The feat of peacekeepers in Tskhinval

67
On the night of August 8 2008, when the whole world watched the opening of the Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, Georgia decided by military means to regain South Ossetia, which had separated from it at the beginning of the 90 of the last century. The armed conflict began, which lasted 5 days and ended with the complete defeat of Georgia. After these events, Russia finally recognized the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, practically putting an end to the dreams of the Georgian leadership to return these republics to the country.


Then, on the night of August 8, the Russian peacekeeping battalion stationed in Tskhinvali was at the point of the main attack of the Georgian troops. It was Russian peacekeepers who were the first to take the brunt of the advancing Georgian troops. Shortly before midnight 7 August 2008, the Georgian Grad MLRS began shelling the capital of South Ossetia, Tskhinvali. The city housed the 2 base of Russian peacekeepers, one of which, located in the center, where the commander of the peacekeeping contingent, General Kulakhmetov, was stationed, suffered less. The second, located on the very outskirts of the city in the so-called “upper town in Shanghai”, just 500 meters from the Georgian border, was subjected to a much greater fire impact. There were about 200 Russian peacekeepers.

The base in Shanghai is a three-story building equipped with an observation post on the roof, which was called an “eye”, an observation tower, a concrete observation cup, a stoker, several BMP-1, exposed outside the base in 300 meters from it to the field along the border and several BMP-1 on the territory of the base, driven into specially dug caponier.

The feat of peacekeepers in Tskhinval

At about 2 in the night of August 8, the shelling of the city stopped, but at 5 in the morning the shelling resumed, fired from a rifle weapons. The first shots were made on the "eye", located on the roof of the peacekeeping base. At this time there were several Russian observers. At the same time the peacekeepers suffered the first losses. One person was killed, another was injured. At about the same time, the Georgians began a massive bombardment of a high iron observation tower at the base. However, the shelling did not cause any harm to ordinary Sergei Kononov, who was drafted into the army from Udmurtia. Sergey walked down the stairs to a concrete glass and took refuge there. Looking ahead, it is possible to note that in this concrete glass at noon he died and, fighting for 3 hours and reflecting the attacks of the enemy, he did not give up his battle post. He was posthumously presented to the Order of Courage.

Approximately 2 hours after the start of the morning shelling of small arms, that is, around 7 a.m., the Georgian military brought the positions of Russian peacekeepers 2 tank. One of them took refuge in a dilapidated building, which served as a shelter, and the second hid in a coppice. Near the tanks are snipers. With the first shots, the tanks destroyed the lonely standing and not firing BMP of the Russian peacekeepers. In the car, a mechanic-driver, Private Anton Marchenko, and gunner-operator Alexander Shmyganovsky were killed. After such a development of events, peacekeepers, who were located in their trenches at the lower observation position along the border, retreated to the base building. The surviving BMP peacekeepers, installing a smoke screen, also began to retreat to the base.

The order to open the return fire was received by the Russian peacekeepers closer to 8 in the morning. At this point, Georgian troops were already conducting offensive operations using infantry. At the same time, Georgian tanks shot the base territory from shelters. Almost all the equipment of peacekeepers was destroyed by enemy fire. Acquired in Ukraine MBT T-72, equipped with modern Israeli electronic filling, turned into real snipers. From the very first shots without adjustment, they hit the peacekeepers' equipment, even though some BMPs were deeply dug in the ground.


In one of the BMP killed the driver Kublan Himatov. And about 11 hours of the day in the BMP on the territory of the base killed gunner-operator Private Polushkin and mechanic-driver Alexander Yasko. For a relatively long time, only the BMP of the operator-gunner Radion Asanova was firing, but she, too, was eventually destroyed by fire from a tank. Fortunately, at that time, Radion Asanov had already left the car and continued the fight.

