, murder, debauchery, robbery, universal drunkenness! Everything was! But not so cynical, dirty, perverted! They were afraid of God for all their abomination, sometimes they raised their eyes to heaven! And our newly spread democrats were presented with clumsy promises of clumsy Russia, new freedom, dignity, unprecedented in the universe, dignity, heavenly permissiveness! Oh, thankless russians! To weep with pride to breathe, the beluga to roar with happiness to live in an era of all kinds of stunned, fools and reformers! Cap - in the air! To delight in tearing up a trepak, shaking recklessly with ports in front of the civilized West, amaze Slavic doolomost! Oh you, yes oh you, drink, walk, free, well-fed, blessed Russia! And oh you!

        Interesting excerpt! But, it is worth reading the whole novel - The Bermuda Triangle.
        In which, dramatic events in Russia are described in the early 1990s. Namely, the reign of a bosom friend of the United States, B. Yeltsin, the surrender of "everything and everything" to the Americans, persecution and repression of those who defended the Supreme Council of the Russian Federation in October 1993, and did not support the October coup of Yeltsin and the shooting of the "White House" .

    Lord, this is a loss! I was reading his books as a child, and “Battalions are asking for fire”, in general, I consider classics of Soviet cinema about the war! Now they don’t write like that, but badly written badly and take off.
    Earth rest in peace and eternal memory.

        Yeah, in some new film about the war, the phrase "this is our cant" simply killed. The new "Hot Snow" will not appear, I hope.

    The honest man is gone! Not adaptable, not bustling. He spoke and wrote what he thought, acted as he considered necessary. He didn’t wear pseudonyms, didn’t accept boors ... It’s a pity that the words of the people on whom our country has kept and keeps remain a voice crying in the desert, and crooks, liars and other brethren from literature eagerly receive prizes and applause, not disdaining anything .
    Books about the war can only be written by a person who has passed it. And books about the post-war world, such as his “Beach” and “Choice”, are only a person who loves his country and his people.

      I absolutely agree with you! An important fact is that in 1994 he refused to accept the award from the hands of Yeltsin. An honest man, an honest writer, an honest citizen.

    Kingdom of heaven! Yesterday I listened with pleasure and watched it on the channel "Culture". And "Battalions ask for fire" I watched 20 times and I will watch, one of my favorite films about the war.

    He was ALWAYS a fighter — he fought for his homeland, first with a weapon, then as a writer. For truth, for justice. Of those who "equated a feather with a bayonet"
    Regarding the awards, he refused Gorbachev’s congratulations with Yeltsin, refused to accept awards. In 1994, he publicly refused to accept from Yeltsin the Order of Friendship of Peoples.
    A low bow to the fighter, writer, Man.

    They were embarrassed to write that in 1994 Yuri Bondarev was awarded the Order of Friendship of Peoples, but the writer refused to accept the award from the then president. He sent a telegram to Boris Yeltsin, writing that "this will not help the good consent and friendship of the peoples of our great country."
    There was a real man!

      Master of the word, warrior ...

      That's for sure...
      The last of that generation of winners are leaving ... (Yu. Bondarev is just the same age as my father, with a very similar military biography).
      But, most importantly, we, their heirs, need “their formidable valor to settle in the hearts of the living,” which, as far as possible. and try to do, remind the younger generation.
      And God forbid that "the heroes will not be transferred to the Russian land." Although the examples of military valor of our military in Syria give the answer that no, they have not gone extinct, there is still gunpowder in the flocks, but there are a lot, unfortunately, among young people and parasitic Ivanes who do not remember kinship.

    Some sayings by Yuri Bondarev:

    - We live in timelessness, without big ideas, without natural kindness and morality, without modesty and defensive bashfulness ... Our freedom is the freedom to spit in our past, present and future, in holy, untouchable, pure ...
    - How many murders, nauseous perversions, anomalies we see on TV! There is a corruption of our children, a shameless corruption of our once very pure people.
    - Any wealth, as philosophers said, is a robbery. They become rich because others get poorer. Money is needed to the extent that it can provide a person’s life.
    But today, the desire to buy money has grown into passion. This is very bitter, because money changes, spoils people.
    - The taste of readers has become too unbearably damaged, and first of all, the language of the “new Russian” literature.
    - There is no such camaraderie, elbow feeling among people as it was before. It's hard to get it back: try breaking the egg and then gluing it together. Can you? No. But hope still remains.


    Ours was Man, real. Thanks to him for his literary work and for his civic position, which he did not change and did not exchange for something more tangible (as many did).

    Condolences to family and friends. hi

    Time is inexorable. Those few go to whom the word Honor leaves. Kapitsa, Alferov, now Bondarev. Who did not exchange beliefs for momentary benefits, for being close to those in power, for the opportunity to be on TV. Everlasting memory.
