The same retiree, as stated, at last year’s parade in honor of the 70th anniversary of the great Victory was on the guest platform in military uniform. Photographers who worked in red square, Marshal was represented by Sergei Krupko. According to “Russian newspaper”, he refused to comment, citing the fact that his 99-year-old father, who sat there in a tank helmet, Georgy grits, no matter feels.

However, later Krupko gave an interview to “Moskovsky Komsomolets” (newspaper reported that Krupko lived in Texas, not in Krasnogorsk). In it, he admitted that the invitation to the Victory parade got under the Protocol, Dmitry Medvedev. “I served in the KGB, was an adviser to Andropov. And my uncle, Alexander Sinko Counsellor of Stalin,” he said.

With regard to the military forms, the veteran called her their “ceremonial uniform”. Krupko assured that Andropov gave him secret military title of “Marshal of the KGB”. However, in the history of the Armed forces and other security agencies of the country are no hidden or secret marshals of the Soviet Union was not there.

“Such titles are no more. This Andropov personally gave it. Such titles no longer was and never will be”, – Krupko said, adding that he’s “so unique”, “was in the inner circle Andropov, was his favorite”.

The title of Marshal of the Soviet Union since 1935, is awarded only 41 times. For the first time – people’s Commissar of defense Kliment Voroshilov, and for the last time Dmitry Yazov in 1990. The only living Marshal of the Soviet Union remains Yazov, everybody knows him in the face.

And lieutenan missed somewhere on the distant approaches”.

“What is it Marshall?! Of course, fake. Missed, because the young one, experienced guys there is no. The quality of teaching. Just blew. Even with the omission of the person should check at least three or four times. It was missing laymen who do not understand the titles. At first, the police checks then FSO. But overlooked and those and others”, – said Alexander Korzhakov, the newspaper LOOK, it is possible that when lieutenan in the Marshal jacket took the podium, he saluted.

Korzhakov recalled that before the appropriate office of the KGB, involved in the protection of the first persons, the maximum was four or five generals, “and now they are in their seventies already, and the tasks are the same”.

Cases where fraudsters use military uniforms and forged documents and posing as veterans to obtain social benefits, occur regularly. In mid-June in Nizhny Novgorod has started consideration of criminal case concerning 46-the summer local resident, who under the guise of veteran power structures promised friends to get out of military parts products at low price, but after receiving more than 150 thousand roubles, have disappeared.

While in the home for more than 30 years was considered a hero, participated in the parade on may 9, he even wanted to erect a monument in his native village of Mamontovka.

Maslov commanded the German punitive detachment “Mitte”, rising to Lieutenant. But after the war was somehow reincarnated as a veteran of the red army order of Glory on his chest.
