The chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Valery Gerasimov, stated that the strategic initiative in most sectors of the front in Syria had passed to the army of the Syrian Arab Republic. On the TV channel Russia-24 A high-ranking Russian military official said that the systematic massive desertion of militants from terrorist units indicates a shift in the strategic initiative to the SAR army.


Valery Gerasimov spoke about the transition of the strategic initiative in Syria to the government army ATS


Valery Gerasimov:
The strategic initiative in most areas is now in the hands of government forces. They are engaged in active hostilities, sooner or later the resistance of ISIS will be broken.


According to Valery Gerasimov, former Iraqi soldiers take part in training IS militants in Syria. Valery Gerasimov noted that the Iraqi military were well prepared at one time, and their instructor activities on the side of the IG is a serious problem, but this problem is solvable.

The Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces notes that for about four years the Syrian army retreated and suffered defeat from numerous terrorist groups, and recently the support of the Russian Aerospace Forces helped the UAR forces to feel the taste of victories. The soldiers of the Syrian army believed in themselves, and now defeat the militants in various provinces of the country.

Valery Gerasimov:
For four years, the Syrian army, defending itself against illegal armed formations, led mainly hostile actions. Literally two weeks after the start of the air operation of our airborne forces in Syria, separate trends emerged for the transition to an offensive in certain directions. It was at the end of October. Now (...) from the 15 areas, which are undergoing military operations in Syria, offensive actions are now being conducted on 10, three are being prepared for an offensive, and only in two directions are units defended.


According to Valery Gerasimov, during the counter-terrorist operation in Syria, the crews of the Russian Aerospace Forces airplanes carried out more than 6 thousands of sorties to attack various militant targets. At the same time, the head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation added that the combat experience of the armed forces of the Russian Federation in Syria will be further taken into account during inspections and maneuvers in the Russian Federation.

        No need to jerk. Syria is the homeland for the Syrians, and Russia acts as an ally. And for what the USA is at war, they have already explained so many times at all levels that you involuntarily remember: “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek and find; knock, and they will open it to you;
        for everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened ”(Matt. 7, 7-8).

    "... the crews of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out more than 6 thousand sorties to strike at various targets of the militants."
    If we conditionally take the number of sorties comparable to the number of "affected" objects and the number of guards (even one for each), then the figure turns out to be impressive. The salary in Daesh has already halved. So the "workers" are scattering.

    Let's remember the lessons of the Second World War. When the USSR ground the Nazis thoroughly here and the allies joined in and the victory cake was divided oh, if not equally. Conclusion - Putin and Assad are close to victory, since the "partners" are hastily embarking on military operations. Afraid to be late is visible.

    They are gaining new bearded men quickly. This is a consumable item. In addition, their commanders should not be considered stupid. They adapt to new realities. They move more secretively, disguise themselves in cities, the local population is used as a shield. Yes, they are still slowly retreating, but there is still far from victory.

    East is a delicate matter. If the barmaley morally "break down", then the process of their "scattering" will go very quickly. And everywhere at once. Therefore, we do not see obvious "nishtyaks" in Syria - they squeezed out a little, here they moved a little ... But the process is going on, as the doctors say - the dynamics are positive ...

    Here is the news: Turkey in Syria shot down US marines, 12 American soldiers died. However, the States, in order to prevent a scandal within NATO, were forced to hide this fact by launching in the media the version that two CH-53 Sea Stallion helicopters collided with each other in the air near Hawaii. Such sensational information was published on January 20 by the American site Sorcha Faal.

    Everyone is in a hurry to take their piece of Syria and it looks like ISIS is doing very badly, since the Americans decided so quickly on the ground operation that Obama categorically did not want. The occupied territories will be exchanged with Russia or used as Turks for reformation, re-equipment, recreation and base for sorties

    (The strategic initiative in most areas is now in the hands of government troops. They are engaged in active hostilities, sooner or later the resistance of ISIS will be broken.)

    This served as the basis for Ashton Carter to declare the start of the US ground operation in Syria (without permission and invitation from the Syrian government). The Americans in their repertoire: the division of the pie has come nearer - it is time to take root, then to dictate. yes

    Today, the US Secretary of Defense said of a ground operation in Syria and Iraq. This fully confirms the fact that we have tangible successes, because as you know the Americans love to use other people's laurels of victory, and they won’t move in vain and finger (joining the second front). So the successes are not bad, if they want to jump onto the bandwagon of the outgoing train. Yes, and if he said that they wanted to recapture Racca from ISIS in a ground operation, then the analogy of Berlin (who is the master of victory) suggests itself.

    So, there will be an attempt to continue to dictate their conditions, since they will stand there. Further they will make plans based on the positions of others, for example, the Kurds will try to play (maybe) at first they will arm them, and there you can shoot a few provocations. And the bearded will most likely be sent to the eurozone ...

    I think that the protracted war in Syria is good for the West, and especially the United States. They will now begin to counteract more and more Syria and Russia in Syria itself. And the American generation - ISIS will support in any case, as Turkey does, which the bastards and Fashington do not even stop.

    I will supplement the comments of readers in my opinion.
    The more pilots of our VKS get combat experience in Syria, the more think potential aggressors who dream of treading the vastness of our Russia. The Ministry of Defense, I hope, is gaining experience in supplying troops with arms, spare parts, and foodstuffs, in organizing field repairs, and treating Syrian army soldiers. I hope that both the Moscow Region and the President of the Russian Federation are creating plans to deploy industry to increase military production, taking into account the accumulated combat experience.
    And the army of the SAR, of course, wish you victories and the speedy liberation of the territory of Syria from numerous groups of bandits.

    In my opinion, the Russian Aerospace Forces and advisers in the army have so far only saved the Assad government from defeat. Help went both with food and uniforms (they dressed up the Syrian army in the video), they began to supply weapons, ammunition and, like, food. The situation is far from a final victory. More similar to the situation of 41 years when the Germans were driven away from Moscow (terrorists from the outskirts of Damascus). This is only a promise of a future victory. And much needs to be done to achieve it.

    And to our regret, mattresses can now do anything ... especially since Obama urgently needs a victorious war, especially now, when the needles on the edge and losses will be minimal, if at all (most Igilovites are a mattress tribe, their own ... will say: That's it ... we defeated you, leave for a while ...)

    Therefore, our military and Assad now have one way out - to have time to clear out the territory of Syria to the maximum, ideally completely, so that the mattresses would not make sense to get into the land ...

    Regarding the Amer invasion of Syria, there is also a diplomatic move. This is the official appeal of the Syrian leadership to the UN Security Council on the illegal invasion of amers on the territory of Syria. If it is clear that Russia will support China, it will maintain firm neutrality and the Westerners will block. Nevertheless, this move will show the illegitimacy of the presence of these foreign troops on the territory of Syria and without a UN Security Council decision to create a coalition on Syria (which our people will not allow) will be a good reason to declare armed expansion (or war) Syrian aviation may miss and bomb off aggressors somewhere (and legally legitimate) and at the same time no resolution against Syria will pass through the Security Council. Plus 5 article of the UN Charter