By the time the Georgian military reached the location of the peacekeeping campus in Shanghai, there were only about 220 servicemen there. Of the combat units there were only 4 platoon - 2 motorized rifle, 1 grenade launcher and 1 reconnaissance. The rest - providing staff. Of the regular 526 servicemen of the battalion of the order, 250 people were stationed at posts and outposts along the border. These 4 platoons held up defenses against the superior forces of the Georgian forces by force up to the battalion (about 500 people, supported by tanks and artillery).

The battalion of the Russian peacekeepers was confronted only by 1: the task at its turn of defense was to prevent the enemy from entering Tskhinvali. At the same time, the most powerful weapons that our peacekeepers possessed were the 73-mm Thunder cannon on the BMP-1, as well as hand grenade launchers and anti-tank guided missiles. According to the commander of the peacekeeping battalion, Lieutenant Colonel Konstantin Timerman, the Georgians could not enter the positions of peacekeepers with tanks, knowing that the Russians have an RPG. Georgian tanks mostly fired from a safe distance of 500-700 meters. Several times the Georgians tried to penetrate the base through the checkpoint, but the Georgian infantry was cut off from the tanks by small arms fire and the tanks were forced to retreat, because without the support of the infantry, tanks were just an excellent target for soldiers with RPGs.


The peacekeeping battalion managed to hold out for three days, being in a fairly dense encirclement. For 3 days, Russian peacekeepers, many of whom had never before taken part in hostilities, fought with an adversary who came to Tskhinvali. Russian peacekeepers have become a real stumbling block for the Georgian military, who, having a significant numerical advantage, have failed to capture the location of the peacekeepers. At the same time, the Georgian military, in violation of all international law, exposed the peacekeeping contingent to artillery and mortar shelling, shelling from tanks and small arms, and assault raids aviation.

The 4 tank, which 9 August managed to break through, was invaluable to the peacekeepers. One of them was almost immediately hit, another tank was damaged, and pressure was released from it. At the same time, the ammunition from it was transferred to another tank. One of the tanks that had broken through closed the entrance to the peacekeepers ’barracks, preventing the Georgians from getting on the back side and filling the only way out. At the same time, tanks, having spent ammunition, did not turn off the battle. One of them continued to frighten the Georgian infantry with one of its kind and aggressive movements.

The losses of the Russian peacekeeping battalion were 10 killed and 2 missing. Many of those who were in the town of peacekeepers were injured of varying degrees of severity. The commander of the battalion of peacekeepers, Lieutenant Colonel Konstantin Timerman was awarded the title Hero of Russia. During the battle, he was wounded, but did not leave the position, refusing hospitalization, and continued command of the battalion. It is reported that the lieutenant colonel personally destroyed 6 enemy units.

    it’s still not clear what the tie-eating was hoping for when attacking peaceful cities and Russian peacekeepers. in theory, for such numbers, at least under Russian law, put him on the international wanted list and judge him as a war criminal

        I thought that the democratizers would bomb the Roki tunnel, and there the world community would pull itself up and Russia would no longer dare to harness itself, and then "obscurantism and jazz" would begin in South Ossetia. A quote from Michael Saakashivi's speech: "so that Kaczynski could gather European leaders and fly in, so that Sarkozy could come, that President Bush returned and sent the US 6th Fleet to Georgia, brought the Incilik base (if I am not mistaken) in Turkey and the base to full readiness Constanta in Romania. It was a military operation from that side, and also a military-political response from that side. The international response contained serious military elements .. By the way, Cheney told me when I recently saw him in the USA again, and he confirmed to me that the US was seriously considering bombing the Roki tunnel. I am very sorry that this decision was not made. "

          After the bombing of the Roki Tunnel, nothing would have changed; they would have thrown the Airborne Forces from airplanes, and the Marines would land from the sea. The strategic goals in Georgia would have been bombed, not by tactical missiles, but by bombers.

