Weakened by the troops of the 20th Army, forced to stretch their positions on a wide area Front, came close to the outskirts of Gzhatsk, but take it and could not. The offensive stalled and then petered out altogether. January 18-22, near the village southwest of Desire Vyazma were thrown out with parachutes two battalions of the 201st Airborne Brigade and the 250th Airborne Infantry Regiment. In addition, the decision was made in the area dropping Ozerechni 4th Airborne Corps to reinforce the 1st Cavalry Corps, acting in online German rear.

But not enough transport aircraft, so the rear of the enemy was directed only one 8th Airborne Brigade – about 2,000 people. The landing of the second and third tier of the plan were to produce 70 fighters, but they really were allocated only 19 cars. The paratroopers jumped from the low-speed bomber TB-3, which were completely protected from fighter jets and air defense. Because of the strong anti-aircraft fire from the ground landing produced from a high altitude – 2000 meters. The result was that fifteen hundred paratroopers of the 8th Brigade were scattered over the area of more than a kilometer. Despite all the difficulties in the area of Vyazma was parachuted over 10,000 people who had in service 320 mortars, 541 machine gun and 300 anti-tank guns.


" That is why the new ATT begins with the stage of rune Hagalaz. Purification. Cleansing, washing away all that hinders further progress and further development. Purification through destruction. And it's not that the circumstances of the destruction of human euphoria deduce past successes and former welfare. So take this step – is to take effect rune Hagalaz too superficial. The main thing is not to destroy it. Destruction – not a goal but a method.

The main thing is that just a purification eliminates a person from, from which he can not get rid of. Another aspect is that this is PERSONAL purification. It's getting rid of accumulated errors. Naturally, this is a very painful process. It is not penance in a fit of emotional outburst.

This is Redemption. This clarification by the reckoning. The third aspect is that what is true, what is the essence, crystallize, and this truth can go further. And we need to be able to survive this cleansing. The person is tested for strength. And then to be a difficult and hard work. There are various difficulties and hardships. Stage runes Nauthiz. From the previous well-being and joyful existence is not a trace remains. And now we need to work hard, being in very harsh conditions. This is inevitable after the previous stage. Here is tempered nature of man. And then it's time to stop outside. Time rune Isa. But it's not a vacation, and no respite. This time the inner workings, and above all work on oneself.

A large part of Polish cavalry, which fell in the hole, went under the ice, and after a determined counterattack forces Bohun was destroyed almost the entire squad Lyantstskoryanskogo. When I heard about the heroic defense of Vinnitsa, Bogdan Khmelnitsky sent to the aid of two regiments of Bohun. After that, the demoralized remnants of the Polish-hlyahedskih troops retreated to the Bar, and then – to Kamenetz-Podolsk. But after the war of liberation Pravvoberezhe remained part of the Bourgeois Poland, and Vinnitsa, together with all Podillya soon fell under the power of the Turkish sultan.
