“I will not hide the fact that units of our Special Operations Forces are operating in Syria. They carry out additional exploration of targets for Russian strikes. aviation, engage in targeting aircraft in remote areas, solve other special tasks, ”
said the janitors.

According to him, "similar units of the US armed forces and other coalition states operate in Syria."

“In the shortest possible time, a system of military advisers was created in the Armed Forces of Syria with its administrative apparatus. They successfully solved the task of preparing government troops, Kurdish and other patriotic formations. The situation was positively influenced by the fact that our advisers took an active part in the preparation of military operations ”,
told the general.

He noted that the joint work allowed to destroy the infrastructure of terrorists, cut off supply channels and move to offensive actions.

“And they were conducted simultaneously on 15 directions. This forced the militants to abandon large offensive operations and move to action in small groups, ”Dvornikov added.

“The basis of the success of the military operation against terrorists was the coordinated work of Russian aviation in the air with the units of government and patriotic forces on the ground. To increase their combat capabilities in the framework of military-technical assistance, we supplied the Syrian army with modern weapons and military equipment. These are artillery systems, communications, intelligence, etc., ”he said.

      how is the morale of the igilovites?
      ..............
      MOSCOW, Mar 23 - RIA News. The Islamic State terrorist group (ISIS, banned in the Russian Federation) prepared and sent at least 400 militants to Europe to carry out attacks, the Associated Press reported, citing unnamed intelligence officials from European countries and Iraq.


      Militants for attacks in Western countries are trained in special camps in Iraq, Syria and, possibly, the countries of the post-Soviet bloc, the agency said. According to them, the militants were ordered to choose the right time, place and method to fulfill their mission.

      The militants are united in small groups, similar to those that carried out the attacks in Paris last November and in Brussels on Tuesday, sources said.
      ...............
      Quietly peacefully preparing to poison the bar.
      ... Russians should not relax soldier , you need to carefully look around, otherwise they usually do not go to the bar quietly or peacefully, with fellow travelers, without even asking their wishes

          Honestly, I have had assumptions before that our specialists work in Syria, whether it be the MTR or the GRU special forces. But after such a statement, all doubts completely disappeared!

            Yes, what doubts .. Thanks to the VKS RF alone, the ground forces of Syria would not be transformed so quickly. The militia, the tribes, etc. are fighting on their side. Only Russian specialists could coordinate their actions and teach competently to interact with each other and with Aviation. And the results of individual operations made it clear that there were not only Syrian special forces there. So be it.

          According to him, "similar units of the US armed forces and other coalition states operate in Syria."

          The "national moderate Syrian opposition" gets some strange appearance under the leadership and support of the special forces of foreign states.
          In general, it must be understood that the United States and other coalition states are fighting against Syria without declaring war, using special forces and mercenaries (where are the oppositionists supplied from?). So, maybe they, as accomplices of terrorists, "kill" on the sly, as was done in the era of the USSR. If they themselves are scrapped, or "faith does not allow," so to train the Syrians on this matter, they are in their own right - no one will be able to blather in response.
          Although it may be that they are “wetting” it, it’s hard to believe that the Soviet spetsnaz school was too radically deformed. In one thing, you can be sure that on the forums no one will bring this to the attention of the couch warriors.

          Even after the first strikes of our aviation on their number and accuracy, the presence of our MSS became an open secret. According to my personal estimates and crumbs of information, all of last summer they set targets for our aviation and carried out reconnaissance. And then aviation was still hanging out in the Russian Federation, and for it goals were already being marked. wink Intelligence, special operations, aircraft targeting, sabotage and work on specific personalities - all for what they were created. soldier Good luck to the guys!

        It's right. Receiving snot in one place, ISIS quietly prepare terrorist attacks in another. Jacob Kedmi is 100500 times right when he says that by letting refugees into Europe almost uncontrollably, the EU set up problems for itself in Paris and Brussels. They beat, as a rule, in the weakest places, so ears must be kept open !!!
        And that the special forces in Syria are gaining combat experience is only a plus. No training ground will give such an effect. The main thing is that these people, who have passed another hot spot, should be in demand with their experience and knowledge, and not left to their own devices, as happened after Afghanistan.

      Well, here it is again))) why is there the fighting spirit of the ISIS? Who was behind the creation of the Isis? who released Baghdadi from Guantanom? and why did he become a leader so quickly?
      Coordination of sponsors, a choir cry not to touch the moderate opposition and supply it with weapons, prepare them on the territory of neighboring states and then send them to Syria ..... but then only a naive one can think that terrorists appeared there from scratch and began to conquer "states". ..... The choral lament of the Middle Eastern bunnies over the action of the Russian Federation in Syria, the cry of gay guns in Ukraine and Syria, as well as the frenzy of the United States and to annoy Russia, including in such ways, is not a formal ban on the purchase of our bonds ... this is nothing else as a result of the fact that our Special Operations Forces broke all the plans of the so-called "coalition" and they could not oppose anything to this without exposing themselves completely.

      According to him, "similar units of the US armed forces and other coalition states operate in Syria."

      These same TV.ar.i are also valid on the territory of the Ruins near us ....

      about a month ago, Kadyrov confirmed that special forces from Chechnya are in Syria

      Then he talked about the agents, which was introduced back in the 90s. In my opinion, not a single politician in the World has ever boasted of his undercover agents. In my opinion, Kadyrov is a smart and competent politician, so the likely purpose of his statement was that the ISIS would have less confidence in immigrants from Chechnya and the Caucasus so that none of them would return to Russia.

      If I understood him correctly then, he seemed to say that the fighters of the Chechen special forces were introduced into the ranks of the militants, they say Russia has its own agents among the terrorists. Now we are talking about the implementation of special operations by our fighters in Syria hi

        Where did the sixth come from?

        There is a rumor ...
        Six Russian soldiers were killed in Syria, not five, as the Kremlin reported.
        According to data, Interior Ministry veteran Sergei Chupov was buried at the Novoderevensky cemetery in the Balashikha district of the Moscow region. Chupov died on February 8.

        According to a former colleague of Chupov, a soldier died in Syria as a result of mortar shelling. According to him, Chupov was part of the Russian military group in Syria.

        However, according to relatives, Chupov died his death near the border with Ukraine, where he helped one of his friends with the move.

        The death of a serviceman was also confirmed by experts from the Conflict Intelligence Team.

        CIT is a group of independent investigators of armed conflicts in Ukraine and Syria, led by Ruslan Leviev. In November 2015, CIT spoke about the death in Syria of a serviceman Fedor Zhuravlev, whose death was confirmed in the Kremlin on March 17. CIT was also the first to talk about the death in Syria of Vadim Kostenko, whose death was later officially confirmed. Some Conflict Intelligence Team reports of losses in Syria have not yet been confirmed.

        The Kremlin has officially recognized the death of only five Russian troops killed during the operation in Syria.
