Deputy Foreign Minister on the future of Russian bases in Syria

33
The scale of the withdrawal of Russian troops from Syria after the victory over the terrorists will depend on the prevailing situation, but both bases are likely to remain, reports RIA News Statement by Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov.




I think we will have bases. In what form - I cannot say, I am not the Minister of Defense, it’s better to turn to him for this,
said the diplomat to the agency.

In March 2016, the President of the Russian Federation decided to withdraw the majority of the Russian VKS grouping in connection with the successful completion of the tasks. At the same time, Moscow did not refuse to commit to supplying the Syrian government with weapons and equipment and training military specialists; Hmeimim airbase and a naval weapons and military equipment point in Tartus are still functioning. In addition, there is a Russian reconciliation center in Syria.

According to Syromolotov, if the IG grouping (banned in the Russian Federation) has about 10% of the territory conquered before, then Dzhebhat al-Nusra (banned in the Russian Federation) continues to act, and a struggle is being waged against it. In addition, individual gangs in Syria move between factions, sometimes acting independently.

We very often come in unexpected players who were not on the field, and then they appeared, and the situation changes radically,
noted the deputy minister, citing as an example the results of the Kurdish elections, which may affect what they take in the future.

Therefore, (something) to guarantee and assign deadlines now simply has no real prospects,
added on.

          You can’t leave. Moreover, you need a base in North Africa on the coast

    but both bases probablywill stay

    What does "likely" mean? Or is a diplomat used to expressing himself only in diplomatic language? They will remain at the fear of the enemies and “joy” to the “partners” who, having made no efforts to destroy the militants (and, on the contrary, helping them), will already divide the Syrian territory.

    Of course, the bases will remain, the hands of friendship with us, I hope, no longer itch. SIMPLY SO. Bases, it's such a sedative. Hot boys to rest whom in the desert, and whom and drive into the Sea of ​​Marmara and drown.

    It’s too early to talk about complete victory ... This cancerous tumor has already spread across the globe ...
    Correctly, the deputy minister says that often unexpected actions come in, and from somewhere unknown (yeah ...) forces ...
    So the bases should remain in a fully operational state ... For what did people die, equipment and money were destroyed?
    After all, it’s worth leaving Russia from there, Assad will be dumped and destroyed, and the country will be torn to shreds ...

    It’s even hard to imagine how we used to live without Syria, B.V. control and the Mediterranean Sea, but they lived well, by the way.

    Strange, the deputy foreign minister of the Russian Federation is not aware that an agreement was signed between Russia and Syria on the deployment of the Russian Navy base in Tartus, and the VKS vases at the Hiyomim aerodrome for a period of 49 pet. After this period, if the parties do not terminate the agreement, then it is extended for another 25 years.

    Bases are needed! With proper rotation, to ensure Russia's strategic objectives, the Russian defense front will move to the "Fortified Areas" remote from our borders. We can promise that we will not enter Canada, N.Zelandiya, Canada!

    Everything is repeated when they entered Afghanistan, they also said that if we do not enter, then the Americans will come there and threaten the Union. Now come up with a new garbage gas pipelines.

    Such an error will not be repeated already.
    Russian bases will not be withdrawn from Syria.
    This ensures the peaceful future of the Middle East and the tranquility of the Russian borders and regions.

    It’s good to be the chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, right? You know everything, you understand all matters and you can predict the future, with knowledge of the matter. So your last name is Gerasimov?

    It may be better to leave Syria .... then the standard of living of Russians will increase and Russia will move from 90th place, in terms of living, between Laos and Guatemala - closer to European countries ....

      The standard of living is a biased thing. Unlike the HDI. According to the HDI of the Russian Federation on the 50th.

    Can the CIS simply become part of Russia, and at the same time Syria and the Baltic and Ukraine? This option is much better.
