Military Review

Okolosyriysky intrigue, or an information strike on Russia

Western information is literally overwhelmed with information about “Russian aggression” news portals, as well as publications of the Gulf countries. Over the past two weeks, information has been circulating in the Western press, which has been planted by high-ranking officials, that Russia is literally ready to support the "bloody regime of Bashar Assad" with all its might. At first, Moscow was accused of delivering the latest combat helicopters to official Damascus, then it suddenly “turned out” that almost a whole squadron of warships, bursting at the seams from special forces and marine corps that were packed in them, was going to the coast of Syria. Then came the information, which is called, from the field of non-science fiction: Russian troops are preparing together with the military units of China, Syria and Iran to conduct some military exercises on the territory of the Syrian Republic. The Arab television channel Al-Arabiya stated that Egypt, which still cannot recover from a series of revolutions, allowed Moscow to conduct its military vessels through the Suez Canal. In addition, the same means of mass disinformation is reported that about 90 thousand troops will participate in exercises of various orientations in literally all the settlements of Syria, where Syrian opposition leaders operate. In general, the words about a certain “anti-democratic" landing literally shocked the audience of this very Al-Arabia and, naturally, forced them to clench their fists and shake them in the direction of the "militaristic" Moscow, Tehran and Beijing.

The saddest thing is that all this nonsense is actively reprinted from one publication to another, and the people who read it all get the unequivocal impression that the Russian authorities are trying by all means to prevent the peaceful Syrian opposition, which with the active support of the main world democratizers trying to achieve a bright democratic future. Oh, these Russian half-welded semi-barbarians, average American citizens and British or Saudi Arabian citizens think, again they want to prevent the sun of the next popular revolution from rising in the Middle East.

In the course of such an information war, which, frankly, while it is far from being in favor of Russia, the West again and again (we will with some degree of irony include countries like Qatar and Saudi Arabia here) tries to achieve their interests even by such methods in Russia we are satisfied with the "dark". By the way, some Russian politicians are already eager to arrange this very “dark” one as a kind of “our answer to Chamberlain”. Only for the time being there are no truly significant answers from the Russian side that really took the West by surprise, no. One Sergey Lavrov is in a constant tone and after another injection of “data” from Hillary Clinton, John McCain and other “competent” sources, he tries to justify himself by stating that such information is fake.

The situation became even more complicated after the G-20 summit in the resort of Los Cabos, the Russian and American presidents held their talks. Putin and Obama spoke about the Syrian conflict in a fairly calm manner, allowing themselves real phrases on duty. Both expressed the hope that the confrontation in Syria would soon cease, only it was obvious that each of the presidents had their own thoughts in this phrase. The vision of the end of the Syrian conflict on the part of Barack Obama, obviously, gives the desire to solve the problem tested in Libya. Putin’s option is a continuation of the issuance of advances to the mission of Kofi Annan, which has lately been under intense pressure from outside. Well, it is not profitable, you know, to certain forces in the West, so that the Syrian conflict would gradually disappear.

We all remember very well that the mission of Annan initially really contributed to a certain reduction of tension on the Syrian land, but then there were two cases of mass killings of civilian Syrian residents, and from the mouth of the “peaceful opposition” he immediately heard the words that Assad was a tyrant and murderer order to cut the throat of one-year-old babies, old men and women.

In this regard, it becomes obvious that as soon as the Syrian conflict moves into a peaceful course, there will immediately be those who again press the gas pedal and drive this compound into a blank wall so that the noise from the impact and the glass breaks again throughout the world .

Many Russian analysts say that in this situation, when the information fronts are far from victories on the information fronts, they are behaving quite gently. “Nezavisimaya Gazeta” writes that such a “game of silence” with confidential smiles and attempts to bypass the sharp corners of a big problem only plays into the hands of those who do not want peace to prevail in Syria.

The journalists of the publication literally call for immediate action to prevent the development of such a scenario, which was in 2008 in South Ossetia. Then Mikhail Saakashvili decided to step over the Russian peacekeepers under Tskhinval, and now, according to journalists, the West can step over the last Russian stronghold on the Mediterranean - Tartus.

At the same time, information was received that Moscow decided to send two ships of the Black Sea at once to Tartus fleet: “Caesar Kunikov” and “Nikolai Filchenkov,” which clearly fueled the hype in Western publications and inspired those who spoke out for Russia to decide to openly display its position on Syria. However, literally right there began to appear refutation of data on the campaign of Russian military ships in Tartus. Ships, according to several news agencies at once, did not leave the Black Sea, and are not sent to the Syrian coast. After that, the impression was that disappointment came both in a number of Western media and in Russia. Some were worried that they could not once again accuse Russia of unleashing a military campaign on the side of Assad, while others thought that it was Moscow’s latest weakness.

