Alexander Prokhorenko was a hero and will be long remembered among legends who fought in the battlefield to bring peace to the world.
He has been named a 'Russian Rambo' for his heroic acts as he soldiered on to free the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra.
Unfortunately, Alexander the Rambo found himself surrounded by Islamic militants. He feared that he would be captured, tortured, killed and his body mutilated as is done to POW - according to the terrorists code of engagement.
He therefore, preferred to die but not in the hands of the enemies.
The legendary soldier chose to die with dignity so he called in an airstrike on his own position. How sad but courageous.
And that was the end of a 25-year-old soldier who greatly contributed to the liberation of Palmyra from ISIS terrorists.
May his gentle soul Rest in Perfect Peace to the glory of God and to the Russian Federation. He died on March 24.
