Anniversary of the heroic battle of the 6th company of the Pskov paratroopers at the height of 776 near Ulus-Kert: history and relics

56

21 years ago, a battle took place on the territory of the Shatoy region of Chechnya, which became part of the newest history Russia is both tragic and heroic. We are talking about a clash that occurred on February 29 - March 1, 2000 between the soldiers of the 6th company of the 2nd battalion of the 104th Guards Infantry Regiment (parachute regiment) of the 76th Pskov Guards Airborne Division and more than two thousand militants terrorist conglomerate of the North Caucasus. The clash is known in military historiography as the battle at Hill 776.


Impressive forces of terrorists in the Ulus-Kert region appeared after the Khattab militants broke through the encirclement, into which they found themselves as a result of the retreat from Grozny and its suburbs to the Shatoi region. Russian troops made attempts to tightly close the ring in the southern part of Chechnya to completely destroy the enemy group that had retreated there, however, using thorough knowledge of the terrain, the militants were able to break through the shrinking ring.

The federal forces received precise information about the terrorist group that had broken through and the direction of its movement on the afternoon of February 29, when the reconnaissance patrol clashed with a small vanguard of militants and entered the battle. The terrorists realized that they had problems with further advancement. However, upon learning that they were opposed by "only a company" in front, they decided that there would be no special problems. But then they obviously did not realize which company was in their way ...

As a result, the direction of the attack from the terrorists was designated as follows - from Ulus-Kert and Mount Istykart (Istykort) to height 776 with the aim of further going along the Abazulgol river to the village of Selmentauzen, Vedeno region.

The main attack by terrorists, including Arab mercenaries, began at about 17:00 from two directions - west and northwest.

The diagram shows the location of the terrorists, as well as the Russian companies of the parachute regiment, several of which ended up on the flanks and in fact could not really help the comrades from the 6th company:



By about 22:50, the militants carried out a mortar attack, after which, on the personal order of Khattab, a militant unit, which at that time was considered the most efficient, was thrown into the assault on the company stronghold. This is the so-called combined squad "Dzhimar". Up to 400 militants used a method of attack that is usually described as "rolling waves": one group of militants followed another. Thus, the terrorists tried to deprive the Pskov paratroopers of any opportunity to rest, take a breath. At the same time, the same vaunted “Dzhimar” eventually lost about half of its composition, and with the attack “rolling waves” problems began to arise.

By one o'clock in the morning, the militants were struck several times by the artillery battalion of the 108th Infantry Regiment. They fired from the Grad MLRS on Mount Istykort. This shelling somewhat crumpled the plans of the militants and delayed the approach of their new forces to the 776th height.

However, by about three o'clock in the morning on March 1, the 6th company had already suffered significant losses (up to a third of its personnel) and was surrounded by militants, while continuing to fight and hindering the further advance of terrorists. On the morning of March 1, the enemy lost at least 300 militants. By about 5:40 am, the terrorists managed to take the height, at which a few Russian paratroopers remained at that time, fighting to the end. For example, only 11 Russian servicemen fought in the northern direction. In the southwestern direction, it came to hand-to-hand combat, up to the use of infantry (sapper) shovels. And the terrorists aimed to take the paratroopers defending the line alive. But that did not happen. Airborne troops fought to the last.

At about 6:10, Lieutenant Colonel Mark Yevtyukhin called for artillery fire. The words "I call fire on myself!" were the last on that radio broadcast. At the same time, some sources claim that these words were no longer pronounced by Mark, since "he had already died by that time." The name of Captain Viktor Romanov is called, but this is rather an unofficial point of view.

In any event, artillery fire began to fire at Hill 776. Up to two hundred more militants were killed.

In order to somehow hide more than significant losses, the surviving terrorists, who later broke through from the Argun gorge, announced that "in fact, there were no more than 700 of them near Ulus-Kert, and twenty died." These statements do not stand up to criticism, since more than fifty terrorists were killed in the first few minutes of the battle, by the heavy fire of the paratroopers occupying the dominant height.

Voennoe Obozreniye presents several pictures of the legendary battle at Hill 776.

A real relic - documents and personal belongings of the guard lieutenant colonel (battalion commander) Mark Yevtyukhin, including a compass, watch, identification:

    Not so long ago, on one of the branches of our site, there was a discussion of the concept of a feat as such. One of the commentators lamented that in modern realities the concept of feat has become somewhat blurred and lost its former relevance. , is and will be, because honor for the Russian soldier has always been higher than the fear of death. And only the Russian soldier is inherent in the MASS feat.
    The soldiers and officers of the 6th company fulfilled their military duty at the cost of their lives. Endless respect for their feat. Eternal glory to the lost ...

