In Syria on Friday for one day several hundred military men were killed. Data on the number of deaths varies. According to one, more than 600 Russian military (military contractors allegedly from PMC) were killed, according to others - more than 200. To date, it has been possible to gather, by the grains, quite a large amount of information about the events and consequences of direct fire contact between the Russian military and the American army. The loss of the coalition forces, according to recent reports, as a result of the conflict there.

What was the meaning of the attack on the position of the Kurds in the Euphrates area?.

Most likely, the main target of the attack of mixed Russian-Assad units was the oil-bearing region in the South-West of Syria, to which Russia has long been interested. The fact is that, despite the fact that Assad and the Kremlin together with Iran control about 40-50% of the territory of Syria, they have no economic opportunity to compensate for the costs of the war, and most importantly - there is no resources to restore the completely destroyed territory, which they control. Thus, the Kremlin had an idea to take oil fields in 80 kilometers from Dair-ez-Zaur, where, possibly, in the future, Rosneft and Gazprom will be able to deploy their activities. However, just a few days before the Russian military moved into this area, the territory was taken under the control of the Syrian opposition, which is part of the antiterrorist coalition with the US military. In the orders of the forces of the democratic Syrian opposition there were also American military advisers, including on the front line.

Nevertheless, the Kremlin decided to "probe the area" and, in case of weak opposition, to seize the territory. The operation was prepared first demonstratively, and after the bridge across the Euphrates, initiated by the Russian military, was also demonstratively destroyed, the accumulation of large forces began for the offensive.

How the operation of the Russian troops in Syria developed General Hassan, commander of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic forces in this region, points to the place on the map east of the city of Dair Alzour, 80 kilometers southeast of here, where, he said , tanks and artillery supporting the regime of President Bashar al-Assad began on Wednesday evening advancement to the headquarters occupied by his forces and advisers from the US special operations forces (Hassan, like some other high-ranking Kurdish commanders, not the Nazis flushes its full name).

According to Hasan, he received intelligence data on the preparation of an offensive on the part of the formations supporting the regime. At 21:30 on Wednesday, about half an hour before the offensive began, he called the Russian communications officer in Dair Alzour, with whom he maintains contact, in the hope that he will be able to stop this operation. "We said that there is a certain movement and that we would not want to attack the participants of these actions. They (the Russians) did not accept our offer, denied everything and said that nothing happens, "said Hasan through an interpreter. He talked with several correspondents who came here on Thursday, along with Major-General James Jarrard, who oversees the operations of the US Special Operations Forces in Syria and Iraq.

American officers undertook a similar attempt to prevent collisions. As emphasized in the Pentagon's statement on Thursday, "the coalition's representatives kept in touch with their Russian counterparts before, during and after" the offensive. "The Russian military assured the representatives of the coalition that they will not attack the coalition forces located nearby," it was said in this statement.

According to Hasan, the attack began around 22:00, and the supporters of the formation regime began to move forward under the cover of volleys of tank and artillery pieces, whose shells were torn about 450 meters from the positions occupied by the Democratic forces of Syria and the American soldiers.

In all, presumably, the attack was originally attended by one battalion-tactical group, which included more than 10 tanks and about three dozen units of other armored vehicles. After the US military withdrew from the advanced positions, the Russians decided to develop the offensive and put into operation the second - a reserve battalion-tactical group, the exact number of which is unknown.

The US Air Force responded to this threat with devastating blows, originally high-precision artillery and, judging by eyewitness assessment, HIMARS were used. High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, pron. Haymars - American high-mobility missile-artillery system of operational-tactical designation). These are missiles that can fly up to 200 km in 5 minutes and destroy in one volley up to 50 targets with high-precision ammunition. Most likely, it was with the help of this system that Russian artillery batteries of cover were destroyed, and drones were used only for target designation of fire. After the destruction of the enemy's artillery, as well as the operational order of the Russians and Assadites, a blow was struck at the rear units, which were actually destroyed on the march by the second BTG.

In parallel, the EW system was operating, completely suppressed communication in the operational order, which explains why it was possible to obtain a transcript of negotiations of rear groups. The air was controlled, most likely, by two pairs (as usual) of the F22 Raptor, which tracked the possible appearance of Russian aviation in the given area.

