Syrian hectares: Russia expands military base "Khmeimim"

It became known that agreements have been reached between Moscow and Damascus to expand the Russian military base in Latakia. We are talking about the base of the Russian Aerospace Forces "Khmeimim". It was with her that the Russian counter-terrorist operation in the Syrian Arab Republic began in due time after a corresponding request for assistance from the Syrian authorities.


Now Damascus is transferring about 8 hectares of territory and water area for Russian use. This, as noted, will make it possible to place a medical and rehabilitation center (MRC) in the province of Latakia. aviation groups of the Russian Federation. The center will allow conducting high-tech activities in the field of medicine. In turn, this will make it possible to provide qualified and, again, high-tech assistance to servicemen directly at the place of service - without the need for urgent sending to clinics of the Russian Federation (where possible).

Meanwhile, the situation in Syria has escalated significantly in recent days.

Recall that some time ago in the province of Idlib, an explosion occurred on the route of the Russian-Turkish patrol (the explosion thundered under a Turkish armored car, according to other sources, the armored vehicle was fired upon from a grenade launcher). A Russian general was killed in the province of Deir ez-Zor this week, and several more servicemen were injured.

After that, it became known about the missile attack on the American military base in the same Deir ez-Zor, and then about the loss of two of its drones by the United States.

    It is quite logical that the base would have its own MRC. And the drones, they say, were shot down by the Turks.

        Hardly about the base. And the drones were shot down over Idlib. And this is not me saying, these are reports from Syria. According to the media, this may be revenge for the frequent attacks of the Yankees on Turkish militants.

              drones usually fly at altitudes that are unattainable for a manned missile system, and the heat radiation there is so minimal that the homing head is unlikely to capture the heat trail

                The video is not specified. Purely visually, according to the video, the drone is in sight, and the rocket is clearly not air. But again, this is my personal opinion, I could be wrong.

        Everything is relative. The transition from active, destructive hostilities to a period when sometimes somewhere out there, for someone there, something flew in, is considered by many to be a peaceful period, in their own way they are right.

      Sorry Alexander, but you are probably familiar with the adage about whose business it is to count other people's money.
      Do not be disturbed by the cost of material and financial resources of the Russian Federation. It is unambiguous that the leadership of the Russian Federation assessed its financial, material and military capabilities before making a decision.
      Your dream of creating a Greater Israel, from the Nile to the Euphrates, has gone into the sand.
      Bashar al-Assad controls barely 60% of the territory on Russian bayonets

      How sad are you for the president of Syria? You have your own prime minister under the article governs the state.
      Show concern for your fellow citizens. Expose Nitanyaga.
      and the end of the mess is not in sight

      This mess has three chefs. And your Mossad is among them.
      Russia is rich. Her "brotherly help" will be enough for everyone and for new Saddam, and for Muammars, and Maduro, and even asads will remain. In the world, such brothers - to feed not to feed, to hell.

      "Brotherly help" is over. In the regions you indicated, Russia defends its geopolitical interests.
      Just have time to shake the power over the pockets of temporary companions, and to patch up holes in yourself.

      "By August 7, Russia's international reserves amounted to $ 600,7 billion, the Bank of Russia said. This will break the record of $ 598,1 billion set in August 2008, on the eve of the global financial crisis."
      So do not worry about the Russian purse.
      And Russia uses temporary fellow travelers in its own interests.
      Good luck. hi

This is what the USSR did, and the RF continues in the same way. Keep up the good work for your own pleasure and for the joy of local uryakalka.

        After the Russians have dragged five thousand kilometers to "defend their geopolitical interests" under my window, please do not be surprised that Israel has something to say and what to do about this. For this, he has the right strength and tools available.

        It's easier for us with Netanyahu.
        In the next elections, if voters do not vote in his favor, he will immediately go through the forest. Point.

        If you still do not know, then in terms of educational program I will inform you that Israel made its last territorial acquisition 53 (fifty-three, Max!) Years ago and 97% of which has long been returned to sane neighbors - Egypt and Jordan under the terms of peaceful contracts. hi

          Scoundrels and parasites - this is your subjective opinion. With this phrase you are trying to accuse the leadership of the Russian Federation of immorality and immorality. So you don't get distracted from your ISIS brainchild.
          The leader of which is a staff agent of the Mossad, Shimon Elliot.

          As for "the creation of a Greater Israel, from the Nile to the Euphrates," it would be high time to leave behind the hardened and mossy political clichés from the editorials of Pravda.

    Wounds once a month and for this a huge hospital? They won't do that. It is easier to keep an EMERCOM plane with a field hospital there, or to dismantle it into a building. It focuses specifically on injury. It can be used to combat some specific diseases in an unusual climate. There were problems with this in Afghanistan.

      More wounds, now two at once.
      And there may be more difficult situations even with one clash and sabotage.
      And diseases, especially in another country and a different climate and microbiological situation, happen much more often.
      Our military personnel must feel protected.
      And there was no talk of any "huge" hospital.
      We are talking about the territory and water area of ​​8 hectares.
      And this will largely be the adjacent security zones, which will be appropriately equipped.

    The question remains unanswered: What are American troops doing in Syria? If these landsknechts get out of their way (things are in the United States), then peace will come to Syria.

        American troops in Syria are the only destabilizing a factor not only in this country, but in the Middle East as a whole!
