Dmitry Steshin: “The war in Syria is not as terrible as in the Donbass”



War correspondent - about the features of the Syrian battles and about the unknown peaceful life
Dmitry Steshin and Alexander Kots, special correspondents of the CP are real heroes of the information war. They covered many military conflicts around the world, spent months in the Donbass, and now they write vivid reports from Syria, where the Russian air operation against the IS is under way. During the holidays, Dmitry Steshin found time to answer the questions of the “Russian Planet”. Voenkor compared the war in Syria and in the Donbass, spoke about what remains behind the scenes, and explained why Russian journalists in Syria work easier than Western.

- Are you in Moscow now. What is the reason for the break in work: some calm, no progress on the front? What is happening in Syria right now?

- A month and a half of a business trip in the combat zone is the limit, you need to recall a person or change. In Syria, protracted battles began, literally for every house or for every meter of the road. For the general reader, this is not so interesting, but we focus on it. I think no one planned in Syria initially breakthroughs hundreds of kilometers inland, huge boilers. With Russian help, they were laid for war to exhaust the enemy. Modern warfare is a war of resources, whoever has more of them has won. Judging by the fact that in the hottest sectors of the front, where we worked - Salma, Idlib, Kharasta, the Jobar region, the “otvetka” practically did not arrive, as it would in the Donbass, the enemy is afraid to identify himself once again. And with ammunition he is very bad. This is the main result of the Russian aviation help. Because a couple of months ago, everything was exactly the opposite.

- You have spent a lot of time in Donetsk. How different are the wars in Syria and Donbas, especially in terms of emotional perception? And what is common?

- “Syrianism” is strongly developed in Syria, this is a term from the Donbass, a lot is invested in it. Defense instability and lethargy in the offensive. The ostentatious disregard for death, turning into senseless losses. Aversion to fortification works, which also has a bad effect on reindeer herds. In general, the war in Syria, as it seemed to us, is not so terrible and cruel. This opinion was first expressed by Semen Pegov (LifeNews war correspondent. - RP). We were still in Moscow, he came to Syria before us. Virtually no counterbattery from the enemy. Syrian artillery hits from one position for a week. In the New Russia is simply impossible to imagine. Part of the war in Syria is in the mountains, at altitudes up to a thousand meters. In addition to the wild and humid climate, the configuration of the front in the mountain war is striking, when there are areas on the road deep in the rear, which the enemy has shot through with 500 meters. Attacks are carried out by assault groups of volunteers, very few. For the entire unit to withdraw and go into a breakthrough, there is no such thing, therefore, very modest results. The equipment of the Syrian fighters is very modest, well, very modest. Personally, I did not see anyone in body armor. Kevlar helmets are rare. Picatinny plate, Weaver bar, collimator sight, grenade launcher, ergonomic handles or butts, G-shock watch, GPS or tablets with maps, unloading or backpacks with MOLLE, berets from world leading manufacturers - none of this is found in the Syrian army or is extremely rare, at the level of statistical error. Or at special forces. But the Syrian army does not fight without gas burners and equipment for making mate. The soldiers are fed in positions by Arabian fast food, which is brought in foil boxes. The quality of this fast food - not every Moscow restaurant will cook this. Otherwise, it seemed to me that the fighters were motivated, after the intervention of Russia, they recovered their spirit and are determined to win. Because there is nowhere to retreat, but there is no bad living under the IG. And the IG in its own madness every day proves it with its videos.

- If hostilities resume in the Donbas, will you return there or will you prefer to work in Syria? Do you think that there is a political agreement on the exchange of Syria to the Donbass?

- Of course, I will return to Donbass. I don’t believe in such exchanges that the "guard patriots" on the plush sofas "saw". Most likely, this is the case: the information focus has shifted from Ukraine to the Middle East, and this is very worrying for the Kiev authorities. I think they understand that as soon as the Syrian crisis is resolved positively, in the Donbass, and throughout the rest of Ukraine, they will begin to straighten the humpbacked people in the opposite direction. And no American 6th fleet will drop landing in Odessa and will not block the entrance to the Black Sea to our North the fleet, eg. Because the Mediterranean Sea is now our inland sea. We have a huge navy base and air base in Latakia on this sea. Such a configuration.

- Are we winning the information war against Western propaganda?

- Judging by the fact that the world's leading agencies bought the filming of two modest Russian journalists Kots and Steshin, they did not have any other sources. The Ministry of Propaganda very tough filters journalists working in the country, and rightly so. Because the example of Graham Phillips (a British journalist who refused to cooperate with leading British media because of differences in the assessment of events in Ukraine. - RP) clearly shows how the Western media work. And you should not think that if you launch a hundred scum with video cameras and one honest journalist into a warring country, the world will immediately believe the latter, the bureaucrats will open their eyes in supranational structures, crack governments, etc. Pigs in the Western media are at the trough so tightly that no foreign snout no longer fit. An honest journalist will simply be disconnected from the air. This is done by clapping one palm. Therefore, the Syrian authorities simply blocked the information tap. Westerners in Syria worked, but were very constrained in their actions. Russian journalists were somewhat easier. But, for example, in Maalyulya, where Sasha and I went without a special attendant, we would not have been allowed. We were watered with coffee, sincerely thanked for the support, but passed through a roadblock only after a series of telephone calls. They vouched for us.

