“This is for boys” – the last words of major Roman Filipov now probably will repeat our pilots by clicking on the button or dropping bombs on terrorists in Syria.

Roman said them before to blow himself up with a grenade. The video with the last fight of our pilot, as evidence of its success posted by the militants. So let the rumors about Russian propaganda installation can only be very sick in the head people. Recall that Filipov was shot down February 3, when he flew over the area of de-escalation in Idlib near the village of tel-Debes controlled by terrorists. The pilot reported a rocket hit was trying to keep the plane in the air, but was forced to eject.

Shooting the ground combat was conducted, apparently, a mobile phone. Seen as hiding behind a big rock Filipovo run, surrounding him, about a dozen armed bandits. By this time our officer was already seriously wounded and could not fight — until he was fired from a gun. When the terrorists came close, Roman detonated a grenade (of course, grenades are not included in the regular ammunition of the pilots, but in Syria there is a war). Before the explosion, heard his last words. According to unconfirmed reports, the grenade officer killed two militants.
