The decision of the Supreme Commander on the withdrawal of a significant number of Russian troops from Syria is the official recognition that the war is over- he stressed
We are very pleased that Syria will enter the new 2018 year already in the status of a free, peaceful country- added senator
The parliamentarian noted that although we are reducing the military group in the SAR, and significantly, but do not withdraw at all. In Hmeimim our remains aviation: bombers, fighters, attack aircraft, army aviation. Remains air defense.
In addition, engineering troops are now coming to the fore. The Russians are involved in the demining of the country. I think other UN countries will join this work. As for the national army, a special responsibility now falls on the Syrian border guards, who are supposed to prevent the possible migration of militants from the territories of neighboring states, to the Syrian police. And also on the air defense system: shelling on imaginary reasons, similar to recent ones, cannot be ruled out.- quotes the words of Bondarev his press service
