The funeral of assassinated Kombrig* A B Mozgovoi, killed in a junta terrorist assassination, turned into a fervent patriotic rally. Almost all the people in Alchevsk came to say farewell to their hero. In paying tribute to the slain Mozgovoi, people talked about the Russian World and Novorossiya as the ideals that he fought and died for. One of his soldiers said, “You can’t destroy our land; it was impossible to break these heroes. We won’t give up… we’ll always uphold your ideals”. Another of his soldiers emphasised the need to fight on against the junta until all the Donbass and the Ukraine were free, shouting, “We should go to the West!” The crowd roared back, “We WILL go! We WILL go!” Mozgovoi and his companions were buried together at the local cemetery.

TEXT:

It seems to me that sometimes that soldiers
Who didn’t come home from the blood-soaked battlefields,
Weren’t laid to rest in the earth,
But turned into white cranes…

That ever since that time long ago
They have been flying, calling,
Maybe that’s why we often, and sadly,
Fall silent, staring into the sky!

The tired flock flies and flies up in the sky,
It flies in the fog, as the day dies,
And in this formation there’s a space;
Maybe it’s a place for me.

The day will come when I will also drift
With the flock of the cranes in the same blue-grey haze,
Calling from the sky, in the language of the birds,
The names of you I have left on earth.

It seems to me sometimes that soldiers
Who didn’t come home from the blood-soaked battlefields,
Weren’t laid to rest in the earth,
But turned into white cranes…

Today, at an outdoor concert in Lugansk on the square before the Luspekaev Theatre given by Peoples Artist of the USSR I D Kobzon, Chairman of the LNR Government I V Plotnitsky ordered the LNR Peoples Soviet to decide upon a proper memorial for Kombrig* A B Mozgovoi, commander of 4 Territorial Defence Battalion of the LNR NM (Peoples Armed Forces).

  • Kombrig: Brigade Commander, standard Russian acronym

On the evening of 23 May, Mozgovoi died tragically in an attack that many think was a junta terakt*. In addition to three guards and his media spokesman, two civilians died in the incident. Plotnitsky noted, “I instructed the Peoples Soviet to give proper tribute to Aleksei Borisovich. They’ll decide whether to erect a monument or install a plaque. He was a man who selflessly served the Republic, fought hard, and had his own views. Everybody knows that we could get into some really hot debates, but we always knew and realised that we stood shoulder-to-shoulder to defend our motherland, our Republic”.

  • Terakt: Russian acronym for “terrorist act”

In memory of the fallen commander, Plotnitsky asked Kobzon to start his concert with the famous song Zhuravli (White Cranes). Plotnitsky noted that Kobzon’s visit to Lugansk “was like a splash of cold water on a hot afternoon, like getting a piece of bread during a time of blockade. We said that when we found it difficult, you came to us, Iosif Davydovich. Indeed, it’s really difficult today”. Kobzon said that he was hurt and sad because he had to bid farewell “to a beautiful fellow countryman, Kombrig Aleksei Borisovich Mozgovoi. There was talk that we should cancel our concert, move it to another day. Yet we came, Igor Venediktovich, as we believe that it’s necessary have this assembly to commemorate the passing of Aleksei Borisovich. When they listen to songs about podvigs* and battle, our compatriots will once again remember Aleksei Borisovich and honour his memory”.

  • Podvig: Should NEVER be “Englished”… one of the most powerful words in the Russian language. There are literally no English equivalents strong enough. Podvig has overtones of “epic”, “heroic”, “bravery”, “self-sacrifice”, “victory”, “effort”, and “triumph”. It’s best to leave it as is, and admit that English lacks the necessary material to give meaning to this word.

Colleagues and Locals Attended Mozgovoi Funeral in Alchevsk

00 A B Mozgovoi. Funeral 01. 27.05.15

______________________________

Colleagues and locals gathered in Alchevsk in the square in front of the former SBU building to bid farewell to the victims of the junta terrorist attack on A B Mozgovoi, commander of the LNR Peoples Armed Forces (LNR NM) 4 Territorial Defence Battalion, and his comrades. On the evening of 23 May, Mozgovoi died tragically in an attack that many think was a junta terakt*. In addition to three guards and his media spokesman, two civilians died in the incident. Despite pouring rain, some 2,000 people gathered in the square. Along with the burial service served by several priests, a secular mourning ceremony took place on the square. The crowd heard tributes from Mozgovoi’s colleagues, officials of the LNR Government and the LNR NM, and ordinary citizens. LNR NM Deputy Commander Sergei Kozlov said, “We bid farewell, we mark the last earthly journey of Aleksei Borisovich Mozgovoi and his colleagues. These people first raised the banner of anti-fascism in the Donbass and led our people. They killed them. However, the Prizirak unit continues to exist and writes history. Eternal memory to the fallen!”

  • Terakt: Russian acronym for “terrorist action”

In fact, on 24 May, the LNR Genprokuratura opened a case on the incident under Article 115 Part 2 Paragraph 1 of the UK*, “Murder of two or more people”. The LNR Genprokurator and LNR Chairman of the Government took personal control of the investigation. The victims of the attack, in addition to Mozgovoi, were his media spokesman Anna Samelyuk, and bodyguards Aleksei Kalashin, Aleksandr Yuriev, and Andrei Ryazhsky. In addition, two civilians died… a married couple, Yakov and Anastasia Traky. Anastasia was in the last month of pregnancy. Investigators doped out different versions of the incident, including junta terrorism. Previously, the nationalist bandit group “Тени” (Teni: Shadows) took responsibility for killing Mozgovoi. Earlier, LNR Chairman of the Government I V Plotnitsky said, “The attack on A B Mozgovoi and his companions was an attack on all of us, on the people that protect the LNR’s right to exist”.

27 May 2015. In Memory of Kombrig Aleksei Borisovich Mozgovoi… A Hero in the Mould of Dovator and Panfilov

00 A B Mozgovoi 01. 27.05.15

______________________________

I wrote a friend:

I’m doping out a post comparing A B Mozgovoi to I V Panfilov and L M Dovator (click here for an earlier post on these men). The latter’s deaths in the Battle of Moscow led their troops to greater podvigs of victory. Soon after Mozgovoi’s death, his comrades went out and tracked down four junta terrorist bands, killing 26 bandits. They killed Mozgovoi… but his spirit lives, and it’s filled the patriot forces with a terrible resolve.

The Uniate nationalists will regret killing Aleksei Borisovich. The patriot forces are out for revenge…
