An expert on how Moscow and Damascus can stop Erdogan’s operation in Idlib


Russia and Syria need to take retaliatory actions that can cool the ardor of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and frustrate his plans for a military operation in Idlib.


This in an interview with the publication "Sight" said the famous Russian orientalist Semyon Bagdasarov.

According to the expert, the Syrian army cannot resist the Turkish one in its capabilities, therefore Damascus should direct its efforts towards reaching agreements with the Kurdish component of the Syrian Marxist forces and try to create a separate Kurdish corps within the SAA.

In addition, Baghdasarov believes that Syria should make a claim for the return of the Alexandria sanjak - its territory, which Turkey illegally torn away in September 1939. Damascus must claim this area, including the city of Antioch.

The orientalist notes that such a move is able to consolidate the Syrians and even attract individual representatives of the current opposition to their side.

Another important factor that will help keep Erdogan’s ambitions in check, Bagdasarov considers the support of the Marxist-Leninist, leftist groups in Turkey, as it was before 1998.

Using these opportunities, Damascus is quite capable of curbing Ankara, which has long laid eyes on the Syrian Idlib and Aleppo.

However, the orientalist warns that the inaction of the Syrian authorities in this matter can lead to very sad consequences.

      But what does Lavrov have to do with it? This is the business of Damascus, not Russia. The expert correctly said.

      Go cook steel in blast furnaces, and the East is cooked in a thin boiler, where any overheating is fraught with a common explosion for everyone and for Russia too. Under this war, the sultan, on the contrary, can gain a rating, and chop off a lot of territory from a neighbor, taking advantage of his weakness. And it is not profitable for us to fight with the Sultan, at least for now.

    The title of the article does not match the content. Unfortunately. The author is simply trying to increase the number of views. The article is empty, about nothing. In general, this does not pull on the article either, so a note ...

    Semyon Arkadevich, when he talks about the Kurds, in particular the PKK, forgets all the time that the USSR is no longer there, and the Russian Federation is led by anti-Soviet and anti-communists are former carriers of party cards of a member of the CPSU. sad

      forgets all the time

      This is not his sin alone, many celestials are still trying to hide behind the legends of the USSR and receive personal dividends.
      They seem to be forgotten. It is comparable to phantom reflexes in amputated limbs.

    It is time to introduce the strategic forces of the Russian Federation - Rospotrebnadzor, Rostourism, introduce a ban on the mention of anything related to Turkey and the Turkish syllable ....
    Most likely, it’s time for the Winged Coercion Caliber to demonstrate a compulsion to peace.

    Most amazing is the narrow-mindedness of the bearded militants of all kinds. They don’t realize that their Turks threw, for a long time, now, so as not to be kept on their neck, they are sent to the fire of SAA and VKS, like cannon fodder targets ... Men and youth in the frenzy and heat of brainwashed will be physically destroyed and women and children are assimilated under the Turkish language, laws, culture - cheap rabsila ..
    Another alternative they simply do not see, which is very unfortunate.

      You tell this to our neighbors (like, Ukrainians), maybe the Slav brothers’s brains will hatch and they will understand who dances them.
