Russian Defense Ministry called fake publication on the change of the commander of the grouping of troops in the SAR

16
The defense department hastened to refute the statements about the change of commander of the Russian military group in the Syrian Arab Republic. The statement of the RF Ministry of Defense appeared after the press began discussing the possible appointment of General Sergei Surovikin (Commander-in-Chief of the All-Union Armed Forces of the Russian Federation) to the position of the group commander in the SAR (again).


Information Service RIA News cites the statement of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation:
The commander of the Russian grouping of troops in Syria, Colonel-General Alexander Zhuravlyov competently directs subordinate troops and effectively solves all tasks in full. The credulity of the media to the rumors from anonymous Telegram channels, which became the basis for the next fake, only undermines the well-deserved authority of the editors and is regrettable.


Russian Defense Ministry called fake publication on the change of the commander of the grouping of troops in the SAR


Recall that earlier almost all major media outlets (including Russian news agencies) reported, citing "unnamed sources", that the Defense Ministry allegedly plans to remove General Alexander Zhuravlev from the post of grouping of troops in Syria "in connection with the latest events."

The defense department notes that Colonel-General Zhuravlyov qualitatively performs work on planned combat training of personnel and provides direct assistance to the process of peaceful settlement in the SAR.

General Zhuravlev headed the Russian grouping of troops in Syria in December 2017.

        Calculate the "source" (if in the territory of the Russian Federation) send him a summons, and best of all the editorial staff
        Morning did not portend anything sinister. The doorbell rang., I felt, I don’t know why, I say ask who if you don’t open the door! We have a partition. The husband went into the corridor, returned with a summons to the recruiting office for retraining. Husband 38 years old, not military, served in the army. Say that I am shocked to say nothing !!! I say why I didn’t ask ??? He says - a woman, said, open. You need to come to the draft board today.

      There is no smoke without fire. The Yankees really put a large detachment of our allies there, and they scream to the whole world, and this subhuman cowardly tail was waiting for it to end, and now the hospitals in Moscow are trying to put together the mutilated bodies of our fellow citizens.

    And it should. If he really worked well, there would not have been so many losses among our allies. For several hours they were hollowed out of the air, that they could not send a couple of dryers for reconnaissance to stop this vakhkanaliya? Cowards, no words.

      You are now simply rumors, because besides the information from the OBS, there is simply no other! Only one question - did you personally see the bodies of the dead? Or took part in that battle? ??

        The Russian Foreign Ministry officially confirmed the death of 5 Russians, not military personnel of the RF Armed Forces, and a number of wounded. This is from the words of the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Zakharova Maria Vladimirovna. Apparently - she personally saw and participated in that battle. All questions to her.

        “As already noted, there are Russian citizens in Syria who went there of their own free will and for different purposes. It is not the business of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to evaluate the competence and legality of their decisions. ... They were assisted to return to Russia, where, as far as we know, they are undergoing treatment at various medical institutions, ”the statement said.

        “According to preliminary data, we can talk about the deaths of five people, presumably, citizens of Russia. There are victims. But all this requires verification, in particular (and first of all, of course) of citizenship - whether they are all citizens of Russia or other countries, ”Zakharova emphasized.

    Judging by how events develop there and ridiculous losses, it must not only be removed from office, but also in the rank of demotion ...
