Militias of Novosirii

25



Amid the lull in the Donbass in Russia, a new class of militia appears. Now they are going to fight not for the “Russian world”, but with the militants of the “Islamic State” (IG). So far there are not many of them - according to Kommersant, in Iraq, sending to Syria are waiting for 12 holders of Russian passports that have passed through Chechen campaigns or other local conflicts. Dozens more are preparing to fly to the Middle East in October. “Kommersant” talked with those who send militias to fight with the IG. At the same time, both the militia itself and experts say that such trips are unlikely to become widespread.

As it became known to “Kommersant”, recently the Russians are individually sent to the Middle East to fight with the IG. They are being sent to the region by Bondo Dorovskih, who has been fighting in Donetsk and Lugansk, and now he has decided to fight radical Islamists.

Mr. Dorovskikh himself told about himself “Kommersant” as a native of Dushanbe, who owned a small business in the Ivanovo region, who brought a good income. According to the “Card Index” database, in 2001, he became the founder of Ivanovo Oil Depot LLC, which 24 of March 2011 of the year ceased operations, and is now listed as a director at Barrel and Veritas, also registered in Ivanovo. “It was a small, but rather profitable oil business. Then I moved to Moscow, where I became a director in a medium-sized construction company. It always seemed to me that this was not enough, ”he says. At the end of 2014, he decided to join the Donbas militia to fight against the Ukrainian army. Mr. Dorovskikh assures that he was not interested in the financial component, there was enough accumulation from the business. “But I quickly realized that there was no reason to fight there. We then retreated, then attacked again, then the Minsk agreements were respected, and everything was quiet, ”he recalls. According to Mr. Dorovsky, the population of the villages in the Luhansk region, where he stayed for six months, often did not complain to the militia, accusing them of initiating a conflict. As a result, the former entrepreneur in March of this year decided to go home.

True, his peaceful life was no longer seducing him, so he decided that now his place in Syria was on the side of the troops of Bashar al-Assad. Like-minded people were found pretty quickly. According to Mr. Dorovsky, now in Russia they are preparing to send militias to the war zone near 20, another 12 are now in Iraq, in the city of Suleymaniyah in the east of the country. “These are former servicemen, some earn money by participating in various local conflicts. Someone is simply not ready to return to a peaceful life, ”he explains. According to Mr. Dorovskih, a detachment in Iraq is trying to join the ranks of the Peshmerga - a Kurdish military unit fighting against the IS militants. At the same time, Russians are not yet able to go to Syria - the Syrian border with Iraq is closed.

On the mass sending of Russians to Syria for the war with the "Islamic state" of the speech, however, is not. Former participants in the hostilities in the Donbass confirm that they have heard of such facts, but it is “only at the level of rumors”. “We know that some one-off shipments happen, but that there was a massive transfer of those who fought for the Donbass to Syria, we did not hear,” said Igor Mangushev, the leader of the Enot Corp. Lugansk region. “But if there is such an opportunity, it would be possible to get there, it should be interesting,” he added.

However, it is unlikely that Russian trips to Syria will become a trend (in any case, those who do not want to join the Islamic State banned in Russia - in its ranks, according to the Russian Security Council, they fight about 2 thousand immigrants from the Russian Federation). This is also recognized by Bondo Dorovsky: “Too expensive, complicated logistics, it is not very clear who to contact in order to enroll in military formations. It would be ideal to fight on the side of Assad, but the Syrian military officials ignored our requests. ” Political scientist and chief researcher at the Institute of World Economy and International Relations of the Russian Academy of Sciences Georgy Mirsky confirms: it is unlikely that Russians will be ready to go to war in Syria on a large scale and individually. “People went to war in Ukraine with the thought that the fascists were killing Russian people there, that it was Russian land, and why should they die in the Middle East? To help some Arabs kill others? ”He reasons. According to Mr. Mirsky, the number of Russian participants in the fighting in Syria will continue to be calculated no more than dozens.

Russia does not intend to participate in the ground operation in Syria - Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview with American television channels on the eve of his speech at the 70 of the UN General Assembly. Assistance to the government of Bashar al-Assad, fighting in Syria with the militants of the "Islamic State", is limited to the supply of military equipment. According to Kommersant’s sources in the General Staff of the Russian Federation, now there are only military specialists in the region training government troops to use this equipment, as well as the GRU and SVR officers attached to the embassy (in particular, the soldiers whose task is to cover the diplomats in case of evacuation). Present there and builders involved in the modernization of the logistics of the Russian Navy in Tartus (see “Kommersant” from September September 21). According to the Kommersant interlocutor in the General Staff, there are no other Russian military formations in Syria.

