Russian jet downing: Moscow strengthens its defenses in Syria
November 28 , 2015
Bolstering its anti-aircraft defenses in Syria, Russia has moved a cruiser near the coast and deployed new missiles at its main base amid a bitter row with Turkey over the downing of a Russian fighter jet.
The air defense system of the Moskva cruiser and the S-400 missiles will provide cover for Russia’s military planes.
Meanwhile, Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned Moscow not to “play with fire”. The Putin regime has suspended Russia’s visa-free arrangement with Turkey and is likely to introduce economic sanctions.
