Shamans: Russian bases in Syria will remain, and will develop

After the withdrawal of the main part of the Russian contingent in Syria, there will remain two military bases - Hamim and Tartus - which will continue to develop in the long term, reports Interfax Statement by the Chairman of the Duma Defense Committee Vladimir Shamanov.

Both bases in Syria, both Hamim and Tartus, will not only continue to function, but will constantly improve their qualities and capabilities, having ahead of us a long-term perspective of our presence in this far from peaceful region,
Shamanov told the agency.

According to him, “today, a period of post-conflict settlement has arrived in Syria with its own difficulties and peculiarities, but Russia has gained much experience as a result of the so-called first and second campaigns in the Caucasus.”

We have much to share with our Syrian colleagues and other guarantors of the peace process in Syria,
noted the deputy.

He added that “now a plan for the implementation of a post-conflict settlement will be clarified jointly with our colleagues, and one of the documents will be worked out there - a schedule for withdrawing a certain amount of forces and means, but this will all be determined by the Supreme Commander”.

Recall, on Wednesday, Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces, General of the Russian Army Valery Gerasimov, at a briefing for foreign military attaches, stated that Syria was completely liberated from the IG terrorists (the group was banned in the Russian Federation), all the pseudo-caliphate gangs were destroyed.

    two military bases will remain in Syria - Khmeimim and Tartus
    Which will not only support power in Syria, but also solve the geopolitical tasks of Russia.

      Will it not be difficult for you to list the geopolitical tasks of Russia, the solution of which is facilitated by the bases in Tartus and Hmeimim? Without sarcasm, just interesting.

    The main thing is that the Syrians, in the wake of euphoria, do not decide - that now they are the coolest and you can ask for Russia .... Or, even worse, provoke a war with neighbors.

      Where are they going to go. Now, after Trump is thrown out with Jerusalem, this could start ruinously in the BV ... No matter how drastically increase the contingent was to protect the bases, Damascus, and the entire coast. From whom, I think, it is clear.

        I do not understand. Explain, please. From whom and why?
        And by the way, how? In terms of supply, at least.

    Russia is the guarantor of peace (which I hope will nevertheless come) in Syria. In general, our military bases will probably become a guarantee of peace in the entire Middle East.

    This talker would better shut up. In Ryazan, he promised veterans of the Armed Forces to support the demand in the State Duma to restore full pension to military pensioners, and he voted to leave everything as it is.
