In anti-terrorist operation in Syria from the Russian Federation may participate only catering officers and volunteers, said military sources.


In a possible military operation of Russian Armed Forces against terrorist group ISIL in Syria will be involved only catering officers and volunteers-contractors, reported several military sources to «Interfax-AVN» on Wednesday.


«If the decision on using the Russian military contingent in Syria will enter the stage of implementation, the military operation will involve only catering officers and contract servicemen, who have expressed a desire to appropriate it», — said one of the sources.


According to another source, «a military operation to counter the ISIL will involve mainly the officers of the General Staff, the Air Force and the military-technical staff to service the aircrafts».


«Conscripts won’t be involved in military operations abroad. It is absolutely impossible», — said another agency’s source.
