    You know that at this point it's been confirmed by independent sources that no chemical weapons were used right? It's not just "Maybe the rebels did it." There was no chemical attack period.

    Putin Orders Start of Syria Withdrawal, Saying Goals Are Achieved

    MARCH 14, 2016


    MOSCOW — President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia on Monday ordered the withdrawal of the “main part” of Russian forces in Syria, a surprise move that reflected what he called the Kremlin’s achievement of nearly all its objectives in the war-torn country.

    The news upended expectations in Western capitals and among ordinary Syrians, setting off fevered speculation about Russia’s intentions, much as Mr. Putin’s unexpected military plunge into the Syrian battlefield five months ago changed the course of the war.

    Perhaps the most urgent questions were how the move would affect the war’s outcome and what it meant for President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, whose rule had been increasingly threatened by a string of military losses before Russian forces backed him up.

    The Russian decision could signal a new confidence in Mr. Assad’s stability or an effort to pressure him to negotiate with his political adversaries — or both.

    Mr. Putin has made his move at a particularly critical moment, as the upheaval in Syria enters its sixth year and a United Nations mediator in Geneva tries to revive peace talks to stop the war, which has displaced millions and created a humanitarian catastrophe.

    Putin announces Russian troop withdrawal from Syria during visit


    11 December 2017

    Russia has begun withdrawing some of its troops from Syria, Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Monday.

    President Vladimir Putin ordered the partial withdrawal during an unannounced visit to Syria on Monday.

    Russian support has been crucial in turning the tide of Syria's civil war in favour of government forces, led by president Bashar al-Assad.

    Mr Putin made a similar withdrawal announcement last year, but Russian military operations continued.

    When asked how long it would take for Russia to withdraw its military contingent, Mr Shoigu said that this would "depend on the situation" in Syria.

    The Russian president was met by Mr al-Assad at the Russian Hmeimim airbase near Latakia.

    Mr Putin said: "I order the defence minister and the chief of the general staff to start withdrawing the Russian group of troops to their permanent bases," according to the Russian RIA Novosti news agency.

    "I have taken a decision: a significant part of the Russian troop contingent located in Syria is returning home to Russia," he added.

    Yeah. That would be nice. Of course that was before the fake chemical attack.

    Yuan becoming safe haven for investors amid Russia-US standoff
    https://www.rt.com/business/424824-y...rld-investors/




    (If I were now a US/UK seizure 'target' or an oligarch with 'dark money' I'd do Yuan too.
    'Safe Haven' is very real to those seeking refuge for their plunder.
    and not just criminal 'targets' .....
    but simply those finding themselves in the crosshairs of hegemon polemics now weaponizing banking.
    Yuan is a good choice.)

    Israel’sbombing of Syria earlier this month predictably prompted many in the Alt-Media to declare that this time Russia will surely ‘teach its ally a lesson’ by openly turning into the ‘anti-Zionist crusader state’ that their dogma has indoctrinated them into imagining that it’s been this entire time. They were, as is becoming the norm, totally wrong, and three specific events prove that ties between the two sides aren’t in a state of “crisis” but are rather flourishing, with the latest milestone in their relationship being the resumption of free trade talks.
    First things first, it took Russia over 24 hours to summon the “Israeli” “Ambassador” after the early-April bombing of Syria, which is extremely unusual behavior if Moscow was indeed as caught off guard as it publicly proclaims to have been at the time. Ordinarily, the offended country would immediately request an official meeting with the insulting party’s top representative, especially when the incident in question had to do with an unannounced military strike that could have supposedly injured the host country’s servicemen, but this curiously wasn’t the case.
    Furthermore, it took President Putin two full days to speak to Netanyahu, which is also very strange if one believes the Alt-Media narrative that Russia and “Israel” are experiencing one of their worst crises in decades. In addition, it wasn’t even the Russian side that initiated the conversation but the “Israeli” one, which again wouldn’t normally be the case if Moscow was so furious at Tel Aviv that its leader felt like giving his counterpart a serious tongue lashing. Instead, it looks like Netanyahu might have even been calling President Putin to thank him for his calmness in handling the situation.

    Israel's Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Tuesday that his country would attack Russian S-300 air defence systems in Syria if they were used against Israeli targets.His remarks came a day after the Russian newspaper Kommersant reported that Moscow could soon start to deliver S-300 systems to its ally Damascus, and cited a source as warning of "catastrophic" consequences if they were attacked.
    "What's important to us is that the defensive weapons the Russians are giving Syria won't be used against us," Lieberman told the news website Ynet.
    "If they're used against us, we'll act against them."
