Defense News: Moscow did not withdraw troops from Syria, it changed them

56
The strength of the Russian air group in Syria remains serious, new fighter helicopters have replaced new fighters that have been withdrawn from the country, an unnamed high-ranking Israeli air force source told the Defense News interview.




“He (Russian President Vladimir Putin) changed the form of weapons, but did not evacuate. He brought a different kind of property and returned the one that he did not really need, ”the newspaper quotes the interlocutor. Look.

“The materiality of the forces is indicated by the fact that the Russian Ministry of Defense stated that 24 combat missions were flown in 40 hours and that 117 targets were hit in Palmyra,” comments the publication of the word of its source.

“Instead of full-scale withdrawal, Israeli intelligence is expecting a long Russian presence in Syria. In particular, this applies to C-400, aimed at the sky near Turkey - this is clearly a measure to prevent further clashes with this country, ”said the source.

“If he (Putin) wanted to deploy these radars and look at us, he could do it pretty quickly. But it would be a serious change, and we do not think that he has such intentions, ”he noted.

The source highly appreciated the professional interaction between Israel and Russia on the issue of security in the skies of Syria: “Both sides agreed with the rules; each guarding their own borders. "

The Israeli side is worried that “the Syrian Iranian Air Force will settle in Syria after the actual withdrawal of Russia, it would be very difficult for Israel to put up with it,” the source said, noting that at the moment “the Iranian military, on the contrary, is becoming smaller.”

The source also said that “the axis headed by Putin in Syria, formed with the participation of Assad, Iran and Hezbollah, would not have such an impact on the course of the Syrian war if it were not for the Iran nuclear deal: now the initiative was on the side of this axis.”

            Well, why, Putin, at the very beginning, expressed himself very clearly, the main forces will be withdrawn, he said nothing about the minor forces and their rotation. By the way, exactly the same way the Americans withdrew troops from Iraq at one time, and no one was puzzled.

          They do not know how to read / listen to Putin and, moreover, understand. In fact, everything is simple. The President did not say that he deduces all troops. He gave the order to withdraw the main part Russian military group from Syria. About non-core part not a word was said. They say to them, learn the materiel.

        No. Optimization. Really Syrian airbases have been freed, which can be brought into working order in a short time and used at least as jump airfields. And in this case, it makes no sense to drive expensive and piece Su-34 and 24 across the sky. It is possible to use pinwheels to work pointwise with NURS and ATGM, rather than burn kerosene with airplanes from Khmeimim and suppress spirits with guided bombs. The game is not worth the candle. Here the GDP and beautifully furnished the transition to artillery and turntables, with the withdrawal of the main contingent. ”To the delight of the propagandists, use them.

      Vladimir Putin) changed weapons, but did not evacuate

      Evacuated? belay Why on earth? Or a wrong translation, or "an unnamed high-ranking source in the Israeli Air Force" - an impudent, foolish, hamloo.
      It would be more appropriate to declare the withdrawal / return / recall, but not evacuation.
      Evacuation implies the movement of military units under any threat. Whose, in the opinion of the "source", were the threats that frightened the Russians?

      Putin-headed axis in Syria

      Come on, is it really a straight axis ...
      For the first time, the term was used in an annual appeal to the US Congress on January 29, 2002, a few months after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack, by George W. Bush, who assigned Iraq, Iran, and the DPRK to the "axis of evil." In June 2002, US Assistant Secretary of State John Bolton ranked three other countries — Cuba, Libya, and Syria — as the axis of evil. The definition arose by comparing with the so-called. Axis countries (Germany, Italy and Japan) - opponents of the United States during World War II. A new version of the "black list" appeared in January 2005, when K. Rice, speaking in the US Senate, listed the "strongholds of tyranny": Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Belarus, Zimbabwe and Myanmar. On March 16, 2006, seven “despotic regimes” were designated as such - Belarus, Zimbabwe, Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Myanmar, Syria. In February 7, the United States actually added Russia and China to the list of “axis of evil” states.

      Ahhhhh! I realized this is not a source in the Israeli Air Force, it is a source of utter stupidity.

    the Israeli is right in general - the main forces are withdrawn, but this does not mean that Russia will leave Assad to its own devices, withdraw from Syrian affairs and allow the west to stir up another mess. it is necessary to try to bring what has been begun to its logical conclusion. I hope the Syrian military bases of the Russian Federation in one form or another will remain there after the stabilization of the situation and the final victory of the ruling regime.

    In fact, the power of offensive weapons has actually declined - and we are not talking about replacing bombers and assaults with turntables. Ships assigned, which took the place of the defensive coastal system. But their goal is defensive (against external aggression), incl. the claims are not entirely clear. In fact, the assigned units fulfilled their role, and they passed real tests, they have nothing to do there.

    Poor, poor Israelis. They are all threatened, from all sides danger, bullets can be said to whistle overhead. Missiles periodically fly in, though not everyone comes to the ground intact. The plane in Egypt was captured, sent to Cyprus, then the Jews raise two fighters! And he just flew by !!! And from the side of Israel. But the Air Force is not asleep, but a friend of the enemy? Some paranoid shift in their own safety.
    I just can’t understand one thing, how do they even live there in such a constant tension? That way and the roof can go.

They do not even come up with prepositions, they beat it stealthily and that's all. The Iranian Air Force and the SAR will not cope with them, only with large losses.
