Retired Greek Colonel: There is a new Russian-Turkish war in Syria

149

Greek columnist Panayotis Nastos, a retired colonel and master of the School of National Security, publishes an assessment of events in the Syrian Arab Republic. In the material presented by the aforementioned author on the pages of the publication Pentapostagma, the events in Syria are called "a new Russian-Turkish war."


The retired Greek colonel writes that today Syria is preparing for full control over the airspace of this country.

Panayiotis Nastos:

Russia maintains and even increases its military presence in Syria. This is a clear signal to both Turkey and Israel that Moscow is ready to resist aggression against the Syrian state. Of course, the Russian Foreign Ministry does not speak specifically about these countries, but it makes it clear that Turkey is conducting "unwanted military operations" in the SAR, including in areas where Russian troops are present.

For example, we are talking about the Turkish shelling of the city of Ain Issa, where a Russian observation post was created at the request of the local (Kurdish) administration.

Against this background, a battle appeared over Ain Issa. aviation... Syrian sources say that these "can be Russian Aerospace Forces planes."

The Greek author writes that Russia is "annoyed" by the Israeli bombing of Syria "under the pretext of attacks on Iranian and pro-Iranian forces." The retired Greek colonel says Israeli aircraft "frequently strike after coordinating with the US military present in Syria."

Nastos:
In 2020, Turkey lost at least 60 of its military in Syria, 100 Turkish military were injured. More than a dozen Turkish drones were shot down by air defense systems. Then in the United States, Moscow was accused of involvement in the death of Turkish soldiers. But Russia denies all charges.

At the same time, Nastos focuses on the fact that Russian-Turkish relations in Syria cannot be called cloudless, since each of the states in the SAR has its own goals and interests, and these goals and interests are often opposite.

    Well done Greek colonel, he voiced the specific situation of relations between Turkey and Russia in Syria, which our Foreign Ministry and Defense Ministry "diplomatically" keep silent about ..

        Another world war, given the number of countries involved and involved in the conflict. The motive is the same as in all previous world wars after 1945. sad

        Whose war is this? For whose interests is this war? What does "future extrapolation of power to the Middle East" mean? Future wars for "markets" in the Middle East? For funding jobs in the Middle East? Let's leave ISIS and other terrorists alone for now, we all know who breeds terrorists. Maybe you should focus on the development of industry in your country first? This is not a people's war.

      askort154 "Well done Greek colonel ", voiced a specific situation.
      I see many disagree. Then I'll decipher my message.
      Who can explain today, or where do they sound at the highest levels of our
      power structures - what strategic canons today link Russia with Turkey? Don't look, there are none. There are no interstate strategic agreements. There is only impulsive "kissing" with the unpredictable Erdogan. And if translated into sports language, then
      more goals were scored into our goal than into the Turkish goal. I will not list everything, only the last two - Azeibarjan and Ukrainian. And this is much more significant than our mutual penalties at BV. While we're driving
      "igil" (zapr RF) in Syria, Erdogan impudently climbs into our "embrace with a brick in his bosom", and we friendly conducted him our "gas pipe" with a valve distributor for the EU,
      We are building ATE at our own expense (in debt). He responds by arming Ukraine, and openly declares that Crimea is a Turkish-Ukrainian theme. The Greek retired colonel sees this, and our prodigy elite "makes a beautiful face" on the big stage.
      So - well done Greek colonel! Voiced what he cannot voice, openly, our Colonel General. yes

      The outcast Greek plays on the Russian audience to turn it against Turkey. He understands that at the moment only 3 countries can hold Turkey. These are Russia, USA, China. The United States will not get in because it is most interested in this conflict, China does not need this, Russia is left, which is not like the Greeks, the whole of Europe is not envious of loving. This is how the races spoil the relationship between their enemy and those who are not under pressure.
      By the way, pay attention that all the incitement between Russia and Turkey comes from the Greek press, then from its top. Other countries are nervously smoking on the sidelines.

              If ISIS had not been stopped then, Assad was already sitting on his suitcases, the next goal for them was planned - to exit through Iran and Afghanistan to Central Asia. The Taliban are the only ones who are fighting against Alqaida in Afghanistan. Guess whose side the Americans are on? The corridor was prepared for them in advance, but it did not work out. And now they would catch the militants on the completely unfitted border with Kazakhstan, in the crowds of refugees. Enough?

Not to mention Tajikistan, and even more so Afghanistan. I don’t know where you control whom ... Regarding the educational program. I personally knew some of the bodyguards of the first and second presidents of Kyrgyzstan. We trained in the same gym. Some of the "field commanders" from Tajikistan and Afghanistan were sometimes brought there for training. Well, the guys worked with them, there is such a practice.

