    However, we’re not fighting so badly. Obviously, not only the pilots and the cover of the base were noted. Or is there the whole General Staff claiming medals?

      Representatives of the General Staff rightfully deserved the award. A majority of them are veterans for a long time. Many went through local conflicts and hot spots.

        VKS, guarding the military base in Latakia (air defense and marines), SSO, military experts seconded to the SAA, personnel of the 720th logistics point of the Russian Navy, crews of ships located in the theater of operations. Given at least one rotation - the figure is quite real.

          Well, I also recorded crews of warships and reconnaissance ships in the cover of the base. And so, if you take transporters (air and sea), and the Caspian flotilla, etc., then yes.
          According to GS, it is clear that without it in any way. So consider yourself joking.

      However, not so bad fighting
      If we compare the number of participants in the anti-terrorist operation in Syria with the number of veterans of the war in Afghanistan, it turns out that the participation of citizens of our country in these conflicts is practically comparable: 620 thousand "Afghan" veterans over 10 years and 25 thousand "Syrian" veterans over six months. Something like this..

      Why not a "member of the SAR"? Or how long does it take to be in Syria to become a veteran? what This is a pure devaluation of the very concept of "veteran", as associated with long-term service or age. But the very first "veterans" will be the staff from Moscow, as usual.

      It always has been, for every warring ten awarded angry
      Well, the benefits and merits of those who are fighting and those who serve, and even more so, hamster in the rear, should at least somehow differ.
      Only when will this happen, and who will make such a decision ...?
      It looks like other "generals" will not see awards and benefits.

      something like that. in Chechnya, the leadership of the OGV (s) also changed quite often - they did not have time to memorize and change in the documents the names and initials of the next commander. and what a sum of expenses! you would think, directly ALL-ALL privileges will be provided to participants. ordinary and sergeant staff will still have to collect a bunch of pieces of paper to get at least one privilege in the civilian world - many will spit on the bureaucracy and score on this red tape

      Me too, but if at least "offhand" to estimate ... it seems to work.
      in servicing the VKS and helicopters let 1000,
      Navy + several thousand at once,
      sappers (Palmyra) + gunners let a thousand
      Air defense, let a thousand
      Special Forces and Marines ...?
      + rotation + attendants, technicians, instructors
      Probably these 25000 thousand people are running over.

    There’s not even much for such an operation. There was rotation, and adviser-instructors worked. Not only pilots. And intelligence, and aircraft manufacturers, and other and other. For the budget of the Ministry of Defense, these are seeds. And for men - honor and respect.

    This is very small, given the rotation of personnel. It is very good that they approved the status of veterans, this is not a lot of money and benefits for military personnel and civilians who took part in helping the ATS.

    As far as I know, pilots and personnel were sent on business trips for a period of 1-2 months, then they were replaced so that as many people as possible gained experience in combat use.

    So in 25'000 I don't see anything strange, the crews changed, the staff changed, all this happened repeatedly.

    To all participants - past and future - I wish only one thing - to return home safe and sound!

    Read the position on the title Veteran Fighting. Everything is registered there, staff from Moscow will receive their benefits, but not as participants (if they did not directly participate). For example here

    The core of Assad’s army, as I understand it?
    It seems that the Syrians themselves are not particularly eager to shed blood for the sake of the "alternatively elected"?
    Those who are weak in faith join the ranks of ISIS, those who are smarter are dumped into Europe, and some of the patriots self-organized, grabbed a part of the territory for themselves and chases the ISIS members, not forgetting to kick in the groomed ass of a loser dictator from time to time. Yes, take at least the same Kurds - by the way who are they: fighters for freedom and independence or lousy "separatists" (and what has Ukraine to do with it)?
    Assad is a vicious Pinocchio for himself - if he hadn’t divided the Syrian people into 2 grades: the highest Alavite and the lowest for everyone else, you look and there would be no ISIS in Syria ...

    Our Russia is big, but in any village you will always find at least five veterans of hostilities, a country that is constantly at war to one degree or another. The operation in Syria in terms of financial costs-results ratio, a model for the "Western coalition". The rotation is carried out operational, why pilots to work out on ranges when there are other goals. New methods of conducting, planning operations. One SVP-24 system that is worth, turned huge stocks of Soviet free-fall bombs into precision weapons. New models of weapons and military equipment were tested. Solid effective advertising for our military-industrial complex. Cooling the hot heads of "partners" can not be enumerated. Advisers of all ranks and specialties, special forces, intelligence ....... Good

    And for 2600 rubles a month, the state will not become poorer for a DB veteran.

    People serve the motherland, took the oath of allegiance to her, this is the first. Second, there is a concept - Honor. Third, I assure you, not one Member of the hostilities, heading to the place of (no matter what) hostilities, does not think about benefits !!! You are not about the essence of the matter.
    The controversy over the issue is redundant. I have the honor.

    No more than 25 people will receive social support under the new law on veterans of the Russian operation in Syria.

    This was announced at a meeting of the State Duma by the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Anatoly Antonov, RBC reports. He spoke at the bill on the assignment of the status of war veterans to the participants in the operation in Syria. Get it all Russians heading for special tasks in Syria since September 30, 2015. Thus, the Ministry of Defense estimated the number of participants in the operation, naming the number of people who will be able to obtain the status of a war veteran in Syrian territory.

    "25 thousand people - this is a rotated contingent"- said Deputy Chairman of the Committee for Veterans Affairs Mikhail Moiseev." This figure is included in the budget for the total number of those who participated in the operation at different times, This does not meanthat there were 25 thousand people held there at a time, "he explained.

    In other words, 25 thousand is the total number of participants in the operation in Syria (including civilian personnel) during all this time carrying out this operation starting September 30, 2015 and ending with the future presidential decree on its completion.

    Operation for now continues, if we assume that now there are 3-4 thousand of our military and civilians (plus or minus), and 7-10 thousand (including all rotations) have been there for 12 and a half months, then the duration of the operation will depend on the number of rotations and their size, until they come up to the limit of 25 thousand voiced by the Ministry of Defense.

    Was someone forcibly taken to Syria? In my opinion, only contract soldiers. When signing the contract, they knew that they were not going to serve as a security guard in a hypermarket. And do not watch the parking lot. And now the state owes them a lifetime? Benefits, money, cars, apartments .. Nothing that a good salary for this received and get?
    PS: Lovers of "freebies", if only to get something from the state ... 2600 is no longer money, but other benefits and tries are not needed .. I've seen enough of both "Chernobyl victims" and "veterans" .. If you take the conditional 1000 people, then, in all conscience, they are entitled to benefits - hardly 20-25 people. I speak as a person who has come across these m for 3.5 years .. more than close .. And I saw these lists several times a day ...
