Russia began to form a permanent grouping in Syria


He thanked Parliament for ratifying the agreements. Today, the Council of the Federation has considered a document suggesting the expansion of the Navy's logistics support center in Tartus to a full-fledged naval base.

The agreement defines the procedure for the entry of Russian warships into Syrian ports, their registration and the movement of military equipment. It is agreed that at the same time 11 ships can be in Tartus, including atomic ones.

The cost of expanding the base will be 3,2 billion rubles a year. The agreement is valid for 49 years with the possibility of its automatic renewal for 25-year periods.

Protocol that governs the placement of Russian aviation groups in Syria, parliament approved in the summer of 2017.

On December 11, the President ordered the withdrawal of a significant part of the contingent from Syria after the defeat of the terrorists. At the same time, it was announced that the Russian bases in Hmeimim and Tartus will continue to function, reports RIA News

        This is understandable.
        Criticizing is always easier.
        But to offer something and to do it already requires completely different efforts and knowledge.
        I think that many opponents of Putin will not miss the moment to touch on these costs against him.

        In my opinion, it is a big mistake to conclude an agreement with the Syrian side for only 49 years. Speak it will be possible to extend? Power may change and hi contract. After all, the Black Sea Fleet’s arena in Sevastopol was prolonged, and if Crimea hadn’t returned home today, it would probably not have been there. And there would be a NATO base.
        Learning is needed from the Americans. Guantanamo Base in Cuba as an example. 3.4 thousand dollars a year and walk. Do not take this money - your business. And the territory under the base with the bay forever under a contract with the United States. Why didn’t they give us land for permanent use in Tartus and Khmeinim? Say for 100 thousand rubles. Give a hat to someone who concludes contracts or in hot Magadan let him bring benefits.

          What else do you expect from effective managers? Nothing prevents us from taking bases in Syria for eternal and free use. We can well restore the reconnaissance base in Cuba, destroyed by GDP, and much more. There is only one hope left: on Grudinin.

      Gazprom Corporation (the state owns more than 50%) contains the "echo of Moscow" So, for the state it’s more expensive, the harm from the radio station or the benefits of the military base

      I share my hopes, because a holy place does not happen empty. And there will be enough work in Syria for a long time, especially since the star-striped are not going to go there. negative

      Read my post a little higher. No need to hope - you need to learn from someone else's positive experience in owning bases on someone else’s territory. Today we are welcome there. Time will pass and the same Syrians may shout that we are not brothers and that they have been occupied. To the approving hum of Western countries. And then who knows how the drum will turn.
      If we saved Syria and its people, then we are the main buns. We need to tie this country to us economically. Who prevented us from agreeing with the Syrian authorities on providing the coast for the construction of the resort area on favorable terms? It is better that our citizens go there in 5 years than Egypt does to Turkey ... After all, our military will be there.
      Something I don’t hear about any economic agreements, about the expansion of trade, mining, about the development of agriculture, etc. And their agricultural production could be significantly supplemented by our domestic market so that it is inappropriate to grow with us. Closer ties should be made that our countries would benefit ... We look forward to when others will take all this?

    I probably seem very mercantile, but I would like an expert opinion, but what can we have there besides the political influence on camels of all stripes and bones in the throat of the West. What are the opportunities to earn there?

      Recently, there was an article on VO, which said that Russia is now
      has the moral right to mine in Syria.
      (I do not mind - on health drinks ) But there are no special minerals there.
      There is not much oil, and it is under the Kurds. There is little gas at all. Maybe they will find gas on the shelf.
      There are phosphates. Not much value.

        Value can be not only in minerals, but also strategic and political value. For example, was the base in Cuba of great value? There are no fossils, but the political impact on the States was obvious.

          It would be better if the fossils were there. And then the value is very large left. To build an fishing fleet with infrastructure for the island, buy expensive sugar and sell oil for a pittance, give out loans ... If you send these funds to support partisans on the mainland, the United States would forget about Cuba and the USSR at the moment!

        And if there will also be a base in Libya, and everything’s going to this, then it’ll be splendor in general. Provided that Egypt allowed us to use their military airfields.

      Egorovich ....... A timely and necessary solution. Syria is a magnificent outpost of Russia in the Mediterranean.

      In addition, the issue of creating there a resort area for military personnel of the Moscow region and their families is being considered for the period of vacation. It is beautiful there in winter.
      Moreover, government investment is not required.

        Previously, the Russians didn’t go there very much, but now, after reconciliation in the SAR, not only military servicemen will go to these resort areas, there will be crowds.

    There was Syria at one time. I liked the climate - hot but dry. The heat is tolerated normally, even cool in the evening, as the climate of the desert. He lived in the hotel "Ebla Cham Palace" 5 *. Last year on Google maps I saw that there was no water in the pool. And today I was curious - water appeared. Life is getting better?
