Telegraph: Russia demonstrates its power to the West during an operation in Syria


"The Russian operation in Syria was a demonstration of the military skill of the Russian Federation, acquired through the modernization of the armed forces," RIA News excerpt from the publication.

“Thus, ground targets in Syria destroy the newest Russian fighter-bombers Su-34. The most formidable strategic bomber Tu-160, originally intended to penetrate well-protected airspace and deliver nuclear weapons“Also hits targets in Syria,” the author notes.

In addition, in Syria, “advanced Tanks T-90 equipped with a complex of active protection against guided missiles, ”he writes with reference to information from open sources.

In addition, last week, "Russia first used the Caliber cruise missiles from the Rostov-on-Don submarine in the Mediterranean Sea," the article notes.

“Thus, Russia seeks to attract the attention of the United States and NATO and to prove that its armed forces are not inferior to the Western ones,” writes the Telegraph. “Cruise missiles, taking off from the depths of the Mediterranean, have become perhaps the most important element of this demonstration.”

“By demonstrating military capabilities, Russia seeks to get more strategic leverage - thinks Ben Barry, an expert at the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS). - If they (Russia) want to hold back, from their point of view, the irresponsible NATO adventurism, it is not without a help to demonstrate the possibilities of launching cruise missiles from both surface ships and submarines. ”

The only countries capable of striking cruise missiles from submarines on land targets were previously considered the United States and Britain. It was assumed that soon they will compete with France and China. But it turned out differently. “The missile volley broke through the serene surface of the Mediterranean Sea and soared into the cloudless sky, demonstrating that Russia has become the third member of this elite club,” concludes the publication.

      With all the recent "demonization" of Russia, it is in this article that the "Telegraph" is, as they say, - Look at the root. The Russian Federation does not want war (in which they are trying to drag it into) "The Civilized West" and therefore shows on the "Frostbitten fosterlings of democracy" what it can do with the lovely Europe that is not involved in anything and the "Stronghold of light and good" of the United States ... But judging on the continuing provocations to smart Europe and the "states of genius" the message sent by Russia hardly reaches ...

        The message sent by Russia does not agree with their "exclusivity", and therefore a stupor. How can you explain to your people that some kind of "Caliber" carries this "exclusivity" to the back place. In Ukrainian, just to the DUPU.

      YES, it looks like it is very necessary (a demonstration of force) that there would be no war, otherwise the mood of our "partners" is such that they can run into, and then the 3rd MV is at hand. Look at the most powerful army in Europe (APU which) has been fighting off our diving armored divisions lightly for more than one year (on Facebook, the truth is mostly), and the rest believed in what they themselves came up with - starting from the Balts and ending with the Yusa and small-shaven and even the Finns for everyone the case of the peace treaty is denounced in the hope of a piece of the pie. It is for this that you have to feed the barmaley with calibers and x-101 and other expensive gingerbread, so that it would be clear that everyone who wants to get a piece, but not a pie, but stars.

And now even ordinary people know that they can grab grief! How do you think the public can raise a buzz after learning about it ??! Let the butch rise! May they have all kinds of protests!

It falls to us. I'm afraid the demonstration of the military power of our country is like a demonstration of the strength of a rat cornered. We can bite hard. Very. But this is brute force. and what can we do economically? This is an interesting question. Patriotism is certainly good. But what can we really do? Do many countries want to beat us? Where the revolution, we want to become part of Russia?

    The only countries capable of delivering cruise missile attacks from submarines at ground targets were formerly the United States and Britain.
    And the fact that these missiles (caliber) can be launched from any fishing boat, is it not interesting to the world community?

    At least now the sneaky West will be wary of Russia and will know that it will be able to receive not only nuclear strikes, but also precision-guided missiles at very important operational targets in the geyrop and the USA. The only thing that we have is not so developed is the fleet. Few modern submarines and various types of surface ships, but this will be fixed by the 20th year. God grant that Russia revived. We don’t need foreign lands, we don’t want to dictate and intimidate anyone like the USA, we don’t need world leadership, we need clean earth and air so that planet Earth itself does not die from the irresponsible actions of vile and greedy people
