The star of Hero of Russia Lieutenant Colonel Oleg Peshkov transferred to his widow

Colonel-General Viktor Bondarev, Commander-in-Chief of the Air and Space Forces of the Russian Federation, at the 4 State Training Center for Aviation Personnel and Military Tests of the Russian Defense Ministry handed the star of Hero of Russia to the widow of Lieutenant Colonel Oleg Peshkov who died last week in Syria. The press service of the Russian Defense Ministry quoted Viktor Bondarev as saying:

Please accept my sincere condolences. We all share your grief and mourn with your family. Know that your husband has been and remains a true patriot and hero of our country. His name is forever inscribed in history Russia, the Russian army and the aerospace forces of our country.

Tomorrow (December 2), Lieutenant Colonel Oleg Peshkov will be buried in Lipetsk, where citizens continue to bring flowers and candles to the city pilots memorial in memory of the deceased countryman.

Recall that the Su-24M of Oleg Peshkov and Konstantin Murakhtin performed a combat mission in the skies of Syria as part of a counter-terrorist operation. In a fateful second, a pair of fighter-interceptors attacked a Russian plane, striking from behind. Oleg Peshkov and Konstantin Murakhtin were able to eject. At that moment, the militants, whose positions are located in the north of Syria, were already hunting for Russian pilots. Lieutenant Colonel Oleg Peshkov, in all likelihood, was mortally wounded before landing. Konstantin Murakhtin was able to hide from the militants in a wooded area, and a few hours later he was discovered by a search and rescue team, who escorted him to the Hmeymim airbase.

On the eve, the body of Hero of the Russian Federation Oleg Peshkov from Turkey was delivered to Russia.

        During the Second World War and in Afghanistan, it was necessary to try very hard to get the Hero of the USSR. Well, really. And then the pilot died, which is undoubtedly a tragedy, and perhaps he deserves a reward. But, in my opinion, not a Hero. Such awards only devalue the title of Hero. It seems to me.

          This is not just what you think. In one you are wrong, this title has been devalued for a long time, now it did not measure courage, but rather, a social elevator for the awarded, or his family, if posthumous.

        Hello mother! I am writing a letter again.
        Hello mother! Everything is fine as before.
        Everything is normal, the sun is shining, Fog rises over the mountain, You know, mom, it’s not scary here, It’s just Afghanistan.
        How are ours? I saw you in a dream of all.
        How's your little sister? Did she go to fourth grade?
        Would you, mom, visit Olga to visit us more often,
        And tell her that I will be back so that she is waiting for me.
        Mother is reading, and there is fog in her eyes.
        Mother reads, everything here is true and deceit.
        Mother cannot tear herself away from the grave hill
        Son in the earth, and in the palm of his hand - a leaf of this letter
        Mother cannot tear herself away from the grave hill
        The son is in the ground, and in the palm of your hand is the Order of the Red Star.

        Just yesterday, with the autumn wind, Grief knocked on the window,
        And today, at dawn, the Postman brought a letter.
        He is alive in him, he laughs, And so he wants to live long. Hello, mother! Hello, eternity! We have no right to forget them ...

        next and muses. Yuri Slatov

        Another time, but the same trouble for the family, for loved ones, for all of us ...
        Yes, and as a colleague said here, no pluses are needed, not for this I wrote ...

    It is a pity that, as a rule, such awards are given to relatives. And it bribed me that Shoigu personally met the pilot (I can’t tell the body) at the airport. This is the right symbol of recognition of the merits of our ace.

      Respect and respect for this to our MO - S. SHOYGU! I am gnawed (and not only me alone !!!) very deep doubts that both Yeltsin's "best defense minister Pasha-Mercedes" and "Marshal Taburetkin!"
      It seems that people of the same nationality ... one level of education ... one level of responsibility, and the people give them such different ratings!

      They will undoubtedly receive the status of war veterans, and the title of war veteran in Russia implies, in addition to status, a number of social benefits: reduced taxes, increased pensions, medical benefits and utility bills. This is already a step. And most importantly, there should be no posthumous award sheets, or rather losses.

    Lyrics of Alexey Poznakharev - We are Russians! God is with us!
    Russian land, God's abode,
    Inexpressible light pours at the dawn
    Russian land, who offended you?
    Your enemies have no forgiveness.

    We are Russians, God is with us!
    We are Russians, Russians do not sell!
    For the Motherland, the last breath
    We are Russians! Russians are coming!

    Sons remember light prayers,
    Lark ringing, distance of spring rivers.
    For your love, we will go through all the battles
    Russian land, shine forever.


    The sun will not burn, the blizzard will not chill,
    The Russians are coming, the day will be bright.
    The Russians are coming, it will be so,
    People, God is with us, cast off the shadow.


    Eternal memory and Glory to the Russian hero!

      Today is the 9 day. Everlasting memory.

      Oh, how the country mourns you!

      Like clouds or birds
      Flew away, becoming a fiction,
      They flew away, they did not call us ...
      And in heaven they will be met by the holy fathers
      And they spend where peace is for the heroes.
      They gathered all together dashing fighters,
      Who at all times followed the battle for their homeland.

      All the glades swept the snow outside the window
      All the stars flocked to the moon.
      And the giant oaks sleep on the river
      And in the winter night silence
      Two white swans, two white swans
      Fly over the snow to their home side ...

      One killed Aircraft -
      Two angelic souls
      Gone on the last take-off ...