In general, it is worth noting that so far everyone is aware of the problem, but only each of the parties is waiting for the first mistake of its opponent. This leads to what is called "playing in silence." Obviously, porridge will boil up with trebled force when someone nevertheless decides to take a serious step regarding the question of chopping the Syrian Gordian knot. The main thing is that it does not reach the point that Russia in this case would be taken to death and decide on any action, if only to close the Syrian topic once and for all. Since the authorities have decided to keep quiet and smile, then you should be patient and wait for the first miscalculation from that side. What this expectation will lead to is another question, but we must also be able to wait. Mkhatovskaya pause, as theatergoers say, often costs more than a verbose acting tirade ...

      Russia really has no special information leverage over the West. If in the old days the USSR could appeal in the West to the indignant pro-socialist-minded public, now any speech by Putin or Lavrov is like a cry crying out in the desert. To save Syria, Iranian troops must be sent there. And so - a disastrous business.

      Well, if aggressive Russian ships

      At one time, "dear" Leonid Ilyich, from whom everyone is now molding an idiot, did the following
      In the Middle East conflict of 1973, the USSR behaved as follows
      it was decided to carry out maneuvers in the ZakVO with the participation of aviation, which all foreign analysts did not fail to note. This action was viewed by them solely as the determination of the USSR to send its troops to the Middle East. Along with the exercises, some Soviet units were put on high alert. Foreign researchers describe them as seven Soviet airborne divisions (about 50 thousand people). some of the divisions were brought to a state of increased combat readiness on October 17-18, or immediately with the beginning of the war. In addition, it notes the fact that Soviet planes carrying military cargoes for Egypt and Syria have ceased their flights and were returned to Soviet airfields. From this it was concluded that these aircraft were supposed to be used for the transfer of Soviet troops to the Middle East. But the possibility was not denied that the planes were returned in connection with the planned completion of the "air bridge." On October 22, information that radioactive radiation was recorded on Soviet transports heading to Egypt. From this, it was concluded that the Soviet Union may have sent a nuclear weapon to Egypt, namely nuclear warheads for the R-17 missiles. In addition to putting the Airborne Forces units on high alert and conducting maneuvers in the ZakVO, it was decided to increase the size of the Soviet Mediterranean squadron. ... This was done in response to American actions - since the US 6th Fleet was decided to be reinforced by the attack aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy, located in the North Atlantic. Thus, the size of the Mediterranean flotilla increased from 60 to 84 ships (however, take into account that 40% of them were auxiliary vessels and support vessels, which was due to the lack of a developed infrastructure of naval bases, as a result of which the 5th squadron was forced to "carry everything with itself"). As a result, the 5th squadron consisted of 51 warships, while the 6th fleet included 48 warships.

      October 8 - Leonid I. Brezhnev sent the following letter to R. Nixon: "... I personally and my comrades have a crisis of confidence that all the correspondence that has been going on for a week and all the assurances both to us and to the Egyptian side that that measures are being taken to a ceasefire and the implementation of Security Council resolutions, especially under our auspices, of which we have been given written confirmation on behalf of the President, in fact, was the support of the Israeli military, which continues to behave provocatively, clearly with a certain I would say a naked target ...

      Most of the socialist countries - allies of the USSR in the Warsaw Treaty Organization supported the actions of the Soviet Union in organizing aid to Arab countries. The countries that make up the ATS did not participate in hostilities, although a significant number of military specialists from Bulgaria, East Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia were in Egypt and Syria.

      Bulgaria and East Germany organized on their territory the training and education of Arab military personnel. Czechoslovakia supplied the Arab countries with some types of weapons. Bulgaria allowed the use of its airspace by Soviet transport aircraft carrying weapons to the Middle East.

      Yugoslavia, although it was not a member of the police department, helped the Arab countries, through the territory of Yugoslavia flights of Soviet aircraft with weapons were carried out. SFRY itself sold some types of weapons to the countries of the anti-Israeli coalition.

Yes, and we really love to help everyone "against the United States" and "world imperialism."

        For America, our "presence" in Syria is useful because, after the defeat of 3 by force, one could justify a clash with Russia in the same way as the failure of the release of the hostages of the American embassy in 80 was explained by a helicopter accident.
        From the Russian point of view, we are neither friends of the Nazis nor Zionists, but we must fight with our own disconnection - the shadows of the Chekists scare and prevent us from communicating, without which the people are turned into a herd of loners.

