Russian Foreign Ministry: Russia will assess the possibility of applying air strikes on positions of ISIL in Iraq, if it receives an official appeal from Baghdad

48
RIA News Today it is disseminating a statement from the Russian Foreign Ministry, which says that if the Iraqi authorities make a formal request to conduct an air operation against ISIL militants, Russia will consider such an appeal. The report says that the Russian Federation, when considering, will take into account the political and military expediency of such measures.


RIA News cite a statement by the Director of the Department for New Challenges and Threats of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia, Ilya Rogachev:

Either we will have a corresponding appeal from the government of Iraq, or a resolution of the Security Council, the adoption of which depends crucially on the will of the government of Iraq. If there are such sufficient grounds, both political and military expediency will be assessed.

Напомним, что накануне - 30 сентября ВКС РФ приступили к нанесению aviation ударов по позициям террористов на территории Сирии. По сведениям Минобороны, российские военные лётчики уничтожили штаб боевиков, склад с вооружениями и боеприпасами, несколько военных объектов, принадлежащих так называемому «Исламскому государству». При поддержке ВКС РФ сирийская армия освободила несколько населённых пунктов севернее Хомса.

In the liberal environment, we already said that at the points marked on the map, "for sure there is no ISIS", but there is a "Syrian free army". I wonder how these gentlemen, lying on their sofas, determine where ISIS is, and where it is not? Or who prompts? ..

And it has literally just become known that the Prime Minister of Iraq, Haider Al-Abadi, stated that although he did not discuss with Vladimir Putin the question of the participation of the Russian Aerospace Forces in the operation against ISIL, he would have welcomed it if Russia had started such an operation.

    Oops! Not just that the Federation Council approved the use of the RF Armed Forces not only in Syria, but outside the Russian Federation!
    And then yesterday (Evening with Solovyov), the liberals began to stink: "When the Federation Council in Ukraine gave permission to use the army only in Ukraine! And here? What? Putin wants to take over the whole world ??? Ahh? How will civilized countries look at us?" ! "
    Dry your snot! Everything goes according to plan!

        I do not think that Baghdad is Iraqi. If they ask, we should keep in mind who "put those rulers there." Why do we need American puppets? (well, if only the interests temporarily coincide. So you also need to remember that TEMPORARILY)

      It would be nice if the CSTO Air Force and BRICS joined, and maybe Egypt and Algeria.

      So, 30 September 2015 missile and bomb strikes were carried out on 8 targets in three provinces for which it was committed 20 sorties. Three regions are absolutely clearly localized - the north of the province of Homs (Rastan and Telbisa), the north of the province of Hama (Kafr Zita and Latamna) and the border of both provinces in the east (east of Salamia).

      The fourth was Idleb province, where government troops suffered a heavy defeat in the summer. Our North Syria (Aveppo, Raqqah, Khasaka Ave.) ours, perhaps, will not touch because the Americans working from the Turkish Incirlik air base dominate here.

      In general, with the forces at the disposal of the Russian contingent, it is hardly possible to act equally effectively throughout Syria. Difficulties can arise when flying over the provinces of Deir ez-Zor and Deraa (Americans, Jordanians, and French fly here). Therefore, the Russian zone of influence is limited to the provinces of Latakia, Hama, Homs, Damascus and, possibly, Idleb (although the Americans did not specifically agree to the latter).

      1 October 2015 Russian aviation has inflicted no less 30 strokes according to the positions of the militants - the district of Jisr al-Shugur (Idleb ave.). While the military are doing their job, politics is theirs. Lavrov said that "ISIS targets alone would be bombed," although Jisr al-Shugur is the Islamist coalition of Jaysh al-Fatah.

We have another base and the whole world striped mixed with guano. The invaders can’t do anything, but we said we came to protect you. You can understand the Iraqis. They understand that ISIS squeezed out of Syria will go to them in full force. There is only one thing left, to spit on the advisers of the invaders and make the right decision. Will they be able (that is, will) allow them.

    For me, it’s even good that they’re bombing the SSA’s positions; they are much more dangerous for Assad’s troops than ISIS at the moment.

    I would like to draw the attention of colleagues who advocate "exporting our participation" in the flesh to the "last sea", on one important aspect, namely the economic component. It is necessary to soberly evaluate our financial capabilities, and as if there was no tempting desire to solve everything in one fell swoop, everything must be calculated very carefully.

    Comrades, the state of the Syrian and Iraqi armies should be taken into account. If the Syrians are ready to fight to the last and have already demonstrated this repeatedly, then the situation with the Iraqis is still more deplorable. The control structure is virtually absent, there are no normal units either, the situation with weapons is also not so hot. Here at least the Syrians on earth are clearing everything, but in Iraq, who will be clearing?

    Said by our one important thing. Until Iraq officially, formally asks, we will simply observe and discuss. That would not be in the future statements about the treacherous invasions of our air forces and unreasonable bombing. And the official invitation will be. For soon ISIS will begin to spread from Syria to neighboring territories. And if you don’t begin to pinch him there, then it will be bad for everyone. The fact that America and the European coalition stands for contacts with us is purely in order to remove ISIS from under our attacks in advance. So it’s worthwhile to warn when the planes started bombing.
