Soldiers of the NKVD troops against German tankers during the Great Patriotic War

66

One of the myths about the Great Patriotic War is associated with the activities of the NKVD officers. For decades, pseudo-historians have been trying to form a judgment that the NKVD during the Second World War was only engaged in shooting innocent people in the back of the head and driving Soviet soldiers into battle, shooting them in the back with large-caliber machine guns.


Such a lie about the People's Commissariat has really taken root in the heads of many people - to our great regret. Therefore, for most of them, real events become a revelation - the truth about the war. And the truth is that the troops of the NKVD, along with the formations of the Red Army, heroically fought in battles with the Nazis on different fronts.

For example, fighters of the NKVD troops took part in the heroic defense of the Brest Fortress (we are talking about the 132nd NKVD battalion), fought for Minsk and Kiev, held the defense in the Battle of Stalingrad. We must not forget that the NKVD troops at that time also included border guards, who were the first to take the enemy's blow.

There is still no exact data on the losses among the NKVD servicemen during the war. According to the most conservative estimates, the loss of troops amounted to at least 100 thousand people.

The plot of the TacticMedia channel tells about the participation of the 34th regiment of the NKVD troops in battles during the Great Patriotic War. In the plot “History in photography "tells about the" meeting "of the NKVD fighters with tank formations of the Wehrmacht, with the "tank ace" of the enemy troops.

Can one person succeed against a tank.

      The 132nd escort (!!!) battalion of the NKVD was excluded from the lists of the active army as completely killed in battles. Fought in the Brest Fortress. They wrote "I am dying, but I am not giving up."

       The 10th division of the internal troops of the NKVD, almost completely died at Stalingrad.

      41 border, 287 and 233 escort regiments were almost completely killed in Voronezh. With one rifle (!!!) weapon, the German tanks of the 48th corps were stopped.
      When the grenades and cartridges ran out, the professional "wolfhounds" of the NKVD went hand-to-hand with knives. There was also his own "Pavlov's house", and his "Sailors"
      The Germans did not pass Voronezh.

      And that's just THREE episodes.

      So they fought to the death.
      Really.

        The 132nd battalion of the NKVD was excluded from the lists of the active army as completely killed in battles. Fought in the Brest Fortress.
        Our history is full of contradictions. "As of June 22, 1941, according to the research results of the Moscow historian of the special services S. L. Chekunov, the payroll of the battalion was 563 people. 168 of them were in echelon convoys, 8 people were in a planned convoy along the route Brest - Moscow - Brest, about 150 fighters guarded prisons on the periphery, 36 people - in Brest and the fortress, and another 10 were in temporary absence (holidays, training, etc.) If we consider that the command staff and some conscripts lived in the city, then on the last pre-war night there were no more than 120-130 battalion soldiers in the Brest Fortress.

          Unfortunately, this battalion lost its banner, which was captured by the Germans, which is why this battalion was disbanded. This was the only banner in the Brest fortress that the Germans captured, others were taken out or hidden and found after the liberation of the fortress, some of the replacements were lost forever, but unfortunately it was the capture of the banner that caused the NKVD convoy battalion to be disbanded.

            Not sure and disagree. The banner was not captured (i.e. taken away) by the Germans during any attack, but was accidentally found on July 2, 1941 in the long-empty battalion barracks. The battalion fighters hid him.
            I think we need to look for an order to disband.

                Everything is possible. And you can't figure it out without documents. Especially when you consider that "on June 23-27, 1941, the battalion headquarters, the 1st line company, separate units of the 2nd and 3rd line companies of the battalion, concentrated in Minsk, were reorganized into the 251st regiment of the convoy troops of the NKVD of the USSR in composed of: unit control, two rifle companies. Basis - the scheme of the mobilization deployment of the convoy troops of the NKVD of the USSR, approved by order of the NKVD of the USSR No. 00313 dated March 25, 1941 "With the announcement of the staffing schedule of wartime escort troops of the NKVD.
                They write that the banner was delivered to the city of Linz and on July 14th it was displayed at some event apparently dedicated to the actions of the 45th division. hi

              As far as I remember the Charter of the Armed Forces, the consequences of the loss of the military banner of the unit are unambiguous, regardless of the reasons for the loss: disbandment. It is described briefly: "..the unit is subject to disbandment, the commander of the unit and the persons directly responsible for the loss, to the court of the military tribunal .." I quote from memory, maybe not literally, but I vouch for the meaning.

