Russia Is Not Supplying S-300 Air Defense Systems To Syria

FILE IMAGE: Sputnik / Kirill Kallinikov

On May 11, aide to President of Russia Vladimir Kozhin told Russian newspaper Izvestia that there had been no talks over a possible S-300 surface-to-air missile systems delivery to Syria.

 “So far, there has been no talk of deliveries of modern new systems”, Kozhin said.

He also noted that the Syrian Arab Armed Forces have “all they need”.

According to the Russian state-run news agency Sputnik, Russian Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov declined to comment Kozhin’s remarks saying that it would be wrong to connect those statements with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Russia.

“We never announced these deliveries as such. However, we said that after the strikes [by the US, France and the UK on Syria], Russia reserves the right to do whatever it deems necessary,” Peskov said.

Netanyahu met with Russian President Vladimir Putin on May 9. Following the talks, the Israeli prime minister said he has no reason to believe Russia will attempt to limit Israel’s freedom of operation in the region.

“I told President Putin that it is our right and indeed our duty to take any steps required for to safeguard our security interests,” Netanyahu told reporters on a telephone briefing from Moscow airport, minutes before taking off en route back to Tel Aviv.

Let’s take a look how the S-300 story has developed since mid April:

First reports about the possible S-300 surface-to-air missile systems delivery to Syria appeared following a joint missile strike by the US, France and the UK on the country on April 14.

On April 14, at a press briefing in the Russian Defense Ministry, Head of the Russian General Staff’s Main Operations Directorate Sergei Rudskoi told reporters that Russia could renew the discussions over supplying S-300 missile systems to Syria “considering the latest developments”.

On April 16, Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov said that Russia was ready to consider any help for strengthening Syria’s defenses, including the S-300 surface-to-air missile systems.

On April 23, Russian media speculated quoting military-diplomatic sources that Russia could deliver its S-300 missile systems to Syria “within one month”. On the same day, Lavrov stated that the issue of Russia’s supplies of S-300 missile systems hadn’t been decided upon yet. Then, Peskov refused to comment on the delivery, when he had been asked about the growing complexity of the situation and with the possible supply of S-300 surface-to-air missile systems to Syria.

    By orders of Israel to Putin, of course.

      Muhammad Bin Salman has begun his campaign to become next King of Saudi Arabia. He collected all money from his country’s treasury and handed over to Trump regime that help him to become the next King of Saudi Arabia. For this purpose he also brought some reforms in Saudi laws to give some freedom and power to women. This is similar like former president of Yemen Mansoor Hadi requested to Saudi regime to make him or reinstate him as president of Yemen after his resignation.

      Similarly now MBS using the same formula against his own country and has requested to US and Israel to help him to become next King of Saudi Arabia. Nations avoid intervention of other powers in their own countries’ matters but MBS like intervention of other powers.

      MBS should assure himself that US and Israel are not a power to make him the King of Saudi Arabia because this is the Saudi Arabia internal matter but if still he is interested then he could request to Russia. The MBS political background is zero that is why he will destroy not only Saudi Arabia but also the whole Middle East particularly Yemen, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Libya etc by US and Israeli migrants.

            NATO removes missile shields from eastern europe!
            DEAL!!!
            Same as what happened during the Cuban missile crisis! (Cuba for Turkey!)
            In this war, russia has served its national interests!
            1. maintain its European energy market and prevent it from being stolen by Qatar!
            2. contain Israel via Iranian forces so that a deal can be made to remove the missile shield containing Russia!
            There is no such thing as “allies” on common interests!
            U can be sure that a deal is being made… Israel’s security for Russia’s security!
            Iran out of Syria for Kurds to retreat back to pre-war lines!

            And illegal criminal Jewish state continues to harass its neighbors and occupy their territory and whole ME is back to square one, Good deal Mr Pussin Zionists would say. And sure enough credit where credit’s due.

          • Justin

            Reality check! Israel is as important or even more important to the USA than the USA is to the USA (because they are truly owned by Jews).

            Syria is fine! What u want is for iran and Hezbollah to attack Israel so u can get ur Edorphin fix! Id love for that to happen too! But it means WW3! So lets NOT do that! We all suspect Israel to have Nuclear weapons.Lets not give them a reason to use them! There is a part of me thats wants to see Israel burn in flames but we both know that the USA will step in before that happens!

            So whats the realistic win for Syria?
            To win all of its land back and have Assad still in power! Thats the win! its not Justice! Buts it is the win because it means the USA and Israel can longer start these hegemonic wars in the middle east that u and i both know is all about oil, gas, pipe routes and energy markets! It means a Bi Polar world which means the END of terrorism (the so called war on terror) BUT back to the cold war!

            A bi polar world means no more new world order, no more globalism! The syria’s can now say they saved the world from hegemonic tyranny!

            Thats the win and it will be written in the history books! Israel wont do jack shit anymore because Hezbollah will be so powerful! No more “Greater Israel”!

            WIN!

          • So you think the US is going to remove its missile shields from E/Europe?

