Senior Sergeant of the Red Army Magomed Muslim Ogly Magomayev


By order No. 43 / n of 20 in March 1945, for the troops of the 9 Infantry Corps, Senior Sergeant Magomed Magomayev was awarded the Order of the Great Patriotic War of the 2 degree.

In the afternoon of April 21, the 301 Infantry Division broke through the enemy defenses in its direction and broke into Berlin. 22 April 1945, part of the division, together with other parts of the Red Army, begin to force the river Spree and storm the Berlin suburb of Karlshorst, which is part of the strong points of Berlin’s internal defensive line.

From the letter of the commander of the 823 division of the artillery regiment Major Sotnikov to the relatives of the senior sergeant Magomayev:

... In heavy and difficult battles Magomed reached us, stepped over Spree, and then in a fierce and unequal fight in repelling tank attacks, literally ten meters away from me, was seriously wounded. It happened on the banks of the Spree in the suburb of Karlshorst, seven hundred meters south of the power station and the boat station on the highway.

In order to drag a comrade wounded into both legs through a smooth and machine-gunned road, a person of a large, noble heart was needed. Moreover, the wounded man was threatened with death at the stake of firewood set on fire by shells. And, despising the danger, Magomed reached the friend, put it on himself, brought him to the road, got into hand-to-hand fighting, killed two and wounded one German, raised his comrade again and ran with him across the road. The line from the machine gun finished off the wounded man, interrupted both legs of Magomed, in addition, five bullets pierced the stomach and lungs. Only seven wounds. He felt very unimportant, but he behaved well, joked, laughed ...

Before the fatal wound, the senior sergeant Magomayev managed to track the location of his firing point of the machine gun firing at him from his machine gun, thereby contributing to its destruction. In addition, in the same battle, on his target designation with the fire of the 1 division, four more firing points were destroyed. By order No. 68 / n of 22 in May 1945 of the year on the 68 rifle corps, senior sergeant Magomed Magomayev was posthumously awarded the Order of the Great Patriotic War of the 1 degree.

Combat comrades took both fallen Red Army men outside 85-km and buried them on the other side of the Oder in the small Polish village of Krzyvin Grifinski near the railway station. In 1952, all the graves located in this place were exhumed, Soviet soldiers and officers were reburied in mass graves at the cemetery in the Polish city of Hojna, bordering on Germany. There lie the 3985 of Soviet soldiers among them - the senior sergeant of the Red Army front intelligence officer Magomed Magomayev.

EVERLASTING MEMORY!

    You can only be proud of our ancestors.
    By the way, they said that when Muslim came to Grozny with concerts he mentioned this city as the homeland of his father. It was so.

    It would be necessary to print this article in the form of leaflets and scatter it over some regions of the Caucasus - maybe someone has something and stirs in the soul.
