They are in battles — from the very beginning of the special operation in Ukraine. About real heroes: officers, sergeants, privates

CrimeaPRESS reports:

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation continues the already traditional chronicle of the heroism of Russian soldiers — participants in a special operation in Ukraine. Recall that it started at the end of February. All these days: both in battle, and during respite, and during the regrouping of troops, real professionals are serving in the military: officers, ensigns, sergeants, and privates. Each story is the fate of a person, compressed moments of life, a moment of truth. In a word, as in the song: “ Figure out who you are: a coward, or a chosen one of fate. And get a taste of real wrestling.» These guys are definitely not cowards.

Since the beginning of the special military operation, Senior Warrant Officer Vyacheslav Yusupov has been providing communications to units of the group of Russian troops. As a result of the shelling of Ukrainian nationalists, fragments of the Tochka-U tactical missile damaged a satellite communications station. Under heavy enemy fire, Vyacheslav Yusupov evacuated the personnel to a safe place, where the soldiers were given first aid, and he himself restored the satellite communication station transceiver unit damaged by fragments. The selfless actions of Vyacheslav Yusupov and his high professionalism made it possible to quickly restore the main means of communication of the group and save the lives of wounded comrades.
