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

Подписанный во вторник Россией и США меморандум о безопасности полётов в небе над Сирией регламентирует действия всех находящихся там самолётов и беспилотников, передаёт 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.

«США хотят, чтобы военная поддержка режима Асада прекратилась», – пояснил он.

"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.

          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.

Только когда матрасники чуют что им могут прислать ответку на любых полях деятельности человеческой только тогда они догововороспособны. Во всех остальных случаях их договоры не то что бумаги чернил дешевле.

      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.
      There are simply border areas where airplanes can get in touch. This topic has been settled.
      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.
      The air defense systems, which will probably be transferred by the Saudis of the “moderate opposition”, will equally hit on all the planes and helicopters, for the frightened bearded no difference - just to shout Alla louder to the bar.

      the usual behavior of the guarantor of the constitution is to splurge, to pretend that everything is a bundle in the hope that no one will understand what is actually happening. 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.

      looking at the dissatisfaction of the State Department, most likely the memorandum was signed on our terms. I think we “asked” our partners for something, such as “DON'T BREAK IN - KILL!” From which it follows - well, so be it - while you fly, where we do not need it yet, that’s all! repeat Yes, and our pilots just the other day warned - you never know what! got drunk - "immoderate" fired at the American plane, the pilot threw everything that is possible, just to be saved! and today a document has been signed on cooperation in salvation if anyone is knocked down ... God forbid, MANPADS will begin to arrive from "partners" en masse, they will again hit coalition aviation - car-car winked

Без их Активного "участия", с терроризмом справятся быстрее и эффективнее. Страна"Паразит" со своей политикой и "демократией" достала уже многих.В частности и Сирию, куда их никто не приглашал, да и сама Америка ни у Сирийского правительства, ни в Совете Безопасности не спрашивала разрешения.
