Russian specialists from the International Mine Action Center in Syria have returned to their home base in Moscow’s Nakhabino, the Russian defense ministry’s press center said on Sunday.

“Servicemen of the Russian Armed Forces’ International Mine Action Center have returned to their home base in Nakhabino outside Moscow from Syria,” the ministry said, adding that the Russian specialists took part in the withdrawal to Russia of engineering equipment and weapons, namely anti-mine machines, BTR-82AM armored vehicles, Taifun and Rys armored cars, specialized engineering equipment and Uran-6 robotic systems.

While visiting the Russian airbase at Syria’s Hmeymim on December 11, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered to begin withdrawal of the Russian taskforce from Syria after the crushing defeat of Islamic State terrorist group (banned in Russia).

Nevertheless, Russia will keep in Syria two military bases – Hmeymim and Tartus – along with the Center for Reconciliation of the Warring Parties.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
