The main defense department of Russia has denied the statements of the Western media about the creation in Syria of the second military base of the Russian Federation

Over the past few weeks, various foreign media have published materials stating that Russia intends to open a second military base in Syria - in the Palmyra region. In the materials of the Associated Press, statements appeared that Russian troops allegedly had already begun to build infrastructure facilities of such a base. As a “confirmation”, AP published a satellite image in which not far from historical part of the city marked the location of Russian troops.


However, the official representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Major General Igor Konashenkov, rumored about the creation of a new military base in the SAR. Press office The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation cites the statement of General Konashenkov:
There were no "new Russian bases" on the territory of the Syrian Palmyra. The satellite images of the territory of this region, which are mentioned by the AP agency, are indicated by UNESCO. The temporary camp (campus) of the units of the International Anti-Mineral Center of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, previously engaged in demining the historical part of Palmyra, and today - the settlement of Tadmor. I want to note that the temporary camp of military engineers, and the hospital, and the bakery plant are no secret. They got acquainted with their work and made reports from more than 150 journalists of leading foreign media during the last 5 press tour in May, when maestro Valery Gergiev performed a concert with the Mariinsky Theater Orchestra in Palmyra. I think that if the journalists of this authoritative agency had personally visited Palmyra and this temporary camp, today they would not have invented a “pseudo-sensation” about building a Russian base in Palmyra from scratch.

Recall that in the territory liberated from the militants of ISIL Palmyra, the work of the Russian and Syrian sappers continues to demine the territory of the city. The fighters, retreating, left behind hundreds of mines and explosive devices installed throughout the territory of Tadmor, trying to stop the advance of the SAR army.

    And why should our servicemen be distributed to the homes of residents? Then they will shout about our "atrocities". Sometimes you definitely want to repeat the catch phrase of our Minister of Foreign Affairs: "Morons.B ...."

        Actually, the United States itself is trying to illegally build an air base in northern Syria, but they themselves deny everything and scream in order to divert attention from their affairs.

    Correctly, let even the tent set up in a field with a developing tricolor be afraid, there is our base and the barmaley need to stay as far away from it as possible.

    I think that our refutation only plays into the hands of the "information soldiers" of the West. There is no need to make excuses, but you really need to create a new base. And then let the United States choke in its Russophobic heartburn.

    Yes, if they had built, then what?
    To whom to write a complaint. Maybe file a protest on behalf of UNESCO.
    What do you care.

    Why refute speculation! Let everyone think that this is so if they want to.
    This is how we level the chances of the number of bases. laughing

    Do we need new bases? There are already created abroad, in Armenia, for example. I think it would not be bad to equip them and upgrade military equipment, it would be more reasonable.

    Isn’t it dangerous in tents? They would dig a bunker or something.
