Russia goes home

With Assad’s victory over Aleppo, Russian military support is less necessary, but will stay substantial. With the withdrawal of the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier and supporting ships Russia says to start diminishing military support in Syria.

Sending warships to a desert country should make you ask the true purpose of this naval battle force. Though the Kuznetsov is an aircraft carrier and has the capabilities of striking land based targets, active missions from this ship have been marginal at the most. The true purpose of Russian aircraft fleet is show of force. On 21 October the Russian fleet sailed by Dover on their way to Syria, now they can go once more back via the English Channel. Maybe we should organise a welcome home event at Calais and Dover, we play Russian music loud and cheer when the boats come by 😉