    There is a noticeable difference in the coverage of conflicts in our media - Donbass is rarely mentioned, you can’t hear about Novorossia, Syria and the fight against ISIS come back in first place, are all the victims in vain? Russia, like a century ago, is again saving Europe? This time from an unprecedented influx of refugees, eliminating the cause of the exodus of people from their homeland. One Russian who lives now in Germany was well expressed: “There are so many refugees that it seems that we will soon run back to Russia, and the Germans are with us”

      Yes, and good. Ukraine and fought only in the picture. In principle, there is a picture - there is American money. And if the picture is no longer interesting, they may not shoot. The frozen state of conflict is also good. Transnistria has been living like this for 25 years

        Sorry, stupid, who froze what? The shelling continues, and this is worse than a direct attack, you will answer - the controllers will immediately calculate it. You can’t freeze it. Donbass needs to be restored, and you will restore a lot under shelling and when men are under arms.
        And the fact that volunteers are leaving Donbass seems bad to me.

    Yeah ... "Whoever fought in one war will go to fight in the second and third." They say addictive, like a drug.

      I would stop at the place of the leadership of the Russian Federation and redirect it to more necessary places

      Do not shine Slavic faces in Syria! and the Chinese can’t be either! This is a direct loss in the info war - the West West will scream right away! Here is a photo - here is evidence of "atrocities" no matter - "Russians" will say "CST" or "Chinese" - all this is not necessary

      There is Iran and the IRGC and the Iranians want to fight - let them do it. There is Hezbollah and the Syrians themselves also still have - which is what they all do - and rightly so! Thank God they have enough fighters

      China and the Russian Federation must “cover up” at the UN Security Council, wage a diplomatic war - which they do

      China must support financially - which is being done. Russia must support with technology and air defense - which is what it is doing. Te everything is going right

    Since the time of Catherine, Russians have supported brothers. This is a spiritual concept, not a territorial one.
    In Spain, Nicaragua ... Somewhere else - we don’t know everything.
    Thank you for the article.

      I agree with you! Put a minus. Of course, the article gives interesting information, but the journalistic presentation depresses it. Especially surprising is the juggling of the term “militias”.

    Personally, I would not take into account the "data" of "b". A publication that is not just once, or rather, constantly, is distinguished by its, as they consider, "liberal" position.

    Well I do not know. Everything is written here. And I will fly .. And no matter what they think about me. Donbass will not be lost. And why through Iraq. And the passport is not particularly needed. Some kind of nonsense. Through Moscow straight to Damascus. There are practically no tickets to the article. WHY? Yes, because the places are occupied, by the same "idiots" like me. By the way, as I have unsubscribed, the Syrians meet on Ur. Almost at the state level. And the wabble has nothing to do with it.

      Well, I don’t know, Dear Valery, how tactful my commentary will seem to you, but it seems to me that, with a favorable outcome of the operation in Syria, the situation in the Donbass can dramatically change. And the development of events in Syria will be as quick as possible, otherwise we cannot, pulling into a protracted conflict will nullify all the previously achieved successes. And their own land is probably still more important.
      Opinion of course is purely subjective.

      And the loot is really nothing to do with. good hi

      Russian media are becoming more and more like the propaganda department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, for example, VGTRK-propagandists of a television company, it’s hard to name reporters of these people, they lie to the whole country without blushing. For example, Mr. Solovyov, who has been constantly on the screen in recent days, has been cursed by the authorities for 100 years forward or the family tandem of Popov-Skabeev, these are generally lies, manipulation and distortion of the facts by the family business; the propagandist Poddubny, one gets the feeling that the comrade sometimes can’t connect two words and this is the main TV channel of the country, what can we say about other information companies of the country.

        You did not please the propagandists from the CPSU? Prefer Zhenya Ssaki to them? Yes, professionalism is incomparable. And sleight of hand in juggling the facts, and ... you like that your homeland is blamed for EVERYTHING. Do you think it is reasonable to remain silent and wipe yourself?

          No need to distort- "Zhenya Ssaki", as I understand Psaki, it’s their fault to keep silent, to wipe oneself. We must tell the truth, no matter how bitter and pleasant it would be for us, this will only benefit our country, and lying and distorting the facts will not what good will not lead. Yes, just lying and cunning is bad.

        And how many words can you associate under the “torrential” fire?
        Sit silently, tapping your clavs. Yes, and listen to Malakhov and Urgant. Is this certainly NOT a family business ???

    This is all politics. It is necessary to help the Syrians to expel (destroy) the militants, refugees will (probably) return to Europe from the liberated land, as a result, the Germans will not have to flee from refugees to Russia, etc. In short, all this is politics.

    We will help Syria win. Refugees will stop fleeing to Europe, and that, as a sign of great gratitude, will announce next sanctions to us.
    This is possible, but we are helping to destroy the militants so that, one day, they do not come to us.
