Russian Military's New Year Video Showcases... Puppies?

Russian Federation became involved in the multi-front conflict in September 2015, when it began an aerial campaign in support of President Bashar Assad's military.

At least four Su-24 bombers, two Su-35S fighters and an An-72 transport plane, as well as an ammunition depot, were destroyed by the shelling, Kommersant said on its website, citing two "military-diplomatic" sources.

The clip - titled "Loyal Friends" - was posted on the Russian Ministry of Defence's YouTube channel, to celebrate the New Year. Other outlets or government agencies have not verified the claims.

The Ministry of defence of the Russian Federation issued on Wednesday a press-release in which it confirmed crashes in Syria December 31, Mi-24 and the death of two pilots.

The Defense Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday that the Mi-24 helicopter was en route to the city of Hama when crashed on Sunday. Both pilots died as the helicopter made a rough landing 15 kilometers from the destination airfield.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the New Rochelle Police Department's General Investigations Unit at 914-654-2270. She said she heard screams and then called 911, with the slashed teen later dying at hospital.

There was no hostile fire on the helicopter, the ministry added.

Last month, Russian Federation announced it was withdrawing the bulk of its forces from Syria after it had been fully liberated of Daesh elements.

Moscow acknowledged in recent months that its special forces are also active on the ground in the offensive against the Islamic State (IS) group.

Russian Federation announced last month that it had accomplished its military mission and would focus on rebuilding the country and preserving peace.

Hezbollah has backed the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad throughout the conflict.
