Arab media: Russia held a military parade in Syrian Tartus for a reason


On July 26, 2020, Russia celebrated Navy Day and held a parade near Syrian Tartus for a reason, writes the Arab newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat, headquartered in London.


In Soviet times, Tartus was just a maintenance center, where ships and vessels entered on rare occasions. However, now the naval base in the port of Tartus (Tartus province) has expanded significantly, it has become the largest such facility outside of Russia. The Russian Navy conducted dozens of various maneuvers off the coast of Syria. The latter ended just a few weeks ago.

It is not the first time that the Russians have organized military parades in Syria. Since 2016, they regularly celebrate Victory Day there. Military personnel are marching and driving along the modernized Khmeimim base (Latakia province) techniqueand aviation is flying in the sky. However, the new event can be safely called an open demonstration of muscles, which is a message to the whole world.

This time, Moscow demonstrated the capabilities of its warships, auxiliary vessels, combat and transport aircraft and helicopters. The naval parade was attended by: diesel-electric submarine "Novorossiysk" (project 636.3), frigate "Admiral Makarov" (project 11356R), sea minesweeper "Vice-Admiral Zakharyin" (project 02668 "Agat"), killer ship "KIL-158 »(Project 141) and rescue tugboat SB-36 (project 714). The air parade was attended by: Ka-27PS, Mi-8AMTSh and Mi-35 helicopters, Su-24, Su-34 bombers, Su-35 fighters, A-50 AWACS aircraft, An-26 and An-72 transports.


The scale of the event indicates that Moscow is about to expand its presence in Syria. The absence of official objections from Damascus and the participation, albeit symbolic, of the Syrian military in the Russian parades suggests that the Syrian authorities do not object to this.

    What a thoughtful conclusion, you can feel the impartial gaze of a disinterested professional. Surely I used to guess on the coffee grounds before. winked

    London Saudis smile

    the newspaper is printed in London, Marseille, New York, Frankfurt, Casablanca, Cairo, Dubai and Beirut, as well as in Saudi Arabia - Riyadh, Jeddah and Dhahran.

    The leading position in the list of its owners is occupied by the family of Prince Ahmed bin Salman, which owns more than 30% of the shares. Al-Sharq Al-Awsat is chaired by a Governing Board. Its composition almost completely repeats the composition of the Governing Body of the Saudi Research and Marketing Group, headed by Prince Faisal bin Salman.

    I would like to wish the ruling dynasty further success in the difficult business of oil production and successfully drive the Turkish occupiers from the long-suffering Libyan land. winked

      2017 year:

      The Stroytransgaz company, the main owner of which is Gennady Timchenko, received a contract for the restoration of phosphate deposits in Syria and, with the support of a Russian PMC, has already begun work

      https://www.rbc.ru/business/27/06/2017/59512f209a79474bb460829d

      (a curious nuance - I didn't find this link in Yandex, I had to google it as an enemy, since my memory is still good)
      2019 year:

      The Syrian authorities have signed a 49-year investment contract with the Russian company Stroytransgaz (CTG) to expand the port of Tartus in the Mediterranean, SAR Minister of Transport Ali Hamoud told the pro-government Syrian newspaper al-Watan

      Field development is a long process. And for Doing Business (for the third time I’ve already told you about this with regards to the “nouveau riche” national idea, which replaced ideology, and you stubbornly do not want to accept this as a fact smile request ) you need infrastructure - since land borders are dangerous, you need a port. 49 years, apparently a payback period plus 10x the margin.

        Is a military presence in the region quick? Did you jump in quickly and look at home?
        You cite facts that do not directly contradict your version, but there is a snag, they do not confirm it. The lease term and the development of deposits are in no way connected. 49 years old? I don't see anything unique in this. request This is, for example, a quote from the Land Code:

        for up to forty nine years in the case of leasing a land plot to the owner of a building, structure located on such a land plot, or premises in them, as well as in other cases not provided for by this paragraph

        I don’t quite understand what you don’t like, the long lease term, or the work of Russian companies in Syria?
        Do you want ideology and everyone to help for free, as in the USSR?

            Mr. Chekmenev, director of the GOO plant, a member of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, regularly does not pay wages to his workers for six months, and those, in order to get their money, regularly run around the courts. Start by paying salaries in factories controlled by your party members, before you climb the country to lead.

