"Kommersant": Russia supplied the Syrian troops with armored personnel carriers and grenade launchers

33
Moscow confirmed the provision of military technical assistance to the Syrian government army and the presence of Russian specialists in the country “strictly within the framework of international law.” Washington believes that the Kremlin supports a regime that is itself guilty of starting a civil war. He writes about it Kommersant.




A newspaper source said: “At the moment, several batches of small arms are being delivered to Syria weapons, grenade launchers, armored personnel carriers BTR-82A, military trucks “Ural” and other weapons necessary for the conduct of local hostilities and the transfer of personnel of the Syrian army. ”

The interviewee claims that "deliveries are conducted in accordance with international law, in compliance with all formalities and under existing contracts" between the governments of Russia and Syria.

He assured the newspaper that “some of these agreements are sold with money allocated by Damascus as an advance (this is about $ 400 million) for the purchase of C-300PMU-2 air defense systems, which Moscow, after consulting with the Israeli authorities, decided not to supply ".

According to him, “the strengthening of the Syrian army achieved with the help of Russia should significantly help in the fight against IS”.

The general director of Rosoboronexport, Anatoly Isaikin, earlier emphasized in an interview: “All our contacts in the area of ​​military-technical cooperation with the Syrians are absolutely legal ... We take into account the situation in this region and supply only weapons that cannot be used against other countries. Believe me: everything that they have is directed exclusively to protect their borders and fight against terrorists. ”

Commenting on the topic of military supplies, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova noted: “Moscow has never denied this fact. In Syria, there are Russian military experts helping to master the incoming equipment, and there is a logistics point for the naval fleet RF ".

In turn, Western media believe that "the Russian military are involved in the Syrian conflict, not only as advisers." According to their sources, “the military from the Russian Federation are taking part in operations on the intra Syrian front and are waiting for reinforcements in the near future.”

A source at Reuters at the Pentagon claims, for example, that “Moscow sent two landing ships to Syria and an additional plane with special equipment to prepare the runway of the airfield in the port city of Latakia, controlled by government forces.”

As a result, Bulgaria has closed its airspace for Russian aircraft. True, Moscow has already secured the permission of the Iranian authorities to fly over the sides of their country’s territory along the so-called eastern route.

Washington considers helping the Syrian government an unacceptable step. “It is unacceptable to provide any support to the Assad regime. After all, this allows him to avoid searching for a constructive dialogue with a view to ending the conflict, ”said William Stevens, spokesman for the American Embassy in the Russian Federation.

According to him, “instead of helping the Syrian people unite against extremism and the IG, Russia continues to support a regime whose ongoing atrocities only fuel the growth of extremism.”

Stevens actually put an end to the discussions about the proposal of Moscow to include Syrian government forces in the coalition against the "Islamic State". He said: “We are already fighting the IS together with 60 foreign coalition partners. And the Assad regime cannot be a partner in this struggle. ”

      These atrocities are only in the ill imagination of William Stevens and cannot be compared with those atrocities that the United States brings to the rest of the world. In general, the most vile atrocity of the world “hegemon” is to appoint its geopolitical opponents to the role of world evil. Although this "hegemore" itself is a world evil.

        In the “Aeneid” of Kotlyarevsky - p_E_ndos (pre. From the game in “pestilence” - in Greek “penda” = 5; for comparison, because of the same game, Italians in Switzerland call “chinks” - from Italian. “Chink” = 5). Although some believe that p_I_ndosy are Greeks from the vicinity of Mount Pindus. And I heard about the Yankees that it was the Serbs who so called them - i.e. "penguins" because with full calculation, they can only pace around - but the Serbian dictionaries do not know such a word

        Having lost its original meaning, the word, nevertheless, was quite firmly included in the army and criminal jargon of the 1950-1980s, due to its consonance with a number of brighter and more substantive curses that were widespread in Russian ("", “pi **** "," pi *** vile "," pi *** gundosy "

        It’s just that all the threads connected in Kosovo, Russian jargon, Balkan, Spanish and US citizens have absorbed all this. )))
        The consonance of this Russian word with the Spanish pendejo, widely known to the Americans (“”, read “pendejo”), made the offensive meaning of the word equally understandable for both Russians and Americans. This explains the sudden new popularity and new prevalence of this old national nickname.

        Note that in Greece, in particular, and in the Balkans in general, the word "" is also used in the sense of a dim-witted, stupid, rustic person. This is due to the fact that in Greece the Pontic Greeks, “s”, as carriers of everyday traditions, significantly different from those of the native Greeks, served for at least the last century, the object of more or less evil jokes and jokes on a national theme ( Why don’t they eat olives? "" Because the head doesn’t crawl into the jar. Why did the Pontic ("sky") prostitute hang herself? "Because after 20 years of work she found out that others took money for this, etc.).

    Assad, although you are not a partner, but makes a much more significant contribution to the fight against IS than you and some 60 partners. It’s time to replace the personal hostility to Assad with real actions against the IS.

    Perfectly! How wonderful and bright, just like a New Year's garland, the skin of the advocates of "international law" and their henchmen smoothed out "against the wool" sparkles and crackles! What infuriates them most is that everything is “according to the letter and spirit” of all the universally accepted “covenants” of the United Nations. Do not quibble. It remains only to howl from the fence. I am sincerely glad that we finally ceased to be embarrassed by our own global interests and returned as a player to the table of arbiters of world politics.

      Here on this phrase I somehow “hung”. For a long time I could not understand: this is HOW?
      Like, Assad was sitting, the Duma was thinking "with whom would I fight? Everyone I know is already afraid to contact me, but to shoot hotz. Could I create fun for the sake of the armed opposition and ask 3,14ndos to support these clowns." So what was the matter according to the mattresses?

    The stump is clear, the goose the pig is not a friend. The Assad regime is a long-standing partner of the Union and the Russian Federation in the fight against all evil spirits. And you, miserable, better keep quiet and stay away.

    Stevens actually put an end to the discussion about Moscow’s proposal to include Syrian government forces in the coalition against the Islamic State.

    It would be naive to expect another from mattresses! All their demagogy about the declared struggle against ISIS cannot hide the fact that Assad is the main opponent of the West! Mattress created ISIS in order to overthrow Assad, since all other attempts, with the help of the Syrian opposition and its apprentices in the Arab world, have already been failed for 4 years! And there is no need for illusions - all this chatter about the coalition created by the West to fight ISIS is yet another cover for the West, so that bypassing the UN itself it would get into Syria and, with the help of all this Islamist bandit scum, finally bring down the legitimate Syrian government! And only Russia and Iran can prevent the victory of the gangster caliphate and its patrons, providing all possible assistance to the Syrian government forces, which is now happening, and the presence of the Russian military in Syria is a guarantee against direct NATO intervention there!
