Since it’s February 23, the Fatherland’s Defender Day, it would be appropriate to analyze the initial impact of Russia’s forces in Syria. First of all, Russian aircraft have been in combat for almost five months and secondly, the Syrian campaign is on the threshold of a pause largely thanks to the Russian forces.
On Sunday, February 21, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry reached a preliminary agreement on a ceasefire in Syria. Commenting on their phone discussions, Kerry said that “the ceasefire is now closer than ever.” The US State Department later disseminated a joint statement which states that Moscow and Washington offered the warring parties in Syria to stop fighting on February 27 at midnight (Damascus time). This ceasefire does not extend to ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra, and other organizations designated as terrorist by the UN. The statement emphasizes that Russian and Syrian aircraft will stop attacking Syrian opposition during the ceasefire.

To all who predict the inevitable war, wherever your mind thinks it will transpire:
It is a requirement of that prediction to tell us what the Order of Battle shall be.
For instance, China attacked by the US.
Or, Turkey and US/NATO/Arabs with oil attacking Russia.
Or, Turkey and the nazis of Ukraine attacking Russia.
Or, some Israeli (Zio-whatever you want) false flag attack that results in attacking Russia.

In an interview with RT, Russian military analyst Alexander Zhilin said that US media allegations that Russia is pursuing its own interests in Syria are "absolute nonsense", given that Moscow "cooperates there with the legitimately elected president."

This comment was chosen by Mod HS from the post “Turkey’s Gates To Europe”. The moderator believes this comment is interesting because it asks where did it all go wrong for the US? Looking back it seems all their best laid plans have not gone the way they hoped and they are left floundering.

With respect to the S-400, much has been written about it and I won't rehash it all here. How about we simply say that its detection range comes to the extent 600km and that its "engagement vault" has a 400km span and a 56km tallness. Actually, the S-400+Pantsir-S2 combo is the thing that at present ensures the city of Moscow! As it were, the Russians have truly sent in Syria the most impressive air protection capabilities on the planet. For the "under the hood" specs of the SU-35S please see here. All that really matters is this: both as far as power(engine power , reach and radar power) and capability (amount and nature of weapons) the SU-35S is presently the most advanced military flying machine on the planet. It is difficult to know what the Russians know, be that as it may, on the off chance that I may use that similarity, when you see a animal take up a run of a combat position you can accept that it has seen something which it is presently responding to. What is clear to me is that the Russians have as of late significantly expanded their qualitative abilities and on the off chance that I consolidate this expansion is capacities with the sort of dialect I get notification from Russian authorities consistently I can just reason this is in response to Turkey's moves. I know, this is not really weighty, and I am not asserting that I came up with something new or unique here, all I am stating that what Russia does (deploying some to a great degree propelled systems) appears to authenticate what she says (that Turkey is planning something naughty and that the West might need to do something to stop this).
The story of refugees flocking into Europe, and the avalanche of repercussions that followed, remains to be a conundrum that many involved individuals, including some seasoned analysts, are at pains to unravel.
Any denial that those refugees had brought with them very bad elements is a denial of a truth that is so loud and clear. And when some highly competent authors wrote about this and were attacked and called Fascists and racists, those who made those accusations must be living in a dungeon that lives by rules that do not exist anywhere on this planet. Not that I wish any harm to anyone, but I would just wonder what would those critics do or say if it was their own sisters, girlfriends, daughters and mothers getting ganged raped in the streets!
