The operation to free Shatoy: the realities of the First Chechen campaign


In June, 25 years have passed since the end of the operation of the federal forces to liberate Vedeno and Shatoy from militants. It would seem that there is not much time on a global historical scale, but we have to admit that today in our country less and less is spoken about the battles of the First Chechen Campaign, and therefore less and less people know and understand what was happening in the country at that time.

On the channel of the war correspondent Alexander Sladkov “Sladkov +”, material was released that is dedicated to the events in Chechnya 25 years ago.

In May 1995, federal troops from the lowlands of Chechnya approached the mountains and virtually blocked all roads that led to the south. This allowed to cut several key communication paths of the militants. As a result, they were locked in the mountains.

General Troshev:

The troops reached their starting positions, blocked all gorges, entrances, exits, and now bombing and assault and artillery strikes are carried out on the congregations of militants located outside settlements.

It is important to note such a component of the campaign: often in the combat zone there were such journalists (including foreign ones), whose publications and reports became an important information component for the terrorists themselves. That is why the Russian officers involved in the planning of operations tried to evade direct communication with those reporters whose confidence they did not feel reliable. But there were, of course, those who, being at the epicenter of events, presented data on realities, bringing the cruel truth about the war.

      Thanks to Sladkov for the video materials. It was as if he had been there again.

      And when can you objectively? In 100 years? You know a lot about the Suvorov campaign through the Alps? Sit in a hatch and do not shine!

    Enough time has passed to name and pay tribute to the heroes, defenders of Russia, as well as name and pay tribute to the traitors, bribe-takers and other scoundrels that General Troshev spoke about. But everything is hushed up by the actions of superior ideologists and legalists. And already "new Russian" high-crawling thieves, scoundrels and corrupt officials behind the backs of normal Russians in a peaceful life every day are doing what their unnamed and unpunished predecessors of the Chechen war did. And some of them are the same.

      I now think that these "predecessors" of the so-called. the founders of the "moratorium" in '95 and the "Khasavyurt agreement" are still in power.
      There is a good song:
      Then there was August '99. On the second round. In a couple of months my demobilization will be exactly 20 years old. Shali-Kurchaloy-Agishbata, Ersenoy - Tsa-Vedeno, Vedeno, Dyshne-Vedeno, places passed. From Vedeno, if I remember correctly, the road to Shatoi through Makhkety.
      Then, a few years later, a business trip with an o / authorized officer.

      Sladkov’s reports on his channel are a private initiative.

      Those who need it remember. If you look at the registration of DB veterans and participants, including those "DB participants who are passing by for a couple of days" with a "syndrome", it turns out that every 20th passed through Chechnya ... These people remember.

    I already read about Suvorov and his victories in the first grade. And you still don’t seem to know nichrome. So sit in the hole where you got out, you fool.
    At 95, NTV probably listened to Masyuk and assented, and now he patched up a patriot. Do you want more war inside Russia?
    Fresh wounds do not need to be picked.

    The operation to free Chechnya from the Chechens? And not only from them, before the war, under Dudaev’s power, people of various nationalities lived in Chechnya, a huge number of Russians lived in the same Grozny. But what is there before the war, after the 1st war, almost all of our Russian and non-Russian (I myself Dargin) neighbors were in the city. And now under Kadyrov there are almost no Russians (and non-Russians too), some Chechens. At the same time, the Chechens themselves flee from the Republic. So from whom and why were Chechnya freed?