          • Rick Lee

            Qatar pipeline through Syria to Europe would go through Turkey just as Russian South Stream is proposed which USA coup orchestrators / state sponsors of terrorism against Ukrainians are already against. They also object to Russian North Stream II to Germany.

            Consider that Iran is across the street from Qatar and they are somewhat friendly:

            ======================

            According to the Iran Petroleum Ministry, the
            proved natural gas reserves of Iran are about 1,201 trillion cubic feet
            (34.0 trillion cubic metres) or about 17.8% of world’s total reserves, of which 33% are as associated gas and 67% is in non associated gas fields.

            —————————————

            Although an Iranian pipeline could easily be built to Iran it would then have to go through KSA first, Iraq second before reaching Syria. By the time it’s all politically engineered and the pipeline was built the Euro could have collapsed and they couldn’t afford anything anyway.

          • Justin

            “Qatar pipeline through Syria to Europe would go through Turkey”
            It would go through Saudi Arabia, then Syria and MAYBE through Turkey!

            “just as Russian South Stream is proposed”
            You mean Turkstream! SouthStream was planned to go to Bulgaria!

            “Although an Iranian pipeline could easily be built to Iran it would then have to go through KSA first”
            No! An Iranian pipeline would go through Iraq, then Syria and then via the Mediteranean Sea! It would completely avoid Saudi Arabia!

            “By the time it’s all politically engineered and the pipeline was built the Euro could have collapsed and they couldn’t afford anything anyway.”
            I disagree! Europe needs gas! Europe Gas requirements are growing greatly every year for energy and heating! They want to diversify because they dont want to depend so much on russia who could have some political control over Europe! But Russia is protecting its interests! Qatar shares the same Gas well (the biggest in the world) with Iran so they will not lose much for siding with Iran who will now feed gas to india and china!

            Europe is ry dependent on russia now! they could get Gas from the USA but its 3 or 4 times more expensive than russian gas!

          He is NOT coward… He just does what he knows the best = that what he did as KGB-spies-chef for West as he had his HQ in DRESDEN/East-Germany : to buy and sell people, cold-blooded, pragmatic, no romantic in that business…
          He is 100% for Russia. Who knows what HE KNOWS about what Russia CAN or CANNOT in this decade.. And USA ruining themselves in a war with IRAN … has a blade with two cutting edges: after that only Russia is to take and CHINA already looks with LESS trust to Moscow.. Russia could remain ALONE with all that pack of Jewish-Zionists on the neck, at the end…

          There were small pYgs, that he bought and sold in Dresden… now as President of the Russian Empire, are whole countries.

          Bill Gates and Steve Jobs started small , too… ;)

          Things DON’T develop so as tehy should. Sorry but this si my humble oppinion

          ——–BTW, “You can call me Al” => have you seen that ISRAEL was expecting an IRANIAN attack from syria?? ..

          And when the IRANIANS “heard more on me than on you”.. Israel arranged a FALSE-FLAG to have a “legal reason” in front of the World#s Public Opinion, to start what tehy wanted ==> a MASSIVE direct intervention in Syria

          ( The CIA and MOSSAD mercenary-crap didn’t do it as expected, so “the mature, “professional” killers have to do the job f*cked up by the “amateurs” => ISRAEL & the US/UK/France “joint-venture” ==>> exactly like in Libya.

          They made it and turned it and mixed it so long… till they got their “LIBYAN PROBRAM” applied in Syria..
          … And RUSSIA sits and looks, China doesn’t even mentions syria anymore, because of PUTIN’s “tango with the [PUTIN said]”- Our Western friends and partners”.. (SIC!)

          • as

            My point. Even on it’s worse scenario with Russian oligarchs controlling their country would said oligarchs willingly giving up it’s deterrent capability necessary for their wealth safekeeping to the western oligarchs ? No way these are the most paranoid people.

            It doesn’t work that way.

            You missed my point. Sovereign or not there’s no reason Russia to go under the west umbrella after the latter has shown such display of hostility and untrustworthiness.

          1. Assad wins only thanks to Putin. Before the Russians entered the war, the Syrians and the Iranians were slaughtered by the Sunni jihadists.
          2. Putin wants to end the war in Syria. That is why Russia provides the Syrian forces with advanced weapons to win over the terrorists. Like the T-90 tanks.
          3. Putin is one of the smartest leaders in the world. He knows better than anyone else what is good for Syria. He knows that a war with Israel is bad for Syria and good only for Iran.
          4. Iran has fired several Grad missiles into Israel, causing Iranian bases to be destroyed, but Syrian soldiers were also killed and Syrian equipment destroyed in vain.

          • DaBoiiiii

            The iranians entred the war around the same time russia did and were just as vital in properly training and advising dyrian ground forces as russia was with its air support.

            The majority of the improvements to the combat effectiveness of syrias ground forces are thanks to Iran and Hezballah.

            No iranian bases were destroyed. If u believe the israels the entire iranian facilities were destroyed. They landed a decent blow, nothing that iran or syria cant handle.

            War with israel is what the entire region needs. A war to eradicate the scum that have been firing at the syrians for ages now.you think they only attacked because of iran retaliation? Theyve been attacking syria since 2011.