            It would take more time at times, and there the score was for minutes - this time.
            Two: you cannot throw out the Airborne Forces and "unmount with bombers", as you said, in the conditions of an actively operating enemy air defense system and electronic warfare systems (and it was more than active, thanks to the Slavic brothers from Ukraine) - this is ABC! The landing party will be shot down on the way or thrown out in such an ass that they will not get there one day. It is also difficult with planes, considering that even with that distribution, three Su-25 attack aircraft and one Tu-22M3 bomber were shot down. Although, in principle, you can implement everything you have planned, if you are not afraid to drown in the blood of your own soldiers.
            To summarize, the conclusion follows: the Roki tunnel is a strategically extremely important transport artery, the loss of which could immensely complicate the task of the Russian Armed Forces and even radically change the situation. So everything is as simple as we would like.

            It was not the military component that was tested, or rather not only that. The main question was - will we answer, and how tough. One had only to chew a little snot and that’s all ... Maybe we would have already been attacked. But already when Russia showed determination and readiness to repel aggression, when both the peacekeepers and our soldiers simply showed clearly that it was not possible to break the Russian fighting spirit again ... With what pleasure I read and watched the panicky Western reaction! Along the way, they chewed ties there in chorus, for speed, it was just this dolboklyuy who went on the air ...

            Perhaps a lot would have changed. I don't know how much you can trust the information, but in one article with an interview with a representative of the Russian General Staff it was written that the Georgians really intended to destroy the Roki tunnel. With the outbreak of hostilities, the Georgian representative was summoned to the Kremlin, where he was unambiguously given to understand that if the Roki tunnel was destroyed, Georgia would be hit by all powerful non-nuclear weapons (first of all, the Iskander missiles). After that Misha got very scared, or the Yankees still kept him from these plans. I repeat once again - I don't know how much this information was 100%.

    With the first shots, the tanks destroyed the lonely-standing and not firing BMP of the Russian peacekeepers. In the car, the mechanic-driver Private Anton Marchenko and gunner-operator Alexander Shmyganovsky died.

    Anton Marchenko, my fellow countryman, died a little differently: "During the battle, Anton Marchenko removed the burning BMP from the position of the Russian peacekeepers, thereby saving his comrades from death. The private did not manage to leave the car engulfed in flames, which exploded from the detonation of fuel tanks and ammunition. President of the Russian Federation of October 1, 2008 No. 1428, he was awarded the title of Hero of Russia (posthumously). "

    I’ll also add that the “Golden Star” of the Hero from the mother was stolen, re-melted and turned into jewelry for 7 thousand rubles. The thief received 2 years in prison in a maximum security penal colony.

    At the same time, the Georgian military, violating all norms of international law, subjected the peacekeeping contingent to artillery and mortar shelling, shelling from tanks and small arms, and assault air raids.

    What is interesting is that after such events the traditional questions about "who will fight?" , "young people are not what they used to be," and so on. Look who survived in the hardest battles, did not run, did not get cold feet, but fought to the death. And so in all armed conflicts
    Russian martial traditions are passed down from generation to generation. We still have gunpowder in the powder flasks.

    The command could have foreseen everything in advance (otherwise why would the GRU), because the Georgians were driving the equipment through Russian checkpoints. This is our eternal "one must avoid provocation", do not engage in battle. It cost to mine the passage once. Well, they would have sunk in Tbilisi and Washington - there would have been no shelling of Tskhinval. But then there would be no independence ...

    I will express my opinion knowing that I will get cons. Did our intelligence know that there would be an attack, I think I knew, but I needed an occasion like 11.09.2001/40/1. It was just Sahaki’s wiring and he was seduced and received. Civilians began to withdraw in a month, and this with increasing shelling. The fact that before the war the Georgian officers had run in the area as peacekeepers does not cause any doubts, but ours, too, in particular the Vostok battalion. And the simplest example of deploying XNUMX army units so quickly is simply not realistic, and the Roki tunnel was busy XNUMX hour after the shelling began. Yes, they knew what the war would be, but definitely when not. I don’t remember who wrote here on the site a year ago, that it was a war for our access to the Caucasus by land and in the attack on Armenia we present a soft ultimatum to Georgia on the passage of troops. That is why let the earth rest in peace for them so little loss from the peacekeepers with the total superiority of the Georgians.