              We will not pay attention to some confusion in the names of groups. There, everything is so confused into a single tangle that experts will not guarantee who is who. The bottom line is correct. ISIS, drained of blood, deprived of its material and technical base in Syria, is trying to revive in the form of a quasi-state entity in a new place. The corridor to Afghanistan for the battered trash was provided by an international coalition. Upon arriving at the scene, ISIS had to engage in clashes with the Taliban. Lacking the material base and support of the local population, ISIS was mostly defeated. The Taliban set up prisons for the captured aliens. But further interesting events began to occur. The forces of the American special forces carried out a number of landing operations, as a result of which the ISIS leaders with their families and ordinary militants were released and evacuated by helicopters in an unknown direction. Operations were carried out secretly at night, with direct witnesses from prison guards destroyed. But there was a puncture in Badghis province. During the storming of a Taliban prison near the mountain village of Panjboz, a sergeant of the 75th Ranger Regiment from Washington, Cameron A, was fatally wounded. Four days later, the sergeant died in the Landstuhl military hospital in Germany. As it should be according to the regulations, information about the death of the ranger, the time and place of the injury was published on the Pentagon website: "DOD identifies Army Casuality:" died ... as a results of injuries sustained from small arms fire during combat operation on Jan. 13 , 2019, in Jawand District, Badghis Province, Afghanistan. "The time and place coincided with the statement of the Taliban spokesman. So everything surfaced. And on January 28, 2019, at the Interior Ministry board, the scheme was announced in more detail:" ISIS militants en masse by unknown helicopters with the territories of Pakistan are being transferred today to the border of Tajikistan. There, apparently, large-scale provocations are planned in the future with the squeezing of a large number of refugees and with all the consequences in the direction of the Russian Federation. "Sometimes, to stop the provocation, it is enough to hint to the" partners "that we are aware of their intentions.
              Do not forget that the presence of troops in the region, in addition to the tasks of destroying the enemy's manpower and equipment, points of material and technical supply, makes it possible to organize operational work to collect intelligence and counterintelligence information.

              And this is what? The PS was given by the FSB, sort of like 2003:
              On July 1, 2003, by the decree of the President of the Russian Federation [16], the Federal Border Service of the Russian Federation was abolished. Its functions were transferred to the jurisdiction of the Border Service, created by the same decree, as part of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation. To organize the activities of the newly created structure, the Organizational Department of the Frontier Service of the FSB of Russia is being formed.

              In Tajikistan, for example, were Russian border guards carried out in 2005?
              On July 13, 2005, the withdrawal of Russian border guards was officially completed; a limited contingent remained in the status of foreign advisers [1].

              In 2011, the composition of the Russian contingent was reduced from 350 to 200 people [2] until 2016.

              What is the point of the PV FSB of the Russian Federation?

Of course, the damage to the border service as a result of all the turbulence was colossal, but thank God the service survived, strengthened and remained under the authority of the FSB. From the PV of the KGB of the USSR to the SS of the FSB of the Russian Federation is not an easy path. But for all thirty years they have been our border troops.

They threw out of the republics the border service of the Russian Federation, I think that not without pressure and the participation of "partners", such as the United States. At times I got the impression that it is the "partners" who control the situation in Central Asia. I don't know how now. But something tells me that the "partners" simply have not taken seriously Central Asia yet. And yes, the interest of the "partners" in Central Asia, it is mostly China with its Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, and the Russian Federation and others are different, this is the second stage.

              Why is it necessary to see everything in this way? The Tajik leadership, unlike Turkmenbashi, initially understood that they could not cope with the invasion of Islamists from Afghanistan on their own. They themselves asked Russia to take on the balance of the 201st division and the personnel of the KSAPO on the territory of Tajikistan. By 2005, most of the personnel and officers of the group already consisted of local ones, which in fact was one of the tasks of the OG PS FSB of the Russian Federation - to prepare the Tajik border service for independent border protection. After the withdrawal, as mentioned above, the task force remained. So there was no throwing out. Of course, the "partners" would like to squeeze us out of the region, but the 201st base is there, as far as I heard, for a long time.
              I didn’t tell you anything about the collective farmers from the aul. I myself know something, only because I served in KSAPO. And our head of the border detachment commanded the task force in Tajikistan for some time.

              On June 12, ethnic cleansing against the Uzbek population spread to the Jalal-Abad region, in the city of Jalal-Abad the Kyrgyz-Uzbek University named after I. K. Batyrov. Chairman of the interim government Roza Otunbayeva requested help from Russia... The border with Uzbekistan is open for refugees. Partial mobilization began in Kyrgyzstan, and a state of emergency and a curfew were imposed throughout the Jalal-Abad region.

