Our special forces

72
Our special forcesLast Saturday, October 24, without much external noise, celebrated the Day of Special Purpose Units. It was established relatively recently - 31 May 2006, by presidential decree.


It was assumed that this day would be a holiday for all special units - the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Federal Security Service, the Federal Penitentiary Service, the tax police, and possibly the bailiffs. Today, almost every “pumping station” has its own special forces, as the colonel of the General Staff reserve put it. And once the special forces were one, and it belonged to the GRU GSh.

So, despite the general name of the holiday date and the abundance of special forces of various security agencies, October 24 is truly marked only by special forces of the Main Intelligence Directorate - regardless of their formal subordination in the slightly confusing hierarchy of the modern Ministry of Defense.

It is worth recalling, whence came the specific date: October 24 of 1950, the secret directive of the USSR War Minister, Marshal of the Soviet Union A.V. appeared. Vasilevsky number ORG / 2 / 395 / 832. In the structure of the Armed Forces of the Soviet Union, 46 separate special-purpose companies appeared, each consisting of 120 people. The position of the company commander was determined major.

These units immediately coded more than strategic missile units. Those - even participated in the parades. And very few people knew about the existence of special forces even in the Ministry of Defense and in the General Staff itself.
Afghanistan was the high point of special intelligence. Veterans remember him today with some kind of indescribable warmth. History back does not return. But, according to very worthy military analysts, the GRU special forces, if he were immediately given complete freedom of action in this country, would reduce the bloodshed to a minimum. Many are sure: special forces were able to take control of virtually the entire territory of the country and make most of their gangs as their allies: they themselves would have finished off those who wanted to remain under the Americans. This did not happen. The Soviet limited contingent was ordered to fight, and the pilots bombed, bombed and bombed.

Our army lost thousands and thousands of young lives in the war “behind the river”. And one special forces 15 brigade lost there soldiers and officers killed by 140 killed - too many. But at the same time, more than nine thousand dushmans, as well as foreign mercenaries and advisers, were destroyed and captured. Dozens of tons of weapons and ammunition were seized.

What is most surprising: the wonders of heroism, and most importantly, the highest level of military professionalism, were shown by very young senior lieutenants, recent graduates of the intelligence department of the Kiev All-Arms Military School and the 9 of the Ryazan Airborne Company.

On the combat past, special forces can talk endlessly. However, when the war was going on in Afghanistan, the Soviet people did not know anything about their true heroes. And then there was “perestroika”, a bloody parade of sovereignties, and other rubbish. It was then that the special forces and opened. Who and for what purpose - now it is impossible to say for sure. But the first and very bright injection into the public consciousness was the image of a merciless special forces soldier with a bloody sapper blade in his hands, which he supposedly chopped off with pleasure to “foremen of perestroika” and “heralds of publicity”.

And they didn’t tear down anybody’s crazy bows from their shoulders. Although today it is clear to what blood and to what human tragedies the orgy of permissiveness led, covered with loud speeches about the great goals of perestroika. But the special forces were people of honor and the strictest discipline. The order to shoot "foremen" and "heralds" did not arrive, but the special forces could not and did not want to lodge it.

But it was precisely the GRU special forces who stopped the civil war in Tajikistan. The very same 15-I brigade, which was then commanded by Colonel Vladimir Kvachkov. It was this autumn 1992 of the year. When the Soviet Army was divided, the brigade went to Uzbekistan. But since “separatism” has not yet been settled, a kind of dual power has taken shape. That allowed the special forces to work as soon as they knew how, without regard for the high command authorities in Moscow and Tashkent.

Tajikistan really became the bloodiest ulcer on the territory of the newly emerged CIS. And the common border with Afghanistan only aggravated the situation, making it simply catastrophic and hopeless. There was a real massacre in the country. Tajiks brutally murdered the Tajiks, entire villages of Uzbeks were massacred, Russians were killed with terrible executions.

So, one 15-Special Forces brigade, without losing a single person, very quickly stopped the killing of Russians and other "non-Tajik", provided the evacuation from the country to everyone who wanted.
And then, by the forces of healthy forces in Tajik society, which the Russian intelligence officers quickly found and organized, stopped the internecine fratricidal war. Since 1994, Tajikistan lives in the world.

