"The Russian military in earflaps, Americans in helmets and with weapons": on the network comment on the photo from Syria


Photos appeared on the network that depict a meeting of US troops and the Russian military police in northern Syria. This is the very case that was described in a number of media as "an obstacle on the part of the Americans to patrol the Russian military police."


The photo shows that the conversation between Russians and Americans took place on one of the roads. According to recent reports, this is the area of ​​the highway in the area of ​​the Syrian city of Kobani, which is mainly inhabited by ethnic Kurds. At the end of last year, the US military contingent left its base in the area, effectively abandoning the facility and part of the property. Now, Americans periodically appear on the route along which patrols are conducted by the Russian and Turkish military.

This photo is commented by both Russian and American netizens. It is noted that Russian troops do not have weaponsBut the Americans with their automatic rifles do not part even in such a situation.

A few comments from users of social networks:

The military of the Russian Armed Forces - in earflaps and without guns, but the Americans - a complete set: rifles, helmets and even black glasses. The bazooka on his shoulder is still missing.

Judging by the photo, there are also Turkish soldiers. Apparently, this was a meeting of a joint Russian-Turkish patrol with the Americans. And the Americans tried to find out from the Turks: "Guys, who are you for?" But the Russians entered the conversation in hats: "Depart, they are with us."

And on the left in the frame are Kurdish teenagers who do not understand in any way who to throw stones at in such a situation.

        Exactly, besides, there is not a single soldier in earflaps, of course, in this photo. Just one comment from a half-blind person ... and away we go (earflaps, felt boots, sweatshirts). In the photo there is a helmet, a bracelet and glasses.

    The military forces of the Russian Federation - in caps with earflaps and without machine guns, but the Americans - a complete set ...
    Well I do not know. Patrolling in a cap with earflaps and without weapons is somehow not comme il faut.
    Maybe it was not a patrol at all, but some kind of logistical support?
    And even in this case, in the war zone it is somehow not clearly understood.

        Although the likelihood that any of the groups will come to blows is very small, so I think everyone is friendly or professional. No one wants a military incident between the US and Russia. I believe that they probably feel a slight tingling sensation in their eggs, which comes from the realization that you are looking at the only people who pose a real threat to really ruin your day if they suddenly decide to attack you.

        I doubt that it’s intense, these guys are all professionals and understand that they will almost never shoot at each other 100%

        Imagine if these two countries could work together as allies. The possibilities are endless.

        We really work together a lot, which goes unnoticed, especially in space, our two countries have much closer ties than people understand.

        I hope they can return to the days of cooperation.

        I think it's impossible. The interests of the United States and Russia are directly in conflict. In Poland, the Baltic states, Ukraine and related interests to the EU.

      Patrol in a cap with earflaps and without weapons

      Perhaps these were negotiations, and so the negotiators, on the Russian side, to demonstrate peaceful intentions, were without weapons.
      American soldiers are strictly instructed to be equipped if their soldier is injured in the war and at the same time he does not have a uniform flashlight, he will not be paid insurance as a violator of the charter. They are always in service with a crew. like penguins.

          Well, in Crimea everything was much more interesting. And not even so much “body kit” and “cool” as efficiency and speed. And here, it seems, no one was going to fight, is there any point in dragging with you from the drina technique? Was anyone even going to shoot someone in theory?

            Maybe not the topic. When the Turks shot down our plane, someone also thought that they would not shoot down and there was no escort? Good should be with fists and there is nothing to be embarrassed to demonstrate. The Yankees are also apparently confident that weapons in this situation will not come in handy however ..

              Well, if escort could prevent getting into someone else's VP - then yes. Otherwise, it would have smelled like a full-fledged conflict. Moreover, with a member of NATO, as it were, and far from the weakest.

              With regard to this situation, the Yankees must always compete in full body kit. However, this whole kit would be absolutely not useful to them if it came to a collision and they began to water the BTR-80s, which regularly flash on a photo in Syria in MP stripes.

                I agree, the photo does not reflect all the realities. By plane. Are you sure that the temptation would be to attack the Turk if he knew that he would get a splash? Pokryshkin failed two Mustangs that tried to attack him and what led to the war?

