“Tengri. A warrior. Killer. On the starting set of parameters, it should survive a nuclear war. It looks like a geranium uncle of an indeterminate age.” – wrote about the deceased Sergey Bondar from the “Harpoon” division of the Ministry of the Interior of Ukraine.
Who is “Tengri”, everyone is talking about him today, Ukrainians ask themselves on social networks. “I saw him in a picture with his face covered. Is this someone famous?” “Spies are never famous. It was from the Central Intelligence Agency. It was just that in these circles he was a legendary person and the most effective in the performance of combat tasks. Of course, only his most faithful close brothers and the leadership knew him.”
The Russian side announced that in the area of the special military operation, as the war against Ukraine is called in Moscow, the officer of the Special Operations Forces of Ukraine with the call sign Tengri, widely popular in the ranks of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, was destroyed.