- How in Syria as a whole relate to Russia? Is it connected solely with Russian support or not?

- In Syria, they always treated Russia very well. There are three countries where I feel absolutely comfortable, at home: Serbia, Syria and Mongolia. But Russia's help turned off all the "brakes". We were thanked on the streets, watered with tea, admitted that they were reading our Facebook accounts, sent a bottle of Arak to the restaurant with a note in Russian, “We will not forget your help,” the chef gave us a red star from pita bread. We passed the roadblocks with a whistle, along the “military lane”. They opened a bank for us so that we could pay for the extension of visas. Just do not list, and it is very nice.

- Are you interested in antiques? I liked it very much история about the icon of Our Lady of Tikhvin, which you found at an antique dealer in Syria and returned to your homeland. What historical, cultural, ethnographic evidence of the connection between Russia and Syria did you find or notice?

- The Syro-Yakovite church has long-standing ties with the Russian Orthodox Church, still pre-revolutionary. There has always been a powerful stream of pilgrims. And after any anthropology there are always artifacts. And memory. We accidentally came to the baptism of two twin girls. Their father met us and said literally: “I specifically called my daughters by names adopted in Russia - Anna and Maria. And the fact that Russian journalists came to their baptism, in general, is a sign for me! ”In most of the holy places where we were, in the temples there are icons of traditional Russian writing. In the cell of Saint Thekla the Vladimir Mother of God hangs right at the entrance.

- What remains behind the scenes, what part of the Syrian life can you tell about, which leaves the media attention? There is a peaceful life in the Syrian cities. What is she like?

- I would really like to tell and write something about the Alawites, but I do not know who they are, what they believe in, although I tried to honestly understand from the sources available to me. Peaceful life in Syrian cities is crowded and vain. And waves of aromas of different quality and origin. Walking down the street, you consistently get into the smell of the inside of a ram, slaughtered a long time ago, then some heavy and bright oriental perfume poured over you, followed by a curtain of freshly ground cardamom, the smell of shavarma again and the remains of a slaughtered ram and a bit of sewage . Syrian city life is very secular. You can smoke everywhere. A bunch of shops with alcohol. There is a whole quarter with cinemas where some light eroticism is played. And next to it is a large mosque, and all this is divorced in time and space and does not intersect and does not dominate one over the other. And does not compete with each other. For me, this is a great mystery - how is that?

- The catastrophe of the Russian Airbus A321 over Sinai is a terrorist act, what do you think? What consequences to wait if this version is confirmed?

- Yes, I have no doubt that this is a terrorist act, a big and very bloody hint of Russia. An attempt to worsen our relations with Egypt, with which we again began a “honeymoon” in relations. The only positive thing in this tragedy, forgive me for the cynicism, is the removal of our insane and tired citizens from the combat zone, which is considered tourist by misunderstanding and deceit. Russia absolutely does not need to keep 80 thousands of potential hostages in a country where Islamic extremists have been in power for several years. And after the coup, they have not gone away - there are millions of them in Egypt.

“The war in Syria is only part of world war.” What's next? Where else will flare up?

- I want one thing: no matter where it flashes in the Middle East, but in Syria to go out. So that it becomes an island of security, and Latakia turned into our tourist paradise, where even at the end of October + 35.

      Dmitry Steshin: “The war in Syria is not as terrible as in the Donbass”


      I don’t know the war is not scary, or is it scary to die on one, but not really on the other? And dying children in what war look worse?
      Or is it customary for journalists to shock readers with headlines? sad

        In Syria, everything has already happened, and in Donbass, people can only hope that after Syria Russia will finally have the opportunity to stop the bacchanalia organized by the war criminals of the Kiev junta in the LPR and DPR.
        Apparently, a strange historical pattern is in effect - the Russians have always come to the rescue of other nations in distress much more willingly and faster than their brothers.

            Masks are ripped off: Turkish intelligence chief proposes to recognize Islamic State
            Turkish Foreign Intelligence (MIT) head Hakan Fidan called Russia's military operation in Syria against a terrorist entity calling itself the Islamic State “a serious violation of UN basic principles” and urged Turkey’s Western colleagues to do their utmost “to disrupt Putin’s plans to suppress the Islamic revolution in Syria. "

            “The Islamic state is a reality,” quotes the words of Hakan Fidan, the German news agency AWD, citing a recent report by the Turkish agency Anadolu - We must admit that (with the help of military force - EADaily) we cannot eradicate such a well-organized and popular education as “Islamic state".

