By publishing a video with the Syrian military chronicle, whose personnel recorded the precise work of the Russian military, the publication Business Insider noted that the operation in the UAR had demonstrated new capabilities of the RF Armed Forces, which "came as a surprise to the world."


Western experts once again admired Russian weapons


"The Syrian campaign has allowed Russia to test in the combat conditions new military aircraft, as well as cruise missiles, the flight range of which exceeds the performance of American counterparts," leads RIA News opinion of Kennan Institute expert in Washington Michael Coffman.

“It's amazingly effective weapon", - said the expert on the Russian" Calibra. "

"Russian tactics and strategy have also become more advanced," - said the publication.

“What continues to impress me is the ability (of Russia) to deploy (troops) very far and very quickly,” said US Commander for Europe Ben Hodges.

"These successes show that President Vladimir Putin has modernized the army, which, as many believed, has lagged behind Western designs for years," sums up Business Insider.

          We, Russians, in no way should we spit from the praises of foreigners! It is necessary to rearm as quickly and as efficiently as possible! The enemy is very cunning and strong! And his guns are directed towards Russia.

            You would be shocked to fully understand how our authorities have always been dependent on the opinions of the most insignificant foreigners. This nastiness lasts even from the tsars, smoothly passes into the slavish worship of the Soviet authorities under the USSR (it would seem ... but it was funny, wild and incredibly disgusting) and is completely in power now. A small article in a newspaper from the very anus of the Western world becomes a major event in the Kremlin. Alas.

        Russia is not only able to do this, but it is also capable of driving enemy troops "very far and very quickly"! (Georgians will not let them lie). Finish the game, you have to experience it in reality.

        Unfortunately, or more precisely, the defense potential of a state is not only the power of its armed forces, although for a start it’s the very first thing ... Now we have taken the first step, but the road is long to complete victory and it must be covered ... demand in the world, as well as for the currency of other developed countries and unions, the second step will be taken ... When it will be possible to grow rich in your country, and not for export, not a step will be taken, but a leap, then it will be possible to talk about democracy, freedom of speech, etc. ... And not on the contrary ...))) Comrades, if on the contrary - this is a divorce! Have already passed. Then we will join the "friendly family of European nations. In the meantime, dig trenches and ditches for the foundation of new factories and schools ... Enough hatred, it's time to move on to violence!)))

          When it will be possible to get rich in your own country, and not for export, not a step will be made, but a jump, then it will already be possible to talk about democracy, freedom of speech, etc. ...

In the meantime, dig trenches, and ditches under the foundation of new factories and schools ... Enough of hatred, it's time to move on to violence!


          Let me agree with you, but not in everything. Accents and priorities need to be set differently.
          - Firstly, it is possible to get rich even with us and even this hour, the main thing is that this is not to the detriment of the state and people.
          - secondly, again this is the infamous word democracy and the concept of freedom of speech. It is necessary to strive for a normal civilized society with the unity of all peoples and the correct concepts of freedom and freedom of speech where it does not mean that I want, then I create.
          - thirdly, why should We join some kind of "friendly" European family there? Again Should we? Noooooo comrade we have our own family according to our values ​​and customs, and we do not need to be secondary. This is our Russian civilization, and if anyone wants, then let them be added to us, but not in reverse and leave their values ​​in their priceless civilization.
          - and the fourth. We do not hate the rest - we confront them in a given period of time (era) and we will not deal with violence (evil gives rise to evil). We will be reasonable, humane, but strong and tough towards them.

          So be attentive to words and reasonably approach all problems with looking back into the past and looking into the future. Good luck.

        Generals in the USA voice absolutely opposite opinions ...
        Russian airstrikes in Syria make a minimal contribution to the common cause aimed at the destruction of the “Islamic state”, RIA Novosti reports a statement by the commander of US operations against the IS in Syria and Iraq, Sean McFarland.

        And how can this statement be reduced to the statement of another general?
        “What continues to impress me is the ability (of Russia) to deploy (troops) very far and very quickly,” said US Commander for Europe Ben Hodges.

          Well, in general, this is the main merit in the modernization of Shoigu, and the main merits in this area of ​​Putin are large-scale sudden checks of combat readiness and that he nevertheless "passed" Serdyukov. Although, the question immediately arises: why was it difficult for Kuzhugetich to drop at the Ministry of Defense immediately, without the "Serdyukov Stage"? He, of course, would have resisted, but where would he go.

    Under these "caressing ears" trills, it is necessary to strengthen the security of our base in Syria, because security is not only a sentry at take-off, but also ensuring security at more remote distances from the base, well, and everyone considers the distance differently. For example, if normal safety was ensured, there would be no one to shoot our pilots. We need to work on this, on safety.

    This is another matter! And then the military operation of Russia is ineffective. Envy and fear. By the way, Erdogan had long had to deliver an ultimatum: either he stops shelling the territory of Syria, or he will receive it according to the tonsils. By the way, you can broadcast on the air that our experts who helped the Syrian colleagues suffered from shelling of the Turks. And then raze their entire outpost with the ground. And the Americans should say that we will not tolerate such violations from any NATO member.

    “What continues to impress me is the ability (of Russia) to deploy (troops) very far and very quickly,” said US Commander for Europe Ben Hodges.

    "These successes show that President Vladimir Putin has modernized the army, which, as many believed, has lagged behind Western designs for years," sums up Business Insider.

    The Red Army is the strongest. wink

    “An unsuccessful war for us necessitates large expenditures for the revival of our army and navy. No matter how great our desire for peace is, no matter how enormous the country's need for peace is, but if we want to maintain our military power, while protecting the very dignity of our homeland, we do not agree to the loss of our rightful place among the great powers, then we don’t have to give up the need for costs, to which we are obliged by the great past of Russia. ”

    You can’t trust the praises of enemies, I very much agree. But honestly, an effective and quick troop transfer really undermined the stomachs of many, handsome men.
    I am very glad that the lessons of the previous companies, including the 'Night of the Three Eights', were not in vain, so the guys keep going.

    Well, once again the enemies praise us, it means they conceived something vile, the West has never had honesty.

    Everything is true, if they praise it, it means they will spoil it somewhere, if they criticize it, it was possible to prevent muck.

    I will quote the classic of Russian fiction Andrey Velichko, the book "Uncle Zhora"

    In fact, I have long noticed that if a war between some states is forced or provoked from outside, then long before the start of relations between future opponents worsen. But if it is being prepared by one of them, then when the events reach the finish line, it is overwhelmed by the simply irresistible peacefulness! In this regard, the question, for example, who conceived the Second World War in our world, was clear to me - it was the one who first began to curl around Hitler, almost kiss him passionately.


    NATO started talking about "what a fine fellow Russia is," while playing us off against Turkey, indulging Erdogan.
    Bad situation. Provocations will be even tougher. One must be prepared to answer no less harshly. And so that they were afraid to continue the escalation - a blow not only to the performers, but also to the customers ’wallet.
