Last week we talked about the history of the military pilot, senior lieutenant of naval aviation Sergei Nefedov. He was threatened with a punishment for his flight error, and most importantly - a long excommunication from the sky and flights.
Many experts in the field of flight safety and aviation medicine, as well as veterans of military aviation, first of all countrymen of Armavir, sounded the alarm. They considered unfair possible punishment.
About their position and wrote "MK", based on the documents of the investigation. The correspondent wanted to tell the readers about the problem and, of course, help the senior lieutenant.
"MK" did not count on a quick and especially positive reaction to the article from the military. But the very next day after the publication of the publication from the official representative of the Ministry of Defense, we heard that Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu filed a petition to the Chief Military Prosecutor Valery Petrov with a request to take personal control of the criminal case against the senior lieutenant. The appeal notes that “officer S.Nefedov is characterized by all commanders exclusively from the positive side and is certainly worthy of continuing to serve the Fatherland as a military pilot of naval aviation.”
Agree, this guarantee is worth a lot. It shows that the military department is not indifferent to the fate of military personnel.
Shortly after publication, the mother of the pilot, Olga Nikolaevna Nefedova, also called the editorial office. She told me that for many months she fought for a fair decision to be made regarding her son. Forces were running out. The case was delayed, and suddenly such news. “I am sincerely grateful to Sergey Kuzhugetovich for such a position. I really want my son to have a chance to continue his military service as a pilot for the benefit of our Motherland. I can not believe that the one and a half year old ordeals of our family can finally end! Fulfilling the highest duty to the Motherland, protecting it and protecting it, any soldier must be sure that, if necessary, he himself will be protected, ”said Olga Nikolayevna.

The grave of the Unknown Soldier appeared at the Kremlin wall on December 3, 1966. With military honors, the earth was buried in dust, taken from a mass grave located at the 40th kilometer of the Leningrad highway, near Zelenograd near Moscow. There in November-December 1941 there were bloody battles. It was not possible to establish whose ashes were buried. The Ministry of Defense has published a selection of unique documents from the Central Archive funds, telling about which units fought near the mass grave near the settlements of Kryukovo, Matushkino, Savelyk, Bolshie Rzhavki.
