Russia withdraws troops from Syria before a possible clash with the US

32
The Syrian army, supported by Hezbollah, began stripping the “cauldron” formed after taking control of the left bank of the Euphrates River. In the early days of the fighting, government forces managed to free about two thousand square kilometers of terrorists.


At the same time, up to 3 thousands of ISIL militants remain in Iraqi territory. Such data leads coalition, led by the United States. Most of them are located in the Syrian desert (the name of the desert, spread out in the territories of Syria, Jordan, Iraq and Saudi Arabia). The remaining militants have to build up shock forces to break out of yet another "cauldron" in Iraq. Indeed, after the liberation of the valley of the Euphrates River, they were locked up by Syria.

It should be noted that the terrorists stepped up in several directions at once. In particular, the difficult situation remains in the province of Idlib. There, the Syrian, Iranian and Russian alliance is preparing a large-scale operation against the Hayat Tahrir ash-Sham group, which, according to the United States, is a "moderate opposition." The Americans have already said they will not allow the use of force against them. The question arises whether Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision on the withdrawal of the Russian contingent from Syria would not be hasty?

    there is such a proverb "even though si in the eye - all God's dew"! this is to what GDP is doing right. Anything can be expected from the unpredictable Trump and the surrounding lobby (to put it mildly, Israeli!)

      Throughout this story, Erdogan behaved unpredictably once. The rest is predictable and understandable for many moves forward.

    The peculiarity of Putin’s rule is that he begins to do something right, but then he stops being afraid of what might happen. Not a single thing has been completed to the advantage of Russia; he always leaves a big "piece" to someone! And everything that he does is at the expense of his people, and not for the people. So, here, in the USA, according to experts, there are 8 military bases, and they are not going to go anywhere. What should I conclude?

      I agree. I will add that before the election, the Kremlin needs to "show victory." Without the withdrawal of troops, the victory is painfully conditional.

    Time will tell, but what the United States wants to try through al-Qaeda, which they consider moderate opposition, to strike at Assad and capture Syria is beyond doubt.

    Vladimir Putin emphasized that the withdrawal of troops should serve as a positive signal for all parties to the conflict in Syria.

    You must conclude that Russian Orthodox Russia will be in a whole, indivisible Syria. In Syria, without terrorists and without the United States and other foreign soldiers, mercenaries and terrorists, except for the Syrian army and Russian troops! In short.

        And you re-read it. For the most foolish, I’ll explain that Syria will be whole, indivisible. Nobody will get anything from Syria. There will be no terrorists and the USA and other foreign soldiers in Syria, except for the government’s legitimate Syrian army and the legitimate president of Syria, legally elected Syrians, their people, Bashar al-Assad. And in Syria will be legitimately located, legally Russian troops at the Russian bases in Syria.

      Russia will create a full-fledged naval base in Syria
      Moscow. December 13th. INTERFAX.RU - A full-fledged Russian naval base will be created in Syrian Tartus, Admiral Viktor Kravchenko, former chief of the General Staff of the Russian Navy, told Interfax on Wednesday.
      “This will strengthen the operational capabilities of our fleet in the Mediterranean Sea and, in general, Russia's position in the Middle East,” said Kravchenko.
      He noted that earlier in Tartus, Russia had a logistics point, "this is a small territory, expanding the territory, we are creating a naval base."
      “The base implies a decent territory, all types of security and defense, the entry of ships - to cruisers of the first rank. They will be able to replenish supplies, and the personnel will have a rest, ”Kravchenko said.
      Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday submitted for ratification to the State Duma an agreement between the Russian Federation and Syria on expanding the territory of the logistics point of the Russian Navy in the vicinity of the port of Tartus.
      The Interfax interlocutor said that the air and sea cover of the Navy base in Tartus is provided by S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems, as well as Bastion coastal missile systems with cruise missiles.
      In October last year, the Russian military department reported that the S-300 systems (manufactured by Concern VKO Almaz-Antey JSC) were sent to Syria to ensure the security of the base in Tartus and the naval operational link ships located in the coastal zone. According to Interfax, Tartus is covering the battery of the S-300V4 system. This is the latest air defense system that will provide protection against long-range missiles and aircraft attacks.
