Antonov: a memorandum signed by representatives of the Russian Federation and the United States regulates the actions of all aircraft over the territory of Syria

49
The memorandum on the safety of flights in the skies over Syria, signed on Tuesday by Russia and the United States, regulates the actions of all airplanes and UAVs there, reports RIA News Post Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov.




“We consider it a positive step to sign a memorandum of understanding between the Russian Ministry of Defense and the US Department of Defense on preventing incidents and ensuring flight safety aviation during the operation in the Syrian Arab Republic, ”said Antonov.

According to him, “the document is of great practical importance, since it regulates the actions of manned and unmanned aerial vehicles in the airspace over Syria.”

“The memorandum contains a set of rules and restrictions designed to prevent incidents between Russian and US aviation,” the deputy minister added.

The Pentagon is also satisfied with the joint work done on the preparation and approval of a single document. They said that the parties were still able to agree on the establishment of a channel of communication in case of emergency.

“In the case of a downed pilot or an aircraft in an emergency, both parties must communicate with each other via the newly established channel. Further actions will be determined during the incident, ”said the representative of the military department, Michel Baldans.

Another representative of the Pentagon, Peter Cook, said at a briefing on the agreement reached on the "safe distance between the aircraft." True, he could not bring any exact data, and only suggested that these distances "should not be so close."

Cook explained that the Russians were not allowed to disclose the contents of the memorandum to the general public. “(Russia) a corresponding request was made, I don’t know what the reasons are for this,” he said.

Less than others were happy about the signing of the document in the State Department. "The signing of the memorandum, although important to ensure the safety of air operations, does not change our position and does not remove our fears," said a spokesman for the agency, John Kirby.

"The United States wants the military support of the Assad regime to cease," he explained.

"The memorandum is not a breakthrough in the political transition in Syria, ... nothing has changed in our position that there is no military solution to the civil war in Syria," said Kirby.

          If only politicians in the person of McCain and his ilk did not intervene in this matter.

          But actually, what are the aviation of the USA, France doing in the sky of Syria, and who else was there? Who invited them there?
          As far as I remember, there is no UN resolution on the action of international forces in Syria.
          The Russian Air Forces, I would like to say the usual Air Force, were invited by the official authorities of Syria to assist in the fight against international terrorism, ISIS.
          What are the US doing there? Violate all conceivable international laws. Or for the United States, due to its exceptional nature, everything is allowed, they did not care at all, and do what they want?
          Does the whole world dance to the tune of the USA? What is the memorandum? Here it is necessary at the UN to raise the issue of illegal actions by the United States and its satellites, their illegal actions in Syria.

          I suppose that the conversation can go on a political settlement of the conflict, because the state of war cannot last forever, it’s a road to nowhere, it’s quite possible to replace Assad’s figure with some of his supporters, but with a slightly different solution to the conflict, Assad himself stated that if necessary, he will leave his post

          our TU-95s constantly intercept over the seas and oceans, but this does not mean that they are being shot down. In peacetime, the interceptor catches up with the target, recognizes it, takes a position for using weapons and waits for a command from the ground about further actions (knock down, force to land, etc.) in this case, the target was identified as a drone of a fsch, but could be destroyed on command from the ground.

        Any serious and working! agreements with the mattress were concluded only when there was power and industrial (and, accordingly, economic) parity. Only when the mattresses feel that they can be sent an answer on any fields of human activity only then they are negotiable. In all other cases, their contracts are not like ink papers.

      that's why they signed a memorandum so that they could not afford anything extra.
      squeezing them by force is a war, and a serious war. as well as they were legally tied to how they behave and what they can and cannot do.
      therefore, in the State Department, this memorandum is not welcome.

        I agree to all 100. Yes, they illegally fly in the sky of Syria, but it is not our responsibility to transport them from there, but we can do this to limit their permissiveness and ensure flight safety, which we did soldier

      What makes you think that we recognize the right of mattresses to the sky of Syria?
      The sky of Libya and Iraq is the patrimony of the mattress coalition, and in Syria they have nothing to do, since only the Russian aerospace forces are there legally, which we all made clear to all parties to the conflict.
      Просто есть приграничные зоны, где самолёты могут выйти "на контакт". Эту тему и утрясли.
      But the question of providing mutual assistance in conducting activities to search for and evacuate downed pilot mattresses has not yet been supported.
      We only agreed on a communication channel for this case. Obviously, they do not assume the loss of coalition air force aircraft, preparing this fate exclusively for Russian aircraft - but in vain.

In this situation, they first declared that the fleet’s air defense would not allow anyone outside of Syria to fly, and then they allowed the amers to sign a memorandum, shouting to the whole country that this was another BB victory, although it doesn’t smell like victory.

      глядя на недовольство госдепа, скорей всего меморандум подписан на НАШИХ условиях. Думаю, мы "попросили" партнеров кое о чем, типа "НЕ ВЛЕЗАЙ - УБЬЕТ!" Из чего следует - ну, так и быть - вы пока полетайте, там где нам пока не нужно, вот и все! repeat да и по пилотам наши только на днях предупреждали - мало ли что! накаркали - "неумеренные" обстреляли американский самолет, пилот посбрасывал все что только можно, лишь бы спастись! и вот сегодня подписан документ и о сотрудничестве в спасении если кого собьют... не дай Бог ПЗРК от "партнеров" поступать начнут массово, опять будут бить по коалиционной авиации - кар-кар winked
