THE blitz of chemical weapons sites in Syria carried out by the US, UK and France raised the terrifying prospect of a conflict between the West and Russia.

The Kremlin has had Syria on lockdown for nearly three years with its mighty army, air force and navy running the show.

Since Vladimir Putin intervened in support of the Bassar Al-Assad’s regime in 2015, the tide of the Syrian civil war has changed dramatically.

Pro-government forces now control 78,000 sq km compared to 19,000 sq km before Putin got involved.

Moscow’s devastating air power has almost wiped out the opposition in urban centres.

Human rights organisations accuse the Kremlin of killing tens of thousands of innocent civilians – particularly during the Aleppo offensive.

In December it emerged more than 48,000 Russians have seen combat action and pilots had flown some 34,000 operations.

Putin announced a partial withdrawal at the time as he declared victory, but said Russian troops would maintain a presence at the Hemeimeem air base and a naval facility in the port of Tartus.

“Your heroic actions and professionalism helped preserve the Syrian state, stop mass killings, executions and terror against civilians,” Putin told hundreds of soldiers.
