Maksym was born in Novgorod. He was born on March the 4’th 1985. Maksym had a decent upbringing, however it was heavily influenced by his dad and older brother Vadim. He came from a relatively wealthy family therefore he had plenty of opportunities for the future. Despite of all this Maksym had a lot of troubles fitting into society. He tried many different jobs but always managed to fuck everything up. After some years of doing straight up nothing Maksym had no idea what to do…As expected his brother followed in his family’s footsteps…However Maksym chose not to and because of this he lost contact to his family overtime. His family meant a lot to Maksym but since he could not go out and “buy a new one” he decided that the military would be the best choice for the future, there he would be able find an alternative family for the future. After finishing the 2 years of mandatory military service he decided to enlist in the Airborne Troops. This was the first time he had “success” in his life, he proved to be efficient and therefore decided to stay. It came as a shock to Maksym…he never thought he would be able to fit in anywhere, because of his success in the military he decided to take it a step further and soon after he applied for the Vozdushno-desantnye voyska.
Soviet airborne troops are among the best-trained soldiers in the Russian armed forces. The training that they receive is physically rigorous and mentally demanding. It is conducted under conditions simulating actual combat, including extensive NBC training. Airborne training integrates special airborne techniques with basic motorized rifle tactics. During the six months of specialized training for the VDV, Maksym met with the rest company that he would serve with in Chechnya, Ukraine, and now South Zagoria. After finishing the specialized training to become a certified badass Maksym was awarded with the rank of Private Ryadovóy. Under the command of Major Vyacheslav Mikhailov, they served in the line of combat in Chechnya, Ukraine, and now South Zagoria. July 17th, Major Mikhailov briefed us all for our next mission in South Zagoria. Maksym had never quite experienced a mission like this one. It was going to be a new challenge for all the men in the 104th.
