    I dont think so, from what i am aware in Russian army beard is not allowed. At least it wasnt, and its not allowed here either. Unless they for some reason allowed them to grow it while in field... but still it would have been quite fast growing one since they basically just came to Syria. And they sleep in proper barracks, no reason for them not to shave...as my late grandfather would say "i am not smart enough for this" lol!

    Save yourself from a headache, I'm only posting this NYT trash as a citation.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/30/world/russia-buildup-seen-as-fanning-flames-in-syria.html?_r=0

    Anyways, this part caught my attention...

    "The arrival of four multipurpose warplanes at an airfield near Latakia, Syria, on Monday brought the number of tactical jets that Moscow has deployed to Syria this month to 32. They further enhanced Russia’s ability to carry out airstrikes that experts say can give Syrian government forces a badly needed boost on the battlefield. Reconnaissance flights by Russian drones in the last week have all been over areas controlled by opponents of Mr. Assad — some backed by the United States and its allies — while avoiding territory controlled by the Islamic State."


    This could be total bullshit, and the part about avoiding ISIS territory is obvious propaganda as strategically speaking it makes ZERO sense. But, it looks like attacking the FSA isn't off the table if Russia actually is mapping the terrorist's movements. I initially suspected Russia may give the "opposition" a chance to prove themselves, now, I'm not so sure. Maybe the Russian airforce command is just making sure they know all the facts on the ground.

    Putin seeks parliamentary approval to deploy Russian forces abroad

    http://www.trust.org/item/20150930074129-zsln7/?source=fiTheWire

    "MOSCOW, Sept 30 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has asked the upper house of parliament, the Federation Council, to consider authorizing the use of military force abroad, something it will do later on Wednesday, the Kremlin said in a statement."

    Well, that's not surprising.

    This is a sign of the times of the fall of Obama. Extreme Russophobe journalist Con Coughlin writing in the Russophobian "Daily Telegraph" has declared that if this affair with Syria was chess match, then Putin has checkmated Obama. He essentially admits that the policy of America in Syria and all Middle East has failed and that of Russia is now beginning to succeed. I looked at only a few comments below his article, but it was enough to tell that majority see Putin as being correct. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/syria/11900206/Vladimir-Putin-and-the-end-of-American-influence-in-the-Middle-East.html

    "Ivanov stressed that no ground operations are planned in Syria. Russia would use its warplanes to hit terrorist targets when requested by the Syrian government. He stressed that unlike the US-led coalition of countries that bombs militant troops in Syria, Russia was invited to do so by the legal authorities of Syria and thus follows international law.

    “The military goal of the operation is strictly to provide air support for the [Syrian] government forces in their fight against Islamic State,” he said.

    The bombing campaign is time-limited, Ivanov said, not revealing a clear deadline for it. He said he was not authorized to disclose details of the operation such as the number of warplanes involved.

    “All our partners and allies will be informed about our decision today through corresponding military channels. Specific military information will be provided as well, I believe,” he concluded."


    This agrees with what Putin said, that there will be no Russian army direct involvment in ground operations, which some people tried to show as Putin "backing out".

    "Russia will brief other countries on its Middle East operations later on Wednesday, RIA news agency reports. Moscow is sharing information on air strikes in Syria with the US via its new Baghdad intelligence centre, which Russia has set up with Iran, Iraq and the Syrian regime, according to Interfax."

    Here comes the no-fly zone according to the US. My highlights

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia’s upper house of parliament on Wednesday approved the country’s armed forces to be used abroad.

    The decision includes only the use of the Air Force and does not foresee any ground troops operations, Kremlin Administration Aide Sergei Ivanov said Wednesday. “We’re talking exclusively about operations of Russia’s Air Force, as our president has already said, the use of armed forces on the ground theater of military operations is excluded. The military goal of the operations is exclusively air support of the Syrian government forces in their fight against the Islamic State,” Ivanov said.

    Syrian President Bashar Assad has turned to Russia with a request for military assistance, according to Ivanov. “I would like to inform you that the president of the Syrian Arab Republic turned to the leadership of our country with a request to provide military assistance, so we may say that terrorism needs to be fought, efforts need to be combined, but it is still necessary to observe the norms of international law,” Ivanov told journalists.

    Kremlin will inform foreign partners of the decision made by the parliament of using Russian armed forces abroad during the day through foreign ministry channels, and the military will do the same through their channels.