Do you think the GRU special forces and specifically 15-th brigade someone thanked? In general, she was disbanded; some of the officers were even criminally prosecuted in Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. And her former commander is now a simple Russian convict.

The GRU commandos have never been untouchable, on the contrary, very vulnerable. They were always hunted by the enemies of Russia, and the special services of the state to which they served and serve faithfully never let them go. Maybe because those special services came to people who have developed an association from their youth: a special forces officer is a monster with the very bloodied deminer in his hands ...

Chechnya is another bright page in the history of special forces. There, on their territory, they had to be thousands of times more complicated than abroad, in Afghanistan and Tajikistan. Why? We will not go into the details and stir up the recent past ...

By the beginning of the second stage of the so-called antiterrorist operation in the North Caucasus, it became clear that the GRU special forces were playing the key role. And only after 2000, freedom of action appeared. The result is known to all. Active hostilities in the North Caucasus very quickly ceased.

To somehow celebrate the role of special-purpose intelligence officers, their holiday was introduced for the first time in 2000. True, at the departmental level. Secretary of Defense Marshal Igor Sergeyev 26 July 2000 of the year issued an order according to which October 24 should be marked as “The Day of the Special Forces of the Armed Forces”. In 2006, a presidential decree appeared, which was mentioned above.

So, October 24 2000 celebrated the Special Forces 50 anniversary. The festive meeting and concert were held in the Cultural Center of the Russian Army on Suvorov Square. Veterans of special forces came from almost all of the former USSR. They were congratulated by Defense Minister Igor Sergeyev, Chief of the General Staff Anatoly Kvashnin, Head of the GRU Valentin Korabelnikov. And the congratulations were not of a protocol nature, they were humanly warm and sincere. Moreover, after the end of the official part, both the Minister of Defense, and the National Security Service, and even the head of the GRU were very accessible and quite friendly in communication. This has never happened and, alas, most likely, there will be no more. It is even more improbable that at the entrance to the building where the special forces ’jubilee was celebrated, there were no metal detectors or X-ray machines, no one was searched. But there were no strangers there either.

In 2005, the Special Forces 55 anniversary was celebrated at the Central Theater of the Russian Army. The concert was so-so, but external pathos - over the edge. In 2010, the special forces veterans were probably very rich and made a jubilee celebration at expensive Crocus City. Paphos in general poured over the edge, the concert was vulgar, none of the military leaders Grushnikov congratulated.

In 2015, there was no protocol solemn meeting. The event was held again in the theater of the Russian army. Gathered color special forces. Veterans came from all over the former Soviet Union - except for Ukraine. Gennady Vladimirovich Yushkevich arrived from Belarus. This is a legend of military intelligence, the last of the group "Jack". The one who worked in East Prussia since the end of 1944, almost until Victory, was not disclosed.

Spetsnaz GRU personally congratulated the Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu. Both the Chief of the General Staff and the Chief of the GRU sat in the hall, although they did not come on the scene.
The concert was wonderful. This was the first performance that was entirely devoted to the GRU special forces. Thanks to his nameless organizers. By the way, only the Red Star told in detail about the holiday itself.

When the songs were performed, photos of those who fought in Afghanistan appeared on the screen. Someone died, someone died in recent times, and someone was sitting in the hall.

Oleg Gazmanov finished the concert with his hit “Gentlemen Officers”. He sucked in that the gentlemen's heart was under the gun, and the hall, where only “comrade officers” were, rose somehow meekly.

Paradoxical situation! Experts of the highest level, who in the battle of flying determine who is their own, who is a stranger, can’t understand for twenty-four years before pressing the trigger, that the song is not about them. A GRU colonel nearly nailed me once, when I did not defiantly get up while performing this hit. It is ridiculous, he was an obstinate communist, although he made a good career after the collapse of the Union — he served honestly, did not take bribes, did not trade in his Homeland.

I asked him: did you even try to understand the lyrics? "Gentlemen officers," whose "heart under the gun" is the anthem of the defenders of the White House in August 1991. There, they say, was a battalion of "freedom-loving" deserting officers from the Soviet Army under the modest name of "Russia". Again, they say, they loved to sing to the guitar about how the “quilted jacket Bolsheviks” kept them at gunpoint and led them to be shot. He played along with Rostropovich.