                  You are comparing incomparable things. Yes, I’m sure that the Turks would attack, even if they knew that they would get spit. Because judging by the decision to shoot down the plane, the instructions were clear and unambiguous. Therefore, I am talking about a possible conflict.

        If there is nothing behind the scenes, then in general it can be assumed that ours came on foot. Anything can be behind the scenes, since the negotiators were not afraid to leave without weapons. In my opinion, they show so much contempt for Americans. Behind can a tank column stands

          In the database zone, a fighter in a patrol without a weapon

          This is not a database zone, at that moment it was negotiations.

          a demonstration of peace, then, in my opinion, is too careless.


          Yes, really, two soldiers without weapons, undercover, units, is it too too careless? And when you hold out your hand to say hello, it may also be too careless.

    Patrolling in a cap with earflaps and without weapons is somehow not comme il faut.
    And you didn’t think that ours left weapons in the vehicles specifically, so that the “strongest and most courageous” with a fright (a tense psychological situation to which they often refer) did not open fire? After all, then we would have to wet the Americans and take them prisoner.

No matter how I would like to show peaceful intentions, but the equipment and weapons should be with you soldier we won’t go far, remember the times when you step into an outfit by mail even if you are on the orderly, at least on duty, you don’t take off your bayonet-knife even during rest.

    Amers fighter must be in full gear. If he is injured and it turns out that the armor was not on him, then the insurance disappears.
    As ours with this - I do not know.
    And yes, it is not clear how many Russians are in the photo. I kind of counted 2, it is very muddy. But what is behind the photographer’s back is not at all clear. How many are there, these Russians? Branch, platoon, company?
    And how are they equipped there? And where did you come from?

    Americans are contract soldiers. In the contract, the contractor signs that if something happens to him, and
    he was not wearing a helmet, body armor or he was without a weapon, then insurance will not pay the family compensation for injuries or death.

        So, probably, the contracts of the Moscow Region do not prescribe that you need to walk in a helmet with weapons. Each country has its own way.
        When I was driving a jeep, we had only two options: 1) either get off the jeep with a rifle with a magazine inside and in a harness-patronage (combat option), or 2) with a rifle unloaded and one magazine in your pocket (peaceful option).

    It is noted that Russian troops do not have weapons, but the Americans do not part with their automatic rifles even in such a situation.
    Even if the helmet strap is not on the chin, or your hands without gloves, there is no talk about the rifle. There’s a fine for everything and not a small one. The service ended, went out the gate, forgot about the army until the morning.

      “Naturally,” I answered.

    "Guys, who are you for?" But the Russians entered the conversation in hats: "Depart, they are with us."

    This is in Russian, short and clear ... good

They talk to the Americans without weapons. speaks from that. that mattresses are not afraid and do not provoke. especially. that our others are keeping the enemy under control. read at gunpoint.

    To put on a uniform and walk unarmed - yes they hold you for cannon fodder !!! You can not carry weapons - sit at home.

    I don’t understand one thing, where did you see Russian soldiers in earflaps? Is this such a way to take the trouble with the Americans? Yes, I’m more than sure that the Russians are equipped no worse than the Americans.

    If you weren’t fully equipped and armed according to the charter, insurance should not be paid if yes

    And yet, the main question was not raised: where did our ladies hide from immodest glances? Could let them go for a walk, relieve the need while they are trending ...

      With a bad ending, they won’t take them into the army (the medical board will not miss). And why put skates on him?

          "your ram-like gays!" ?? - Hee, hee yours? Before you appeared on the branch, I did not know that you were so concerned. If you have such a problem, then most likely they are yours.

    I wildly apologize, but did someone remember that there is a 6B28 helmet in the equipment of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, which comes with a “figure” cover with “ears” ?!

      And what is the use of hanging on the backs and shoulders of mattresses? This is designed for the Papuans, and then, I already think, and they consider it an outspoken thing not to kick the grief of the American fagots in military uniform.

    these are the Yakuts in earflaps, they are from the GRU FEBO special forces (who participated in the Crimean spring).
    they were recently transferred from the Khabarovsk garrison.
    They didn’t even have time to change clothes and take helmets.
    The Yakuts have always beaten amers and will beat.
