Roman Nikolayevich Filipov (Russian: Рома́н Никола́евич Фили́пов; 13 August 1984 – 3 February 2018) was a Russian military pilot who committed suicide after being wounded by militants when his Su-25SM jet was shot down in Idlib Province, Syria on 3 February 2018. Filipov was posthumously awarded the honor of the Hero of the Russian Federation.


Roman Filipov was born on 13 August 1984 in Voronezh to the family of a military pilot and graduated from school No. 85 in Voronezh in 2001.

Filipov held his ground as the militant fighters approached, exchanging fire with them with his sidearm. After being wounded, he blew himself up with a grenade as enemy fighters closed in on his position in order to avoid capture.
