The Russian Defense Ministry has reported that eleven aircraft had returned to their permanent bases in Russia from Syria over the past week.

“Russian warplanes flew on their own, while army aviation helicopters were transported by military-transport aircraft,” the ministry said.

Flight officers and technicians who were responsible for the maintenance and repair of the Russian aviation equipment at Hmeymim airfield have likewise returned to their permanent bases from Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry added.

@News Desk : wrong picture :
These are Tu-95 strategic bombers. They were never deployed in Syria.
Despite being introduced in 1956, on November 17th 2015, Tu-95s had their combat debut, being employed for the first time in long-range airstrikes as part of the Russian military intervention in the Syrian Civil War…

Bada news for Syria-Hebola-Iran-Russia gorind forces. This means that the support and protection from Russia aerospace force is getting smaller and smaller all the time, and this means that ISIS-Daesh attack will become stronger and more harder to get rid of them. In addition, ISrael-USA air attack to Syria can become more frequent than before (Although this is not important because Russia will never shot down any Israel or USA plane ).

Russia retreats from Syria like a coward before the storm.

Last time they said they returned jets home, these were also replaced by more jets… Strangely, at the same time, we have this :
https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/russian-strikes-overwhelm-jihadists-as-syrian-troops-prepare-to-attack-northeast-daraa/
The worst issue with Russian jets : the short lifespan of engines :
Total overhaul after 1000 hours, engine rarely lasts more than 3,000-4000 hours.
Most of the time, Russians jets in Syria do 3 missions a day…
To give a little idea, US fighter-jet engines need overhowl after 2,000 hours and are scrapped around 6,000-8,000 hours while a Safran (SNECMA) M88 as 1st overhowl after 4,000 hours and being modular, is likely to last more than 16,000 hours…
