Russia has suffered massive losses in the war between Russia and Ukraine. His weapons and aircraft have not only been destroyed, he has also lost his best soldiers. One of those soldiers is 25-year-old Bato Basanov, a resident of Barotia, Russia. Bato Basanov was part of the team that broke the record last year in the Tank Biathlon War game. He made this record in front of Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Chief of the Army General Staff Valery Gerasimov. But this soldier who won in the war game was defeated and killed in the real war.
Barotia is the eastern part of Russia which is connected to Mongolia and is considered extremely poor. Basanov was honored last year for becoming the world champion in tank biathlon. Basanov, moving at a speed of 80 km, hit all his targets from the tank without fail. A local media report said that Bato Basanov’s death shows that winning in a tank biathlon and fighting in a real war are two different things.
soldiers of 19 countries were defeated
Last year, Russia’s T-72B3 team performed the best among soldiers from 19 countries, including China, in the tank biathlon. Basanov was part of this team and is currently seen with Gerasimov, Putit’s war charge. A Russian military expert blamed the Putin government for the poor modernization of tanks.
dead body reached home after seven weeks
Basanov was a gunner in the rifle brigade of the Russian Air Defense. It took seven weeks for Basanov’s body to reach his home. The death of successive Russian commanders in Ukraine is no less than a major setback for Putin. Putin has lost nine of his generals before Basanov’s death.