              If you contact me, I have nothing to do with the Communist Party. I will explain why - the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, in my opinion, is a completely sold-out (to the owners of money) party, the only reason for its existence is to create the illusion of choice in elections without choice. I have never been a member of the Communist Party and never will. Moreover, they have a "serious people's candidate" there who finds it difficult to compete - a certain Bondarenko, so, to the delight of the socialists, I consider him a populist and a clown (hey me, hey laughing ). Why he is looking for a deputy is a separate question, perhaps it is worth delving into his past. hi

                So the CPSU consisted of such as Gorbachev and the company, and since they were accepted there, and even put at the head of the country and the republics, then the party was frankly rotten and bankrupt.

            You shouldn't laugh - the topic of "the only worthy contractors" at least requires discussion, given the fight against corruption declared in the country.

            Can you name other "worthy contractors" working in Syria? There's no one left there, war, you know. The company has been working there either since 2000 or since 2005. The Iranians were moved out of the field and signed a contract. With whom should he hold contests there?

            I had no doubt that it was long, but I asked the question - what is it for? According to the official version - for the sake of "catching barmaley at the border." But, excuse me, in that case - are the border troops and the FSB unable to cope? And then can I not pay taxes on their maintenance?

            Where did you find such an "official version"? belay They are just "on the distant approaches" disposed of so that they do not get to the border. In addition, there are other interests there, the military presence since Soviet times is also not out of boredom. After the overthrow of Assad, there would be a pipe to Europe.
            Taxes? I do not know if you can not pay or not. request Try it. Border troops and the FSB? Have you heard about the war in Chechnya? If anything, the border troops will not be enough for this. You can also not serve in the army, because if the militants are a stick, then the army is not coping. True, there can be troubles for non-payment of taxes, I recommend changing the country, at least to Belarus, they cope with everything ... while they cope ... and there is an ideology. Will this suit you? Or what do you want?

            This is natural - all capitalists are the same and they need unconditional margin guarantees even before investing.

            What do the capitalists have to do with it? These are the foundations of economics. Who works wrong?

            Nobody "helped" the USSR for free - we still forgive debts. A - could "distribute money to pensioners"

            There the letter "l" was lost. Do you want to help everyone for free?

              A particular danger for us comes from the militants who are concentrated in Syria. There are many people from Russia and the CIS countries among them. They receive money, weapons, accumulate strength and, if they get stronger, win there, they will inevitably end up with us to sow ruin and hatred, blow up, kill, torture people. And we must meet them and destroy them on the distant approaches. That is why the decision was made to launch a military operation on the basis of an official appeal from the legitimate, legitimate Syrian government.

                And you told me about the jingoistic patriots. laughing
                What are the numerous contractors? I repeat the question for the third time:
                WHICH RUSSIAN ENTERPRISES WORK IN SYRIA AND APPLY FOR A DEPOSIT? WITH WHOM TO CONDUCT THE COMPETITION?
                And yet, if there is one, is it worth returning the field under the control of the Iranians? So that everything is fair .... without corruption ... Win the competition and squeeze. Everything is decorous, noble. good

                The article on your link begins with the words:

                Putin: Russia is obliged to destroy terrorists on the distant approaches

                What makes you think that distant approaches are a border?

                I didn't understand the letter l, sorry.

                From one letter, the meaning changed, instead of help from the USSR, help was obtained for the USSR. It doesn't matter, let's go.

                Free aid implies obedience in response to a counter request, but in a world of freedom and democracy, this is utopia.

                Why do you need their obedience? belay Do you want to be a dictator?

                    Before the war, the Syrians worked, then the Basmachi took over, the Iranians recaptured them, the Russians “squeezed them out,” restored them. Now they have signed a contract and are mining. In my opinion, everything is logical. How you want to justify the need to drop everything and start holding contests is not clear.

                    Why do they need to choose from the Russian ones - they don't have their own (they don't need them)? Would you like it if conditional Uzbeks were developing our fields (I have nothing against them, except that because of them Russians are running around on shifts instead of working in their region)?

                    Not to say that I liked it, but if the Uzbeks had saved the country and the terrorists had been dispersed, I would not be indignant. You still let us down that this is an "international duty" and everyone needs to be helped for free?

                    The fact of the matter is that it begins with this, he quoted to understand the context, so as not to be accused of "pulling out". The epilogue is important - how it ends. And the border is the border, that any "distant approaches" end on it.

