112 Russian service members have died in Syria since the start of the anti-terrorist operation there in 2015,
First Deputy Head of the State Duma Defense Committee Andrei Krasov said on March 15.
Krasnov provided this data during the round table of the State Duma Committee on Health Protection. The event was dedicated to military medicine.
The Russian military operation in Syria officially started on September 30, 2015. Since then, the participation of Russian forces in the conflict played a key role in the defeat of ISIS and allowed the Damascus government to stop the advance of Al-Qaeda-linked, foreign-sponsored terrorist group. The developments of the next years fully reversed the course of the conflict and as of now the Syrian-Russian-Iranian alliance is the dominating force in the conflict.
