Downed Russian pilot ‘shouts “this is for our guys” before killing himself with a grenade to avoid being captured by jihadists’ in Syria
Major Roman Filipov had ejected from his Sukhoi 25SM fighter jet after being hit with a missile from a portable surface-to-air system in Idlib, Syria.
The 33-year-old old pilot came under fire from rebel fighters from the Al-Qaeda linked group Al-Nusra Front, but landed safely. He then detonated a hand grenade rather than give himself up, and video filmed by the rebels show the moment he shouts ‘This is for our guys!’ before killing himself.
