The bodies of the pilots of the Su-24M front-line bomber, who repeated the feat of Gastello near Bakhmut, were returned to their homeland

The bodies of the Wagner PMC pilots who died on December 2 near Bakhmut were returned to their homeland. Together with them, the negotiators managed to release the rector of the Lisichansk Cathedral, Archpriest Andrei Pavlenko, who spent eight months in Ukrainian captivity.


The bodies of pilots Alexander Antonov and Vladimir Nikishin returned to their homeland, repeating the feat of Gastello near Bakhmut in early December. The enemy returned the coffins with the bodies covered with Russian flags and the flags of PMC Wagner. According to the "musicians" TG channel, this was done thanks to the representatives of the "orchestra", who negotiated the return of the remains of the pilots.

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

- said the head of Wagner PMC Yevgeny Prigozhin.


As previously reported, on December 2, 2022, the crew of the Su-24M front-line bomber, consisting of commander Alexander Sergeevich Antonov and navigator Vladimir Nikishin Nikishin, flew to the Kleshcheevka area to perform a combat mission. At this time, the enemy made an attempt to break through with the use of armored vehicles, as a result of which there was a serious threat of the “musicians” losing the positions recaptured from the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

During the performance of a combat mission, the aircraft was shot down over enemy territory from MANPADS. Instead of ejecting, the Su-24M commander decided to attack a convoy of armored vehicles of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and crashed into it on a burning bomber. Thanks to the heroic actions of the crew of the Su-24M PMC Wagner, who repeated the feat of the pilot Nikolai Gastello, the attack of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was repulsed, the "musicians" held their positions.

      Given that the Ukrainians are doing with the prisoners, this was the only right decision, unfortunately.

        The flags, as I understand it, were after the transfer.
        Su-24 double .. I'm not here to emphasize the obvious. Just one could leave the plane. To another...
        They decided it together. Honor and memory.
        Antonov Alexander Sergeevich and Nikishin Vladimir Nikolaevich.
        Heroes of Russia.

          There is a newsreel of the 70s. According to the maritime custom, the Americans bury our submariners from a boat that sank near Hawaii. They raised the bow .. Under the Anthem of the USSR, covered with the Flag, the bodies were betrayed to the ocean

    The "musicians" have their own sizable "exchange fund", where there are many mercenaries from all over the world, so Prigozhin is well done, he does not abandon his own even after his death! Earth rest in peace TO THE HEROES who trampled down death with their death and saved hundreds of lives!

      there was a choice. Catapult and live. Let not for long, but live! The whole human essence screams at such a moment - LIVE! Those who were able to overcome it are real heroes!
      And not what you are hinting at here - "yes, they still had no choice" ....

      This is the CHOICE. And THEY chose, dying themselves, took the lives of the enemy.

      Death after captivity is not shameful. Of course, this does not apply to those who surrendered voluntarily.

    That's what it means to be able to talk properly with scoundrels.
    And the deserter was returned, and the bodies of the heroes under the flags.
    There are ways to convey concern in a way that is not Lavrovian or Peskovian.
    Atilla understood this when he demanded from Constantinople not only gigantic annual gold, but also the extradition of the close relatives of the king who swore allegiance to the Romans.
    No matter how much they were spinning, and no matter what they had been promised before, they had to give out where Attila disposed of them in such a way that I won’t even describe, the SBU is resting.

    who repeated the feat of Gastello near Bakhmut

    May your fire (your feat) unquenchable
    In every heart shines and lives
    For the happiness of the beloved homeland,
    For your pride, people!
