Austria refused to open the sky to NATO aircraft to attack Syria

Austria refused to provide airspace for the passage of NATO combat aircraft in case of their redeployment to attack Syria.


"The unofficial requests of the alliance by the Austrian Foreign Ministry refused, because in the absence of a UN mandate such a decision is contrary to the law," ITAR-TASS reports, citing the electronic version of the newspaper Kronen Zeitung.

“The republic will continue to occupy a neutral position in the Syrian conflict,” the Austrian edition quoted the official representative of the foreign affairs agency. He clarified that the decision to refuse the request of NATO was taken collectively by the President, the Chancellor and the Foreign Minister.

Austrian authorities have repeatedly urged Western countries to refrain from any action that goes beyond the UN mandate.

"The reason for this request may be a regrouping aviation parts from northern Europe to the region of conflict, which indicates the readiness of the coalition to strike at Syria, "the newspaper notes.

Turkey launched SAMs and radars to Syria

Meanwhile, Turkey, a neighbor of Syria, deployed in its direction anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) and radar. The air defense units of Turkey, located near the Turkish-Syrian border in the province of Hatay, were transferred, as previously reported, to an enhanced duty regime.

The Turkish Ikhlas agency notes that these preparations were made because of possible threats that might come from the Syrian side in connection with the combat operation being discussed in the West against this country. It is reported that radar installations operate in a constant mode.

At the border, Turkey has several mobile SAM systems with Hawk missiles used for the destruction of aircraft and missiles, as well as installations with Stinger missiles. It is noted that in the event of a threat from Syria, these complexes will be involved in the first place.

On Wednesday, 28 of August, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said that the Turkish armed forces are ready to do everything necessary to ensure the security of the republic. This also implies retaliatory strikes, to which the army has the right given to it by a parliamentary mandate a year ago.

Meanwhile, it is not yet clear whether Ankara, in the case of an anti-Syrian operation, will be engaged exclusively in defending its territory or will take part, directly or indirectly, in the hostilities themselves.

    Breaking News:

    The Russian General Staff said that they were still sending new ships to the shores of Syria: an anonymous source of IF in the military department said that the naval group in the Mediterranean would be supplemented in the coming days with a large anti-submarine ship of the Northern Fleet, later the missile cruiser of the Black Sea Fleet Moscow would join them. ", and in the fall - the missile cruiser of the Pacific Fleet" Varyag ". The issue of sending Russian ships to Syria is suspended in the air; on Tuesday in the navy - and they also anonymously refuted the data that Russia was sending new forces there. Meanwhile, Western media claim that an attack by Western countries on Syria may begin in a little over a day: military actions, according to these data, will be preceded by a speech by British Prime Minister David Cameron, who will report on the chosen course of action. According to The Guardian, the performance is scheduled for today, at 17:30 Moscow time.

      This is not very urgent.

      Moscow is now in Venezuela (yesterday the commander of the Navy of this country examined her). Kulakov on the way to the strait (Gibraltar which), the Varangian generally gathered in Australia, and from there it will already be visible where he will go.

      By the way, do not forget about Panteleev, who if something, then immediately run, but so far peacefully stands on Novorossiysk naval base.

      It is not worth dumping the RCA yet - R-60 went to provide the 2 BDK to Tartus. This can be quite effective in tracking launches and transmitting information directly to the ATS. BOD and SRZK may not keep track of everything on a large theater, but the RCA can be attached to almost everyone, but there is still a tanker to display.

      Also for the same purpose, you can use the running oldies - Inquisitive, Okay and Savvy.

          Well, this is not a fake, but a somewhat embellished reality in the title.

          At the moment, none of the combat surface there are no ships except the BDK. Kulakov is on his way and will be in the coming days (another day before the strait and how much to go through Middle-earth there). Panteleev is standing by the firefighter, he has 2-3 day of the move.

            All these ships and did not stand next to the "Moscow". For good reason, all three Cruisers of Project 1164 are now needed there: Moscow, Marshal Ustinov and Varyag. But they are scattered throughout the fleets. Longing-sadness ... sad

    Austrian women are great. The mere refusal to bend to the demands of NATO partners in this situation is already a great courage for them. And although their demarche does not mean absolutely nothing, "in the distribution" I propose to credit this to Austria as a "mitigating circumstance."

      Moscow still has to go and go across the Atlantic, although the UN already says that there will be no blows until the experts are there and they leave 30. Then a couple more days and Moscow is already where it is needed wink .

    It’s a good opportunity, without getting into a military conflict, to simply help Syria repel a missile strike against it, for one, and to fire at real targets (missiles) of NATO troops, without retaliating against them. So, reluctantly click on the aggressor's nose.

    There are also states in Europe (Austria), whose leaders in foreign policy activities rely on international jurisdiction, common sense and human conscience. Unfortunately, there are few of them. Basically, Europe looks into Obama's mouth (and still somewhere). Let us hope that the number of states supporting Syria will increase.

    Now it remains to wait for the results of the audit, well done Lavrov was able to convince some states not to go on about the United States
    At least 12 states of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) have already refused to participate in a military operation against Syria, unless the UN Security Council authorizes it. This was reported by ITAR-TASS with reference to an informed source in Brussels.

    "There are actually many more countries that have definitely refused any form of participation in hostilities in Syria without the sanction of the UN Security Council, we are talking about at least a dozen states," the source said.

    He added that the consequences of the operation in the SAR are "absolutely unpredictable", and the victory of the rebels in its current composition "is unlikely to return long-term peace to Syrian soil."

    Earlier, the British parliament rejected a resolution on the need to "toughly respond to the humanitarian crisis" in Syria, which "could require the start of a military operation." "Against" the initiative of Prime Minister David Cameron was 285 deputies, "for" - 272.
