At the same time, the representative of the Pentagon did not specify specific details.

Earlier, Reuters also reported that an unnamed representative of the US administration provided information on the placement of 7 Russian tanks in the Latakia region.

Information that the Russian Federation could begin supplying T-90MS tanks to the states of the Middle East appeared as early as February of this year, but there is no official information about signed contracts.

        If Syria falls, then the "eye of Sauron" (USA) will completely redirect its gaze to Russia and Iran. Syria distracts a huge part of the attention of this world evil. Therefore, I think that Syria should be supported as much as possible.
        The Syrians and the militias of Novorossiya now, although this, unfortunately, is not so obvious to many, are protecting the interests of Russia and not helping them means betraying and putting themselves under an even greater blow.

          Let's put it differently = Syria needs to hold out until the death of two persons or individuals, namely the shaven queen and the last son of Aziz Saud. Moreover, the death of the latter, oddly enough (he was a vassal of the first) is much more important for the fall of the New World Order (already old, like the queen herself). Saudi Arabia will collapse (an adventure in Yemen will necessarily lead to this), prices in dollars will not be determined by the London International Petroleum Exchange, which was founded only in 1980, but it was the futures exchange (who needs to google it themselves), and in 1983, New The York Mercantile Exchange switched to oil futures contracts. Liberalization of the oil market began only in the 80s of the last century and, in fact, it was the final subordination of the commodity market to the New Order and became possible only thanks to the conspiracy of the Saud and Windsor, because SA was the cheapest (easiest) for oil production. And the USSR obeyed these rules (the construction of oil and gas pipelines to the West, which provided an economic breakthrough for the latter, began when there was still an Iron Curtain belay) and was dismantled by Order as unnecessary, but a new Russia was resurrected on its wreckage ...

        Well, we are building, so what?
        Will the illegal construction be prohibited or will the parents be called to the director?
        And what if this place is covered by Shells (and they are there!) And S-300 (and it has not been proven that they are not there)?
        Welcome Israeli Air Force!

      Russia is interfering with US plans for Syria, and now they sense an even greater threat. Why is ISIS not pressing hard, because ISIS (made in USA) contributes to the destruction of the SAR and the overthrow of B Assad. Therefore, predators from the USA are furious

    Yes of course. When they brought their Abrams to the Baltic states, it was help to the allies. And if the Russian Federation supplies its allies with weapons, this is a military expansion. Wonderful things are your State Department.

    Oh, horror, these nightmarish Russians are again trying to prevent mochilovo! We tried so hard, but they didn’t try again, they sent Ruslans, and all our plans fell apart. And only the colonel from the "tower" said: "I authorize takeoff." And try to touch the transporter ... How about the 35s? It's not far there, and the refueling station is all right.

    The awareness of the US Department of Defense is simply amazing. Still, the United States does not poke its bases around the world like a palisade. Russia also needs to set up its bases all over the world! It is possible that in the end it is we who will have to restore order where the Americans shit!

    Interesting ... the United States is transmitting very detailed data on how much, when, where (and even for what purpose !!) in real time, while at the same time they keep repeating about the presence of Russian troops in the east of the outskirts, about the downed Boeing (a little whether not personally VV), and evidence of this only from social networks - "one grandmother said." Amazing cynicism and hypocrisy.

    If the state members have been so fussing, especially over the last week, it means that the Syrian army is giving ISIS a strong light. Previously, there was no such noise in the supply of our equipment, but now the bases under construction have already gone into use in the Western media. What else will be seen from the "Internet satellite"?
