We continue to introduce you to the heroes of the special operation “Z” – the participants in the military operations in Donbas. Privates, sergeants, corporals and officers who showed their professional experience, character and fulfilled combat tasks. Their determination, perseverance and combat experience in the Russian Ministry of Defense, in the police units of the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics are highly valued.
Our heroes foiled the attacks and prevented the nationalist counter-offensive, for which they received state awards. But they do not serve for praise and rewards. The military personnel are sure that the enemy has no chance of success, because Donbas and Russia are fighting for a just cause.
“Behold the hell over which madness reigns even more strongly at the end of the age. This hell, spreading its jaws to the mountains of the Alps, raises a new Rome, the foundation of which is close to the abyss, “warned Generalissimo Alexander Suvorov, who did not lose a single battle. And he was also sure that: “Ignorance devours states and sovereigns, faith, rights, and morals.”
