This hours-old post I just saw on /r/syriancivilwar — a Russian blogger gets a tour of a Russian military base in Syria.

    Immediately I will say that the fact that I was in Syria does not make me a Simonov, Tvardovsky, Field or Kapa. Or Poddubny. They are not me.

    For April 21-22, it is impossible to inspect the whole of Syria. Especially to tell about all at once. But what I saw, I'll try.

Don't skip the second part, which has some new photos from librated Aleppo.

Interesting photos look exactly like us blogger photos from Iraq or Afghanistan after “liberation” I think the Russians learned a lot from the us propaganda playbook
