Russia Ships More Military Equipment To Syria (Photos)

Donate

On April 13, Russian Ro-Ro ship Alexandr Tkachenko was spotted carrying military equipment while crossing the Bosporus en route to the Syrian coastal city of Tartus. Photos of the ship taken by Turkish photographer Yoruk Isik revealed that it was carrying at least one Project 03160 Raptor high-speed patrol boat and several BMK-T bridge erection boats along with other military equipment.

The deployment of more BMK-T bridge erection boat to Syria may be a sign that Russia is planning to step up its military presence in the Syrian Arab Army (SAA)-held area on the eastern bank of the Euphrates river. Bridge erection boats of the same type were used by the SAA to cross Euphrates in late 2017.

The Russian military finished constructing a new 156 meters long bridge on the Euphrates river on April 11. This confirms that Russia is interested in protecting the SAA positions on the eastern bank of the river.

Alexandr Tkachenko was the second Russian ship to pass the Bosporus on April 13. Earlier, Alligator-class landing ship Nikolay Filchenkov of the Russian Navy was also spotted passing through the Bosporus on its way to Tartus. The ship was also loaded with military equipment.

Earlier Syrian sources expected that Russia may deploy more military equipment in Syria in response to the recent US actions aimed at escalating the situation in the region.

          But that’s not all. That was you, Americans (together with UK banksters) that funded Hitler into power. Nah, not you really, it was just you working on behalf of your masters as usual.

            How many soldiers were thrown at the Germans by the idiots over on the eastern front ? How much supplies and military hardware we sent to the Soviet Union by America ? Lol try harder

            Answer my question or shut up – how many German soldiers did US kill during WWII?

        • Joe

          Without Russia you would not even be able to land in Normandy …

          3 out of 4 German soldiers were killed by Russians at the sacrifice of millions of Russians and these dead soldiers were elite ones.

          Yet fighting against new conscript German soldiers US took so long to defeat them.

          • Vidura

            Without US Russian wouldn’t even have any hardware to fight with lol try harder

          • These sorts of plans are always underway. The question is how do they survive contact with the enemy? Lots of Empires have attempted world conquest. From Alexander to Genghis to Adolf. So far, none have succeeded.

        • Sinbad2

          Most US forces are stationed outside the USA. American forces in the ME and Europe are larger than Russia’s total military force.
          That’s why Russia will nuke the US, it’s the only way they can win, and they intend to win.

          • Daniel Castro

            Not if you count the reserves, russians have a very large reserve and people willing to fight for Russia, muricans have transgender sissies as population.

            US has very few combat troops in Europe. They could send SIGINT people or medics but no actual combat soldiers – US does not have too many of those overall

            About on order of 1 combat arms per 20 non combat but of the non grunts some are combat enginneers, armor maintenance, and combat support.

            Still no combat soldiers. Time for a draft in the US and bring all 18 year olds into the military with jail for refuseniks. Noone wants another generation like Bush, Trump, Cheney, Bolton, Clinton

            As an armature history buff, and a stric Constitutionalist the very idea of Consciption, (Draft) flies in the face of what ideals of Freedom, Liberty and sovereignty of the individual was meant to be. The very idea that a government can impress and deny personal liberty upon its citizens against their will is an abhorance. That citizens can be sent to war at the whim of a few, no matter the right or wrongness of the war, is a form of slavery.
            THE Conscription practices of those in power always had escape clauses that they of wealth could use.
            THE idea that just because Daddy says the military made a man out of them has caused the needless deaths and mutilation of hundreds of thousands of young men. It is also the tool used to make the police State and Fascist like militarism of today possible. That and the flag waving, “My country Right or Wrong” nationalism to replace patriotism screed is but one terrible indoctrination of American youth.
            Let’s old men send youths to kill or be killed while they stay home profiting off of their deaths.
            Freedom loving men and women of independent minds have always fought against conscription, and the herd of unthinking peoples that conformed to it.
            Conscription by Britain was one reason for Revolutionary and War of 1812 was fought over.

