“Another Russian general died in Syria.” On the 18th, major general Viacheslav gradkih, a senior Russian military adviser in Syria, was killed by a homemade explosive device in Syria. This is the second Russian general to be killed in Syria. In 2017, a Russian army lieutenant general was shelled and killed in the command post in deirzur. Russian experts believe that the incident was premeditated and is likely to be related to the CIA. According to the Russian Communist Youth League line daily, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced that on the 18th, a homemade bomb exploded on the way back to the base of a Russian army convoy 15 kilometers away from deirzur, injuring three Russian soldiers, including a senior Russian military adviser with the rank of major general. Then he died of serious injuries. The Russian Ministry of defense did not disclose his name, but Russian media reported that the sacrifice was major general Viacheslav gradkih, deputy commander of the combined group army of the 36th branches of the Russian army. He was promoted to major general in December 2016 and was soon sent to Syria as a senior military adviser. According to reports, the major general led a military advisory team before his death to provide assistance to Syrian government forces in fighting against radicals. The team provided special assistance to the Syrian army commander in deirzur province. Alexei leonkov, a Russian military expert, said that this was not an accident. The attack on the Russian major general was planned. “I don’t believe it was an accident,” he said. In 2017, Russian lieutenant general Valeri asabov was killed in the command post, which also happened in the area of deirzur. The incident on the 18th may have been that the armed elements had obtained information about the operation route of the Russian major general, and they had informants in the area, so they launched targeted attacks. ” Russian military historian Yuri konutov also said that Western intelligence agencies have been influencing terrorist organizations in Syria. CIA personnel are very active in the area and have been encouraging the laying of mines in Russian and Turkish military patrol areas. When there is an explosion, if Turkish soldiers are attacked, they may suspect Russia, and vice versa. Russian military expert Viktor baranitz also stressed that the attackers obviously mastered the Russian general’s bus route. Either there were traitors among Syrians or professionals from the US intelligence service participated in the attack. Yuri Spitz, a former Russian diplomat, said that not only western military personnel may also be responsible for the death of a Russian general in Syria. This may be a targeted action against the Russian army. At present, there are soldiers from European and American countries in Syria who have been specially trained to carry out such tasks. Because of geopolitical interests or the Russian army affected the implementation of some of their plans, Russian generals became the targets of their attacks. < / P > < p > at present, Russian troops in Syria are mainly deployed in hememim base, where front-line fighters and other models of Russian air and space forces are mainly deployed to perform air strike missions.
