Russians do not surrender: fight in Pakistan

Russians do not surrender: fight in Pakistan

28 has passed since the day of this uprising. 26 April 1985, twelve emaciated, but not broken, Soviet soldiers began a battle against a hundredfold superior enemy forces — regular units of the Pakistani army, hundreds of Afghan dushmans and their American instructors, led by future Afghan President Barhanuddin Rabbani ...

"... At 21.00, when the entire staff of the school was lined up on the parade ground to perform namaz, the former Soviet soldiers removed sentries from the warehouses of the artillery and on the tower, freed all prisoners, armed themselves with small arms, artillery, captured in warehouses weapons and took positions with the aim of destroying cadets, teachers, and guard units ”(from the report of the 206 agent to the Shire Intelligence Center of the MGB of Afghanistan).

This happened in the town of Badaber, 24 kilometers from Peshawar - the second largest city in Pakistan. Here, under the guise of a refugee camp, was the training and terrorist center of the Islamic Society of Afghanistan (IRA). The general patronage over the center was carried out by the leader of the IOA B. Rabbani, the leader was field commander Gulbuddin Hekmatyar.

The center occupied an area of ​​500 ha. The term of training of cadets was 6 months. The faculty was staffed by Egyptians and Pakistanis - 65 instructors in total. The head of the center is Major of the Armed Forces of Pakistan Kudratulla. When it 6 advisers from the United States. Senior - someone Varsan. After completing their studies, the cadets were sent to the territory of Afghanistan by the leaders of the IRA of the provincial, district and volost divisions of the provinces of Nangarhar, Paktia and Kandahar.

The center housed 6 ammunition depots and 3 underground prisons, where Soviet and Afghan prisoners of war were detained. The mode of content is very strict, isolated. In the underground prisons were “incorrigible shuravi” - captured in battle, resisting, not converted to Islam. They began to be brought here in 1983-84, shortly before the events described. Before that, they were mainly kept in special pits-zindans, using them for the most difficult jobs - in the quarries, loading and unloading ammunition. For the slightest offense, and often without such, they were severely beaten.

Prisoners of underground prisons were nameless. Instead of surnames and names - Muslim nicknames. The obstinate and recalcitrant were branded after the example of the fascist executioners. Starved, giving a day a sip of water and scanty salty food in which “char” and “nasvay” - the cheapest drugs - were sprinkled. They were held with shackled shackles, from which not only skin, but also bones, festered on his hands and feet.

The “masters of that world,” as their foreign advisers called the guards, also invented more sophisticated torture. Especially they took care that a person “breathed the smell of death” from the first hour of bondage. With especially obstinate, skin was torn off, ears and tongues were cut off, chained to decaying corpses, every day they were stitched with iron rods ... During the captivity, Soviet soldiers turned into walking skeletons. And, in spite of everything, they rebelled.

According to the memoirs of Rabbani, an uprising began tall guy, who managed to disarm the guard who brought the evening soup. He opened the camera and let the freedom of other prisoners. Spooks and their instructors come to their senses only when all the weapons-prison area was in the hands of the rebels. The alarm was raised by all the inhabitants of the camp. Urgent began blocking zone warehouses. Were caused by the aid of the Pakistani army.

The most severe clash lasted all night. After a series of unsuccessful attacks, already deep in the night, Rabbani personally appealed to the rebels to surrender to the proposal. They replied with a categorical refusal and demanded to call representatives of the UN, the Red Cross or the Afghan and Soviet embassies in Islamabad.

Rabbani promised to think, knowing full well: to fulfill the requirement is to make public the fact of secret detention in the prisoners who declared themselves to neutral Pakistan, which is a gross violation of the elementary norms of international law. The Mujahideen and Pakistani troops were ordered to do away with the adamant "shuravi" in any way.

Followed by further assaults. And offers to surrender. The answer was always the same. Sturm followed the storm, the rebel forces melted away, however, and the enemy was carrying sensory loss. It is not known how much this fight lasted a handful of doomed people with superior tens, hundreds of times forces. Certainly to the last bullet, to the last man - they did not expect mercy from the butchers ...

