    This is good and right. Maybe heavy-duty transporters will be able to land with heavier equipment and in addition, cargo turnover will increase.
    Developed transport communications contribute to the development of the economy.

      And it looks like Russia will increase our VKS grouping more and more, and will also supply more equipment. A lot depends on logistics.

      Yeah, "the Syrian government will expand," who else? Especially Latakia and Tartus smile
      But, in general, optimism pleases - Aleppo has not yet been taken, and there are already plans to expand the airport there. So, they will take it soon.

          Optimism, Assad from Moscow I brought. But no one will restore the transport infrastructure, which means there are economic types. While progressive Western democracy grunts about the Russian bombing of GDP, it began to take root. good

            Most importantly, it is an indicator of the seriousness of our intentions. Since we are talking about infrastructure, then we are there for a long time. Syria has a strategically important location, if we take it into our orbit - EURAS, SCO up to the CSTO, this will seriously strengthen us. Of course, there are also disadvantages - its problems become our problems, but we cannot become a global power without taking responsibility for our allies. To expand the business you have to take risks. In my opinion, the risk is justified and the gain is worth it. Someone may consider that not - his right. However, there is a great opportunity to appreciate our elite. We have mattresses in Syria seriously stepped on the tail and now they will begin to raise all their agents in the Russian Federation to fight against the operation in Syria. So if a "patriot" or a famous person or "democracy and communist" sharply begins to criticize our operation in Syria - it immediately becomes clear who is pulling his strings. The first swallows have already gone - Girkin and El-Murid. It was even interesting whether they would openly scorch or not, but the guys did not disappoint - they surrendered themselves with giblets. laughing We are waiting for the next one to be revealed to us from an interesting perspective.

        In Tartus, instead of the MTO point, it is necessary to build a full-fledged naval base, such as Mediterranean Sevastopol
        , and in Latakia - a full-fledged air force base, so that the Tu-160 could be based. Then the presence in the middle-earth will be provided to the full, and if you create a normal squadron - in general a fairy tale.

          Of course, I would like Russia to take a firm foot on the Mediterranean. At the same time, some not quite adequate figures from NATO and those who want to enter there pour a cold shower. But this is not a matter of the near future, given the current state of the Russian economy, its shipbuilding and aircraft industries, the creation of another full-fledged naval base with its own squadron of ships and airbase with its own aviation component is good wishes, not supported by appropriate capabilities. But you need to strive for this, because it is very important for a country that positions itself as one of the poles (power, international authority, attraction - as you wish) of a multipolar world, and most importantly - it has recently taken concrete steps in this direction, even if it may be forced, but still real. What did not go unnoticed for the whole world.
          And for Syria, the expansion and modernization of seaports and airports is vital, especially in the long term, which, I hope, this country has, and they are prospects for a positive plan.
          I have the honor.

            But you can’t save on this, it is a matter of life and death. It is necessary to find an opportunity, if necessary, to dispossess any bastard of the bureaucrats, to reduce non-target expenses. If the nuclear weapons on the TU-160 will be based in Syria, plus submarine missile carriers - and let them build missile defense systems around Russia even to the point of turning blue.

          Firstly, we have them - one or two, and miscalculated ... Whenaaaa there will be new Tu-160Ms ...

          Secondly, no one, and most likely - never, never "puts" the base of strategists with nuclear weapons there ...

          It’s only the Yankees who risk having nuclear weapons at their foreign bases ... It’s a pity the Germans never get their role as a guarantee in the confrontation between the USA and Russia ...

          I don’t understand why the White Swans should be relocated to Latakia. Tu-22M3 is still understandable (and even that is quite controversial), but why pure strategists? Discover the grand design.

          Let me say that the "strategists" have nothing to do there. They should be based on Russian territory. And to carry out their tasks, they use cruise missiles of the appropriate range (we will not give specific data) and, having the ability to perform low-altitude flight with the envelope of the terrain. Missiles are launched from a zone inaccessible to air defense systems of a potential enemy.

        “There are plans to expand the port of Tartus, the airports of Latakia, Damascus and Aleppo, as well as the expansion of the railway branch”

        If Assad wins, then the restoration of the destroyed infrastructure will require the help of other countries with money and building materials. Therefore, expansion of airfields and restoration of railway tracks are so necessary! The Syrians think right: here is not only the expansion of our base, but the ability to receive as many aircraft and convoys as possible with humanitarian and non-humanitarian assistance.

      Developed transport communications contribute to the development of the economy.


      Three Russian An-124 heavy cargo planes have landed at Basil Assad International Airport in Syrian Latakia over the past few days.

      http://www.warandpeace.ru/ru/news/view/104866/
      On Tuesday, the network of correspondents got video of the French television channel TF1, filmed at the airport Latakia. It can be seen transport An-124, as well as combat aircraft Su-24 and Mi-24. On the Syrian LuftwaffeAS blog on Wednesday published a photo of Mi-24, flying in the sky over the local airfield.

      But Yushchenko forgot to add that the Prime Minister is going to do this through loans from the Russian Federation, because it’s clear even to a child that in Syria there is no economy due to complete devastation, and Assad is waging war from loans from Russia.

      And about the economic potential, the Economic Center of Syria Aleppo, has become a theater of war. The borders are not controlled. So there can be no talk of any economy

      If today Assad, in an interview with our parliamentarians, expressed a desire to hold an early presidential election, plus to participate in the elections, as well as confidence in his victory in these elections, it is difficult to call it “euphoria” ... Still, not a kid, a serious politician and must soberly assess their capabilities ...

      So, there is confidence in victory ... And Russia helped him gain this self-confidence ...

      In general, do not care for Assad, Gaddaf, Arab allies (). The main thing is that igil and other plague scum should not come to us in Russia. If for this you need to get rid of Assad, then you need to get rid of. If you need to support Asad for this, then you need to support.

    The Syrian government has decided to provide greater convenience for our fleet and VKS, especially since the war is not eternal and then all this will be very useful

      "war is not eternal"- it if our troops, the Navy and the VKS are there. And if they leave, it will definitely be eternal. I hope that they, the Syrians, understood this.

    No need to look for momentary benefits. Syria wants to live on, for this it is necessary to develop. And for Russia, the benefit is at least that it will have a strong ally.

    Well, in Tartus, it seems, and now, dredging is underway.
    Otherwise, where will the former Turkish bulk carriers moor ...
    I won’t say anything about take-off and Tu-160,
    but probably also thought out.

    And not only an ally, but with the revival of a full-fledged Army with the Navy and Air Force, an outpost of peace and stability on the BV, well, our control over the BV and the Mediterranean even in the next 20 years. And during this time, the monarchies there can "rest in the Bose." We will suppress the appetites of Turkey and Israel, you see, and Palestine will visit the world. Everything can be done with the help of “affection” and “food”, and not just “divide and rule” politics, which in itself is temporary and does not lead to peace! hi

      Weasel and food - translated into the language of finance: billions of dollars.

      Where from?
      Syria does not (war), Russia does not (sanctions).
      Hope only a little bit on Iran
      (if they start selling oil).

    Well said. Ah Ukraine, how did you allow an epidemic on your territory, you were led to the European Union vaccine, and vaccinations are also dangerous. Now it is necessary to treat it operatively.

    apparently, we will win in our economy and we will win in the external arena. So, Medvedev has the ball. Indirectly, everything depends on him, especially if he thinks to work in the Kremlin in the future.
