. Never Penza OMON and his commander did not fall into this hell, though not new to war.
The signal to attack was made in 13 hours. Before the enemy's positions were not more than three hundred meters, and the distance is rapidly decreasing. Of the houses - flew bursts of automatic fire, but not very densely. It seemed that there lingers a handful of fanatics, the clock is already considered. However, the bandits are cunning: sometimes slightly postrelivaya for visibility, come near the advancing closer and suddenly opened heavy fire on them.
It turned out this time. Groups of riot police and special forces Tagil, hiding behind the houses, managed to slip another fifty meters. Before the enemy's position remains very little, and then greedily barking guns. Under fierce fire had to slow down the offensive.
First noticed bandits Senior Lieutenant Sergey Vanin. His team stuck in the house-protection that was necessary, the walls are thick, strong. A little aside, in a broken shed, the entrenched senior lieutenant of militia Rukavitsyn with subordinates.

Gathering momentum, fighting machine was ahead of the advancing, dragging them along. In the open with tubes Б• Б•? on armor will not go, and our trunks were not given the Chechens leaning out of windows, pressed their turn to land.
Michael Revenko rode in its stowed position, leaning out of the hatch, and looked ahead to where the enemy panicked. He saw how the militants are hiding from the impending danger beyond the walls of the building, which is approaching the tank.
The sudden explosion threw a cloud of dust and debris, and then flew to meet him a ball of flame behind him - a few more ... Under cross-fire to him crept Vanin, Mutovkin, someone from the special forces ... They dragged a colonel in the shelter. Vanin's put him two cubes promedola and tried to stop the blood. But the wound was fatal, and all have seen it. Five minutes later he died at the Vanina hands ...
