In Afghanistan, the Russian pilot captured by the Taliban was released


The helicopter pilot Pavel Petrenko in April last year was forced to land the Mi-8 in the Afghan province of Logar due to an emergency situation. After landing on the ground, he was in the hands of the Taliban militants.

The Russian Foreign Ministry reports that all this time attempts have been made to return Pavel Petrenko to his homeland. On what conditions such a return has become possible today, - not reported.

In the helicopter Mi-8, which made an emergency landing in the province of Logar, there were also 9 people: citizens of Afghanistan, Turkey and Kyrgyzstan. They were also held captive by the Taliban. While their fate is no data.

    It is necessary to make sure that they would simply be afraid to touch a Russian person, realizing that if you take a Russian hostage, you automatically sign yourself a death sentence

      It is good to...
      But here, in my opinion, they gave money or something else.
      Otherwise, why for a year and a half "attempts were made to return Pavel Petrenko to his homeland" does not sound like the fear of the Taliban.

      For this to happen, our MTR must carry out several successful frightening operations soldier

      And it would be better if they were not afraid, but upon hearing "I am Russian", they would immediately set the table. smile fellow

      You can still negotiate with the Taliban, they are angels against the background of ISIS, and they are independent and have not been 100% funded by the CIA or the Gulf countries for a long time

      The old Afghan warriors with whom we fought treat the Russians with respect, probably, and this played an important role in releasing the pilot.

      Thank God that our citizen has been released, I am personally in favor with both hands so that terrorists are afraid to seize our citizens, but for this we need to have more aggressive special services.

      Especially this idea needs to be conveyed to the Yankees. And then they generally go crazy - they grab Our citizens, take them to their place and judge them as they want. And our Foreign Ministry only scribbles "notes". They took a couple, another 3,14ndos, sued in response - next time they will think hard about whether to grab Our citizens or not.

      Therefore, we must first remove the priority of international laws over Russian ones (see Article 15 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation). Remove this item.ituation article!

    Maybe this is in gratitude for the supply of our helicopters? In any case, it is a joy for the family, loved ones. Welcome back! Health and happiness!!!

    This is good, but I thought that only Ukrainians fly in Afghanistan by agreement with SUSHIA

    It doesn’t matter how he was mastered - the main thing is that they did not forget about him and did everything so that he returned home ... by the way, nothing is said about citizens of other countries ...

    And it seems to me that ours exchanged him for some important "inmate" in the Russian "bins" ...

    And thank God that at least we began to remember our own people. In general, for every Russian captured and held captive, a hundred heads have to be turned off so that they are afraid, as my first ship commander said: "They are afraid, then they respect."

    Released from our captivity is always a joy. This apparently was preceded by negotiations on the redemption or exchange for a very close person of the field commander who captured our prisoner. Other options from the souls will not crawl

    about the 7th minute when the hail shoots in the opposite direction, a dark object sweeps

      Yes. True 7.30 - 7.33. Goes through the clouds. It doesn’t look like a plane.

    I do not care how and under what conditions our OTHER compatriot was released.
    He is free and will be home soon. This is the main thing.

    The man was lucky, because most of the "civilized" countries do not care for the hostages.

    It is necessary that they would not be afraid of a Russian person. But respect ... learn to appreciate the right things. Fear begets anger, respect begets kindness ...
