VCS of Russia in Syria


The success of Russian VCS: Syria now and a year ago

Specialists described how Syria has changed over the past year with the support of Russian VCS.

Despite the fact that the West continues to reproach Russia for helping the Syrian government forces and has achieved only minor success in its three years of presence in Syria, analysts decided to tell how the situation in this country has changed in just a year.

As you can see on the map, exactly one quarter of the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic was located exactly one year ago (12 June 2017 year - ed.) Under the control of terrorists of the Islamic State group (IGIL, a terrorist group officially banned in Russia - ed.) Republic. In addition to terrorists, militants opposed to Bashar Assad's power in this country created serious problems and, of course, the United States of America regularly bombed the government troops of this country.

Already 12 September 2017, thanks to the active support of Russian military security services, the influence of terrorists and militants has significantly decreased. The front moved to the borders of neighboring states, and the army of Bashar Assad gradually began to liberate the territory of Syria.

By the end of 2017 (31 December 2017 year - ed.), Russian VCS bombed the positions of militants and terrorists all over the world, and serious provocations were made against the Russian military, in particular, it was about the fact that Russia and Syria They used prohibited weapons (cluster bombs, phosphorous bombs, bombs with poisonous substances, etc.). According to analysts, such a scenario was clearly at variance with the plans of the established Western coalition, and an active campaign against Russia's presence in this country began.

Nevertheless, 12 April 2018, the Syrian government troops, with the direct support of Russian military security services, have almost completely liberated the suburbs of Damascus, held by militants and terrorists for several years. Moreover, Russia simply closed Syria's airspace with its air defense systems and put anti-aircraft missile and gun complexes "Pantsir-S" into the arsenal of the Arab Republic, which effectively repelled the attacks of Israel, the US and the Western coalition.

According to data for 12 June 2018, Syrian government troops control most of the territory of the Arab Republic, rapidly destroying the terrorists of "IGIL" and militants.

"Without the intervention of Russian military security services, Syria is unlikely to have existed in a form that we once knew. Russian combat aircraft razed to the ground the enemy and continues to provide Bashar Assad with all the necessary assistance. It is likely that by the end of the year Syria will restore its southern borders, and completely eliminate the terrorists of the "Islamic state" on its territory ", - said the analyst
