Media: Russia intends to take over the air defense of Syria in the coming months


Since the beginning of this year, the Turkish army has been conducting "unwanted bombing" in areas where Russian troops are present in Syria. The special envoy of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the SAR, Alexander Lavrentiev, said that "Russia's patience will run out at any moment," according to the Greek news resource Pentapostagma.


Lavrentyev also noted that Russia and Syria will take adequate retaliatory steps if Israeli aviation attacks continue on the central regions of the republic under the pretext of the presence of pro-Iranian forces there, and called on Israel to stop provocative actions.

The statement of the Russian diplomat speaks of Russia's intentions in the coming months to take over the air defense of the Syrian Arab Republic. The statements of the Russian military indicate that they intend to take an active part in the decision of the militarypolitical the fate of this Middle Eastern country.

Moscow intends to take control of Syrian airspace by establishing a "no-fly zone". The Russian Federation plans to resort to this step in order to prevent Israeli and Turkish fighters and combat drones from striking Syrian territory, the Greek edition is sure.

However, such an initiative could face difficulties without interaction between Moscow and Washington, which also plans to play a leading role in post-war Syria.

    Moscow intends to take control of Syrian airspace by establishing a "no-fly zone".

    Speeches about a "no-fly zone" over all of Syria have been going on since the crash of the Il-20. But it is problematic to do this with mere speeches.

    Characteristically, the "filling of the bowl" is synchronized with the agreements on economic issues. Iranian statements of their intention to join the EAEU in the near future and cooperation in a number of projects have added a certain amount of liquid to this vessel. And Erdogan, apparently, does not have time to draw out of it. But there was a great opportunity, "Aero India 2021" is a very convenient platform. Iranians think faster than Turks.
    Well, we will probably have the opportunity to test in practice how omnipotent and invulnerable the Israeli Air Force is. But something tells me that as the air defense system develops, the intensity of sorties will decrease. It's the fighter pilot's vacation season. The IDF may focus on finding equipment stolen from the military base.

    However, such an initiative could face difficulties without interaction between Moscow and Washington, which also plans to play a leading role in post-war Syria.

    Planning and playing are slightly different things. In my opinion, they have not been able to lead roles for 5 years. rather episodic and extras. Strengthening Russian air defense is unlikely to awaken "acting talent" in the US military. Flying at gunpoint is not very comfortable.

      In the event of such a development of events, Russian air defense systems in Syria will inevitably face the fate of the Armenian complexes in Karabakh. The Israelis do not give a damn about the ambitions of some A. Lavrentyev, they are busy ensuring the security of their own state and they will not be stopped by threats from anyone, even if this someone is Putin's special representative. And this is not empty bravado and ostentatious heroism - we just have no other choice. Sometime before the attack by Egyptian forces on Sinai, General Israel Tal told his soldiers: "We must win or die!" Decades have passed since then, but these words remain relevant to this day. And those who are supposed to investigate the embezzlement and something tells me that the perpetrators will be found and will be punished in accordance with the laws of the State of Israel.

          He did not deceive and did not lose even once, but died at the age of 85. His achievements in tank battle tactics are being studied all over the world.

        Life will show who has what fate.

        The Russian Ministry of Defense in general and A. Lavrentyev in particular do not care about the ambitions of some Israelis. Let them take care of the security at home.

        Sometime before the attack by Egyptian forces on Sinai, General Israel Tal told his soldiers: "We must win or die!" Decades have passed since then, but these words remain relevant to this day.

        You can push pompous speeches, by and large everyone does not care. Time will stop on the attack. I guess we should wait for the development of events. let's see what happens to the air defense, and then (say, half a year later) we will return to this conversation. Why shake in empty air?

        And those who are supposed to investigate the embezzlement and something tells me that the perpetrators will be found and will be punished in accordance with the laws of the State of Israel.

        It may very well be. I hope you can share the details? smile It is extremely curious to look at the people who have left the equipment from the military base. Something tells me that these are not nomadic Bedouins, but people who have access to the base. Or everything looks even more fun laughing

          It is clear in advance that the curvature of the earth will interfere, and the Israeli Air Force is far from a gift. I remember that after the death of the Russian Il-20 and Shoigu's statement about the supply of S-300 complexes to the Syrians, enthusiastic exclamations circulated in the Russian segment that now even small birds do not fly in the region without Moscow's permission, but what happens in reality is known to everyone

            I have nothing to do with these enthusiastic responses. request The Syrian air defense is of a focal nature, does not cover the entire territory of the country, as an integrated echeloned system is physically absent. apparently, the situation will soon begin to change. It is too early to draw conclusions. Let's see hi

    I do not think that Russia will take the Syrian sky under tight control, it makes no sense. But Russia began to slowly move towards this long ago, just until the central government becomes strong enough - this is problematic. Americans, Kurds, Turks - you can't dismiss them. As long as Israel does not particularly attack the Syrian army, Russia will turn a blind eye to attacks, and the sides have so far perfectly agreed on an acceptable level of attacks and will be able to do so for a long time. Russia understands that the existing conflict in Syria is serious and for a long time, by and large it is still in Russia's interests. The presence of a conflict, which no one except Russia can keep within the framework, only increases its weight in the world. From time to time Russia, through politicians of the second level, will hint to Israel that it is not worth it to greet. It is unlikely that Israel will stop bombing targets in Syria, it simply will not increase their intensity. Israel will always weigh what is more important at the moment - good relations with Russia or the need to attack certain Shiite targets.
    Practice shows that finding a compromise is possible.

      Back in 2015, the S-400 complex located at the Khmeimim airbase was covered. almost all of Syria, southern Turkey, Cyprus, Lebanon, the Eastern Mediterranean and even most of Israel, including Jerusalem. According to Putin, Russian air defenses will block the skies over Syria, not a single fly will fly by, and Russian interceptors will shoot down any aircraft that violates Syrian airspace.

      Well?

        1. I don't see it yet, that's why I wrote that the conflict is serious and LONG. He wrote that this is to a certain extent at the hands of Russia.
        2. It was about the POSSIBILITY of airspace control. Russia has taken the first step, sooner or later Russia will take full control of the Syrian sky, everything is moving towards this, but it may take 10 years.

          Judging by the statements of Russian officials, the Russian Federation established "full control over the Syrian sky" back in 2015. And there were more than enough opportunities to demonstrate this. But it didn't work out. And there can be only two reasons here: 1) We couldn't. 2) Didn't want to. Both are worse because if item 1 means "complete control" lied. If item 2, then someone outside the Russian Federation did not allow it.
