Military Review

Syria is writing, Ukraine is in the mind

So, by observing everything that is happening in the Middle East, a certain geopolitical conclusion can be made: the United States and its allies did not even have a fair click, but a blow to the nose. And the Middle East scenario has to be played, given the emergence of a new player - Russia. The appearance of a sudden, but spectacular.

The fact that everything is just beginning for Assad may be debatable, but true. Just because no one will pass their positions. Neither Syria nor LIH, nor the United States and his followers. So the Syrian bonfire is still burning and burning. The blessing of those who want to splash gasoline on the fire even more than enough

But before the above, we, in principle, do not have much to do. We have our own shovel, which should be threshed. And this is what I’m talking about.

Yes, the position that Russia occupies today, to some of the "partners" is like a knife near one place. And the space around us will “stagger” with a double eagerness. Do something need something! You want, you do not want, and the Russian bear is necessary either in a cage or in hibernation. At the wrong time, he climbed into the light of day.

If you look at the map, there are plenty of "lights" around us. And even a cursory looking at the list of "fires", the picture is not very. Even if you subtract Syria, where the dance has already gone "with the removal of the stove" (forgive me, the Caspian Sea, which compared with the stove), the list is rather big.

1. Tajikistan (Afghanistan). Afghanistan in brackets, but not in brackets. And the events in Kunduz showed it. It was a reconnaissance battle, the battle showed everything. Now it will be some time quiet.

2. Karabakh It’s still relatively quiet there, but you shouldn’t forget that this is not just a painful point of the region, it’s a whole site. Two lines intertwine around it: Russia-Armenia and Turkey-Azerbaijan. And taking into account some complications with the Turks, there too can go towards ignition.

3. Transnistria. Also a pain point, which is very easy to push. They tried to push, but somehow everything calmed down too quickly. It is impossible to say what happened on the Transnistrian front, but the fact that ours there also worked in full is unambiguous.

4. Ukraine. Naturally. Technical default is just the beginning. Plus, LDNR, in which, frankly, not everything is smooth, even more so. Some actions of the leadership of the republics cause, if not fear, then surprise.

Of course, any of these points could be very hot. In some moment. Moreover, in three of them the presence of "partners" is more than obvious. Afghanistan, Moldova (Romania), Ukraine. With Karabakh it may not be so sad, but there is enough local color from Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Still, Ukraine is the most likely option to start a new cycle of operations "Stop the Bear!"

Yes, the Ukrainian authorities will go to great lengths in order to be able to survive for a certain amount of time. Get more money. Weapons. Techniques. The peaceful life of Ukraine is unprofitable. There is nothing to live for. The economy is in complete disarray. But this has already been said so much that it makes no sense to repeat.

And it turns out that Ukraine in the foreseeable future is the most optimal testing ground in order to distract Russia from Middle Eastern affairs. Bring the focus of instability or another military conflict to our borders. Yes, the interests of the United States in the Ukrainian mess are less and less, after all, the titanic efforts of our management team in the implementation of the Minsk agreements have brought their benefits. Does not burn. Smolders, but does not burn. Despite even some frank oddities in the behavior of LDNR leaders.

The interests of the United States, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey there, in the Middle East. Where Russia broke so immediately and unexpectedly. It turned out about as with the Crimea. We did not expect, but it turned out like.

But do not flatter yourself. It will take a certain amount of time, and the "partners" will work out another plan for the "stabilization of Russia." And they will begin to act. And the actions will be directed precisely to divert attention from Syria. Softly and directly, "zaydanit" in the immediate vicinity except in Ukraine, more and nowhere in principle. So it makes sense to wait for it to light up there.

So really, Syria - Syria, but Ukraine should not be discounted.

    Ukraine can no longer be taken into account, the country is bankrupt. GDP mockingly suggested that the IMF give 3 a lard to Ukraine to repay the loan to us. But we know that there will be no credit and in December a limited default will be real. But then a flock of lenders will tear the country to pieces.

      1. More recently, or rather, during a meeting with Putin, Obama said that in Syria there is no moderate opposition, and there are only international ISIS terrorists.
      После того, как подразделения ИГИЛ понесли ощутимые потери от российской авиации, а один из их главарей был уничтожен, США стали истерично обвинять Россию в бомбёжке "несуществующей" умеренной оппозиции.
      2. A year and a half, the Ukrainian authorities and Poroshenko personally accused Russia of invading Ukraine, without citing any evidence. In Syria, Russia has shown what the Russian army is that can destroy the enemy with precision weapons without engaging in ground combat.
      3. During the inauguration, Poroshenko promised the Ukrainians in several days to finish the ATO, to pay 1000 hryvnias per day to the soldiers participating in the ATO, visa-free travel to the EU, .. and much more. He did not fulfill a single promise.
      4. В украинских СМИ постоянно муссируется тема "нищей и голодной России". В то же время, ежегодно до 5 миллионов украинцев едут на заработки именно в Россию.
      In that case, I congratulate you - YOU!

