A clever move after only 6 months

Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered his military to start withdrawing the “main part” of its forces in Syria.

The Russians began the military campaign just six months ago.

4000 Russian rebells were fighting against the Syrian president – mainly with ISIS – 2000 Russian soldiers came to help him.

What did the Russian achieve, according to the Ministry of Defense?

The Russian Hmeimim air base and the sea base in Tartus will remain, like before.

The 30 combat aircraft and the support teams will fly back to Russia this week.

Putin said:

“The Russian intervention had largely achieved its objective.

I consider the mission set for the defence ministry and the armed forces on the whole has been accomplished.

I am therefore ordering the defence ministry to begin the withdrawal of the main part of our military force from the Syrian Arab Republic from tomorrow.”
