About the participants of the air assault near Novorossiysk to the Glebovka-Vasilyevka area.


On the night of February 3-4, 1943, on the instructions of the Military Council of the Black Sea fleet A 57-man parachute detachment was deployed behind enemy lines near Novorossiysk, consisting of seamen of a separate parachute paratroop company of the Black Sea Fleet Air Force, with the task of ensuring the landing of naval assault forces landed in the region of South Ozereyka. The detachment was tasked with disrupting communications and command and control of the troops guarding the coast, destroying headquarters and communications centers, undermining bridges and prohibiting the approach of reserves to the landing site from the Borisovka, Commune, Abrau-Durso and Bolshoi areas, as well as preventing the departure of enemy units from the area South Ozereyki.
It was originally planned to land 80 paratroopers from three PS-84 airplanes and a TB-3 bomber, but one of the TB-3 airplanes was unable to reach the target and returned to the airfield with the landing force on board. On the night of February 4 on the slope of Zhenya Gora, between the villages of Vasilyevka and Glebovka, three PS-84 aircraft dropped three groups of parachutists. The dropping of the paratroopers was carried out at the precisely designated place and at precisely the designated time with an interval of one minute between the groups. The night-air navigators, who know the landing area, Ivan Mukhin, Vladimir Kovalenko and Peter Radionov, were responsible for the accuracy of the release. The group commanders were foreman N.A. Shtabkin, lieutenants I.A. Kuzmin and P.M. Solovyov.

Having completed part of the assignment, Kuzmin led the fighters to Vasilyevka, where a group of foreman Chmyga acted. In battle, together they seized the village. In an effort to destroy the paratroopers, the enemy began to hastily pull up additional infantry forces, artillery and Tanks. In the morning, the Germans brought down a flurry of attacks on paratroopers.

Let's fight back! ”He first began to shoot from a machine gun and throw grenades. The rest followed his example, and all of them with battle came out of the encirclement several times outnumbered their opponent. This battle was led by Sergeant Muravyov.

        By the way, yes. after being already quite a big guy who served the army, I happened to get to the battlefield, where Brezhnev spent almost half a year with paratroopers on a bridgehead surrounded by heights, from which the Germans from mortars and machine guns were nailing ours, I strongly respected Ilyich. but he never laughed at his manner - he was told about it by a veteran Chernomorets who knew him personally from the battles on the Lesser Land before his book was wounded in the face at school.

    The chief of the political department of the 18th Army, Colonel Leonid Ilyich Brezhnev, sailed to Malaya Zemlya forty times, and this was dangerous, as some ships on the road were blown up by mines and died from direct shells and air bombs. Once the seiner, on which Brezhnev sailed, ran into a mine, the colonel was thrown into the sea ... the sailors picked him up ....

    Great courage people and soldiers! The eternal memory of their feat. It's a nightmare to fight on the Abraussky Peninsula! The forest is absolutely impassable. And to land at night on the mountains covered with forest, and even delaying the opening of the parachute - you also need to be a very brave man.

    I can’t be silent. While the top comment was written next to the buboite of Radio Vesti and a certain svyatenko designated the landing on Myskhako as a left operation. It’s time for the magazines to answer for the words.

      I have not heard the commentary of Vesti FM, but I am more than sure that they did not call Major Kunikov's landing operation a "left" operation ... secondary, rather ... and I don't think that in this case, someone is dancing on the bones ... just initially to the landing in the southern small lake, paramount importance was attached (this is supported by the composition of the forces and means intended for landing in the southern lake and by air and sea). The landing on small land turned out to be much more successful, which was used by the command of the fleet and the 18th Army.

        The Kunikov group’s landing was indeed originally planned as a diversion from the main landing in South Ozereyka. But there things didn’t go as planned, but switched to Malaya Zemlya. I'm not sure if Kunikov knew about the true purpose of his landing, but he was preparing people in earnest. Each of the fighters should have stood up to three in hand-to-hand combat, and in his pocket Kunikov always wore a training grenade. And so, by chance, talking with people, I threw this grenade at someone’s feet ... I did not have time to pick it up and throw it away in a couple of seconds - that's all, crap ... (I myself listened to this from a participant in the landing when I was young) meeting with veterans).
        And as I already wrote, I’m ready to forgive a lot of Brezhnev for the Star of Novorossiysk.

    Quote: Yoshkin Cat
    his jaw was not broken in a drunken brawl


    As far as I know, Leonid Ilyich received a "personal" reprimand from Joseph Vissarionovich for excessive bravado on "Malaya Zemlya". The heroic man was, although he did not find amphora in the sea and did not graze the cranes on the hang-glider. And they set up and ruined the court sycophants, all these Yakovlevs, together with the Volkogonovs ...
    However, "nothing lasts forever under the moon", stages of development of political authority:
    - excessive praise and mass psychosis of adoration;
    - unexpected "insight" of associates and the debunking of the "cult";
    - comprehension, understanding and respect.

    Hooked an article for a living! He himself was born and lived in Maykop, I know about landing on the airfield not from last hand. Indeed there was a glorious operation, they crushed the Luftwaffe right at the airfield. The pride in the Airborne Forces and the Children's Artillery Guard of the 40s model was hoo.
    Since 2000 I have been living in Novorossiysk and amphibious operations have been studied and bypassed all the places and the heroes are mentioned more than once, and more and more facts are surfacing ...

    The photo shows the end of the 40s in the "Valley of Death" on Malaya Zemlya ...
