His luck limit. From the biography of the sapper-border guard Oleg Ulevaty

About & nbsp; first encounter with & nbsp; real danger. & mdash; & nbsp; Yes, ours. You will teach now. And & nbsp; all & nbsp; but the main guardian angel was the & nbsp; knowledge that we & nbsp; possessed, and & nbsp; more, so to speak, & nbsp; & mdash; overpowering fear. Will you go there '? '' I & nbsp; answer him: “ Comrade General of the Army, return me to the & nbsp; detachment. For example, in & nbsp; volume & nbsp; Marmole drew attention to & nbsp; the fact that there are many Chinese thermos for water lying around. Pah-pah-pah, so as not to jinx. Our, and & nbsp; or rather, my engineering group in the & nbsp; composition of the military forces moved to the & nbsp; indicated area on the & nbsp; direction of entrance to the & nbsp; Tangimarmol gorge with & nbsp; the purpose of checking the terrain and & nbsp; the entire direction to & nbsp; the presence of mines and & nbsp; demining actions. And & nbsp; don't & nbsp; touch anything! How much does it cost to celebrate the New Year? Surely the & nbsp; probable enemy has new mines and & nbsp; even more insidious traps. & mdash; & nbsp; And & nbsp; what happened to you? & mdash; & nbsp; In & nbsp; any exit to & nbsp; execution of a combat mission there is an element of danger. We didn’t have time to pass and & nbsp; twenty meters, as we were overtaken by the army “ Ural '' and & nbsp; here & nbsp; is blown up by & nbsp; mine. The wires from the & nbsp; land mine went to the & nbsp; side of the entrance to the & nbsp; gorge. Then he asks: “ Well, Major, where are you going to serve next? & mdash; & nbsp; Exactly! At that time, significant forces of both border troops and & nbsp; army were involved against the mujahideen. And & nbsp; the teacher says: “ Sons, just talk, you & nbsp; will not crawl in & nbsp; these puddles. Began their & nbsp; cut off the vein behind & nbsp; residential. I & nbsp; drove them & nbsp; to the & nbsp; side. But & nbsp; here he & nbsp; said: “ Everything, Major, you & nbsp; won yours. From & nbsp; they made landmines, with which they closed the entrance to the & nbsp; Marmolskoe gorge and & nbsp; the gorge itself. When they blew up the land mine, & nbsp; about which I & nbsp; told, a funnel was formed at the & nbsp; place of detonation, & nbsp; into which an armored personnel carrier could fit. And & nbsp; you, sapper, were obliged to walk on & nbsp; grass every day, then & nbsp; is to risk your own life for the sake of others. “ The danger was everywhere '' Vladimir Snegirev, AiF: & nbsp; & mdash; & nbsp; Oleg Vitalievich, I & nbsp; remember my first Afghan experience well. In total, we & nbsp; then defused more than thirty guided landmines, twenty-five anti-tank mines, several booby traps, found warehouses with & nbsp; ammunition and & nbsp; food. Colonel Oleg Ulevaty was one of the & nbsp; participants in those events. & mdash; & nbsp; And & nbsp; what did you & nbsp; do with & nbsp; these mines? Confused, first stuck an antiemetic, then promedol, he crawled to the & nbsp; edge of the minefield, there the guys picked me up. I & nbsp; fall, as clipped, dust, sand … And & nbsp; my head is just between two other anti-personnel mines. I acutely felt this danger for the first time in the course of the Marmol operation. Did you know their & nbsp; strengths and & nbsp; weaknesses? Soon I see a dark gray body and & nbsp; a bomb shank. This means that when there is a real battle, you & nbsp; will die & raquo ;. & Nbsp; I had two syringes & nbsp; & mdash; one with & nbsp; antiemetic drug, the other with & nbsp; promedol. Such tension. Weekly “Arguments and Facts” No. I began to dig this bomb, I see: the sand at & nbsp; crumbled under my feet and & nbsp; my knees rest right on the & nbsp; pressure cover anti-tank mine TS/6.1. They poured TNT and & nbsp; into & nbsp; plastic bottles, and & nbsp; into & nbsp; specially sewn bags made of & nbsp; leather. Then with a knife he cut off a dangling piece of muscle himself. These were the positions of the 'spirits'. Together with & nbsp; my deputy, senior warrant officer Volodya Kireev, climbed to the & nbsp; hill, there they