            I don’t disagree with you at all. I simply think it is time US started paying for its imperial military rather than using Deficit Funding and Mercenaries to beat up Third World countries. This is Imperialism. The great US line is to compare Russian GDP to USA well let’s try Syria $50 bn – just behind N Dakota

          • Peter Howes

            Get your facts right hamburger boy! The Russia army without its million man reservists is 850 thousand strong, all with modern equipment. US army is 1.2 million strong dispersed in 1000 military bases world wide. Russia has internal lines of supply via Iran (as does China via silk road rail/road complex). NATO is now just UK and France. Together they have less soldiers than Iran, not counting its islamic volunteers (whose sacrifice in the Iraq war stopped Hussain in his tracks). This force numbers over three million trained light infantry. Russia has other allies, most of the old Asian Soviet Republics and has mutual defence pacts with them. Add that to China with its standing army of 2.2 million troops plus 8 million trained first line reservists. So… who out numbers whom? Add to that Hezhollah (80,000), iraq and Syrian and Lebanese forces and it is the West that is screwed numerically. Why do you think Germany and Italy want no truck with a Russkie war? As for quality of soldiers… ask the Vietnamese about the Yankees. They had everything and the Viets little… save for two things; will to win and ready to die! The Yanks live for hamburgers and Pizza pie, a few tens of thousand casualties and they will ask for mummy and go home with their tail twix their running legs. Of course they can nuke everything and then watch their own cities burn soon after! So not much of an option there. Go back to sleep and try not to think too much as it might stretch your wonderful US education. Stop thinking when it makes your head hurt. Just like a good Yankee boy should!

            When Congress asked Pentagon how many men were actually active duyy, as the cost per man did not jibe with money spent, Pentagon just said ” Senators that is classified under National Security laws.
            Also throughout all of US Command post, look up Command centers, there are thousands of foreign troops integrated throughout their Theaters of Command..German, French, Finn, Nowegian. AUSTRALIAN, Canadian, Japanese, S Koreans, Taiwan, Phillipines and others all acting under Theater Command centers. PILOTS, drone operators, infantry, armor and even our Spec op units.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Main Russian supply lines are protected ones via Armenia and Iran. Iran’s large Hamadan base is now being jointly operated by Russo-Persian alliance.

          BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:40 A.M.) – According to media sources close to
          the Iranian government, Russian heavy bombers are once again permitted
          to operate from Iranian military airfields.

          Sources say that the development comes after an agreement was reached
          between between Russian and Iranian high-level military-diplomatic
          officials. It gives Russian bombers the right to transit Iranian
          airspace and use at least two large Iranian military airports for refueling.

          Although unsaid, the development is most
          likely a response to recent US threats against the Syrian military – a
          close ally of both nations – following an alleged chemical attack in
          rural Damascus.

          The information of development also comes after two Tu-95 and two
          Tu-22M heavy bombers were noted to have left their permanent base in
          Russia for an unknown destination. Iran is also beefing up its airforce assets on its western borders with close proximity to Syria.

          • Armenia has no border with Russia. Nor do they have a sea coast. Even if Georgia or Azerbaijan allowed overland shipment of arms, a Russia-Georgia/Azerbaijan-Armenia-Iran-Iraq-Contested eastern Syria route would be cumbersome and expensive at best…..As for Hamadan base being jointly operated, the last I heard about RuAF operating from Iran was that Tehran had ended it over nationalistic concerns. If you have a sourced update I will enjoy seeing it.

          • Valery Grigoryev

            Armenia actually has no border with Russia, but big Russian military base operates there in Gumry for many years. As the access from Russia to there is possible thru the Georgia only, It means that some agreement berween them exists, so no problem.

          • I thought Russia and Georgia were hostile over the Abkhazia and South Ossetia?

          • Ivan Freely

            re: RuAF operating from Iran

            The constraint is that it’s unconstitutional under Iranian law. Originally Tehran looked the other way, but Moscow got excited and started yapping, which alerted Iranian political opposition. However, given the way things are going, Iran may need to rethink that constitutional law.

          • Iran is still irked over the Mossadegh coup in 1953. Only a decade earlier UK and Russia occupied Iran in 1941. Russian troops continued the occupation after WW2 into 1946. So Iranian reticence is understandable.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Iran and Russia conducted a new deal with supplying more equipment for the usage at Hamadan airbase as the Russian envoys were making deals and shouting their message at the same time.

