“An officer of Russian special operations forces was killed near Palmyra while carrying out a special task to direct Russian airstrikes at Islamic State group targets,” the unnamed representative said, without giving the date of the incident.
“The officer was carrying out a combat task in area for a week, identifying crucial IS targets and passing exact coordinates for strikes with Russian planes,” he said.
“The officer died as a hero, he drew fire onto himself after being located and surrounded by terrorists,”
So not only was the soldier carrying out a solo mission like fucking Rambo he also went out like a hero taking out a squadron of terrorists with him instead of getting captured. Respect.