The USSR, of course, behaved much freer in the region, but the USSR got involved in the war in Afghanistan, which the USSR to a great extent crippled, and also set up a significant part of the Islamic world against the Soviets and subsequently against Russia. Why do they step on the same rake a second time - Saudi Arabia and Qatar want to build a big caliphate, let the Muslims tie up their navel on the back of the head according to the results of their own crooked-up creativity.

            Guys, why did you get the idea that Russia will be weakened by the Syrian conflict? It is clear that there is little good, but effectively using your weapon, and in good hands, it will raise the prestige and reliability of its owner and manufacturer to the top, and secondly, you still need to see who will weaken someone, if it’s amers who are already the throat with Afghanistan and Iraq got bogged down, not to mention that its roof is already smoking, Europe is almost all raging in financial and street pogroms ... and it’s not necessary to fight especially if they’ll vryat NATO climbed up with Russians, it’s troublesome, but if they climb, then this is where the military equipment of all categories should work, and the Syrian armed forces at the forefront themselves will cope with minimal instruction and coordination among themselves on goals.
            After all, no one is hinting that the support consists in rushing with a naked torso under a tank with a box of matches, and it is clear to everyone that the Syrians will cope with the banderlog themselves if they are sure that the rear is securely covered by comrades and there is no need to look back. Yes, their military spirit will rise tenfold, and if a Slav talks about Russian valor in the Great Patriotic War over a fire at dawn with 100 grams of our "Wheat", then the Syrian soldier will tear barefoot with his teeth. You just need to support them, but support them shoulder to shoulder, eye to eye and with an abusive word, then it will be the case.

            And the ships to Syria for evacuation, this is a duck, even today in the afternoon on the radio broadcast. If it’s a duck, then only to block another operation, more intriguing.

So, it’s worth only shaking a stick from afar and they will not touch anyone, only croaking will be a lot and a long time, and you have to wave it periodically!

Arabs boldly shoot from behind a corner or shelter, and in a head-on collision they are historically weak (that the crusaders hollowed and trampled them into the ground, that the Israelis, having smaller aircraft in 3 wars, hollowed them). You can’t underestimate the enemy, but you shouldn’t respect too much ...

    Personally, I was most struck by Putin's face when he answered questions at the final press conference. With all his appearance, he said: "How did you all get me with your moronic questions and initiatives." And about Obama, he answered absolutely precisely: in the United States, the president is just a talking monkey, on which nothing depends, strategic decisions in the development of the country are made by completely different people.
    And after the negotiations with Obama, it was clearly visible that it was not possible to agree and that the world will face hard times.

    In general, everything is much better stated here in this article: Russia - USA: Before the fight

    Everyone remembers what the result of the talks between Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama looked like. The leaders of the two countries could not look into each other's eyes. The moment of truth has come. The details of the meeting between the leaders of the two countries begin to leak out and many still obscure things become clear. Why both presidents did not have a face. Today we can say with confidence that today the two powers are more close than ever to fatal actions.

    Everything turned out to be very simple, realizing the impossibility of obtaining a resolution on Syria, Washington is betting on pressure or attack Iran. After all, it is not Syria that is of interest to Washington, but Iran. The United States is deploying troops to Kuwait, from which it is only 80 kilometers from the border with Iran. The very troops that Obama promised to withdraw from Afghanistan will now be redeployed to Kuwait. The first 15 thousand troops have already received orders for redeployment. In the editions of the Western media travel mood reigns. Everything is moving towards a serious deterioration of the situation. President Vladimir Putin said quite a bit saying that he would not have gone into intelligence with anyone, having laughed off jokingly that he had "been out of service for a long time."

    The world did not understand his jokes, but was wary. In this joke, as indeed in all others, there is some truth, sometimes a very large proportion. But actually it was necessary to carefully listen to what the Russian president says. It seems that the US marines were seriously going to oppose the Russian paratroopers. At the mere thought of what might happen, cold sweat appears on the body. This terribly dangerous arrangement of ground forces is almost guaranteed to end in a collision.

    This first step - the redeployment of 15 thousand marines, may not be the most obvious intention, because in the end you won’t start a war with such forces, but if the next military party follows, you can confidently talk about the impending threat.

