The author, being a military pilot, often hears the question - what motivates Russian aces to participate in military operations, and what are they fighting for in Syria? Moreover, each pilot has his own reasons: someone does it for the sake of money, someone for the sake of possible rewards or a crust of a war veteran. Many are sent to Syria out of anger towards terrorists slaughtering civilians.
The author himself decided to go to Syria for several other reasons.
Imagine: you studied at a military school for 5 years. Learned to fight, kill and destroy. Then, for about 10 years, they honed their skills in numerous exercises and trainings. The country has invested in you a lot of money, time and knowledge. And suddenly there is a real opportunity to test yourself, put into practice everything that you have been taught over the years,

At the same time, when your comrade dies, a new motivation is added immediately to continue this business, and it instantly blocks all other reasons.
"This is for you guys!" - it is eternal. This alone is enough
- summarizes the author.