      • christianblood

        Russia and Iran should bring in tens of thousands of soldiers and their equipment to Syria as well more SAMs, more anti-ship missiles and even nuke-capable missiles. Russia and Iran should now prepare, prepare and prepare and turn Syria into a fortress. The EVIL, Satanic empire led by the U$ will not rest until they attack Syria with fabricated excuses and destroy it.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          I agree, it is time to take off the gloves. Russia and Iran are barely a few hundred kms from Syria and Iran has a direct land route via Iraq. It is time to saturate Syria with AD and ground troops and target US terrorist bases in eastern Euphrates. Iran and Russia have infinite manpower and easy supply lines. They can bleed the US morons to infinity.

          Several mig 31s would be a nice touch.

          • Sinbad2

            It seems that Russia is deploying TU95 and Tu22 bombers to Iran.

          • wwinsti

            Correct, trump just ordered sustained strikes on Syria, explosions reported outside demascus

        • Ted

          Why? The weapon is only talked about never used. Maybe when a Nato country like Turkey gets ahold of one we will see it fired? But I am sure after Turkey watches F16s and Tornados penetrate Syrian air space without a loss S400 wont have a long line of buyers

          • So far I’ve seen no reports of hostile aircraft in Syrian airspace, other than those acting east of Euphrates by agreement with RuAF. Since your assertion is untested it is as valuable as mine. Should you be proven correct, I will refund your full admission price.

    • TheLulzWarrior

      1) Trump openly threatens imminent action.
      2) Russia and Iran officially threatens to strike back. Meaning, the US have to openly involve itself into a real war, get action approved by Congress and so on. Mattis and some other level heads, that knows the deal, urges caution and this result in immediate conflict with neocon scums.
      3) Syrian and Russian forces increases readiness.
      4) Russia brings in more equipment.
      5) The Russian advantage that prevented outright action has increased even more. After a few days of discussions, the US finally backs down.
      6) Pro-war faction that had been pressuring Trump has been stumped. Bolton is eventually replaced.

      • christianblood

        As we speak, the empire of EVIL is already preparing the next false flag to demonize Russia and attack Syria. Just watch.

      • It’s a happier scenario than WW3!

      • Ted

        Only one problem with your list, I have yet to see any official statement from Russia about striking back?

    • Zarathustra

      They dont have money for sheets .

      • Keep laughing. Going into a fight while dismissing the foe as incompetent and inconsequential is always a recipe for victory! :D

        • Zarathustra

          It was serious comment. They really run out of sheets. They had to use them for the hundreds of dead russian cobtractors soldiers, and also for toilet paper.

          • I wonder if Mossad will invite trolls into the fallout bunkers? Likely not. In the post WW3 world internet and trolls will be obsolete!

          • Sinbad2

            Pet food maybe?

          • Zarathustra

            Internet was invented exactly for that case, to survive large scale attacks and disruptions of links. And because it is made in USA u can be sure it will work.

    Rusia tiene que colocar fuerza sobre todo en esta parte del territorio sirio y ahora porque si no lo hace ahora, después va ser difícil y los invasores estadounidenses e ingleses van adquirir el estatatus de dueños de esos lugares de Siria.

  • Joe Doe

    Russia needs to deliver 3 or 4 batteries S-400 to Syria Air Defense Forces. One should be located in T4 base this should cover also Deir Ezzor.. One in North of Damascus and one East of Damascus. SAA Tiger forces and National Gourd should receive VERBA MANPADs

    • Simon Abruzzo

      Russia should deploy bunch of s400 dummies all over the Syria.

    • You can call me Al

      Personally I would go for thousands of fake S-400 missiles, then when they come the Pantsirs can take them out – but at the expense of many a US missile.

      Let those inbreds run out of ammo first.

    • Zarathustra

      Lol S400 can be destoryed instantly. There is nothing russia can do against tomahawks and F-35s. S400 does not even have so much rockets to take care of all tomahawks. U r fucked.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Go away child and read some more American fairy tales.

        • Zarathustra

          Only airplane that was destroyed by S400 was the civil airliner over Ukraine.

          • zman

            the us shot 59 tomahawks at an airbase and that cost about 50 million dollars

          • Zarathustra

            50 mil that is nothing. Probably some old stock of tmhwks they needed to get rid of.

