Russians Take Their Revenge On Syrians After Plane Is Shot Down.
The Russians were not happy after they lost a plane over Syria. The pilot Major Roman Filipov is said to have been flying over the Idlib de-escalation zone when he was shot down by terrorists.
“Tahrir al-Sham, the extremist group linked to Al-Nusra terrorists, has claimed responsibility for the downing of the Russian aircraft, according to Reuters.”
The plane, which was an SU-25, was shot down by a Man-portable air-defense system. (MANPADS) Filipov, the Russian pilot, supposedly fought off enemy forces for as long as possible before he ran out of ammo and made one last kamikaze attack with a grenade. While pulling the pin he yelled out “This is for the boys!”

“Filipov was posthumously awarded the Hero of Russia medal, the highest honorary title of the Russian Federation.
“The pilot died heroically. The pilot’s family and friends have our condolences, and we are proud of our heroes,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.”
But Russia wasn’t done with the Syrian terrorists and wanted revenge, The Russians later released the following footage of their attack on the terrorists. Supposedly 30 terrorists were killed in the airstrikes they performed in retaliation.
Watch The Video Below.
Filipov was shot down on Saturday but was unable to take on the overwhelming number of terrorists that he landed by. It is nice to see a country step up and take out the enemy as the Russians did here. We luckily have Trump but he has to deal with the irrational liberals who are constantly undermining his actions and making attacks like this harder to do.
The Russian pilot gave it his all and in response, his country backed him up and honored him properly. You can’t ask for more than that.