Desperate to quell the rebellion, the command of the armed forces of Pakistan has decided: to shoot the rebels of multiple rocket launchers and heavy artillery mounted on the direct fire. In the morning 8 27 April Rabbani personally took command of the operation. At the same time the artillery was struck airstrike.

"The area of ​​the uprising was blocked by mujahideen troops, tank and artillery units of the 11th Army Corps of the Pakistan Armed Forces. The Grad MLRS and the Pakistan Air Force helicopter link were used against the rebels. 40th Army intelligence reconnaissance recorded a radio interception between their crews and aviation base, as well as the report of one of the crews about the bombing of the camp. Only through the joint efforts of the Mujahideen and Pakistani regular forces was it possible to crush this uprising. Most of the rebels died the death of the brave in an unequal battle, and the seriously wounded were finished off on the spot. "

According to one of the versions, the rebels, realizing the hopelessness of their position, blew themselves up. From the 4 broadcast of Liberty Radio Station on May 1985: “A representative of the US Space Command headquarters in the state of Colorado reported that an aerial explosion of satellite data showed an explosion of a large destructive force in the north-western province of Pakistan, which occurred on April 27 from .g. (The fire broke out the office of the center, which contained lists of Soviet prisoners of war).

Dushmans reported that 97 had been killed by guards and other “brothers”. According to other data - about 200 people, including about 100 Afghan dushmans, 9 representatives of the Pakistani authorities, 28 officers of the Armed Forces of Pakistan. 3 rocket launchers Grad (BM-13), about 2000 thousands of missiles of various types and shells, 40 guns, mortars and machine guns were destroyed. Killed 6 military instructors from the United States.

Since the beginning of May 1985, all information about the events in Badabera has been tightly blocked by the authorities of Pakistan. The event was visited by Lieutenant-General Fazl Haq, Governor of the North-West Frontier Province, and General Zia Ul Haq, President of Pakistan, who had a difficult and unpleasant conversation with the leaders of the Duchy. After this conversation, the field commander G.Hekmatyyar, who was in charge of the defeated training and terrorist center, gave an order to his troops, which contained a clause: “Do not take Russian prisoners. When captured destroy on the spot throughout the territory of Afghanistan "...

However, something still leaked. And in the same May, 1985, the world news agencies spread around a sensational news - In one of the “Afghan refugee camps”, Soviet soldiers captured by the Mujahideen raised an uprising. This information was transmitted by 27 in May and the Novosti Press Agency.

Soviet and later Russian side has repeatedly appealed to the Pakistani authorities for permission to visit the camp, but was refused. From the official letters from the representative of the Russian authorities to the Chairman of the Committee for the soldiers-internationalists of the Council of CIS Heads of Government:

“Information about the heroic uprising of Soviet prisoners of war in the Badaber camp is confirmed by the documents of the US Department of State available at our disposal, the materials of the MGB of Afghanistan, the testimony of direct eyewitnesses and participants of these events from the Mujahideen and Pakistanis, as well as statements by B. Rabbani (IAA), G Hekmatyar (IPA) and others. In addition, at the beginning of 1992, Pakistan’s Deputy Foreign Minister Shahriyar Khan officially gave the names of the 6 participants in the Badabera uprising ... "

These names are: private Vaskov Igor Nikolaevich, born in 1963, Kostroma region; Corporal Dudkin Nikolay Iosifovich, born in 1961, Altai Territory; Private Zverkovich Alexander Nikolaevich, born in 1964, Vitebsk region (Belarus); ml. Sergeant Korshenko Sergey Vasilievich, born 1964, Belaya Tserkov (Ukraine); Private Levchishin Sergey Nikolaevich, born in 1964, Samara Region; Private Samin Nikolai Grigorievich, born 1964, Tselinograd Region (Kazakhstan). In their time, the lines of these guys were later devoted to music and turned into songs:

In the mountains near Peshawar in Pakistan,
Deciding the shame of the captivity blood wash off,
On the night a group of prisoners revolted,
To live a free day.

We are not broken slave pads,
And even the machines did not take us,
Enemies are cowardly all direct fire,
The Pakistani guns were shot.

And let us a little, but no one faltered,
Though death's eyes look to our eyes,
Soviet soldiers it means
That even the dead will not win us.