      • Ricky Miller

        Which is why the U.S. was going to attack, bigly and soon. But hasn’t. The Pentagon takes the S400 much more seriously than you do and your elementary trolling here about Russian military shipments to Syria demonstrates that you’re nervous. Take this to the bank: In a year Bashar al-Assad will still be Syria’s President. And there will be no more rebel pockets South or West of the Euphrates. And a slow boil insurgency will be in process everywhere the Americans still occupy with Trump approaching campaign season. Game. Set. Match.

        • Zarathustra

          I see other picture. Russian spring, putin lynched, finally democracy arrives in russia, russians will be free first time in history.

          • Ricky Miller

            Not at all likely and displays a serious dearth of understanding regarding Russian history and society. They will not go back to being fools, like Yeltsin era. They tried it USA’s way once and had multiple agreements violated, their economy raped, and “we won the cold war” endlessly rubbed in their face. You can’t buy everyone and holding one’s head high with pride means more to some people than all the cheap plastic junk modern commercialism offers. Or have you forgotten the three decade old American mantra that: Fidel. Castro. Will. Fall. Any. Minute. Now. Spoken JFK through Obama. Outcome?

          • Zarathustra

            I prefer to live in US or EU than some commie shithole.

          • Ricky Miller

            Really? You mean like here in Ohio where most of the high paying jobs have gone? People have to pay health insurance premiums equal to a second house for insurance that still costs us an arm and a leg when we go to the doctor? Housing prices have doubled and wages have remained flat. For most of us life in the USA isn’t what you’ve been told it is. It’s mostly corrupt with the Federal government taking the Lion’s share of the tax loot leaving state and local services miserly and wanting. For millions of people life is miserable here, we have nothing to believe in, our democracy and media are unreliable at best and our life span numbers are dropping as people kill themselves off with alcohol and opiates. But hey, wade on in.

          • Zarathustra

            This is the greatest thing about democracy and the USA – if u r not satisfied with for example health care, you can start your own insurance company or even an own hospital. If you think you can provide cheaper services and be competitive, then you can become also rich. It is your problem that you do not see the possibilities the country you live in has to offer you.

          • Ricky Miller

            The USA is not a democracy. It’s a Corporate Kleptocracy. It has a cosmetic veneer of democracy. And you don’t know what you’re talking about. I should not have to start a hospital or an insurance company to get decent, affordable health care for me and my family. I shouldn’t have to be a super capitalist engine of endless salesmanship in order to live a clean, fair, honest life with a decent income. Stop squinting in the bright and marketed American propaganda sunshine, look into the shaded alley and open your eyes to the nasty reality hiding there.

          • Zarathustra

            If you are not willing to do something about yoyr situation, then stop bitching about high prices. The insurance companies and doctors are happy with the situation probably. You should have become a doctor then.

          • zman

            what do you do other then post on this website in the pattern of a career troll? got any hobbies?

          • Zarathustra

            Yes.

          • Zarathustra

            If you think you can do it better, cheaper, it is your duty do do it. Those things do not happen on their own.

          • zman

            then why are you talking about russia like its any differant?

          • Zarathustra

            In russia if you start business you get extorted by state mafia, police criminals, corrupt justice system. Choosen people, friends of oligarchs, politicians can do whatever they want, other ppl are discriminated and terrotized. Russian manners.

      • Tudor Miron

        Tomohawks? With their current less than 0.5 hit probability as was proven last year? Sirian base was operational the very next day after that famous strike.

        • Zarathustra

          You lost half of your airplanes depliyed in Syria. Nice success.

            little lies from little ukreo hero :) go on.

            Nope. True.

    The more you squeeze an object the density of it increases i.e. it gets harder…You are squeezing Russia’s patience into a harden resolve. ..Remember you Americans hate seeing your children coming home in body bags especially for a lie..So contact your congress man and tell him to let the jackass know it is time to back to fxck off…

      This time it would not be about body bags coming home. It will be about disaster within american soil if they really want it that way.

    • Sinbad2

      They don’t care about voters, next election they will have candidates that say the things the people want to hear. After the election the next President/congress man will do the same as the last President/congress man.

      litle ruskie, this was agains wasting of time and money. focus yourself on russian cleptocracy. save your country, not the world.

