Shoigu summed up the results of the fifth anniversary of the military operation in Syria

Exactly five years ago, on September 30, 2015, Russia launched a military operation in Syria. The most important result of this operation, in addition to the destruction of terrorists, is the deployment of two military bases in the region. This was announced by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.


The head of the Russian military department, summing up the results of the military operation in Syria, said that in five years more than 133 thousand militants had been destroyed in Syria, including 4,5 thousand immigrants from the Russian Federation and the CIS countries. Russian pilots flew over 44 sorties, during which more than 133,5 terrorist targets, including fuel tankers, were destroyed. The Syrian government army, with the support of the Aerospace Forces, liberated 88% of the territory of Syria, having recaptured 1024 settlements from the militants.

The active phase of the Russian military operation lasted 804 days - from September 30, 2015 to December 11, 2017.

Over the five years of hostilities, all commanders of military districts, combined-arms armies, air force and air defense armies, commanders of divisions, brigades and regiments, 98% of the personnel of military police units, 90% of pilots, 78% of servicemen of engineering troops, more than half of the air defense specialists, more than 60% of the servicemen of the Russian Navy.

Shoigu called the deployment of two military bases the most important result of participation in hostilities in Syria: the Khmeimim airbase with modern infrastructure - a first-class airfield capable of receiving all types of aircraft, as well as a logistics center for the Navy in Tartus with a closed water area, the latest berths, complexes maintenance and minor repairs.

The most important result and advantage for us in the fight against terrorism in the Middle East was the deployment of two Russian military bases on the basis of the Russian-Syrian agreement in Syria on a permanent basis.

- he stressed.

Summing up, the minister added that the military operation in Syria was necessary not only to destroy the terrorists, but also to strengthen Russia's authority, increase international influence and thwart the plans of some countries to isolate Russia.

Sometimes in the discussions going on to this day, the question arises: did Russia do the right thing in taking on that difficult task? But each time it can be argued that the mission was necessary in Syria, and the decision to start a military operation was correct, if not the only possible

- the minister said.

      The Syrian army is fighting there practically without replenishment, and militants are sent there from all over the world. 4,5 thousand years from the former USSR alone were destroyed, and how many of them all came running, who else counted? In Syria, this fraternity was well thinned. But they could blow up trolleybuses and residential buildings in Russian cities

      ISIS military forces in Iraq and Syria at their peak in 2014
      was estimated at 100,000 armed fighters.
      ISIS suffered the main losses in Iraq in 2016 and 2017.
      Biggest battle: "Battle of Mosul" March 2016-June 2017.
      ISIS lost 2000-2500 fighters.
      ----
      I think the figure that Shoyga voiced is
      total number of fighters from all organizations killed in Syria by forces jointly:
      the Syrian government army, Russia, Iran, Turkey and Lebanese Hezbollah.
      Then everything roughly converges.

        Dear, your masters have turned Mosul into a city of the dead, along with the civilian population. There are still corpses in the streets.
        He had a battle.
        Mattresses for a cannon shot were not allowed to any journalists in Mosul while the city was being leveled to the ground. At the same time, when there were battles for Palmyra, the stench from the mattresses, and from your side, that the Russian Aerospace Forces were killing peaceful people, there were three cars.
        And tell me that it was not so.

          Siege of Mosul? Of course not.
          The siege lasted for a whole year, because the Igilovtsev gradually squeezed
          from the outskirts to the city center. No bombing.
          And when they were squeezed in the Old City, they presented an ultimatum: "surrender."
          But there was their holiest mosque, where they proclaimed the Islamic State.
          ISIS refused to surrender.
          They mined all the old neighborhoods along with the residents.
          When the assault began, they began to blow up residential buildings.
          Then the besiegers decided that there was nothing to lose and began
          massive shelling (French) and aerial bombardment
          (Americans). And they demolished the old city along with the militants.
          The rest of the city (it is huge, multimillion) remained intact.
          ----
          Roughly the same thing happened in the ISIS capital Raqqa, which was taken
          by storm the Americans and Kurds. The city center was destroyed.

              the population of the Old City, and the ISIS fighters who held
              them as human shields.

    in five years, more than 133 thousand militants were killed in Syria, including 4,5 thousand people from the Russian Federation and the CIS countries.