            The only person that doesnt want or benefit from destruction of israel is putin, thats why he doesnt do it. Not that i agree that putin is bad. Putin has done a great service and we thank him. But his needs and the needs of the people of the middle east are different.

          • Free man

            The war would not have developed as it did without the massive support of the Russian air force and the vast equipment that Russia supplied to the Syrian forces.
            Putin understands the balance of power in a calculated and realistic manner. The fact that Iran says it is strong and it will destroy Israel seems to be good only for the Friday sermons in Tehran’s mosques, but does not exist in reality.
            Therefore Putin wants to move to the stage of rebuilding Syria. Because that is what is best for both Syria and Russia.

        • Superfly

          Putin is absolute Zionist scum and if you notice him pinning “medals” on Nutter Yahoo just like the other idiot Trump flicked dandruff off the midget Macron. Also quite noteworthy is that fact that Serbian leader Vucic who was also invited for the “victory parade” refused to don any Russian medals. Putin has collaborated with his Zionist masters from day one. It is worse than disgusting that Russians knew in advance all Zionist attacks on Syria and even provided intel on Syrian and Iranian positions. It is only a matter of time the Russian scum will face another Afghanistan in Syria. US has already killed hundreds of dumb cowardly Ruskis.

          • Free man

            Putin mass murders Chechen civilians, about 250,000 civilians because they would not submit to Russia. Then Putin got the ok to kill Muslims for Assad. But Putin would never touch or harm the jew.

          Yes so the west can redo where it breaks again what they signed and ratified as agreement ? Until the west regain it’s credibility in diplomatic realm there would be no significant treaty that can be hold as agreement with them and especially so about what’s mattered in national security.
          The west have to be committed to
          1) Restart and empower it’s diplomatic mission (not some belligerent threat, blackmail, or extortion like they do nowadays but something about mutual benefit)
          2)Cut back foreign policy centered around hostile action especially it’s bloody military projection
          3) stop propagandize, fake news, , hoaxes and restore it’s journalism quality.
          These three only for country that not yet hostile against them. They’ll have to do even harder to those that perceived them as hostile.

      What is it about this statement that you don’t understand? Syria has 20 Mig 29s, 48 S-200 launchers, 28 Buk launchers and up to 90 Pantsir units, along with a lot of other air defense systems. They can take down Israeli and US coallition aircraft anytime that they like, with the possible exception of stealth aircraft under some circumstances.

      S-300s would be a fractional improvement in some circumstances if used. But under most circumstances would not be used with the current rules of engagement. They’re not a magic cure that would stop Israeli attacks, because unless the rules of engagement change, they wouldn’t be used. So they would have little if any effect on the course of the war up to this date.

            Thats NOT what they are getting – Iran is the final power broker – it is they who brought Russia into Syria AFTER consulting with Assad. Whatever happens in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon happens with Iranian consent only. Soleimani is the defacto ruler of the Iraqi-Syrian-Lebanese Iranian superstate (and Israel wants to assasinate hime – Why?). Iran got what no Western power, least of all israel thought was capable – a contiguous state all the way from Tehran to the Meditterranean – and Iran right on Israel’s border. So in a way, Russia and Iran are as much allies as they are geopolitical rivals in the region – Russia needs a stable Iran on it Southern borders – someone it can count on. Israel , Saudi and the West are the losers in this big geopolitical game which started out in the late 1990’s as US – the only superpower on the verge of total world hegemony – well, that is no more the case – All Israel and the west wins are the the PR battles – the real battles and the little wars are all lost to Iran, Russia and Hizbollah. Assad and Iran will eventually eject the US , France and UK from Syria, all in good time. Iran is a regional power thanks to the US overthrow of Saddam – the Yanks are fucking idiots – they shot themselves in the foot and set the stage for the eventual demise of Israel. Iran knows that regional stability and economic prosperity so missed by the people of the region can only be guaranteed by a middle east free of Israel and the West – and THAT is what they are fighting for.The French, English and US presence will be exterminated by Assads proxies as soon as the little fires that the Western terrorists are causing have been extinguished (Iran created the worlds best fighting force – Hizbollah – they can repeat the excercise in eastern Syria too…). Assad will not rest until the occupied Golan is back in Syrian hands – So all in all, Israel is FUCKED.

      As Dr. Paul Craig Roberts has accurately described Russia as a vassal inferior state and set for Yugoslav style implosion, there was never any doubt that Russia would ever supply Syria with any advanced weapons. Putin is corrupt to the core and has been on CIA payroll since he was a low level KGB officer in Dresden. Russia is using Syria to implant itself on the Mediterranean and act as a “major power”, but in reality doing Zionist bidding. Russians are not well like anywhere or have any friends. Average Syrian has no respect for Russia and can see through Putin’s hypocrisy and subservience to Zionists. Russia has played the dumb Arabs since USSR when it supplied third grade weapons to Syria, Iraq and Egypt, who lost all successive wars. Arabs need to wake up.

