Putin’s fearsome Spetsnaz units are preparing ground assault to ‘wipe out’ rebels fighting the Syrian President

Russia has sent fearsome teams of special forces into Syria to help prop up President Bashar Al Assad, it has been reported.

Vladimir Putin’s crack Spetsnaz units are said to be preparing a ground assault on rebels fighting the Syrian President – most of whom are backed by the West.

They have been ordered to wipe out opponents ‘by any means’.


We’ll see. I am curious to see how Russia will conduct itself.

They do appear to operate without silly “rules of engagement”.
