The war that we are losing: the successes and losses of the ICS in Syria

In 2015, Russia was involved in a military operation in Syria. For three years, the Russian military security services have achieved fantastic success in destroying the terrorist group "Islamic State", liberating most of the territory of the Arab Republic and returning peaceful life to the largest cities and populated areas. All this success, however, do not consider it inappropriate, it is a war that Russia loses, and in all senses.

The success of Russian videoconferencing in Syria 2015 - 2018

The appearance of Russian military security services in Syria was a complete surprise for local radical groups, for the terrorists "IGIL", and for the United States. It was believed that the days of Bashar Assad in power are already numbered, and Syria will become another country, over which the flag of American democracy will flutter.

With what exactly is the emergence of a group of Russian military aviation in Syria? First, Syria has always been an ally of Russia. Secondly, having lost an ally in the Middle East, Russia's position in the world would be greatly weakened, while this would lead to the strengthening of the United States. Thirdly, Russia had to demonstrate its military potential to the West, and the fight against terrorism was perfectly suited for these purposes.

  • * Black region - the forces of the terrorist grouping "Islamic State"

This is how the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic looked like on 1 November 2015. Apparently, the government troops of the Arab Republic suffered one devastating defeat after another, but since the beginning of the hostilities, the militants were under a hail of Russian bombs and missiles, and, as can be seen on the map of events, 20 November 2015 leaders of the terrorist group "Islamic The state "realized what problems the emergence of Russian attack planes, fighter jets and bombers in Syria

After only three months, 17 February 2016, Russian VCS were able to destroy several thousand IGIL fighters, thereby giving Syria hope for the liberation of the Arab republic from the terrorists.

Three months later, Russian VCS achieved phenomenal success, beginning to actively press terrorists, knocking them out of previously controlled territories and allowing the Syrian government forces to regain control in the Arab republic.

Just a year after the start of the military operation in Syria (17 in November 2016), the Russian VKS were able to maintain control over virtually the entire western territory of the Arab Republic, however, the ISIS terrorists, realizing the pitiable condition of their position, strengthened the offensive, taking control .

In May 2017, the Russian military security system was reliably entrenched in Syria, however, as can be seen on the map of the events, no significant success in the fight against terrorists was achieved, however, positive results in this were still evident.

Nevertheless, by the second anniversary of Russia's military operation in Syria, the militants began to suffer devastating defeats, which was due to the active stage of operations against terrorists and militants, the strengthening of Syrian government forces by Russian military equipment, and the banal suppression of the enemy. Under certain circumstances, Russian fighters and bombers could inflict hundreds of air strikes on the positions of terrorists and militants per day, which became devastating for them, so that peaceful life returned to Syrian cities.

In May 2018, thanks to the active support of Russian military security services, the Syrian government troops controlled most of the territory of the Arab Republic, and in July they completely regained control of the territory in the west and south, restoring control on the border with Israel and Jordan.

The return to Syria of a peaceful life was a success for the Russian military security services, and this is definitely a victory, not final, but colossal.

Defeats and failures of the military-industrial complex in Syria

Despite the fact that the Russian military security services were able to prove their greatest power, in the framework of the military operation, in addition to success, there were also serious defeats. This is not about any global events, but, nevertheless, the losses in Syria make one think about whether the presence in Russia became victorious.

Not everyone knows that during the special operation in the Syrian Arab Republic, the Russian military security services lost 14 units of military equipment:

  • The bomber Su-24 (24 November 2015 year) - shot down by a Turkish fighter;
  • The MiG-29 fighter (summer 2017) - crashed over the Mediterranean Sea;
  • Su-33 fighter (summer 2017 of the year) - crashed while landing on the deck of the Admiral Kuznetsov;
  • The bomber Su-24 (10 October 2017 year) - rolled out beyond the runway and collapsed;
  • Sturmovik Su-25 (3 February 2018 year) - shot down by terrorists;
  • Military transport aircraft An-26 (6 March 2018 year) - crashed when landing at the airbase "Khmeimim";
  • Fighter Su-30SM (3 May 2018 year) - crashed over the Mediterranean Sea;
  • Shock helicopter Ka-52 (7 May 2018 year) - the reasons are unknown.

In addition to these incidents, there are reports of helicopter losses:

  • Mi-8AMTSH;
  • Mi-8AMTSH-B;
  • 2 x Mi-35M;
  • 2 x Mi-28.

Of course, in any military conflict there are losses, but most incidents were due to technical malfunctions and errors.

