Military Review

Having knocked out the Yankees from the saddle in Syria, Russia took up their lackeys

69



News from the Middle East, they flow in an endless stream, allowing them to be interpreted as you please. The most interesting concept is that "Russia surrenders Syria to Erdogan." Putin, under pressure from Ankara, released Tatar "prisoners of conscience" and allowed to occupy the north of Syria. Now he withdraws his troops, leaving a third of the territory to the Kurds. Syria will be divided - the United States won. "Ah, yes," Trump blackmailed the Russian president, threatening to arrest his accounts and property outside of Russia.
Consider successively known facts.

For some reason, none of the so-called "experts" stutters that the mentioned release of the "Majlis" is in fact an exchange for two citizens of Germany and Sweden. The ex-Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, the head of the Nord Stream-2 Supervisory Board led Herr Schröder led the negotiations on their release. As a result, Russia got rid of two parasites and accusations of political persecution of the Crimean Tatars.

At the same time, both pardoned by the decree of the President of Russia repeat the fate of Nadezhda Savchenko. Poroshenko has already accepted them and caressed them, awarded them with orders for something and sent them to the rest of the manual figures of the “Majlis in Exile” to divide posts and a short budget. What no one is happy about there is not enough money and posts too. That is, a gang of political prostitutes, earning on this topic released "strengthen" in the same way as Savchenko-Poroshenko or Tymoshenko.

Berlin, Ankara and Stockholm are grateful to Russia, at the same time Schröder decided questions on the joint venture-2.

About billions in secret contributions will not. Why are they to Vladimir Putin, if he has all of Russia and no one can explain the recognition of the population? Already in the Crimea to his services everything, everything and always.

Now about the rumors that a number of domestic media have been referring to since yesterday’s dinner, with reference to "credible informed sources from the inner circle of Defense Minister Shoigu."

To begin with, it is worth remembering that Russia has already “withdrawn” some of its videoconferencing systems — Bashar al-Assad’s enemies and US friends have since gotten worse. That is, in itself, the "input-output" is nothing more than white noise. Moreover, the goals and objectives in Syria have changed fundamentally.

I mentioned yesterday "Military materials"that it is impossible to solve the combat task in the changed theater without the same tool without losing effectiveness. It’s one thing to free two-thirds of Syria’s territory from the regular (Arabic-specific) army. And it’s quite another to wage a real counterterrorist struggle in the already liberated territory. And this is exactly what Syria will have to go through next year, and God forbid, only in the next one.

For these events, you need no longer assault aviation and not howitzers, MLRS and "Pinocchio", and tribal commandos trained specifically for such terror groups. Those who know the language, professing the same branch of Islam as the local population, do not differ at all in anything. Because, among other things, the local population is very sensitive to this type of database. Importantly, the losses here are an order of magnitude higher than they were at the previous stage. Cleaning up settlements is generally a difficult business in every sense, including "collateral damage."
It makes no sense for Russia to participate in all this. On the contrary, it should distance itself as much as possible, transferring all the formal functions of the Syrian army and other allies.

That is what is happening now. Russia will indeed announce and even begin (during the rout of the jihadists in Idlib) the rotation of a part of the VKS and the withdrawal of the personnel of the ground group. Passing a heavy weapon Syrian army and leaving specialists in maintenance, repair, operation. Of course, a wide range of advisers, and special forces groups, and helicopters, both transport and fire support. This is a few thousand people, even without taking into account the notorious people from the PMCs of Wagner. At the same time, there is no need to talk about any significant reduction in numbers. Rather, it is about adjusting the configuration of groups for new tasks.

But according to the intergovernmental agreements signed the other day between Damascus and Tehran, the 65-I brigade of the special mission of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps has already been sent and deployed to Syria. The number of members was not disclosed, but according to open Iranian sources, it can be assumed that this is about 5 thousands of bayonets with all means of reinforcement.

That's just the perfect way to solve problems in new conditions. This is from the IRGC, and not from the Iraqi Security Council, Kurds from Kirkuk fled in panic.

Having knocked out the Yankees from the saddle in Syria, Russia took up their lackeys


As Brigadier General Ahmad Purdastan reported, the command of the brigade has already assumed the leadership of all the forces of special operations in Syria and “took under its hand” the Iranian (Shiite) formations from Afghanistan and Pakistan. Well, Hezbollah, of course. Until now, nothing like this in Syria.

At the same time, it is necessary to take into account one more moment not hidden by Tehran. The elite of the Iranian army (the IRGC is compared with the GI) take professionals who already have experience of fighting in Kurdistan for at least six months. The 65 Brigade knows, can and is sharpened to fight the Peshmerga and other Kurdish formations. And since the Kurds today control many times more territory than they will leave as a result of future negotiations, Turkey and Iran are ideally suited for clashes. At the same time, the Kurds are well aware that the United States is far away, and these two states will not disappear anywhere and will always be not just next door - millions of Kurds still have some way to live in them.