Our Motherland is a star shining far,
And catches the eye of the summons this light,
We will not retreat for anything in the world
And there are no cowards between us.

We are fighting, but the strength is gone,
Living less and less chances are not equal
Know the Motherland, you have not changed,
Your misfortunes are in trouble.

            At that time, my father served in the Airborne Forces in Afghanistan, told me about these events, by the way when I began to ask a little about this particular song (grew up under the songs of the Blue Berets), our people knew about the events, and began to transfer troops to the border, to shoot many from fighting (from the mountains) and transferring there, they quickly dispersed the spirits through the mountains and very cruelly (so as not to prevent the columns from moving to the border in the gorges and passes, (for a long time they did not protrude)), but there was no order to cross the border.

      I recommend everyone to read the book Living in Help. Notes of the Afghan. Victor Nikolaev
      “Living in help” is an ancient monastic and military “amulet”, a belt with Orthodox prayers of protection. “Living in help” is the first words of the 90th psalm of the holy king-prophet David, who spiritually protects from all sorts of troubles and misfortunes. “Living in Help” is a book by Victor Nikolaev. She tells the story of a Russian warrior who went through Afghan hell, through many "hot spots", preserved by the prayers of his mother, wife and daughter. There are no fictional characters or fictional events in the book, although in rare cases names and geographical names have been changed. Viktor Nikolaev wrote about his own life, about the people whom his fate faced.

      And the film, by the way, is in my opinion, it was shot in the 80s, as I recall, I don’t remember, but the plot is similar. This case is extra evidence that the main thing is not weapons and not money, but the spirit and conscience of a soldier! Russian soldier! eternal memory to heroes hi
      The story of one soldier:

      Volodya did not have a walkie-talkie, there were no new "bells and whistles" in the form of dry alcohol, drinking tubes, and other junk. There was not even unloading; he did not take the bulletproof vest himself. Volodya had only an old grandfather's hunting rifle with captured German optics, 30 rounds, a flask of water and cookies in a padded jacket pocket. Yes, there was a hat with ear flaps. True, the boots were good; after last year’s fishing, he bought them at a fair in Yakutsk, right on the rafting from Lena from some visiting traders.
      That's how he fought for the third day. Companion fishery, 18-year-old Yakut from a distant deer camp. It had to happen that he came to Yakutsk for salt and ammunition, accidentally saw piles of corpses of Russian soldiers on the streets of Grozny in the dining room on TV, smoking tanks and some words about "Dudayev's snipers". This struck Volodya in the head, so much that the hunter returned to the camp, took his earned money, and sold the alluvial gold coin. He took his grandfather’s rifle and all the cartridges, put an icon of Nikolai the Pleasant in his bosom and went to fight Yakut for the Russian cause.
      It’s better not to remember how he was driving, how he sat three times in the bullpen, how many times a rifle was taken. But, still, a month later, the Yakut Volodya arrived in Grozny.
      Volodya heard only about one of the generals regularly fighting in Chechnya, and began to look for him in the February thaw. Finally, Yakut was lucky, and he got to the headquarters of General Rokhlin.

      In addition to his passport, the only document he had was a handwritten certificate from the military commissar that Vladimir Kolotov, a hunter-hunter by profession, was sent to the war, with the signature of the military commissar. The paper, which was frayed on the road, saved his life more than once.
      Rokhlin, surprised that someone had arrived at the war of his own free will, ordered Yakut to go to his place.
      Volodya, squinting at the dim bulbs blinking from the generator, which made his slanted eyes blur even more, like a bear, went sideways into the basement of the old building, which housed the general’s headquarters temporarily.
      - Excuse me, please, you are that General Rokhlya? - Volodya asked respectfully.
      “Yes, I am Rokhlin,” the tired general answered, peering inquiringly at a short man dressed in a wadded padded jacket with a backpack and a rifle behind him.
      “Would you like some tea, hunter?”
      “Thank you, Comrade General.” I haven’t drunk hot for three days already. I will not refuse.
      Volodya took his iron mug out of his backpack and handed it to the general. Rokhlin himself poured him tea to the brim.
      - I was told that you came to the war yourself. For what purpose, Kolotov?
      - I saw on TV how the Chechens of our sniper felled. I can't stand it, comrade general. It is a shame, however. That came to throw them. No money, nothing. I, comrade General Rokhlya, will go hunting at night myself. Let the place show me where the cartridges and food will be put, and I will do the rest myself. If I get tired, I will come in a week, I will sleep in the warmth of the day and go again. Radio and all this is not necessary ... it is hard.
      The surprised Rokhlin nodded his head.
      - Take it, Volodya, at least a new SVDashka. Give him a rifle!
      - Do not, comrade general, I go out with my scythe in the field. Just give me the ammo, now I have only 30 left ...

