The number of Russian troops killed in combat in Syria reached 112 as per a member of the Russian State Duma, the lower house of the Federal Assembly of Russia.
Andrey Krasov, the First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Defense Committee, was quoted saying during a meeting devoted to military medicine.
Russian President Vladimir Putin repeatedly confirmed that ‘Russian troops are combatting terror in Syria to avoid needing to combat it on the streets of Moscow and St. Petersberg’.
Mr. Putin is totally right; a large number of the terrorists killed and arrested in Syria hail from Central Asian countries, some of which are from republics of the Russian Federation and are radicalized by the enemy of Islam and second top leader in NATO the Turkish Madman Erdogan and his anti-Islamic Muslim Brotherhood international organization.
Russia joined the fight against ISIS and other US-sponsored Al-Qaeda affiliated groups in Syria upon an official request from the Syrian government in September 2015, the Syrian leadership had to resort to heavyweight military powers for help after the number of suicide terrorists brought into Syria through its borders with all neighboring countries have reached almost 3 times the number of the active Syrian armed forces. Heavily armed, highly trained, equipped with the latest military gears, and driving hundreds of machineguns-mounted brand new Toyota SUVs across open deserts and under the protection of the US air forces.
John Kerry, Biden’s guy on climate and the US secretary of state at the time confirmed in a leaked audio recording that the USA wanted ‘ISIS to march to Damascus to pressure the Syrian leadership into concessions and instead the Syrian President brought the Russians in and now it’s a different story’; he added: ‘we are illegally in Syria unlike the Russians’.
Russian personnel losses in Syria comprise of all ranks from soldiers to a major general and from all divisions from reconnaissance to pilots to even members of the Alexandrov military music ensemble. Russian diplomats also suffered losses and harassment like the Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov who was killed by a Muslim Brotherhood fanatic and the Russian Ambassador to Qatar who was beaten up by Qatari customs officials and suffered broken bones. Their sacrifices protecting Syria, Russia, and the rest of humanity will not be forgotten and will continue to light the path towards victory against evil all over the world.
