Putin: Russia’s Syria expedition tested its army’s professionalism

In a rare public statement on Russian operations in Syria, President Vladimir Putin said on Friday: “The operations against terrorist gangs in Syria was a serous test of the professionalism of our armed forces.” This experience will be used to improve the Russian military for future service, he said during a session of the Security Council in Moscow. He went on to report that since Russia’s intervention in the Syrian civil war, “about 90 percent of the territory was liberated from terrorists” – his customary label for all Syrian rebels.

      Evil Yankee, you are wrong in every ways! I want Czar Putin to take my money because when he beat up defenseless third world country like Syria, it almost make me feel like mighty human being instead of uncivilized dumb oaf.

    Keep in spending money for world foreign policy and keep home people hungry and non free to vote . This is the winning differenze between loosing powers like venezuela iran north korea siria lebanon etc spend money in arms before having a stable rich country like usa and Europe is a loosing game . Technology freedom and democratico and beautifoul lifestyle come from the west and they arrive always late , want to steel copyrights and inventions and try to do things with out freedom to their people and so they loose , always .

    Believe the world as it is. Not the ideas in you head. Confront reality. Germans have always cast their gaze to the East. Russians know only to well from the West comes death. Do not be a dope.
