We continue to introduce 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. The servicemen are sure that the enemy has no chance of success, because Donbass and Russia are fighting for a just cause.
“Pray to God, victory comes from Him. God is our general, He leads us, ”said Generalissimo Alexander Suvorov, who did not lose a single battle. And he repeated: “The executioner is also polite.”

Corporal Alexander Sizikov
“The gunner-operator of the tank, Corporal Alexander Sizikov, acted as part of a unit that carried out a combat mission to defend one of the settlements liberated from Ukrainian nationalists. The enemy, trying to regain the positions lost earlier, over and over again made attempts to break through the defenses and capture the settlement, actively using artillery fire.
