Financial Times: Vladimir Putin is preparing another adventure with the "green men"

74
Edition Financial Times published a material in which it is said that Russian President Vladimir Putin is preparing a “new international adventure” with the so-called green men.




“Remember the little green men, the Russian military in unmarked uniforms, first appeared in the Crimea last year? (...) Perhaps the "green men" appeared again - this time in Syria, where Vladimir Putin is plotting another international adventure, "- quotes an excerpt from the article Gazeta.Ru.

Syria has been the main ally of the Russian Federation in the Middle East for quite some time, but suddenly it had strategic importance. Putin does not hide the fact that he strengthens the presence of Russia in Syria, and the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Sergey Lavrov, acknowledged that Russia is still being shipped to this country weapon.

“Maybe the activation of Moscow’s policy on Syria is simply a diversion in order to divert attention from Ukraine. (...) Maybe Russia is determined to ensure the survival of the Assad regime in Damascus at any cost. Perhaps, Moscow believes that the regime is collapsing, and Putin is strengthening Russia's military presence in order to ensure Moscow’s role in the “post-Sadad” era, ”the newspaper notes.

According to the author of the material, the most likely option is that the Russian Federation is using the Syrian situation, “to demonstrate its power and expand its influence in the Middle East,” while the future steps in Moscow have not yet been considered.

“To influence the state of affairs in Syria is currently trying to such a number of forces that the appearance of“ green men ”does not greatly worsen the situation. But, apparently, no matter what Putin does in Syria, Russian intervention is unlikely to improve the situation, ”concludes the publication.

      What, and to London, the Dutch dope doddle got that they "green men" seem? I don’t know what they get in the way, that they see little people ... I have one friend from the Dutch dope who also shook someone from himself, they crawled on him. I told him then that it was necessary to tie up with the plan - at least with the Dutch. Tea does not grow in England, and Anasha does not grow in Holland. At least, with their chemistry, not only men will dream ...

      And on a note, they didn’t come to threaten anyone, they just looked in silence and the problem was resolved quickly and without firing, because our conscience is clean and our business is right, and whoever was against them didn’t even speak, but simply washed away quietly, it's like a mother in eyes to look if you get lazy, you can’t deceive your conscience.

        No matter how scary and unpleasant it is to use the army abroad, especially after Afghanistan, it seems that there is no other fate for the state, which claims to be a leader or at least political independence in the world. If you do not play this game in Syria, you will soon have to "arrange the figures" in Central Asia and the North Caucasus. soldier

      The situation will improve not the presence of our troops, but the absence of American intervention, and even better - and the Saudi. Then the situation itself will come out of the tailspin, due to the lack of motivation among ISIS bandits.

    The Kremlin is raising rates in Syria, as it sees in ISIS a threat to Russia. Putin considers Assad a man who confronts this threat and refuses to give up. Of course, fighting an enemy abroad while supporting an ally is preferable to fighting it in the Caucasus or Central Asia. In addition, it is important for Russia not to demonstrate weakness under pressure: as Putin once said, “the weak are beaten.”

    The nature of the statements reveals the true face of the West - they do not even consider the option of eliminating the terror in Syria unleashed by bandits.
    Any speculation about the various interests of external forces, but not the restoration of the Syrians' right to live in their own state.
    What speculation is not expressed in the newspaper, there is only truth-
    in Syria, it’s necessary to restore order so that people can live in peace,
    why do we need to destroy the gang of Islamists Ig.

      "Improve" - ​​this is looking for someone! For Assad and the Alawites - in any case, it will improve. For Kurds and Christians - from Arabs it will improve about Armenians, for Druze and, possibly, Syrian Turkmens it will improve - it will reduce the pressure of the Islamic State on them.
      But for terrorist groups from the Islamic State to all sorts of Al Nusra (the same Al Qaeda) and the Free Syrian Army, supported by the United States, of course, the situation will clearly not improve. Yes, and it would be funny if it would improve the situation for them. yes
