Today the financial and economic service of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation celebrates its professional holiday.

Employees of the Representative Office of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation (for organizing and conducting military memorial work abroad) in the Slovak Republic prepared a publication about one of the military financiers – Hero of the Soviet Union Alexei Semenovich Yegorov, commander of the 1st Stalin Partisan Brigade, an active participant in the Slovak National Uprising …

After graduating in 1942 in Tashkent from the financial faculty of the Intendant Academy of the Red Army named after I. V.M. Molotova was sent for military service to the Headquarters of the Partisan Movement. But he did not serve as a quartermaster for long. Having mastered mine explosives, he became a professional demolition instructor. Trained over 300 saboteur miners.

In July 1944, Aleksey Yegorov, at the head of a group of Soviet intelligence officers, arrived in Slovakia with the aim of organizing a partisan movement. In a short time, the reconnaissance group, consisting of twenty-two servicemen, turned into a well-trained combat partisan formation of more than three thousand people.

The First Stalin Partisan Brigade under the command of Alexei Semenovich Yegorov took an active part in the fight against the German fascist invaders, provided invaluable assistance to the Slovak national uprising to liberate the territory of Slovakia from fascist occupation.

In the post-war period A.S. Egorov came to Slovakia many times, visited places of hostilities, met with his Slovak friends.

In 1969, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Slovak National Uprising in Czechoslovakia, a badge – “Yegorov’s Star” was instituted in memory of the merits of the military financier, the legendary commander of the partisan unit Alexei Semenovich Yegorov.

Alexey Semenovich died on April 15, 1970.

In Yaroslavl, a bust of the hero is installed on the only Monument-memorial to military financiers in Russia.
