Russia Using Syria's Civil War to Showcase Its Stealth Jet Sukhoi 57

Russia deploys fifth-generation Su-57 fighters in Syria

In August 2017, Russian Aerospace Forces Commander Col. Gen. Viktor Bondarev said that the country's fifth-generation fighter jet formerly known as Prospective Airborne Complex of Frontline Aviation (PAK FA), or Sukhoi T-50, has officially been named as the Su-57.

The US jets fired warning flares during the intercept of the two Russian Su-25 close air support jets according to US officials after they crossed the de-confliction line multiple times.

"We used our telephone line in the framework of the mechanism of deconfliction, and we were using it before, during and after the strike".

In December, Russian President Vladimir Putin declared Moscow's mission in Syria was over, with officials noting that 38 warplanes were returning to Russia.

An indicted billionaire oligarch thought to control the Russian mercenaries who attacked US troops and their allies in Syria this month was in touch with the Kremlin and Syrian officials ahead of the assault, The Washington Post reported Thursday.

The clash in Deir al-Zor Province appears to be the first time that USA forces engaged directly with Russians in Syria, where Russian forces are backing President Bashar al-Assad's government in a devastating seven-year civil war.

Aditya Birla group will invest about Rs25,000 crore in the state across sectors over the next five years, he said. Chandrasekaran, Kumar Mangalam Birla and Shobana Kamineni will also speak during different sessions.

But the wind down has been accompanied by increased attention on mercenaries fighting there not in Russian uniform, particularly after some were killed in a US airstrike earlier this month. In 2015, the Russian government announced it would buy an initial batch of only 12 aircraft, with its entry into service expected only by 2019-20. Most analysts believe it probably is not the equal of those planes-even when and if Russian Federation gets all the bugs worked out-but it poses a real threat to them, and it's not as though the Islamic State or al-Qaeda has been fielding an air force that needs to be shot down.

A Russian tycoon believed to control Russian mercenaries who attacked United States troops and Kurd allies in Deir Ezzor told Syrian officials he would give Bashar al-Assad a "good surprise" days ahead of the assault, the Washington Post has reported.

Sources, however, have said that dozens of Russians were killed in the recent attack while supporting the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Putin presented a Gold Star medal of the Hero of Russian Federation to the family of Major Roman Filipov, a military pilot who died heroically fighting terrorists in Syria on February 3.
