The deployment of Russian Su-57 fighter jets in Syria poses no threat to the US-led coalition’s military operations and the United States will continue to deconflict operations with Russia as usual, US Department of Defense spokesman Eric Pahon told reporters.

“We do not consider these [Su-57] jets to be a threat to our operations in Syria, and will continue to deconflict operations as necessary,” Pahon said on Thursday.

Pahon said deployment of the SU-57 aircraft to Syria would not seem to be “in keeping with Russia’s announced force drawdown.”
On Wednesday, media reported citing anonymous sources that two Russian Su-57 fighter jets were spotted at the Hmeymim airbase in Syria.

​Russian lawmaker Vladimir Gutenev told Sputnik on Thursday that the deployment of the Su-57 may serve as a constraining factor for aircraft of neighboring states that periodically violate Syrian airspace.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov responded to the news by redirected the question to the Ministry of Defense and saying that the issue was “more within the responsibility of the Defense Ministry.”

The fact is that every time things seem to get better and Russians think they can reduce their inputs, the Muslim Brotherhood and their Turkish/Arab backers reinforce their input, thinking Russia lets Syria down and this time everything will be OK.
This sticks to the definition of insanity by Einstein, thus, Russia shouldn’t release pressure until the cockroaches are finished.

Well maybe they should. When you deploy your latest and most advanced weapons it’s clear that you have no intentions to back down but you are prepared to go until the end…
