Hardline militants in the northwestern province of Idlib savagely defiled the bodies of the crew of the Russian helicopter which has been shot down earlier today near the city of Saraqib.

A video released by the rebels shows the ultra-conservative fighters taunting the bodies of two Russian servicemen who were stripped off their uniforms. The footage also display the burnt-out wreckage of the downed Mil Mi-8.

Russian Ministry of Defense has issued an official statement declaring that a Russian military transport helicopter Mi-8 was downed by ground fire on the way to the ‪Hmeymim airbase after delivery of humanitarian aid to the Aleppo city in the ‪Idlib province.

R.I.P these brave Russian Pilots who are fighting for the freedom of the world against US sponsored barbarism.

They have not died in vain and Russia will be even more determined now to eradicate the NATO Terrorist foreign Legions from Syria and Iraq.

You damn sure DO NOT speak for Americans, you speak for yourself. How anyone, American or not, can say that Russia is their ‘natural enemy’ is a stupid brainwashed idiot. The fact that you are equating Muslims with this bunch of bought and paid for mercenaries is evidence enough that you’ve bought the Muslim boogeyman facade created by KSA/Israel/US Zionists to use to destroy the world. Putin does not support terrorism, yet he is fighting for Syrians, does that tell you anything?…probably not.

You are so fuckin stupid considering Russia your enemy. You are classic intoxicated american peopel. Look to your candidates Killary and Trump!

Clinton etc etc. For your knowledge i’m Romanian, not Russian or Arabian!

The Soviet pilots would be alive and if necessary hold a press conference showing the turning over ceremony of the Soviet pilots from American citizen hands to the U.S.A.F.

Heath Austin
Guest

This is for example … If the Cold War turned hot during the 1980’s and the Soviets were on American soil and I shot down the Soviet pilots. The Soviet pilots would be treated with respect and hold the Soviet pilots until the U.S. Air Force could arrive to pick the Soviet pilots up and the U.S.A.F. process the Soviet pilots as prisoners of war.

I think the right thing for the Arabs in the video was to turn the Soviet pilots over to the Syrian Army then President Assad and President Putin could work things out themselves. The arabic terrorists really made a fool of themselves in front of the world and as a result, both the wrath from President Assad & Putin abides upon the arabic terrorists. Nobody likes the arabic terrorists anyways.

Sorry, you are wrong. The Orange Buffoon is just the latest flavor of liar and thief….liar in chief…whatever. The only thing that might come from Trump is the destruction of our country…which might be a good thing, as it might be the only way we can shake the Zionist grip. Then again, it might just shatter the US in smaller, more manageable pieces for the NWO…OR he could just be a stepping stone for a real scumbag, Pence, who is a true end-timer. The last thing Trump will be know for is MAGA.