      • Sinbad2

        You’re right, the yanks do control Iraq at a Government level, but the Americans are afraid to leave their fortified positions, because the Iraqi people have become very proficient at killing Americans.
        The Americans can’t thwart the will of the people in Iraq forever, and they will never submit like the Germans and Japanese did.

        • velociraptor

          sure, this night we saw, the yanks are cowards :DDDD

      • Daniel Castro

        If irak tries to stop russian planes they will bomb murican bases there and the iraqi population will finish the job, shias will overthrow the traitor muricans placed there with a pro-iranian government.

        • velociraptor

          russia is not in situation to do this. the whole nato would defend iraq.

    • Sinbad2

      You do of course realize that the end of Russia would also mean the end of the USA and Britain.
      Even if the US intercepts half of Russia’s nukes, the other half will wipe out every major city in the USA and wipe the UK off the map.
      It has been suggested, that totally destroying England, would be a good way to demonstrate to the US, that Russia is serious.

      • jerry hamilton

        Oh shit.

      • Zarathustra

        Zuma sattelite can jam russian nukes and take over controll, turning them back to where they came from. This is the technology that US has.

        • zman

          the russians will probably just try to cause a bunch of debris in space and then all satellites will be out of commission.

        • zman

          when you make threats to the existence of a nation that has nuclear weapons that is the only condition in which they would be used by that country..

        In your dreams bitch. US has systems which can destroy all incoming nukes.

  • Sinbad2

    It would be a lot cheaper to offer ISIS a hundred grand for every British French and American soldier they turn over to Russia.
    Put these soldiers on television, and tell the world who they are, where they live etc, and then announce they have been found guilty of terrorism and execute them.
    The press will show up on the widow’s doorstep, and some mother will cry to May to save my son.

      And Trump will tweet “Fake News” and all those idiots will believe him.

        No they will believe the tearful widows, Trump has lost a lot of the support he had among the people who voted for him.
        Check out the sites that were Trump supporters, like ZeroHedge, he is a deadman walking.

        • jerry hamilton

          Yes, I realise he has lost a lot of support but there are still a lot of lunatics left that seem to love him.

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    By any chance got any S-400 systems that are to actually be given to the SAA to operate their very own?
    Any major ground to ground missiles to give SAA to counter attack the Jewish attacks on the Syrian people?

    • Sinbad2

      There is a lot of misunderstanding about the S400. It’s more about it’s target acquisition capabilities than it’s missiles. All the targeting data can be transferred to other compatible systems.
      The Israeli planes could be targeted, but they fire their missiles from Lebanon. The US would twist the facts and say Russia was attacking Israel.

      • Real Anti-Racist Action

        I agree, however it seems to be that Israel and USSA twist all facts anyway with only goal being world conquest. (Control)
        No matter what the Jewish run press with demonize Russia and Syria just as they have to Iran, Vietnam, Germany, India, Ireland, Libya, Korea and on and on.
        It is past time for everyone to just unite as a collation of Nationalist, defeat all those trying to impose forced globalism.
        Then declare victory for all different people groups, and let the UK and France and Israel and NATO and UN burn to the ground.

    • Joe

      It is prudent for Russia to lease the S400 strictly under Syrian control.

      Then guaranteed US will not dare to be so arrogant towards Assad and Iran .
      because SAA will fire without hesitation to bring down US planes attacking them.
      But then Russia as usual will not do so as it hurts Israel , their friend .

      That’s why you do not hear Russia offering S400 to Syria or even Iran or Lebanon .
      Lebanon does not even have basic air defence …may be not even manpads lol.

    • Sinbad2

      Just watched Mattis say that they were only targeting the alleged poison gas sites, and it was a one off?
      He also said they used about twice as many missiles as last time. If that is true, and only a few missiles made it to Baghdad, it seems like the mission was a failure.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        destroying evidence is my guess.

    “We used a little over double the number of weapons this

    Syria needs more Point Defence Systems / CIWS because the mercenaries of the rootless cosmopolitans are trying to destroy the inrastructure with cruise missiles. Mobile and decentralized engaging systems like Pantsir, TOR, S-350, BUK are more effective than large S-300 sites.
