Realizing the importance of the telegram, it was no longer the young sergeant major rushing to the duty officer's headquarters. Captain Beketov, who was on duty that night at the division headquarters, collapsed in surprise as he read the text of the telegram. Literally an hour ago, he was reported by Cossack explorers who are red at Bulavino…."
