Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, Major General Igor Konashenkov, spoke about the next stage of the counter-terrorist operation in Syria. According to General Konashenkov, the aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces made 82 sorties within 24 hours, striking the militants' 204 objects. Attacks were made on terrorist sites in the provinces of Idlib, Hama, Homs, Aleppo and Lattakia.


According to the official representative, 32 combat sorties were made at night.
Press Service of the Ministry of Defense:

Massive missile launchedaviation strike on the most important targets of terrorist groups using precision weapons. In the course of the strike, naval-launched Caliber missiles and KAB-500 adjustable bombs were used. These high-precision weapons destroyed the most important objects of terrorists.

General Konashenkov told about the launches of cruise missiles from the board of the submarine Rostov-on-Don, which was submerged at the time of the launch.

From the message of Igor Konashenkov:
All targets are hit with extreme precision.
I recall that the range of use of cruise missiles "Caliber" is about 2 thousands of kilometers.
The rocket has a low radar visibility and due to rounding the terrain at ultra-low altitudes is almost imperceptible to any means of air defense.
The accuracy of hitting the target, despite the range of application, is a few meters. Given that the mass of the warhead is 500 kilogram, the goal is guaranteed to be destroyed.
The missile can be equipped with both conventional and special warhead - nuclear.
I want to remind that in November, in addition to the “Calibrov”, the latest X-101 airborne cruise missiles from strategic aviation aircraft were also used. This precision weapon is guaranteed to destroy targets at a distance of about 4,5 thousands of kilometers.


Previously, experts wrote that air-launched X-101 cruise missiles have a range of damage of no more than 2,5 thousand km. As it turns out, the real range is almost twice as high.

The X-101 rocket is practically invisible to any air defense weapons and can be equipped with both conventional and special nuclear warheads. The accuracy of hitting targets in this cruise missile does not exceed a few meters.


According to Igor Konashenkov, the higher the intensity of the strikes against the terrorists in Syria, the more actively the criticism goes to Russia:
For the world community it is already obvious, as they say, who is who in the fight against international terrorism. The more powerful and accurate we beat the militants, the more our colleagues are filled with criticism, trying to divert public attention in various ways.


General Konashenkov has denied that Russia has created "additional air bases" in Syria. Earlier it was reported that such air bases allegedly created two in addition to "Hamim".

We present a detailed commentary by Igor Konashenkov:
Last week, there was information about the alleged deployment in the area of ​​n. Shairat new Russian air base.
You do not need to be a deep military expert to understand that from the Hmeymim airbase, where the Russian air group is based, the entire 30-40 flight minutes to any Russian aircraft is required to any extreme point in Syria.

There was no operational need for the deployment of new Russian “air bases” in Syria, as it was decided by “sofa strategists”.
I will also comment on the reports, citing anonymous sources at the Pentagon, about the possible involvement of our aircraft in delivering an aerial strike on December 6 against Syrian government forces in the Deir ez-Zor area.

First the facts. According to the Syrian Army General Staff, 6 December with 19: 40 for 15 minutes, Western coalition aircraft struck the 168 field camp of the 7 brigade of the Syrian government forces division in 2 km west of Deir e Zor. 4 killed and 12 people injured.
Recall all the flights of the Russian space forces in the sky of Syria are coordinated with the air traffic control and the general headquarters of the Syrian government troops.

Russian aircraft over the area was not.

This is known to our colleagues from the Pentagon: in accordance with the signed memorandum, they are promptly notified of the time and flight routes of our air group in Syria.

Pentagon officials confirmed that on December 6, the US Air Force aircraft operated in the area at a distance of 55 kilometers from the impact site.
And it is true. But not all. In the sky above n. Deir-ez-Zor had two pairs of combat aircraft from two more countries of the anti-Igil coalition.
If the Americans are not involved in this strike, then why representatives of the Pentagon are silent about the presence of their allies' planes in the area where they attacked the units of the Syrian government forces?

Is it because that all information about the goals of ISIS in Syria, coalition aircraft gets it from the Pentagon? Moreover, the erroneous strikes of the coalition from the air are taking more and more lives of Syrians.

Literally the other day, as a result of a coalition attack on the village of Al-Khan, as reported by human rights activists from the Syrian Council for the Supervision of Human Rights, dozens of civilians were killed again.

So maybe it's time for our colleagues from the so-called "coalition" to reveal the cards?

Indeed, from the very beginning of the operation, it was repeatedly suggested to the Americans to organize an exchange of available information on the location of terrorist facilities in Syria. But it turns out, as we say in Russia, “there is a lot of ringing - yes, there’s little use”.

        Yeah. For many, war has already become a kind of routine, a kind of entertainment, such as gladiatorial fights in ancient Rome. From the very beginning, the Ministry of Defense began to intensively upload videos, first of all for the purpose of preventive self-defense in an information war, secondly, to show the capabilities and power of the Armed Forces to potential "partners", and thirdly, in addition, as a bonus, to prove to all the Russians and all to other patriots suffering from a split personality, that they are well, completely "wrong"))) ... probably decided not to bend their fragile brain in the opposite direction anymore, or else to choke on slogans with delight ...

      There is already no criticism towards Russia. A friendlier rhetoric has gone.

      But in any case, we must remember about the motor ship "Louisiana". If anyone does not know, then there is always an opportunity, google it.

    It is time to stop joyfully salivating .... In the light of this information, several points are not clear to me. Why is there no control over Syria's airspace by our group? I'm talking about the information component. Secondly, why there is no constant control over the hole on the Turkish-Syrian border. Where are drones, stationary means, airships, etc.?
    Third, additional non-aircraft artillery bases are needed, from which a hole and roads are shot and controlled in the direction of intuition ... If this is not necessary, why new gold targets in the form of TU-160?

      I will try to answer you.

      There are mutual agreements. Based on these agreements, this or that degree of security is established. Demonstration of tension exceeding the necessary degree of security, escalation of the conflict. May lead to mutual distrust.

      The problem is that the parties have not declared war. As soon as this happens, then everything will be clear. In the meantime, everyone demonstrates the degree of trust as agreed.

    With regards to the new airdromes - if the MO did not say it, then it wouldn’t. But apparently, then Syria will soon have two repaired air bases, and even aviation equipment for them.

      It is certainly clear that the crisis of capitalism in 2007, which leads to the beginnings of world wars, has not been overcome. The harbingers of the great war, the environment of small wars.

      Syria is of strategic importance for Russia. Bases in Syria allow you to control the region, the supply of oil products to the probable enemy in the global conflict. You yourself know what oil is for war. Look at the geographic map. And questions will disappear.

      Therefore, just in case, developments are made.

    It's too early to shout. This is just the beginning. The further, the "more interesting". Everything is twisting in a serious way, and the "partners" are not going to retreat from their scripts. It is not clear with these 98 kilometers - it is impossible to drain the water without turning off the tap. It is not clear with this Syrian-Iraqi Kurdistan - where and when cowboys with Frank-Masons will begin to fence in it. The Paris terrorist attacks, the aircraft carrier De Gaulle, the Turkish battalions in Iraq are links of the same chain. Coalition aviation is an air cover for the future of Kurdistan. They will derban the east of Syria, resettle Turkish Kurds there, Kurdistan will isolate Iran from Syria. If Turkey goes ahead, then it will be put under us. The fun will be coming soon.
