The monument to Russian officer Alexander Prokhorenko, who died heroically in Syria, will be inaugurated in Orenburg on November 4. The delegation of the National Parachutists Federation of Italy will take part in the memorable ceremony. In August of this year, a monument to Alexander Prokhorenko was opened in the Italian city of Vali Sotto. Marble sculpture depicts an officer leaning on a boulder, in full combat gear. In honor of him it is planned to name the street in the Italian city of Varese, according to the Department of Information and Mass Communications of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation


Monument to officer Alexander Prokhorenko will be opened in Orenburg


According to the portal "Ural56.ru", in Orenburg on Novaya Street on the square near the Orenburg Stadium, preparations are underway for the installation of a monument to Alexander Prokhorenko. The monument to the Hero of Russia was brought from Chelyabinsk. Workers at the site said that its height was 4,7 meters, and together with the pedestal it was about 10 meters.

The monument is cast in bronze. Alexander Prokhorenko is depicted in full growth, while his left hand rests on a broken column - this is a reference to the fact that he died while preparing the assault and the liberation of the Syrian city of Palmyra.

Alexander Prokhorenko died while performing a combat task of hitting Russian aircraft on the militants of the "Islamic State" in the Syrian Palmyra area. Once surrounded, the 25-year-old officer summoned fire on himself. For this act he was posthumously conferred the title of Hero of Russia, the name of the officer was forever listed in the Smolensk Military Academy military troop defense.

      Yesterday I asked my wife about Prokhorenko! She does not know him !!! Then he called friends, too. In Russia, only a few know about it! Although they show on the news. In Italy, a monument was erected to him, And ours do not know their heroes ... It is regrettable!

        capitalism is now in the country. nothing is done for the idea.
        the majority goes to the security forces because of the opportunity to make good money and get social guarantees.
        Yesterday I rode in a minibus and sat next to two double bass marines.
        I was shocked by their conversation.
        judging by the speech, education is so-so.
        they are proud that their father thrashed them and cut them on their bald head until they were 18 years old. a guy with a loose haircut was sitting nearby, so they began to discuss among themselves in the style of stupid bydlyatsky gopnik.
        all who are smarter - lousy intelligentsia.
        and the purpose of their coming to the service:
        “Cut down the dough, get a hut by the sea and dump out of their villages”

        ps and most normal people do not watch TV.

          Well, then check on the Internet ...

            but you can’t immediately read various opinions online.
            in any country, TV is the basis of propaganda. Russia is no exception.

          The guy, when he did the haircut, had to anticipate the reaction to it from normal men.

            the guy is civil. what then would he go bald?
            the haircut was ordinary, without fanaticism.
            Is a normal man determined by a shaved head, and not by brains and actions?

        ... this is an awareness issue. In the Union, information was brought up without options - do you need it or not. The party said: "Contact!" The people answered: "There is contact!".
        And now? Half of the individuals believe that the information is “correct” nowhere except on the Internet. On the principle - we do not look zomboyaschik - they lie there. The maximum of digestible content from the TV is a “medical club” and some kind of “battle” thread. But on the Internet, the maximum is not great - OK, VK, FB, Twitter with cats. So fffsёёё - arrived ....
        I solved the problem in a different way - every day in the evening, at 20:00, in a licking order, political information on Russia 1. Point. Previously, he fought with home - now settled down. In the end, 30-40 minutes a day, for understanding the world, is not a great loss of time to the detriment of cats.

              I feel sorry for your family when you retire.
              when do you lose the opportunity to think, rather than stupidly perform, in school?

                And do not feel sorry for my family. Not worth it. How naive is it to take everything at face value? I am not a despot-political officer, if you are talking about this. Children do not stand at attention in front of the drawer, for the simple reason that they have their own TV and they are eight and three years old. But I always recapture my 40 minutes even from Fixikov with Masha and the Bears, because I want to know when to pickle kebabs, and when to sharpen the saber.
                And believe me, news sometimes slip through the mailbox even earlier than on this site. But digging the Internet in search of ephemeral truth - alas, unlike you, there is not enough time.
                And besides .... And what is NOT propaganda for you? Well, I don’t find a big difference between the information received on TV and here, for example.

        This is an officer who, when the group left the position, the group leader forgot, and when they remembered it was too late, the guy could only heroically die where he was abandoned.

    In the village of Gorodki, Orenburg Region, to the homeland of the Hero of Russia Alexander Prokhorenko, who died in Syria, members of the Roman National Association of Italian paratroopers arrived.
    The Italian delegation met with parents and teachers of Prokhorenko at the school where he studied.
    The sign of the training course of the school of paratroopers, named in his honor, with the inscription: “In memory of the hero of Russia, senior lieutenant Prokhorenko,” was also given to the parents of the serviceman from the Roman paratroopers.

      Rather, prevent them from appearing.
      The situation in which the PAN alone is forced to shoot back from the crowd of baboons, to put it mildly, is wrong.
      He was forced to commit his heroic deed because of the incompetence of his fathers-commanders. Moreover, with a probability close to unity, they evaded responsibility

    Well, at least so ... although 5 months ago I raised the question of raising money for the monument to A. Prokhorenko here on the forum and asked the site administration to support this proposal. The VO administration supported verbally, while the article that they wrote on this topic was not published for a long time, and after that they were deleted altogether, explaining that in addition to money, a place for the monument must be sought, negotiated with the mayor's office, etc. ... generally glad, at least someone and found the money and agreed with the city hall. And the VO site has remained just a site where there is only talk and discussion about the meaning of life with constant cries of cheers.

    It's time to be.
    This monument will be not only a memory of the sacrifice of art. Lt. Prokhorenko, and a symbolic monument to all of our own who died in Syria. Something suggests that people will go to him.
