Armed Russian military police were shown in footage aired on Zvezda flying into the Syrian air base in northern Aleppo province near the border with Turkey and fanning out to secure the area.

The move comes after U.S. President Donald Trump abruptly ordered the withdrawal of U.S. troops from parts of Syria last month.

On Thursday, Zvezda said Russia had set up a helicopter base at an airport in the northeastern Syrian city of Qamishli, a move designed to increase Moscow’s control over events on the ground there.

“We entered the base and took the inner and external perimeter under control,” a senior Russian military police inspector was quoted by Zvezda as saying.

  2. Seriously? What is going on? Standard procedure when you evacuate a base is to destroy installations. You and I have been in the military…

    • Hello equinoxio21. tRump ordered the withdraw so fast and unexpectedly the bases had no time to do anything but get out fast. He wanted it done in such a short period of time. One base had so many munitions that they had to launch their own planes to bomb and missile their own base. The military brass was pissed, but Russia was happy. They showed video of Russian troops arriving on the bases our troops just left hours or less before. Russian TV showed their troops looking at the stuff we left, fully stocked kitchens, vending machines, and much more. tRump made his boss Putin very happy. Hugs

        • Hello equinoxio21. tRump and crew have committed many crimes, but as long as we have gerrymandered voting districts and states where Republicans who are the minority can not lose even when they do not get the most votes, we can not do much. As long as the Republicans in the Senate protect tRump there is little we can do. It seems there are a large number of Republicans taking money from Russia or are compromised by them. It seems the death of our democracy has been in the works by the Republicans for decades, and tRump was a bomb that went off while they were building it. Hugs

          • I remember that many or most German generals during WWII received fat checks (and estates) from Hitler… 😦

            • Hello equinoxio21. Corruption and greed. Nothing else helps support an authoritarian fascist government better than they do. Hugs
