Two Russian airborne troops killed during joint exercises in Belarus

58

Two Russian paratroopers were killed during a joint exercise by Russian and Belarusian Airborne Forces units held at the Gozhsky training ground in the Grodno region. This was reported by the Ministry of Defense.

According to the military department, during the landing, due to a strong gust of wind, two parachutes descended, as a result of which both domes went out. One of the servicemen tried to rescue both of them with a reserve parachute, but the attempts were in vain. As stated in the Ministry of Defense, despite the efforts of doctors, both paratroopers died from their injuries.

The military department noted that both paratroopers were contract servicemen, were highly qualified and were instructors in parachute training.

Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry announced the transfer of an airborne unit to Belarus as part of a "surprise check" for joint exercises with Belarusian paratroopers. The landing from the Il-76 military transport aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces took place on the territory of the Gozhsky training ground near Grodno.

The exercises are associated with the growing tension at the borders of the Union State of Russia and Belarus. How long the exercises will last and whether additional forces will be transferred to the republic, the Defense Ministry does not report.

Earlier, at the training ground in the Republic of Belarus, Russian Tu-160 bombers were bombed as part of training combat missions.

            Unfortunately, this often happens during exercises. I personally saw three two hundredths during the service. And, all for one reason: improper planning / irresponsible execution.

          When you sing songs on earth,
          The sky will sing along quietly to you.
          Those who died for their Motherland in flight,
          We continue our flight forever ...

          We're not silent shadows at all
          We are the wind and the cry of cranes ...
          The dead in the sky for the motherland
          Become the sky above her.

          We breathe warming birds' nests
          We lull the children at midnight.
          It seems to you that stars are watching from the sky
          And we are looking at you from heaven ...

              Yes I understand! Only I realized that he was either a fake son (which is most likely) of the one who died in Afghanistan (a kind of son of Lieutenant Schmidt), or just a lame son (if his father really died there) ....!
              My children (for example) know very well that I served in Afghanistan, and not some "avgan" for more than 2 years. And I talked and communicate with children, widows, parents of the dead brothers, and they all know perfectly well how the places where their relatives died are called correctly!

        Apparently, you need to review the safety precautions in order to avoid repetitions in the future.

          What is the safety technique for combat alert? These were not training jumps. There, yes, with strong gusts of wind, jumps are canceled. It's a pity for the boys, but this is the kind of service.

            The safety precautions of jumps and parachutes as such, in this case, I see 3 points that require verification ..
            1. The minimum allowed interval between jumping.
            2. The maximum permissible wind speed for jumping.
            3. Engineering study of the parachute system to prevent overlaps.

            A combat alarm is not an excuse for a senseless risk, you will not throw off a landing in a tornado, or inadequately overload an aircraft, just because there is a "combat alarm". The task of the officer is to find an adequate way of executing orders, and not to drive the personnel to slaughter, hoping at random.
            This tragedy showed that not everything can be foreseen. But in such difficult lessons, you need to learn and correct mistakes, and not look for excuses for inaction!
            Anyone who calls to take this for granted and do nothing - just spit at the sacrifice of these guys and leave the door open for future tragedies. stop

    This is most likely the consequences of the organization of the exercise, in particular, the underestimation of weather conditions.
    The information passed much earlier than the Russian official structures confirmed it. This is not a good trend. The bitter truth must be communicated. The truth is always bitter.

      So the information was earlier, but on the VO they discussed the teachings themselves and not who even wrote in the comments about the emergency. Do you know why? They would just throw minuses and a label they would hang because if a tragedy happens, then besides "We remember we grieve," they only know how to write. But if an article or commentary is published where the authors ask themselves what the authorities are doing so that there are no such cases and who will respond to sloppiness, then grief patriots will pour out so much dirt in the comments that you don't even want to write.

          So the first grief a patriot showed up immediately hung a label. And they are afraid that a minus on chickens is not scary, it's scary when a person has a TV set. And in general, when such emergencies occur, I try not to comment and not put pros and cons, you know why by that that some do not sincerely write to them all that it is necessary to raise the rating. After all, they are not interested in the fact that two people died behind the ambitions of politicians.

    Eternal memory to these guys.

    I had a convergence in the army. There was the 12th jump, as it turned out to be the last, I didn't have a chance to jump anymore. The domes collided, then parted without extinguishing. I was a little higher, raised my legs, walked my ass on the dome of a stranger. One line of the other parachute somewhere behind the knapsack clung to, somehow managed to unhook it with a hand. On earth, everyone was in a strong a..ue. At that moment there was no fear, only much later I realized what could have been. But to be honest, I was ready to cut the lines and open the spare tire. I do not know whether it would be successful or not if the situation escalated, but thank God everything went well.
    And during his entire service, only one officer crashed on a sports parachute, got entangled in the lines and could not do anything. By the way, he was a very cool officer. Marine Corps Training Center "Saturn" in Sevastopol, Captain Svirsky. Maybe someone will read from those who knew him, remember.

        Thanks. I have not read the article before. He knew about the incident from the words of his colleagues, some of whom were on the plane with him during the last jump.
        I knew all the officers mentioned in the article, except for two. I was in Saturn in the previous set, our release was in the fall of 82nd.

      This means that fundamentally new parachutes need to be developed with a third combination system along with two parachutes, something like jet braking at the ground and deployment of a softening cushion if the main baths do not open or the wind blew away here.

    In the USSR, there was a standard for the death of paratroopers during exercises. 3 ppm or 0,3% of the personnel. Those. if out of a thousand paratroopers three or less died, the Ministry of Defense did not create a commission, the circumstances were clarified in the usual way. Horror of course. The guys are very sorry, to tears. The cost of a country's combat capability.