      The right tíme for s300 deployment will be after all terrorist pockets are cleared and an multilayer air defense can be built on secured areas around Damascus and other towns and military based. Deployment s300 on the battelfield in this time were too risky. You cannot fight terrorists and Israel simultaneously. Israel know it and uses all possible tricks to start war also under pretex of fighting Iran presence in Syria. Syrian army need at first gain ability to stop and destroy all missiles fired on their teritory with Pancir and Tor systems and thereafter can they deploy s300. S300 is not a perpetum mobile, it need be also guarded by other compliant air defense systems with skilled servicemen.

      • gustavo

        Yes, it seems to me that that would be the right time. Thanks, good observation.

      • Prince Myshkin

        This multi layered approach is indeed necessary. You cannot guarantee a 100% anti missile shield though. The latest attack by Israel which was preceded by the media psyop of ‘Muh Iranians’ and Bibi showing off his collection of kiddie murdering VCD’s (what a charade that was) along with the withdrawal from the Iranian sanctions deal (more crowing about ‘muh Iranians’) gave the soft salve to the Western MSM about the necessity of the attack on ‘Iranian Bases’.

        The real intention was the again the erosion of Syrian air defence capability. The frequency and intensity of these attacks has been accelerated since the end of last year by the Israeli Govt. in a glaringly obvious attempt to dismantle this multi layered platform which is crucial for a response against an all out assault.
        The S300 would be an Ace card for Syria but only when she has achieved optimum stability and can provide all the layers to support this platform. Until then Syria realistically ‘has all it needs’

      Because Israel is, unfortunately, a nuclear power.. So they more or less get equal standing at the negotiation table as Russia. That doesn’t necessarily mean that getting those Sam’s in is impossible,it just would have to be done on the sneak tip. But as of today, Syrian army is liberating their country, Saudi /Israeli /nato backed jihadis packing up and moving out in green buses. These airstrikes, although deadly and illegal, are not changing anything tactically. So until that changes then Russia will continue to let Israel have its fun. In the end they will loose regardless

          At this point the best thing to do is to regain the rest of the territory and convince Russia to maintain large military presence afterward to unsure security from any future invasions(wont be to hard i think). The time to negotiate pipelines ended before 2011 already, i don’t see them going back…

  • bvgp

    I think that the growing number of tens of thousands of Palestinian forces Liwa Al Quds is considered a growing threat to Israel. Yes, Golan Heights is not Israeli but Quds fired those rockets at IDF in the Golan Heights and maybe now is not the time to be doing that, De Escalation of current conflicts is far too important. It’s not the right time for Syria to be declaring War on Israel over the Golan Heights. And they have lost out on the S-300’s as a result. The Israeli strikes on Syria were retaliation for those Strikes in Golan and on TASS News website it states that Israel warned Russia of those retaliation strikes before they happened under the official agreement between both Countries. I don’t think now is the time to be making war on Israel over Golan either. It was a bad move all around.

    • AJ

      Israel started this incident the Israeli military conducted a number of artillery strikes against a Syrian Army post in Khan Arnabea which led to SAA returning fire by firing a number of mortars against the source of Israeli fire.

I think actually that is why Israel has targeted the Gazans. It’s to PROVOKE and instead of relying on International efforts in International Law the Quds have been successfully PROVOKED and decided to launch rocket attacks on Golan. When will everyone learn? Attacks on Palestinians in the occupied Territories is always done for 2 reasons:

    1) To distract attention from other things Zionists are doing or are about to do and
    2) To Provoke for the ultimate GAIN of the Zionists.

    S-300 sale to Syria is a major leverage Russia holds in its hands against the Anglo-Zionist West. It is unlikely to play that card unless it is really pushed into a corner. The threat of S-300 sale to Syria is enough to deter an all out attack on Syria by the West.

    For those who feel very disappointed about this news, I encourage you to watch this interview from yesterday, the interviewer reveals a lot of details about the latest Israeli attack that we are unaware of. While it is impossible to confirm everything she says, she is a trustworthy source:

        But this S400 is already present to defend Russian base and that covers a lot of area:

          We are talking about Assads possibilities to defend Syria by himself. The S-400 are only to protect Russias interests.

        • potcracker2588

          the S-400 covers all of Syria, and Israel, Lebanon, parts of Jordan and parts of iraq…..400 km radius

          • Tommy Jensen

            Nobody seem to bother what they covers in a cartoon book. Everybody, US/Israel/ISIS/Turkey/France are bombing when and where they like in Syria.

      What a beautiful message. Wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I who was once an Israeli-US supporter am so happy to see the end of the Zionist murderous, plundering, child killing machine brought to an end. I do hope that the Syrians have prepared the noose to fit about the evil neck of Netanyahoo-and his piggish buddy, Donald Duck. Long live Palestine, Gaza and the great, brave warriors of the Syrian Army who has taken on all foreign mad men who dares steal their beautiful country. Worry Donald Duck because your evil pal, that vulgar,disgusting blob of flesh called Nitanyahoo is about to have his quacking ended. The US, France, and Little England, all former slave and trade empires are about to have their asses kicked. It seems once an empire always wanting to be–and that spells the end of such blood-letting bastards.

