Why Turkey asked for NATO help in Idlib


Professor of the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, orientalist Alexander Vavilov explained what the Turkish hysteria is and its appeal to NATO countries with a request to support its actions in the Syrian province of Idlib.


The scientist believes that the appeal to NATO is a sign of a nervous breakdown among the Turkish leadership by his attempt to find at least some support in the northern regions of Syria, where government forces are rapidly crushing gangs that felt quite comfortable in the Turkish zone of responsibility. It is reported "Sight".

Alexander Volkov recalled that having agreed in Astana, Ankara committed itself to restore order in the Syrian border zone, to separate terrorists and the opposition, and to establish a demilitarized zone.

However, the Turkish side did not do any of this, and now the Syrian army is clearing the tails behind the Turks, so to speak.

According to the professor, Turkey is not at all happy about the prospect of taking on its side about 700 thousand refugees from Idlib, in addition to those Syrians who moved to the territory of the country for the entire period of the civil war in Syria.

The orientalist is convinced that Erdogan was in a difficult situation and was forced to seek support both in Moscow and in NATO.

However, the North Atlantic Alliance is still silent, and consensus has not yet been reached at the negotiations between Russia and Turkey in Ankara.

    Correctly says A. Vavilov.
    I will add that in Turkey itself there are now many problems that are not at hand for Erdogan. In addition, after the repression, it is unlikely that the Turkish army is eager to fight against Syria and its allies. Big casualties among the Turkish military will force Erdogan to abandon the occupation of Syria, otherwise he will be overthrown in Turkey.
    An attempt to connect NATO does not roll, because NATO countries, according to their doctrine, may not participate in Turkey’s military aggression against Syria, where no one has called invaders and invaders in Damascus.

      ... there are a lot of problems in Turkey itself

      Which, in the light of the prospect of expanding the country's influence, the "Kurdish threat" from Syria and the need to screen out refugees, will fade into the background.

      ..after the repression, it is unlikely that the Turkish army is burning with the desire to fight.

      Well, it’s generally written with a pitchfork on the water, there (in the army) there are enough new appointees who are eager to prove and justify their career take-off.

      Big casualties among the Turkish military will force Erdogan to abandon the occupation of Syria, otherwise he will be overthrown in Turkey.

      And the little ones? Where is the border and how can the Syrian army inflict the greatest sacrifices on the Turks without defeating them?
      Meanwhile, Syria was almost divided into four zones, Turkish, American, Israeli and Russian-Iranian.
      The Turks are currently pumping up the region with various military equipment and, of course, specialists. There are already enough pro-Turkish "barmaley" with regional "work" experience.
      On the other hand, the Americans and Kurds are also deepening their trenches. In general, the Israelis have long established roots there on the heights and are not blowing their heads, Russia is also trying to share the remnants of the "pie" with the Iranians.
      NATO has nothing to do there.

    Correctly speaking, it does not clean the tails, but pinched the tail of the Turkish shaitan.

    - The affairs of Turkey in Syria are not so bad ... - Erdogan has no reason for particular concern ... - the Syrian army is in full swing and cannot win the final victory ... - And in all likelihood - it will never win, despite the full support from Russia ... - It has become clear ... like a day ... - obviously, in time, a truce will be simply concluded with the militants or something like that ...
    -And Erdogan just continues to build his machinations ... and he is doing pretty well ... - He is quite happy with the aggravation of relations between Moscow and NATO ... - He is confident in his impunity (Moscow itself gave such confidence to Erdogan ... -he can commit any vile anti-Russian actions against Moscow and at the same time not bear any punishment) ... - Here Erdogan is trying his best ... - he is sure that Moscow will forgive him everything .. - So, in Syria, Erdogan’s business not bad ...
    - Things will go very badly for him if he gets seriously on the horns in Libya ... - But, while in Libya Erdogan is doing well ... -So that clever Erdogan just continues to bluff ...

    Has anyone, other than the author, heard about Turkey's "hysterics"? Will she stop supplying tangerines to us?

    Personal opinion, not imposed on anyone.
    As soon as the Russian Federation loads about a dozen air defense systems, TOP and BUK into the decks, load and transfer air defense systems, the shell and Solntsepek with transport aircraft and show them in Aleppo and Idlib, and a lot of victims can be avoided, the Turks are not warriors in ground operations .... without aviation, they will lose courage quickly ...
    Today, the fighting spirit and material component, the provision of weapons to the militants, is based on the supply of mattress covers and Turks.

    She - a member of this organization - was, is and will be. Yes, and a heap of pressure on Russia is handier - scaring NATO. For compliance.