According to Hasan, in the midst of this bloody massacre, he was again telephoned by a Russian liaison officer and asked him to stop fighting for the time being in order to take the dead and wounded - during the offensive that he denied. The Kurdish commander saw this as treachery. "We do not trust Russians anymore," said Hasan. And when one of the reporters noted the paradox of the situation - the Russian officer first denies the attack, and then asks for a cease-fire, - Hasan remarked: "It's funny that the superpower does not know what its forces are doing on the ground".

Approximately two hours after the counterstrikes, 80% of all the forces of Russians and Assadites were destroyed. Now began the "flea hunting" - using the "anti-guerrilla" AC130 and two pairs of attack helicopters, the Americans under cover of F22 finally cleared the area of ??the enemy offensive.

Total losses of the Russian Federation and Assad amounted to 90% of all equipment and 70-80% of the manpower. The US military withdrew from the fight, in all likelihood, lossless. The whole operation lasted about six hours.

Why do the data on the losses of Russians vary?.

The main reason is complete secrecy of information from the beginning of the operation by the Russian army and until its completion. In addition, there were two battalion-tactical groups. Probably, in the first (on the contact line) and killed 217 Russians (mercenaries from PMCs). The second group was broken up on the march (at least three companies of Russians). Hence the difference in the estimate - from 217 to 640 Russian military. It must be said that in reality the coalition forces completely destroyed not only the advanced grouping, but also the artillery support group, as well as the rear grouping, including the operational headquarters commanding the offensive.

What is PWC "Wagner" and why do they write that they died only?.

"Wagner" is the camouflage name of the most efficient Russian units in Syria, the so-called "themnames". This is a group of assault special forces, who before that fought actively in Ukraine, and now in Syria. Before the offensive, the Russian military from these units hand over their passports, military tickets and change into the uniform of the troops of Assad. In fact, they are all - regular Russian military contractors. The coalition knows this very well and monitors their movement constantly.

What are the consequences of this operation for the Kremlin and the coalition?.

It must be said that the complete destruction by the American forces in Syria of the Russian military grouping in the first hours caused a shock both at the headquarters of Russian troops in Syria and in the Kremlin afterwards. It was unexpected not only that the Americans responded to the Kremlin's challenge in the oil-bearing region of Syria, but also the power with which they did it. It is estimated that Russian units destroyed in southern Syria accounted for about 20% of all Russian assault forces. They were destroyed in a few hours. A few hours later, the American side announced from official sources that it had destroyed Assad's forces during their attack on the positions of the coalition. She also said that she knew nothing about any "Russian izmytamnah" in the area. A day later on two planes to Russia was delivered about 150 wounded Russians. Some of the wounded were left in the territory of Russian airbases in Syria.

The Kremlin refrained from a coherent response, expressing only "deep concern" about the situation in the south of Syria. Most likely, in the short term, Russia will refrain from carrying out any operations in the direction of the coalition forces, having received a brutal lesson. According to experts, Russia in the event of a conflict with the coalition may lose all its bases in Syria within three days.

A day after the events in the area of ??Dair Alzour began an active operation of the Israeli army in the region of Damascus. Having discovered in its airspace a UAV of Iranian production, the Israeli army knocked him down, and then dealt a massive blow to the military facilities of Hezbollah and the forces of Assad. Then, after the loss of one of its aircraft (allegedly shot down by the S-300 air defense complex), Israel destroyed in Damascus a massive blow simultaneously 8 batteries of air defense.

Conclusions Apparently, in the near future military actions in Syria are activated mainly in the central regions. The situation around the Russian military grouping will deteriorate significantly in the coming months, which could lead, if clear agreements are not reached, to its evacuation in the middle and the end of the year, as well as the annihilation of the Assad regime afterwards.

The US Army has proved its overwhelming superiority in this theater of operations, ranging from technical superiority to combat and command and control techniques. The troops of the Russian Federation prepared and conducted a completely incompetent and meaningless operation, which was revealed even at the planning stage. In addition, the Russian army is not capable of conducting night offensive operations - the troops of the Asadians and Russians were shot virtually as if in a dash, and with complete loss of orientation the latter.

Here is a transcript of the radio communication about this. The Russian media are silent about the incident, since the Russian president has already been officially announced that a final victory has been won in Syria, and therefore the dead should not be.

The information is taken from the Telegram channel WarGonzo, which is maintained by the military correspondent Semyon Pegov.