        The film is called "The Peshawar Waltz" of 1994. But I don’t really like it. Something is messy or something. Even in the first part of the two-part action movie "The Afghan", the part is also inspired by this uprising along the way ... I think it’s better to read or the documentary a good movie to watch, than a bad art. Life is worse. About the flight of our pilots on the IL-76.

    Continued, everything did not fit

    So Volodya began his war, sniper.
    He slept for XNUMX hours in staff kungs, despite mine shelling and a terrible artillery fire. He took cartridges, food, water and went on the first "hunt". At headquarters they forgot about him. Only intelligence every three days regularly brought cartridges, food and, most importantly, water to a designated place. Each time, she was convinced that the parcel had disappeared.
    The first radio operator to remember Volodya was the “interceptor” radio operator.
    - Lev Yakovlevich, the “Czechs” have a panic on the air. They say that the Russians, that is, with us, have a kind of black sniper who works at night, boldly walks around their territory and brings down their godless personnel. Maskhadov even appointed 30 thousand dollars for his head. His handwriting is like this - this young man of Chechens beats right in the eye. Why only in the eye - the dog knows him ...
    And then the staff remembered Yakut Volodya.
    “He takes food and cartridges from the cache regularly,” the intelligence chief reported.
    - And since we had not exchanged a word with him, we hadn’t even seen it even once. Well, how he left you then on the other side ...

    One way or another, the report noted that our snipers also give their snipers a light. Because Volodin's work produced such results - from 16 to 30, a person put a fisherman by a shot in the eye.
    Chechens saw that the feds had a hunter-hunter on the Minute Square. And as the main events of those terrible days took place on this square, a sniper of Chechen volunteers came out to catch the sniper.

    Then, in February 95th, at the Minute, thanks to Rokhlin’s cunning plan, our troops had already crushed the so-called “Abkhazian” battalion of Shamil Basayev by almost three-quarters of the personnel. A considerable role was played here by the carbine of Yakut Volodya. Basayev promised a golden Chechen star to the one who will bring the corpse of a Russian sniper. But nights passed in unsuccessful searches. Five volunteers walked along the front lines in search of Volodya's “couches”, placed stretch marks wherever he could appear in the direct visibility of his positions. However, this was such a time when groups, on the one and the other hand, broke through the enemy’s defenses and penetrated deeply into its territory. Sometimes so deep that there was no longer any chance of escaping to their own. But Volodya slept during the day under the roofs and in the basements of houses. The corpses of the Chechens - the night "work" of the sniper - were buried the next day.

    Then, tired of losing 20 people every night, Basaev called out from the reserves in the mountains the foremen, a teacher from the camp for training young shooters, sniper-Arab Abubakar. Volodya and Abubakar could not help but meet in a night battle, these are the laws of sniper war.
    And they met in two weeks. More precisely, Abubakar hooked Volodya from a driller’s rifle. A powerful bullet that once killed Soviet paratroopers in Afghanistan, half a kilometer away, pierced a padded jacket and slightly hooked a hand, just below the shoulder. Volodya, feeling a rush of hot wave of oozing blood, realized that the hunt was finally on him too.
    The buildings on the opposite side of the square, or rather their ruins, merged in Volodin's optics into a single line. “What did the optics shine?”, The hunter thought, and he knew the cases when the sable saw a sight that sparkled in the sun and went away. The place he chose was located under the roof of a five-story apartment building. Snipers always love to be upstairs to see everything. And he was lying under the roof - under a sheet of old tin, he did not wet the wet snow rain, which was either walking or stopping.

