The Kurds blocked the military of Russia in Syria

The columns of the Syrian troops, as well as the Military Police of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, were stopped by the Kurds at the entrance to the city. Negotiations of the parties lasted about seven hours, but the Kurds did not let other soldiers go to Tabaka. As a result, Russian-Syrian units deployed and left the checkpoint, FAN reports.
On the eve of the first time, officers of the Russian Military Police patrolled for the first time in the city of Manbij in northern Syria, 25 km from the border with Turkey. According to the military police officer Safar Safarov, the Russian military brought peace and order to the region.
“Neither the Turks nor the Kurds want to harm us, so thanks to our work, the fighting stops. A week ago, we could not afford to call in Manbij openly, with a flag demonstration, ”the military said.
He also added that the only ones who obstructed the work of the military police of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation were American soldiers whose paths intersected with zones of control of the Russian troops.
The day before, the Russian Defense Ministry published a map of the alignment of forces in northern Syria. Materials are posted on the official website of the military department.
The map outlines the state of affairs at the front. Syrian government forces occupied the city of Manbij.

In addition, the Syrians took control of the vicinity of the town of Et-Tabaka, including the eponymous airport, two automobile bridges, one railway, and two hydroelectric power stations on the Euphrates River.
Turkish troops also stopped on the west bank of the river, meeting with Syrian forces a couple of tens of kilometres north of Manbij.
The area east of the Euphrates remains with the Syrian Democratic Forces and Kurdish formations. The troops of President Bashar al-Assad control the city and airport of Kamishli and the city of Hasek, in the rear of the Kurdish-Syrian alliance Syrian Democratic Forces (SDS).
It remains under the control of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) a foothold west of Deir ez-Zor, in the region of Et Tabia.
The Ministry of Defense emphasized that the Russian military police are patrolling the northwestern borders of Manbij. Interaction with the Turks is also organized, reports NSN.
In early October, Turkey launched Operation Source of Peace in the north-east of the state. Officially, its goal is the creation of a buffer zone - a protective belt for the Turkish border, where Ankara intends to return Syrian refugees.
However, to a greater extent, this operation is nevertheless directed against the Kurdish “People’s Self-Defense Units” (YPG, the largest unit of the SDS), which Turkey considers to be a terrorist group.
The head of the European Parliament, David Sassoli, said that the EU should take political and diplomatic measures in relation to the Turkish side in order to stop military operations in Syria.
Sassoli also called the Turkish military operation "active war."
“We want the EU to take political and diplomatic steps for this,” the head of the European politician said.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad called the Turkish operation "an egregious invasion" and "aggression." The head of state also emphasized that the regime of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan is conducting “criminal aggression” against Syria.
US President Donald Trump sent a rather unusual letter to St. Erdogan on the day the operation began - it is devoid of diplomatic sophistication and begins with a clear threat.
“Listen, let's make a good deal.” You don’t want to be responsible for the killing of thousands of people, but I don’t want to be responsible for the destruction of the Turkish economy, and I will go for it, ”Trump writes to Erdogan.
The US President noted that he had put a lot of effort into solving some of Turkey’s problems and was sure that Ankara would be able to make an excellent deal with the Kurds. Trump also added that Erdogan should not "let the world down."
Erdogan, having received the message, “completely rejected” it and threw the letter into the bin, the BBC television channel reported.
Regarding Moscow, Trump said: Russia with its participation in the Syrian conflict risks repeating the fate of the Soviet army in the Afghan military campaign.
"They [in Russia] there [in Syria] have a lot of sand with which they can play," Trump quoted Bloomberg as saying in a meeting with Italian President Sergio Marella.
In response, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the Kremlin sees no reason for such statements.
“To get stuck - not to get stuck ... There is a specific task, concrete work is underway, and there are already concrete results. The line of [Russia] is consistent, understandable and transparent, ”the Kremlin representative said.
