They will perish with him in the Ulus-Kert. And operator, paratrooper, shot the footage, too, will remain at the height of 776. How is it that a company of Marines fought with two thousand fighters, actually with the regiment?
In early February 2000, Grozny boiler, which turned out to militants was destroyed. Another group of fighters was in the mountains. But the supply of them was cut: on the border in Georgia, where were the reinforcements, ammunition and provisions, landed paratroopers and border guards. Militants drove into another pot. Three thousand under the command of field commander Gelaev broke into the plain. They are clamped in the village of Komsomolskoye, about two thousand killed, many were captured. Basayev and Khattab his troops, more than two thousand foreigners and Chechen fighters, led to the East, hoping to break into neighboring Dagestan. February 29, the militants came to the height of 776, and faced the 6th company of Pskov paratroopers who were only going to take this height. Began meeting engagement.
Eugene Vladykin and Alexander Sparinsky — two of the remaining six after the fight alive. They were at the height of the same route twenty years ago.
“Six or seven wounded were lying boys. See, coming at me twenty five. First thought: your. Listened — the voices not ours, not Russian. And that’s all. For a second all his life remembered,” said Vladykin.
To height-776 moved a hundred paratroopers of the 104th regiment. The solution of the staff stopped them. Moved infantry with the tanks, but was stopped by the barrier of fighters, were not. From the camp of the 108th regiment there were two groups of special troops of airborne forces. Senior Andrey Lobanov. Group spetsnaz FSB Vympel, two airborne company of the 108th regiment. Moving slowly and carefully. At the height of the battle was going.
“the Militants were offered to surrender. Shouted: “Russian, surrender!” We’re not yielded. The arms were not folded. We heard that they shouted to us: “Surrender, we will give you the way to go.” We did not react,” — says the participant of the battle novel hristolubov.
Major Alexander Dostavalov with an airborne platoon was located on a nearby height. He first led the people to the aid of the 6th corps.
“By the hill, the hill to us came to the rescue of Dostavalov with the guys. Some kind of hope that the help came that will live. But as time went on, we had less,” — said Alexander Sparinsky.
Group Andrei Lobanov of the 45th regiment special forces airborne day on March 1 has risen to the height of 776. Living at altitude had already left.
Andrei Lobanov served in the special squad of the legendary 45th special forces airborne regiment. Then in the Center of special purpose FSB, in the “alpha”. Andrew was the commander of the group, who was hurrying to the rescue of the 6-th company.
our First words were: “Damn, guys are fighting”. The sun melted everything. And then, imagine, pink the snow starts to melt pink the water goes. That is, the blood was everywhere much, lost our soldiers,” — said Lobanov.

many of Pskov paratroopers were families, children who had to grow up without a father. In the Ryazan airborne school learns Daria Sokolova — her father, a captain of the airborne, also died at the height of 776.
“Remember, he came from his long business trip in Yugoslavia. I’m in the garden played, could not believe my eyes that the Pope came. When you’re already at a senior age, already understand that it is not enough. Just to hug, kiss, even just to be quiet. And then the dialogue itself is somehow arbitrarily would have happened, would have asked, how are you doing”, — says Daria.
It was the last bloody battle of the war. Militants from the boiler is not released. They were caught, imprisoned, killed in battle, but as a result of special operations. Rarely used artillery and aircraft, the security forces proceeded to address the work. 6th company did our job.
