BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 A.M.) – Over 48,000 Russian military personnel were deployed to Syria between 2015 and 2017, the Russian Ministry of Defense stated on Wednesday.

At least half of 48,000 Russian troops deployed to Syria have been withdrawn after Vladimir Putin’s visit to the Hmaymim Military Airport earlier this month.

The Russian military was first deployed to Syria in late September 2015; however, the Kremlin sent most of their troops to the country in mid-2016.

According to a previous statement from the Russian MoD, their forces helped eliminate more than 62,000 militants during their short tenure inside the country.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction
