Russian, Syrian Forces Honor War Hero Roman Filipov With Monument Near Saraqib (Video)

Donate

Russian and Syrian forces have placed on May 16 a plaque honoring Russian war hero Roman Nikolayevich Filipov on the stone that witnessed his last stand.

More than two years ago, Filipov fought his last battle with terrorists attempting to capture him near the stone, which is located in the vicinity of Saraqib city in the southern part of Greater Idlib.

“In here, Russian martyr, hero Maj. Roman Filipov fought his last battle on February 3 of 2018, you will remain in our memory for ever,” the plaque reads.

Maj. Filipov, 33, was flying his Su-25 accompanied by another Su-25 on a routine patrol over Idlib. When he dived down to engage a hostile target on the ground, his warplane was hit with what is presumed to be a man-portable air-defense system (MANPADs).

After ejecting, Filiopv landed near the city of Saraqib, where he found himself surrounded by terrorists. Filiopv blew himself up with a hand grenade after engaging in a fierce battle with the terrorists that attempted to capture him. Several terrorists were reportedly killed or injured in the battle.

Al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), which controls Greater Idlib, claimed responsibility for the shooting down of Maj. Filipov’s Su-25.

The Russian military responded by launching several cruise missiles at terrorists’ positions in Idlib. At least 30 were eliminated. Fearing a harsher response by Russia, the terrorists handed over Filiopv body on February 6.

Filiopv was posthumously awarded the honor of the Hero of the Russian Federation. He was buried with with full military honors on February 8 at the Alley of Glory of the Kominternovskoye Cemetery in Voronezh with thousands of people attending the related ceremonies.

The Syrian Arab Army backed with the Russian Aerospace Forces liberated Saraqib  city in March of 20 following a fierce battle with the terrorists and Turkish forces.

    Send a video of this ceremony, to the US pilots who were safely tucked away in the Hanoi Hilton.

    That’s what real soldiers do, fight terrorists.
    US pilots bomb women and children, then go home for a good cry about the atrocities they committed.

      US now has reached a new bottom feeder level of cowardice and kills people by remote controlled drones from Nevada. Over 14,722 civilians, mostly women and children have been killed since 2010 by US drones from Afghanistan-Pakistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Yemen to Syria.

      Still very much in fashion in Fascist USA thanking war criminals:
      – Thank You for your service!
      Especially if the Cutthroat US Roach served in the US Mafia Army Touring the Middle-East!
      – USA USA USA!!
      Idiots chanting like this should experience the FUKUS bombings on their homes.

    Горит на склоне сбитый 25-й,
    Осколок Родины среди сирийских скал.
    Три магазина, АПС, граната —
    И это весь мой грозный арсенал.
    Очередями лупят, не прицельно,
    Патронов, видимо, им некуда девать,
    Но невдомёк врагам, что офицера
    Живого в плен они не смогут взять.
    Я огрызаюсь выстрелом и матом,
    Такая тактика, минутный перекур.
    Уже готова на подрыв граната —
    Успеть бы только выдернуть чеку.
    Обидно, да… греха таить не буду,
    Хотелось многое ещё бы совершить,
    Но здесь сейчас, за каменистой грудой,
    Я знаю точно, братья, будем жить!
    Мелькает ближе свора бородатых,
    Нюх потерявшие, споткнутся невзначай.
    Вот и настал черёд моей гранаты…
    Обратно в небо… Родина, прощай!

    As soon as the United (terrorist states) of America succeed in putting a puppet in power in Syria (we know they will never stop until they do) then they will destroy this site just for grand standing. The solution is to make sure they never succeed.

    God bless him, a true hero. An example of heroism in the face of death.