Such a configuration of coalition forces formed by Russia is the ideal of all possible. As mentioned earlier, this way Russia unties itself as a political leader in the negotiation process. It will not be blamed for the direct destruction of the Kurds, but it is convenient for Russia to mediate and offer bonuses for a reasonable attitude of the Kurdish leadership and the ability to retreat.

Actually, Russia is already doing it. Rosneft has signed a production sharing agreement and will deliver oil from the territories of Iraqi Kurdistan through Turkey to its plants in Germany (more). There are other bonuses ahead, the sizes and recipients of which depend on the correct choice of allies and irreproachable behavior.

Of course, "it was smooth on paper." And the Kurds are far away not united, and each of the allies have enough of their interests. But it has always been the art of the possible.

And sometimes, as Russia has proved in Syria, and the impossible.

    In the West, let them want what they are talking about the state of affairs in Syria and the "loss" of Russia. They somehow need to make excuses for their defeats, so they are forced to babble all nonsense. The main thing is that Assad is still in power, as the Americans and their allies did not try, the bandits are hammering in the fifth strengthened and even the vaunted American “power” cannot do anything, Russia is quietly deciding its affairs in this region. In a word, time will dot all I.

    The main problem of Russia in Syria is .... Iran. There (in Iran) Russia is not something that is not loved, hated. And the Iranians are not really fighting the war in Syria with Russia, and reckoning that they are sure that it was they who defeated ISIS in Syria> and Russia has nothing to do there because the Russians are not any better than the Americans. And the Americans and the Israelis are good at dispelling any wormhole in the relations of their opponents. Russia has yet to seriously clash with its Iranian "ally"

        I never understood those who say that the people in the country treat Russians well, like we were there and saw it ourselves. What did you see there? You did not see anything, because you communicated with people of the lowest strata. And those who determine the policy of the country, they live in a completely different world, their education and worldview are completely different. Therefore, those who are in the country and communicate with ordinary people see one thing, and the "elite" of the country and its leadership thinks completely different. You don’t have to go far — take the USA — simple people — hard workers are normal towards Russia — there is nothing to share with ordinary people, but all the intelligentsia, warriors, media workers, politicians and other elite directly come out with poison towards Russia ...

    Trump blackmailed the president of Russia, threatening to seize his accounts and property outside of Russia.
    Not the president, personally, but those who took offshore from the Russian Federation - these are denyuzhki of our entire "elite", including Putin’s closest associates, and they don’t have the whole of Russia, otherwise they wouldn’t take them anywhere, and the children live in the West. Yanukovych was overthrown as a result of the conspiracy of the Ukrainian oligarchs and the ruling elite, and nobody still touches his accounts.
    This is exactly what is happening now. Russia will indeed announce and even begin (in the course of the defeat of the jihadists in Idlib) the rotation of a part of the air forces and the withdrawal of the personnel of the ground group. By transferring heavy weapons to the Syrian army and leaving specialists in maintenance, repair, operation. Of course, a wide range of advisers, and special forces, and helicopters, both transport and fire support. These are several thousand people even without taking into account the notorious people from PMC Wagner. At the same time, there is no need to talk about any significant reduction in numbers. Rather, it is about adjusting the grouping configuration to new tasks.
    I apologize, but now is it not so? I thought there were special forces, VKS and Wagner groups — there are no ground troops, heavy weapons in the form of Solntsepeks, T-90, etc. are transferred to the pro-Assad forces, since they periodically lose it - what then does the author suggest?
    Actually, Russia is already doing this. Rosneft has signed a production sharing agreement and will deliver oil from Iraqi Kurdistan through Turkey to its plants in Germany (more). There are other bonuses ahead, the sizes and recipients of which depend on the right choice of allies and impeccable behavior.
    Well, oil is Kirkuk, and the Kurds surrendered it in a couple of days to the Iraqi army, and now Iraq is asking Rosneft questions - like what was that, gentlemen explain? The Kurds do not have oil now, but Rosneft can’t do anything about it, not taking into account this scenario. There is a complete failure, and in any case, the Turks immediately declared that in the case of the proclamation of an independent Kurdistan, they would not pass any oil!
    Analytics, of course not, Kamenev thought there was one such

      It seems that not everything is so simple and unambiguous as you described here. Yes, the Americans have framed Rosneft for large, but at what cost? Iraq asks Rosneft, “what was that?”, And Rosneft answers, “you are US allies, Kurds are US allies here and sort out who owns Kirkuk’s oil, but nothing is personal to us just business.” Russia did not recognize the independence of Kurdistan, did not promise independence to the Kurds, this is a US project and demand from them. And now Kurds are asking the USA, “What was that?”, You promised independence if we fight for you, we fight, but you support Iraq and take Kirkuk away from us? But now estimate what will happen if the Kurds in Syria do not go any further and generally return to their lands, and Russia persuades Assad to give the Kurds in Syria wide real autonomy? And the following will happen, the Syrian army will clean up the oil-bearing areas from ISIS (banned in the Russian Federation) and break off Amerov, and what options does the Amer have to start his own ground operation?
      As for Turkey, don’t worry, the GDP and Erdogan agreed on the expense of oil transit, which is why oil is like Rosneft, not Kurdish. Erdogan gets his bakshish and is pleased. Turkey ISIS (banned in the Russian Federation) calmly bought oil that she sulk on ROSneftevskaya.
      Yes, German oil refineries are not easily tied up here, Germany has jobs, taxes and cooperation with Russia in the energy sector, Turkey meets Germany by passing oil through its territory (after the refugee crisis, when Turkey put ultimatums Merkel extorting money) this "friendly step "is very interesting for Turkey.
      So analytics is analytics, but the game here is much finer and larger than you see from a bird's-eye view.