            Hakan Fidan also added: Turkey shares the West’s concern about the fact that immigrants from all over the world, including from Europe, are rushing to the IS. In order to resolve this problem, according to the chief of the Turkish special services, it is necessary to open a permanent mission or office of the Islamic State in Istanbul. “This is Turkey’s strong conviction,” Fidan said.

              What do you want?
              1. Turkey buys oil from ISIS
              2. Turkey provides territory for the training and formation of ISIS units
              3. Turkey strikes with its air force on Kurds, ISIS opponents
              Bottom line: Turkey is part of the NATO bloc, and none of the NATO members is outraged by the actions of Turkey, so from their point of view, Turkey is doing everything right.
              Conclusion: Absolutely, the Turks, in arrogance, lost the coast. Yes, they used to be diplomats, for which they raked, periodically.

              Do you really believe in this stuffing? What other Islamic state, no one will ever recognize it in the world, and after the terrorist attacks in Europe ... I doubt that this band will live long! Europe is certainly tolerant, but ... sometimes to save life and to defend oneself, a man compromises his principles, and only animal rage comes out, remember at least their inquisition! And I want to say, now on the streets of Paris and not only, stupid patrols with automatic weapons that have received orders to shoot at defeats at the slightest opposition not submission, but you say ... If a civilized society, whether Russia or France or all of Europe wants to eradicate terror, then believe it will be possible to do it 99%, but the methods should be terrible, right down to burning the whole village or village with napalm, where then the terrorist lived, and his relatives live!

        have journalists decided to shock readers in the headlines?

        He explained how the war in the Donbass differs from Syria:
        - In Syria, “deerism” is highly developed, it is a term from the Donbass, a lot is invested in it. Instability in defense and lethargy in the offensive. The ostentatious neglect of death, resulting in meaningless losses. Aversion to fortification, which also has a bad effect on the “deer” population. In general, the war in Syria, as it seemed to us, is not so terrible and cruel. ... There is practically no counter-battery fight by the enemy. Syrian artillery hits from one position for a week. In New Russia, this is simply impossible to imagine. ... The attacks are carried out by assault groups of volunteers, very few. In order for the entire unit to withdraw and go on a breakthrough, this is not there, and therefore very modest results.

        Steshin is a good journalist with great military experience and has the right to comparison.

          I don’t have anything against the author and put “+” for the article just like you, only I focused on the word “War in Syria” NOT SO SCARY, like in the Donbass. "If you have seen or heard about the NOT SCARY war somewhere, share it, maybe I already forgot how it looks.

            about not a terrible war

            Any death is terrible in itself, even if it is the death of a terrorist and a murderer. Remember the parable of the lost sheep. But death is different, it is one thing when a person dies saving himself the lives of other people and quite another when the other way around. All the cynicism of the situation on a global scale: 150 people died during the attacks in Paris, of course this is a tragedy. But why is there no such reaction of the Western media to the tragedy in the South-East of Ukraine, where more than 5 thousand civilians died in just one year and more than a million became refugees, or to the tragedy in Syria, where 250 thousand people died in 5 years IG, not to mention the millions of civilians killed during US and NATO operations with Iraq, Libya, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and dozens of other countries. Involuntarily one wonders what is worse than terrorism or Western democratizers.

            Look at the past of Dmitry Steshin - a convinced Nazi, a fan of Hitler who worked with Prosvirnin in CIS, who served Khodorkovsky, who lied that he saw Strelkov for the first time (although at that time they were not only familiar with 4 but also had picnics together - there is a photo ) I consider him and Kotz to be those who created false images and propagated hatred in Ukraine.

      Hi !! This is a simple assessment of the situation in Syria through the eyes of a stranger but who was there. The diplomats have a completely different assessment. There are so many opinions. But notice, only our people intuitively give a less qualitative assessment of all these bloody bacchanalia. And most of the opinions of our compatriots coincide in the main thing. And in the main, we are the only Evil should be punished. And here is the main difference from that TRUE DEMOCRACY. They are in advance even before any event, they declare a person a criminal, they appoint some kind of person. And it doesn’t matter how good or bad he is. They can always be corrected by the wrong allies themselves. This is the most important contradiction between us and those in power in the countries of TRUE DEMOCRACY.

    The equipment of the Syrian fighters is very modest, well, very modest. Personally, I did not see anyone in body armor. Kevlar helmets are rare. Picatinny rail, Vivera rail, collimator sight, grenade launcher, ergonomic pens or stocks, G-shock watches, GPS or tablets with maps, unloading or backpacks with MOLLE, berets from leading manufacturers - none of this is in the Syrian army or is extremely rare, at the level of statistical error.