    In the meantime, in fact, this relocation plays more into Russia's hands than America. Of course, now oil will creep up, the risks are becoming higher. Russia will turn out to be the main beneficiary in this show, because it is always good to be a seller when the price of your product is high and it is certainly unprofitable to buy oil, when you yourself “raised” the price of it. In this case, the US budget will bear additional burdens.

    Another truth in this story is that not one of the presidents will be able to retreat in this confrontation. If Obama backs down, he will bury his election because Americans don’t like wimps (and who loves them?). So Obama will have to come up with something to stay with a “beautiful face”.

    Putin cannot retreat either. In addition to geopolitical interests, there is an expectation among Russian citizens that their president this time will not give up, as he never gave up before. No wonder they voted for him and entrusted him to build a strong Russia. Putin cannot deceive the expectations of his citizens, he never really cheated those who voted for him, and it seems that this time he is also going to demonstrate his very advanced qualities as a leader, perhaps even a crisis manager.

    The case could possibly be resolved peacefully if the presidents of the two countries announced some new idea, program, joint project of the two states. In this case, no one would dare to reproach their president, because two countries would benefit from this and the whole world would become safer. Here both presidents would have won. But such a project still needs to be invented. Judging by the faces of Obama and Putin, there is no such project. But there is a growing disagreement.

    In this case, Obama's career is a big question, Putin’s career does not threaten anything. Putin has already passed the elections, and Obama is still ahead.

    However, as always in such cases, you need to look at the details. They are sometimes very eloquent. According to some reports, the nuclear submarines of the two two most powerful fleets - the Northern and the Pacific, in the coming days may receive a combat mission to take an attack position in neutral waters near the mainland of the United States. So it was already earlier, when in 2009 two nuclear missile carriers surfaced in different places off the east coast of the United States. This was done intentionally in order to indicate his presence.

    The report of an American journalist and military specialist looks strange. Then he said that these boats are fearless, because there are no intercontinental missiles on them. It remains only to understand why a boat located 200’s nautical miles from the coast has intercontinental ballistic missiles if its full-time P-39 covers the distance to 1500 nautical miles.

    The R-39 solid-fuel missiles with three-stage marching engines used by the D-19 complex are the largest submarine-launched missiles with 10 separate nuclear warheads of 100 kilograms each. Even one such missile can lead to a global catastrophe for the whole country, aboard the 2009 Shark submarine that surfaced in the 941 year, 20 units are conventionally located. Given that there were two boats, the optimistic mood of the American commentator on this event is simply incomprehensible.

    The question may arise, why now talk about what happened in 2009. I think there are parallels here. On August 5, 2009, when the military events of the 08.08.08 war were still fresh in memory, serious pressure was put on Russia. The orders of the Russian authorities to leave Abkhazia and South Ossetia were almost dictated by orders. Then all the events revolved around Georgia. On July 14, 2009, a US Navy destroyer Stout entered Georgian territorial waters. Of course, this is putting pressure on the Russians. And then, after a fortnight, two boats surfaced off the coast of North America.

    If one of them was near Greenland, the second surfaced under the very nose at the largest naval base. Norfolk Naval Base is located just 250 miles northwest of the point of ascent, but it may be indicative that the boat surfaced nevertheless closer to the coastline of the state of Georgia (the former Georgian SSR is now called Georgia, in the English manner.) there are in a special way these two events possibly intersect. You sent a ship to us in Georgia (Georgia), well, so get our submarine from your Georgia.

    It looks like some kind of hellish joke from which no one would laugh. By this comparison of events, the author wants to show that Putin does not need to think and have to give in to Syria, where the U.S. Navy is ten times more representative than the Russian Navy in Tartus, even after the arrival of Russian paratroopers there. Today the war may be such that defeating Russia in Syria, one can again be surprised off the coast of Georgia. This is well understood at the Pentagon. Americans know how to understand the meaning of what has been said, and even better, they understand the meaning of what is shown.

    Thus, one should not expect that Putin will give up his plans in Syria. The only thing that Putin can make to take a step back is truly normal human relations. Naive Russians still believe in friendship. The author of these lines is already tired of repeating to his American colleagues and writing in his articles: Russians in general are best able to make friends and fight. Whatever the American president would prefer to choose from this in the Russian version, it will always be done "heartily and on a grand scale."