        They fought not only for Voronezh, Stalingrad and Brest, but practically on the entire front. For example, the soldiers of the 230th escort took part in the defense of my native Rostov-on-Don (I emphasize the CONVOY, that is, according to the version of local liberals and anti-Sovietists, "guardians"). They fought terribly and to death, and the Germans feared them no less than black jackets. The guys were heroic. And probably it was not in vain that the banners of the defeated Nazis were thrown at the foot of the Mausoleum by the soldiers of the NKVD troops.

            And yes, the regiment participated in the deportation of persons of German nationality from the territory of the Rostov and Stalingrad regions, Krasnodar Territory. What was - what was.
            And what's the big deal? Yes, I did, and WHAT ?! They just followed the order, as they should. Will you say that the order was criminal and honest people do not need to carry it out? One hundred and thirty-three times ha-ha, orders are not discussed, orders are carried out, and whether he is criminal or not, then history will judge. What, there were no traitors among these deported? And, by the way, deportation, this is the mildest form of punishment, could have exterminated everyone without exception, but they did not do it.
            To put it mildly, most of the Crimean Tatars took the side of the Nazis and with incredible zeal handed over to the Germans the families of the command staff and the political department of the Red Army, and not only surrendered, but they themselves took a zealous part in the destruction of the Russians, whether they were Bolsheviks or not. What, you say it was not ?! It was, and it was on such a scale that all of them could be destroyed.
            Yes, you will say that among them was the family of the twice hero of the USSR, Ahmed Khan Sultan, but with all due respect to this person personally, his exploits cannot cover all the atrocities and meannesses that the Crimean Tatars have done in their mass. AND THIS IS ALSO THE TRUTH, which they preferred to suppress. Just as they hushed up the truth about the Bandera and forest brothers, how they hushed up the truth about our type of "brothers" who later entered the Warsaw bloc, about the Romanians who committed atrocities worse than the Germans - they forgot about the army of Craiova - they forgot. We have forgotten a lot of things for the sake of the political conjuncture, and now we slurp a full spoon of this shit.
            I say it again, Comrade Stalin was a great humanist, not a bloody tyrant, in his place many would prefer to completely cleanse some peoples, but he only deported them, and then, not so much in order to punish them as in order to preserve them. , otherwise they would have been destroyed by the people themselves, who fought against this viper.

              Lvov because of the capture by the Germans in 1941 of the NKVD without trial and investigation were shot inmates of all prisons in the city.
              Kharkov by the NKVD in 1941 burned prisoners together with the prison without trial or investigation.

              Germans began to be deported not for betrayal - as Crimean Tatars, Ingush and others, and on a national basis - as possible (!!!) accomplices. Deportation began on 28.08.1941 ...
              Likewise, the United States drove its Japanese into camps - preventively
              So it is one thing, well-deserved by betrayal, desertion and betrayal, the deportation of some, and to put it mildly, quite another - the deportation of the Germans.

          It was not easy to get into the NKVD troops.
          Conscripts - strict selection according to various criteria.
          The officers are real pros.
          For example, the 233rd regiment, before almost completely falling in Voronezh, managed to work out the following (except for convoys):
          - fought with Western nationalists,
          - formed fighter detachments for operations behind enemy lines, individual subunits and sniper teams of the regiment participated in hostilities at the front. 
          - fought with saboteurs. For example, from November 1 to December 8, 1941, while guarding the military rear of the 21A regiment, 16 agents of German intelligence were detained.

          This is the story of this shelf offhand, read it if you're interested.

          In addition to performing certain tasks in peacetime, they were also trained for wartime tasks, during which the staffing table also changed.

            I don't remember exactly the quote, but the meaning is this.
            When Stalin was asked to assign the rank of guards to the NKVD units that distinguished themselves in battles, he said: "Our best fighters serve in the NKVD, who in fact are already all guards. Therefore, it makes no sense to assign this rank to them."
            Therefore, there were no NKVD guards units, although it goes without saying that they all distinguished themselves in battles due to their training.
            By the way, the sniper movement also began with the NKVD troops, where, according to the pre-war states, sniper pairs were introduced in the units.

      BUT the enemies of the USSR and the Soviet people slandered the workers of the Cheka-NKVD-KGB. And they do not even understand the meaning of their anti-Soviet methodology. Is that why they were shooting in the backs of their soldiers? When soldiers go into battle, there is no point in shooting their soldiers in the back, and when soldiers are fleeing from the battlefield, so why wait for them to run past the detachment to shoot them in the back?

            according to your words, it turns out that you personally saw them in the case.

