The investigation of “Fontanka” about very “memetical” military campaign, which almost officially called the “vagnerovsky”:

the Fighters of the defunct de jure private military company bear losses in Ukraine and in Syria, and it does not spoil the official statistics. On sepulchral crosses there are dates of life and death, but on the site of the last battle speak quietly and only among friends. “Fontanka” found out, where you can see a true list of Russian losses – not published Executive orders signed by the President of Russia Vladimir Putin.

Battalion with heavy infantry weapons and armored vehicles, known as “PMCs Wagner“, technically does not exist. This unit will not be found in law enforcement agencies or in the register of legal entities. Soldiers not in the formulary lists of personnel. It could not exist: in Russia there is no law on private military companies, and civic organizations, having in the Arsenal of armored fighting vehicles, portable anti-aircraft systems and mortars. But it’s there.

Formed on the basis of the “Slavic corps”, battered in Syria in 2013, conditional PMC under the command of a man with the Callsign “Wagner”, according to “Fontanka”, in the spring of 2014 acted in Crimea, and then in the Lugansk region.

PS. What fighters talk about Syria, fully in line with all the other information about what is happening:

“…In Syria, told to “Fontanka”, the tactics of “Cheers” continued: “What are we doing? Come on first wave. Direct the aircraft to the artillery expelled the enemy. For us cheerfully enters Syrian special forces, followed by Vesti-24 together with ORT with cameras at the ready going to interview them”…”

Actually, about the way I described the battle of Palmyra those who are directly there. “Fontanka” once again confirms already known.

Russia’s losses in Syria tens of victims. But the press service of the defense Ministry does not lie – to the war Department soldiers do not belong. However, the mercenaries from PMCs Wagner get these medals.

From autumn 2015, the main effort moved to the territory of Syria. Her story can be read in the investigation of “Fontanka” the “Slavic corps” returned to Syria”.

The story about “semi-legendary” PMCs have believed not all. The skeptics are few words nameless soldiers, they require of the names and supporting documents. “Fontanka” is ready to provide them.

The Russian Ministry of defence placed an order to manufacture 10 300 medals to reward soldiers who participated in military operation in Syria, writes Le Parisien. Until then, the Kremlin did not disclose the number of its military on the Syrian territory and persistently denied leading any ground action in parallel with the air raids. But the number of medals it is possible to estimate the true scale of the Russian operations, the newspaper notes.

The Russian defense Ministry is going to reward soldiers who participated in military operations in Syria, where they fought alongside the Assad regime against ISIS*, writes Le Parisien. To this end, the Kremlin has ordered to make more than 10 thousand medals – this became known from the order placed by the Ministry on the procurement website.

These 10 300 medals, which will cost 2.2 million rubles (approximately 28 900 Euro), allow us to estimate the full scale Russian military operation in Syria, which began on 30 September last year, the newspaper notes. Moscow has always denied that it maintains in Syrian territory ground military action in parallel with the air raids. In addition, she never reported exactly how many Russian troops are in the conflict zone, although he acknowledged that there are special forces units.

But journalists have seen Russian soldiers on the artillery positions near the ancient city of Palmyra, which the forces of Bashar al-Assad recently recaptured from the jihadists of the Islamic state, says Le Parisien. According to official information, five Russian soldiers were killed since the beginning of operation HQs of the Russian Federation in Syria.

If you believe the photos scattered across social networks, the medals will be engraved with a ship and military aircraft, and in the background you will see the outlines of Syria, says the publication.

* “The Islamic state” – a terrorist organization whose activity is prohibited in Russia (approx. RT).

Reader comments on the website of Le Parisien:

Giovani: Ten thousand medals worth 28 thousand euros… It’s as if the soldiers hung around his neck, the coin of 2 euros – it would go faster. Hilarious!

Sreda54: Indirectly, the Russians are fighting against the countries – members of NATO, and indirectly Russia benefits from NATO with the score 1:0.

J’tedipa: Russians are great people, they are direct and bold. Bravo, Assad and Putin!

Plumeau: I admit I always hated the Communists… But since you came to power, Putin, I became his devoted fan. Long live Putin and Russia! (I live in France and my comments are obviously going to enrage some.)

John381: Bravo! I’m French and I’m proud of you! France in the person of Hollande Turkey allows us to deal with, but at least you are defending the true values of the West and France. Once again thank you Russia for helping us after 1945. Thank you so much! If in 1945, Russia was not here, we would when the wolf of Nazism, and in the next century, in 2015, if Russia was not, we would have the hell of a Nazi Islamism. History repeats itself, and history has always condemned traitors of the homeland!

Tell: throughout history the Russians have always been brave. The West should learn a lot from this great nation.
