        Negotiations separately, and the war with Daesh separately. Well done Syrians, beat motley rabble. With the help of our VKS and the Syrian express in the face of the Navy.

          The US is behaving exactly like Ukraine. Have got yourself "pocket" radicals, now the radicals have proliferated, the US will slam them, and the West does not want and cannot. They cover and feed this evil, and they themselves suffer from them, or rather citizens. A very stupid, rat and ostrich policy.

      Right now, the suns and spinners will turn up about from the outskirts to the outskirts and begin to squeeze out frostbite, leave a corridor to exit like in Palmyra and manage minefields to put it on it and it will be a bearded paradise.

    What is called, "got a taste"! Judging by the timing, this is the result of the work of our instructors, who were preparing the tactical echelon, and training the crews of the armored forces. And, of course, my favorite artillery. Now they will consolidate the theory with practice, and the CAA may become the most serious force in the BV, with which ALL neighbors will have to reckon. So far, not a single country that organized the Arab spring (except Egypt) has remained whole.
    Great authority gets Russia!

    Now guys, it will be easier. "Kuzmich" goes to the Mediterranean Sea.

    Kuznetsov only runs around the su-33 and instant-29k, which in itself is very important. A departure plane needs 6-7 tons of kerosene. Plus a ton of weapons, this is so, roughly estimated on the fingers. Even if you make 40 sorties a day, 320 tons. For a week or two maximum. And if it’s possible to pump kerosene into the sea from a tanker (by the way, is this really possible or is it necessary to base?), Then ammunition is unlikely. It will not replace the aircraft carrier of a full-fledged airfield. It can be supported by increasing the intensity of the airborne missions in Syria for a while, but the land airport will not replace.

    Four SAA assault groups - two of them of the 18th division and two more national militias - entered the northern quarters of El-Karjateyna. LifeNews publishes the first footage of liberating the city from ISIS *.
    According to LifeNews correspondent Arthur Kebekov, ISIS fighters immediately transferred additional forces to the northern outskirts of the city, where fierce fighting ensued.
    Under the control of the CAA, there are already eight buildings in the perimeter of the city. Of all the Karyatein mosques, there is a call for jihad on the loudspeakers: "Everyone who is able to hold weapons must fight the Syrian army so that it does not enter the city."
    According to the correspondent, three assault units of the Syrian army took control of Al-Khrubi and Al-Khezem, as well as storming Al-Karyatein plantations from the north-west. Fierce battles are in the region of Rmel from the north. In these areas, units of the 11th and 18th divisions of the SAA operate. Russian aviation supports the offensive.
    Things have gone, we are waiting for the complete liberation of this Christian city and all of Syria. Good luck to the fighters.

    Don't just stand. Let it combine useful with useful. And the planes run in, and the flag is displayed, and the Ottomans are scared, the crew and pilots get acquainted with the theater. And if pilots in a pair of another x-29 are released in the basmachi, it will be generally good.

    Systematically crush reptiles. Apparently the training has appeared and there is no shortage of funds already.
    But here we have a closer hot spot formed, you can say at your side.
    Nagorno-Karabakh is called ...
    And how things begin to develop there is not yet clear.