            I read about one NKVD officer who died near Moscow. He organized a partisan detachment ... but fate turned so that he was wounded and was taken prisoner by the Fritzes ... the Nazis subjected him to torture that it is better not to describe ... when I read all this I passed mentally through myself ... I thought if I could endure all this ... he never broke ... these bastards shot him ... died a hero.

    I advise you to read Guderian's memoirs. In August, there was already an order not to enter into a military clash with units of the NKVD. To bypass and, if possible, simply squeeze out of positions by semi-encirclement. Since September, there has already been a strict order not to take NKVD soldiers prisoner. According to Guderian and Schellenberg, for the whole the war could not break off the troops of the NKVD.

          Gennady, I'm not sure that Heinz Guderian ordered to attack the rest of the Red Army head-on, namely the NKVD units - to squeeze out and semi-circle.

    At the beginning of July 1941, the 42nd separate convoy brigade of the NKVD Troops held the crossings and the eastern bank of the Berezina River at a front up to 15 km. As part of the brigade, from the first day of the war, the combined company of the 236th regiment operated. Early in the morning of July 2, the enemy opened hurricane fire from all types of weapons on a platoon of heavy machine guns and an infantry platoon of junior lieutenant V.N.Kustarev. Soon one tankette, two armored vehicles, motorcyclists and infantrymen began to cross the bridge. Platoon leader Kustarev decided to delay the crossing. He ordered Corporal Mikhail Markovichenko to destroy the armored vehicles. Markovichenko moved forward onto the road and lay down. After waiting, when the armored car was already 10 - 15 meters away, the corporal threw a bunch of grenades under the wheels of the car. The enemy armored car rolled down a slope. He shot the Germans who jumped out of the car with a rifle.

    Soon a wedge heel, a second armored vehicle and motorcyclists appeared. Corporal Markovichenko threw the second bunch of grenades. The platform stopped. Junior lieutenants Kustarev and Kuryshev, together with Markovichenko, set fire to a tankette and an armored vehicle with armor-piercing bullets, and the motorcyclists, abandoning their vehicles, fled. Many German soldiers were killed in this battle from the well-aimed bullets of Soviet soldiers from Kustarev's platoon.

    In November 1941, the commander of a squadron of a separate battalion of tank destroyers, Sergeant M.S.Markovichenko, was presented by the command of the unit to a reward for this battle and the destruction of 50 enemy soldiers and officers from a sniper rifle - the Order of the Red Banner. Order No. 54 of February 21, 1942 for the troops of the 29th Army of the Kalinin Front was awarded the Order of the Red Star.

    The NKVD troops in the Second World War were one of the most persistent parts of the Red Army.
    How many read about them I have never met descriptions of their weakness or cowardice ... they always went into battle with the enemy without fear or reproach.
    My respect and respect for the employees of the NKVD who fought against the Nazis and their accomplices. hi
    Moreover, there were NKVD officers who made an indelible impression on me with their brilliance and professionalism.

    Under Nazism, there will be the same capitalism as now. It's just that the dirtiest jobs will be performed by "inferior races", and free of charge. For a communist, such an order is unacceptable.

    How many were in the ranks at the end of the war?
    The fact is that in the balance sheet of Krivosheev 1 "Aimed at replenishing the NKVD troops, special formations of other departments", there are two teams:
    1. Troops of the NKVD in the ranks on 1.7.1945;
    2. "Workers of civilian departments allocated to meet the needs of the army" - those who died in the course of hostilities (approximately 65), died in captivity (approximately 000) and X - who agreed to cooperate.

    Knowing the exact number of the NKVD, you can determine a different composition.

So it is not necessary 243 rifle division ... I could be wrong about the transfer from Kushka, but I could have been recalled from vacation at the place of residence in Grozny, so there could have been a 50th cavalry division ... - Unfortunately, there is no one to ask now ..

              From Saratov to Moscow - a day by train now and to the border from Moscow a day

    But the NKVD didn’t take unprincipled communists or what? Or is hatred of the Nazis a sign of an ideological communist? And what about the Komsomol members? And ideological and unprincipled.
    You wrote nonsense. Utterly. Where they were called, there they served. There must have been a selection, but obviously not by membership card.

    For example, fighters of the NKVD troops took part in the heroic defense of the Brest Fortress (we are talking about the 132nd NKVD battalion), fought for Minsk and Kiev, held the defense in the Battle of Stalingrad.(C)
    And also the defense of Tula, Murmansk and along the entire border, the border guards, who were part of the NKVD troops at that time, stood to death.
