The Best Way to Know What Russia Does in Syria to get to the sources, and one of the most reliable ones is the Russian Ministry of Defence, which provides much information first hand.

The only minor problem is that their English is sometimes worse than mine (though, as I wrote well before, my English is not perfect at all — as it is not my native language). Anyhow, together we can do it closer to perfection than ever before.

Today, their piece of news goes a bit beyond the regular warfare chronicles, and this 'beyond' is the most interesting part of it.
Russian Ministry of Defence comments on publications appeared in a number of anglophone media quoting some “medics” of the “Syrian American Medical Society” concerning Syrian civilians who were killed by air strikes of the Russian aircraft carried out against a “hospital” in Sarmin settlement on October 20.
Russian Ministry of Defence is carefully monitoring and analyzing such stovepiping.
First, it is necessary to tell about the Syrian American Medical Society. This organization, which is registered in the American State of Illinois, has as much to do with both medicine and medics as ISIS has to do with the international Scout Movement.
Since its foundation in 2012, the organization was mainly used for publishing so-called “evidence” of using chemical weapons against the Syrian opposition. When it became evident all those "evidences" wee lies, the “agency” laid low quietly.
The real intended aim of such institutions is providing anonymous stovepiping for further coverage by the assigned mass media.
Such an approach is used by other agencies” of the kind, which are famous for accusing the Russian Airforce of bombing of civilians a week before the Russian group began their flight missions in the Syrian sky indeed.
Before eliminating any terrorists’ object information is being checked through several intelligence channels for days. Only having got a 100 per cent certainty concerning the targets, the aviation performs a strike against the ISIS infrastructure using proper high precision munitions.
The Russian Defence Ministry receives many requests from the foreign media concerning the Russian air group in Syria. The Defence Ministry constantly presents the materials and provides explanations concerning different issues of the activities of the Russian aviation in the region.
There is a number of applications with requests for visiting the Hmeymim airbase, where the Russian aviation group is deployed. The media tours like the one that took place last week will be arranged in the future as well.
However, among those applications there are some unique ones, for instance, the one from the Moscow bureau of a famous western publication: “The analysis of the news releases of the Russian Ministry of Defence shows that nearly 80 per cent of objects being hit by the aviation are not under the ISIS control.
There are only two things we can do here: first, we advise them to be more accurate in such matters, and second is we ask them to provide us with the available information on coordinates of the objects under the ISIS control.
Moreover, this application allows to conclude that the data is not kept somewhere in Pentagon, but here in Moscow, in the bureau of a Western media agency.
The original news release in Russian is here.

And the recent video for you to enjoy:

That's what I call a good strike (here, on a militants position in Hama province). Just have a look at some white smokes going up close to the main black burst of smoke; that means, the bomb hit right and hard, and went through to some underground facility.

So, what does Russia care if the dogs bark at her? The dogs bark, but Russia goes on.