    America respects only power. If we give Syria to us just do not reckon with. And there will be no more negotiations. The question is what Russia is ready to do in the event of an arrogant NATO invasion. I think the solution is to gain time and let Assad deal with the opposition mercenaries. He just sucks something while it turns out

      Assad will not succeed, every day new militants come from Turkey, the Turks want to destroy Syria most of all. This is their national and state goal, domination in the territory of the former Ottoman Empire. Israel needs to remove Iran; America needs cheap oil. The war will be and will be this summer, when the Americans will concentrate their forces and supply of resources for 2 months of the war. It is clear that the blow will be massive and sudden. Why are so many destroyers and aircraft concentrated there? 500 tomahawks + 150-200 bombers will destroy air defense, government agencies, ZKP and, most importantly, disconnect. An official appeal for help will be received in Russia after 4-5 hours from the start of the war, the moment is missed, as in Georgia. It was easier and closer there, if it had been possible to blow up the Roki tunnel, all help would not have come. In a day there would be US troops.
      And who will allow to fly to Syria through the territory of Turkey, Iraq, Azerbaijan and GEORGIA, and if they destroy an IL-76 full of landing, it will be necessary to pave the way with blood. And this is a full-fledged 3rd world, you see.
      It is clear that the Iranians and Russians will not betray the Syrians, but how far will they go? Will they be able to inflict damage on the aggressor on their bases, on the territory of 3 countries? The only way to stop the amers is to deprive them of cola, a warm crib and a clean toilet ....
      Personally, I see it this way, on the G20 Putin personally wanted to understand who on which side would fight and the allied campaign we do not have much from that is so gloomy.
      As for the submarines, they have long been under the constant eye of a new torpedo tested in Kursk.
      Long-range aviation is extremely outdated and Tu160 - 16 units, and all at the airfield in Engels - will be destroyed with one raid by the Raptor, most likely they will break through the air defense of the South-East Military District.
      Strategic Missile Forces - the gut is thin, there is hardly anyone on Earth who can give the order for a nuclear attack. This will be the last trump card.

      mmda I do not want to believe the facts and it remains to rely on the strength of spirit of the Syrians - a turning point in terms of the Arab spring. Russia had already surrendered Syria, if not surrendered, had long ago sent warships to Tartus + 20-30 S300 and BUK M2 complexes.

      We'll have to sit and see if Syria can use chemical weapons and not drift Iran to mine the Suez Canal.

        To begin with, the Raptor cannot strike high-precision weapons on the ground, and the bomb load is not enough to break through air defense and destroy shelters. At the same time, there are no bases for the amers from which the Raptor could not only break through the air defense but also complete the mission and return back. The range is not enough. You do not think that they will give him refueling over the territory of the Russian Federation. Then you at least present how an organized structure for the protection of strategic aviation bases is organized. And how the Raptors will shine over the Russian Federation in a continuous coverage area near Moscow. Such a blow will mean the beginning of the use of nuclear weapons, this is a fact. And there’s not some kind of torpedo, don’t believe the media there will not write such a thing.

    Syria is a logical continuation of the advancement of American interests to the borders of RUSSIA. Nothing is new under the moon. Let us recall the 19th century and the conflict of interests in the Middle East between RUSSIA and Britain. The uprising in the Caucasus. Local wars with Persia. Russian-Turkish wars and as the apotheosis of the British landing in the Crimea. Britain, like the USA, has no friends, but interests. China has interests. Even Mongolia has interests. And only RUSSIA has “friends” who have their own interests. Therefore, these same “friends”, as soon as their interests allow, RUSSIA is sold. And Bashar al-Assad is no exception. Therefore, RUSSIA must spit amicably on a showdown inside SYRIA, and maintain its interest, namely the last naval base in the Mediterranean Sea. In general, you need to study history and learn from past mistakes. Once again I repeat: "Nothing is new under the moon"

Let's imagine for a moment that the world ruling elite has decided to restart the global economy and remove all hotbeds of tension in the world to ensure a happy and peaceful life for the entire population of the Earth. What is needed for this? And quite a bit - 2-3 nuclear-powered ships that have discharged their ammunition into the United States. After that, I agree, there will be a short period of instability, but the whole world will revise the value systems and ensure successful growth and development for many centuries to come. Maybe this is the deep plan of fomenting war and drawing Russia into conflict. I'd like to believe in the great role of Russia in stabilizing the world and developing human values.

    In the early 70s, we reached a very expensive price for strategic parity with the United States, but in the advocacy field we could not. And now they are often unconvincing. There is no turmoil in Morocco, no (monarchy) in Jordan, no in the UAE and Saudi Arabia (the same), and Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Syria have blazed. To find flies would be honey. It is clear when there is a reason - everyone who is not lazy will climb. Most likely, Assad, sooner or later will not stand - the opposition has painfully spun. Papa ate grapes, and his son's teeth are on edge.

