        an absolutely worthless and senseless war that does not meet any interests of Russia, but only the exclusively political interests of the Chekist mafia entrenched in the Kremlin ... It’s a pity for the officer that he died not for his homeland and not for fame, but only for money .. Well, at least the family will probably receive a pension if our valiant shoiguministerstvo does not refuse once again from his employee

              Oh, sorry for the captain! For a very long time I searched the Internet for a photo of the Russian military adviser to Captain Nikolai Afanasov who died in the UAR - but so far I have not found it! His photo must be put up later, because I want the fighting Heroes of Russia and the Russians need to know in person!

              Our most sincere condolences to the family and friends, friends and comrades of the captain of the RF Armed Forces Nikolai Afanasov!

        Do not confuse the capabilities of the former USSR and today's Russia, it’s like a MEMBER with a Finger in shape and similar functions.

Never, and the flaps will be torn in an hour, well, for two, well, okay, for three

    Rest in peace.
    This is war. In the war they shoot. Any death is not fair. Especially when young officers die, and even from crazy fragments.
    Regarding general losses. "Kommersant" is almost "Echo ..." From the point of view of information quality.
    Our Defense Ministry, apparently, is poorly informed ... But even if the "liberalists" are right, sadly, but 32 people died in 2 almost years of the war, in which we undoubtedly win, this is not much. The Americans do not advertise their losses in Syria, but judging by their tantrums about, for example, the battles for Aleppo, their losses were not small.

      And a lot, in your opinion, how much would it be?
      And as for the fact that we are already winning this war, I would refrain from inappropriate optimism - there is still a long way to go and you don’t have to wish for a real, too complicated knot there and we are not the only players there .... There are no simple solutions in Syria - you have to negotiate and compromise, taking into account the interests of all the warring parties ....
      And on BV - this is time and time, they don’t like to rush there ....
      I don’t know what the Arab mentality and military operations in this region are - I had to serve in the group of Soviet military advisers at one time ... "In a foreign land, in a foreign formation, we are conducting foreign battalions" ... from a song from those times written by one of the officers ...
      Thank God that, unlike the times of the USSR, now the Defense Ministry, basically, does not hide its head in the sand and does not try to hide the obvious facts about which the whole world already knows ...
      Land in peace Soldier and condolences to the loved ones.

        After the Khasavyurt agreements, the war did not end. On the contrary, soon a new round began, the invasion of Dagestan. In Transnistria - yes, he stopped the war as a military commander of the 14th army. And in Khasavyurt, as a politician, he most likely was defeated ...
