First clash with militants from Syria took place in Russia


The war in Nagorno-Karabakh can backfire very painfully on Russia and a number of neighboring states. The Islamist militants deployed to Transcaucasia from Syria have already begun to operate on the territory of our country. Could a terrorist war start again in the North Caucasus?


The day before, a shootout took place in the capital of Chechnya, as a result of which four militants were killed, and the National Guard lost two killed and one wounded. The head of the republic, Ramzan Kadyrov, commented on this on the social network as follows:

All recently, these shaitans have been on the run outside of Russia, hiding in Syria and other countries. Now, having received an order from their Western sponsors, they returned and decided to carry out a series of terrorist attacks.

The fight against terrorism in Chechnya is ongoing. Over the past two years, the special services have prevented 36 terrorist attacks, detained nearly one and a half hundred suspects in preparation for their commission, and identified 35 secret cells of banned terrorist organizations. The key question is what kind of "Western sponsors" they are, and on the territory of which specific countries, except for Syria, they took refuge.

Unfortunately, the Russian border in the North Caucasus cannot be considered securely closed. Alpine terrain is almost impossible to fully control. At the same time, the Kremlin does not have the most friendly partners from the other side. For example, long before the 2008 war, Georgia was considered the main transit area for militants to cross into Chechnya. This could be done both independently along the mountain paths, and with the connivance of the corrupt Georgian border guards. The detained members of Ruslan Gelayev's gang later confirmed that in 2002 they were let through by the border guards of "independent" Georgia. After the "Olympic war" and Moscow's recognition of the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, nothing good can be expected from Tbilisi.

But in this case, the suspicion quite rightly falls on another country. After the start of the war in Nagorno-Karabakh, Azerbaijan is rapidly turning from a sane partner into a state hostile to Russia. From many sources there are reports that Ankara, with Baku's permission, is sending jihadist fighters from Syria to fight against Armenia in Karabakh. Turks pay the Islamists for the war with Christians from 1,5 to 2 thousand dollars a month. A video appeared on the web, clearly confirming participation of Syrian militants in the armed conflict in the Caucasus.

According to a number of military experts, the militants killed in Grozny arrived in Chechnya from Azerbaijan in transit through Dagestan. All this causes justified concern on the part of Russia and other regional powers. It is not so much the Islamists on the battlefield for Nagorno-Karabakh that are dangerous, but the ideas they carry. Many militants from Azerbaijan and our North Caucasus passed through Syria. Now they are starting to return home, or rather, they are sent there. Each such Islamist can arrange a terrorist attack, and can become the founder of a new terrorist cell. Among them are people from such groups banned in Russia as ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra, Sultan Murad Division and Firkat al-Hamza.

The latter are considered to be pro-Turkish organizations. This means that right before our eyes a new terrorist underground is beginning to form in Transcaucasia, which Ankara is capable of influencing, from where it can destabilize the situation in the North Caucasus at any moment. "Sultan" Erdogan plays dangerous games.

      Although not yet a member of the EU, even the territorial part of Turkey is located in Europe.

    Even so, since they "were on the run outside of Russia ..." then they are clearly not militants from Syria.
    They are Chechens.

    Chechens from Syria decided to return to Chechnya.
    It is a shame to suspect Putin's friend Endogan of this. Or the Aliyevs, also lifelong friends.

    -First, they notified that the losses of the security forces ... -four people ... -But anyway ... -and these losses are very great ... -And every time such big losses ... -If our security forces each time will bear such losses ... -that soon there will be no security forces ... -and some families who have lost their breadwinners will be around ... -then there is no need for war ... -with such losses ...

    Unfortunately, the Russian border in the North Caucasus cannot be considered securely closed. The detained members of Ruslan Gelayev's gang later confirmed that in 2002 they had been let through by the border guards of "independent" Georgia.

    -Well, this is how it is necessary to strike at "independent" Georgia; and not wait for them to send us another batch of bandits ... -What is Israel doing all the time; striking the Syrian territory, where this offspring begins to accumulate ...
    - Otherwise, Russia no longer has anything else to do but ... how to become like Juliet from Shakespeare's tragedy "Romeo and Juliet", where she turns to Brother Lorenzo:

    Lock the door and cry with me.
    No life! No hope! No salvation!

    - Damn ... - such a powerful militarized Russia ... "all in the siloviks" and cannot cope with some rabble ... - Well, let's ask Israel for help; we will hire their special services ... -Let them help us ... -No, well, just no words ...

        - It's a good showdown ... - two Russian special forces (as always ... - Russians !!!) were killed and one was seriously wounded ... - Again three Russian families ... - were left without breadwinners ...
        - Personally, it makes no difference to me ... what kind of showdowns take place in a religious-feudal limitrophy, where medieval laws reign ... -Russia regularly pays a very generous tribute to this limitrophy with the connivance of our guarantor ... - and this is quite enough ... -Why the Russian people must also give their lives, providing support for the throne to the head of this limitrophy ??? - Isn't it too bold and blasphemous ???

          because the Russian people, due to their infantilism and irresponsibility, have completely withdrawn themselves from government. In no country with developed democracy would a Chechen precedent with a country within a country be possible.

