Thousands paid their last respects to Major Roman Filipov, the Russian airman who was downed in Syria and gave his life fighting terrorists on the ground. The hero Su-25 pilot was laid to rest in his hometown of Voronezh.

Thanks for sharing this Boss.

I'm following that event from a start. Man really died like a hero and deserve to be mentioned here. Usually this place is reserved for commemorations of only NATO soldiers. With the Legion's structure of men it shouldn't be that way. I'm glad that someone shared this. Especially when comes from a highest level. Hope that some of members can get over cold war BS at least for a short period of time.

Apparently the Russians worked with the Turks and recovered the body as well as the wreckage of the plane. No info on how exactly though.
