(Archive footage) RUSSIAN SPECIAL OPERATIONS FORCES IN SYRIA


The Special Operations Forces (SOF) are a highly mobile, well-trained, and equipped, constant combat prepared special operations force of the Russian Ministry of Defense. Designed for performing specific tasks, the SOF has the ability to function both within the country and abroad, in peacetime and in wartime (with the application of military force, by necessity).


The Russian Ministry of Defense defines the term "special operation" as "methods and ways of fighting not characteristic of conventional forces: reconnaissance and sabotage, subversion and sedition, counter-terrorism, counter-sabotage, counterintelligence, guerrilla, counter-guerrilla and other activities".


The SOF have been primarily involved in Syria, conducting target acquisition for Russian Air Force combat planes conducting airstrikes and Russian Navy sea-launched cruise missile strikes, serving as military advisors training Syrian government troops, seek and destroying critical enemy objects, disrupting behind enemy lines through ambushes, high value targeted assassinations and retaliation strikes against select groups of militants
