President honored the memory of paratroopers

President honored the memory of paratroopers

Today, on the memory day of the soldiers of the 6 Company of the Pskov Division who died heroically in Chechnya, Vladimir Putin visited Pskov. The feat of the paratroopers says that patriotism is no stranger to youth; they proved: Russia can not be defeated, said the Supreme Commander.
The President arrived for a review of personnel in the 104 Guards Airborne Assault Regiment of the 76 Guards Airborne Assault Division. First, he laid flowers at the monument to the heroes, then spoke at a gala evening at the regimental club in front of relatives and servicemen. The plans - an informal meeting with the commanders of airborne divisions.

The paratroopers of the 6 Company of the Pskov Division engaged in an unequal battle with the terrorists and heroically died in the Argun gorge of Chechnya in the year 2000. "They will remain forever in stories Russian army and in our hearts, "- said the president.

The guys took the fight when a lot was decided in the fate of the country and its people, Vladimir Putin recalled. International terrorism waged a brutal, criminal war to "dismember Russia, violate its sovereignty and plunge its people into a fraternal bloody war among themselves," said the head of state. But the heroes of the 6 Company didn’t take a step back.

The paratroopers came to the regiment from different parts of the country, and they were hardly specially prepared for the feat. "But they were ready, as befits a soldier, to unconditionally fulfill the order," the president continued. "We were ready for any risk and any danger."

And when the time came, committed the feat. “They fought enemies as fearlessly as their grandfathers in the fight against fascism,” the head of state stressed. “They proved the holy continuity of generations at the cost of their lives.” “Let someone now say that patriotism is alien to our youth,” Vladimir Putin snapped.

“The fighters of the sixth company showed the whole world that it is impossible to win Russia, that at the critical moment its brave sons will stand to death for their Motherland,” said the head of state.

"Eternal glory to the immortal sixth company! Glory to all who died defending Russia!" - concluded the Supreme Commander.

During a visit to the 104 Guards Air Assault Regiment of the 76 Division, the President met with the commanders of the airborne forces. “Marines are always where the hardest thing is. It has always been and it will be this way. Airborne forces are the basis of the Russian rapid reaction forces,” the president said, speaking to the regimental personnel.

Later, at the meeting with the commanders, the head of state repeated the warm words addressed to the "blue berets". “I decided to gather you to talk about the problems of the army in general and on airborne forces in particular,” Vladimir Putin began the conversation. "It was not by chance that I said on the parade ground that our people love paratroopers," he remarked. "This is really true. So it is."

The supreme commander urged the paratroopers to "keep themselves in shape in the broadest sense of the word." One must be ready for any trials and effective work in the conditions of modern warfare, he instructed.

The president offered to talk about all the components of life and service: living conditions, training, weapons. And since the conversation was planned to be frank, the press was asked to retire almost immediately after it began.

In the presence of journalists, the commanders only thanked the head of state for taking care of the army. And one colonel from the special forces demonstrated that he was following the last the news. "The military college said that the issue of providing military personnel with permanent housing will be resolved," he said and asked to continue the construction of official housing.

        Any soldier knows what’s going into battle! For the Motherland, for relatives, for relatives, for comrades ... And the guys knew about it! They are Soldiers! Soldiers of Russia! No need to sprinkle ashes on our heads, we are building what they died for. We build for a long time, with errors, with blood in our hearts, with betrayal, but also with heroism, with self-denial.
        And we’ll build. Their death was not in vain! And Putin acted like a real man and like a real president when he arrived .. Well done!

        But do you think for whom they died?

        General Gunter Blumentritt, chief of staff of the 4 Army: “The behavior of the Russians, even in the first battle, was strikingly different from the behavior of the Poles and allies who were defeated on the Western Front. Even being in the circle of encirclement, the Russians stubbornly defended themselves. ”

        The author of the book writes: “The experience of the Polish and Western campaigns suggested that the success of the blitzkrieg strategy was to gain advantages by more skillful maneuvering. Even if you leave the resources outside the brackets, morale and the will to resist the enemy will inevitably be broken under the pressure of enormous and meaningless losses. From here logically follows the mass surrender of those who were surrounded by demoralized soldiers. In Russia, these “elementary” truths were turned upside down by a desperate, sometimes reaching fanaticism, Russian resistance in seemingly hopeless situations.

