Control over the Syrian border with Turkey transferred to the military police of Russia

The memorandum of understanding adopted following the meeting of the Presidents of Russia and Turkey in Sochi, among other points, stipulates the procedure for controlling the Syrian-Turkish border.




As follows from the text of the document, the units of the Russian military police and the Syrian border service from 12:00 on October 23 are introduced on the Syrian side of the Syrian-Turkish border outside the Turkish Source of Peace zone of operations.

The main task of military police will be to facilitate the withdrawal of Kurdish armed forces outside the 30-kilometer zone adjacent to the Turkish border.

The Russian military faces a difficult task: within 150 hours they need to ensure the withdrawal of the Kurds, in accordance with the agreements reached.

After the withdrawal is completed, the parties will proceed to the next stage, which provides for joint Russian-Turkish patrolling to a depth of 10 km from the border to the west and east of the operation area "Source of Peace", except for the city of Kamyshly.

The US Special Representative for Syria, James Jeffrey, expressed doubt that Moscow will be able to fully fulfill its obligations and this will lead to a worsening of the situation in the region.

However, is it worth paying attention to the words of a representative of a country that for many years has achieved nothing in the region and finally abandoned its long-standing allies?

    - Horror ... It's just horror ... Finally, they finally pushed Russia and Turkey between their foreheads ...
    -Now you can make "black bets" ... on how ... how ... how ... how long, for what period will this whole "candy-bouquet" period between Russia and Turkey last ... - three months; five months; six months, etc ... - Personally, I think much less ...
    - The Americans simply slipped Russia this Turkey ... with all its problems ... - fuck, they say, Russia, now with it ...
    - Russia has got into a very difficult situation ... - now it is urgent to transfer Russian armored vehicles, heavy weapons, etc. to Syria ... - Create technical centers in Syria to repair, service and even produce Russian weapons .., as well create a real large Russian naval base ... Deploy in Syria something like a whole Russian military district or fortified area ...
    - The United States, the whole NATO bloc, etc. are behind Turkey.
    - And behind Russia, as always ... there is no one ... - You simply cannot count on someone ... - And there are still colossal problems ahead with the Turkish Gas Pipeline and with the restoration of the destroyed Syrian cities ...
    - The question is ... will Russia manage such monstrous space expenditures ...; and "is it worth the candle" ...

    The main plus of Putin is that the US military left Syria. The United States never voluntarily left the countries they occupied. And then you need to look. The US for the security of Europe requires 2% of GDP. If Russia acts like the United States in Europe, maybe our gasoline will be cheaper than milk, for example!

      For example, all oil production and refining remained in eastern Syria under the Kurds and US cover.
      Keep drinking milk calmly.

      So far we have climbed in, but where, as yet not understood, 200 cargo is not far away.
      As soon as the Turks bring refugees 2–3 mil, and among them the terrorists, into the zone, and the battles begin again, whoever, then it will be clear about excellent plans.

        While we climbed, but where, until we understood,

        They got into Syria if you are not in the know. And very well there they defended their interests.

        As soon as the Turks bring refugees of 2-3 million into this zone, and among them the terrorists, and the battles begin again, whoever whom - then it will be clear about excellent plans.

        There are already refugees and terrorists there, in order to save civilians, refugees and destroy terrorists, that's why we got a foothold there.
