A briefing by Major General Igor Konashenkov with data on the start of the work of the Coordination Center at the Khmeimim airbase


Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation voiced the main tasks of the Coordination Center:

receiving, via a single telephone number and e-mail address, appeals from representatives of local authorities and armed groups about the desire to cease hostilities and begin negotiations on reconciliation;
providing maximum assistance to all who contact the Center for the organization of contacts and further cooperation with the Syrian authorities to sign agreements on the cessation of hostilities and reconciliation;
interaction with international organizations on the delivery of humanitarian aid to Syria’s population and the return of refugees from other regions, as well as countries.


It is noted that the work of the center is covered by various media, including the Syrian. Also used to inform the use of SMS-mailing and other tools.

According to Igor Konashenkov, the first information about the groups who want to add up weapon, come from the provinces of Lattakia, Hama, Homs, Daraa and Damascus.

From the briefing of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation:
One of the results of this work is the signing of a petition for reconciliation, as it, in particular, happened in the village of Javalik and in a number of other settlements of the province of Homs. There are practical results in the north of the province of Latakia. In the mountainous part of this province, hostilities ceased hostilities in the settlements of Gnaymiya, Laulyat and Burj Islam, and documents were signed on the truce. Negotiations are underway in a number of settlements in the province of Latakia.


The representative of the Defense Ministry noted that the Russian-American agreement does not suit Turkey, which continues to strike at the positions of the Kurdish militia in the north of the SAR. Shelling of Syrian settlements from the Turkish heavy artillery is noted.

MO RF:
Instead of accusing VKS of the Russian Federation of indiscriminate strikes, we urge Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Doctors Without Borders and other organizations to give their official assessment of these criminal actions of the Turkish armed forces.


Igor Konashenkov noted that Russia had transferred the data to the US military embassy in the US embassy within the framework of the agreements reached on Syria, however, a day later the American side did not send the response data to the Russian military.

Commentary of the official representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation:
It is not known whether this is related to the strange statement of Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook, who has a very superficial, or rather, a distorted view of the Russian-American agreements reached on the Syrian theme.
Mr. Cook for some reason said the other day that the cease-fire in Syria is a test for the Russian authorities. Mr Cook would have to temper his ardor and focus on the activities associated with the organization he represents. That is - the Pentagon. To do this to him, unlike his predecessors without knowledge of military affairs, is not easy. So he seeks to compensate for their failures loud blunders. You have to be modest. Yes, and more professional.

There are reports in the media about the alleged development by our American partners of some plans under the conditional names “B” and other letters of the alphabet. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is determined, and moreover, they have begun concrete and difficult practical work on reconciliation in the Syrian Arab Republic. We hope that our American partners, instead of letters and words, will move to concrete deeds as soon as possible.

Major General Konashenkov noted that recently, the activity of Russian aircraft in the Syrian sky has somewhat decreased. Russian aviation It does not strike in those territories where information comes to the Coordination Center about the readiness of individual groups to lay down their arms. The attacks on the militants Jabhat-en-Nusra and ISIS, meanwhile, continue.

MO RF:
Over the past two days, 62 has been made combat sorties on 187 targets in the provinces of Hama, Raqca Deir ez-Zor, Aleppo and Homs.


In the province of Hama, Russian aircraft destroyed the 10 strongholds of terrorists and at least fifty fifty militants themselves. Several terrorist SUVs were eliminated and a 1 tank was shot down. In the area of ​​Palmyra, a Su-34 bomber destroyed X-Numx IG mortar batteries along with calculations and 2 armored vehicles. In the province of Aleppo, a group of 2 militants was destroyed from the air, as well as an 10 SUV equipped with machine guns. In the province of Rakka, Russian aircraft destroyed a convoy of terrorists' vehicles carrying weapons and ammunition to the province of Deir ez-Zor.

