These are many airstrikes.
Russia launches over 90,000 airstrikes in Syria – report
Report from the last week:
Syrian armed forces supported by the Russian Air Force have regained control of 87.4 percent of the country, Russia’s military said, adding that Russian warplanes had destroyed over 96,000 terrorist targets in the course of the two-year campaign.
Since September 30, 2015, when Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the deployment of the Russian jets and helicopters to Syria at the request of the Syrian government, they have conducted more than 30,000 sorties, annihilating more than 96,000 targets, according to data cited in the publication.
Among the terrorist positions destroyed in the raids were 8,332 command posts, over 53,700 militants of terrorist groups, and almost a thousand training camps, as well as 6,769 oil and ammunition depots.
Since the launch of a two-year bombing campaign, Russian warplanes have inflicted serious damage to the oil infrastructure seized by IS, which is believed to be the main source of income for the terrorists.
A total of 212 oil fields and 184 oil plants and refineries that fell into hands of ISIS were destroyed by the Russian Air Force.

Compare to Pentagon:
The 100km area around the US Al-Tanf base near the Syrian-Jordanian border has become a “black hole” which ISIS terrorists use to carry out attacks against Syrian troops and civilians, the Russian Defense Ministry said.
“There were no reports of a single American operation against Islamic State during the six months of its existence,” the Russian Defense Ministry said.
The ministry also accused the US of not letting humanitarian convoys through the area to reach the Rukban refugee camp, which is located close to the base.

Last night on Newshour, there was a clip from Raqqa. It said the US has dropped more bombs there than in all of the Vietnam War. It also said the only people currently pushing out the remnants of ISIS in that city are the YPG, miserably under supplied, and US airstrikes. I thought the Syrian Army was doing the majority of the fighting. Why aren't they in Raqqa? Will they not fight with the US and YPG (I may have those letters mixed up a bit).
Come on Assad...you're almost there buddy.
Funny how Russian propaganda is being pushed! No collusion, eh?
What would you do if you wake up one day and have no bogeyman!?
