Russia will put an end to American rudeness in the Middle East

By the end of this year, the Russian State Duma will ratify the agreement on the expansion of the Russian logistics point in Syrian Tartus. Experts have no doubt - it’s about creating a full-fledged base for the Navy fleet RF.

A logistics point in the city of Tartus has existed since 1971, and is located in the northern part of the local port and occupies about 20% of its area. It was created for the repair, supply of fuel and consumables of ships of the Mediterranean squadron of the Soviet Navy. The Tartu PMTO never grew to a full-fledged naval base. In fact, it was a series of basic sites.

Since 2015, Tartus has been serving the supply of the Russian group in Syria.

The strategic importance of Tartus for Russia is difficult to overestimate. And not only in the context of the Syrian operation. From here you can control the movement of two US fleets at once.

    Well, why are we boasting ahead of time. Back in Syria, everything can change, at any moment and not for the better, there the whole process goes along a very thin and sharp "blade of the sword", almost something is wrong, or you fall or you cut yourself ...

    The port is very necessary because they will soon begin to supply civilian goods for the restoration of Syria, and here our people should not oversleep ... the Chinese influx of equipment and consumer goods.

      A port is needed rather a terminal for the export of hydrocarbons to world markets,
      not more
