On the Capture of an Aeroflot Aircraft in Georgia in 1983 and Hostage Release


Often you can hear statements that in the Soviet Union before the perestroika and the events that followed it, there were no terrorist acts. But such statements are not true. Terrorists attacked law enforcement officers, tried to disrupt important cultural and political events, and seized airborne aircraft.


One of the attacks in the USSR occurred on November 18, 1983. A group of terrorists hijacked an Aeroflot Tu-134A passenger plane, which was supposed to deliver passengers from Tbilisi to Leningrad. The purpose of the capture was to escape from the USSR to the West. At the same time, the attackers designated Turkey as an intermediate point of their escape.

The terrorists belonged, as they say now, to the "golden youth." The leader of the band, as it turned out later, was 25-year-old Joseph Tsereteli, who worked as an artist in the cinema studio "Georgia-Film". The group included, among other things, the 21-year-old son of famous film director Mikhail Kobakhidze German.

A fragment of an interview with Vladimir Gasoyan is published on the Tactic Media channel, which tells in detail about the operation carried out in November 1983 to free the hostages in Tbilisi.

    He flew in late November (or early December, I don’t remember anymore) in 1983 from Osh to Moscow. A passenger from the “that” flight, an employee of the USSR Ministry of Agriculture, sat nearby.
    You can’t tell this in the film.

    Well, they would give, kids, the opportunity to escape over the hill. Who needs them there? Abroad of the regional committees, no. And dad, on the party commission and in the janitors.

      "A thief should be in prison," the terrorists, too.

        You know, I have a friend, a special forces sniper, he wouldn’t agree with you about terrorists, another philosophy is nine grams of investment, and lawyers will not come in handy. I will support his opinion - he knows better, through the grid ...

          In battle, we suck another thing, no questions asked.
          I generally answered the option to let go.
          Are you sure you're not a terrorist? ))))) I'm talking about the death penalty. I am totally against it. For Chekatila, how many innocent people were shot? Already do not lie. (((

            I won’t argue with you, I didn’t have such a choice before me, I just “drove” them sometimes. I have already voiced my comrade’s opinion, he’d been in different situations .. how often happens: the connection fails, the decision to accept everything merge... but raised a weapon to unarmed - salute the Lord ...

    Well done Gasoyan! A real man is a warrior, not everyone is capable of this, especially in Soviet times! Then the warring youth was not enough, not like now.

    Thank you very much to the person who told about the situation. I remember the film where Mordyukova played. I must say, I watched this film with disgust. Such films simply can not be set.
