In regard to Russian lessons learned during the fighting in Syria, the Syrian conflict has tested arms and technologies in each of the services along with transport capabilities, and the results and improvements in the force have significantly increased the options available to decision-makers in conflict situations and made Russia into a more formidable military power. A host of leaders at all levels of command gained combat experience as well.

The lessons that were learned during the fighting in Syria are now included in the major exercises held each year in one of the military districts, which tests the combat readiness of the force in general for a variety of potential conflicts.
