In Syria, a Russian officer was killed, causing a fire

193

An officer of the Russian special operations forces died while carrying out a combat mission in the Palmyra area, a representative of the Russian home base Khmeimim in Syria told Interfax on Thursday.


"In the area of ​​the settlement of Tadmor (Palmyra, Homs province), an officer of the Russian special operations forces was killed while performing a special task of targeting Russian aircraft against ISIS terrorists (a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation - IF)," the agency’s interlocutor said.

According to him, the officer carried out a combat mission in the Palmyra region for a week, he identified the most important targets of terrorists and gave out the exact coordinates for striking the Russian aviation.

"The soldier died heroically, causing a fire on himself after he was discovered by terrorists and surrounded," said a representative of the Hmeymim airbase.

The officer who died near Palmyra became the sixth Russian soldier on the list of Russian casualties in Syria during the operation in this Arab country.

24 November last year, a Turkish fighter shot down a Russian Su-24 bomber. His pilot Oleg Peshkov died. The marine, Alexander Pozynic, who participated in the operation to free the navigator of the downed aircraft, also died.

17 March, Russian President Vladimir Putin, in addition to O. Peshkov and A. Pozinich, named the names of two more Russian soldiers killed in Syria: Cheremisin and Zhuravlev.

Another soldier, Vadim Kostenko, committed suicide while serving in Syria in October last year.

The commander of the Russian grouping in Syria, Colonel-General Alexander Dvornikov, said in an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta last Thursday that the Russian Special Operations Forces are operating in Syria. According to him, these units perform additional reconnaissance of targets for strikes by Russian aviation, are engaged in aiming aircraft at targets in remote areas, and solve other special tasks.

Liberation of Palmyra

The operation to free Palmyra launched by the Syrian government army last week.

On Thursday, the site of the Russian Ministry of Defense reported that more than 320 terrorists were destroyed from 20 to 23 in March by airplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) in the Palmyra area.

"From 20 to 23 in March, the Russian HVA 41 carried out a sortie in the area of ​​the village of Palmyra, during which they attacked military targets of terrorists on 146," the report said.

The document notes that in the Palmyra region, Russian aviation destroyed more than 320 terrorists, six command posts, five tanks, six artillery mounts, two ammunition depots and 15 vehicles.

            But why not use the Syrians themselves on earth. plus Hezbollah Plus the IRGC and other Iranian units - there are plenty of them! Can't you teach? Air support already means a lot - Russia is "overfulfilling" its part of the work. In theory, Iran should take over everything on earth

      Eternal memory, man! He lived and died like a real officer. He knew what he was doing when he went to serve in the gro, he knew that tomorrow he could die far from home and it was not a fact that they would report it. The guys have such a job - to die for their country where we are not. request But it is precisely our safety that they provide, at the risk that no one will know about their feat. They just tell the family that they died during execution or even ns. For specialists, this is reality. No fanfare and reporting, monuments and newspaper articles. There was no. Without fanfare and speeches. So, it’s hard to imagine a greater feat. soldier Hero, no options.

      A respectable act of self-sacrifice. A brave fighter and left as befits a war - in battle. soldier



      But still there are questions to the command, where is the response plan anticipating such situations? Where is the emergency response team to rescue deep reconnaissance in critical situations (he did not work in the rear of a high-tech army with echeloned defense that did not allow an air rescue operation, but they flew after the downed pilots)? And why did he work alone? request

        Why is this medal here? .. This is not a state award, but a "public one", called "For courage and courage. Afghanistan." Recently, a great variety of such "awards" have developed, and it is not clear who and how controls the awards. And our hero is worthy, at least, of this award ... And for me, so is the "Hero of Russia".

They left before the start of operations, returned with bristles and a walkie-talkie to the hump. I remembered one - they called him a Bear. Novocaine drank glasses. I did not see, I did not believe.

        Airman Song
        Alexander Avdonin

        In the afghan hot earth
        Dust rises among the mountain peaks
        You are sitting with a machine gun in your hands on the armor,
        And further down the column of cars
        Compass, map and sleeping bag behind,
        All the gunner needs in battle is
        And again, I hear your call sign nearby
        You give the pilots your command.

        Chorus:
        Five, a snail square seven,
        There dushmans settled in the mountains.
        Come back in pairs of eights,
        Know that it is in good hands.

        Not enough water, and rations are not rich,
        And hebe sticks from sweat to his back
        You can’t escape the heat, here she’s fifty,
        That's the kind of work you got.
        We rarely meet for several days,
        But we ourselves live under the command "Rise",
        Where are our friends? - among the rocks, on the armor -
        Only their voices will we find on the air.

        Chorus

        The peaks of the mountain peaks ascended into the clouds,
        The compass needle to the north, calls to the house,
        Only your way to the south lies so far
        But you know that the beloved is waiting at home.
        Across the Afghan sun-burnt land
        After the battle, the column will return home,
        And I don’t want to think about this war,
        Only tomorrow the battle begins again.

        Chorus

        Everything will end, the thunder will cease to thunder,
        You will return to your native places near Moscow,
        But you never forget those guys
        That perished, walking that mountain trail ...

      The sad news, needless to say ... But I’ll take a chance, I’ll get a bunch of minuses, but the matter is more important, the cause for which the hero died .. Do you speak of a modern war ?! New army, new equipment, new methods of warfare ... Corrector of fire on enemy territory , this is in the presence of UAVs, reconnaissance aircraft, satellite reconnaissance, airships, probes, video cameras ....
      Here you are, words are not enough, a complete ... obzats. Modern army. One window dressing ... Nothing, stupid as in 41 ... We can do nothing, only heroes save ... And how much aplomb, what we are .. Does it mean in the old way to send a platoon of heroes to death to determine the coordinates of the target, then to hit this target in a new way with an ultra-modern caliber ?! And every bureaucrat on the table has a photograph of a hero with a black stripe and an inscription, so that he knows that he will answer for every stolen ruble, and let him just say: "I didn't send him there !!!"

        And ON PERFORMANCE always goes 1 person, if this is not a multi-pass operation.

      Forgive him all the sins of this life and do not punish hellish destruction.
      In your righteous judgment, have mercy on generous forgiveness.

      If the network does not lie, then the sixth Russian soldier killed in Syria is Sergey Vladimirovich Chupov, officer of the 46th Separate Operational Brigade of the Internal Troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, the military path of which began back in the DRA.
