We continue to acquaint you with the heroes of the special operation “Z” – participants in the hostilities in the Donbass. Privates, sergeants, corporals and officers who showed their professional experience, character and completed combat missions. Their determination, assertiveness and combat experience in the Russian Ministry of Defense, in the police units of the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, are given the highest rating.

Our heroes thwarted the attacks and prevented the counteroffensive of the nationalists, for which they received state awards. But they do not serve for the sake of praise and awards. The servicemen are sure that the enemy has no chance of success, because Donbass and Russia are fighting for a just cause.

“The head of the tail does not wait, it will always ripen in due time,” said Generalissimo Alexander Suvorov, who did not lose a single battle.

The enemy, holding the defense in an important area of ​​advance of the Russian troops, equipped fortifications with long-term firing points, armored vehicles and artillery and offered fierce resistance to the Russian landing units. Moving as part of a battalion-tactical group deep into the defenses of the militants in his direction of attack, Belov discovered a well-camouflaged position where a nationalist infantry fighting vehicle fired on our units.

Guards Private Dmitry Karablin

“The commander of the flamethrower platoon of the RCB protection company of the Guards, Private Dmitry Karablin, while on combat duty, performed a combat mission to protect weapons and military equipment at the position of his unit. While patrolling the area, Karablin noticed a suspicious car without registration numbers and insignia, moving in the direction of the positions of the Russian troops. Four people dressed as Russian servicemen got out of the car and began to monitor the surrounding area. Having checked with the higher command about the presence of Russian military personnel in the area at the current time, Guards Private Dmitry Karablin received an order to detain unidentified persons. Having secretly approached a group of servicemen and having chosen a convenient position for observation and firing, Karablin and his comrades detained suspicious persons, forcing them to drop their weapons, lie on the ground, putting their hands behind their heads. Guards Private Dmitry Karablin reported on the radio to the unit commander about the detention of the saboteurs, and then held them until the arrival of the reinforcement group. During the inspection, weapons, ammunition, explosives and reconnaissance equipment were found on the militants. In the course of the investigation, it was established that a sabotage and reconnaissance group of Ukrainian nationalists operated in this area with the task of clarifying the operational situation, monitoring the movement of Russian troops for their subsequent attack, and also disabling Russian military facilities and infrastructure. Valuable information was obtained about the place of deployment, the number and command of the DRG, as well as about the impending provocations against Russian units.