      It is my belief, as far Mr Putin is concerned, that he is playing a game of chess–and he will win. He is more than a match for all those lying, corrupted political useless bastards that have sold lock, stock and barrel to the Zionist regime. And one might ask: what does a fool profit if he gains all the gold, silver, and jewels and loses his soul in the mess of vanity?
      They are so dirt ignorant. If they only opened their eyes to see that what they sow so shall they reap. A beggar, anywhere in the world, with no home, no food, no friends is far off better off than any one of those war mongering, money making bastards because what goes around comes around. It is an eternal law..

      • BMWA1

        Sounds like a sensible solution in Syria MUST involve Lebanon too.

        • Thomas Wolsey

          Sensible solution in Syria is not bring nothing of value near of lebanon border.
          The army should move valuable stuff to aleppo or deir ez-zor away from Israeli range.

      • potcracker2588

        yes they can…positioned in west syria (S-300 92km radius)..covers even parts of israel and Lebanon…….Damascus..is 15km from lebanon border…..Israel 50 km

      In Marc 1948, a Joint Chiefs of Staff paper on “Force Requirements for Palestine”, predicted that the “Zionist strategy will seek to involve the [United States] in a continuously widening and deepening series of operations intended to secure maximum Jewish objectives. The JCS listed the objectives as (a) initial Jewish sovereignty over a portion of Palestine, (b) acceptance by the great powers of the right to unlimited immigration, (c) the extension of Jewish sovereignty over all of Palestine,(d) the expansion of “Eretz Israel” into Transjordan and into portions of Lebanon and Syria, and (e) the establishment of Jewish military and economy hegemony over the entire Middle East.

    Israel is more important to Russia than Syria afterall 1.5 m people in Israel are Russian Jews. Russia is only interested in its bases in Syria and protecting their assets or may be they are not using S300 and S 400 because they do not work. Isreal pleases itself and Russia just looks on.

    • D boy

      Tell America to bomb Russia arm forces and see if s400 works !

        You tell the Russian to test them against American bulit jets who attacked Syria many times . May be they are frieghtened or Russia does not want to upset the Zionist Apartheid regime.

      • Taz T

        They have bombed Russian mercenaries and how come these S400 are never used against Israeli aggression and never been used to see how effective they are. Russia is more interested to look after its own interest like everyone else. Quite a few of Russian Oligarch and friends of Putin are Jewish.

  • Albano Pina

    I cannot believe my eyes ! From night to day, Putin, the former hero, becomes the present villain !
    What’s the matter with you people ?
    Dont your remember Donbass 2015, when you where screaming treason because Russia kept away but, in the end, it hadn’t ? Dont you remember the russian fighter plane shot by the Turks only to see, some year and a half later, Russia save Erdogan from a coup ?
    Russia has a tiny military force in Syria that, in spite of its tremendous sucess, has deep military and political limitations; didn’t you see the helicopter, the jet and the syrian pantsir being blown off ?
    Do you want the Russians to respond, so risking an escalation that could easily go nuclear ?
    It has always been clear that the Syrian war would be a shadows kabuki, half fought, half manouvered.
    Do you, for one second, doubt that all the actors, including the sirians and the iranians, have, since the beginning, understood and accepted the bitter rules of the game ?
    Welcome to the real world. For good or bad, Israel and the KSA are going nowhere and, besides, the only admissible goal for a military intervention of the kind we have seen in Syria is (guess what ?) POLITICAL NEGOTIATION with, at least, Turkey, Iran, Israel and the KSA.
    And let me remind all of you that are writing your outrage from your comfortable home seats in the USA or Western Europe: where you intervening in your countrie’s political process against the empire ?
    Did you go to the streets to support Russia when Russia stood almost alone, for all these years, against the empire attacks ?
    No ? So give me a break !
    Russian must, above all, protect its nacional interest. If you want them to also protect your national interest, you are no better than the Israelis you so criticise, when they ask the same form the americans,

      Maybe you must remember a USA senator declaration saying that next time terrorists will be in Russia (that is why Israel-USA translate ISIS to Afghanistan) , and who are supporting these terrorists ? Of course, Israel-USA-NATO (mainly) with Qatar, Saudis, Jordan and Turkey. So, for Russia national interest, terrorists must be stop totally in Syria with their supporters. This is clear for me, and I sure it is clear for Russia.

    • Turbofan

      Wow.. You are so blind that it hasnt dawned on you that by Russia allowing the SAA to be constantly attacked by Israel it is only making Russias job in Syria more difficult. No one has mentioned Russia going to war with Israel or the US but Russia providing Syria with a proper air defense system to defend itself is the bare minimum a country can do for an ally.
      One must remember this is not a one sided partnership.Russia isnt just saving Syria but itself too. Damascus collapses and suddenly there is a pipeline route for Qatari gas into Europe kicking Russia off the market and breaking its economy.
      Most of the points you have brought up there are just rehearsed nonsense seen all over the web by people pretending to have the interest of the Syrian people at heart.

      Noone is asking Russians to die on the front lines against Israel. But they should give them some s-300 or even s-400 air defence systems to protect their ally at least against Israeli aggresion.