    Why did the landing party die, someone will answer?
    Or how about Kursk - she drowned?
    Why did the soldiers die heroically and no one came to the rescue?
    There is still no official answer, soldiers are heroes, here are monuments and museums, but there is no answer to the main question.
    Only unofficial versions, boiling down to one thing - the militants paid "whoever needs it" for this passage.

      Read the materials of the criminal cases initiated on the fact of this battle (there is, by the way, in the public domain) - several participants from the side of the militants were convicted. Especially the materials of the forensic medical examinations of the dead servicemen make one think. You will find the answer to your question - you will not like it very much, really. The situation, alas, is not uncommon - when, in order to cover up mistakes and, to put it mildly, frivolity, they begin to emphasize heroism.

        So this company also came under fire from its own artillery.
        Taking advantage of the shock from the shelling, the militants entered from the flank.
        And they walked along the entire chain from the side, shot everyone.

          Well, not just "passed and shot." Even the militants admit the death of forty people, which means that not all of our people were shocked.

            Certainly not that simple.
            There, two rare chains - paratroopers and militants - lay opposite
            each other and fought, tight firefight from machine guns. Both those and others suffered losses.
            But the militants sent a group to flank, unnoticed.
            At some point, shells hit (or Nona's mines? - not very clear).
            They lay down behind the line of paratroopers. There was a shock. And the militants at this moment became close
            from the flank. They were not seen, and they began to shoot accurately
            sideways in lying on the ground
            soldier. This was the turning point of the battle.

            The militants buried twenty of their own. But there were still many seriously wounded militants.

            This outcome was because the militants allocated the most bombarded for this battle.
            fighters with practical experience in fighting. In the first group, which started a fight, there were 40 people. Then, to replace the wounded and to outflank, more soldiers came up.

            And the paratroopers were very brave, but without experience. The officer did not reinforce the flank.

              Yes, and the company did not fully fight, it also completely occupied the height and did not have time to strengthen itself. In short, a very unpleasant story came out, which was covered in three layers with all kinds of mythology, like the stupid movie "Breakthrough".

        Based on the materials of the examinations, it can be concluded that at least 10 people blew themselves up with grenades so as not to be captured ...

        no one there lied about the militants. Initially, everyone understood that it was a tragic accident. The first versions were, but the investigation immediately established where and by whom the fire was fired.

          Do you remember those days?
          March 2, 2000, Staropromyslovsky district of Grozny. In the morning from Mozdok to Grozny a convoy of cars with riot police from Sergiev Posad left. 98 fighters were supposed to replace their colleagues from Podolsk. At ten o'clock in the morning, at the entrance to the Staropromyslovsky district from the village of Pervomayskoye, at the 53rd checkpoint, the convoy was met by Podolsk militiamen. They were the first to come under fire. The militants opened fire from both sides of the road at once. The militants were commanded by a certain Baudi Bakuev, one of Khattab's associates. The first shot from a flamethrower set fire to the lead vehicle. The trailing one literally immediately flashed. After that, the militants began to shoot the riot police who had occupied the perimeter defense. Reinforcements approached the riot police only three hours later. The losses were 20 killed and 31 wounded.


          ... Who shot: their own or the militants?
          At first, everyone answered confidently: militants. But soon the answer began to sound different: the militants and the Sverdlovsk OMON.
          It turned out that the Sverdlovsk residents started shooting at the column - on the left, from behind a concrete fence. And it was they who threshed for the first 20-30 minutes. By their own. ....
          And then - as the newspapers write and on TV - for another three hours the militants from the right, from the village, were beating the convoy. And the Sverdlovsk OMON and the surviving Sergiev posadtsy beat the militants.
          Three and a half hours of brutal combat. But the investigation did not find any evidence that militants participated in the battle. There were no militants.

          As for the defendants in the case
          The former head of the command group of the United Group of Forces in the North Caucasus, Mikhail Levchenko, and the deputy head of the Central Internal Affairs Directorate of the Moscow Region, Boris Fadeev, were found not guilty for lack of corpus delicti.

            That's exactly what I wrote: at first there was a version that the battle was fought with the militants, but we quickly figured out that it was the Sverdlovsk riot police who were shooting at the convoy from behind the fence. On the other hand, there were positions of local militiamen from the Staropromyshlovskiy ROVD. They also took part in the shelling. It was their position that was mistaken for the fire of the militants.
            As for the defendants in the case

            there is more
            In 2001, General Fadeev was charged with negligence that led to the deaths of 22 riot police from Sergiev Posad in Chechnya. According to the investigators, in March 2000, while heading a detachment of police officers from the Moscow Region, he did not ensure the safety of the movement of their column. As a result, the soldiers came under fire from the Sverdlovsk militiamen. In February 2004, he was found guilty and sentenced to four years, but released from the sentence of amnesty.

              sorted it out quickly

              We quickly figured it out - when the uproar arose, the investigation began and it was no longer possible to deceive, then it surfaced that there were no militants, and before that everything was by name.
              As for Fadeev, it has long been known that he had nothing to do with the case, as he accompanied a completely different column. But it was necessary to punish someone, so they did a new case, and in order not to complain further, he immediately fell under the amnesty
              Nobody was looking for real guilty ones, except for the relatives of the victims.

