Briefing of the chief of the Main operations Directorate of the General staff of armed forces Colonel-General Rudskoy on the military situation in Syria and the Mosul area.
After the occupation of the airbase, dam and connection forces them to occupy, on the agenda will be the promotion along the southern shore of the Euphrates, with the goal the complete environment of Raqqa and its subsequent storm, which could begin in mid-late April, with upbeat developments in the mid-to-late may, if the Caliphate will be able to stretch on the South shore.
It appears that at this stage in U.S. relations will be dominated by confrontational rhetoric, in the presence of situational contacts like the meeting in Munich at the security Conference or the meeting of chiefs of General Staffs of Russia, USA and Turkey in Antalya. The participation of both countries in the Syrian war somehow forcing them to contact each other, although as the events in the area of Raqqa, in addition to the General aims of the war with the Caliphate, the rest of the goals are very different.The same goes for Ukraine, where US demands to give the Donbass and Crimea to the Kiev regime, regarded by the Kremlin as an unacceptable.
Of course at this stage the fighting in North Hama not only hinder the development of the offensive of the SAA to the East of Aleppo, but also make it difficult to implement more ambitious plans related to the promotion, in Raqqa province, where the United States with the Kurds gradually develop success from Tabqa, continuing to bend the line on the environment of the capital of the Caliphate.
Overall, the rebels still possess the operational initiative and the consequences of the breakthrough of the front in Northern Hama are too early to see, but appropriate reserves in Maan district and to the North of the provincial capital have entered into and at once slowed the militants ‘ advance. The active work of the Russian Air force and the Syrian air force, also contributes to inhibition of the attack of the enemy. Apparently it will take another few days to stabilize the front of Hama to the North and begin to eliminate the consequences.
There was video of the murder Boronenkov caught by one of the security cameras.
This is the war that will run regardless of the fact, whether you like it or not. This is not a war that will be handsome, chivalrous and sublimely romantic – it will be a long bloody and dirty work that needs to be done.