    PDM80 3 May 2013 08: 19 New
    Abubakar tracked Volodya only on the fifth night - tracked down his pants. The fact that the Yakut pants were ordinary, cotton. This is an American camouflage, which was often worn by Chechens, soaked in a special composition, in it the form was not clearly visible in night vision devices, and the domestic form was shone with a bright green light. So Abubakar and "figured out" Yakut in the powerful night optics of his "Boer", made to order by English gunsmiths back in the 70s.
    One bullet was enough, Volodya rolled out from under the roof and painfully fell with his back on the steps of the stairs. “Most importantly, I didn’t break the rifle,” the sniper thought.
    - Well, it means a duel, yes, Mr. Chechen sniper! - Yakut told himself mentally without emotion.
    Volodya deliberately stopped shredding the "Chechen order". The neat row of the 200s with his sniper "autograph" on the eye stopped. “Let them believe that I am killed,” Volodya decided.
    He himself only did what he looked for, from where did the enemy sniper get to him.
    Two days later, already in the afternoon, he found Abubakar's “couch”. He also lay under the roof, under a half-bent roofing sheet on the other side of the square. Volodya would not have noticed him if the Arab sniper had not been betrayed by a bad habit - he smoked anasha. Once every two hours, Volodya caught in the optics a light bluish haze rising above the roofing sheet and immediately carried away by the wind.
    “So I found you, abrek! You can’t do without drugs! Good ...”, the Yakut hunter thought with triumph, he did not know that he was dealing with an Arab sniper who had passed through Abkhazia and Karabakh. But Volodya did not want to kill him just like that by shooting a roofing sheet. For snipers, this was not the case, and for fur hunters, even more so.
    “Well, you smoke while lying down, but you have to get to the toilet,” Volodya decided in cold blood and waited.
    Only three days later, he calculated that Abubakar was crawling out from under the sheet to the right, and not to the left, he quickly did the job and returned to the “couch”. To "get" the enemy Volodya had to change his position at night. He could not do anything again, because any new roofing sheet would immediately give out his new location. But Volodya found two fallen logs from the rafters with a piece of tin a little to the right, about fifty meters from his point. The place was perfect for shooting, but very inconvenient for the "couch". For two more days Volodya was looking for a sniper, but he did not show up. Volodya had already decided that the enemy had left completely when the next morning he suddenly saw that he had “opened up”. Three seconds to aim with a slight exhalation, and the bullet went to the target. Abubakar was slain on the spot in his right eye. For some reason, against a bullet, he fell from the roof flat on the street. A large greasy stain of blood spread through the mud on the square of the Dudaev Palace, where an Arab sniper was shot on the spot by one bullet of a hunter.
    “Well, I got you,” thought Volodya without any enthusiasm or joy. He realized that he must continue his battle, showing a characteristic handwriting. Thus, to prove that he is alive, and that the enemy did not kill him a few days ago.
    Volodya peered into optics at the motionless body of a defeated enemy. Nearby, he saw the Bur, which he did not recognize, since he had not seen such rifles before. In a word, a hunter from the remote taiga!

