A member of the Russian Armed Forces has been killed in Syria in the line of duty, authorities from the Tikhoretsky District of southern Russia’s Krasnodar Territory, where the serviceman lived, said in a statement.

According to the statement, the deceased service member has been identified as Maxim Pletnev.

“Since 2012, he served in the airborne forces of the Russian Armed Forces… On January 31, 2019, [Pletnev], aged 25, was killed in the line of duty”, the authorities said in a statement.

The details about Pletnev’s death in Syria have also been published on a website that posts information about soldiers who served in the military of Russia, the Soviet Union and the Russian Empire.

Russian servicemen have been operating in Syria, supporting the Syrian government in its fight against terrorism, since 2015.

Sean : the gas pipeline was a Qatar-Turkey project…And removing Assad came on the table when he refused the transit, the Qatar used its habitual poison (bribes, lobbying, etc)… Now, ever asked yourself why Assad refused while Syria would have earned billions dollars in transit fees? Well, EZ : Syria is a long time ally to Russia and… North-Dome is the biggest gas basin on Earth while Qatari population is very low in numbers… EU is the #1 energy market and the #1 export client for Russian gas providing 36% of Russian GDP… Would the Qatari gas had reached the… Read more »

Now you don’t seem to get that EU energy procuration is under multiple attacks! Here you have the map of pipelines selling oil to the EU : So… US-backed coup in Ukraine : Poroshenko wanted to cut the gas pipelines, thus, serious miscalculations : most of Ukrainian economy relied on trade with Russia while they don’t qualify to enter the EU, moreover, you can’t enter the EU and be a dictatorship. Thanks to US lobbying and proposals to become the #1 hub for US LNG added to free F-16s and other armaments, Poland also wanted to cut the pipelines, but… Read more »

So, Sean, sorry, you totally missed the point… Everybody wants his piece of the #1 energy market, the EU… EU is the buyer and you have the multiple potential sellers competing… And ALL are playing dirty by trying to f**k up the others’ pipeline projects.
So you have the Yanks, Russia, Qatar, Iran with the EU on their line and a megalomaniac Erdogan who has taken gigantic loans he can’t repay…

@Daeshbags-Sux, the French back-stabbed Germany probably to push their spendthrift plan of a common Eurozone budget and debt system.

German pro EU politicians will loose to AfD and Die Linke EU and Euro skeptics – who never say anything against Russia but much against Europe.

What will France gain when Germany leaves the EU like the UK and joins the Russian economical sphere?

The UK are the biggest pushers for regime change after the US and Saudi in Syria.

@Sean, not the West but the US and the Gulf made war in Syria.

The EU is also the West in figurative speech but was not involved.

The US hawks and some other folks still talk about the West and East as if we still had cold war. And I guess they work on another.

@Daeshbags-Sux, The pipeline war is only one aspect. The US wanted the destroy a Ba’ath party system and the Russian base in Syria. He fought those that carry full responsibility to have broken UN’s A/RES/2625(XXV). The US weapon deliveries transgressed export treaties. CAR (Conflict Armament Research) report “…many of these transfers (of weapons and ammo) have violated the terms of sale and export agreed between weapon exporters – primarily EU Member States – and recipients in Saudi Arabia and the US. These are clear cases of diversion, whereby government recipients have broken end-user agreements…”
