Russia didn’t have enough boots on the ground to hold anything but their airbases.

My relatives in Syria tell a bit of a different story, one which came from their actual eyes.

It’s entirely possible that the bulk of the Russian troops were actually in their sector (around al-Qamishley) and nowhere else, so ON AVERAGE were not in in evidence. But the did have a presence in that particular sector.
