The Russian Defense Ministry refutes publications in foreign media about the death of several Russian soldiers in the province of Rakka (Syria)

33
Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, Major General Igor Konashenkov, commented on numerous publications in the foreign press about the fact that several Russian servicemen were killed in Syria the other day. Initially, attention was drawn to the fact that all without exception foreign (and not only) media referred to the publication of a source directly connected with ISIS. We are talking about the resource "Amak". It was on this resource that photographs of several Russian servicemen appeared who allegedly died in the Syrian province of Rakka.


The Russian Defense Ministry refutes publications in foreign media about the death of several Russian soldiers in the province of Rakka (Syria)


The Office of the Press Service and Information cites a statement by Major General Igor Konashenkov, refuting the materials of the igil propaganda resource:
All of the military personnel whose photos were published by the terrorist group ISIL, their Ukrainian "friends", and the London "Human Rights Observatory in Syria" are alive, healthy and in the location of their units.


According to Konashenkov, the photos were published from a phone that was previously stolen in the territory of the Russian Federation.

Official representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation:
The only question that arises here is how these photos almost simultaneously appeared on the site of ISIS and the teams of Ukrainian propagandists-spiteful critics of Russia?

        The bearded men tried to connect the death of our guys with the Syrian burned Kamaz while retreating along the road from Raqqa.

        But Kamaz burned even when attacking Raqqa. Definitely a fake.

    In the West, everyone is perplexed about why Russia does not suffer huge losses among personnel in Syria. They must say: Do not wait gentlemen!

    how did these photographs appear almost simultaneously on the site of ISIS and the teams of Ukrainian propagandists-spiteful critics of Russia?

    When Ukrainian propagandists closely interact with ISIS, the question is removed by itself. But the Ukrainian spiteful critics are actively helped by Russian liberal traitors, who endlessly trumpet about the "annexation" of Crimea and the hordes of our troops in South-East Ukraine. That's where the legs grow from.

      Especially the fact that these "legs" will not cut them. Everyone argues with them, they play, they call on talk shows. There is something wrong with that. Liberast is a cancerous tumor in Russia. And the tumor is excised, not nurtured; they argue in it and prove to healthy cells how bad it is.

          I just did not understand what you had in mind the photos of the dead soldiers. They are definitely not there. There is not even a trace of blood, not like a soldier.

    Well, there was no assertion that exactly those depicted in the photo were killed, just the images found suggested. that the owner or someone else could die. in general, an interesting topic - cell phones from military personnel in the combat zone, instrumental intelligence, since no one canceled, and thus track the deployment of units ...

      Well, there was no assertion that exactly those depicted in the photo were killed, just the images found suggested. that the owner or someone else could die.

      This is not the point, they are trying to tie, because:
      We cannot confirm the claims that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has KAMAZ-63501AT artillery tractors in service: for the entire time of the Russian operation in Syria, we have never seen information that such tractors were used by SAA soldiers. At the same time, from the beginning of the Russian operation in Syria, information has been received and continues to come about how Russian soldiers use such tractors in Syria.

      At the same time
      ISIS also published a video of KAMAZ destroyed by a landmine, stating that it was in it that there were three killed Russian soldiers. The analysis of this video allows us to say with confidence that the KAMAZ-63501AT artillery tractor was destroyed. However, in the video we see neither human remains, nor blood.

      At the same time, RIA FAN correspondent Roman Saponkov, who reports from the area of ​​the events described, refutes ISIS reports. According to him, Assad’s army has the same trucks and that they saw this destroyed KAMAZ on the road before the start of the ISIS counterattack

      Something like this.

      So there they posted a photo of the TIN. What adequate person will carry a phone with a photo of his TIN? Or have they opened a tax in Syria?

    Ordinary photos from a regular phone. Nothing special.
    The spirit, except for the burnt KamAZ and the Syrian jacket, showed nothing.
    But to us, if we refute such fakes, we need to show live people.
    Still impressed with the 5000 SAA escape from Rassafa.

    My minus. You don’t have to show live from the word at all. The war with ISIS is one in conflict where appearing on posters and billboards is bad for business.

    Rot appears where conditions exist for it. So the information war takes place because the military operations of the SAA, with shooting from cover "overhead", have become the norm with them. The shame of the SAA's "heroic retreat" will soon be transformed as the shame of Russia.

    Perhaps we too accustomed the SAA to air control and regular fire support .. But the days of Saladin passed, the East is no longer the same. America burst and spread cowards on all continents ..
