Сегодня родился Руднев Всеволод Фёдорович
On August 31, 1855 Rudnev Vsevolod Fyodorovich was born. This is the commander of the well-known cruiser "Varangian", the hero of Russian-Japanese war, the rear admiral (1905) of Russian Imperial Fleet. Under Rudnev's command the crew of the cruiser "Varangian" accepted unequal battle at Chemulpo in Korea. In 1907 Rudnev was awarded the Japanese order of the Rising sun — in acknowledgement of heroism of the Russian seamen, having become one of the first Russians (and in general Europeans) who received this award. Two known songs are devoted to a feat of seamen of "Varangian": "Our proud "Varangian" doesn't give up to the enemy" and "Cold waves Splash ".
