Military transport aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces fly to Syria via Turkey

Military transport aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces fly to Syria via Turkey

On Monday evening, the Russian Ministry of Defense confirmed the flight of the Il-76MD heavy military transport aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces to the Russian Hmeimim air base. It is reported that the flight of the Russian aircraft passed through Turkish airspace. This follows from the monitoring data of western aviation resources.


Reportedly, the Russian military transport Il-76MD took off from the airfield in Mozdok (North Ossetia) and, having traveled through Turkish airspace, landed safely at the Khmeimim airbase. Later that day, the plane returned to Russia. The nature of the cargo is not reported. A day earlier, on Sunday, at the Khmeimim airbase, two Tu-154B-2 aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces landed at once, which also flew through Turkish airspace.

The passage of the Black Sea Straits is confirmed by the large landing ship (BDK) Novocherkassk, which proceeded to Tartus. This was the fourth ship of the Russian Navy, which passed the straits after the escalation of the conflict in the Syrian province of Idlib. In front of him, two frigates Admiral Grigorovich and Admiral Makarov, as well as the BDK Orsk, passed to Syria.

Recall that earlier Lebanese information resources reported that several military transport aircraft Il-76 of the Russian Aerospace Forces landed at the Khmeimim airbase in the Syrian province of Latakia. At the same time, it was said about seven Il-76MD aircraft and two Tu-154B-2.

    Take a chance. Everything can be expected from the Ottomans. Moreover, their Russophobia is growing.

        yes .. here the Turks will have to choose: either tourists with money, or planes with bombs.

        Not only this year, but in general ... And how many “shuttle traders” invested in the Turkish economy in the 90s!
        Therefore, in Russia you need to have as much as possible of your own, both in production (from small things to satellites), and in the field of inexpensive leisure! And all this is still needed "yesterday", because everything that was "the day before yesterday" was killed ...

      As far as I remember, a very long time ago, before the S-400, the Turks landed our plane. But now the situation is different, if the General Staff doubted it, they would bypass it. Most likely rotation, wounded, sick. The rest will go the other way ...

      This is the most interesting thing. In the media and social networks of Erdogan, spaceships are falling in bundles, and our soldiers are in droves. But in reality, our BTA flies through Turkey and deliver weapons. Moreover, the Turks do not touch them, but ours are not afraid that the Turks might offend them. request
      Il76 - this is most likely some kind of equipment that was not transported by sea, because it needs to be delivered quickly. Tu154 - this is the personnel brought. That is, some military unit with weapons and equipment was delivered to Syria. Moreover, the technique is such that breaks into il76. Something larger like the c400 or the Iskander would have to be carried by the Ruslans. Perhaps the means of electronic warfare? Just in the area of ​​the battalion - two.

        Vitaly! hi I also have a feeling of the illogical nature of what is happening. But the logic should be.
        To begin with, a direct military clash is equally not beneficial to either Russia or Turkey. Both sides mutually lose the benefits of TP-1 and 2, nuclear power plants, S-400, SU-35, tomatoes, tourist flow and much more.
        Further, what will Erdogan get from the occupation of Idlib, which, according to the media, has become the meaning of life for him? A long-lasting smoldering conflict with Syria and the cooling of relations with Russia, which will lead to retaliatory actions. For example, high-tech weapon models may “suddenly” appear at the Kurds they love, and Gulen may come to the Victory Parade from the Turkish side. Turkish builders can be asked "with things out" and much more that you can think of. Erdogan is ambitious, but not dumb. Must understand all this. And I believe that he understands better than you and me.
        But there must be an explanation - why he does all indecency there. It seems to me that at the close of Syrian Kneading, he decided to have time to solve his two problems:
        1. Kurds. A lot has been said about them. I do not see the need to repeat.
        2. Bearded "refugees advocates of democracy." There are several thousand of these warmed "orphans" inside his country, at least. Getting rid of them is problematic. Ideally, send them to war (no matter to Syria or Libya) with a one-way ticket. But they will not leave for obvious slaughter. And they will leave for a small victorious war with the support of the Turkish army. That’s what happens by agreement on both our and the Turkish side, an imitation of escalating tension. For reliability, Turkey donates a certain amount of weapons, armored vehicles and, although it hurts, but its soldiers. Our side creates the appearance of help for the bearded in individual settlements. To increase morale and attract new couriers, which are then successfully mixed with sand using artillery and aircraft. Why did it occur to me? And remember the graters with Israel, when our IL was shot down. The tension was an order of magnitude less. So Netanyahu was in Moscow the next day. That was a real concern about the situation. And here, judging by media reports, the war is on the verge, but the parties are conducting some kind of telephone conversations, consultations and “express concern,” while carefully avoiding sharp corners. And they are waiting on March 5 to meet. March 5th, Karl! I don’t know how anyone, but it seems to me that in order to prevent the real threat of a big war, you need to somehow move the rolls quickly. And, as it seems to me, even after March 5, the situation will not change much, because not all bearded people will have time to visit the gurus by that time.
        Something like that. I do not pretend to the ultimate truth. Time will tell.

            And so it is. Of course, there is a lot that can seem on emotions.
            But I am sure. What is it easier for Putin to "kick" with Erdogan, Syria for two. Erdogan is his own. I see. They’ve already made a lot of money with him. And they plan to file. But everyone else, muddy. Kurds? Give them free rein. So they themselves will disconnect and also from Iraq will begin to bite pieces from Iran, and in general they are very strongly tied to the states. Assad? If you remove the entire local sofa chatter - Assad - this is a problem. Just because the sex of the country did not recognize him. It does not recognize. You do not need to be a great seer to understand that Assad, as a person, as a president, etc. will never be able to unite Syria. There is no longer just a split. And the abyss.
            Iran? Iran is still dreaming of a Shiite Islamic revolution. With such an “ally,” you won’t earn either money or receive peace. Because, as they will a priori climb to Israel now to the remaining Sunnis in the region.
            In the reality. In all this mess - Erdogan, the most understandable and most reliable person in the local circles. With which you can really agree.
            I think now the main auction is not around Idlib. Idlib is a consequence of Assad's "identity" problem. And the bidding is for him. Russia still needs it to cover up the legitimacy of its presence in Syria. He crossed the mountain to Erdogan because for Assad Idlib this is such a last chance for himself to nevertheless record himself as a unifying hero, albeit at the cost of the entire local Turkish-speaking population.
            In general, the main bargaining in Moscow. It will not be for Idlib. Not beyond the line of demarcation. And for the fate of Assad. As a person who will / will not be the face of Syria in the coming years.
            And here we have to wait and see. Will the King and Sultan converge in price.

    Probably, it’s a shame for the Turks to realize that through their territory (straits, airspace) of the Russian Federation they drag weapons and ammunition into Syria, and this all then flies to the Turks and their wards

    Strange people reporters. In addition to the nature of the cargo, can it immediately inform the purpose of its delivery with an indication of the performance characteristics? Erdogan did not agree to ban the passage of our aircraft through his airspace, which some hot Turkish heads shouted about. Maybe this will be counted in the upcoming negotiations.

    It is strange of course that through Turkey. I remember once there was an incident, even before 2014, the Turks landed our military plane, who was traveling to Syria with military cargo, and requisitioned the cargo. Then there was a lot of noise, but they did not say how it ended. It seems they returned but not all.
