Here and Now
Denis Chernyakov - a fourth-generation military officer
Denis Chernyakov is a fourth-generation military officer. His great-grandfather served in both the Winter and the Second World Wars, his grandfather was a fighter pilot, and his father fought in Afghanistan. Upholding this legacy, Denis got the rank of a Lieutenant-Colonel and has earned two awards during the Special Military Operation. He spoke about the ways he successfully accomplished the commander's tasks and overcame fear in the most challenging front-line moments. In a new episode of 'Here and Now,' Denis sheds light on his military career choice and the critical factors that enable the success of a mission in high-risk zones.
