There was a check of one of the addresses in Nazran. Sergeant Vorobev was supposed to penetrate the territory of the household and ensure the passage of the assault group. Once in the courtyard of the house, Vyacheslav saw the militants preparing for battle. Sparrow made the decision to open fire, thereby causing the gangsters to return fire.

For nearly forty minutes, Vyacheslav was left alone with six gangsters, who did not allow special forces to rush inside with hurricane fire. The armored personnel carrier, which was supposed to cover the actions of the fighters, broke down the gate, entered the courtyard of the household, but was shot down. He rolled back and the path to the approach was cut off. At this point, Sparrow contacted and began to adjust the fire, reporting on all movements of the militants.

In his locker and now there is a uniform in which Glory is removed from under the rubble. In it - the traces of bullets. Doctors counted on the body of Glory 16 bullet wounds.
