    The Bormaleis are somehow not particularly shy about cutting their heads on camera, but here they laid out a helmet as proof. Why didn't they photograph the shadow or the pit?

      Why do they need a pit? Everybody can see that the issue with Idlib has not been resolved by Russia for a year. It was not possible to bend the Turks, therefore the barmaley will become more impudent, undermining not the first column with our guys. The bombing of warehouses looks more like an act of powerlessness, and this cesspool in Idlib is still seething leaving an eternal hotbed of instability in the region, which will soon approach the 10-year date of the war.

      And I remember they said there would be no new Afghan, they don't even pay attention to reports of explosions, although not long ago a whole general died. This is clearly not normal.

        And where is the hurry?
        Syria is an excellent training ground for developing Russia's new weapons against Idlib militants ...

          Is this a mantra? Are we testing with the blood and deaths of our guys? We are talking about a constant military conflict in which our soldiers are dying. And which has been going on for several years. A lot of money is spent on the maintenance of the foreign contingent. Without any intelligible goals, the next freeze to the state of shooting killed and parted. If we declare the fight against terrorists, Idlib should be cleansed long ago.

          About the population of Donbass, everyone was also scored, the same format.

            Is that a mantra?

            What other mantra ... whatdo you really want our military to die on our territory in the war against the militants ... we have already passed this in the Caucasus ... no, if to fight with terrorists, then it is better to do it away from our borders.
            The farther away from Russia a terrorist is soaked in the toilet, the better for us ... in Syria, our military is doing exactly this ... you are confusing something dear hi It seems to me not by chance.

              We also heard this, only the question is not in the cannon fodder of which from year to year is not getting smaller, but in those who finance and organize all this. It is necessary to fight the reasons.
              This also applies to our Caucasus, if our economy were in a lively state, there would be no fresh influx to the barmaley from there. The whole problem is in the high birth rate (which year the Caucasus is leading in Russia in terms of these indicators) and the high unemployment rate (again, what year is the Caucasus leaders). This is how young people are recruited from year to year. It is necessary to fight the reasons.

              Talking about the fight on the approaches is not relevant when we are actually surrounded, in each direction, frozen foci. Who will solve these problems? They will not go anywhere, their descendants have a great legacy. Freezing is not the solution.

        Explosion proof! When each iron has a camera, presenting the helmet as an explosion is a bit odd.

      Things are good! But it looks like Assad sat on Russia's neck. He does not want to pay under contracts. But, in case of pressure, it will blackmail our military bases in Syria. East is a delicate matter. Throwing a partner is not considered a sin for them. From one of Trump's last speeches, it turns out that we saved his life with the blood of our military from privates to generals.

        Is it really ... the bases that we have in Syria for many years to come are worth nothing or what?

      and here, as evidence, they posted a helmet
      If there really was an undermining of the MTR fighter, then he was evacuated from the line, the helmet and so on were thrown so as not to waste time, the lack of MO comments can be explained by the dire state of the war. Let's wait and find out.

    It is not clear why the operation was carried out at all, after all, they decided to soak in the toilets, and not to be attached to the wrong place at the wrong time, as soon as they discovered it, they immediately destroyed it.

    The operation is complete. The goals were not achieved: the US controls the oil, Turkey controls the olive plantations.

      "In the post-conflict plans of the United States, Europe and Russia, there were three options for Syria."
      According to the plan proposed by the United States, gas from Qatar was to be transported through Saudi Arabia and Jordan, and then through Syria to Turkey, from where it would go to Europe, which would reduce Europe's dependence on Russian natural gas.
      The option, which Europe preferred, provided for the presence of observers-peacekeepers in Syria, as well as the involvement of experts on hydrocarbons from countries that are members of the UN Security Council. Such a policy would allow both pipelines (Qatar-Syria-Turkey and Iran-Iraq-Syria-Turkey) to develop organically over time. But here, too, Russia would be losing: this plan would allow the European Union to gradually restructure its system of sources of energy supplies in accordance with its strategy to reduce dependence on Russia.
      The option proposed by Russia - the only one left under discussion - provides for the complete restoration of the Iran-Iraq-Syria pipeline, through which Iranian and then Iraqi gas should be supplied through Syria to Europe. “This option is likely to also facilitate closer cooperation within the Forum of Gas Exporting Countries, but the US-Saudi bloc and Europe oppose this option.

    In addition, there was information that our Turkish friends reoriented their militants not even to Libya, but to Azerbaijan.

      outright misinformation. Kurds publish, Armenians replicate. What about the almost 100 thousandth army of Azerbaijan with modern weapons, a bunch of little-controlled militants in pickup trucks who do not know the area and do not know how to fight in the mountains? The Turkish press writes in response that the PKK sent its militants to help the Armenians. Information war.
