Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria covered a gathering of militants from the former republics of the USSR

Over the past decade, the territory of the SAR has become a center of attraction for Islamists from all over Eurasia. A special niche in this jihadist "international" is occupied by immigrants from the former republics of the USSR.

On February 26, 2021, intelligence officers identified a gathering of such militants in the northeast of the Syrian province of Latakia. After that, the Russian Aerospace Forces rushed to cover the gathering of the irreconcilable, which took place at one of their bases in the hilly terrain near Kban.

Russian aviation launched a series of missile and bomb strikes against militants of the Islamic Party of Turkestan (a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation). This large bandit formation is an association of radicals from all over Central Asia, especially there are many immigrants from Uzbekistan. All of them are striving to "revive the great caliphate," which will also include the North Caucasus and the Volga region.

The presented footage shows how Russian ammunition hit the militants' base, destroying manpower and fortifications. A barracks, a warehouse, a security post and other structures at the indicated object came under fire.

      Why are the former then, sure that there can be no real ones ???
      Everyone apparently sees what he wants. Or what is profitable, indicated or paid - mark the necessary. Oh, I forgot the most important thing, "gave the order."
      The USSR has long since sunk into oblivion, but some people are apparently still scared at the thought.
      One can suspect, and at the same time accuse all these "former republics of the USSR" of terrorism and its all kinds of support. The emphasis is on the USSR, and not on all kinds of democratic changes in these very "former republics of the USSR", which have become some kind of independent states, for thirty years in a row. Do not forget that the "former" RSFSR is also one of the former republics of that very axis of evil - the USSR, which means that the stigma is exactly the same as that of all the other "former republics of the USSR." Something like this. Someone really wanted to throw poop in the direction of the killed lion, and at the same time put him on the same bench with jihadists and other radicals, as it was aptly noted - terrorist organizations banned in the Russian Federation.

    Well, maybe some of their "fathers-commanders" are striving for something, while the rest, drugged by the mullahs, simply want to eat! but they don't know how to shoot anything and they don't have enough brains!

      At first glance, one of the ways that promise to make money quickly.
      I don't think that some Uzbek agrarian will leave his farm and go to Syria to fight for a distant ideal, he has something to do at home. But those who have nothing, find mentors and then in a spiral. Excess free time, as a factor leading to radilism, just like in other "rainbow" and seemingly humane currents.

    What difference does it make to the “former” or the “present”, the main thing is that the “light” is bigger and hotter!
