Not all heroes wear capes and spandex – some of them don military uniforms. Such as in the case of a brave man now known on the internet as the Russia ‘Rambo’ who recently sacrificed his own life to wipe out members of ISIS on his location in Syria.
Soldier Alexander Prokhorenko stayed in touch with the Russian Special Forces while he was surrounded by ISIS ‘bastards.’ At one point, he was low on ammunition as he attempted to hold off gunfire. He was told by his commander to get to safety before they sent Russian warplanes to bomb the area but his response surprised them: “conduct the air strike now.”

“I am surrounded, they are outside, I don’t want them to take me and parade me, conduct the airstrike, they will make a mockery of me and this uniform.
I want to die with dignity and take all these bastards with me. Please my last wish, conduct the airstrike, they will kill me either way.”

The soldier again had the chance to get in touch with his commander just before the bombs fell. He said his dreams had come true because he has “the best wife in the world” and was serving his beloved nation.
In his final communication, Prokhorenko said:
“This is the end commander, thank you, tell my family and my country I love them. Tell them I was brave and I fought until I could no longer.
Please take care of my family, avenge my death, goodbye commander, tell my family I love them.”

Later, a spokesperson for the Russian military shared:
“The officer died as a hero, he drew fire onto himself after being located and surrounded by terrorists.”
Prokhorenko was 25 years old and he married his wife Ekaterina just 18 months ago. She is reportedly pregnant with their first child.
