At the Russian air base "Khmeimim" (Syria), a coordination center was opened to reconcile the warring parties

On the eve of the official representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Major General Igor Konashenkov told the media that the coordination center for reconciliation of the opposing sides was deployed at the Hmeimim airbase in Syria. According to General Konashenkov, the start of the work of such a center is connected with the existing agreements with Washington on a cease-fire in Syria. Recall that in February 22, the Russian and American authorities agreed on the non-use of force against those groups in the SAR that are not recognized by the UN Security Council as terrorist. The conduct of hostilities will continue after February 27 against ISIS, Dzhebhat al-Nusra and some other terrorist gangs recognized in the UN Security Council.

At the Russian air base "Khmeimim" (Syria), a coordination center was opened to reconcile the warring parties

Igor Konashenkov (quote RIA News):
In accordance with the Russian-American 22 agreements of February on the cessation of hostilities in Syria, the Coordination Center for reconciliation of the warring parties in the Syrian Arab Republic was established and began work on implementing the ceasefire monitoring mechanism at the Russian Khmeimim airbase.

The representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation notes that the participants of the opposition official Damascus groups, aimed at ending the hostilities and disarmament in order to begin the political process of resolving the conflict, can contact the focal point via a single phone and other communication channels.

      And the list of terrorists agreed upon at the UN is still missing.

      There is not only a list here, but the ceasefire has not yet begun, and the military officials of the United States of America doubt that Russia will fulfill the accepted ceasefire conditions in Syria, and plan to create a plan to increase pressure on the Russian government, writes The Wall Street Journal with reference to a senior presidential administration official.

      According to the source, John Brennan and Ashton Carter, head of the CIA and Pentagon departments, Joseph Dunford, head of the headquarters committee at the talks, expressed harsh comments and called for new measures to create troubles for Russia.

      The publication notes that due to the growing negative attitude towards Moscow, the US president’s administration may influence Barack Obama in order to take more significant restrictive measures against Russia.

      Close to Secretary of State John Kerry, in turn, told the newspaper that the ceasefire agreement in Syria will also make it possible to understand whether the Russian government can be trusted. He believes that if Moscow will ignore the terms of the agreement, it may "require a plan B." These are the American jackals, oh sorry I wanted to write "partners".

      Guys, to put it mildly, Putin once again shook everything. The mattresses wanted to portray some sort of mine in a bad game, and here is the result. Yes, in principle, given the Syrian and around-Syrian situation, such a conclusion could be made immediately, upon familiarization (which I did as soon as ... and I would like one guy put a plus sign to support the poor blonde ... Well, now all the heroes , damn it, analysts, and then immediately problems with gunpowder arose). I quote

      Americans, of course, can say anything, even jointly agreed with Russia. But, apparently, this time they were doing a lot of fun trying to pose as controllers of the situation. How are they going to accept the consent is not a truce, if Assad made it clear that anyone who pokes the invitations bases is an aggressor. There, it seems, in some places a secret American spenase hangs around and ours even promised not to bomb. But the Syrians did not give any promises. And only the UN Security Council can force them not to be touched, and this is a long and very dreary mstorya. Yes, and illegal saboteurs in the role of intermediaries - it looks too dumb too. In general, it will be interesting to see.

      In, today they have already put one plus sign.

      But how can one understand the incompetent? If the UN itself does not know anything, it does not know who to listen to.

    The maps of the location of the terrorists are interesting. What are American views, where are good, where are bad. In fact, they will officially have to admit where it is possible to bomb. In other territories, "clashes between opposition groups will take place." If terrorists can change their names according to the situation, then the Syrian army needs to use this method.

    They can use the phone ... Nope, it's better to ring each commander of these opposition groups in this center with a bracelet with a glonass tracker.

    IMHO, we have successfully insured ourselves. If Erdi nevertheless decides to work on Khmeimim, our zhurnalyugi raise a howl about the destruction of the center of reconciliation and consent, after which it is possible to completely arrange the lunar landscape in Turkey. And Erdi, of course, frostbite, but still not id .. from

    The main thing here is not to give up the initiative so that it doesn’t work out like in 1945 in Berlin: the Soviet Army liberated, and it was not clear who divided the city into zones.

    Good move! Once the coalition cannot figure out the degree of moderation of the opposition, then let the opposition do it and Russia control it. Anyone who does not have time will get it. Moreover, it is legitimate !!!

    Something very reminiscent of the situation in the Donbass. When the guys successfully smashed the powderies, a proposal for a ceasefire immediately followed from the puppeteers. And now, when the offensive, fatal for ISIS, is successfully developing in Syria, again the puppeteers offer for a truce so that the ISIS can rest, heal, rearm ... Why give the enemy a respite?

    In this situation with a truce, I am worried about one such interesting fact. Like "Plan B" from the American side. And how it is presented in the international arena. Namely, if Russia does not support the truce, then we will force it. She must....
    I may not understand something ...
    What is the tone of the statement from Kerry? Why is our Foreign Ministry swallowing such formulations again?
    Russia is a permanent member of the UN Security Council. A nuclear power with a history that spans centuries.
    Will we respect ourselves at all?
    Or we will continue to close our eyes.
    As soon as we take such an attitude towards ourselves and make those statements that are said, then shaking hands, what kind of respect can be talked about in the international arena.
    Our leadership and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as a provider, are monstrously relaxed. Unforgivable! and I don’t see for what lofty ideas, it’s possible to continue not to respect yourself and us.
