"The general heroes pull together the people": as the Red Army man Fyodor Poletayev exempted Italy from fascists — RT in Russian


110 years ago in the Ryazan region future hero of the Italian Resistance Fyodor Poletayev was born. In 1942 he was wounded in fights with Hitlerites to Dona and was taken prisoner. Poletayev passed Nazi concentration camps in Poland, Yugoslavia, Italy. With assistance of members of a resistance movement ran and joined the ranks of the Italian guerrillas who noted improbable composure and courage of the Red Army man. In 1945 in battle near Kantalupo his group destroyed more than 20 Nazis and, thanks to Poletayev, about 50 captured. However Fyodor in this fight died.
