Russian Defense Ministry Response to the American Brigadier General on “Incidents” in the Sky of Syria

36
The Russian Ministry of Defense commented on the publication in the US edition of the WSJ, which presented the statements of the commander of the 380 Expeditionary Wing of the US Air Force to Brigadier General Corcrana (Korkorian). Recall that on the eve of Corkorian spoke of "dangerous rapprochement of Russian aircraft with the US in the sky of Syria." According to the American general, American aircraft are forced to change course in order to avoid collisions.


Russian Defense Ministry Response to the American Brigadier General on “Incidents” in the Sky of Syria


We present a comment published by the press service of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation:

It is difficult to understand whether the statements made are from the sincere opinion of General Corcoran or he, like many others, was simply used by the outgoing US administration in the framework of the farewell Russophobic performance.

In any case, neither from General Corcoran himself, nor from representatives of his leadership at the Pentagon during regular video bridges with the Russian Defense Ministry regarding compliance with the memorandum on preventing incidents in the skies of Syria, we have not heard such claims.

This is explained by the fact that aviation The US Air Force and the international coalition are trying to act secretly during operations in Syria. Our American colleagues do not like to inform about plans for the combat use of their aircraft, occasionally indicating only a period of time and an approximate area. But not specific types of aircraft and their affiliation.

In the case of the tragic “mistakes” of coalition planes, this allowed us to avoid responsibility for the death of civilians and the destruction of peaceful objects. Suffice it to recall the October 2016 bombing of the Kurdish village of Hassadzhek, which caused the death of civilians. Or the 3 January 2017 bombing by the American strategic bombers of the I-Xlib B-52 province of Idlib, killing more than 20 civilians. Although prior to the entry into force of December 30, through the mediation of Russia, Iran and Turkey, of an agreement on the cessation of hostilities, it was American colleagues who most loudly stated that there were no terrorists in the province of Idlib. It was not by chance that all the “opposition” supported by the USA, France and Great Britain, led by White Helmets, left Aleppo there.

For this reason, Russian pilots regularly remind American and other coalition pilots in the sky of Syria that they are not alone and invisible there. In this case, our pilots operate very professionally, observing all safety measures.

Finally, as General Corcoran himself admitted, our American colleagues often simply cannot be found on the other side of the “hot line” in Qatar, designed to discuss and resolve controversial issues.

Perhaps, if they had used this line more often and for their intended purpose - the commander of the US Air Force 380 Expeditionary Wing would not have had to invent non-existent problems in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

        It is no accident that all the “opposition”, supported by representatives of the White Helmets, left Aleppo and left there from Aleppo.


        Here there would be followed by a trail of "tragic mistake" of several Calibers or Iskander, which was recently discovered by an Israeli satellite

          They act illegally in the sky of Syria, and therefore, let them not be offended, and soon they will begin to bring them down if they do not clean.

    . Our American colleagues do not like to notify about the combat use plans of their aircraft,

    Well, that’s understandable, just right! Why should the enemy notify about their actions! We only call them partners, and not vice versa. But why do not ours reciprocate Americans? Why stubbornly report flights and routes of their planes in Syria? After all, there were already serious suspicions that the Americans directly transmit this information to the barmaley.

    And lately rhetoric has changed. Both Zakharchenko and the generals call a spade a spade.
    Something went quiet on the forum, especially those who doused our generals with slops, that we don’t know how to answer as expected, we chew all snot.

      Yes please! "Mustache is gone !!!" How not to regret the professional pilots of Great America, who, when faced with the non-professional actions of Russian pilots around the world, are forced to make a difficult choice. Choice from a series: Thin and elusive line, between a little farted and a COOL OBOS ** LOSYA !!! And this choice they have to make more and more often ... And throw mud at our generals? Yes "one time"! Why are pilots not given a pack of diapers on flight? The Americans showed the magazine to the Soviet pilots, and we showed them diapers ... Maybe this will help exceptional pilots make the above choice? hi

    If the United States has not officially declared war on Syria, then what are their planes doing there? Nobody invited them there, so the responsibility for any incidents in the sky of Syria lies only with the states. It would be necessary for our diplomats or the military to hint at this circumstance. Or, at the UN, the hype is fanned over blatant aggression.

    Well, let's say, Russian planes fly in the sky of Syria legally, and Amer’s camarilla acts as an aggressor. Since the principle of sovereignty of the territory and the airspace above it, no one has yet canceled.

    This is what stealth technology has brought. Russian pilots do not see the enemy "point-blank". You need to rejoice, but they are worried. I don’t understand why they fly, the results of their actions are also solid - stealth. They just get confused under the "feet".
