SouthFront: Analysis & Intelligence is a public analytical umbrella project maintained by an independent team of experts from the four corners of the Earth focusing on international relations issues and crises and working through a number of media platforms with a special emphasis on social networks. We focus on analysis and intelligence of the ongoing crises and the biggest stories from around the world. The project provides military operations analysis, the military posture of major world powers, and other important data influencing the growth of tensions between countries and nations. We try to dig out the truth on issues which are barely covered by the states concerned and the mainstream media.

Our team is a living proof that experts and volunteers seeking to analyse objectively the ongoing events and equipped with the newest ideas and technologies, can do what only government- and corporate-linked organizations were able to do in the past.

The SouthFront Team believes that not only “professional journalists” and well-paid “experts”, but common people with an inquisitive mind, whom are highly interested in some field of public life, are able to produce balanced content in a modern information-oriented society.

Wikileaks proved that anyone concerned could make a great contribution to the triumph of the truth. SouthFront: Analysis & Intelligence has shown that anyone can create and disseminate accurate and timely world-changing content.

  1. as military air-strike power the carrier has no great importance. There were enough ground-based air-forces. The battleships were there for political reason-we didn’t know who will win the elections in the USA (really 🙂 ). Also – to block the coast and the nearest waters from NATO vessels and radio-electronic reconnaissance. The rest reasons ask the MoD 🙂

  2. Russia is now stealing propaganda ammo from the U.S. & others, who said that Russia intervened in Syria in order to permanently occupy Syria. Not true. In this regard, Russia is NOT similar to the U.S. (a permanent military occupier of Iraq, Europe, Japan & Philippines, etc.).
