Military Review

Almost a year later, the Russian government approved an agreement on an air base in Syria

51
RIA News with reference to sources in the government of the Russian Federation, reports that an agreement has been approved with Damascus on the permanent deployment in Syria of a group of Russian aircraft and helicopters of the Russian Federation Air Force. This agreement has been sent for ratification to the State Duma. It is noteworthy that the government approved this agreement almost a year after it was signed in Damascus (it is reported that the agreement itself was signed back in August of 2015). Given that we are talking about military time in Syria, when every day in this country at the hands of terrorists people die, the bureaucratic delays look very strange.


Almost a year later, the Russian government approved an agreement on an air base in Syria


The agreement says that Syria provides the Russian military aviation the possibility of being at the Khmeimim airbase on a permanent and free basis.

Against this background, the discussion continues on the issue of responsibility of Turkey for the Russian bomber Su-24 shot down in November last year. Ex-deputy of the Bundestag and ex-deputy chairman of the PACE Willie Wimmer in his interview to the news agency "Sputnik" He expressed the opinion that Turkish military aircraft struck the Russian bomber with the help of other “partners”. In particular, we can talk about aircraft of the USAF and Saudi Arabia.

From an interview with Wimmer:
According to my information, one American and one Saudi AWACS aircraft participated in this. Such a plane as this Russian bomber, just do not shoot down: you must send a fighter to the target. This can only airplanes ARLO. The American board started in Cyprus, another flew from a base in Saudi Arabia. What happened there does not correspond to generally accepted international rules. They shot down a Russian plane because they wanted to shoot it down.

Again, this is a statement the former western official. As soon as individual officials receive the prefix "ex", they can afford to express sound thoughts. As acting officials do not always work.

      The agreement states that Syria provides Russian military aviation with the opportunity to be at the Hmeimim airbase on a permanent and free of charge basis.



      The United States will write boiling water, but it will seek to eliminate Assad.

        Assad probably has a receiver from among his supporters, who, if something happens, will replace him.
        Anything can happen in a war, and Assad understands this very well.
        The United States wants to remove not only Assad, but also all his supporters, so that they could plant their puppets, as in Ukraine.
        And tear Syria from any influence of Russia.

        And we do not care what the US is writing to? Whoever got up earlier - that and fresh air in the toilet. Assad will not be merged. Dot. And the states have looked, are looking for and will look for an opportunity to "lower" Russia. It's just troublesome. We are not shitting at their borders. And the hat, as you know, burns on the thief. So let them piss and poop as they like, and Syria went under our roof.

      Without Russia, it would have long been buried. And for free ... In a good way, Syria must also pay extra. But so good. And why didn’t they ratify for so long? So it was on the verge. And now the situation has stabilized, transferred to the work plane. It is possible to deal with the bureaucracy more densely.

In particular, we can talk about aircraft of the US Air Force and Saudi Arabia.

        Here I see a clear message to Russia: Turkey is hiding from us who actually shot down our plane. Some countries clearly do not want a rapprochement between Russia and Turkey. Therefore, I think, such "opinions" came from the "former" deputies of the Bundestag. Although I do not exclude that they are telling the truth. The question is: why now, and not when the plane was shot down?

          Initially, it was clear to everyone and everything that they wanted to shoot down and that Erdogan was crowing loudly, feeling "support" behind him, even people on the ground, on the ground, were warned and ready.
          What happened there does not comply with generally accepted international rules. They shot down a Russian plane because they wanted to bring it down.

          I really want to believe that it will come back to all the organizers.

      In the presence of long-range missiles, this didn’t make much sense. Putin said once, saying why do we need bases around the world, who do we need and so get.
      Now apparently there is a reason. The base is not only presence, it is geopolitical pressure. And the base must be maintained - fuel, food, accommodation, etc. And all this must be delivered, what is the problem.

        Any base should be maintained, even if only on our territory, and in Syria there is, as you have noticed, a geopolitical interest and it is not even a matter of getting anyone anywhere or not.

      Hoping with Fashington agree. And then the new administration will come soon - it makes no sense to talk with smoked.

      By the way, at one time (God forbid) the authorities may abandon the base, for the sake of normalizing relations. Well, the Turks may now try to improve relations, so that later there is something to bargain with the United States.