    And the last
    And here he was surprised: the Chechens began to crawl out into the open to pick up the body of the sniper. Volodya took aim. Three went out, bent over the body.
    “Let them lift and carry, then I will start shooting!” - Volodya triumphed.
    The Chechens really raised the body of three. Three shots were fired. Three bodies fell on the dead Abubakar.
    Four more Chechen volunteers jumped out of the ruins and, throwing off the bodies of their comrades, tried to pull out the sniper. From the side, the Russian machine gun earned, but the queues went a little higher, without harming the hunched Chechens.
    “Oh, infantry-mabuta! You’re only spending ammo ...”, thought Volodya.
    Four more shots were fired, almost merging into one. Four more corpses have already formed a bunch.
    Volodya killed 16 fighters that morning. He did not know that Basayev gave the order to get the body of an Arab by any means before it began to darken. He had to be sent to the mountains to bury there before sunrise, as an important and respectable Mujahid.
    A day later, Volodya returned to the headquarters of Rokhlin. The general immediately accepted him as a dear guest. The news of the duel of two snipers has already flown around the army.
    - Well, how are you, Volodya, tired? Do you want home?
    Volodya warmed his hands at the "potbelly stove".
    “Everything, Comrade General, has completed his work, it’s time to go home.” Spring work begins at the camp. The military commissar released me only for two months. My two younger brothers worked for me all this time. It’s time and honor to know ...
    Rokhlin shook his head knowingly.
    - Take a good rifle, my chief of staff will draw up the documents ...
    - Why, I have a grandfather. - Volodya lovingly hugged the old carbine.
    The general did not dare to ask a question for a long time. But curiosity took over.
    - How many enemies have you struck down? They say more than a hundred ... Chechens were talking.
    Volodya lowered his eyes.
    - 362 action movie, comrade general.
    - Well then, go home, now we can handle it ...
    - Comrade general, if anything, call me again, I will deal with the work and come for the second time!
    On Volodya's face there was a frank concern for the entire Russian Army.
    - By God, I will come!
    The Order of Courage found Volodya Kolotov after six months. On this occasion, they were celebrated by the whole collective farm, and the commissar allowed the sniper to go to Yakutsk to buy new boots - the old ones were already leaky in Chechnya. The hunter stepped on some pieces of iron.
    On the day when the whole country learned about the death of General Lev Rokhlin, Volodya also heard about the incident on the radio. For three days he drank alcohol at the cottage. He was found drunk in a temporary hut by other hunters who returned from fishing. Volodya kept repeating drunk:
    - Nothing, Comrade General Rokhlya, if we need to come, you just say ...
    He was sober in the nearest creek, but Volodya has since no longer put on his people the Order of Courage.

      The country itself - yes .. created by the British counterbalance of India and a springboard for action against Russia. But here is their army .. In 2000, I worked as a judge in one regional center, and there was one rowdy - I closed him three times in a hooligan for 10-15 days, and other judges too. And somehow the cops tell me that this guy is a hero, he has a personal weapon in the regional military registration and enlistment office and a lot of awards for the Afghan, and they don’t give him a criminal out of respect, they’re limited to adm. materials. And I just closed it once again. I went to the district detention center, asked to be taken out of the cell, we sat on a bench and smoked for a long time. He told me a lot. He served in the special detachment of the KGB of the USSR, then there was no Pennant and Alpha. Entered Kabul, was in the cordon of the amine palace during the assault, they blocked and disarmed the Afghan units, and then fought in the mountains. The purpose of the operations was the destruction of spiritual bases. And in pursuit of the bases and the departing spirits, they often deliberately entered the territory of Pakistan and wet the spirits at their bases there. And they often fought with Pakistani border guards, and sometimes with special forces. And he spoke about the Pakistanis very respectfully. He said that they were fighting like animals, and at the same time competently, they had no fear, and these battles were always heavy and with losses, sometimes it even came to hand-to-hand fighting .. I wished him then to stop drinking and take up his mind. And he said that he had never seen a judge like me, and promised that he would take up the mind. I don’t know, I soon left there and have never been there again ..

Simple NATO soldiers at first thought that the Russians would hang out. And then they began to think that it was better not to mess with the Russians.

    On May 27, 1985, the general public of the USSR learned about the incident from the materials of the Novosti press agency. The message is purely political; there were no words of condolences to relatives, nor admiration for the heroism of the prisoners, nor sorrow for their tragic fate. Their death was used as an occasion once again to "scold" the administration of R. Reagan. But "recognized" Katyn ...
    Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, unlike Russia, which is the legal successor of the USSR, back in 2003 presented their heroes with awards on February 8, 2003, by the Decree of the President of Ukraine "for personal courage and heroism shown in the performance of military, official, civil duty" junior sergeant Sergey Korshenko was awarded the Order of Courage of the 3rd degree (posthumously), and Junior Sergeant Nikolai Samin by the Decree of the President of Kazakhstan, the Order of Aybyn (Valor) of the 3rd degree ("for courage and selflessness shown during performance of military and official duty, as well as for feats committed in protecting the interests of the state, "posthumously).
    Of the entire "Badaber" list of heroes presented for rewarding by General Aushev, officials from the Ministry of Defense chose only one - Sergey Levchishin, who received the order of Courage posthumously. For the rest, apparently, there were not enough orders.
    Eternal memory to all heroes who did not surrender to the enemy.
    PS The full list of participants in the uprising and those who died in the Badaber camp is stored in the safes of the Pakistan special services. However, it is still not possible to get acquainted with them. And we must know the names of ALL HEROES. The Lord will not forgive us silence.