    Positive point number two
    For five years of hostilities, all commanders of military districts, combined-arms armies, air force and air defense armies, commanders of divisions, brigades and regiments, 98% of military police personnel, 90% of pilots, 78% of servicemen of engineering troops, more than half of air defense specialists, more than 60% of the military personnel of the Russian Navy

        Why? The pilots rotated very actively ... For 5 years, the personnel, even if three months of a business trip - and a reinforced regiment (there are also quite a few helicopters, I don’t remember how many) - is 20 times more than the number of 2 air regiments. It looks like it is.

          Yes, but the variety of equipment is limited there. There were not so many of the same fighters there. And besides, the pilots of strategic and long-range aviation were not based there in principle, although of course they took part in the strikes, but even then, in my opinion, several times in total.

            Still the strategists were based there. In general, they are strategists because they fly FAR. There, if you remember, the strategists even threw free-falling bombs. All Sushki, from 24 to 35, were noted there. All combat and transport helicopters. And a lot. There were no moments, in my opinion ... Otherwise, the whole set.

          In my opinion, the prospect is at least ten years before a complete solution.
          First of all
          - to ensure the safety of the liberated territories.
          - to establish a full life for people
          - start the economy
          Parallel
          One way or another, squeeze the US occupation forces of Turkey and other uninvited warriors out of Syria.
          Which by the way is now being carried out by Russian units.
          The Russians are equipping full-fledged checkpoints in the territories controlled by the Americans so far.

          Upon reaching the above goals, you can proceed to
          the second stage.
          The systematic and gradual cleansing of uncontrolled territories.
          Ensuring a safe and fulfilling life in these territories.
          Recovery of economic life.

          All of this must be accompanied by reforms.
          Reforms should be about ensuring equality of all peoples and groups of the population of Syria.
          Now there is an absolute bias towards the Arab part of the population.
          It will take at least 10 years to achieve these goals.

          And this is only with the active desire of the Syrian leadership.
          So far, the Syrian leadership does not hear well the advice given by the relevant Russian experts in terms of resolving internal problems.

        What are you smoking there? Where is northern Kazakhstan and where is the garden ring?

    A cursory comparison of the results two years ago and today suggests:
    either someone is fooling someone, or those who wrote the report for Sergey Kuzhugetovich slipped some nonsense, and he read it aloud, or the calculation for the short memory of those who read such messages.

    We read, compare, draw conclusions.
    2020
    ... in five years, more than 133 thousand militants were killed in Syria, including 4,5 thousand immigrants from the Russian Federation and the CIS countries.

    2018
    ... killed more than 86 thousand militants in Syria, including 4,5 thousand immigrants from Russia and the CIS countries.

    Apparently, people from the Russian Federation and the CIS countries are over?
    2020
    Russian pilots made more than 44 thousand sorties,

    2018
    made 39 thousand sorties,

    Five thousand sorties in two years?
    2020
    ... the operation in Syria was attended by "87% of the crews of the operational-tactical aviation, 91% of the army, 97% of the military transport aviation, as well as 60% of the crews of strategic and long-range aviation." Two-thirds of the flight and technical personnel of the Russian military aviation have completed combat practice in the Middle Eastern country.

    2018
    "4349 specialists from missile forces and artillery, 87% of operational-tactical crews, 91% of army, 97% of military transport aviation, as well as 60% of crews of strategic and long-range aviation of the Russian Federation received combat experience."

    Here, in general, there is not much difference ...

    There, the achievements look somehow more serious, more digital data, etc.

      What conclusions do you need?
      In the first three years, we made more sorties - so the situation there was more difficult, and there were more targets. What's wrong?
      What is wrong with the crews? They tested all (or almost) young people to serve and serve. The pre-retirees were not chased - it makes no sense. Those. these 87% show that they have tested practically the entire promising roster.

      Five thousand sorties in two years?
      First year - 133 ++ goals. Let's say we made 000 sorties a year, three years, there are 13 goals left ... to speculate further?

    "And write more enemies of the killed, why should you feel sorry for them, you bastard"
    Considering that 99% of the losses of the barmaley from the bombing of our aviation, it is extremely difficult to really calculate the losses in manpower. Who will climb the debris and count the corpses on enemy territory? It is possible to estimate approximately, but these estimates can easily differ several times.

    Well, what else can he say?
    Why the heck did we get in there? Of course not!
    No one has ever admitted their mistakes, and pluses can always be found, even if they are worthless

    The coolest thing in the title photo is Kuzhugetich's leather armchair. It probably costs more than a fighter.
    But this is to make it clear that they are not doing garbage here.
