The head of the Main Operations Department of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Lieutenant General Sergei Rudskoy held a briefing during which he spoke about the situation in Syria and the hostilities aimed at the destruction of terrorist groups. For a start, General Rudskoy recalled that since February 27, by mutual agreement of Russia and the United States, Syria has begun the process of implementing a set of measures aimed at resolving the situation. Numerous groupings have joined the process, however, there are a lot of those who continue to use weaponincluding civilians in the country.


Sergei Rudskoy noted that the Russian aviation continues to support the Syrian army fighting ISIS. On the official YouTube channel, the Ministry of Defense published a video of a strike by a Mi-28N helicopter against Igilov armored vehicles in the Tadmor region (Palmyra):



From the statement of Lieutenant General Rudsky about the course of the liberation of Palmyra:

In the outskirts of Palmyra, illegal armed groups by the beginning of March concentrated over 4 thousand militants, at least 25 tanks and BMP, more than 20 units of barrels and rocket artillery, over 40 mortars, about 100 anti-tank systems, more than 50 cross-country vehicles with heavy weapons installed. In addition, the terrorists had more than 10 trucks loaded with explosives under the control of suicide bombers, as well as complexes of unmanned aerial vehicles.

Around n.p. Tadmor (Palmyra) by the ISIL terrorist groups created an entire system of fortifications, including several defense echelons, as well as a network of long-term strongholds equipped with firing points at commanding heights and command and control points.

Russian military advisers took an active part in the development of the operation to free Palmyra.

After the formation of a grouping of forces from March 6, the operational direction of "Palmyra" began the offensive actions of the Syrian troops with the support of Russian aviation. At the first stage of the offensive operation, the main transport routes around the city were blocked.

The positions of the terrorists were systematically fired by the artillery and aviation of the Syrian government forces.

Aircraft VKS of Russia actively supported the units of the Syrian army and the national militia.

In the period from 7 to 27 March, in the interests of the units of government troops in the Palmyra region, the Russian Aerospace Force carried out about 500 combat missions, during which more than 2000 air strikes were made against ISIS terrorists. As a result of these attacks, the main strongholds and artillery positions at all commanding heights were destroyed first of all.




Sergei Rudskoy confirmed earlier information from Syria that the ISIL militants tried to flee Palmyra towards Al-Raqqah and Deir ez-Zor, but were attacked from the air by the Russian Aerospace Forces. Igilovtsam was inflicted significant damage in manpower and military equipment.

From the statement of General Rudsky:
I want to emphasize that not one historical Palmyra's facility was not damaged as a result of the actions of the Russian air forces.

All scattered ISIS gangs that broke out of the encirclement were destroyed by Russian aviation, which prevented them from leaving in the direction of Raqqah and Deir ez-Zor.

The return of the control of Syrian troops over Palmyra will make it more difficult for gangs to regroup and transfer reserves between the northern and southern regions of Syria, and will also significantly reduce the defensive capabilities of gangs in the Damascus and Aleppo cities.


According to the representative of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, the Russian sapper units arrived in Palmyra, which begin demining the city with the use of special military equipment, including the Uran-6 robots.

        I want to emphasize that not a single historical object of Palmyra was damaged as a result of the actions of the Russian videoconferencing system.


        This is an advance, and they will raise a howl that Russia bombed everything.

          The Russian Ministry of Defense called the basis for the "analysis" of experts about the alleged death of civilians as a result of the actions of the Russian air forces in Syria British speculation “Human rights livestock».
          So, the Russian Ministry of Defense commented on the report of British “analysts” from the AirWars Monitoring group (Air War Monitoring Group, AMG) about the alleged mass deaths of civilians in Syria as a result of the bombing of Russian air forces that appeared on the Internet and some Russian information resources.
          "The sudden appearance in public of another" group of analysts "with new accusations of the actions of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria leads to sad thoughts about the intellectual sterility of our prim" friends "in the special services of Foggy Albion," said the official representative of the Russian Defense Ministry, Major General Igor Konashenkov.
          He noted that it’s enough to look at the personal composition of the “analysts” of AMG in order to once again discover among them the recently popular category of experts called “international journalist”.
          “And, by the way, some of them are at the same time included in another community of“ experts ”- Billingcat, known for its speculation about Russia's alleged involvement in the tragic death of the Malaysian Boing MH-17 in the sky of Ukraine,” said the representative of the Russian Defense Ministry.
          "Is it worth adding that the basis for the" analysis "of these would-be experts of the actions of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria were the conjectures of the British" human rights "livestock," Konashenkov said.
          According to him, this phenomenon is, in fact, a new sign from the same British "whistleblowers from already battered offices" such as the "Syrian Observatory of Human Rights" and the like.
          “And the very renewal of the“ assortment ”of British“ analysts ”is a primitive move at the level of first-year students mastering the basics of marketing at a provincial college. Another thing is surprising. Why all these anti-Russian "experts", "analysts", "activists", "human rights activists" and simply haters of Russia, like poisonous mushrooms, grow and multiply so well on the lands of the British kingdom? What did it take to irrigate the soil there for centuries in order to remove such poisonous crops now? " - said Konashenkov.
          He also noted that no less surprising is “the absolute credulity and uncritical readiness of certain Russian media from the sphere of business and economics to take seriously the works of such British scientists.” And then shout about them as a "sensation" inside Russia.

