He was to neutralize the two unexploded mines, plate stabilizers which protruded from the ground and are pretty bored soldiers guarding the bridge, had to constantly guard against, as it does not hurt them ... Especially at night.
Suddenly, from the railway station Argun heard frequent bursts of automatic fire, explosions. That meant one thing: in Argun was a fight! The platoon commander led personnel on alert and soon informed that the radio broadcast: gunmen attacked the station with superior forces, there is going to fight and we need reinforcements ...