        Now you need to squeeze the situation. Terrorists are destroyed and they now want peace. What for? I’m sitting here on the couch, and the civilian population has experienced all the charms of ISIS. Do they really agree to a peaceful option.
        It is clear that "the giraffe is big - he knows best," but one could tell the reason why the Russian Federation and the SAR are going to do this. After all, then these same terrorists will be among the civilian population and it will be much more difficult to deal with them.

          there is the experience of Chechnya and Bandera. In the normal course of the situation, these bandits will quietly be attracted to peaceful life. Yes, there is a risk of a repeat of Ukraine. But this is on the conscience of Washington and London and their sixes. But most militants will actually return to a peaceful life, at least in a generation, with the right policies of the authorities. Unfortunately, a military solution is almost never possible if the opponents have the same strength. The slaughter will continue forever. What is hinting at Ukraine. Until the west stops funding the junta, the war will continue. In Syria, everything is mirror but a little different. If the junta behaved like Assad with the Russian Federation, then it would really be possible to bring the conflict into a peaceful stage.

          You are confused by the name Armistice Agreement. In fact, this is Putin's ultimatum: "The opposition shall cease fire and lay down their arms, whoever does not lay down - I will bomb. ISIS bombed as it did and I will bomb until the last militant. I instruct Obama to keep Turkey so that he does not meddle." So that's it. And Obama signed up for it.

          Read carefully. You don't have to row everything in one pile. There is no talk of a truce with ISIS and Nusra. They will be finished off. It would be nice to equate the Ottomans with them.

    One of the results of this work is the signing of application forms for reconciliation, as, in particular, it happened in the village of Javalik and in a number of other settlements in the province of Homs.
    As if these agreements were not a smokescreen covering the regrouping and replenishment of the BC. Now, when the IGs are not having a sweet time, they will do anything to get a respite.

      I agree with everything. But of the NATO representatives have already stated that Russia and the SAR must observe the truce (terrorists and others are not mentioned in this vein), and they will "follow" this. And there is no exhaustive list of terrorists and "moderate opposition". And what about those who are fighting in a mixed composition of the list of terrorists and "moderate opposition"? As a version, it is an attempt to separate such mixed groupings. Provocations are inevitable. So the war will continue, including the information war, in the form of unfounded accusations. God grant that as few people as possible suffer in this "meat grinder".

    In connection with the above, the question is: how will the United States behave, and how will they consider the actions of Turkey, which will not slow down to provoke provocations, because they do not fall under the agreement (the word - the state is missing in the text)? The fact that the Turks are assigned not the last role here, I have no doubt. The rest is a repetition of the scenario worked out in Ukraine.

      Turkey is being dumped ... Putin has seen something like that said to Obama that he went for it, but you shouldn't relax! If the Turks "rock the boat" Russia will be peacekeepers ... Ukraine is alarming that the Svidomo will again start pouring from the hail on peaceful ", simultaneously with the Turks ... (these can, by order ..)

        I hope those who still doubt should finally decide together with Assad and the people of Syria or against. And all those who must be destroyed against it, otherwise there will be no victory, and the protraction of the conflict is clearly not in the interests of our country, a new Minsk cannot be allowed.
        Syrian troops advancing on ISIS stronghold in Aleppo, one of the leaders of "Nur Ad-Din Zanki" killed
        The SAA is advancing towards Al-Bab (El-Bab) - the main stronghold of ISIS in eastern Aleppo. According to the military commanders, as a result of the battle, a gang of 10 terrorists and three "carts" (jeeps with machine guns) on which they moved were destroyed today.
        Syrian front-line correspondents report that the other day, Ahmad Rastam, one of the leaders of the Nur Ad-Din Az-Zanki brigades, as well as a number of militants as a result of an air strike at the headquarters of the group in Ain Jara (عينجارة) in the west of Aleppo, were killed.
        In addition, in the last days in the province of Aleppo, during the successful operation of the Syrian army, a number of settlements were liberated and one of the leaders of the Nur Ad-Din Az-Zanki group was killed.
        For the third day, the Syrian Arab Army has been conducting an anti-terrorist operation 95 km from Al-Bab to regain control of the "road of life" of Aleppo-Hanasser, blocked by ISIS on Monday evening. This morning, special forces, militias and SAA fighters stepped up the onslaught of ISIS, storming the positions of militants in settlements along the strategic freeway that they had captured in the past 72 hours in northern Syria. Currently, the road is still blocked.
        Yesterday, bandits captured the strategically important town of Hanaser, around which fierce battles take place the second day. Today, the Tigers special forces entered the Hanasser near the "road of life" Aleppo-Hama with battles.
