        and here they say
        Reports of the death in Syria of the General of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation also refuted sources of Interfax in law enforcement agencies. According to the interlocutor of the agency, such messages are a provocation.

        “A man under that name and in the rank of general never existed, respectively, reports of his death can only be nonsense and fiction,” he said.

        http://news.rambler.ru/15039541/
        then he is retired, then such a general does not exist at all !!
        This is alarming!

    The Free Syria Army reported on August 8 that its fighters had killed the General of the Russian Army Vladimir Petrovich Kojaev, who was the military adviser to the Minister of Defense and the Chief of the General Staff of the Syrian Armed Forces.

    According to the Al-Arabiya TV channel, his translator Ahmad Hayk was killed along with the Russian commander. The rebels say the operation proves the role Russia plays in suppressing the uprisings against Bashar al-Assad.

    Opponents of the regime note that the general was eliminated during a joint operation of several opposition militias. Cards and operational documents relating to the Free Syria Army also fell into the hands of the opposition. Official Russian sources have not yet commented on these reports.

    Note that recently, conflicting information about the Russian military presence in Syria has appeared in the media. On July 25, the Israeli Yediot Ahronot reported, citing sources in the US administration, that Moscow had begun preparations for the inevitable fall of the Syrian regime.

    As stated in the publication, Russia began dismantling intelligence stations located in Damascus and on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights. Preparations are underway for the withdrawal of scouts, technicians and military advisers who are concentrated in the coastal region of Latakia and Tarsus.

    On July 26, the commander of the Russian Navy, Vice Admiral Fyodor Chirkov, said that Russia was not going to leave Syria. "The logistics center in Tartus will be preserved. It is necessary to provide ships and vessels," he said.

    On August 3, Russian media reported that three large amphibious ships would soon go on a trip to the Syrian coast. Each ship carries a reinforced company of marines - 120 soldiers - with full support, including armored personnel carriers.

    Syrian Opposition: Qatar and Saudi Arabia supply us with weapons, but this is not enough

    publication time: 7 August 2012 g., 14: 17
    last updated: August 7, 2012 14:17



    A spokeswoman for the opposition Syrian National Council has confirmed that foreign nations are supplying arms to opposition fighters opposing the government forces of President Bashar al-Assad.

    Basma Kodmani said that the soldiers of the armed opposition groups are in desperate need of weapons, and are ready to turn to anyone to get what they need. Deliveries are currently organized by Qatar and Saudi Arabia, as well as, to a lesser extent, Libya.

    At the same time, the spokeswoman said, despite this assistance, government forces maintain significant superiority in everything related to weapons. According to her, the opposition needs more modern and effective weapons, primarily air defense systems to combat Assad’s aviation.

    Last week, Syrian National Council chairman Abdelbaset Sida has already called on allies to help opposition fighters with weapons, including air defense and anti-tank missiles, as well as heavy weapons.

        If this incident occurred with a Russian officer (although there is already a refutation of our Ministry of Defense that we don’t have such a thing) then this gives reason to introduce our military contingent there, and they will not distribute lollipops to the bandits there.

              Mr. Steam locomotive, well, not quite so, the Sandinists, Viet Cong and other comrades did a pretty good job. After all, Kurds don’t need much - cornets and needles, and the Syrians can handle it anyway, if only Churkin covers it up. Better than any S-400, Churkin can protect the country's sky.

            As for the mercenaries .. well, I don’t know, this is a bit too much, because the mercenary is fighting for the one who pays the most, therefore these fruits are easily bought out. wink
            But at the expense of the Kurds ... by the way, Assad himself is already taking steps in this direction (autonomy of the Kurds)

The very meaning of actions through the UN in which we have VETO is lost. They play different scenarios in order to accuse Russia of all sins with the subsequent position of the device at the UN.

      - what are you talking about? what revenge? on the contrary, this will cause attacks from the entire West and the Arab world! If Russia admits that it "lent" its general to Assad, we will get bold retaliatory actions that will allegedly be justified!

    if this is true, then in my place I would have hidden my body far away and prayed that Russia would not know about it - BUT SO IN THE BEST, KNOW THE KILLING OF A RUSSIAN OFFICER !!!
    It is a pity that the Moscow Region did not play this trump card as it should - send a couple of dozen attack aircraft and attack helicopters themselves will give a refutation ... but it will only be too late

    In any case, the United States would have had such a statement to begin another democratization ...

    “There is no general in the Russian army by the name of Kodzhiev, and there are no generals who are similar to this name of the generals either in pronunciation or spelling,” a spokesman for the RIA Novosti military department said. He also suggested that if the information about the death of a military specialist is confirmed, it may be either a retired Russian military officer or a representative of some other country of the former USSR, immigrants from whom are called “Russians” in Syria.

    Kodzhiev’s documents indicate his date of birth - 1952 year. In accordance with the law on military duty and military service in force in Russia, up to 60 years only marshals, army generals, fleet admirals and colonel generals can serve.

    Soon, the Russian embassy in Damascus also denied information about the death in Syria at the hands of the rebels of the Russian general. “This information is not true,” said a representative of the Russian diplomatic mission, without going into details.

    http://www.gazeta.ru/politics/2012/08/08_a_4716417.shtml

    "The source, repeatedly accused of lying and biased attitude, published a photo of a certain document, the authenticity of which and the circumstances of its receipt, to put it mildly, are extremely doubtful and are based only on the statement, I repeat, the sources repeatedly caught in lies and bias."

    A new turn in the business of the Russian general: he is alive and is in Moscow

    publication time: 11: 02
    last update: 11: 11



    A source in the Russian security forces told Interfax that Major General Vladimir Kozhiev, allegedly killed by Syrian rebels, is in Moscow, and his health is in perfect order.

    According to an official Russian representative, the general did indeed hold the post of adviser to the Syrian defense minister for military schools. However, he retired to the reserve and since then has not visited Syria.

    The fact that Kozhiev may be a retirement was also indicated by an anonymous representative of the Russian Ministry of Defense. After informing RIA-Novosti that the staff list of the Russian armed forces does not include a general with a similar name, he noted that he could also be a representative of one of the countries of the former USSR.

    Recall that on the morning of August XNUMX, the Al-Arabiya TV channel reported the death of the Russian general with reference to representatives of the Free Syrian Army. The rebels say the operation proves the role Russia plays in suppressing the uprisings against Bashar al-Assad.

    As proof, the TV channel showed the identity card of the "killed" military adviser. However, if the information from Russian sources is correct, these documents were most likely lost or left by Kozhiev in Syria and then stolen by the rebels.

    )))))) Reserve Major General Vladimir Petrovich Kuzheev, allegedly killed by militants in Syria, met with Russian journalists at the Russian Defense Ministry today and denied reports of his alleged death.

    "I thank the media for the great attention to my modest person. From a human point of view, I am very unhappy with the information about my alleged death in Syria. I am very concerned that this information has caused such great concern to my family, friends and acquaintances. Today is almost half a day at my phone never stops, "said the Russian general.

And what? Democracy. Freedom of choice! They slowly begin to understand that their authorities are pushing them. So the Raidings of the same RT are growing.
