The Russian military involved in a special military operation to protect Donbass, demilitarize and denazify Ukraine, perform combat missions not only in battle, but also after, when it is necessary to hold the recaptured lines, stop an offensive or sabotage. The Ministry of Defense spoke about their heroic work on Saturday, September 24th.
The master of the evacuation department of the repair platoon, Sergeant Vladimir Kostin, was engaged in the evacuation, restoration and repair of military equipment. During the participation in the special operation, the sergeant’s department promptly restored and returned to service more than 30 units of special military equipment.
Even under incessant artillery fire, Kostin dismantled and replaced the damaged assembly of the heavy mechanized bridge, which helped the motorized rifle units successfully cross the water barrier.
Thanks to the work of Sergeant Kostin, it was possible to prevent losses from enemy artillery fire and timely redeploy groups to pre-prepared defensive positions.
The crew of Private Andrey Nikiforov provided artillery support to units in repulsing an attack by superior enemy forces. With well-aimed fire from cannon artillery, Nikiforov inflicted significant damage on the advancing nationalist forces. Four enemy firing points were suppressed and 15 nationalists were destroyed. The enemy offensive was thwarted, and the enemy was driven back to their original positions.
Artilleryman Sergeant Vladimir Malchikov, as part of the gun crew, supported the defending Russian units for several days under continuous nationalist artillery fire. The sergeant’s crew destroyed nine pieces of enemy equipment, and the blows inflicted on the enemy helped the allied forces to defeat the units of the advancing nationalists.
The Russian servicemen were able to push the enemy back from the defensive lines and avoid casualties among the personnel.
The division of senior gunner Sergeant Dmitry Topchiev performed equipment tasks
and preparation of defensive lines in a given area. An urgent order forced the sergeant to go with a small group of subordinates to mine defensive positions on the front line.
Under massive artillery fire from the enemy, who was conducting artillery preparation before the offensive, Sergeant Topchiev and his colleagues mined the approaches to the positions of the airborne assault company. At this time, the enemy went on the offensive.
But on the way to the positions, the tanks and combat vehicles of the nationalists were blown up by a minefield installed by Topchiev and colleagues. The loss of military equipment forced the enemy to retreat. And the unit of Sergeant Topchiev moved to prepared defensive positions.
On the eve of September 23, the Ministry of Defense told how the Russian military cope with combat missions under enemy artillery fire.
And about how the training, education and tests of future crews of tanks and armored personnel carriers are going, the day before, on September 22, Izvestia correspondent Alexander Morozov told.