    Didn’t think Russia would supply S300 or even defend Syria verbally. Maybe Assad should just let the US and coalition with the terrorists and Israel have Syria. Maybe then Russia will have an attitude adjustment when they can lose their bases and then access to the Med. NATO will be happy also. Poor show from Putin, he should have at least deported Bibi the minute he attacked Syria and insulting Russia.

    • velociraptor

      I wrote several times: assad made a mistake whne trusted ruskies. He had to allow the qatr piplenie, cooperate with all countries around syria and not let in iranians there would be no civil war. but assad is not stateman, he is only dictor. he is wrong for that position.

          They will oblige on their own terms and their own time. Playing in a field your enemies have prepared to drag you in, it is the worst response, a highly emotional person can act on. And that is the globalist ways because their main objective is to destroy, steal and enslave, in order to dominate.

          Now think what Russia from the mouth of Putin said want to achieve and you get a clearer picture. Now if he back up from his objective and play along for join domination that is left to be seen.

  • χρηστος

    i think what Russia is doing is trying not to provoke the Israelis. Russia knows that Israel needs minor excuse to launch massive air-strikes to SYria thus undermining the effort against terrorists. So they try not to provoke them.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      I dont think so. What Russia dont want is not to not provoke israel, but not to play into the hands of western stooges and start a WW3 something they beg for it and been asking since they organized georgia with the help of the israelis and ukrainians.

      When he is ready for what is coming then russia will react. Also unlike the expendable goyims that are either the mercenaries or the armies NATO has, russians dont think like west. This war is coming will not be fought either with S300 or with boots on the ground, but with a sudden hit by either side and will not last more than a day or two.

Yo have no idea as to what Mr Putin is doing but you can bet he ain’t on the side of the US or Israel. He really knows how to play chess–and his opponents are mere amateurs . . . if that.

    • Raptar Driver

      I am not so sure anymore (about the Putin government) but belief in a savior can blind one from the truth.

    • velociraptor

      putin is shit chess player. and politics, mainly the international is much, much more than chess.

      putin is begging for mercy. the last sanctions, which block his oligarchs are real pain in hos ass. he is only one puppet of oligarchs. and if the oligarchs have problem, putin will fall.

  • Luutzen

    Russia should have supplied them a year ago.

  • Xanatos

    I can think two likely scenarios how Putin agreed to Israel’s request.

    A) Israel has shown they can defeat the s300 and Russia must bow down and acknowledge superior strength of Israel
    B) Israel made a promise, this is the last air strike. As long as Russia does not sell the s300, and Iran does not retaliate, then this is the last airstrike on Syria.

    I think Putin is afraid A might be true. He would be a fool too believe B.

    The real question is, how many air defense and aircraft did Syria actually lose in this “anti Iran”attack? And will Russia ever replace any planes?

  • Smaug

    I’d hate to say I told you so, but I totally predicted this. The Russians don’t want to expand the war so they want give Assad enough firepower to cause overconfidence in Damascus or cause panic in Washington or Tel-Aviv. Hence they only replace what was spent during the last US missile strike.

  • Murf

    Smart!
    Getting your much ballyhooed SAM system trashed by Israel is not good for weapon sales.

  • Fatime Oomyadin

    Do we need any more proof that Putin (NOT RUSSIA!) has abandoned (to say the very least) Syria for ensuring his deals with his “western partners”? When will the Putinists wake up, before or after NATO bombs will rain down on russian children?

  • Fatime Oomyadin

    Syria is now no longe rbound to any kind of obligations towards Russia, as Russia blatantly breaks its treaties. Syria can easily get chinese sophisticated air defense weaponry and enhance her ties and cooperations with China instead with the treacherous Kremlin.

    • Superfly

      Even the Chinese are fed up with Russia and have started duplicating and improving the third rate Russian weapons they bought at inflated prices. Read about the new Chinese J-16, a much improved version of Russian SU-35 junk. We all know about the worthless S-400.

  • frankly

    Putin says they have all they need. Let’s revisit here in two weeks. My guess is all these loudmouths will be gone back into their portal potties and the Syrian victories will continue to roll in.

    • Superfly

      Thanks to SAA, Iran, Hezbollah and the brave Shia who are fighting with tenacity while Russia is providing intel to the Zionist scum.

      • frankly

        Not having a sober moment here are you? There is no semblance of logic to you and all the other raving lunatics. Why come into the country at all if you are not a long time ally of Syria. Russia fights for Syria, not against her.

  • jason ellis

    My guess is that Russia already has delivered them. Remember that truth is the first casualty of war. Think about it, how would anyone but the Syrians or Russians know? Currently all of the missiles are falling in Syrias boundaries, and apparently a lot if not most are being intercepted. This is just a ploy to give Israel a false sense of security.

  • Siegfried

    I’m not glad at all that I was right all this time.

    Now YOU can see it with your eyes: Like it was said in the last 2 centuries about the Perfidious Albion ==> “Russia has no friends, Russia has no enemies, Russia has only interests”.

    Very BRITISH, if I may say..

