The detachments of the defense of the Kurdish people, at the request of the government of the Russian Federation, managed to get the body of a Russian soldier killed at Tadmor (Palmyra).
The report says that the Kurds received the body of a deceased Russian officer after long attempts to reach an agreement with ISIS militants. A representative of the Kurdish self-defense detachment said that the negotiations were complex and conducted for humanitarian purposes.
According to some reports, the body of Senior Lieutenant Alexander Prokhorenko, who died in the Palmyra area in March, was delivered to the Russian Khmeimim airbase, from where it will be forwarded to his homeland.
Recall that a Russian officer caused a military fire aviation upon himself, being surrounded by ISIS militants. By decree of the President of Russia, Alexander Prokhorenko was awarded the title Hero of Russia (posthumously).