found dug trenches with & nbsp; rifle cells. Commander General of the Army Vadim Alexandrovich Matrosov presented the Order of the Red Banner. One mine was removed, another … I think: I need to take a break, a premonition of some kind appeared. Oleg Ulevaty : & nbsp; & mdash; & nbsp; Veterans taught us at the & nbsp; academy. I & nbsp; gave my consent. & mdash; & nbsp; All land mines were controlled. & mdash; & nbsp; What is a vole? And the & nbsp; mine was installed on & nbsp; just in case the car hits it, then & nbsp; will work like a detonator. Then, when I began to continue, sweat flowed from my palms. Soviet border guards, along with & nbsp; soldiers of the 40th Army, performed their duty in & nbsp; Afghanistan until & nbsp; mid-February 1989 & nbsp; g. In & nbsp; these dushman kishlaks, there were many objects to which the hand itself reached. There was also a vole there. Having settled in & nbsp; one of the & nbsp; “ pockets '' of the canyon, we covered our location with signal mines. I & nbsp; dipped my palms into the & nbsp; dust, then wiped it off and & nbsp; started to work again. < img src = "https://static1-repo.aif.ru/1/c3/1936092/c/0f3317be406fad697c3015e0809f7e8f.jpg" height = "120" width = "100" style = "display: block;" /> They were & nbsp; assigned an area of ​​responsibility up to & nbsp; 100 & nbsp; km along the entire Soviet-Afghan border & nbsp; & mdash; The bandit formations then began to regularly violate our lines, shelling settlements, and mining the territory. & mdash; & nbsp; But & nbsp; how did it happen that you & nbsp; yourself didn & nbsp; save yourself? I'm & nbsp; on & nbsp; this account is completely calm. I & nbsp; the operational duty officer in the & nbsp; detachment. I walked only on & nbsp; asphalt. I pulled my thigh to stop the bleeding. Seryozha Smirnov, his friend, they are from & nbsp; the same city of Bogoroditsk, they studied together at & nbsp; school. I just decided: if & nbsp; to die, then & nbsp; humanly: to save the soldiers in & nbsp; first of all. B & nbsp; get the fighters first. A part of his left leg was torn off at & nbsp; Sergei, fragments of & nbsp; Igor went along the & nbsp; back, along & nbsp; buttocks. & Nbsp; & mdash; & nbsp; Was the land mine controlled? & mdash; & nbsp; This, of course, is far from & nbsp; everything. And & nbsp; here I & nbsp; hesitated, it was somehow scary to give myself an injection. And & nbsp; before & nbsp; this in the & nbsp; school there were also front-line soldiers, very tough teachers. Did you & nbsp; continue the service? & mdash; & nbsp; Knew, but & nbsp; there is never a 100% guarantee that in this case you & nbsp; will do everything right. “ Get the fighters first! We went very carefully, started cleaning all the way. The group returned to the & nbsp; base only by & nbsp; midnight and & nbsp; no loss. I & nbsp; on & nbsp; hands slowly wrung out, because in & nbsp; this moment at & nbsp; everything just went cold to me. Crazed, shell-shocked, but, thank God, alive. & mdash; & nbsp; Such injuries mean huge blood loss, painful shock. Although here's what I can remember: & nbsp; us in the & nbsp; maneuvering groups, & nbsp; most of the fighters had crosses. And & nbsp; laughter and & nbsp; sin! Our frontier faculty has opened in the Military Engineering Academy. Engineering troops have a rich history, having traveled for & nbsp; 320 years a glorious path of serving their Fatherland. It turned out & nbsp; & mdash; there are explosives inside. & mdash; & nbsp; Was treated in & nbsp; hospitals & nbsp; & mdash; first in & nbsp; Dushanbe, then in & nbsp; Golitsyn. And & nbsp; you & nbsp; by & nbsp; the nature of your work barely & nbsp; did not & nbsp; every day it & nbsp; experienced. 