Russian ‘Rambo’s’ Last Brave Words Before Calling in Airstrike on His Location to Kill ISIS

The story of the Russian soldier who called in an airstrike on his own position to kill ISIS has been told around the world. Now, his last words have been revealed.

Alexander Prokhorenko

From the Mirror:

A transcript of Alexander Prokhorenko’s final communications with Russian Special Forces has been released revealing how he was surrounded by ISIS ‘b*******’ and low on ammunition as he attempted to hold off gunfire.

He was ordered to move to safety before the air strike but told his commander he couldn’t escape the area, before adding: “Conduct the airstrike now, please hurry.”

He went on to say: “I am surrounded, they are outside, I don’t want them to take me and parade me, conduct the airstrike, they will make a mockery of me and this uniform.

“I want to die with dignity and take all these bastards with me. please my last wish, conduct the airstrike, they will kill me either way.”

In his last communication he said: “This is the end commander, thank you, tell my family and my country I love them. Tell them I was brave and I fought until I could no longer.

“Please take care of my family, avenge my death, goodbye commander, tell my family I love them.”

He married his wife 18 months ago, calling himself the happiest man in the world when he did, and she apparently had no idea he was serving in Syria. They were expecting their first child together. Many people are rightly calling him a hero, but make no mistake: this story is heartbreaking and tragic. Rest in peace, soldier.
