This monologue at the beginning of our conversation about the tragedy of Soviet military Duga system with Yuri Vsevolodovich Votintsev-tion was recorded in my work notebook. And then I, according to the nature of the records in the working notebook, asked Colonel-General resolution and turned on the recorder. Obviously, we talked more than an hour. Recording our conversation printed in twenty-two pages. Next it will be shown in full. However, in my old notebook after the first long monologue Votintseva there are still quite interesting notes concerning himself Vsevolodovich. Probably, before turning on the recorder, I asked a few questions, so to speak, on his visit. For a journalist it would be an unforgivable mistake to go to visit the legendary in the army air defense missile commander, PKO, EWS General Votintseva not ask about some details of his unique life. And now, after 18 years in 2007, I read this my old records and understand what they really show what it was a man, so to speak, he was cut from a dough. And most importantly if he could deal with voluntarism as the newspaper "Soviet Russia" in 1990, when a decision to establish a combat Duga system and the allocation of this case huge folk remedies. Now this legendary commander did not ask. Our world Yuri Vsevolodovich Votintsev left in 2005. I think readers will be interested to know how was a man of the first in the history of our country and the Armed Forces Commander of the missile and protivokosmiche-tion of Defense Air Defense Forces.