51. She stood slightly to the side of the & nbsp; body of the bomb. Matrosov was also informed on the & nbsp; results of the Marmol operation that Ulevaty worked successfully there. Minesweepers were not an exception. The entire bottom of the trenches was strewn with a thick layer of empty shells. My foot was torn off, and I'm afraid to give myself an injection. Shortly before & nbsp; this “ perfume '' captured cars with bombs near Mazar-i-Sharif. They, apparently, were set from the & nbsp; calculation “ do not & nbsp; regret ''. Returning home after a year's business trip “ for the & nbsp; river '', for a long time I could not bring myself to step on the & nbsp; lawn: such was the fear of being blown up by a mine. Look, my sapper Sasha Malygin, walking a little ahead, turns around and & nbsp; with his eyes points at the & nbsp; flag stuck by him: there is something suspicious. Истoчник aif.ru 'Surprises', & nbsp; bringing death & mdash; & nbsp; You, being a cadet or student of the academy, studied all these mines and & nbsp; traps? & mdash; & nbsp; Personally, & nbsp; I didn't & nbsp; had any special superstitions. Next, you need to give an anesthetic injection. Therefore, & nbsp; we had the strictest prohibition: do not & nbsp; leave behind various containers. Are we & nbsp; for & nbsp; ready? I am sure that my fellow sappers will fulfill any assigned task. I also want to note that there were many cases when some otherworldly force protected you. Personnel before the start of the operation in the Marmolsky gorge. You cannot endlessly tempt fate. This is Igor Nikonov, Sergeant from our engineering platoon, deputy commander. The commander says: “ Oleg, take pictures, we are urgently leaving for & nbsp; Imam-Sahib, there is an explosion. A fighter rushes to me to & nbsp; & mdash; and & nbsp; is also a subversion. Probably there were some superstitions, traditions? I remember we had training mining: Kaliningrad, rain, puddles. As soon as I put my foot on the & nbsp; ground, it slipped, an explosion sounded. There were always surprises. These are the most technically equipped troops, with & nbsp; modern technology, qualified specialists. If & nbsp; would have pressed the & nbsp; lid so that the water would flow out, then & nbsp; would be an explosion. Since childhood I was afraid of injections. Seryozha picks up his friend & nbsp; arms, and & nbsp; explodes again, both fall. Already at the end of the treatment, I was summoned to & nbsp; Lubyanka, where the command of the border troops was located. They began to work. This was the only time in my combat practice when two of my fighters were simultaneously blown up. By the way, another mine was found under the land mine. '' By that time I was already accustomed to walking on a prosthesis, I felt good. '' Have arrived. '' & mdash; & nbsp; In & nbsp; war & nbsp; each person has their own limit & nbsp; & mdash; and & nbsp; to & nbsp; life, and & nbsp; to & nbsp; death. There is a minefield. I understood: if it explodes now, then & nbsp; will blow me to & nbsp; atoms. Either right on the & nbsp; place, or dragging to the & nbsp; side. I gave the command to the fighters to move back further, take a bayonet-knife, slowly rake the ground. & mdash; & nbsp; Wire P-274, two-core. & mdash; & nbsp; Severed a foot. Such a trap. After that we got down to work. Afghan sappers worked nearby, but & nbsp; they interfered more. The air wave exposed the pressure covers of adjacent mines. & mdash; & nbsp; blew up. Well, that's all. I & nbsp; raised from & nbsp; earth alone, I feel: some he is unusually heavy. I & nbsp; take a mine detector from & nbsp; start to drive, and & nbsp; immediately in & nbsp; headphones there is a clear signal amplification. All this is right in front of & nbsp; eyes: cotton, the cabin shook, the front left wheel flies off, the driver falls out. & mdash; & nbsp; 1986 & nbsp; year, July. & Nbsp; I had a knife, but & nbsp; it got lost somewhere, the guys threw me another one. And & nbsp; to & nbsp; nobody & nbsp; can come & nbsp; & mdash; all around mines … & mdash; & nbsp; Our officer rushed to me Sergey Agapov, but & nbsp; I & nbsp; shouted to him: “ Back! 22/12/2021 40 & nbsp; years ago, in & nbsp; December 1981 & nbsp;, at & nbsp; at the very top, it was decided to introduce units of the USSR border troops into & nbsp; the territory of Afghanistan. The lid played the role of a lock. & nbsp; Photo: nashural.ru & mdash; & nbsp; Tell us about & nbsp; your first military exit. & mdash; & nbsp; And & nbsp; how are the engineering troops equipped now? & Nbsp; & mdash; & nbsp; Was it a Soviet bomb?