      At the expense of captivity ... I've personally read that Dushmans attacked checkpoints in order to capture prisoners of war in order to obtain ransom for them or exchange them (while, by the way, they suggested exchanging one Soviet soldier for dozens of spirits). Soviet soldiers who deserted (mainly those who were draftees from Central Asia or young, tired of bullying) almost immediately took up arms, while accepting Islam with all the honors. They did not need to be kept in the basement and beaten. And all the dead Muslims just did not accept. Indeed, Rustamov himself, an eyewitness to those events who now lives in Uzbekistan, said that the spirits kept Muslims and Orthodox separately.

      I watched the film, to say that all the soldiers voluntarily surrendered, my tongue does not turn. Well, the fact that someone, and somehow got captured, whether captured in battle or in a do-it-yourself, is not for us to judge them. The Bible says do not judge, and you will not be judged. (Checked by himself) Sometimes we do stupid things, but unfortunately we learn from our mistakes, and not from strangers, it is so customary. The fact that they accomplished a feat, this fact is undeniable, and confirms the truth, that the Russians harnessed for a long time, but quickly chased. In the film, everything else is well told about the roots of modern terrorism, that it was the Americans who taught the peasants the military craft, thereby creating the DRA from peaceful semi-literate citizens, a fiend of hell that walks the world, encouraged by its "parents." All these scribbles, and witness stories about betrayal, requests for political asylum, should not be regarded as 100% true, many factors affect the storyteller, who knows how any of us will behave in such a situation. Eternal memory to these guys who showed the Russian spirit to both Afghans and Pak from the USA.

        I’ll answer to everyone who claims that the guys chose death? Is there such a statement according to eyewitness accounts? Rather, they really wanted to live. They expected that, being in the ammunition depot, they were insured against the use of weapons more powerful than small arms. Did they begin to destroy spirits from the very beginning? as said, they shot into the air. And as I understand it, during the whole riot there was no task to kill as many opponents as possible, and, as the heroes would say, give up your life more expensive. I agree they died, but I can’t call their death heroism. Let me be judged. But in memory of those heroes who really accomplished feats, I cannot equalize both of them. Yes, I’m a maximalist, I always believed that to surrender, this is a betrayal, a real man, a warrior, can not take such a step. What would happen if there was no sexual abuse of one of the captives. And nothing, they would also continue to work, drag out their existence. I agree only that one or two of them, those who organized this uprising, can be men, warriors, and heroes.

          What other discussion are you waiting for? You have been objected many times here. And reasonably. and they watched your film and still do not agree with you, but remained with their opinion that these guys are heroes. So what are you waiting for? To agree with you? No one agrees with you. And boasting of maximalism in old age is simply a shame. Maximalism is inherent in young, not wise, life experiences. Life is not only divided into white and black, it is much more multifaceted, more complex and more colorful.

      There are statistics that for the entire time of the war in Afghanistan, only 4 soldiers raised their hands up voluntarily, the rest were captured either seriously wounded or kidnapped.

      I saw a reporter investigation into this episode. So almost all the "heroes" were captured or out of stupidity, and there were those who gave up themselves hoping to get to the West in this way.

      Another reporting vyser? And who interestingly provided the information to these "reporters"? And for what purpose was this investigation organized?
      Think about it first.
      The fact that people took up arms, initially understanding the hopelessness of the situation, makes them heroes. Believe me, not everyone is capable of this! Including you, otherwise there would be no such comments from you.

      I watched a movie and what did I see? According to the results of the investigation, it turns out that basically the guys left the units themselves for various, usually objective reasons, but they died as it should be for soldiers with weapons in their hands, and I think that they washed away their blood for any shame. Maybe they are not heroes, maybe they didn’t fill up 2 hundred spirits, but they did something worthy of respect, by the way at the end of the film this is said.

