    Not yet ratified? They think for a long time. It's time to knock on the head. They have become too abstruse. The new year is ahead, our Duma will go to a binge.

      But in my opinion, on the contrary, they decide everything very quickly when it smells like a new round of business

        Yes, here it’s not a matter of business, but although everything concerns him,
        Agreement between the Russian Federation and the Syrian Arab Republic on the expansion of the territory of the logistics point of the Navy of the Russian Federation in the vicinity of the port of Tartus and the entry of warships of the Russian Federation into the territorial sea, inland waters and ports of the Syrian Arab Republic of January 18, 2017 (temporarily applies from January 18, 2017) A similar agreement was signed at the Khmeimim airbase. Russia can also use it for 49 years with the possibility of further extension.
        Thus, Russia has now officially received a naval and air base in Syria, which makes it possible to quickly influence the situation in the region. This is one of the answers to the question - what will Russia receive from participating in the Syrian war. But that’s why it was not clear with the ratification in the State Duma. hi

          Yes, it’s only possible at any time to break this agreement by warning in a year. In the contract, this is all spelled out, you have not fully posted the information. Sense to build something there? - so that one day the Syrians would point us to the door, and Assad would not last forever. By the way, without any war, we gave up two excellent bases in Kamrani (Vietnam) and Lourdos (Cuba), and even wrote off debts of more than 10 billion to each of these countries. Where is the guarantee that this will not happen again ?!

            There are no guarantees, but this is not a reason to do nothing and we must protect our interests so that we are not kicked out in the louse.

    ... not a "can", but it must be done.
    By this decision, at least they will raise their efficiency by adopting REALLY important laws.

    I don’t know what will happen later, but now it’s so nice, in particular, to read even though the paragraph, but “expanding the territory ...” the President of Russia ... good how little man needs, for joy!
