The collapse of the Soviet Union on Christmas 1991, this once-mighty republic collapsed overnight. As a member of the Soviet Union, Russia’s situation became very difficult after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Not only has the economy fallen into crisis many times, but its domestic separatist forces have also become more aggressive. For example, the Chechen Republic, located in the northern Caucasus Mountains, relies on the rugged terrain to resist Russia and advocate independence from Russia.
The first Chechen war broke out on December 11, 1994. Although Russia had the advantage, the Soviet Union had just disintegrated, the army was chaotic, and the economy was difficult. Chechen relied on the terrain that was easy to defend and difficult to attack, and its high morale fought hard with Russia for 2 years. The war killed more than 100,000 people, the city was ruined by shells, and Russia’s economy was deteriorating. Finally, Russia had no choice but to sign a truce.
How can Russians easily defeat? Three years later, the Second Chechen War broke out again. Putin was determined to win Chechnya at all costs. Although the battle was very hard, he finally won. The story we are telling today is the story of a Russian special soldier and a Chinese reporter during the Second Chechen War. The reporter’s name is Lu Yuguang, and he was the chief correspondent of Phoenix TV in Russia.
Speaking of our hero today, he was also a member of the Chinese Navy soldier. While in the army, his writing was very good. He was promoted to the Department of Information and has since become associated with the profession of journalist. Lu Yuguang retired from the army in 1987 and returned to Hangzhou to work as a reporter.
It didn’t take long for Lu Yuguang to emerge in the news media industry. However, he was not willing to settle for the status quo. In order to pursue higher honors, Lu Yuguang went to Moscow to start the Chinese Daily and started his own entrepreneurial path. During this time, he also had the honor of becoming a war correspondent. This is a very dangerous profession, and it is necessary to follow the troops to enter the front line. The situation is dangerous. However, Lu Yuguang has experience in the army and this job is very suitable for him.
Lu Yuguang was invited by the Russian military to follow the Russian The army entered Chechnya. The special forces mentioned in our title were ordered to protect the reporters in the field. According to Lu Yuguang’s recall, the vehicle he was riding in was in a critical condition, and the Russian special soldier immediately flung on Lu Yuguang to block stray bullets and explosions. Lu Yuguang was only slightly injured in the end, but the Russian special soldier was severely sacrificed. Before his death, he held Lu Yuguang’s hand and hoped that he could take care of his wife and children.
Lu Yuguang has fulfilled his promise. After the war, he found his life-saving benefactor’s wife. Lu Yuguang couldn’t help crying when he saw the one-year-old son of the special forces. Under long-term contact and care, Lu Yuguang and the special soldier’s widow had an affection, and broke through many obstacles to marry the Russian woman, raised the special soldier’s son as his own child, fulfilled his commitment, and took care of the mother and son . Later he also had a daughter with his Russian wife, and the family was happy. However, due to background and cultural differences, the Russian wife became alcoholic, and the two finally broke up peacefully.
Although the two parties cannot be married, they are still friends. The special soldier’s son also followed Lu Yuguang to live in China, and later graduated from Harbin University. He spoke fluent Chinese. His daughter later studied at Yunnan University. During this period, Lu Yuguang regularly paid for early living expenses, and he never remarried after divorce.
Lu Yuguang fulfilled his promise and took care of his wife and children responsibility. With such a father as an example, his son and daughter also hope to become journalists in the future. Even though he and his Russian wife failed to reach the end, the story of”death and loneliness” is still very touching. The light of humanity is everywhere and it also shows the long-lasting friendship between China and Russia.
