Anti-terrorist operation in Syria carried out by the Russian Aerospace Forces demonstrated the country’s ability both to resist any aggressor and to cooperate with the military of other countries, head of Russia’s Republic of Ingushetia Yunus-Bek Yevkurov told Sputnik on Friday.

MAGAS (Ingushetia)  Yevkurov stressed that the operation in Syria was a success of the Russian Aerospace Forces.

 

“[Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov] have managed to demonstrate to the whole world, and to our people in the first place, that the country’s armed forces are able to conduct large-scale military operations as well as local wars, and engage in such situations as in Syria,” Yevkurov said.

The civil war being fought in Syria between government troops and numerous opposition and terrorist organizations has been raging for nearly six years. Russia launched its anti-terrorist operation in Syria on September 30, 2015, at the request of the Syrian government.
