Monument to Hero of Russia Roman Filipov unveiled at Khmeimim airbase

A monument to Russian pilot Roman Filipov, who died in a battle with terrorists in the Syrian province of Idlib, was unveiled at the Russian Khmeimim airbase in Syria.


The bust of the pilot was installed next to the bust of the helicopter pilot Ryafagat Khabibulin, who died during the liberation of Palmyra from militants in 2016. On the monument, in addition to the data of Major Roman Filipov, his last words are placed on the side: "This is for you guys!"

Today we pay tribute to the memory of all who fought on Syrian soil against international terrorism, all who did not return to their homeland and died, thereby fulfilling their duty to the end. Among them is our pilot, hero Major Filipov Roman Nikolaevich. He devoted his life to a noble cause, to protect our Motherland.

- said at the opening ceremony the commander of the Russian group in Syria, Lieutenant General Alexander Chaiko.

The Su-25 attack plane under the command of Major Roman Filipov was hit by 3 February 2018 of the year over Syrian Idlib. The pilot managed to eject, but after landing he was surrounded by terrorists and died, having blown up a grenade of himself and several militants. By decree of the President of Russia Roman Filipov posthumously awarded the title Hero of Russia. A special distinction "Golden Star" was presented to the relatives of the deceased pilot in the Kremlin. The streets in Voronezh and Borisoglebsk are named after Roman Filipov; in addition, SU-25 and Sukhoi Superjet 100 are named after the hero.

      Blessed memory of the Hero

      Heroes must educate heroes in schools, in Russia. The first year - saluting and three steps to the frontline soldiers, then they will forget to change the flowers - they will wither ... In 50 years some kind of circumcised will come and turn up in Yiddish - an occupier. It only remains to express deep regret. Personally, I am against it - the best memory for the enemy, this is a funnel from a nuclear bomb, and a friend or mother is better off a bust within walking distance - and cry and a glass of drink, and go home by taxi, not by tank or plane.

        There is a great deal of truth in your words. And the insult is read. And regret.
        Eh. This is a topic for a separate discussion.
        And a monument on that land is a duty to such a Hero.
        Let's not darken the Hero's bright memory.

          debt to such a Hero.

          The duty to the hero is a mother with a pension, a wife with an apartment, a son in a flying school, flowers on the grave, a plaque of honor on the wall of the house and at the school where he studied, pioneers at a meeting on February 23, a puny in the yard who does not want to play for the Nazis and - tra-ta-ta "for the boys" from the stick! Will leave Syria sooner or later, what will remain? Only anger at the barmaley?

          It is better to erect such monuments in the homeland. Few monuments to our heroes abroad have been destroyed and desecrated? Nobody can be sure who will be the master of the future in Syria.

            Then I'll explain to you. Not like the federal media with noodles about terrorism, but as it is. The Russian Federation in Syria has no real interests, either economic or political. And there are exorbitant ambitions and a desire to show that someone else is considered with the current Russian government and that there is supposedly still international influence and respect. All this is mainly calculated for domestic consumption, because the real international position of the Russian Federation is far from brilliant. As you can see, internal consumption in your face, for example, is ready to believe the bullshit of those in power. By and large, the logistics base was also more likely in the past, when there was an ocean-going navy, and not a pitiful excuse, as it is now. Do not agree, explain your vision, only without loud phrases. And I will say it again, it will not work. So what about the pharmacy and God rather refers to you.

      Sergei, this is called "sculpting a hunchback." You are either too young or provocative. All terrorist attacks and those who died from them, committed in Russia, are in open sources.

      The number of victims of terrorist attacks in Russia since 1994. Orange shows the number of victims of terrorist attacks for a specific year, blue - the total number of victims ...

    Bright memory!
    I admire the courage of Roman Nikolaevich, I remember our other military men who fought valiantly in Syria. Alexander Alexandrovich Prokhorenko, who caused fire on himself, and others.
    Very conflicting feelings. On the one hand - pride that you are a citizen of Russia, like them. On the other hand, the awareness of their own smallness in front of the greatness of their feat.
    There are people among us whose example it is worth teaching our own children. There is still.
    With admiration and deepest respect

      This is Sasha Prokhorenko. Killed while preparing the assault and liberation of the Syrian city of Palmyra.


      Monuments to him have been installed:

      in Orenburg


      Streets in Orenburg, Grozny and in the Italian city of Vali Sotto are named after Alexander Prokhorenko. In the small homeland of Alexander, in the village of Gorodki, Tyulgansky District, a museum of military glory has been created. The name of the hero was given to the Gorodets school where he studied.

            Hi beauty love
            God has dressed them up to live in the most beautiful places and the measures of this small town are trying to make it attractive to tourists: the Park of Honor and Infamy is one of the elements of all this. Alexander is on the side of Honor; on the side of Infamy, the "captain" of the Costa Concordia, who abandoned his sinking ship; on neutral territory sculptures of GDP and our Trumpet - they will be determined based on the results wink Beautiful place