    The number of Russian planes in Syria is clearly not enough for the victory of Assad’s army or for large-scale offensives. In order for the war in Syria not to become a tyagomotin, it is necessary to increase the number of aircraft well, at least to 150 units. Otherwise, I think it will not burn out

      We did a great job, supported morale, pulled ISIS, created a panic, maybe threw weapons / equipment to the Syrians, now it's their turn.

    Хилари как то заявила, что Россия дорого заплатит за свою позицию по Сирии и вот, во время олимпиады стартовал проект "нацисткая украина". Конечно это была заготовка и выстрелить это должно было чуть позже, но надо было нанести удар перед подписанием договора Евразийского союза, да и выбить наших с Ближнего Востока, а самим "втихую" добиться там своего. американцы отличаются упрямством в достижении своих целей - не впрямую, так вкруговую, но соего будут добиваться, пока по мордасам не схлопочут - понимают только язык силы. Поэтому все наши действия в Сирии абсолютно верны: выпнуть англо-саксов оттуда кирзовым сапогом, да и наши молодые ВКС отработать, тем более, что много еще "тлеющих костров" в округе зреет.

    Well, I don’t understand where the igil came from in Afghanistan? Iran is from the west, and he is fighting us against them. Is Uzbekistan and Tajikistan also against them, China? He himself is sharpening his teeth on Islamists. It turns out Pakistan? He seems to be in the CU and even in the CSTO asks. Where is the water supply from? There is no oil, no transportation, no weapons (yes there was it in bulk, here Najibula held on for 2 years, but still).

      an example just happened before my eyes.
      I work in a law firm in the center of Kiev.

      A private notary sits in our office. he has his own clients, we have our own.
      As usual in the office, there is a guard that keeps anyone out.
      Grandfather 75-80 years old, very flabby and poor looking, went to a notary under the guise of a client.
      apparently he was mistaken for a client and missed.
      так вот: попросил денег, на него сразу все начали давить , мол "покиньте офис и т.п., ща вызовем охрану".
      In general, we came to the conclusion that our people will think over how they can help and get in touch.
      But this is all the background.
      Захожу в кабинет свой, сидит PR-щица. должность крайне "важная" для общества и процветания страны в целом. Получает примерно 20-30 пенсий этого дедули. спрашивает у меня , что случилось.
      я ей объяснил , что мол "дедуля зашел, просил денег, бальной, старенький и т.п. решили скинуться кто чем может, передать ему при встрече завтра". Ответ: возмущение, кто и почему его сюда пропустил. И вообще недоумение как такое возможно.
      я задаю ей вопрос:"ты забыла в какой стране живешь? забыла про урвоень жизни 90% населения Украины? или же ты думаешь, что все получают хотя бы половину как ты?! ответ:кто им мешает зарабатывать".
      This ended the dialogue. While there are such, while THESE are in their heads SUCH! nobody will change anything here. shorter muck alone! live with a veil in the eyes in the form of triple pink glasses. or just chhali on the rest.

    Ukraine is bankrupt, but Russia does not feel any better, it is Russia that will have to restore its economy and statehood ..., the West will impose the restoration of Ukraine on Russia

    How to impose? Hollande and Merkel will order, and Putin will rush to execute? If there is anything Russia will do in Ukraine, it is only on the basis of its own interests, as their leadership sees.
    It is desirable, of course, that the interests of the leadership as much as possible coincide with the interests of Russia.

    "Так что действительно, Сирия — Сирией, но Украину не стоит сбрасывать со счетов."

    Конечно не следует, но с потерей Крыма, как следующей базой НАТО, НАТОвцы не смирились. НАТО, возглавляемое СГА, для контроля воздушной обстановке над Укропией забрали весь контроль во под себя. Для этого "великие украинцы" безвозмездно(не считая взяток) передали им все свои диспетчерские вышки для модернизации и дальнейшего использования. Теперь американцы уже будут контролировать все воздушное пространство на Укропией. А дальнейшее вползание в НАТО превратит остатки бандеространы в ближние базы НАТО. Так что с потерей Крыма СГА вовсе не прекращают попыток раздуть костер войны против России ,причем руками политических придурков из Европы. Как видим какловские правители просто представляют интересы янки, но не своего народа. soldier

    If you think about it, the direction of the enemy’s main strike will certainly come from Ukraine.
    1-It’s close, 2- Ukrainians are not Arabs, and if they know how to fight, 3 are near Europe and she, frightened by blackmail by the Americans, will act on the side of Ukraine.
    But not everything is so simple.
    1- Close can play the opposite effect, close inexhaustible rear. 2 - From our side, volunteers will simply dofiga, not counting the regular army. 3- not everyone already in Ukraine wants the Bandera regime, the resistance will be in the rear and not small.

    Remember that our enemy is a chess player and he will download data a hundred times to a super computer. And the computer will issue a verdict - the best direction for the main blow is just Syria.
    1- it is very difficult to replenish the ammunition and the supply of equipment 2 - While the group is small. 3- Almost complete hostile environment. 4- A vital threat to Saudi Arabia and Qatar with almost unlimited monetary resources. 5- China will not interfere in the affairs of Syria.