How, then, should one take seriously and trust their analytical materials on economics or finance? ", - noted the official representative of the RF Ministry of Defense.

          the approach time both times is 9 seconds. The distance at the first start-up is 3,7 km, at the second - 4,7 km. What is it like? Speed ​​in the first case - 411m / s, and in the second - as much as 522m / s!
          The estimated time of approach in the first case was 11 seconds, and in the second - 14 seconds. I can only assume that the OMS conducted the calculations for ATRA-V ATGMs, but in fact they launched Whirlwind-1. what

            The helicopter flies at different speeds at a certain moment, the difference is 80 km / h and different launch heights. Therefore, in the first case, from start to defeat, it takes 6-7 seconds, in the second 9.
            Why was the time before the defeat of static targets both times shown incorrectly?
            And this is because the helicopter flies fast enough (well, the speed of the rocket is not constant +/- 10 m / s), if the helicopter fired from the hovering mode, it would coincide second per second. In this case, the approximate time wink

              the speed of the helicopter does not really matter. Moreover, the Attack does not accelerate above 400m / s even when it is launched along the course. The start point is when the "asterisk" at the bottom center disappears. Only from this moment the countdown begins. In this case, the first indication of the seconds remaining before the target is hit occurs one second after the launch.

                helicopter speed does not matter much.
                Why doesn’t it? For ATGM speed? - Yes, it does not. At the same time, the ATGM speed is not always the same, one will fly 5 km with an average speed of 400 m / s, the other the same distance with 380 m / s (weather / launch altitude, etc.) But for the helicopter calculator it still has.
                The start point is when the "asterisk" at the bottom center disappears.
                Well, count it, the first start attack is allowed - 10s (start), defeat at 3c travel time ~ 7c, the second attack start 14 (13) defeat at 5s travel time ~ 9c, i.e. at an ATGM speed of 400 m / s = 800 m. In the first, it was fired 3,8 km; in the second, 4,7 km, the difference was 900 m. Add here the errors on the average speed of the rocket, as well as the fact that in the first case the helicopter is faster catching up with a rocket (and after launch it also scored almost 20 km / h), and the second went at about the same heading speed, hence a small error of +/- 400ms

                  travel time is not 7 seconds. Watch carefully. Well, think carefully, what does the speed of the helicopter and ATGM have to do with it. There is nothing more to advise.

                    travel time is not 7 seconds.
                    Even if you count the start time of the video footage on the border 3-4s - a defeat on the border 10-11. Just read carefully 7 seconds. Those. the calculator with a slight error almost got into the 10-ku (which is, but since the target is stationary)
                    Well, think carefully, what does the speed of the helicopter and ATGM have to do with it.
                    What is there to think? The calculator, according to the laser rangefinder, calculates the distance to the target at the time of the launch of the rocket, takes the speed of the rocket at the time of launch as the average on the trajectory for a given type of rocket, makes an adjustment for the strength and direction of the wind from here considers the approximate flight time. After the launch of a rocket, taking into account the change in its own speed and spatial position, as well as the telemetry received from the ATGM, it will correlate the flight time (for ATGM maneuvers on the trajectory (as the maneuvering and the helicopter, and even changing its speed), which naturally affects the flight speed), if if the target was not stationary, then the flight time under certain conditions might not even decrease but temporarily increase by several hundred milliseconds (blink up, for example, like 10-9-8-7-6-5-6-5-4-3 ) This flight time parameter is dynamically recounted constantly from here and the error.

Would there be an operation in Syria, was this possible? And, after all, someone else considers money. Like, they spent a lot. What money can measure the prestige of the state?