        IMHA .. what can I say ... just born like that.

      In 99, we went to the military commissariat together, Kohl shouted at the major why they didn’t take him into the army, it turned out that there was a namesake in the neighboring village - Nikolay Shalaev of the same name had already managed to serve the guy a sinful thing, that is, six months since Kolyan had not been taken into the army by mistake, major figured out and promised to send to the Airborne Forces, kept his promise.
      Nikolai Shalaev was killed in the Argun Gorge, awarded the Order of Courage posthumously. He was buried at the Bratskoye cemetery of the Second World War in the city of Lodeynoye Pole.

Do not rush there, you probably have so many more things to do in this world, look around, think and do not lose heart, it is a sin for a young healthy man to become discouraged. Over 13 years ago, how many guys were killed for us, for all, how many children were not born, no houses were built, no trees planted, things on our land could not be completely wrong, and you should be sad.

    MISLEADING \\ For courage 22 servicemen were awarded the title of Hero of Russia, 69 soldiers and officers were awarded "Orders of Courage", 63 of them - posthumously. \\
    In violation of the laws, commandments, and charters of God, presidents, deputies, oligarchs, businessmen, and governments all prepare bloodshed with their deeds, which is not even suspected. The lawlessness they do is returned to the nations (accomplices in affairs) first in the form of natural disasters, then bloodshed. Here comes the name of the bloodsucker shedding blood. If you try to explain to them, then they cannot understand this, because they have an unclean spirit that blocks the words of truth and truth.
    In Russia, “scum” is removed from the blood in Chechnya, the so-called fight against terrorists and armed gangs, and the people are presented as protecting the constitutional order. To make it more convincing that they’re fighting for good reason, they confer the title of Hero of Russia, are awarded with medals and orders of one state, but for different belligerents. The people paid with blood, the wicked can continue to exist, and so on in a circle.
    NATO soldiers "scum of blood" clean up in the so-called peacekeeping operations, while many of them become dogs and killers. The Ukrainian military, participating in the so-called peacekeeping operations, also remove "blood scale."
    Those who send Russian, Ukrainian military-entangled people to participate in hostilities on the territory of a foreign state (except Yugoslavia) “take” their souls, making officers and soldiers killers, and the killer has no life. He bought a penny and ruined his soul. Instead of putting things in order at home and thereby saving their souls, they, like a soulless womb, go penniless, losing their lives. Let's add bloodshed on the roads of Ukraine here. According to statistics from the traffic police, Ukraine is the first in Europe in the number of deaths in road accidents. During 2012, about 5000 people died in road accidents in Ukraine, and 38000 were injured. In Afghanistan, over 10 years of hostilities killed 15 thousand troops. If you roughly round the death toll, not only in traffic accidents, but also murders committed under various circumstances during the leadership of Kravchuk, Kuchma, Yushchenko, Yanukovych, it turns out that seven Afghan wars swept through Ukraine. So it seems to be imperceptible, but the “scale” of blood is regularly removed for the fact that the people serve the beast.
    Everything is much simpler in this life. About the same as in the restaurant dined and be sure to pay. So it is here nations participated in a devilish meal - pay, only pay with blood.
    Each new price increase (sin) is the filling of the cup of sins, and this is one step closer to the civil war. The civil war in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus has already been prepared by shitty (hell is a bitter root) employers, but how it goes with little or big blood depends on the people, or how the rams put on opposite sides in Chechnya will shoot at each other, or as the Lord advises. “And cast the worthless slave into outer darkness: there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Having said this, he exclaimed: whoever has ears to hear, let him hear! ” (Matthew 25:30).
    Nobody has been able to “jump over” the laws of God; one does not need to hide one’s head in the sand like an ostrich; the people themselves “prepared” a civil war by participating in the affairs of the wicked. Participated in a devilish meal - pay the price
    . For so that people pass a lot of bloodshed now we need a "SPIRITUAL EXPLOSION" (mass appeal to God for help) of the Slavs, which was predicted by the Elder Lavrenty of Chernigov. Then the Lord will give enemies into the hands of the people.

I represent the slobbering rage of the "soldiers" of Allah, who paid for the passage and got stuck at a height .... This is how a Russian soldier fights ... Sold and devoted ... So think about what will happen if we fight competently, according to science ... Bow to the ground to the guys ... Thank you ...

