US veteran hails courage of fallen Russian pilot, offers to help family

US veteran hails courage of fallen Russian pilot, offers to help family | 08 Feb 2018 | The death of Russian Air Force pilot Major Roman Filipov has touched the heart of one US military veteran, who contacted RT in a bid to help the family of the fallen serviceman. Major Filipov died after his plane was shot down by militants in Syria’s Idlib province on February 3. After ejecting from the aircraft, he engaged the enemy before detonating a grenade as terrorists closed in on his position. "I read Major Filipov's story with great interest and sorrow," former US Enlisted Air Crew member Steve Sola wrote in an email to RT. "I'm sure the Russian Air Force will take care of his widow and child, but can a little more be done?" Sola offered to contribute to any fund set up to support the bereaved family and, in an interview with RT, was keen to express his admiration for the pilot's bravery.