    And now I start to get scared about something more dirty than that: ” What if Putin just intervened there.. TO HAVE SOMETHING to trade with the West in exchange for Western step-back from sanctions, demonizing & the rest of that well-known anti-Russki-“program”?

    My doubts started with that stops & goes by ALEPPO January 2016. And as an ISRAELI drone killed that high-ranking Hezbollah -leader near Damascus, I saw that ISRAEL has free-hand there, thanks to PUTIN..
    Bibi was in Moscow by the 9-May Victory-Parade..
    https://www.jta.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/russia-march.jpg

    Now, even it hurts me to accept such “possibility”… let’s suppose now that Putin sells ASSAD and then IRAN.

    TURKEY AND SAUDI-ARABIA get S-400, one because it shot and killed one Russian pilot and the other one because it financed the CHECHEN -Islamists ( together with Boris Berezovski the Oligarch that hung himself in London) since Boris-Yeltsin..

    Well, maybe if somebody shoots Putin a nuke intothe Kremlin, gets half of the Red-Army equipment as thank-you..

    Syria and IRAN already paid the S-300 and the SU-30 MK , each 40 Billions US-dollars, for over 10 years ( in fact IRAN paid for both)

    This MUST BE something BIG that Netanyahu guarantied for Russia: maybe keeping the Syrian bases even without ASSAD, no sanctions, ISRAEL will pressure Trump to stop the sanctions ( a ROCKEFELLER-NWO-Connection maneuver initiated by the Obama-Crew already).. Maybe ROTHSCHILD, that wants his ALPHA-WOLF- position for him alone, and not fifty-fifty with the JUNIOR-Rockefeller after the OLD PYG David died =>> the Rothsichld-Clan is the “Gaius Maecenas of BOTH”, Bibi and Vladi and perhaps BROKERED this DEAL.

    What happens next in UKRAINE, will tell us if Putin was BS-ed by the USraelis.

    But no matter what, IRAN and Syria must be very disappointed. b And NOT only they..
    (With a little luck for the Free-World, USrael will try to BS Putin BEFORE Syria falls in the hands of Israel and its b@lls-lickers in NATO and the guy gets it in time… and finally starts to put at work his f*king S-400 there and to bring Syria the S-300 AT LEAST. They could be S-400 already

    Putin like by Sotheby’s : ” Who pays more?”:((..

  • goingbrokes

    If Russia is not going to supply S300 to Syria it is because a deal has been struck. This deal is about de-escalating the situation, which is always the best cause of action for ordinary people. The globalists are the only ones that truly believe that they benefit from escalating wars (while everyone else suffers). So I’m with Putin on this one. If the delivery of S300 would drive Israel mad and into escalation then it is better to make a deal: no S300 as long as you keep your missiles in their silos. Putin has always been good at putting the onus on the other party – you break the deal, you free my hands. Netanyahu at Moscow parade was looking with his own eyes at the very weapons that could destroy his career and dreams. That’s got to hurt. So a deal it was.
    Syrian government has had a string of important victories, and Damascus is virtually free of insurgents and foreign mercenaries. How is Putin betraying Syria? By not destroying Israel? Puhleez…
    Every day the plan of Eretz Yisrael is going down the drain – how is Putin helping Israel? Virtually everyone who said the fateful words “Assad must go!” is gone, and Assad is still there at the peak of his popularity. How is Putin betraying Assad?
    Israel is throwing tantrum missiles at imaginary enemies, and publishing BS grainy videos of drones being flown into Pantsir models, and we are supposed to take them seriously. Missiles are being intercepted, and videos are being exposed as hoaxes. The empire of lies is unravelling. Things could be a lot worse you know!

  • Eyesore

    The Vlad Strikes Again!…was never going to Putitin syria. haha

  • πανος

    Syria needs tor-m2,buk m-3 and Pantsir-S2.Small systems effective and easy to move around.
    S-300 are the last stage if u have all the others,otherwise its a big target

    And the question is who is paying?All these in total cost billions and Syrians dont have any money..Plus that u need to train people to all these systems..

    Check what is going on with Serbia which is great ally of Russia..They take old systems that still pay them!

    And this make sense as Russia doesnt have the budget to give for free weapons.
    Even Usa that gives for free it gives to Israel..

    All other allies of Us take for free only systems of 70’s and older which anyway cost more to american to keep them and not use them

  • AG Korvin

    You know what is the difference between Syria and israel? That a great number of Israeli citizens are Russian citizens as well. In the late 80s-early 90s millions noved from Russia to Israel.

  • The Farney Fontenoy

    Putin wants Syria just stable enough so his gas supplies to Europe aren’t threatened, he couldn’t give a toss if Assad stays or goes, and he’s not bothered how long the war continues either, it’s good advertising for Russian weapons, so let the war keep going & those bombs will sell themselves, it’s sheer self-interest on the part of Putin.

  • 888mladen .

