A Russian Special forces officer has died a hero in Syria during a target-designation mission near the city of Palmyra, a spokesman for the Russian military contingent at the Hmeymim air base told reporters on Thursday. ( cit. sputnik)

“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 officer was carrying out a combat task in Palmyra area for a week, identifying crucial IS targets and passing exact coordinates for strikes with Russian planes. The officer died as a hero, he drew fire onto himself after being located and surrounded by terrorists.”

Похороны Героя РФ Александра Прохоренко, погибшего в Сирии, пройдут 6 мая

Alexander Prokhorenko wikipedia


  1. RIP in peace you glorious magnificent Slav bastard.
    You died better than most have ever lived. From one combat veteran to another, salute.

  2. My deepest sympathy goes out to the family and military comrades of Alexander Prokhorenko’s. He is a hero who gave his life in the war against ISIS and he will be missed by his family and comrades.

  3. “The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is that a warrior takes everything as a challenge while an ordinary man takes everything as a blessing or a curse.”

    Semper Fi Warrior, Valhalla awaits you with open arms.

  4. I am very proud of Alexander, exited with his amazing action. I spent most of my life in the Russian city hero of Sevastopol and sure that story of this man will be the great inspiration and not forgotten by many people, military and civilian, for many years

  5. No matter what nation or army. A P.F.A.C stands alone in action. the Forward Air Controller is the biggest danger to any enemy. he is hard to find and has a destructive power that is limitless. he Died a solder, i salute a brave man and true hero. from a British P,F,A.C (T,A,C,P,)
