The "Financial Times" consultant "knows" how many troops Russia sends to Syria

39
Referring to a certain “Syria consultant in Moscow”, the publication The Financial Times It comes out with the material that Russia is supposedly going to send about 2 thousands of servicemen to Syria in the near future. The “consultant” FT claims that all these servicemen of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation will be deployed at the airfield in Latakia.


Another source of the Western publication turned out to be “even more informed” about Russia's plans for action in Syria. According to him, fighter crews are sent to Syria from Russia aviation, military engineers, as well as army units for the protection of important facilities. At the same time, both "experts" refer to satellite photographs on which you can see the aircraft of Russian aviation. In particular, The Financial Times leads the photo, which depicts a heavy long-haul transport aircraft An-124 "Ruslan".

The "Financial Times" consultant "knows" how many troops Russia sends to Syria


It is strange that in FT they are trying to pass this photo as “sensational” proof of Russia's presence in Syria. The fact is that the video of the An-124 landing in Latakia was also published by the Russian side itself, and therefore Russian aid to Damascus has long been no secret.

It is quite another thing - information about the "thousands of Russian military" in Syria. The “consultants” of the Western press report how they carried out a “calculation” and gained value in 2 from thousands of Russian military personnel. It turns out that they came to this number by the method of comparison. - The idea of ​​exactly such a number of servicemen "consultants" prompted a comparison with the number of troops on US air bases in Afghanistan. They say that if Americans need to keep thousands of their military on 2 (at each of the bases), then the Russians will need to be no less ... The information that Russia is building an air base, and it’s own, appeared after publications in Stratfor satellite photos of fresh asphalt at the airport in Latakia ...

The only question is: what would these "consultants" do without Google maps? .. Although, there are screenshots of computer games ...

    A lot of these "consultants" got divorced ... Like fleas on a dog, and everyone knows everything ... A paradox! Why shouldn't this newspaper declare that the Lord God consults them? And then can the editor-in-chief be canonized.

        Psaki gave birth in July 2015, which means she’s probably already at work (it’s fast for them) in the White House, as the head of the public relations department. Contact (like the public), make contact - it will clarify, it's her job. Only chur - lay out the answers, laugh together)))

    At the same time, both "experts" refer to satellite photographs on which you can see the aircraft of Russian aviation.



    Well, experts ..... why didn’t they show real satellite images from supposedly Russian troops located in UKRAINE?

    Worthless to these experts .... has long ceased to pay attention to such experts.

    They attract tens of Buryat divisions at once to some little things.

    Something from the category of such a work for Western inhabitants:

    "Press the action button, tovarish!" - said the commissioner with a Russian accent.
    I hesitated. We almost never see the consequences of our work, we only see from the media! And now there were five or six unarmed Chechen women in front of me, two raped German women and a wounded Ukrainian preacher from the Aidar battalion.
    "PRESS!" the commissar repeated in an orderly tone and pointed his Kalashnikov pistol at me, screwing up an unpleasant Mongoloid gaze and fiercely fluttering the wings of a large Semitic nose. "Press the battle button or I'll send you to Siberia!"
    For the first time in my entire service at Spetsnaz KGB, I didn't know what to do. We are cold-blooded killers with nerves of steel, but even we were not prepared for that. On the one hand, I love Putin, the Communist Party and Soviet Motherland, on the other, I just can't decide who to shoot first, because everyone is so "tasty"! And so, I, Captain Ivan Vasily Drago, stand like a Buridan donkey, hold my finger on the action button of my Dragunov machine gun and cannot decide in any way who to shoot at first, and whom to torment (or, perhaps, rape) a little more.
    The silence is interrupted by a Ukrainian preacher from the "Aydar" battalion: "Let me go! I am a believer! We, Ukrainians, are peaceful people! What have we done to you! Why did you invade our land!"
    The hawkish gaze of the comrade commissar instantly jumps from me to the insolent prisoner, the curls hanging from his temples, as if heated with hatred, are compressed like steel springs. The red star on his cap glitters with hellish flames, as do the narrow Mongoloid eyes. The Commissioner speaks with a pronounced Russian accent, "You ask, why does your land have fluorides? I will tell you!"
    Comrade Commissar puts his Kalashnikov pistol at the head of the captured Ukrainian and presses the battle button. A satisfied Semitic smile settles on his Mongoloid face.
    "Truly Kamyunism is to kill, that's why

    According to him, fighter aircraft crews, military engineers, as well as army units are sent from Russia to Syria to protect important facilities.

    I am not surprised. that after such stuffing, the flow of refugees into Europe only increases, which the West blames Russia for. I believe that many ISIS know that the Russians are not Americans and many things will not work with them. Therefore, the flow of refugees has sharply increased. But we have not even begun. Something like that...

    As far as I know myself, the Soviet Union, and now Russia, never advertised the sending of their troops and equipment to the conflict zones until the very end! Deliveries under a contract, yes, they do not hide it, but without a contract? It is unacceptable to tell the whole world about such things! The media, especially the central ones, will certainly not say that there are many of our specialists, fighters, etc. in Syria. Therefore, I would not immediately pounce on these "knowledgeable" people. Maybe they know the truth, at least we cannot refute such information. The refutation of Peskov and Lavrov does not count the first sentence!

Why are they so excited there. We seem to be fighting world terrorism together. They need to rejoice at such help. Or did you feel sorry for the money invested in IS?

          There was no regular army of the Russian Federation in the country! There were vacationers and volunteers (including Chechens) about 1500 people, and then in August 2014, when Ukrainians were stronger than VSN, plus Voentorg (mainly from the former Ukrainian equipment located in Crimea, old stuff donated by VSN, and some new equipment controlled by vacationers) . The regular army would tear up the fuss in a week, and even then they basically drove the banderyuk through the forests.

    note that there is no particular problem with the demonstration of evidence of the Russian military presence in Syria - there are a lot of satellite images with a fairly good resolution.

      There were vacationers on the asrains (maybe there are not a lot of them now), and in Syria there are already not only advisers, but also aviation (in large numbers) and s-300 systems, the level is different, Syria can be compared with Crimea, and even then Crimea was much more than our military.

    To be honest, it is not entirely clear under what sauce they are presenting the presence of the Russian Armed Forces in Syria. Like, the "bad" Russians will destroy the "very bad" IS, and this is very bad?
    The layman can suddenly catch himself thinking that, in theory, the mainstream should melt with delight that very bad guys will be destroyed by bad guys, i.e. with the wrong hands, but there is no enthusiasm, the question will be, why? and this is already dangerous when such questions arise)
