Putin, in Surprise Visit to Syria, Signals End of Military Intervention


(CNSNews.com) – Russian President Vladimir Putin, on a surprise visit to Syria Monday, announced the abrupt withdrawal of Russian forces after a deployment that has evidently succeeded in preventing the overthrow of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Russian pilots began returning home immediately, according to the Kremlin.

Visiting the Hmeimim airbase in Latakia province – the hub of Russia’s military operation in Syria – Putin and Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu met with Assad and addressed Russian personnel, thanking and congratulating them on their achievements.

“By helping the people of Syria to maintain their statehood, to fight off attacks by terrorists, you have inflicted a devastating blow to those who have directly, brazenly and openly threatened our country,” he said.

“In just over two years, the Russian armed forces and the Syrian army have defeated the most combat-ready group of international terrorists,” Putin said. “I have decided to redeploy most of the Russian military contingent from the Syrian Arab Republic to Russia.”

Putin launched the airstrikes in Syria on September 30, 2015, in a campaign ostensibly targeting ISIS but seen by the U.S. for much of the time as primarily designed to prop up the Assad regime – by targeting rebel groups other than ISIS, including opposition groups which the West has supported.

Apart from pilots and air force support staff, Russia deployed special forces troops, sailors, reconnaissance and logistic support units, military police, medical personnel, field engineers and advisors.

Russia also used the opportunity to test military capabilities in combat environments, for example launching cruise missiles at targets in Syria from warships in the Caspian Sea – traveling more than 900 miles across Iranian and Iraqi airspace – and also from a submarine stationed in the Mediterranean.

Putin’s unexpected visit to Syria – his first as president – was added onto a scheduled trip to Egypt. Russian media say the president will also go to Turkey for talks with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan about President Trump’s

The order to withdraw Russian forces from Syria comes four days after Shoigu reported to Putin that the country has been completely liberated from ISIS.

The U.S. reserved its judgment, and U.S. Central Command commander Gen. Joseph Votel, speaking in Bahrain on Saturday, cautioned that the claim could be premature, saying pockets of ISIS fighters in Syria probably numbered “well into the hundreds” if not many more.

“The Russians have declared operations over with, it is hard for me to understand how they would reach that conclusion,” the U.S. Army general was quoted as telling reporters.

“We, as the [U.S.-led anti-ISIS] coalition, are still fighting, and we intend to complete the operations that we are undertaking in the middle of the Euphrates valley, and some other areas that will be necessary,” Votel said.

The Centcom commander also expressed concern about the ongoing presence in Syria of Iranian and Hezbollah forces.

Tehran has provided Assad with financial, military and moral support, and its Lebanese Shi’ite proxy Hezbollah has also been deeply involved in the fighting on the side of the regime.

Russia and Assad have frequently emphasized that Russia and Iran are operating in Syria at the request of the Assad regime, unlike the U.S. and its partners, which they charge are violating Syrian sovereignty and international law by carrying out military operations there.

In contrast to the U.S. reaction to the Russian-Syrian-Iranian claim that ISIS is Syria is defeated, the administration welcomed Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi’s announcement on Sunday that security forces had recaptured the last areas of that country from the Sunni terrorist movement.

“[W]e offer our sincere congratulations to the Iraqi people and to the brave Iraqi security forces, many of whom lost their lives heroically fighting ISIS,” said State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert in a statement.

“The Iraqi announcement signals the last remnants of ISIS’s self-proclaimed ‘caliphate’ in Iraq have been erased and the people living in those areas have been freed from ISIS’s brutal control.”

    Send my intellectual property to every Patent Attorney and person that you know.

    The intelligence community has stolen and prevented the filing and sale of my intellectual property. I own the Quantum Technological Revolution worth Trillions of Dollars.

    Botched CIA Murder Operation in Russia; CSIS Murdering Ring of Citizens; World-Changing Physics

    Help Me – I will pay a premium (Millions) – No Fail Contingency Case of a lifetime!

    This CIA has tried to kill me multiple times in conjunction with CSIS.

    Botched CIA Murdering Operation in Russia: http://www.basrc.biz/help
    Send everywhere and publish everywhere! World-Changing Physics
    Help my Family and Me!