                I think if you put you in this situation, you would behave the same way. And it's not even a matter of cowardice. It's just too psychologically difficult to admit (especially to yourself) that you yourself are to blame for the death of your fellow soldiers. That they were killed by your bullet. By the way, the case with the posadovites has been widely publicized. But for example, the case of the death of the Kuzbass OMON is generally unknown to anyone. But they died from "friendly fire" at one time as many.
                As for Fadeev, it has long been known that he had nothing to do with the case,

                this is the otkoryaka of his lawyers. He was responsible for the rotation of the detachments.

                  Only at that particular moment did he accompany a completely different column
                  And everyone knew perfectly well that a change would come, they actually started shooting, no one investigated, the case was reduced to the departure of a column, and not the very fact of the attack, no one was involved in the execution
                  As for the guilt, they lied at the level of the Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Wouldn't have received publicity, they would have written off.

                      In the convoy of those who arrived there was a representative of the host side who fired. What other accompaniment should have been? In the UAZ, the OMON commander was hit by one bullet, strictly in the commander's head. This was one of the first shots. No more bullets hit the UAZ. The execution lasted for about 4 hours, although the radio communication worked normally.
                      Nobody investigated this.
                      The order to escort from afar after the incident.
                      In the case of Fadeev, they found the first one who was more or less suitable, although during the investigation it turned out that he was not guilty of the tragedy, but they stubbornly continued to accuse him, as a result, the accusation was leaked through an amnesty - a well-known practice.
                      The relatives of the victims believe that they were helped, first of all, by their commander.

                        Deryabin gave the order. Go to judge him? He received information that at the same moment a column of disguised militants was advancing to them. Is it his fault that it turned out to be disinformation?
                        One bullet hit the OMON commander in the UAZik - strictly in the commander's head. This was one of the first shots.

                        as far as I remember, the driver of the head Urals was killed by the first shot. And the commander of the OMON was killed by a sniper later.
                        In the case of Fadeev, they found the first one who was more or less suitable,

                        the odd thing is that in your alternate reality, the person in charge of ensuring the safety of the event turns out to be innocent when people are suddenly killed during the event. And they die precisely because of the lack of security. Who then? I ask again. Putin again?
                        although during the investigation it turned out that he was not to blame for the tragedy,

                        do you deliberately not read what they write to you? Fadeev was convicted. He got a real term. The amnesty does not remove the criminal penalty. In the personal file of Fadeev, there was a record of a criminal record.

    The fact that the company was beaten by the gang is a consequence. Why does the article not indicate the cause of this tragedy? Why is the emphasis on heroism, and this battle is not considered as a shame for the Russian army, which allowed this defeat? Why did they leave their own people and no one came to help? What was the operative shab doing at the time when people were dying? Why did they not give the order to retreat, if such a situation occurred due to the stupidity of planning? This is a military operation ... And to give justification, it is necessary to report on the number of corpses of enemies. old and vulgar. The soldiers have to do their job. There was an order to keep the defense, they held, and hoped that they would come to the aid, cho they will win, and will live, but they were betrayed. And this is not the first time. As long as you look at this from the point of view of heroism, then it will continue that way.

      The heroism of ordinary fighters is used to cover up the slovenliness of high commanders - that's what is happening now and in the article only about this. It's a shame that they could not really help, it's a shame that they allowed the death of almost the entire company. And it is even more offensive that the correct conclusions have not been drawn.
      "Grads" and "Tornadoes" look so good at parades, the announcer so cheerfully praises "all-weather" stormtroopers. Where is all this in a real battle? A SHAME.

      Why did they leave their own people and no one came to help? ...
      The help was ...
      On March 1, a detachment of 15 fighters led by A. Dostalov from 4th company from a nearby height (violating the order), they say that they extended the battle for another 2 hours. The 1st company of the 1st battalion also broke through to help, but they got into battle on the river. Abazulgol.

      This is a military operation ... And in order to give justification, it is necessary to report on the number of corpses of enemies ..
      One more question...
      Where are the militants who escaped from the encirclement? - Why weren't they held in the villages of South-Eastern Chechnya stripping, immediately after the breakthrough, the militants left a trail of the wounded thrown to death ...

