Combat aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces are the basis of the force grouping.

By the start of the military operation, situation in this country was critical. The government of Syria conducted warfare against terrorism on its own. In fact, units of so-called 'moderate opposition' mixed up with the ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra, which had been well-funded, well-armed, and supported by their foreign sponsors.

Terrorists used to control more than 70 per cent of the Syria's territory, and continued their offensive from all directions.

Actions of the Russian force grouping has significantly damaged control and logistics systems of terrorists. Main weapon and munitions supply routes have been cut out. The terrorist organizations have lost financial income sources from oil trafficking.

Russian aviation performed 28,000 combat sorties, and conducted about 90,000 strikes during the operation in Syria.

Actions of the Russian force grouping allowed the Syrian Arab Army to turn the tide.

Territory controlled by SAA has increased in 4 times (from 19 to 78 thousand square kilometers) since the start of the Russian ASF operation.

In the south of Syria, 181-kilometer section of the Syria-Iraqi border as well as 1950kilometer Syria-Jordanian border in the provinces of al-Suwayda and Damascus have been taken under control of SAA.

Results achieved in fighting against terrorism in Syria made some political actors possess the situation in a new way. This allowed to launch the political settlement process.

As a result of agreements between armed opposition and Syrian government, which had been achieved under the facilitation of Russia and Turkey, ceasefire regime has been established in the Syrian Arab Republic.

Issues of establishing of four de-escalation zones in Syria have been approved in course of the fifth round of negotiations in Astana. De-escalation zones located in the south-west of Syria, in East Ghouta, and to the north from the Homs city are operating successfully. Issues of establishing another zone in the Idlib province are being discussed.

Control over the ceasefire regime observation is carried out by units of Military Police of the Russian Federation.

Establishing of de-escalation zones allowed to cease fire between armed formations of moderate opposition and government troops as well as to stabilize the situation in southern and central areas of Syria.

Main efforts of SAA and Russian Armed Forces grouping are focused on the last ISIS stronghold near Deir ez-Zor.

The ISIS terrorists are concentrating their forces near Deir ez-Zor. Insurgents from Mosul and most battle-ready units have been redeployed there.

Units of SAA and militia supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces are developing their offensive on Deir ez-Zor from three directions. Moreover, a large ISIS grouping has been encircled near Uqayribat. It is being defeated.

Al-Sukhnah has been liberated from ISIS insurgents due to hits of the Russian Aerospace Forces and offensive actions of the government troops.

As decision on providing military assistance to Syria had been taken, deployment of control system of actions held by the Russian force grouping has become the priority task for the General Staff of the Russian Federation.
