200 Russians Were Killed by US Airstrikes Today News - Widow of Russian 2 days ago   17:58

[UPDATE]: The bridge was destroyed not on January 9, but on February 6, i.e. just 1 day before the attack.

Over 200 Russian military contractors were killed by US airstrikes in Syria on February 7, 2018.

The contractors were members of the so-called Wagner Group private military company (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wagner_Group). Russian law officially bans mercenary service and private military companies, so in really the Wagner Group is just a unit of the Russian Ministry of Defence in disguise. Many of the Wagner contractors gained military experience in eastern Ukraine before departing to Syria.

Khusham is an oil-rich area in Deir el-Zour province in north eastern Syria, which has been the major source of revenue for ISIS in 2014-2017. In September 2017, the area was liberated by U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Although Assad is now controlling about 50% of the territory of Syria together with his allies Russia and Iran, he still needs resources to cover his expenses on war and to keep his regime alive.

By some information, Assad proposed a deal to Putin – to keep 25% of all oil resources that Putin helps Assad to return back under his control. US, which wants to remove the tyrant Assad from power in Syria, obviously opposes that.

Russian attack on SDF started at 10 pm on February 7, 2018. Initially, only one battalion tactical group participated in the attack, which included more than 10 tanks and 30 other armored vehicles.

US forces responded to this attack with devastating strikes using high-precision weapons, probably including HIMARS rocket systems. The latter rocket systems destroyed Russian cover artillery batteries, while drones were used to help to guide fire.

After Russian artillery and Russian-Syrian offensive operational groups were destroyed, subsequent strikes destroyed rearguard units, which basically eliminated the second battalion tactical group.

Simultaneously with artillery strikes, electronic warfare system was operating, which completely suppressed radio communication with the offensive groups.

The air space was most probably controlled by two pairs of F-22 Raptors, which monitored possible appearance of Russian aviation in this region.

In 2 hours, 80% of all Russian and Assad forces were destroyed. Then, elimination of the remaining small groups began.

Using Lockheed AC-130 and two pairs of attack helicopters covered by F-22’s, Americans wiped out the area from the remaining groups of enemy.

The total losses of Russia and Assad constituted up to 90% of all military vehicles and 70-80% of manpower. Americans didn’t have any losses. The total duration of the operation was about 6 hours.

Russian collusion
Using tanks in a desert when U.S. air power is present is suicide.

It would be interesting to find out how those "contractors" were armed & supported relative to regular Russian forces. It would perhaps serve as demonstration on how each side would fare in a US-Russia war (God forbid that happens).
Joe Smith
Yet they say Trump is Russian puppet! Lol
Russia are a bunch of wimps

fred uncle

Andre The Templer
Looks like sending forth troops to get killed to anger them against the us.
Dan Sul
lol US backed "Syrian democratic forces"aka US puppets.

The amount of Russophobe racist fucks on here is ridiculous. You can keep hating on Russia (who btw all but annihilated ISIS) but the real enemy is the US military sector for creating so much strife in the middle east and is the main and only reason why there was ISIS in the first place. The amount of hatred towards Russians is fucked up -
john leary
Russian “mercenaries” American “contractors” lol word games to make one guy okay and one not okay. I’m American and support America, I also don’t believe in this Russia bashing shit, because those who talk shit won’t be the ones fighting when it happens. And I will be fighting and I don’t want to fight Russia who we have no real problems with other then culture and government. Our government is more like theirs then us Americans think lol, we aren’t free anymore it’s a system just like Russia is now. So we aren’t far apart and we aren’t true enemies they haven’t attacked us or tried to start wars, we have sanctioned them and tried to start wars. Leave them alone! Leave America alone! Live in peace as long as you can! When this was happens it will be the world war 3 we fear and some want to provoke it like there can be a winner lol. Yes we will win, yes Russia will be crushed, but at what cost? And it won’t be easy like these cave fighter wars. There will be jet fighters and dogfights to match our air support that flies free now, there will be massive numbers of armor and men on both sides, and massive numbers of nukes on both sides. So there will be no winner. There will be total destruction on all fields that that war will touch. Avoid it.