    I read the comments. Smiled! But seriously, the guys are more careful, otherwise I look, many have already begun to fight. But I think that all this can be attributed to children's maximalism. With the fact that you can’t surrender Syria, otherwise we will finally lose our face - I agree. GDP is trying to keep the situation from sliding into confrontation, but is it possible ...? Unfortunately, there is a lot of chatter, but there is no serious system analysis. I really hope that nevertheless, our Russia will find the optimal way out of this difficult situation. Sincerely.
    P.S. Thank you so much for the article Alex.

    States are eagerly trying to impose Muslim governments in the countries of the Middle East in order to then recreate the likeness of the Caliphate. Then push it against the EU (there are already half of the Arabs). The United States at this time will trade in weapons, thereby pushing its death (state collapse) ... IMHO

    A wise special operation of trained government troops that they love is able to dunk any underground gangs.
    The experience is shown by the example of Chechnya Libya, Syria and other types of Palestinians in Israel

    Putin was reelected, and Obama has yet to do so. Obama, as it were, is asking Putin to bet on him, to give way over Syria or Iran. Obama needs a small victory. At the same time, to give Syria - to give up the arms market, and in Russia there are dozens of single-industry towns feeding from the production of weapons. Give Iran - give the last lever of pressure on the Arabs. And if tomorrow the US Arabs are asked to bring down the price of hydrocarbons to $ 35 (!!!), after purchasing long futures at current prices? Like in the year 86. Then the Russian Federation, and especially Kazakhstan, a full paragraph. what

    Some were worried that it was not possible once again to accuse Russia of unleashing a military campaign on the side of Assad, while others thought that it was Moscow’s latest weakness.

    Russia probably does the right thing, that it does not go on provocation of the Media of hysteria of the West, but what is silent is strategic silence, so that later, at the right moment, kaaaa ... yes

    Putin handed over or sold Syria, whoever likes it, but it was only infa that the British deployed a Russian ship carrying missiles and 3 ka-25 (exportk-24) into Syria.
    Russia sold all who it could, all allies, and then it is surprised that they treat it like that.
    There is no army, no fleet, but there are stools and huge accounts abroad with the leadership of Russia, so are they really going to trample against the owners, no.
    What the United States says, Putin will do it.
    And then Aniki-warriors gathered here, they defeated everyone, go to the Caucasus to fight.

      Russia, as the heir to the USSR, has an extremely rich experience in delivering weapons to anywhere in the world without restrictions on mass and quantity. And the fact that they deployed some kind of ship, babble, can you hear something about a false target? wink

      Russia sold all who it could, all allies, and then it is surprised that they treat it like that.

      Russia didn’t betray anyone, its former steering Gorbachev Yeltsin, mainly the USSR itself, was predicting Russia, in hell they should burn if he is

    The report of an American journalist and military specialist looks strange. Then he said that these boats are fearless, because there are no intercontinental missiles on them. It remains only to understand why a boat located 200’s nautical miles from the coast has intercontinental ballistic missiles if its full-time P-39 covers the distance to 1500 nautical miles.
    The R-39 solid-fuel missiles with three-stage marching engines used by the D-19 complex are the largest submarine-launched missiles with 10 separate nuclear warheads of 100 kilograms each. Even one such missile can lead to a global catastrophe for the whole country, aboard the 2009 Shark submarine that surfaced in the 941 year, 20 units are conventionally located. Given that there were two boats, the optimistic mood of the American commentator on this event is simply incomprehensible.

    In 2004, the last carriers of these missiles: TK-17 Arkhangelsk and TK-20 Severstal were put into reserve due to the lack of suitable missiles for service [3].

    Media is the field where information wars unfold. Their field is our field, you participate on your own or dragged it is not important.
    Now we need to let the duck go, that in defense of Syria from external invasion, Russia is sending a special contingent equipped with tools to ensure the fulfillment of this mission (air defense systems, helicopters, BMP tanks, armored personnel carriers), without specifics. Print in our media for credibility, Throw misinformation in their media for specifics, and Assad at this time blocks the terrorists and eliminates them.

    Since the authorities decided to keep silent and smile, then you should be patient and wait for the first miscalculation from that side. What this expectation will lead to is another question, but one must also be able to wait. The Mkhatov pause, as theater-goers say, often costs more than a verbose acting tirade ...

    Yes, but for some reason the West always wins in the information war! This must be taken into account, and not be silent!
