At the same time, in Tartus, the sun will set over the darkening waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Not far from the coast, the rusty ghost of a ship stays black forever. And, while the deputies in the Duma will continue to hysterize about their hard work and heart attacks that go up to the throat, the marines will come out at night. The Tartus naval base will plunge into a night nervous one to whom you can’t call a dream.
A little further north, at the Khmeimim airbase, airfield refuellers, occasionally excited by a roar, will fall into the same nervous coma aviation engines.

And here the world started. No matter how badly the western ones scratched their bald head, and even the pro-Western home-grown media, they couldn’t understand with their stingy logic. Not able to. And some people, and in general for complacency, reduced everything to fanaticism. The answer is simpler and deeper - Alexander Prokhorenko is a Russian officer.