    Very sorry for the guys. Eternal memory to them! And you need to ask questions: - from more than 500 people are current 4 platoon combat, and who are the rest? Although already guessed at other peacekeeping missions. “And who gave such a belated order to return fire?” And according to the regulations on the CPKF in the CIS and the norms of international law, it was possible to wet rodents even at night!

    On August 9, 2008, the battalion tactical group, which included the tank company of the 141st separate tank battalion, was attacked by superior enemy forces when advancing to assault Tskhinval. In the course of repelling the attack, Sergeant Mylnikov destroyed three armored objects. Then, fighting in the city, the tank crew under the command of Mylnikov destroyed two tanks and three light armored vehicles, thereby ensuring the fulfillment of the mission of the supported motorized rifle company. After the entire ammunition was consumed, Sergeant Mylnikov removed the tank from under fire, ensuring the survivability of the equipment and the life of the crew.

    By decree of the President of the Russian Federation of September 19, 2008, Sergeant Sergey Andreevich Mylnikov was awarded the title Hero of the Russian Federation with the award of the Golden Star medal. Together with him, for this battle of high rank, the commander of the battalion tactical group was captain Yuri Pavlovich Yakovlev.

    Russians are the best fighters in the world. If all the Svanidza, Nemtsov and dog dogs had emigrated or sat down for a long time and did not mess up the media, it would be even better.

    Konstantin Timerman, lieutenant colonel, hero of Russia: "The army rests on such soldiers"

    - I had the honor to serve and fight along with Private Kononov. Those like him are the steel soldiers ridge of our army. Do not break it. At his small post, this peacekeeper accomplished a great feat - he fought to the end and did not leave the position while he could hold weapons in his hands. Only the Russian Soldier could fight like that.

    In Russia, the people tend to adjust everyone to their own norms, to their thinking, it is not for nothing that they say in Russia that everyone measures others to the extent of their depravity. The pro-Kremlin, sub-Putintsi and Nashists only do what they prove this truth, from them you can only hear that everyone around "caved in" "bent down" "lay down under America" ​​"they bought you, now work out", so if you yourself still stand on knees, then where did you get the idea that others still live like this ......... Why are we, if not with you, then necessarily traitors, and in general, whom did we betray, Russia or something ... ....... you can not betray the occupying country, this is nonsense. and utter idiocy. You did not come to Georgia in peace, just like in 2008, just like in 1921, you came with a war. Russia is not a point of concentration of good and light, Russia has always lived and will live in darkness, while in Russia they don’t begin to respect others and forget that they are only in words mighty and strong, they will treat you with suspicion and like a monkey with a grenade. Anyway, open your eyes to reality, because if you look at your truth about the same war in 2008, then if it was as you describe it, then why did no one support you ....... ANYONE ... Even dad made friends with Misha, he even sent a commission here for the sake of appearance, but what in the end ... And then you poured mud on the wise dad on your TV. Neither Armenia, nor Belarus, nor anyone, everyone was smart enough not to go on about the gebisk gang and their henchmen. Or the same twisting of the words from Tagliavini's report in their favor.
    Not a single Georgian soldier crossed the legal border of Georgia and Russia, and not a single house on the territory of Russia was destroyed and not a single Russian citizen on the territory of Russia was killed by the Georgian military. We acted within our legal borders, recognized not only in the world, but also by your beloved Putin back in 2006. So what kind of aggression can we talk about, you yourself sent your soldiers to Georgia, made them aggressors, and then how the latter angrily wondered that they were killed, there is time to think about the mental state of your worldview, well this is a laugh, it's a kindergarten, to fine-tune everything ourselves, and then to make the guilty of Georgians, but in the end it did not work out, in the end everything turned out clumsy and stupid. This is recognized not only in the world, but also by your allies, who are rumored, who are silent. Your strength was only enough for a country like Georgia, and then, no one even resisted almost as soon as the main blows were delivered, the army retreated and dispersed, and your hurricanes, hailstones and points ironed Tskhinvali for another two days. And if you rely on the words of Leonid Ivashov (I do not always agree with him, but I respect him) it was reconnaissance in battle, and what is reconnaissance in battle ...... I think everyone knows. Yes, I know, you would really like our army to resist so that it would be possible to kill as many Georgians as possible. But it all ended as it ended and say thank you that everything ended just like that. If the Russian Federation had real power, it wouldn’t whine and cackle on TV and forums about Libya or Syria, but really, they did something, and so ....... No one takes you seriously, and here you are get angry and break down in such a small and weak country like Georgia, and then your TV and the media present it as a great victory, and whoever does not do this and tries to figure out how things really were, then everything, an enemy of the people and a foreign spy, an accomplice of the State Department, a henchman of the Yids, and stuff like that. Looks like your favorite time is the thirties of the last century, well, your power certainly misses the times of Beria and denunciations.
    I know that I’m exaggerating the facts, but the schoolchildren will not understand this and still throw a tantrum)))))))))

