Moscow to supply Syria with equipment to protect Russian troops


The Presidential Administration of Russia

Moscow had to take additional measures to protect its military in Syria, said Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

According to him, action of Israeli pilot which led to the death of Russian servicemen made harm to relations between the two countries, RIA Novosti reports.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on September 24 that the Syrian air defense command posts will receive automated control systems. In addition, Russia’s radio-electronic warfare units will jam satellite navigation, onboard radars and communication facilities to attack goals on Syrian territory. Moreover, the Syrian army will receive the S-300 air defense complex very soon.

The Presidential Spokesman called the Russian-Israeli relations "close enough." Dmitry Peskov recalled that it was Israel which the Russian military established operational coordination with. This system worked correctly until the tragedy happened a few days ago.

As Russkiy Mir reported, last week the Ministry of Defense accused Israel of killing 15 Russian servicemen. They were on board the IL-20 military aircraft which was shot down by the Syrian air defense system as a result of provocation by Israel.

Israeli fighter jet F-16 used the IL-20 as cover exposing it to Syrian air defense. The Israel planes deliberately created a situation dangerous for both planes and other aircrafts in the area.

Interviewees claimed that the introduction of CSTO peacekeepers had no effect on interethnic dialogue because the Russians living in the Republic were not associated with Russia - they were locals.
