Qui Bono from the Downing of Russian Hero Pilot in Syria? Turkish and Russian Military Intelligence Work Together…
The body of the squadron leader who heroically perished near Idlib in Syria, was returned to Russia. The operation was conducted by Russian and Turkish military intelligence officers. Roman Filipov will be buried in his native city of Voronezh on February 8. He was awarded posthumously the title of Hero of Russia. The decree was signed by the President.
How Major Roman Filipov died – terrorists who attacked him caught it on camera. Not seeing a way out and heavily wounded, he pulled the grenade pin, taking with him, per reports, two of his attackers. His last words heard in Russian in the video below have become legendary and they can be translated as #thisisfortheguys :
The immediate Russian retaliation strikes followed, per reports killing at least 50 militants.
I want to draw your attention to the fact that this specific provocation was timed to take place as the major Syria reconciliation forum (began Jan 29) drew to a close in Sochi. Russia hosted hundreds of opposition and militant groups and political factions leaders, as well as the Syrian government delegation, as well as intermediaries and politicians from UN, Iran, Turkey, Kazakhstan and more. The Sochi meeting devised an initial roadmap towards political dialog in Syria. The Sochi Syria forum was opened by Sergey Lavrov, who read Putin’s address.
Another reason for this provocation is to try to break up the budding alliance in the Middle East and Syria between Russia, Iran and Turkey.
It’s easy to see who benefits and who doesn’t.

Russian defence contractor and BUK launch system manufacturer Almaz-Antey completed its own investigation into the MH17 downing in Ukraine in July, 2014. Ukraine denied the responsibility for the attack on the civilian plane en route from Amsterdam, the Netherlands, to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, blaming intermittently the Donbass self-defence and Russia. Nearly 300 people died as a result of the tragedy.
The BUK manufacturer has released the results of its independent investigation, which show that the 9M38-M1 surface-to-air missile from the M1 BUK system was used to shoot down the plane. The missile was produced until the 1990s and Almaz factories discontinued it in 1999. The Almaz-Antey CEO Yan Novikov confirmed that M1 BUK missiles were not delivered to anyone in the 21st century. Moreover, the Russian Army has long retired these older missiles, having been equipped with the new generation weapons. However, M1 is precisely the kind of BUK that is abundant in today’s Ukrainian armed forces.
The Almaz-Antey investigation also confirms that the trajectory of the missile is consistent with the location which at the time of the shoot-down was under Ukrainian (aka, Kiev junta) control. The missile was shot from the neighborhood of the Zaroshchenskoe village, controlled at the time by Kiev. This means that the Donbass self-defence was telling the truth that they had nothing to do with the tragedy.
Almaz-Antey has passed its findings to the MH17 international investigators. In response, Ukraine continues denying its involvement, putting all the blame on the Donbass self-defence and present leadership of the Donetsk and Lugansk Republics.
To prove its findings in action, Almaz-Antey proposes a real-life demo reconstruction of the event. The CEO of Almaz also notes that two US satellites were flying above the sector of E. Ukraine in question during MH17 shoot-down; however, to this day US refused to release the footage in its possession.
The Almaz investigation notes that MH17 could have been additionally damaged by the air-to-air missile from the flying nearby Ukrainian attack aircraft SU-25.
Western double standards: Almaz-Antey has been under EU and US sanctions since MH17 tragedy, based on Ukraine and USA’s accusation that Russia and Donbass self-defence shot down the Malaysian Airlines plane.
