I dream about my husband every night - he takes him by the hand, asks him to be strong...”
The widow of 40-year-old Colonel Viktor Isaikin - about her family and fate

. A 40-year-old native of the Ardatov village of Chukaly in Mordovia, Colonel of Tank Forces Viktor Isaikin died on the first day of a special military operation. February 24, 2022. A fellow soldier told his wife Valentina the terrible news over the phone. “I didn’t want to believe it,” says the woman. - But then the military registration and enlistment office confirmed the information. I went to Rostov-on-Don to identify the body... I don’t remember the funeral at all, it was so difficult. I tried to hold on for the sake of my three children. The youngest, Viyana, was only one and a half years old at the time...” The hero’s 38-year-old widow told Tatyana Novikova her story.
When our convoy passed through populated areas, civilians came out to the road. They filmed us on their phones. Their attitude was restrained. They did not show joy, but I did not see any open protests either. In my opinion, people were waiting for peace, which after eight years of fighting could only be established by military force..... Nevertheless, they were waiting for us.
On the first day, our convoy was ambushed by the Ukrainian armed forces. We were shelled right on the march, and several of our vehicles were hit. It was a baptism of fire for me. When I saw the Ukrainian equipment standing at a distance, I gave the command to my unit to turn the guns.
The battle was hard. We came out victorious, although the attack was sudden. In that battle our commander - Colonel Viktor Isaikin - was killed. The press wrote a lot about it, as it was the first death of a Russian officer of such rank.

Of Note: The other death of such "Rank" was Colonel Ruslan Rudnev, Regiment Commander and SU-25 Pilot, so much for being expected to be greeted peacefully they sent Attack Aircraft and over 100 Cruise Missiles....