“Russian officers”, whose hearts “beat in harmony” and “shone for freedom” in “this is not from Russian officer life. Verse is not Russian, and the pathos "for our and your freedom" is not ours. We have always been spiritually free. And the freedom of the spirit - it determines everything.

But after all they jump! “Russian officers”, which are essentially Russian officers. When will it end?! And when is a quite good singer Gazmanov throwing this chanson from his repertoire?

In the concert, where everything revolved around the actions of special forces in Afghanistan and in the hot spots of Russia, the subject of Africa suddenly appeared.
The bright scene was built on a verse recitative, where the words “We go across Africa, dust from under our boots” were repeated. The actors, dressed in the form of special forces, showed how difficult it was for them to go, but they achieved their victorious goal.

In the foyer of the Central Academic Theater of the Russian Army, where the solemn event was held, an exposition of paintings by Lieutenant-General of the Reserve Alexander Karpychev was launched. He is probably a veteran of the GRU, and served in Syria. The most vivid of his paintings are devoted to this country. Man, if talented - talented in many ways. The pictures are great. Karpychev is one of the best, without "probably", specialists in the Middle East.

Why would he 24 October 2015, arrange a Syrian opening day, and the artists to sing "about Africa"? I am sure: only the special forces of our country, Russia, could put a final and completely peaceful point in the protracted civil war in Syria.

          I agree. The author listens to one chorus.
          Those who survived in Afghanistan without having spoiled their honor
          Who didn’t make careers from soldier’s blood,
          I sing to regret mother’s officers
          Returning to them the living sons.

            Oh, you convicts, why don’t you remember the original words of this song?
            The night at the White House
            The beast in the last agony
            Crashed, crashed
            On the chest of the guys.
            What have we done, brothers
            could not save them
            and now they are forever
            they look into our eyes
            Oh what a pity you guys
            Blood on wet pavement ...
            and further up to date
            AND TO WHOM SHE WAS DEDICATED, AH? Three defenders stoned at the White House who died!

              The author, quite deliberately and meanly, "pulled out of the closet" the dust-covered and moth-eaten Nazi flag, and began to compare it with the proud Red Banner! And you joyfully sing along to him! am

                In general, if there were such words in the song, and if the song was stolen (appropriated) and remade by Gazmanov, then surely there would already be lawsuits against him from these white house defenders! In our time!
                So - This is a lie, n .... n and provocation !!!

                This song and that one was performed by the "defender of the White House" Gazmanov, he wrote it when the situation changed - he abruptly altered the verse - isn't that disgusting ?! and everyone understands perfectly why this was done - the current situation, however, but don't touch my Mouse - I served 18 years in intelligence - 5 in the military, 3 in the special, 10 in the UAR, And when this miracle - Gazmanov - appears on the stage in military uniform with an awesome iconostasis - I would like to (modernization does not allow), sorry for the frankness - and I could not "knock out" awards for my guys for Chechnya - you see, there is little feat in the awards ..

                    But the most important thing that I want to say is the cool song! whoever wrote it! She very well reflects the spirit of the Russian Warrior, Fighter, Officer! We can say - the Anthem of the Officers of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation! Therefore, they stand up while playing it!

                    And if someone wants to vulgarize, it will not work! And even if she wrote it, the protector of the white house sang!
                    So his spirit was such an honest, officer, even if he was misled, they deceived, but the Russian patriot wrote this song! And now - Text and words - PEOPLE, music - PEOPLE! (As they say!!!)

                    Congratulations to the special forces! I wish them less special operations!

                  The moral image of Gazmanov does not interest me in principle: if we select artists (politicians, officials) by the level of moral degradation, then we will not have either one or the other. But if no one will cry much about the second and third, then among the first there are real talents, and just brushing them off is silly.
                  What and how Gazmanov understood in August 91 - we are unlikely to know. Many people then had a mess in their heads, the smell of "democracy" was in the air, and the "damned communists" had long ago pissed off their eyes with their "lifelong" presence in the Central Committee and on TV screens. I am not making excuses for Gazmanov. But what were the motivating reasons?
                  And further: what - say, poorly rewritten? Is that honest? The song really sounds. That, former, I heard the text before - but it flew out of memory, was erased, did not take root. And this one sinks. This is what we must proceed from!
                  But we do not refuse to listen to the works of Tchaikovsky, just because he was a fagot? Gazmanov is not Tchaikovsky, but ... you know, when a priest in the Church is obsessed with the Devil, they say that the Lord himself serves through him. Here is something similar. hi

              Aivasedo, don't start. For one motive, different songs are sung. To make it clearer, the Kalashnikov assault rifle is a good weapon, but for us it is important in whose hands it is and for what purpose it opened fire to defeat. It is important what thoughts and moods this song evokes. And how they fought for music for the Russian anthem. A song often lives its own life, and sometimes contrary to the wishes of the author.

