    What is the victory? Today, the Ishilovites broke through to the right bank of the Euphrates and again seized large territories, many Syrians died, there are hundreds or even thousands (who counted them) of militants in the wilderness, the enclave of ig in the Hama province doubled in a week, militants from KhTSh are massively moving to their side and soon it will become very difficult to beat them and now there is no one. In the suburb of Damascus (Yarmouk refugee camp), fifteen hundred igas are sitting, but you have a victory? And, of course, Putin ELECTIONS !!!