        The military engineers (see the guidance of the crossing on the Euphrates), the units bearing the security of AB Latakia (there, in addition to the VP, the marines - is known, but I think it is not alone), in any case were during the "Second Palmyra" Airborne Division ( apart from military advisers from their composition) ... I think this is an incomplete list.

    Well, in general, it should be so, we in Syria do not need to run through the deserts and dig out some kind of basmachi. You just need to keep the entire process of transition of Syria to civilian rails under the supervision and control, so that the United States stops in time from villains. And the Yankees already, I think, are planning to try again to intervene in Syrian life by trying to create their own de-escalation zones in Syria. I think that again, these bad people conceived something bad.

    Too pathetic title. Nobody else knocked the USA out of the saddle to throw such phrases. The largest oil fields were captured by Kurdish forces, but ISIS has not yet won, plus An-Nusra has not gone anywhere and Idlib is still very, very far away. The author, I'm afraid too far ahead of my optimism

    Maybe because in the east you can’t trust anyone in principle, but you need to work with everyone .. As long as you are strong, they reckon with you and make friends, I don’t know how the Asad’s are in real life.

    Well, right, they invested in the defeat of terrorists, there are military losses, financial expenditures, now pragmatism in the development of the region should defeat the imaginary friendship with Assad. Learn from Western jerkers!

    everything that seemed a little useful has already been learned!
    It remains to not lose your face. And with this, too, everything is in order.

    In my opinion, the only benefit from the Syrian operation of Russia is that it was possible to utilize a huge amount of old equipment and ammunition for relatively little money. Such as T-55, T-62, T-72, MLRS Grad tanks, D-30 howitzers, 23 mm automatic guns, RPK, PK, DShK, KPV machine guns, AK-47 assault rifles, cartridges 7,62X54, 12,7X108 , 14,5X114, 23X152, FAB-100/250/500 air bombs. In the program of Dmitry Kiselyov there was a plot from Syria, in which the correspondent standing on a huge pile of packaging from air bombs said so ... yes, there are tens of thousands of this packaging .. But I still have doubts whether our "c * kin will pay son "for this old iron ....

    I won’t check that Uncle Sam will look at such news and be happy. We must expect provocations or open terrorist attacks from the Americans. Or some other nasty things like the arrest of an embassy or a merchant ship. Or maybe worse. Therefore, it is necessary to limit in every possible way the movements of the American ambassador and diplomats throughout Russia, since they, if not explicit terrorists, but certainly support the terrorists.

    Actually, Russia is already doing this. Rosneft has signed a production sharing agreement and will deliver oil from Iraqi Kurdistan through Turkey to its plants in Germany

    this contract is now filkin deed. Iraqi Kurdistan u! Kurds will be moved away from the borders with Turkey and Iran, will sit in their mountains and recall how good it was before the referendum. they already lost both checkpoints on the border with Turkey - the Turks occupied the Yuzumlu checkpoint last week, having killed rkkashnikov in the district and occupied several square kilometers of Iraqi territory, the Ibrahim Khalil checkpoint together with the Turks occupied today, expected to expand joint exercises on Iraqi territory by entering columns of armored vehicles, against which the Kurds did not dare to crumble. In the near future, the same situation will be at the checkpoint on the border with Iran. so the Kurds will hand over their oil to the Iraqi authorities, and they will work according to their agreements, and not according to the Kurdistan ones.

    A strange article that is not based on real events of the type: 2 private Russian armies are fighting in Syria and a peacekeeping contingent from former combatants has been introduced (special forces, sobr). And most importantly, all this comes with an increase in military presence on earth.

    “We will not talk about billions in secret contributions. Why do they need Vladimir Putin if he has all of Russia and the recognition of the population” - an idiotic phrase, the President is not the master of the Russian Federation under the Constitution, but an employee (at the expense of the budget) with the terms of reference of certain legislation.

    Kurds are sorry, the only non-authoritarian leftists in the Middle East, and it so happened that Russia, the successor to the greatest socialist state, supports their destruction and enslavement by local authoritarian jackals. Eh.

    Fine. The Kurds must be discarded through the joint actions of Iran, Turkey, Iraq and Syria. We must end with all this. Other problems are brewing here. Perhaps, for example, a sharp aggravation in Ukraine.