      Yes, right, specialists, this is primarily intelligence, stocks, - secondary. And the main army solves the main task, according to all the rules of military science. Just a romance, such, from a specialist you can never grow. And ordinary soldiers of any assault group, any army unit, - a low bow, because I know what it is.

        Perhaps you should not directly compare. Each unit has its own specifics, the narrower the tasks, the less specialists they are able to competently solve. For a more effective solution to problems, specialization is simply necessary, this is a general law. I think to agree with me.

    I asked him: have you ever tried to understand the lyrics? “Gentlemen officers,” whose “heart is in sight” is the anthem of the White House defenders in August 1991. There, they say, there was a battalion of "freedom-loving" deserter officers from the Soviet Army under the modest name of "Russia." They again say that they loved to sing with the guitar about how the “Bolshevik quilted jackets" kept them on the fly and led them to execution. Played them Rostropovich
    I haven’t been there, I haven’t heard - but "SPEAK" .. The author has a minus for this - although he put a plus in the article. The impression is that the author himself did not hear the words of the song - so, he pushed "to the top", and got very angry with Gazmanov! Maybe a personal insult, eh, namesake? So why then pull it out for everyone to see?
    "Gentlemen officers" is a common informal address that does not carry any meaning, except to emphasize belonging to the KASTA, worthy of respect. AND "to those who survived in Afghanistan without spoiling their Honor" it’s hardly a shame to hear Gazmanov’s song - it is much more offensive to read such a slanderous and foul analysis, especially in comparison with "deserters who loved to sing with a guitar .." How many centuries BEFORE this "gentlemen officers" served faithfully in Russia - and how much longer will they serve ?! AUTHOR IS WRONG. IMHO.
    And the guys from the Special Forces of the GRU - nothing but respect, and the wishes of the battle Good luck! Invisible and inaudible - but lightning fast and deadly effective! Once again with pleasure - FOR YOU! drinks

        Nothing has changed in Novosibi. In the days of the USSR, 20 percent of "p.i.s.dobolov from political politicians" were prepared there, but this is the basis of the special forces. They are not political officers. wink

But today I found this initial version - both words and execution itself are on the Internet - enjoy and think about what you do when you get up and to whom you give memory, gentlemen officers.

      Actually, this is the Riga OMON very reminiscent of it - it completely fulfilled its duty, being the only unit that really fought with the Latvian separatists. After the coup of 1991 was relocated to Tyumen. Deputy commander Sergei Parfyonov was already extradited from Tyumen to the Latvian authorities, convicted, but transferred to Russia at the personal request of Yeltsin, and he was also pardoned.

      The White House and Gazmanov, like the October Revolution and Zvezdinsky. If Gazmanov knew something and even wrote a song about this, what did he write all his life about sailors? Why didn’t he cry every day about crimes and write about this song? There is no need to pass the pop poet for the immutability of truth. Not shit, but nothing of value.

    I've always considered traitors those who shot tanks at the White House and sat in parts of the bukhai and looking at the collapse of the country.
    And such cool commandos who, on advice, took off their uniforms and came to take a look.
    In your opinion, Yeltsin is not a traitor to the country? GKChP is bad?
    But it seems to me under the GKChP there would be more sense for the country. And the elections would be held and go along the Chinese path, and not under the control of the drunk sold out the whole country.

    But any real separatism must be harshly and mercilessly suppressed, either in the form of some kind of "Cossack", or in the form of some kind of "imamat". Russia is one and indivisible! This postulate is not even discussed; if necessary, it is only confirmed by force. Will the 3rd Chechen war be required? - Will be! The third and last. After it, Chechnya will remain, but other Chechens will live in it - from the Terek Cossack army