    The film is called "The Peshawar Waltz" of 1994. But I don’t really like it. Something is messy or something. Even in the first part of the two-part action movie "The Afghan", the part is also inspired by this uprising along the way ... I think it’s better to read or the documentary a good movie to watch, than a bad art. Life is worse. About the flight of our pilots on the IL-76. I’m probably still the doc. the film is more interesting. "(BM-13) -in the article ?!

    When I first learned about these events in one show, I was very impressed with this. The feat of these guys is akin to those that were in the Great Patriotic War. They are all REAL HEROES and REAL MAN! It is good of course that they did such a transfer, otherwise I probably would not have known anything to this day. And I'm just sorry that little is known about such guys.
    You can’t forget about this. And now we are going to supply military aircraft to this Pakistan. Type of business is business. Baksyatina had already completely covered her eyes and there was no conscience left. They will sell everything for a broken cent and forget everything. Cheap stuff! Nasty from all this.

    There is another story that was not disclosed in the media, but told to me by a fighter about one GRU special forces officer, who is currently active and if I’m not mistaken, is the commander of one of the GRU special forces brigades, so this officer and one more (I don’t know anything about him) got into captured by the Chechens, put them in a zindan, from which they safely got out at night, cut out the entire gang and left, for this the officer received only the order of courage!

And no matter how much the current "universal people" who are seeking to build their children in Europe with America whispered, the heroes were made by their homeland, the USSR, and hence the Soviet government. "Russians don't give up!" And then no one bothered who was the “Russian” by nationality. He was a warrior, defender of his Great Motherland, performing an international duty.

    By the way, besides Peshawar Waltz, there is another film, albeit indirectly, related to the events described. The French film Star of the Soldier The main character is a Soviet soldier Nikolai Samin (one of those who died in Badaber), who was captured by dushmans, who accepted their side and agreed to the proposal of the French journalist to leave for France, but shot in Pakistan as a soldier of the enemy army. Film is cheap propaganda against the Soviet army (soldiers go in a herd of unshaven, dressed in WWII caps, drink vodka, rape women, shoot peaceful population, etc.) At the end of the film, allegedly a dialogue between Nikolai Samin and Shah Masood is shown ...

    They were captured in different ways: those who went unconscious from the battle, those who went down from the posts to the gates, who went to the dukan for sweets, who could not withstand the pressure from the old-timers and went wherever they could see, who went down to the greenery out of need, everything happened. Spirits were rarely taken prisoner, usually stabbed, stabbed, children were thrown to outposts. And in Badaber gathered "difficult" captive shuravi. And with their deed, feat, the guys crossed out all the circumstances of their captivity and became the VALUE of Afghanistan. And who came back alive: DIED WITH THE TIME OF THE Wounds

      Yes, Marat, as I wrote above, everything was. And I was with the soldiers, I lived next to them at outposts, at the outposts, and I was only a little older than the soldiers by 2-3 years. So I knew them from within. There wasn’t even a conversation about not wanting to shoot at “their own people”. They probably were not fixated on their Islam. And drug addicts, and raiders and others thought about one thing, about the demobilization and life after the army. And no matter how greyhounds, steep during lulls, during the battle, everyone carried out impeccably all orders and orders of the commanders. There was still subordination. And when they fled from the locations of the units, they did not think about anything bad, the guys were only 18-19. Boys at all. And these same boys smashed spirits so that the sky seemed like a sheepskin. After all, heroism is MIG, and the daily performance of their military duties is ETERNITY.

      And this is a photograph of the alleged leader of the uprising, Shevchenko N.I. She is taken from the movie about which she speaks above. vladsolo56 ("The Secret of Badaber Camp. Afghan Trap"). I watched this film earlier and there are generally many photos of participants in those events, but in this person I liked the way he behaved while being held captive. Very proud, regardless. It was very good. athletic and specially demonstrated his superiority to the Afghans. Once, in my brain, his alleged phrase, which he said before they decided on the uprising, sank into my brain: “Let's raise an uprising, it won’t go any further!” ( ) Therefore, I saved myself this photo, as a keepsake.
