According to the press service of the Ministry of Defense, the holder of three Orders of Courage, Major Denis Chernyakov, told about the exploits of Russian paratroopers in the zone of their own.
As an example, the military cited one of the episodes at the very beginning of the special military operation of the Russian Federation in the Donbass.
“Our control center was shelled. The artillery was being adjusted, and we continued to destroy the enemy. The personnel received both shrapnel and gunshot wounds… Evacuation was not always possible, so the fighters continued to carry out the combat mission,” Chernyakov shared his memories.
