Chukarin was born in Krasnoarmeyskoye village in Donetsk Oblast to a Don Cossack father and a Greek mother

 

in 1941 volunteered to the Soviet Army. He was wounded, taken prisoner of war near Poltava and sent to a prisoner camp in Sandbostel. He then went through a chain of 17 prisoner camps and by the time when he was freed in 1945 weighed only 40 kg. He was not accepted back to the sports institute in Kiev, and studied in a similar institution in Lviv. In 1946 he already competed in gymnastics at the Soviet national championships; next year he finished fifth, and in 1948 won a national title. He became the all-around Soviet champion in 1949 and repeated this achievement in 1950, 1951, 1953 and 1955.[3]

 

 

Thanks USC.

 

It is history that goes back to ancient times that when Russians and Greeks are united they are UNBEATABLE!

 

Best regards.

The US military males give their lives for legalized murder and mayhem.

Russian Men give their lives to actually help People.

Battle for Height 776

 

In Chechnya, have established a memorial sign in the place of death of the Pskov paratroopers

a8afbc8596cb5e5cec6acbf536fcf3f3.jpg

The head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov and the Governor of the Pskov area Andrey Turchak has opened a memorial sign — a memorial cross on the spot death of the 84 paratroopers of the 6th company of the 76th airborne assault division. About it reports a press-service of administration.

A memorable sign is set in the village of Ulus-Kert of the Shatoi district of Chechnya. The cross height is 2.6 meters weight — 10 tons, it is made of dark gray granite. On the cross there is the inscription “Nika”, the name of the Greek goddess of victory.

A memorial installed at the place where during the Second Chechen campaign kept the defense in the 76th airborne assault division under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Mark Eutuchin. In 2000, in one of the battles with superior enemy forces killed 84 of 90 paratroopers 6-th company.

Among the dead paratroopers were people of different faiths, so the memorial sign has no specific religious affiliation. The composition recalls the image of the Order of Courage and brings together a universal symbol of the sun, the world tree, of life and death.

The second Chechen war lasted almost 10 years and was officially completed in April 2009. According to official figures, it killed at least 7385 Russian soldiers.

I am sorry such a terrible tragedy happened Nemesis. Feared by the enemy,Givi was a soldier worthy of the respect and gratitude of those he defended. I'm sure we all are aware of how much this cowardly deed has caused grief for you and we all support you and share your pain.

Russia NEVER Surrenders: 90 Russian Paratroopers Fought 2000 Jihadists in Battle For Height 776 (VIDEO)

True grit.

If you believe Hollywood, the only heroic battle the Russians have ever fought is Stalingrad — and it was just a minor event dwarfed by Tom Hanks and his superhuman liberation of Europe.

Here's a bit of military history for you: 90 Russian paratroopers took on 2000+ jihadists led by a Saudi terrorist during the Second Chechen War. Only six Russians survived — but they vanquished no less than 500 "moderate rebels" (to use the Syrian term).

We'll set the scene with a highly politicized Wiki entry:

In late February 2000, the Russian military attempted to surround and destroy a large Chechen separatist force (including many foreign fighters) withdrawing from the Chechen capital Grozny to Shatoy and Vedeno in the southern mountains of Chechnya following the 1999–2000 siege and capture of Grozny and the rebel main force's breakout from the city earlier that month. On 29 February 2000, just hours after Russian Defense Minister Igor Sergeyev had assured his government that the Chechen War was over, an isolated Russian force composed mainly of a company of paratroopers of the 76th Airborne Division from the city of Pskov found itself cut off by a retreating Chechen column led by Ibn Al-Khattab, commander of foreign fighters in Chechnya. After heavy close-quarters overnight fighting, Russian positions on the hill were overrun and most of the soldiers were killed.

 

If you enjoyed this video, here is an great article on the battle, although be mindful of the lackluster English.

The war in Chechniyah was brought to Russia by it's sponsors:  The USA, Saudis, Israelis and Vatican.

And of course the UK may have helped too.

 

And of course the immense tragedies of Armagedon (WW2) was brought to Europe and Russia by the same folks minus the Saudis.

 

The serial is in color.

Thanks

 

You welcome, friend.

 

Still watching-searching the pictures of the Graduation classes....

 

I'm looking for the photos of the falled...

The final class with which the grandfather (the school's director) went to defend the approaches to Leningrad. It was under Luga town . They only had rifles against the tanks of Manstein. They were defeated, almost killed, and the wounded were taken prisoner. Then the grandfather fled from captivity in Poland... but this is another story.
