Prigozhin announced the return of the bodies of the heroically dead pilots of the Su-24 PMC "Wagner" to Russia

The head of the Wagner PMC, Yevgeny Prigozhin, announced the return to Russia of the bodies of two Su-24 pilots who died heroically in early December in the Bakhmut area. The businessman personally met the plane with the bodies of military personnel.

We brought our comrades in arms, returned them home with dignity and respect. The whole country respects them, we respect them, the enemy respects them. Now they are with us again. It is important

Prigogine emphasized.

The head of a private military company also noted that a lot of work had been done to return the bodies of soldiers in order to bury them with honors in their homeland.

On December 2, near Bakhmut, the crew of the Su-24M bomber, consisting of commander Alexander Antonov and navigator Vladimir Nikishin, received the task of hitting the armored column of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. However, during the approach to the attack, the aircraft was forced to proceed into the airspace of the Ukrainian side. When turning and entering the course, the bomber was hit by an enemy MANPADS.

The crew decided to send the burning aircraft to the Ukrainian tanks. Su-24M crashed into the thick of an enemy armored column equipment, thus repeating the feat of Nikolai Gastello (his crew attacked German tanks on June 26, 1941). As a result of the actions of the pilots, PMC "Wagner" was able to hold its ground and successfully repel the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

    It seems to me at times that soldiers,
    From the bloody fields that have not come,
    Not once we fell into our land once,
    And they turned into white cranes.

    Everlasting memory.

    before the current war, Prigozhin was known to me by the fact that he was suing one talker, with another
    and led a certain PMC in Syria, Africa
    did not expect to see and hear a real soldier who did not play around in answering questions on pressing issues from journalists and other people
    these are often called real men
    it's amazing how war exposes people
    one dressed in a Western uniform with NATO weapons to advertise himself beloved
    and Prigozhin fights and fulfills his duty both to his homeland and to his soldiers
    thank you and your soldiers, our guys, for heroism

    If a bomber crashed into a column of armored vehicles, then what is there to return then? It seems only the memory of the dead.