    I understand that everyone is scared in the war and wants to survive, but the bulletproof vest in work in the open is more likely a minus than a plus and you can’t get along with it normally and hamper the movement.
    Because the Mediterranean Sea is now our inland sea. We have a huge navy base and air base in Latakia on this sea. Such a configuration.

    This is generally some kind of nonsense.

            Regarding Algeria, I did not find it, but the military experts were in the period from 1962 to 1991. They trained the Algerian military, cleared territories and waters, organized training centers and trained the Algerian military.

        According to bronik in conditions of open terrain, it is absolutely unnecessary at the first danger a soldier takes emphasis while lying down or seeks shelter, and there and there the body is covered with bronick only overweight. I am for an intermediate version of a shatterproof vest, we flaunted such in Lebanon. A helmet is the first thing because if you want, you don’t want eyes on your head, but shooting without eyes is problematic, so the head is not in shelter.

          A collimator with a flashlight is more for police-type specialists, they break into a stash, scream loudly and shine in the eyes so that the poor fellas grabbing hares do not understand anything and their hands are lifted so that the liver is visible. laughing Even in extensive combat, target designation marks distract attention, at a pace and at a retreat, you burn more with your inner vision, an extension of yourself native. Well, this is of course how someone gets used to it. Bronnik, of course, out of great love for himself, must buy, or remove from someone who does not appreciate the delights of life. Plus a helmet and protection for the neck, total ten - twelve pieces of greens, how to count. The price of relative insurance. It may be cheaper, but you yourself have noted it is inconvenient.

      Motorola would argue with you. If I remember correctly, he talked about four or five cases when he could have been injured or killed if he had not been in protective equipment, including body armor. But this is an example.

      As for the broniks - it all depends on the situation, the theater of operations, the specific area, the specific task, and the quality of the equipment itself.
      You don’t get to storm / clear the building without bulletproof vest? And if you need to ride through the mountains, will you take body armor with you or not?

And on the territory of Turkey, terrorists study and get help across the border, and there are Russian tourists. Why? They are waiting for a downed plane in Turkey, and then only people will be evacuated from there. Negligence for which to plant.

      This is not a civil war in the Donbass, it can be called so in the old way. It is an interethnic, interethnic war, a war between the Pshekogalicians, who consider themselves great Ukrainians, and the Russian people, who have been living in their lands for centuries, but who have been transferred to Lenin’s decree by fraternal, agrarian Ukraine for the rise of industry back in the 20s of the last century. Civil war a priori cannot be such on linguistic, interethnic and historical grounds. Now
      Russians are at war with polished Ukrainians, Catholics and Orthodox. Banderogalians began their crusade, a bloody campaign on Russian Orthodox lands

    The problem is Blackwater (an American private military company, after a series of scandals renamed Academi). These people declare themselves Syrian opposition, but get paid from external sources. Russia several times invited the opposition to negotiations in Moscow, but no one came. When the Syrian president was in Russia and met with Putin, issues of countering terrorism and political settlement were discussed. The US reaction to this was the supply of weapons to the rebels. That’s the answer, what future does the USA want for Syria.

By the way, these are the first journalists. Who honestly wrote about the events in South Ossetia. It was boldly written about the execution of our armored column on the outskirts of Tskhinval. against the background of general syrupiness. Regarding this stuff. With Steshin’s permission, I’ll write some lines in my memorial for further quotation: …….
    In Syria, “deerism” is very developed, it is a term from the Donbass, a lot is invested in it ... .... The troughs in the Western media are so tight at the trough that no one else's snout will fit. An honest journalist will simply be disconnected from the air .......... There are three countries where I feel absolutely comfortable at home: Serbia, Syria and Mongolia ......... began the removal of our crazy and tired citizens from the war zone, which due to misunderstanding and cunning considered tourist.

    Do not shoot the pianist - he plays as he can! the guy is really at war, have many been at war lately? yes there are reservations, but it’s not with evil, but rather from fatigue. and ours in Egypt are not particularly scared, judging by the reports. and they are taken out quite evenly and in heap, without any panic.

    People were in 2 wars - respect. But whether it was THEIR wars - life will show.

    There can be no terrible war, another fearless. They are all scary. However, it doesn’t matter what it is for those who are fighting, it’s military, it’s his duty and somehow sideways, it’s terrible for him (consumables, yes, yes, consumables) or not. But it is definitely scary for peaceful people. ISIS burns them alive, cuts their heads, shoots, crushes tanks. And this war is not worse than in the Donbass? Poor little article.

    Arabs both live and fight. Slowly, with comfort. For us Russians, such a war is amazing, but for them the norm. Even in the Arab-Israeli war, it surprised me that the Arabs performed the prayer during the fighting, and the Israelis “crushed” them at that time. Their mentality is "there is no hurry, everything is in the hands of Allah."