    At about 6:10, Lieutenant Colonel Mark Yevtyukhin called for artillery fire. The words "I call the fire on myself!" were the last on that radio broadcast.

    The battalion commander requested help the day before. Moreover, turntables flew in, tankers from a tank company and artillerymen - the Tula people offered to help - but no one gave them a command.
    The only one who helped was Dostalov's group of 14 people from the 4th company made their way to the height at night during the calm of the battle. Arrtillery struck only at 10 a.m., when the battle was long over. The fact that the company was gone, the regiment learned only at lunchtime, when the six surviving fighters reached their own. Monument to those killed in Pskov.

      The turntables did not fly. Non-flying weather interfered. Artillery could have helped, but no one from the command took the responsibility to shoot at incomprehensible coordinates.
      Arrtileria struck only at 10 am, when the battle was long over.

      The regular battery "Non" supported it all the time. About 2000 shells were consumed per day.

        Where did 2000 shells go ???
        Who was adjusting the fire of "Non"? - or they hit the squares, not knowing where the enemy is ...

          while there was an opportunity, the paratroopers themselves corrected, then they beat in the squares. The gunners knew the point of their position. When the battalion commander called fire on himself, they knew where to shoot.

            I may not know a lot about the battle of the 6th company ...
            Having artillery (battery "Non") is in touch, which has enough range and shells lose the battle and die ... How the militants got close to the paratroopers at a distance hand-to-hand combat... ??? The 6th company was drawn into battle gradually, on the move, but when the paratroopers were entrenched at the height of 776, why was the 6th company not covered by the "barrage" from the attacks of the militants ?? In my understanding (sofa strategist), a pair of artillery spotters would be enough for the defense of the "height" (if there were communications, surveillance equipment and battery ammunition). It looks like the militants themselves pelted the 6th company with mines from an 82 mm mortar ... Then they simply finished off those who were alive, but shell-shocked.

              we don't know a lot about this fight. Forensic examinations of the dead paratroopers got into the network, from the case of a militant convicted in Chechnya, it can be concluded from them that 50% of the dead had mine-explosive wounds. It's hard to tell from an 82 mm mortar or from your own artillery.
              Its battery fired at its range. At the first stage, an error with the location on the ground, then the death of the artillery spotter. Those who could shoot and really help with fire never received a combat order.

    There is another version of the last words of Mark Evtyukhin: "You betrayed us, s ... ki".
    And as for me, this is more real than the notorious "Calling fire on myself."

    The company was definitely betrayed. Who and why - they were afraid to investigate. There are a lot of questions about this fight and there are no answers.
    15 soldiers of the 3rd platoon of the 4th company, led by Major Alexander Dostalov, in just 40 minutes were able to break through to the 6th company and, under heavy fire from the militants, unite with Evtyukhin. 120 paratroopers under the command of the chief of intelligence of the 104th regiment Sergei Baran also voluntarily withdrew from their positions, crossed the Abazulgol River and moved to help Yevtyukhin, but they were stopped by a categorical order from the command to return to their positions immediately. The commander of the Marine Corps of the Northern Fleet, Major General Otrakovsky, repeatedly asked permission to come to the aid of the paratroopers, but never received it. On March 6, due to these experiences, General Otrakovsky's heart stopped. Another victim of the battle at the height of 776 ...

    There are many recollections of soldiers from the units that were nearby that they could have come to the aid of the paratroopers, but they were not given.
    The fact that the case does not clearly show the following fact: only the families of the sailors of the Kursk and the paratroopers were paid monetary compensation that stood out sharply against the general background. Nobody else. And in both cases - the very vague position of the authorities for the reasons of what happened. It is very similar to the banal payment of compensation so that the noise is not raised.

      By the way, the lieutenant colonel, the paratrooper has no awards. There are no jubilee ones yet. Daughter Shoigu has the sea.

    And our "generals" have profiled everything! The company fought for more than a day, but didn't really get help! And there is no need for fairy tales about bad weather! Tea, the year was 2000, not 1941 ... Where was the "all-weather aviation" ??

    My personal understanding is that the soldiers of this company were simply betrayed by Russia! Was there no means to help them? We do not have long-range weapons, aircraft, any target designation! And all the airborne forces drop in the exercises, this is a circus! They were betrayed! To the guys of the StarHero! And the decision-maker is a prison!

      Vovan, go hungover and return to the ward. What does Russia have to do with it? Orders are given by people, albeit sovereigns ... The fact that we are still not fighting very much is a fact, but it is the heroism of the soldiers, and not the genius of the generals that allows us to win even when we are in the minority. About the circus and prison, also shut up - first try both, then advise.
