Russia deprives militants' tanks of the course before the offensive of the Syrian army


Curious things are happening now in Syria. The seemingly subdued armed conflict threatens to flare up again with even greater force. What is this, local squabbles, preparation of the Syrians for a military revenge in the north of the country with the Turks, or an echo of another, more distant war?


So, three days ago, in the province of Aleppo, which is under the control of pro-Turkish militants, there was a powerful missile strike from the territory of government forces and their allies. As a result were destroyed Refineries, storage facilities with oil products and tank trucks loaded with them. This kind of "logistics center" suffered enormous damage, killing dozens of militants. We deliberately put it in quotation marks, because through such points various extremist groups are exporting oil and its refined products stolen from the Syrian people to neighboring Turkey. They leave some for their own terrorist needs, the rest goes as illegal income to the Turkish side.

The next thing is the most interesting. According to some reports, this "logistics center" was destroyed by the strike of the 9K79-1 "Tochka-U" OTRK, which is in service with the Syrian government forces. But according to other sources, it was blown to shreds by the Russian Iskander-M OTRK, striking from the territory of the Khmeimim airbase in Latakia from a distance of 250 kilometers. The Sohr news agency reports that a reconnaissance drone circled in the sky shortly before the attack. If it really was Russian, then the strike scheme looked like this: the intelligence from the UAV was transmitted to the 9S920 information preparation point (PPI), which calculated the flight mission for the missile, then the signal was sent to the 9S552 command and staff vehicles (KShM), division commanders and batteries and finally the launcher. And after a while, the "logistics center" briefly turned into a fiery hell.


The intrigue is who really struck this blow, the Syrians or the Russians. The motives of the government army are clear: Damascus is eager to regain control of the Turkish-occupied territories of Aleppo and northern Idlib, knocking out the terrorists from there. The Syrian army has been preparing for revenge for a year now, gradually pulling its forces to the line of demarcation. The destruction of an oil refinery and warehouses with fuels and lubricants fits well into this scheme. The pro-Turkish militants are armed with a heavy technique, in particular, the T-55 and BMP-1 tanks. They also have tracked ACV-15 armored personnel carriers and Turkish-made M113 armored personnel carriers, apparently carefully provided by sponsors from Ankara. Since there is no fuel, then there will be nothing to fill them with. It is possible that Damascus could launch a military operation in the foreseeable future.

But there is one more explanation that fits well with the use of Iskander-M OTRK from Khmeimim. No, no one is going to prove anything to Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and other doubters. It is quite possible that this is how Moscow conveyed "warm greetings" directly to Ankara. Let's take a look at the general geopolitical context. Turkey actively helped Azerbaijan in just a month and a half to forcefully cut the "Gordian knot" of the long-standing territorial conflict with Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh. In return, Ankara received direct land access to the Caspian and further, to the region of Central Asia, where it can directly compete with the interests of Russia. But Turkish ambitions are not limited to this.

President Erdogan has also become very active in the Ukrainian direction. In particular, Ankara seeks to squeeze the maximum out of Kiev in the field of aviation technology, jointly creating engines, explained Haluk Bayraktar, the executive director of the Turkish company Baykar:

It can be realized through the creation of a joint Turkish-Ukrainian enterprise for the production of aircraft engines. By joining forces, we can truly have the best turboprop and turbojet engines in the world.

Baykar Makina and Ukrspetsexport have agreed to establish a joint venture "Black Sea Shield", which is supposed to produce Bayraktar UAVs for the needs of Nezalezhny itself and for export. There are plans to develop a joint heavy drone with a take-off weight of 5,5 tons and an AI-25TL turbojet engine produced by the Ivchenko-Progress Zaporozhye enterprise. In other words, Ankara hopes to bypass Western restrictions at the expense of Ukrainian technologies. In addition to future joint projects, Kiev purchased a trial batch of 2018 Turkish Bayraktars with 6 missiles back in 200. At the end of 2020, the Ukrainian Armed Forces purchased 12 more complexes with 4 shock drones in each. Obviously, Ukraine admired their capabilities demonstrated in Nagorno-Karabakh. In addition, Turkey has transferred technology to Independent to build corvettes for its navy, which is to build up its capabilities in the Black Sea basin.

All this activity of Ankara falls on the current escalation of the conflict in Donbass, about which we in detail told earlier. It is highly likely that Kiev may try to repeat the "Karabakh scenario" against the DPR and LPR, using Turkish UAVs against the armored vehicles of the People's Militia of both unrecognized republics. Also in the press, you can find a mention that Turkish military experts advise the Ukrainian military on options for conducting an operation against Donbass.

All this cannot suit Moscow, which acts as a defender of Donetsk and Lugansk. In this context, the Iskander-M missile strike on pro-Turkish militants in Syria may be a hint that Russia will answer Turkey for its participation in the events in the Donbas with an offensive by the government army in northern Idlib. At the same time, the Turkish pocket was slightly hit. In theory, something similar should have been done during the war in Nagorno-Karabakh. But better late than never.

    There are several. weeks ago, a major offensive against IS was announced. And silence ... What happened and how.
    Will this offensive start at all? ((((
    Although this defeat of oil tankers could be presented as another defeat of the Turkish smuggling of Syrian oil or the greed of the Americans for this oil. Who in the end can check all this. Believe in everything (((
    Russia would have had to answer for a long time. How many reasons were there from the first downed Russian attack aircraft by the Turks. They look formidable, in fact?

                    Here's why in the USSR in the Second World War there were 5 million prisoners from the Germans from the Red Army.
                    And how is the Russian Federation now different from the USSR of those times.

                    From this, the Second World War really becomes a Great Victory. Defeat the enemy in whom you were the second or the first but the only one.
                    And the price is 27 million. But who was counting?

                      Here's why in the USSR in the Second World War there were 5 million prisoners from the Germans from the Red Army.

                      This is the result of the first strike. The enemy was strong, trained, coordinated, experienced. The more valuable is the victory. They twisted the neck of the beast, but did not lie down and spread their legs like the whole of Europe.

                      And how is the Russian Federation now different from the USSR of those times.

                      Advanced weaponry. Nuclear, hypersonic.

                      The States broke Japan one-on-one during VM2.

                      The USSR fought the Kwantung Army in 2 weeks. The Americans, even with a nuclear bomb, could not do this. By the way, why don't you remember Pearl Harbor? Can't the owners put pressure on a sore corn?

                      The USSR, having only Germany against itself, which had TWO fronts and only with the support of the Allies was able to win ... Victory With All Its Allies.

                      Stop lying. The USSR had all of Europe. And the second front of the ally was opened only when the job was done and it was time to disassemble the prizes. Prior to that, they simulated violent activity somewhere in Africa.

                      From this, the Second World War really becomes a Great Victory. Defeat the enemy in whom you were the second or the first but the only one.

                      You would not open your mouth on this score sad

                      And the price is 27 million. But who was counting?

                      The losses of the army are approximately equal. 27 million is the result of genocide and the destruction of civilians. And nobody forgot that. All sorts of mongrels can yelp and conduct parades of legionnaires and other fascist evil spirits. They are no strangers to licking a forged German boot. But we must not forget that when we go down the mountain we will "count" with a red-hot iron. Russians always come back and give what they deserve.

                        The Germans had TWO fronts in the Second World War. And compare not approximately equal combat losses (the Germans carried them on TWO fronts), but the losses in the Second World War of 27 million of the USSR against their population losses.
                        And the main thing is how they live now. And how many Russians are RUNNING to them for CITIZENSHIP now.

                        What do you want to achieve by such a comparison? Prove that the USSR did not destroy the civilian population in concentration camps and gas chambers? So this is not news.
                        Surely the Estonian hangers-on would have acted differently, but we have a different morality.

                        200 people, if anything, take this rabble for yourself. Only they will not stay on your farm, this is just a staging post.

                        In 2020, 773 people received Estonian citizenship, of which almost 500 had undetermined citizenship and just over 200 were former Russian citizens.

                        I have no idea. Why should I count from? How many Germans have come to see you? I mean, not an overseer, but live? How many of them did your citizenship get?

                      It's easier to calculate how many Finns live on their own. They were under the Swedes for centuries, then in the Russian Empire. If you think that independence is a guaranteed path to wealth and prosperity, then what .... as soon as you left the USSR, you rushed to the EU? Your average salary has always depended on the generosity of the metropolis. You yourself are not capable of anything. They used to hang around the neck of Russia and Belarus, now in Germany, Finland and others.
                      Abkhazia "with us" lives better than Haiti with the Americans and probably already better than Ukraine and Europe (if not yet, then it will not be long to wait).
                      It is more appropriate to compare Abkhazia with Georgia. By the way, they have also been with you for a long time.

                      Bonfires were pungently smoking around the tents. The soldiers patched up their clothes, went down the slippery precipice to the river - to wash. The breech shoes of everyone fell apart to hell - it's good who got bast shoes with onuchi, others wrapped their feet in rags. Here, and without a war, by November, half of the people will lie down. The horsemen sometimes brought the Chukhonts, the tongue, on the lasso. They surrounded him, asked him in Russian and Tatar - how do they live here? The Chukhontsy people were stupid - they only blinked their cow's eyelashes. They were taken to the tent to Alexei Brovkin for interrogation. Such languages ​​were rarely released - they were tied up, sent to the train, sold for three quarters, - other, very healthy, and more expensive - to the storekeepers, and these were resold to Novgorod, where the clerks of the military suppliers were sitting.