              Russia refused... What opinion, conclusions and attitudes can then be expected in interstate affairs? How will the Russian group in Syria behave in the event of a serious conflict, at a distance from the Russian Federation and very complex logistics solutions for supplying the group?

              How will the Russian group in Syria behave in the event of a serious conflict, at a distance from the Russian Federation and very complex logistics solutions for supplying the group?

              It will behave with dignity, as it should be for a grouping of a great power. How our logistics works, "partners" have already been convinced more than once, during the deployment of the Aerospace Forces group in Syria, then the S-400 divisions, military police units, and the MTR. It was unexpected for them every time. As, by the way, it was unexpected for them in Georgia too. Remember how the "partners" begged to return them Hummers with special equipment?

The goals are set out in Bush Jr.'s keynote speech and then in the Democracy Act, written with the passionate input of the late Senator McCain. As you can see, this controlled chaos is rolling from west to east. Russia, as in all times, among all conquerors, even from the East, even from the West, just along the way.

    For the Turks, Dagestanis were not human. The peasants said that Russians, non-Muslims ... who fought with them for many years, always treated them much better than these Muslim brothers. laughingPerhaps one of the "sofa experts" will laugh at such prospects, citing comparative characteristics of the armies of Russia and Turkey: they say, we will shower them with hats. But who said that the military phase of the aggression will be carried out by the forces of regiments and divisions, and not the mass of sabotage detachments created from the same recruited Syrian fighters ?! That militants from the "Islamist International" will not flock to the next "gazavat" declared "infidel", as was the case with Dudayev's Chechnya? That through the now, in fact, the land border with Turkey (of which Azerbaijan may de facto become a part), the latest weapons and crowds of instructors from NATO countries will not go through a wide flow? And at the same time, both the West and Turkey, and even Azerbaijan, from whose territory all this will be done, will shrug their hands at all requests from our Foreign Ministry:

    And we have absolutely nothing to do with it! ..

      Azerbaijan has always been for peace, especially with Russia. Azerbaijan is not Russia's European neighbors who are going against it. Azerbaijan thinks differently, it understands that it can earn a lot precisely on what will be the link between Russia and the whole south, between Russia and the Turkic world, between Russia and the Muslim world.
      Azerbaijan needs stable economic growth, not war and devastation on its territory. And if it is a bridge between Russia and the South, then the flow of huge money for a small state is guaranteed.
      And by the way, everyone says Aliyev is following Turkey. This is all idiocy. Read the history, for centuries Azerbaijan and Turkey have been side by side. The Ottoman Empire always helped with the army, Azerbaijan always with money, since it was on the silk road. Everything is mutual and tested over the centuries.
      Even just watch the video on YouTube, like 5-6 years ago, Sargsyan began to accuse Turkey of all sins. Then Aliyev stood up and shut him up saying - Turkey is not here now, but I am. And he proved that Sargsyan is lying. Then everyone was shocked.

    The Greek people have one interest, and the Greek "elite" rulers have another and they will take the interest of the Zlobrits. So it is necessary to understand the stat of the Greek colonel.
    The Greeks, as a people, are in a grave situation, the Evil Briti use them as cannon fodder and are ready to sacrifice them. The Greeks are at NATO, and NATO is preparing them for destruction. In translation, the Greek colonel prays to God that Russia would save the Greek people. Something like this .

    Equally, your thesis is suitable for responding to Israel's Zionist aggression against the SAR.

    But now the "professors" will swoop in and scream about the holcoust, kgovy Cossacks-Hasidim and the torn sheet.

    And in the meantime:

    “As it became known to EVO-RUS.COM, citing its own source, the Russian Federation has warned about its readiness to shoot down Israeli planes if they resume flights to Syria again.

    The fact is that Israel's aggressive behavior on Syrian territory poses a potential threat to the Russian military stationed in Syria. In this regard, Moscow has officially announced that it is ready for tough action to protect its military personnel.

    Alexander Lavrentiev, special representative of the Russian president, noted that Russia intends to end Tel Aviv's aggression in the SAR by diplomatic or military means. Lavrentyev stressed that these measures are necessary to counter the escalation of violence in Syria and at the same time expressed the hope that Israel will hear a warning.

    It looks like the Solovyov-Kiselevsky stuffing.
    And the Foreign Ministry will again show an unhealthy, sex concern.

      Well, nonsense is golimy ... The Russian Federation did not declare anything of the kind.

    Surprisingly, the Turkish troops in Syria are on the personal agreements of Putin and Erdogan! De-escalation zones "suddenly" turned into escalation zones.
