⚡During the assault, the infantry fighting vehicle in which Mikhail was located was hit by an anti-tank guided missile and caught fire.
Despite the shrapnel wound he received, Sergeant Major Alenkov, not sparing his own life, began to pull his comrades out of the burning car, who were damaged and unable to get out on their own. Having pulled the servicemen out of the fire, Mikhail provided them with first aid, which saved their lives.
⚡After providing first aid, the Marine squad took cover and took up defensive positions. The enemy launched a counterattack. Mikhail Alenkov, as part of the squad, entered the battle with superior forces of Ukrainian nationalists. For three days, Russian troops held the line at the occupied line and prevented the militants from breaking through. Having lost a significant number of manpower and equipment, the enemy began a massive shelling of the Marines’ positions.
⚡Having correctly assessed the situation, Mikhail decided to quickly change his position, which allowed him to avoid the destruction of the squad by enemy artillery fire. Having waited for the arrival of the main forces, the group of senior sergeant of the second article Alenkov went on the offensive and knocked the enemy out of the village.
Well done, Mikhail! Hero! Thank you!