  • Magnus La Magne

    WW3 would be terrible for everyone on the planet even the psychopaths in control know that. They want to milk the people as long as they can. Most of the weapons are developed for deterrence or for a proxy war, where adversaries ceremoniously hit each other at predetermined targets.
    Giving Syria S-300 would make Israel far to uncomfortable and may actually lead up to real fighting. It would disturb the power balance to much. China and Russia are slowly building forces so they can present the West with facts on the ground, water, air and space at a given time.
    Communication is key, one could argue the mess in the MIddle-East and World are pretty harmonious for human standards. Maybe we can avert WW3 all together and peacefully go from Unipolar to multi-polar. Maybe Netanyahu can bring Russia, US, Iran and China closer together.
    Positive encouragement can maybe even soften the heart of Netanyahu. Remember Jesus was also jewish,

  • Shhh

    It is obvious and can not be hidden. Putin says an attack against Russia can be meet with nuclear force. Then allows dozens attacks to Syria without providing S300 to Syria and appoint Medeved……….Capitalism/money crosses borders once glasnost occurred. Trotsky was right.

  • Faith Biate Fhg

    Israel is a tiny country, almost invisible from the World Map yet they control every powerful nations of planet earth. Putin is no exception. From Russia to US everyone’s under Jews.

  • Taz T

    Russia is not trustworthy, they are only interested in looking after themselves and their interests and assets as we have seen Israeli attack on Syrian immediately after Netanyahu met Putin! They are no diferent to American

  • Siegfried

    ” He also noted that the Syrian Arab Armed Forces have “all they need”.”

    Bibi Netanyahu assured the Russki diplomat that ASSAD has all he needs..
    Only the poor helpless TURKS and SAUDIS are defenseless and need S-400…

    S-400 !!!!!!!!!!! … Not S-300, but S-400 !!!!
    And now I’m almost sure that IRAN has all what it needs, too …..
    I start to be afraid that PUTIN went there to Syria, only to have something to trade in exchange for the sanctions-stopping and for the “welcome back to G8”-RAPTORS-Club.

  • John

    Eh, I think more Pantsir S2 units would actually be a better move.

  • come-and-take-it

    I believe Vlad is playing poker.

  • Rodney Loder

    We must remember that the Russians defected from the Soviet Union because the Christians believed Pope John Paula a real bitch he was 30 night, anyhow he lied the Russians worked that out and Putin saved Siberia from the US but it was close.

    So not to worry about the S300 deliveryman, he took a decade to keep his promise with Iran, probably the technological know how was included in the sale, so there’s no need for a delivery anyway.

  • Trut Tella

    Severely problematic.

    These Jewish scum need to be dealt with.

  • Wegan

    Let’s not jump to conclusion and also let’s not diminish the impact on how Russia is perceived.
    This is a blow to the Russian standing in the world. The Chinese are probably thinking they should not commit too much militarily with Russia, there is a credible possibility they might watch and not help while China is being attacked and not lift a finger. Hell they might invite the attacker for a family party and enjoy their company. Thi is one of the reasons they still diversify their energy purchase.

  • John Whitehot

    wonder why sf still hasn’t made an article where it explains how Syria isn’t in the condition to put S300s into service, and also that they haven’t requested them.

    Not mentioning that at this point, such supply, would have a deep geopolitical meaning, as it would signal that Russia expects the zionist war on Syria to last much more time than it is actually believed.

  • Vitex

    I think this is why bibi is all over Vlad at the moment. “Please, Vlad, me old cobber, don’t supply the bad, bad Syrians with S300s….” At the moment it suits Vlad to listen to bibi, but you can be sure he’s getting something out of the exchange. The threat of S300 deployment was probably a chess move to make sure Israel stays out of southern Syria.

  • When Russia delivers military stuff to Syria it delivers them – it doesn’t first waffle about … well … maybe we will maybe we won’t. So the maybe we will stuff was a message to Israel. Israel got the message and ever since Russia announced “no we won’t” Israel hasn’t bombed Syria again.

    But don’t expect it to last – Israel can barely remember what it did/said yesterday.

  • Russia knows if it does anything foolish like give S300 to Syria, nothing stops Israel in selling advanced anti-tank missile to Ukraine, now, those little green men would bleed red!

  • Rick Lee

    Al-Jazerra reported a few days ago:

    ===================

    The transfer of the S-300 to Syria is a “long-running saga,”
    according to Aron Lund, a fellow with The Century Foundation think-tank.

    “Russia has kept hinting that it will supply these missiles to
    Damascus since 2011, but never went through with it,” Lund said, even
    though with the two-week deadline, it is declaring much “louder and
    clearer” its intention to complete the transfer.

    “It’s basically been a pressure tactic on Russia’s part. They drop
    the S-300 back into the media whenever they feel the Israelis are not
    paying attention.”

    Similarly, Omar Kouch, a Syrian political analyst, noted that both
    the US – present in Syria’s northeastern region – and its closest ally
    Israel consider the delivery of this missile to the regime as “a significant escalation”.

    —————————-

    If Russia back-pedals on S-300 delivery they will be the laughing stock of the world.

    Furthermore areospacermen will be demoralized and think leadership does not care about their lives.

    I would have given Syria the S-400 systems and a few S-500 prototypes to put the fear of God into NATO.
