Media: Russia, in addition to Hmeimim, uses two more airfields in Syria

45
The publication "Kommersant" writes that in addition to the main air base "Khmeimim" aviation The Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria use two more airdromes - one in the Homs province, the other - near the city of Palmyra, which (the city) is still being controlled by Daesh (ISIS) militants. The first airfield is located in Shayrat, the second - in Al-Taias. At the same time, Kommersant refers to an information agency Riderand Reuters, in turn, refers to the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, whose main and only office is in London.


Also, Kommersant writes that information about the use of airdromes "Shairat" and "Al-Tayas" as the so-called aerodromes of a jump, a certain unnamed source in the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation told the publication. Official data from the main defense department of the country, confirming or refuting this kind of information, has not yet been reported.

Media: Russia, in addition to Hmeimim, uses two more airfields in Syria


Experts believe that the presence of several “jump” airfields for Russian aviation is necessary due to the fact that attack helicopters have a relatively small radius of action and cannot effectively support ground forces - the forces of the Syrian government army and the militia, taking to the air exclusively from the Hmeimim airbase ".

Recall that the air group VKS RF conducts a counter-terrorist operation in Syria at the request of the official authorities of this country. All the states that make up the so-called American coalition actually invade an independent state, since they have neither the mandate of the UN Security Council, nor an invitation from official Damascus.

    Not enough India, China, Kazakhstan, Armenia. Where are our allies? Okay, India and China, of course, I got excited, but the CSTO

    Carrying chestnuts out of the fire with the hands of the Russian Federation and Iran is certainly cool, but where is Belarus? Or Lukashenko, as always, handsome and not there and there, but as be by himself.

    Or is the CSTO when the Russian Federation protects everyone, and in which case the Russian Federation is alone with its own (and with its own or with common?) Problems?

          Absolutely.
          First of all, this is too loudly said. Rather, partners in the CSTO. Of all the members of our CSTO, only Kazakhstan and Belarus have real opportunities to help carry out operations against the needles. And the ally officially for Russia is only Belarus, but even that has never been eager to fight our enemies. In general, Kazakhstan has never been seen in Russia's assistance.

          So such a formal alliance gives Russia the opportunity, only to create bridgeheads I use the territories of the CSTO countries if necessary. Russia is fighting, unfortunately alone.

            I wonder how we can help? Minsk is thinking of opening a Russian air base. Kazakhstan only has 30 of the new Su-4SM. The rest of the junk (MiG-29, Su-27, Su-25, Su-24 are all in storage) and many with exhausted resources. Recently, by analogy with your teachings, when everyone was raised "to the ears", we only had 100 aircraft able to start the engines and several were with flights. There are from the repair of the MiG-31 pieces 9-12. There are refurbished and modernized Mi-24s (but few). So our Air Force pants support, I must admit that I used to have a better idea of ​​them. And with ammunition in general seams.
            And there is no land operation. In our Collective Security Treaty Organization peacekeepers - brigade and DShB. By the way, on Wednesday, the CSTO meeting on the downed Su-24. hi

        So I about the same, maybe in the CSTO it was necessary to take Syria and Iran? Something they were closer in spirit than all of the above?

        ISIS is already in Afghanistan, where is Tajikistan? Or is he mink?

        This is PPC, with Iran, in fact, became allies in this conflict, and ours ... behave like ours

        I don’t even want to check the CSTO for lice, if Turkey begins a conflict with NATO.

        I already see how Lukashenko begins to say that they say that we are allied with the Russian Federation, but there is such a thing, you yourself understand ...

        And Kazakhstan, because of the sagging ruble, has become so weak that this is not our war and all things.

        It was necessary to enter into an alliance with the Mongols, although their state is not very strong, but in alliance with them I am 100% sure

        Daesh has long been in Tajikistan, since 2011 + Daesh has been actively occupying areas in Afghanistan

        Around the same time, gangsters from the Caucasus began to swear allegiance to rats

        Or do you think Kazakhstan does not have this problem? Do not bury your head in the sand.

        The invasion does not stop with the collapse of the USSR. It's just that everyone has active invasion phases in their heads (the first Chechen, the second, etc.). And so this process does not stop. Cells are and are waiting for their time.

        I don’t expect much from Kazakhs and Belarusians. I do not wait for hundreds of planes and soldiers - but I wait for support at the level of instructors (stupidly for 10 people, to indicate my position)

        Our federal channels should tell the news in this vein - Russia and its CSTO allies have begun the active phase of the operation and blah blah blah.

        And then from watching the news, a weak mind raises questions - why is Russia alone against the whole world? Maybe really the Russian Federation is not right? Since the whole world is standing on the sidelines, and the hut generally says that we and the threat are about the same level

        Meanwhile, Lukashenko packs Belarusian shrimps in sauce and courageously expects the sixth US fleet off its shores

        - I think no. There can be no ceiling after the statement by Vladimir Putin that the Russian military are fighting for their country in Syria, and thereby ensure national security at distant approaches.