      Military units on the territory of Abkhazia and South Ossetia have been deployed since the early 90s, since the first Georgian-Abkhaz war, as peacekeepers. "The same" (in name, but not in essence) are located in Afghanistan, Iraq, Serbia. The presence of Russian peacekeepers contributed to a quick end to the aggression, which they did not allow to stir up for 15 years. On the contrary, the presence of "Western peacekeepers" in the aforementioned countries does nothing but incessant hostilities.
      Concerning 888, it was indicated that they unleashed it rather vilely: starting to bomb the sleeping city from the MLRS at night, while trying to destroy the entire infrastructure and hit as many people as possible, including the Russians. Immediately a rhetorical question: suppose Serbia launched rocket attacks on the US military base in Pristina, US actions? The same actions were applied by Russia in relation to Georgia. At the same time, only one Russian army fought against Georgia; 4 ships of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation eliminated all the enemy’s Navy in less than a day. And the main role here was played by the morale of the peacekeepers and courage in deciding the GDP. But a huge minus surfaced here - the low technical equipment of the Russian troops.
      The information war that erupted immediately after the outbreak of the conflict also showed that in this, very important in the era of globalization, Russia has no offensive strategies.
      The situation is different for the current year 2013: the latest models of weapons of our own production appear in the RF Armed Forces, the economy shows growth during the crisis, the domestic channel Russia Today has become a leader in popularity in the West, the homeland defends its geopolitical interests more confidently; The West, in many respects, now acts as a defender or catching up, which is only three petitions per week. This, in fact, is the only thing you can say thank you to your president for.

        The most striking thing is that almost all the comments in RuNet on the topic of the war between Russia and Georgia come down to three components.
        Firstly, it is a steady and unshakable faith in the version of the authorities of the Russian Federation and central TV about the war. There is even no point in arguing with this because people are ready to believe in it, not even because the leader said so, but because to admit the opposite is akin to defeat for you and it doesn’t matter if it is true or false. After all, wherever you look, no one even has a shadow of doubt that Putin and his government can lie on the topic of the war with Georgia.
        Secondly, this is a relentless comparison of the behavior of Russia and the United States, wherever you look, phrases like -All America behaves everywhere, and Russia behaves like this- (Of course in different variations, but the meaning is about the same for everyone) as if you are not different countries with different and individual policies and behaviors, and cat lovers look at each other and stupidly and hysterically compete among themselves ............ in shortsightedness and cruelty, and your trophies are countries, peoples, people.
        And thirdly, of course, this is your favorite story, where would you be without it though, few people understand that people write history, and usually close to the authorities (this was especially true in the past) and blind faith in people ........ ( then everyone decides for himself what is history for him, personally for me it is akin to myths, rumors, gossip)
        The truth is there is also an unwillingness to raise the topic of why no one supported Russia in this war, but this is a sore point for you and everyone is trying to avoid it and not even notice, and who pays attention then it usually comes down to a muffled grumble like -We no one is unnecessary, the main thing is that we are right, and all the rest went to three letters-

