      Of course they don’t appear, yeah. Dmitry Makovkin is not a hero? Is Mikhail Malinnikov not a hero? And Sergey Solnechnikov is also not a hero?
      Just because you don’t hear anything about them does not mean that we don’t have them. I believe that the time of heroes, real heroes, in Russia has not ended, and will not end while it, Russia, is.

        It is necessary that the media talk more about such people, and not about who slept with whom, who "built up" something for themselves, or who gave someone in the face. And then some kind of intra-family idiocy "Suck" on the main channels parading the whole country, disgusting.

    Now the heroes of the SERDYUKOV-TOLOKONNIKOV-ALEKHIN-their faces are constantly flashing — there are no actions in the KREMLIN for the heroization of real workers of labor and war. am

    This is really a reassessment of values ​​- the heroes-cosmonauts are now known worse than the "yellow stars" of the modern "stage" ...
    A man is sorry - ETERNAL MEMORY to him!

    Always respectful to WONDERFUL people, HEROES. And even if a person has lived on the earth quite a bit, it’s still very sorry when a good person passes away.
    The kingdom of heaven, Valery Nikolaevich, and eternal memory.

    How I want our children, like we once, to start dreaming! Massively! Be astronauts, geologists, researchers, etc. !!!
    I know that life often dictates future choices, but as one experienced person said, “We must live in such a way that when, except for kefir for the night and a heating pad for the backside, nothing is needed - there was something to remember !!! (or how Peshkov- Bitter ... "so that it would not be excruciatingly painful for the years spent aimlessly")
    Rest in peace!