            -Ha ... - Is he even there ... - "Russian people" ??? -Yes, it's enough just to watch the TV show Male / Female, which is hosted by Gordon ... - personally, I watched it once or twice ... - But this is enough to start doubting ... ... in ... - Okay ... - I won't say ... - what "you can start to doubt" ...
            -This transfer itself ... is just a weak projection of the wretchedness and degradation of the "Russian people" on the realities of our life ... -So, even without this transfer, it has long been clear that under the oligarchs it is the Russians who cannot survive ...
            - So "self-removal from government" ... - "due to its infantilism" ... is an illusion ... - Ie. - self-elimination ... - this is the form of government ... - And it is the Russian people who choose "such management" ... - Anyone can govern the state; but the Russian people choose what is more disgusting and destructive ... for themselves ...
            - After all, there was a wonderful promising socialist state ... is the USSR ...
            - -So why did the Russian people not withdraw themselves during the overthrow of socialist rule ??? - After all, then the Russian people would not support all these scoundrels, traitors and criminals ... - and nothing would have burned out ...
            - After all, the territory of the USSR was not occupied by an enemy army, which overthrew the government of the USSR and established the power of criminals and thieves ... -It was all supported by the Russian people ... -What is it ???
            - It turns out that the Russian people ... is ... - and again personally I will not say anything ... - It just becomes scary ... - for our "society of self-destruction" ...

            There are enough precedents:

            Flanders, Wallonia, Gibraltar, Guernsey, Jersey, Isle of Wight, Northern Ireland, Ireland, Scotland, Shetland Islands, Wales, Yorkshire, Bavaria, East Frisia, Faroe Islands, Basque Country, Catalonia, Valencia, Balearic Islands, Galissian Republic, Andalusia, Aragon, Lombardy, South Tyrol, Venice, Sardinia, Sicily, Northern Cyprus, Upper Silesia ...

              Do not confuse God's gift with scrambled eggs, in these countries you listed there were no wars for independence in the 20th century, only Ireland, but they were exhausted by the famine and forceful actions, when the country was empty, they gave "in English" controlled independence, and then dividing it into parts ... It is necessary to sort out each one, and not everything is so smooth ... The Chechen version of a completely different salting, as the "Mnogohodovochka" says ...

                This is about a precedent, not about the identity of the Chechen scenario.
                And there are many such precedents.
                Of course, not everywhere there were hostilities that could be called wars, but still there were enough casualties.
                For example, the separatist organization "Front for National Liberation of Corsica" (FLNC), with arms in hand for many years tried to achieve autonomy of the region from France and a special status of the territory.
                The Basque separatist group ETA also killed more than 800 people, etc.

                Chechen version of a completely different salting

                Moreover, if we compare it with the Chechen precedent, one cannot but take into account that the conflict was actively heated up by forces from outside. Starting with the financing of this conflict by Western intelligence services, as well as the direct participation of foreign military formations in it.

                If Russia, or some other country (China .. etc.) begins to actively participate in supporting separatism in the precedents I have indicated, then there will be nothing "worse" than Chechnya.

    But what about the destruction of terrorists outside of Russia? After all, this was how our authorities justified such costs and losses. Why then are we in Syria? Why are our soldiers dying there? What are we doing there then? Or have we forgotten everything and everything? Really, not people, but .....))). It’s easier for you to live like that, I closed my eyes and don’t care, I’m in the house.

      It was a cover to help "friend" Assad. But the gnome managed to get away with it too, being late with the help for 2-3 years. Now Assad cannot be helped by anything, as soon as the Russian Federation leaves the corpse.

        He always chews snot, a kind of on-screen macho. They were hyped, and our narrow-minded compatriots were led, well, the cunning ones pretend that they also bought. Not the president for them, but a fairy tale. and stir up their affairs. Am I the only one who can see it? It seems that I alone lived in Russia in the 90s and saw enough of these pontoreses and made conclusions. Like adult men, but they are being divorced like the last young heifers. You are not tired yet listen to fairy tales from our guarantor? Where are you? He just sat out that time while there was a redistribution and the rats ate fatter rats, dead, that's all. And the morophet was brought up slightly, because they already had pillars, people had nothing to lose. And these ... just started to blame and take away their property (we have Tagiryanovskie, google, if interested. By the way, after this incident, the lads worked out in a couple of years, everyone. Before that twenty years they fought with no result) The man generally broke away from reality, reminds me of an elderly, pomaded lady -coquette.

    Azerbaijan is rapidly turning from a sane partner into a state hostile to Russia.

    All that is needed is to close the border with Azerbaijan, and let these militants remain there ...
    And then, as always, there is a lot of screaming about the terrorist threat, and I fly to Baku several flights a day, the Moscow-Baku train runs once a week ...
    The authorities themselves made of Russia a "passage yard" and a den for all evil spirits from all over the former USSR.
    It has already come to an attack by Azite gang groups on police officers and calls to expel all Russians, what about ordinary people who are constantly the object of attacks and aggression by a foreign criminal octopus ...

    It is wrong to say that Russia is a bad student in the fight against terrorists, but the fact that in some issues it shows excessive restraint, a kind of tolerance, is true. For this audience, other people's lives are a commodity for which they are paid money, besides, if they succeed, they receive terrible power. This should be the starting point.
