Military Review

Unforgettable shot

This photo often appears on the open spaces of the world wide web. Always no comment. And always causes inexpressible emotions. Once you see this picture, you will never forget. We decided to find out who this heroic veteran is, smiling, no matter what ...

His name is Anatoly Leopoldovich Golimbievsky. It is he, the mechanic of the savvy destroyer, the only survivor of the whole group, the first to accept the battle in Tsemessky bay near Novorossiysk.

Sailor Anatoly Golimbievsky was in the first part of the landing of the marines, landed on the Little Land. He was found on the battlefield with no signs of life, with injuries to his legs and arms. In the Tbilisi hospital the brave sailor was rescued, but they could not save his legs. But this sailor radiated such vitality that he managed to win and marry the head nurse, Georgian Mirtsa. Daughter Tamara gave birth to a grandson, waited for Anatoly Leopoldovich and great-grandson ...

It is worth admitting that the details of his courageous act, perhaps, remained only in the memoirs of the former commander of the "Smart", Rear Admiral S. S. Vorkov. Better witness these events can not tell.

... Myskhako. Long-suffering Small land. Near Novorossiysk, Anatoly Golimbievsky was admitted to the party. With a machine gun hot from the hot shooting, in a tattered vest, he violently rushed forward. Only forward. At the enemy ... I stumbled on the machine gun fire. Jumped up and fell again. With annoyance, he felt his knee, sticky with blood. Clenching his teeth, crawled forward, where the others ran.

Soon Golimbievsky snuck up to the enemy bunker, occupied by thirteen wounded paratroopers, and held defense together with them for two days.

Unforgettable shot

On the third day, wounded and in the other leg, one crawled to the machine-gun nest. Aptly threw "lemon". The enemy bullet landed in the right hand. He returned to his comrades. Only four remained alive. Only on the seventh day of the intolerable rumble, thirst, hunger, he was picked up for a motorbike.

In Gelendzhik hospital after the examination, the surgeon said:
- Gas gangrene. Only amputation of the legs ... Do you agree?
- I want to live! - answered Golimbievsky.

... Anatoly Golimbievsky lived up to 80 years, infecting everyone around with his love of life. His "golden hands" found application at the Institute of Metrology, where he worked all his life as a leading engineer and manufactured thousands of mechanisms, devices and devices. I traveled around the city and to the dacha myself in a car, which I remade into manual control.

“I'm proud,” he said, “that comes from a seafaring tribe.” I believe in the irresistible strength, power and progress of our Navy fleet... I believe in the steadfastness of our flag - the flag of a sea power, a marine guard ...

PS This picture, in which the cadets of the Nakhimov school, led by an officer, salute the veteran Golimbievsky, was taken in 1989, on the embankment in Leningrad by photographer Ivan Kurtov. First, this picture was published by Smena, the most progressive newspaper at that time.
Dear veterans, with the upcoming Victory Day!

    The junta in Kiev must be destroyed! Banned to celebrate Victory Day in Kiev, and celebrate the creation of "Galicia" in western Ukraine. Obscurantists and misanthropists. And behind them is the country with the Statue of Liberty in Manhattan. How one must hate the Russians in order to feed and love the neo-fascists. But there is a terrible judgment! He is waiting. And you can't get away from him.

    Donbass needs to help everyone, most importantly volunteers and weapons. Ukrainian aircraft and armored vehicles should cease to exist. Not for this we let her out. Still the Georgian military are going to head to this area. The Ukrainian military fought on the side of Saakashvili, remember?

      In the sky clouds are running,
      Rainy dusk is compressed
      under the old cart
      workers are lying.
      And the proud whisper hears
      water both above and below:
      "In four years
      there will be a garden city! "
      Dark leaden,
      and the rain is thick as a tourniquet
      workers are sitting in the mud
      they sit, they plait a splinter.
      Slim lips from the cold,
      but lips whisper in harmony:
      "In four years
      there will be a garden city! "
      Bringing dampness upset -
      unimportant wet coziness
      the workers are sitting in the dark
      drenched bread is chewed.
      But whispers are louder than hunger -
      he drops drops falling:
      "In four years
      there will be a garden city!
      Here the explosions cry
      To disperse the bear gangs
      And mine will subsoil mine
      coangular "Giant".
      Here the construction sites will stand up.
      Beeps, steam, sipy.
      We are a hundred suns martin
      Flammable Siberia.
      Here they will give us a good house
      and sieve without soldering,
      Already cast off Baikal
      The taiga will move back. "
      The whisper of the worker grew
      Above the darkness of fat herds
      and then inaudible,
      only audibly - "garden city".
      I know the city will be
      I know the garden is blooming
      when such people
      in the country in the Soviet Union is!

        And that there were few of them in Afghanistan, and Chechnya, and South Ossetia, and now? How long has an officer with a solar name saved a soldier in an exercise by covering a grenade with his body. In Russia, such people have always been and will be, real heroes do not immediately strike the eye, but do their job silently ...

      I agree, it’s just horror in fact, grandfathers and grandmothers fought, were happy with victory with tears, and here, even without war, the ss-ts march along their streets, if they were ss-ts, not so upset, but these are children of these children veterans
