Oleg’s grandfather, Konstantin Arkhipovich Lukashevich, ended the Great Patriotic War as a senior lieutenant. Among the relatives, two uncles are senior lieutenants, three are lieutenant colonels, one is a colonel, and the second grandfather is a major general.
In 1989, Oleg graduated from the North Yenisei Secondary School No. 1 named after E. S. Belinsky. After school, he applied to the Far Eastern Military Combined Arms Command School ( Blagoveshchensk ). After graduating from college in 1993, he was sent to military unit 54262.
From January to August 1996, Oleg Tibekin took part in the hostilities in the Chechen Republic as part of the 166th separate motorized rifle brigade (Tver). For his courage, he was awarded the medal "For Courage".

Captain Tibekin died on December 16, 1999 on the battlefield during an assault on a height of 398.3 in the Oktyabrsky district of the city of Grozny.
When storming the heights of Tibekin’s company, as well as 1 platoon of 1 motorized rifle company, under the command of Lieutenant Plotnikov, the militants were ambushed. The commander took out two wounded guys from the battle, and when he returned, he ordered a change of position. As an experienced captain, in this situation, he decided to stay and cover the retreat of the soldiers with fire. He shot back to the last, until the militants climbed to a height and shot him point-blank. In the same battle killed more than 10 Russian soldiers and officers. BMP-2 commander 1 MCP Lieutenant Plotnikov was captured by militants along with the gunner and driven away to Grozny. On December 17, 1999, the height was occupied by units of 752 SMEs.

Defending the Motherland from the Nazi invaders in the forties, celebrating the nationwide Victory, I could not have thought that in fifty-four years, in peacetime, such grief would come: the loss of the first grandson on the battlefield ... The fact that he became the Hero of Russia is not a consolation . But I myself helped him grow up as an officer, a man of honor and heroism! And I, an old eighty-year-old soldier of the Great Patriotic War, bow my head gray over the grave of my grandson - forever remaining young, twenty-seven ...
Konstantin Arkhipovich Lukashevich, Oleg’s grandfather 
The street and school in the village of Severo-Yeniseisk are named after Tibekin. The same school was graduated in 1942 by the Hero of the Soviet Union Yefim Semyonovich Belinsky . It so happened that both graduates of this school died, saving their soldiers on the same day - December 16, only with a difference of 55 years.
