Putin: Militants must be fought in Syria, and not waiting for their return

For Russia, it is preferable to fight the Islamists - people from the former USSR - in Syria, than to wait from returning home, Vladimir Putin said in an interview with American media.


Putin: Militants must be fought in Syria, and not waiting for their return


“More than two thousand militants, immigrants from the former Soviet Union are in Syria. There is a threat that they will return to us, - quotes the president TASS. “So, rather than waiting for them to return to us, it’s better to help Assad fight them in Syria.”

“This is the main motivating factor that pushes Russia to assist Assad,” he stressed. “On the whole, of course, we don’t want the situation in the region to become totalized.”

At the same time, according to Putin, "Russia will not participate in any military operations in Syria or in other states." “In any case, today we are not planning this,” he added.

The President noted that the Foreign Ministry of the Russian Federation is constantly working with both Assad and with partners from other countries.

“There is no other way to solve the Syrian problem, such as strengthening the existing legal state structures, helping them in the fight against terrorism, but of course, encouraging them at the same time to have a positive dialogue with the healthy part of the opposition and to carry out political transformations,” Putin

He did not deny that Moscow’s actions were aimed at preserving the power of Assad. “I am deeply convinced that by acting in a different direction, towards the destruction of legitimate power structures, we can create a situation that we see today in other countries of the region or in other regions of the world, for example, in Libya, where all state institutions are completely disintegrated”, noted the Russian leader.

“We are seeing a similar situation in Iraq,” he added, and advised all the forces seeking and wishing for Assad’s resignation, “to send this wish to the Syrian people, because only the Syrian people within the country have the right to decide who to rule the country".

Putin suggested that those who accuse the Syrian president of a war with his people should think about whether they are doing the right thing, “supporting the armed opposition and, mainly, terrorist organizations, only to overthrow Assad, not caring about what will happen to the country after complete destruction of its state institutions. "

“You all the time, repeatedly, with perseverance that deserves a better use, say that the Syrian army is fighting with its people,” said the President of Russia. - But look who controls 60 percent of the territory of Syria? 60 percent of the territory of Syria controls either ISIS (IG) or others - “Dzhebhat al-Nusra” and other terrorist organizations, organizations that are recognized as terrorist and the United States and other states, and the UN ”.

Putin also called the “anti-Syrian propaganda” claims by the West that Assad’s actions “play into the hands of the IS”, and that his departure from the political scene will help intensify the fight against terrorists.

        But for some reason, the Western "partners" do not want to notice one of their own strangeness.
        Moscow’s actions are aimed at maintaining Assad’s power. “In my deep conviction, acting in a different direction, in the direction of destroying the legitimate structures of power, we can create a situation, which we see today in other countries of the region or in other regions of the world, for example, in Libya, where all state institutions are completely disintegrated ”,

        We are blamed for the fact that we do not want to act by their method of disintegration and devastation.
        They are already being told this way and that ... and they are like a popcadura .. Assad must leave, Assad must leave ... democracy, democracy! devastation, grief, chaos 3v1, brand Democracy come to you.

        The stubbornness and stupidity of Americans is surprising. Or is it intentional? Then their place in Hell is unambiguous.

    But how to deal with militants in cities? In a clean field it’s clear how, using the same drones to determine the location and strike from the air, but how in the city? If you storm, you need ground troops, and this is a loss.

      The Iranians and the liberated part of the Syrian troops from Latakia will storm the cities. And our marines will cover part of the territory of Latakia and Tartus, where our bases are located. According to reports from the west, in addition to Tartus and the airfield south of Latakia, ours are rebuilding 2 more Syrian military bases south of Latakia. And by the way, judging by the infiltrating infa, our css has been there for several months.

        I would storm the city as follows:
        1) Surround and block the city so that no one could discreetly enter or leave it.
        2) Through loudspeakers and propaganda shells, I would suggest civilians leave the city (naturally, detaining everyone until the status of the detainees is determined, are they combatants or not, I would check the documents, interrogate if I needed to do a polygraph check).
        3) After the expiration of the ultimatum, I would use a sleeping gas throughout the city (that gas against which only insulating gas masks are effective, because I’m 99% sure that ISIS does not have such gas), then at night on heavy BMPs I would use the thermal imagers to enter the city ( I’ll explain why at night, because houses and buildings cool down, and on the thermal imager you can determine where people are through the walls).
        That's the whole operation.

        as soon as they begin to wet them there, they will immediately emerge in Russia, it’s not realistic to completely destroy everyone after the “cleansing” of Syria and Iraq, we must expect a surge of terrorism here and in Europe ..

      There is someone to do yes

      Together with the preliminary stage of the deployment of the Russian grouping, great preparations are also being made by the Syrians. The freshest and most well-equipped units are concentrated in the provinces of Homs, Hama and Aleppo. In addition, cautious offensive operations take place on the approaches to Palmyra, Deraa and in other areas. Perhaps to occupy convenient bridgeheads for the offensive.

      Shiite battalions and volunteer brigades, which Iran “imports” into Syria, are also concentrated in the same areas. In particular, Iraqi Shiites or Hazara-Afghans. They have long since begun to arrive en masse in Syria, but are poorly seen in battles. For a long time, units of the Iranian “vacationers” from the “Kods” forces of the IRGC intended for foreign operations also arrived in Syria. There were also regular units of the IRGC and even supposedly ground forces of Iran.

      Our first priority is to block the movement and supply of ISIS formations, as well as the protection and cover of objects already conquered from counterattacks of this evil soldier Well rambling and armament itself request

      And so, you're right yes into the cities, we can’t get on our hands. Drop, sort who Allah Akbar is broadcasting request Accusations of the genocide of the “right” terrorists will not be long in coming, from all sides. And most importantly, our losses are not justified stop

    A good action movie is a dead action movie. How they left, how much calmer it became in the Caucasus. It is necessary to wet them, while the situation allows. They are not needed here, they will not become normal law-abiding people. Leopard change his spots.

      I agree with you, the IG still needs to say thank you for attracting the most frostbitten citizens of the Russian Federation, thereby reducing the terrorist activity of the latter in Russia.

    We’ll create our coalition, without mericatos and their packs, then we’ll give a damn about the IGilovites.
    And this, just that, do not want the mericosa, because their whole policy is down the drain.

    Military diary of Igor Korotchenko:
    A few thoughts out loud:
    1. Obama has no information about Putin’s exact plan of action in Syria, so Washington is nervous, being in limbo.
    2. The strongest trump card in Russia is the possibility of creating a military air and naval base in Latakia and Tartus, respectively. USA are nervous!
    3. Obama's confirmed intention to meet with Putin is evidence of the strong negotiating position of the Russian Federation on Syria.
    4. The CIA reported to Obama that US intelligence does not have accurate information on how the Russian Federation will act against ISIS, only possible options.
    5. By the way, in recent weeks there has been increased activity of CIA officers using not so much diplomatic, but so-called "deep cover."
    6. Which is better: to fight ISIS in the Middle East or wait for them to come to Russia?
    7. I won’t be surprised if I see guys from Ramzan on the side of Assad.
    8. People who are fighting with the passports of the Russian Federation on the side of ISIS should not come back to us - and for this absolutely all means will be good.
    9. A kick in the ass for Poroshenko: at a meeting between Putin and Obama Syria will be discussed, and "if there is time, then Ukraine will be there." Omitted Petro!

    Assad is a legitimate president, chosen by his people by law, and we are on the side of the law. This is the only right decision to help, but do not get into a fight directly.

    It seems to me that mostly militants, former and current, are fleeing from Syria. Since everyone will soon be counted and checked for lice.