In my opinion, Russia's policy is extremely mild. I remember someone angrily condemning the destruction of the Russian Su-24 bomber by a Turkish fighter (24 November 2015), someone loudly declared about the readiness to wipe out the positions of the rebels "Jebhat an Nusra" (a terrorist group whose activities are banned in Russia - approx. Aut.) in the province of Idlib, to put an end to terrorists and militants, to oust US supportive radicals who oppose Bashar Assad. None of the above was done! As they say, they started for good health, and graduated for peace.

Now Turkey has deployed its air defense systems in Syria, the United States of America announced a no-fly zone in the north of Syria with an area of ​​26 thousand square kilometers (14% of the total Syrian territory). Russia simply did not care about Russia's presence in Syria, and, most interestingly, Russia decided to negotiate with terrorists ... A superpower whose military might can destroy most of the planet is negotiating with a gang of terrorists of several thousand people !!! And this is not an invention, the head of the Russian Defense Ministry has openly stated this.

"There are heavy, viscous, complex negotiations at all levels with those who were formerly called moderate opposition, but now insurgents, with their leaders"

Sorry for the tactlessness, but what the hell can you negotiate with militants and terrorists? Terrorists and militants attacking the Russian air base "Khmeimim" with drone and holding civilians in fear.

You are probably interested in what you should do in my understanding of this situation? In reality, nothing tricky should be thought out here, but rather the methods used by the West, which are completely legal and effective. It is enough to warn the so-called. “Western allies” and Turkey that, due to the aggression of the militants, the positions of the terrorists will be attacked, warned in a few days, giving the opportunity to step back from these positions, and defeat the militants. Remember, Turkey asked Russia and Syria whether it could invade the Arab Republic? Did Washington ask if the United States, Britain and France could launch more than a hundred cruise missiles across Syria? This is called symmetrical measures, and there is nothing shameful here, especially if Russia wants to consolidate the status of a world power.

Defending Syria can be done differently, for example, by putting in the country complexes C-300, which although not modern, but perfectly suited to combat almost any air targets at distances up to 200-300 kilometers, however, for quite unknown reasons, Russia decided to make concessions to Israel, one of the countries actively cooperating in the United States, and refused to do so.

Instead of confinement ...

Despite the fact that it was thanks to Russia, militants and terrorists who almost completely seized control of Syria, it was possible to destroy what would seem to be a victory, while Russia is losing in Syria. Going to the concessions of NATO, Russia will show its weak side, and the years of military operation in this Arab republic will become only the loss of funds, people and technology, but this situation can be corrected simply by demonstrating to the world its power from the position of strength and strict policy towards terrorists, militants and their supporters.

Kostyuchenko Yuri specifically for Avia.pro.

This is an Arab country.
Here war does not happen front to front. In our civilian there were also agreements with Makhno. And to assume that, they say, Russia (in fact, Assad) we agree with a handful of militants is ridiculous. There are newcomers of the United States, wandering from Afghanistan to Egypt, then to Libya, then to Syria, and there are local clans.

The situation is certainly difficult. Faced the interests of many countries. Nobody wants to give in. Assad will not leave alone. Militants, though slowly will squeeze. Otherwise, they will quickly grow to the same amount. We need to add one more database. What a difference where units will stand, but in Syria they will bring more benefits, eliminate the illusion that the two bases have no serious military significance. Everyone must understand that Syria is our ally, we will get used to it, expand, based on the situation, and everyone else must leave. Create a blind zone over the entire territory of Syria with the help of EW, giving the Syrian troops modern weapons with which they could burn all the electronics from the enemy. And so gradually, step by step, having agreed with Turkey, to squeeze out the USA from the territory they captured.

Do you want retired people to receive a decent pension? Do you want your work not to be depreciated due to a rise in price of the dollar or a reduction in the cost of oil? Want a peaceful sky above your head and the head of your grandchildren. Then remember the simple truth: Russia should strive to be a political, economic, cultural plus. Only awareness of our needs can trigger the formation of national capital. While we are forced to think of money as a limited resource from the sale of oil, We will sit wet in the rain on the mountain of bricks and dream of our own warm house, which we can build only if someone pays for it. But we do not need anything, remember this. And we must build this house, we need it ourselves, and if we need a ruble to regulate relations between ourselves, this ruble we print ourselves. This is what we observe in the politics of our country that one part of the society that has reached a limited monetary currency resource does very little, so that a large part of the population of the country can use the resources available to us for the development of the national economy. What is happening in Syria is something small that makes the ruble more expensive, and as people are always strong in the ruling circles, who have enough of their income and are ready to hand over to the enemy everything that our military does for us.

Given the poverty in which the pensioners of Russia are and complete disintegration of power, it is no longer necessary to talk about any victories, including the Great Patriotic War.

We need to talk about Victories! About any victories, about labor, military, scientific, sports. More positive in the media, and then we have all the channels and newspapers are filled with bullshit.