            We did not attack the Russian military in your territory, do not write nonsense smile Well, or at least take a look that there is a definition for the word Aggression.
            As for support, I did not write about any left-wing polls and opinions of certain citizens, I actually wrote about the off version of the authorities of the same Belarus or the same CSTO members (Armenia does not even hide that it recognizes the integrity of Georgia) And I think what version it was I know everything, the Old Man even managed to say that Russia wanted to buy it for recognition of Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali region, and then the same NTV treated it. It is a pity that you did not understand lol
            And then people still wonder why it’s a contract (any, even for a loan for some kind of cheap camera) is painted on several pages, they say so reluctance to read and delve into them lol

      It may seem very bloodthirsty, but when the Georgians were cut out almost all were asked to save Russia, they swore eternal allegiance. Then, behind the back of the Russian soldier, they multiplied and already the Russians became superfluous to them.

You know what is most striking, this is what hypocrisy Russians treat Caucasians and including Georgians, then you call us brothers, they say we are kindred by faith, let's be friends, then you hate us (you just have to read what people write on the stopham channel), you have been an invader of the entire Caucasus for hundreds of years, there’s no sense to count how many Russian soldiers killed Caucasians, only inappropriately pretend to be white and fluffy, it’s you reassuring yourself that you supposedly only do that to protect everyone and everything in this world, your favorite song is that they say - They kill women, children and the elderly and we are such brave heroes with a cross on their chest and with a god in their souls, we will kill them in response, all to one- Or do you really sincerely believe that all those whom you killed were evil terrorists and bandits?
        PS You don’t want to understand one thing, we didn’t come to you, and you, and, I repeat, didn’t come with peace, light and prosperity, but with weapons, war and hatred, it’s stupid to be offended, trying after all that you have done to find the guilty; you are looking for him in everyone and in everyone, forgetting about one thing, to look in the mirror.

Hordes, Arabs, Persians, they all moved through the Caucasus to the North. All the actions of the Russian Empire in your region pursued, only one the task is to close the Caucasus from southern expansion, so that the fertile Black Sea coast develops quietly. Everything else is a consequence of the vicissitudes of war and the customs of those years. So --- Argonauts.

And not evil I decided that, but the cold analyst from the Russian General Staff applied the military scientific method of preventing and reducing risks for RF soldier So, while your first persons will be driving around Bush Avenue, they will study English instead of Russian in schools and the next generation will not know about the film "Soldier's Father" (one of my favorites), and if you show it, they will not understand what the film is about ( you demolished the monument, now memory is being destroyed) This is my vision, I can be mistaken in something, we are all human hi )

            As for NATO, well, to begin with, no one believed in it from the very beginning, everyone said that it is better to have a simple security and military assistance agreement with the United States, it is much more effective. Secondly, there will never be any war between NATO and Russia, so all this is a simple window dress, men and then our armored train, dragging syuds, we’ll play pranks on the hadh. And if these analysts of yours in the General Staff (-18) are so smart, then they should have understood that Georgia is not the Baltic states, and no one will accept us in NATO, as well as India. So this is at least an empty spray of forces on non-existent and ghostly goals (although your MO is a master in this matter)))) And your risks come from the inside and not from the outside.
            About the language, this is of course strange, because we have here not only the study of Russian but also Russian-language schools (although by itself that they are becoming less and less), but here it is the fault of Russia. And I know everything about the film here, do not get ahead of it, since this is our story, Georgia in percentage terms lost the most in the Second World War. As for the monument, some were demolished, others were built (although you usually have stories about how to demolish it) in any case it’s just stones, more important people and memory, besides, I think you know how many temples, churches and monasteries were destroyed in Russia with the coming to power of the Red-bellied, and what, who doesn’t warp anyone of you. In any case, each nation is free to choose what is important for it in its past, in its history, and the imposition of idols leads to what is usually called war, and since people are very greedy for war, they are happy to go to kill and die, although the most remarkable thing is that they are afraid to admit it, they lie and hypocrites hiding behind something like -I ordered me, I went, or -It was my duty- and stuff like that, but as you know, everyone has a choice and everyone he is responsible for his conscience and for his soul.

