“This is for you guys!”: In Syria, found the place of death of Roman Filipov

February 3, 2018 Russia and the world were shocked news from Syria. Terrorists shot down the attack aircraft VKS Su-25SM. Russian military pilot, Guard Major Roman Filipov was able to catapult, but landed in territory controlled by enemy forces. Waging an unequal battle with the enemy on the ground, he blew himself up with a grenade with the words “This is for you guys!”, Not wanting to be captured by thugs.

These words will forever remain in the heads and hearts of Russian people, personifying an example of unshakable courage and officer honor. Roman Filipov was awarded the title of Hero of Russia, posthumously.

A heroic event occurred near the city of Serakib. The village for a long time remained under the control of the militants. And only recently was the Syrian army repulsed.

Then the fighters of the Russian grouping of forces in Syria, as well as the journalists of the Russian television channels, set out to find the place of death of Roman Filipov. Among them was the VGTRK film crew led by Evgeny Poddubny. Together, the goal was achieved.

We hope that someday the place of the heroic death of the Russian officer Filipov will be marked by a monument, as a symbol of Russia's struggle against international terrorism.

    "This is for you guys!"

    - I say these words in almost every comment about Syria and try to convey. In the war, soldiers whose honor and conscience are not empty words, revenge for the death of their comrades !!!! Moreover, for such a murder. And do not conclude a truce with the enemy!

    Live by the logic of the earth, strive for the divine
    the logic of the earth is like a kettlebell pulling down.
    Here everything is different, everything is wrong, here people are not in paradise.
    We are on Earth, we learn, we protect our life.
    If you are shot with a steel bullet, do not bear it,
    and fight back with a combat grenade.
    Don’t kill - it’s later, on another planet,
    and on Earth - fire with water and peace with war,
    but we are responsible for the world!
    This is earthly logic, dear to us in spirit.
    Honor your father and mother - the commandment of Jesus,
    but if the life of children is suffering on the path of life,
    respect from children do not wait.
    Get glory for yourself not by shouting, but by deeds.
    Be with the people, as in the trenches, at the forefront.
    This logic is earthly in spirit to us dear.
    The logic of the universe and the logic of the earth,
    this is our life - such a short one!

    Priorities are changing. "For the boys", "Work, brothers". hi And how many of those that we did not hear at the last moment of their feat? These are the last words of modern heroes. Do not get me wrong. But what about the homeland !? I do not speak for Stalin, and especially Putin. What happened to us, that at the last moment they do not remember the homeland? Think at your leisure. And there is no reason for enemies to look in my comments.

      For what Motherland, for Syria, or what? Syria is not yet our homeland. Then the war was in our country, then they shouted for the Motherland, it would be strange to fight in a foreign land and shout "For the Motherland!"

    If you leave Syria to be torn apart by an under-hegemon, you will soon be sitting in a trench near Ryazan and yelling for your homeland, do you want this?

    A hero? Well .... Well, there are double standards in Russia ... Calling Heroes those who went to a foreign country for money to kill ... You equate mercenaries (contract soldiers of the Russian Federation) with WWII veterans, is it? ...

    The guys are dying, defending the interests of Russia at distant frontiers, yes, they are military and they are doing their job, it’s normal, it’s not normal for another - where do so many Vlasovites come from in Russia and they bark in unison with the Ukrainian bandera, pouring mud on the memory of the victims.