    I need the attached information (unequivocal truth) uploaded for everyone to see. I have tried unsuccessfully.

    Good afternoon, my name is Benjamin Allen Sullivan. I have world and humanity changing discoveries (Mathematics, Physics, and Otherwise) that have been prevented from recognition and academic accreditation by the intelligence community. Below is the information that I have sent to thousands of Media, Government, my Fellow Americans, Academia, and every legitimate faucet of Democracy relentlessly without success (manipulation by the CIA et al.).
    I have attached my discoveries (Unification) and the patents that I own (including filing certificates) for the Quantum Technological Revolution (Quantum Radio and Communications, Quantum Imager, and Quantum Encryption Systems and Software) are available at the links provided below.

    My family and I need your help – our lives depend on it!

    We need you to validate and publish my Discoveries, Physics, and Science.

    Any other help that you can provide will contribute to saving our lives:
    1. I need a Whistle-Blower Attorney (and firm) for the no fail contingency case of a lifetime (I am willing to pay a premium).
    2. Main Stream Media Reporting the Truth.
    3. Medical Attention for the removal of these implants and the remainder of me repaired after years of torture, abuse, and multiple attempts at my life.
    4. Academia validating my Discoveries, Physics, and Science and reporting the same.

    Please help us!

    Help my family and Me!

    Good afternoon, my name is Benjamin Allen Sullivan and I desperately need your help and legal counsel.

    I have information substantiating years of torture, abuse, multiple attempts at my life, a botched CIA operation in Russia, theft of my intellectual property, and decimation of my life by the CIA and CSIS.

    I had a deadline of 13 July 2017 to have these filed with WIPO and have them fully protected. There is no way that I could have accomplished this after these people have systematically destroyed my life.

    These people have manipulated my life in every way and prevented the sale and filing of my intellectual property and prevented the establishment of my business to exploit my discoveries, physics, and science.

    In fact, there is absolutely no statute for time (or even my actions – which have been honorable and truthful) as long as these illegal implants remain in my body and my U.S. Constitutional Rights and Civil Liberties are being discarded with every legitimate facet of democracy prevented from functioning.

    This intellectual property is worth trillions of dollars and it has been stolen (I possess the patents for a quantum radio, quantum communications system, quantum imager, quantum encryption and associated software – filing certificates attached and other intellectual property prevented from filing). I can pay you/your firm with the recovery and filing of this intellectual property which is an integral component of this case. This is the contingency case of a lifetime and I am willing to pay a premium for your firm’s legal help.

    I will engage the Affirmative Asylum process (I have an I-589 electronically filled out – attached).

    I am a U.S. Citizen and entitled to ALL my Constitutional Rights and Civil Liberties. My U.S. Government (CIA) Drugged me by stabbing with a needle and put these illegal implants in my body.

    I need your help with this urgently.

    In addition to this, I have presented all the same information that I have given you to the Washington Post (Peter Finn) and thousands of other media emails.

    I am living by squatting in houses, in a tent, or in shelters after arriving in DC on 02 July 2017. I entered the US from Mexico by swimming across the Rio Grande and hitchhiking my way here. I do not have a fixed-address. I am prepared (and looking forward to) being a witness against these criminals and bringing them all to justice via legitimate democratic trials on home US soil with public access, media, public accountability, and all the components of democracy functioning.

    I need your counsel more than you can imagine. I require a lawyer that is willing to tackle the former director of the CIA, the U.S., and Canadian Governments, CSIS, and the remainder of the implicated intelligence communities involved.

    I am in constant fear of my life and need your help and your legal counsel!

    I know how incredible all of this sounds (and it is incredible), I could not make this up if I wanted to and I have the substantiating evidence to support it. Please start with reading the document: CSIS Murdering Ring and Operation in Russia

    Please help me immediately.


    I have also temporarily abolished a former business website to place all of the documentation in one place:


    Please Help Me!

    *note* that my phone no longer works and I can only be contacted via e-mail: CEO@BASRC.Biz I can phone you prior if we arrange it, and I am able to meet with you in person (preferred) once you have had a chance to review all the information.
