    The 5th enemy counterattack was repelled. Behind her was the 6th, 7th ... During the 8th bullet, Kuliev was wounded in the face. Blood filled my eyes, but the brave warrior did not let go of the machine gun, continued to smash the enemy. So the 8th, and then the 9th Germans counterattack was repulsed.

        Hello Sergey. I am writing to you again. Yes. Pavel Fitisov is from Gatchina (or rather from the village of Bolshiye Kolpany, Gatchinsky District, Leningrad Region). First there was a "training" (military unit 43169 in the city of Podolsk). Then, military unit 73881 (stationed in the village of Kalininets, Naro-Fominsk district, Moscow region). What do you know about him? Write please. Human qualities, funny moments, personal impressions. Everything is interesting to us. We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for responding.