    And one spetsnaz colonel showed that he was following the latest news. "The military collegium said that the issue of providing servicemen with permanent housing will be resolved," he stated and asked to continue the construction of service housing.

    What is this here?
    Even if purely in text, then official housing is far from permanent!

    But damn it, damn it! Why is that!? Why not even write about them in history textbooks !? Why who is to blame for their deaths, from the leadership and command of the Armed Forces and the country were not convicted, brought to criminal responsibility !?
    If we now tell these guys that after only ten years, and in Moscow, like “war-scorched” children, they will drive expensive cars and shoot in the air, extinguish the Eternal Flame on mass graves ... Besides obscene words, we don’t hear ....
    I’m sure if today some people in Pskov were sincere in their actions and told the truth to the country, near the grave of whom they betrayed ... This country would have woken up completely different ..
    Glory to the Airborne Forces! Glory to the Russian Army! Glory to the Sons of Russia!

    Bright memory...

    Below is the opinion of the commander of the Airborne Forces, Hero of Russia, Colonel General Vladimir Anatolyevich Shamanov

    The sixth company could be saved. The paratroopers who fought with the Khattab militants became victims of an unsubscribed order

    The paratroopers of the 6th company of the 104th regiment of the 76th Airborne Division died in the battle in the North Caucasus in 2000 due to an order not given in time. The federal forces should have been forbidden to leave the border of the artillery support zone, and then the death of military personnel could have been avoided. Such an opinion was expressed on the day of the 13th anniversary of the tragedy by the commander of the Airborne Forces, Hero of Russia, Colonel General Vladimir Shamanov.
    "The analysis, which was carried out in hot pursuit and years later, shows that in difficult weather conditions, in the absence of the ability to support the units from the air, it was necessary to indicate to the paratroopers the zone beyond which they could not advance," he said in an interview with RIA. News". According to Shamanov, 13 years ago, the paratroopers, fulfilling their official duty, did not receive such instructions, and therefore lost the support of artillery.

    Errors in the command led to the fact that the battle took place at different lines and with a total numerical superiority of the members of the gangs. “The paratroopers were moving on the march, in fact, in non-united, scattered subunits and were deprived of many conditions in order to conduct an organized confrontation,” Shamanov stated. The general explained that the rules of command and control had been violated.

    The battle of paratroopers of the 6th company under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Mark Evtyukhin with fighters of the field commander Khattab took place on March 1, 2000 in the area of ​​the settlement of Ulus-Kert. Military personnel at the cost of their lives prevented the breakthrough of 2,5 thousand terrorists, destroying 700 of them. Of the 90 fighters of the company, only six survived.

    For the courage shown in battle, 22 servicemen received the title of Hero of Russia, 69 were awarded the Order of Courage (63 of them posthumously). In memory of the paratroopers in the Staropromyslovsky district of Grozny, a street was named and a memorial complex was opened.

    As Putin says tolerantly, although thanks to him and the corrupt generals, not only these men were merged, but also many others. Not my goddamn brothers.

    I'll lie that reinforcements will come -
    We cannot stand otherwise.
    Patience became a gray slush
    And the weapon wants to sleep.

    How long have we not believed in salvation!
    But the boys look into my eyes ...
    I’ll lie that reinforcements will come -
    Because it is impossible otherwise!

    We are familiar with the burial rite
    We are unaccustomed to tea and cabbage ...
    I’ll lie that reinforcements will come,
    Over the grave of murdered friends.

    Singing is heard above the high
    Smoke creeps beneath the high ...
    I’ll lie that reinforcements will come -
    And probably we can resist.

    The last wound is aching again
    They ask for cereal boots and belly ...
    I’ll lie that reinforcements will come ...
    After all, it will certainly come!

    When flaming armor
    cools down with a cripple
    living will get me out
    a handful of ash from the compartment.
    Yes, I would survive ... Though in spite
    bearded man with a grenade launcher ...
    But this time, no luck.
    War ... It happens, what is there ...
    Yes, and also: from under the Shawl,
    do not be ashes - just a body,
    guys wouldn’t leave with me
    all died b, such a thing.
    And so - light in the mountains,
    a handful of ash - the load is not heavy,
    won't hurt the trail
    put some stretch marks,
    capable of "spirits" to detain -
    let them breathe with them.
    ... Well, guys, in god-soul-mother,
    come even though you are alive