                    This is a liberal cowardly morality, like that of a wise gudgeon, under a snag, and no matter what happens, we cannot go anywhere, we have no right, but how dare we. negative Look around, at Erdogan, how the EU border near Pskov ended up with the bases of fighting penguins. You will wait for them at home. yes

                    And the border is guarded at our expense, and if you do not have questions about the effectiveness of the protection in the mentioned context, then, probably, the balance after deducting taxes allows you not to think about it

                    So go and get it! What is the problem? And what does the state have to do with it? After all, you can't go abroad on your own no

                    What does Syria have to do with it, it is not clear, it was not in the Warsaw Pact.
                    Forgive me, but the idea of ​​paying for everything in Syria with money collected from former allies in the Department of Internal Affairs is outright nonsense. hi

                      National restoration - so that you live with your mind and money, and not borrowed money with the need to "work out". Returning to the conventional Uzbeks:

                      In the first half of 2019, 2,4 million foreigners came to Russia to work, it follows from the statistics of the FSB border service. These are mainly citizens of the CIS countries, for example, Uzbekistan became the leader in the number of arrivals - 918 thousand people came from this country, 523,9 thousand from Tajikistan, 265 thousand from Kyrgyzstan, 164 thousand from Ukraine, and Kazakhstan - 105,3 thous.

                      https://www.rbc.ru/society/07/10/2019/5d9aef959a7947149f9b6a98

                      If out of a million Uzbeks, every second eventually found a job, this means that half a million Russians were left with the same salaries (adjusted for inflation in state-owned companies, without amendment for “private traders.” Why raise comrade Ivanov's salary if comrade Usmanov is ready to work for a bowl pilaf?)

                      The message is clear, but here you missed - where did you get the idea that I am against "imperial ambitions"? I spoke about the effectiveness of taxpayers' spending on border troops / FSB - since it is necessary to "stop at distant approaches," then there are doubts about stopping at close ones. But, you see, this is not a problem for taxpayers - you can always (if you wish) reallocate appropriations between, say, the Russian Guard and the border troops.

                      Every dictator pretending to be a liberal at heart

                      I have yet to comprehend this philosophical construct. good Am I liberal? In the sense of "not a conservative" - ​​certainly. I don’t know what the dictatorship has to do with it, but a disrespectful attitude towards the opinion of 78% will not end well. smile

                      what does the state have to do with it?

                      While right and left "forgives" Soviet debts, as the legal successor of the USSR. Perhaps this sponsorship eventually led to the USSR budget deficit with all the ensuing consequences.

                      What does Syria have to do with it - it is not clear, it was not in the Warsaw Pact

                      Knew it would "hang on", so I edited it (see my original comment above) smile

                      the idea of ​​paying for everything in Syria with money collected from former allies in the Internal Affairs Directorate is outright nonsense

                      Well, this is your speculation. Let Syria pay for itself (by creating jobs for Syrians in Syria) - at least until the "need" to raise the retirement age disappears in the Russian Federation. hi

    The alignment in Libya is becoming more and more like a trigger for something more serious ... Russia has nothing to get involved in this heap of mala with incomprehensible outcomes. That is, that the fight for a long time, so beneficial to very many and different interested parties to Libyan riches and influence on the Maghreb is a whole queue ...

    These are the basics of economics

    By the way - I want to remind you - yesterday you wanted to clarify the need for Gazprom's trillions of spending on foreign flows (leaks of national wealth). And they also doubted the absence of payments for children on August 1 - something wide PR of this action is not visible (it is understandable - if the money is given out on the 1st, they will forget before the elections, it is impractical; but on the other hand, you can be obliged to write a statement again for payments ( at the same time, save money on those who did not write and increase digitalization due to new registrations for public services - everything is in the piggy bank) and pay 10 days before September 1 - so that voters have time to buy a uniform for school, and the PR effect is not forgotten).

      As far as I remember, it was about the Power of Siberia, they say, they buried money in the ground, gas does not flow, the fields are depleted and gas does not flow through them. If not right, I hope you will correct it. The topic has already been discussed, look at your leisure (there are 2 more parts there). If questions remain, we will discuss. hi

      As far as I remember, you doubted, I said - we will wait a week and see.

      The State Duma approved the extension of payments for children by 10 thousand for August
      State Duma deputies supported the proposal to extend benefits to families with children under 16 for August. This, according to the people's representatives, will help parents get their children to school.

      You have 1 day left to be patient. One way or another, the issue will be resolved. laughing

        Actually, I could not stand it - I myself was able to collect it for school. And how it happened in the end - now we, on August 2, both know. smile
