Transcript of Final Moments of Russian Spetznaz Officer

, , , ,

Late Spetznaz Operator Alexander Prokhorenko

You may remember the Russian Special Forces Operator in Syria, who recently when finding himself hopelessly surrounded by jihadis and running out of ammunition called in a bomb strike on his own position.

The transcript of his final radio transmission has been distributed by Russian media and translated by Western outlets:

(translated from the Russian)

Officer: command I am compromised, repeat I am compromised.

Command: please repeat and confirm

Officer: They have spotted me, there are shooting everywhere, i am pinned, request evacuation immediately

Command: evacuation request acknowledged

Officer: please hurry I am low on ammo, they seem to be everywhere, I can’t hold them for too long please hurry

Command: Confirmed, hold them off, continue return of fire, go to safe position, air support is monitoring, state coordinates

Officer: gives coordinates which are blurred in the translation

Command: command repeats coordinates which are blurred. Confirm

Officer: confirmed, please hurry I am low on ammo, they are surrounding me, bastards

There are men and then, there are Men.


Those Russian soldiers are some tough, brave dudes. Always have been.

A good death.


Can’t be certain if this is authentic or KGB propaganda. But undeniably we all think it at least could be authentic. Anyone care to hazard a guess how this scenario would play out if the guy was a SEAL or Delta Force, under the administration’s current Rules of Engagement? Very differently I assure you.