The military operations have not been canceled yet (they are even regularly used), and your cooperation with the NATO bloc disrupts the balance of forces in the Caucasus region, so don’t expect, genatsvale, preventive convoys of the Ministry of Emergencies of the Russian Federation with soft toys. The answer will always be tough, and the missions will be exhaustive, because the gate of the Caucasus is not a passage through the yard, but a sphere of Russian interests, if you completely drop politeness (and if there is something to the small subjects do not like it, let's negotiate, we are always open to cooperation).

                    Well, you can start with the fact that Georgia was a republic within the USSR, and Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali region were nothing more than autonomies within the Georgian SSR. Plus, there is your example of how you tried to return and almost returned your autonomy to your own jurisdiction. so .......... And the nation’s right to self-determination is too vague a concept, they can be twisted and twisted as they like in their favor, and in any case, if this statement is so prosaic, why don’t you recognize Transnistria or Karabakh. Although there is one hunch here, this is not a desire to completely break off relations with Moldova and Azerbaijan, as was done with Georgia, who knows, it may also turn out to bring them back under its control.

                  And what kind of land does Georgia claim? Georgia wants to return what belongs to it rightfully after the collapse of the USSR

                  Quote: System32
                  ... You are now talking like a man in the street, from the standpoint of "by concepts" and they say "by conscience" and this only works you know where.
                  In fact, I don’t know where it works. It's true, I don’t know who you represent me for. But I certainly declare to you that you yourself wrote it, that the USSR collapsed. And if so, then realize who is the legal successor and the defendant, payer of the debts of the USSR and the guarantor of world security in the person of a country with a nuclear arsenal? Russia, our great power. And if so, then the interests in the spheres of influence and state security of Russia extend to the entire post-Soviet space. fellow It hurts the ear, not diplomatically, not democratically (after all, all the former Soviet republics are sovereign states), but I am telling you in real political language. The post-empire period is the "disease" of all empires. I do not give this assessment, but accept it as a scientific and a real working fact, and not the slime pouring from the TV .... the choice is yours. Everything is simpler again: the war of the eighth year and the recognition of Abh. and Yu.Oset .-------- a predictable and rational response to Kosovo. Yes, yes, the representatives of the Western world === the bomb went off, but after so many years, but in the wrong place, HOWEVER, if you follow the statements of the Russian Foreign Ministry , it will become clear that Russia warned about this before Kosovo, during the Yugoslav aggression and later. The world powers could not agree peacefully, the war of 08 began, Georgia became a bargaining chip. Lopatov.

    "The peacekeeping battalion managed to hold out for three days, being in a fairly tight circle of encirclement. For three days, the Russian peacekeepers, many of whom had never participated in hostilities before, fought with the enemy that had reached Tskhinvali."

    Wow, why is it that they suddenly began to take "nerds" into peacekeepers, the author is talking nonsense.

    Dear Gladiatir-Zlo! The article also says that out of more than 500 peacekeepers, only 4 are military platoons. ??????. The rest, presumably, were translators from Chinese to Georgian and from GEL to dollars. am

      and then it’s clear that they forgot that military service, not a bazaar, may many trample into the warmer climes for a long dollar. So it turns out that out of the entire contingent of peacekeepers, only about a third are really capable of resolving issues, the rest are for the closest? Was Schaub at the shows more impressive?