    According to Ivanov, the decision was made to help Syria and protect Russian interests. "First and, probably, the most important, we are talking about Syria alone, and we are not talking about reaching some foreign policy goals, satisfying some ambitions which our western partners accuse us of, we are talking about Russia's national interests alone," Ivanov told journalists. Ivanov said that the Air Force operations would be temporary, but was unable to say exactly how long they would be in play. “In regard to the timeline, the Russian Air Force operation, of course, cannot last forever and has a definite time period, but what the time period is, for example, in regard to the number of days as well as telling you how many aircraft will be used and which armament will be used by our Air Force, I cannot say right now for obvious reasons,” Ivanov said.

    Commenting on the airstrikes carried out by Western powers, Ivanov said they were not in line with international law. "As you all know very well, the United States… is launching airstrikes on the territory of Syria and Iraq, and maybe other Middle Eastern States. Recently France has joined the same analogous actions, Australia and a number of other coutnries are talking about the same thing.. I would like to note one principal moment — these actions are being carried out in circumvention of international law," Ivanov told the press.

    Russia's President Vladimir Putin has earlier on Wednesday requested permission from the Federation Council to use Russian Armed Forces abroad. According to the US Embassy in Moscow, the leaders of the United States and Russia have common interests in the fight against ISIL in Syria and have agreed to create a channel between the countries’ military branches to avoid any misunderstandings during operations in the area.

    “I would simply reiterate that when President [Barack] Obama met with President [Vladimir] Putin, they agreed that the United States and Russia have a common interest in fighting ISIL in Syria", US Embassy spokesman Will Stevens said. "However, our position is clear that President Assad is not a suitable partner for the fight against terror and extremism in Syria. There is no sustainable path to stability within Syria that involves President Assad staying in power,” he added.

    According to Fox News quoting a high-ranking US official, Russia has demanded that US airplanes immediately leave Syria.

    Russia, Iran, Iraq, and Syria have recently created an information center in Baghdad in order to coordinate the fight against the Islamic State. The information center’s main goals are to provide reconnaissance on the number of IS militants, their weapons, and their movements. Earlier this week, it was revealed that the new center would begin operations in October or November and be headed by Russian, Syrian, Iraqi and Iranian officers on a three-month rotational basis.

    Sivkov: 40-60 Russian airplanes went to Syria and two battalions to guard

    The basis of the Aviation Regiment, who will participate in the operation in Syria will make Su-25 and Sukhoi Su-24, the president of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems, Doctor of Military Sciences Konstantin Sivkov.

    MOSCOW, September 30 - RIA Novosti. Russia will form a mixed air regiment in Syria from 40-60 Su-24, Su-25 and Su-34, as well as to send two battalions to protect Russian air base, believes the president of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems, Doctor of Military Sciences Konstantin Sivkov.

    Earlier Wednesday, it was reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin submitted to the Federation Council the question of consent to the use of the Russian Armed Forces abroad. Federation Council supported the initiative of the head of state unanimously. The head of the Kremlin administration Sergei Ivanov told reporters that Syrian President Bashar Assad turned to Russia with a request for military assistance. Ivanov stressed that it acts in the Russian Armed Forces abroad is solely on the operation of the Air Force for air support of the Syrian government forces in their countering terrorist group "Islamic State" (IG).

    "Now there is a deployed air base, then power will be involved within the regiment - about 40-60 cars. If they are based on the Syrian airfield, it means that you have to use more and two battalions of protection, to ensure safety," - Sivkov said.

    He added that the main park aircraft, which will be used in the operation, make Su-25 and Sukhoi Su-24.

    "It may be also aimed available Squadron Su-34 in the experiment. It is also likely to send a certain number of air defense fighters for combat stability of our aircraft. Thus, a mixed regiment, including a pair of attack aircraft squadrons, one-two bomber squadrons and odnu- Two - Fighter "- said the expert.

    Actions reconnaissance aircraft, in his view, be limited to the use of a squadron of reconnaissance planes and drones. This Sivkov did not rule out participation in the operation of the Crimean Russian Air Force airfields.

    "It is possible to use airfields in the Crimea, our long-range bomber aircraft, but in this case the load is small, as would be necessary to fly over the Caspian Sea, then through Iran, as Turkey our bombers are unlikely to miss," - said the expert.

    He stressed that the Russian pilots are not likely to interact with their American counterparts, and with the Air Force in Iraq and Iran will divide areas of responsibility.

    "This operation will be definitely not with the Americans. Iran and Iraq will be the organization of interaction by separating the zones of responsibility of heights, goals and objectives," - said Sivkov.
