              Oh, sorry! I did not notice this typo, and now this typo cannot be corrected!
              I do not know the blind method of typing, and I wrote a commentary at night. I get tired by the end of the day to read the text from the computer screen and check the written. Then I manage to read something printed and correct mistakes, but something just flies past from attention.

              Thank you for reading the comments carefully! I will try to be more attentive.

      The film is about Pаtake off the shkov, and name the street after him! It is on such people that Russia rests!
      I suppose you made a mistake in the name of the Hero by being sealed?

      A memorial to Oleg Peshkov was erected in the city of Arsenyev, Primorsky Territory. It is planned to name streets in Chelyabinsk, Simferopol and Tambov after Oleg Peshkov. In the name of Oleg Peshkov in 2018 named a street in the new microdistrict Koshelev Park in the village of Stroykeramika, Samara regionti.

    Military people die in war because politicians do their job poorly.

    When the base will be evacuated (well, suddenly, all of a sudden) - will the monument be taken away or abandoned according to the established tradition? Well, so that the barmaley or some other of the ill-wishers / enemies of the Aboriginal mocked? The land is alien, why give an excuse then to shed crocodile tears, it is completely incomprehensible. what

      Isn't it a bit early. The USSR, Russia, on the Syrian land for more than 50 years. So you will not be, and they will all stand there, for the edification of the enemy, the memory of descendants and the Syrian people of Russian soldiers who gave their lives for their freedom.
