          Viktor Litovkin
          TASS military observer, retired colonel:
          “The fact is that numbers are not published anywhere. Of course, there are some financiers who consider this, but this is not published anywhere, so I think that all these figures are rather arbitrary. Of course, war costs money, but all these figures are included in the cost of combat training of the armed forces. Our operation in Syria is the cost of combat training of our armed forces. But, sorry for the cynical statement, if we hadn’t flown, hadn’t bombed in Syria, we would have flown and bombed at our training grounds, these would have been the same means. The only thing the distance would be different. From 2 to 4 million dollars a day are approximate figures, even if they correspond to reality, this is not a serious damage to our security. ”
          Actually, my opinion is that it is better to spend money on a war outside the state than then consider the number of heads cut off within the borders of the state.

      Cant from the publisher;) But as for me, 11-12 million $ is tolerable for them. The benefits of the current situation outweigh and by a wide margin.

        If the United States in Syria does not burn out with the overthrow of the Assad regime (and judging by the serious intentions of Russia it will), then consider the Pentagon tossed this money into the stove. Can you imagine the degree of hatred towards our country from Washington? And how was their lack of kondraty yet?

          All this may turn out to be fake, simply by the number of gas stations in the air they had to bomb Iraq from air bases in Australia, or at least from Diego Garcia. In fact, the US Air Force also has posts and theft.

    $ 11,2 billion Spend US a week on anti-terror campaign in Iraq and Syria

    Have you bent with a number? And so it turns out about 1,6 million a day, and they said they spend 8 million a day, and we (our videoconferencing) attributed this figure.

    Our Americans counted 2 billion a year. Our operation costs $. The question is how to consider, maybe they amortize the cost of all aircraft and UAVs during the operation?
