Russian forces demonstrated their prowess in the destruction of the opponents of the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu says; but ten kinds of Russian weaponry, especially those in high-tech sectors like cruise missiles and communications, did not perform well.

Shoygu’s comments came on Thursday at an expanded collegium of his ministry, at which Vladimir Putin also spoke, and were quickly overshadowed by the Kremlin leader’s claims that Russia is stronger than any potential aggressor and is modernizing its nuclear forces.

At that meeting, Putin said that “we must do a lot to strengthen the nuclear triad… do more with the navy… and perfect the systems of intelligence and communications.” But despite that, he added, he could “with confidence say that today we are stronger than any potential aggressor.”

That provoked a response by US State Department spokesman John Kirby that he “doesn’t think that in the entire history of humanity have there been armed forces… stronger than those of the United States at the present time.”

And that in turn led to another comment by Aleksey Pushkov, chairman of the Russian Federation Council’s Commission on Information Policy. In a Tweet, he said that “the State Department has called the US Armed Forces the strongest in history. But Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan show the impotence of force: the US can win a war but then lose the peace.”...............

TU-154 crashed due to terrorist attack – Yevhen Marchuk

Ukraine’s ex-defense minister Yevhen Marchuk believes the Russian TU-154 plane crashed due to a bomb on board, Marchuk wrote in Facebook Dec. 25, Ukrinform reported.

 “If the communication ceased abruptly simultaneously with the disappearance of the plane from radar screens, it means the entire crew of 8 pilots died at once.

It also means the blast occurred close to the nose part of the plane, killing the crew, or the plane fell apart due to some other reasons, “Marchuk writes.

If the plane started to break up due to technical reasons, the crew has some seconds to report the accident, Marchuk says.

 “It will be easy to find the planes ‘red boxes’ as they emit signals for 30 days, even at the depth of 1 km. The sea is 70 m deep in the area of the crash.

It is a matter of guesswork whether the Russians will disclose the whole truth,” Marchuk says.