The Fund ... and about the Second World War it’s you in vain ... history and memory is a very necessary thing, my friend. And you are the "foundation" - without memory

Ameram is deeply at you, who knew who there was. But with the rest is not so simple. These imaginary friends when you turn your back on them. This is not our war
The struggle for resources and only
And look at how many airfields the Jews have and the Jordanians in the same place are koolitsy in the sea, if they go together a little will not seem

Yes, please forget about the "friends" ... there is simply no such thing in the world of traffickers ... you need to take care of your interests and raise the living standards of people ... and our government just scored our people, despite the fact that our country is the richest in world, and people live in poverty ... do not you think this strange?

I do not share the position of the author in the article! The very fact that there is a strong presence of the Russian Navy's forces in the Mediterranean and the military-technical cooperation in Syria, and then the legitimate one, is a great victory! When NATO troops approached the borders of Russia and the US deployed their anti-missile defense system in eastern Europe, in the event of a conflict, these Russian military forces will be in the rear of the Euro-pean countries of NATO. And this is not a joke! With terrorists will cope. But here the scores go on the non-neutralization of NATO. I'm convinced of this !!!

Oh, how you want to look like a guru among the plebeians! Surprisingly, the author is an expert in many areas of our life (when reading his numerous studies). And why such a HUMANITUDE is not an adviser to the president of our country, although why only ours? It's time to move forward in the world experts! But, that's only natural modesty does not allow! Therefore, he writes articles at the village newspaper level.

The translation of the discussion into the plane of personal bites offends the speaker

In the style of modern German "researchers" of the results of the Second World War. According to them, both the Stalingrad and the Kursk battle, the Nazis won, but retreated from purely tactical and strategic considerations. And the author of the short article just decided to go on the topic on quite absurd and illogical conclusions. You would, dear and disrespectful in the Ukrainian media to speak out - there are people like you like and appreciate. And we in the Navy just talk about such people - asshole. And still: in such a protracted conflict, the loss of personnel and aircraft is negligible. Believe the veteran of the Navy with 25-year experience. It is immediately evident that the author is simply a brave warrior. In the army, if he served, he probably ate on the prod.slade.

PF veteran with 25 summer experience under the nickname 'Inquisitor' is sitting on the garbage resource and that it proves to someone. About the Ukrainian media smiled at someone vata in the head always now the word 'Ukraine' spin?

How many people are lost? you have to check how many flights are lost. Secondly bombing the guys, it hardly colossal win.

To the point

Similar to your belief. Including the author.

Although I did not serve in the army, I share your position.

To know who won or lost, you need to know what goals the participants in the conflict have. I do not think that everything is so simple: the Americans want to create in the area of ​​their responsibility Kurdistan (Kurds in the world at least 40 million). They want to negotiate on this with Turkey, which is against Russia, which helped the Kurds. Syria "as it was" will not be able to be restored.

And the Jew Sholom-Pukish, the Jew-dwarf and the self-appointed, not for the protection of Syria or Russian interests there Russian soldiers is ruined. This scum covers the borders of the Jewish settlement of Israel from Igil and Iran. Not for nothing did this scum of the Yid-dwarfish in 2001 year swear allegiance to the Yid Zion in the Yiddish smelly wall of weeping. Rus more than 20 years of moaning under the yoke of Yiddish, and the author of the article laments about Syria. It is necessary to worry for one's own people and strive to overthrow the Jewish yoke in Russia.

And the malice that, then the malice of lope, would have chewed off itself chego but would cool down a bit.

now run to the church a criminal and ask the Jew Jesus for forgiveness. and then he will punish you. you will die of alcoholism with your mother who gave birth to such a fascist. and I will ask my god for you to do it ......

Rosia does not groan under yoke, but simply you, not very adequate, unhealthy, mentally ill person, you see everywhere a threat. The persecution mania works like this: an apparent threat from all sides, enemies everywhere: Jews, pindos, Tatars, chocks. Chinese and there is no number for them. Poor little mother Russia: surrounded by enemies. You're a moron on the map look! How can you surround more than you? And about the enemies around: then Israel is not around with friends either.

I support and in general at us that not one friend a dud

The author's conclusions about how to proceed are simply naive in their obviousness, since they do not take into account many factors and factors that are hidden at the level of official negotiations and agreements.

As always, he started for health, and finished for the peace, the war is lost, the guard! (hat), and then on 10 sheets - the war won! Actually combat losses 2 (two) aircraft. And in peaceful conditions, planes are constantly beating (unfortunately). And not only at us.
And if you know how to win in a global confrontation - run for president!

All of your Kostyuchenko runs smoothly, and negotiations should be conducted. remember the Caribbean crisis. and Kennedy shot their bastards, but even 1 city did not give under bombs.
