RUSSIANS SHARE VIDEOS FROM HASTILY ABANDONED U.S. BASE IN SYRIA: ‘MANBIJ IS OURS!’

Russian journalists have been sharing videos of a hastily abandoned American military base in northeastern Syria, after Russian troops accompanying Syrian government soldiers swept into the power vacuum on Tuesday.

Multiple videos from a former U.S. facility near the city of Manbij were shared by Russian journalists on Twitter. One of the journalists was identified as Oleg Blokhin, a war correspondent attached to the Russian mercenary organization known as the Wagner Group.

RT was also at the location on Wednesday, filming in front of what appeared to be abandoned barracks and recreation areas.
