In 1942, he fought at Stalingrad, where he was seriously wounded. After the hospital, he fought with a scout on the Leningrad front, where, at Sinyavino heights, he first burst into the enemy's trench, destroyed a dugout with grenades, took out valuable documents and was presented for awarding the first Order of Glory, ”said Metelitsa.

He was introduced to the second Order of Glory within a few days because “acting in the enemy's rear near the Yamm station of the Pskov Region, he made his way to the firing position of the enemy’s gun, entered into battle with the expectation, in a fight killed several Nazis, captured one and delivered to the location of the part. "

The third Order of Glory Karachev was awarded at the very end of the war - April 22 1945 g - "for heroic actions in battle in the area of ​​the Polish city of Tolkemite".

During the war years, Red Army soldier Nikolai Karachev was awarded three Orders of Glory, the Order of the Patriotic War of the I degree, the Order of the Red Star and the Medal "For Courage".

    Time is inexorable. No one lives forever. The memory of the exploits of our grandfathers is what needs to be preserved.

      I’m sure that Russian schools should tell about their exploits by the names of surviving heroes of the Second World War and it doesn’t matter where they live, they were all heroes of our great country! Eternal memory to you and rest in peace!

        Maybe someone can find in the Archive who has permission and the opportunity about this veteran about his exploits and why he became the Knights of the Order of Glory! It would be very informative. Perhaps they wrote an article.

      The Kingdom of heaven! It’s a pity, but I agree about the frailty of life. The memory of the exploits of the grandfathers, it is necessary not only to preserve, but to make it the main priority in the education of future generations, our people!

    - Eternal memory to the heroes-winners, liberators of our Fatherland. It is so unfortunate that people only remember them on the ninth of May. I sincerely hope that their relatives, children and grandchildren take good care of them. These people like no other deserve a decent old age without household problems. Long you, veterans, and good health!

      Esta, in! And there is! even in the 19th century they were not called “wild tribes of Estonians”, but they didn’t teach us this at school, and after school too, political correctness however! And information can be gleaned in the historical literature of Russia until 1917!

    I remember that before a disco in the early 80s on May 9, a veteran was invited to tell the young people about the war. But he was a simple man, a scout, told how he cut the throats of the Fritz, literally cut, told in detail. Impressed for a lifetime. Bow to them all.

      My grandfather told me about it. (How he cut) He was at the beginning of the war, urgently went to Stryi (the homeland of Bandera), if I were at the time of the story, a little older book could have been written. Early grandfather left at age 69, almost 4 years of concentration camps, and then our filtration health effects.

      Yes, that's for sure. Probably the worst thing he experienced not in the war, but in our time, in modern Estonia with its current fascist ideology. Let His Soul rest even in Heaven, Eternal Glory to the Hero !.

    Thank you for everything and forgive us that we did not save your homeland !!!


    They defended their homeland, realizing in time that surrendering would doom themselves and their descendants to shame, slavery and destruction ...

    We realized this when it was too late ...

    I think that many people remember the talk that surrendering to Hitler we would live richly and happily (like the current Germans) ... But this Stalin and his Red Army supposedly did not allow us to join European values ​​and their "cornucopia." ..

    Such nonsense, from the late 80s until recently, was actively voiced by both "experts" and ordinary citizens of countries that arose on the territory of the Soviet Union - and in the zone of Soviet influence. Many times I heard similar speeches from fellow citizens and foreign guests (Bulgarians, Poles and others).

    Unfortunately, today too, far from all have seen ...

    And I had a mentor when I was practicing at the factory, a veteran of the Great Patriotic War, a former intelligence commander, senior lieutenant, cavalier of the orders of the Patriotic War, the Red Banner, medals "For the Defense of Kiev", "For the Victory over Germany" .. He’s 1943 was only 18 years old when he was trained in the courses of junior commanders. So until the end of the war he was in the army. He returned, he studied at a vocational school for a turner, and so until his retirement he worked .. Two years ago he died .. Eternal memory to my first mentor, like this soldier, a full gentleman of the Order of Glory !!

      And when a death thunder struck over them,
      Our destiny drew something else
      To us, not recruited, to us, not attributed
      To the army of the surrounding quarter.

      The snowstorms have gone gray,
      All calendars flew around.
      Years of our lives, as trains, flew by,
      How we have been orphaned for a long time!
