And if Russia is allegedly fighting against the "Islamic State" then why was it attacking with these jets the ethnic Turkomans who actually fight against the "Islamic State" on the ground?
Infantryman < navigator, cruel but that is how military looks at it. When its about helicopter, its just a helicopter, US lost 8 last 2 months in regular flights out of combat zones.
Coz they also fight aganist regular Syrian Army? Maybe...
The naval infantry in Russia are considered as elite troops, perhaps not totally as elite as GRU Spietsnaz but still elite.
If Russia is only there to fight the "Islamic State" then that is what it should do, but no fight against others who are fighting against the IS.
There are now some allegations being made in the Western mass media that it is only the Western air forces that really fight agains the IS, while the Russians attack only the Free Syrian Army and its ethnic Turkoman allies.
It is Russia that looks dishonest here.
Are you for real ? USSR under Gorbachov always listened to western MSM and we all know how it ended.
If you care about their lies and you try doing anything to please them , then you have already lost.
They're just western weapons, they were,are and always be used against Russia., geeze.
And those Turkomans are just Turkey terrorists who NEVER fight against ISIS , maybe you confused them with Kurds - totally different minority in Syria.
And Russia actually said that will strike IS and "other terrorist groups" which she did.
Regarding Poland i can assure you that virtually nobody watches RT here .
So why should they even bother ? And RT was created specifically for an american/anglosaxon consumer audience not polish, czech, romanian,albanian,macedonian,slovakian etc.
