Major General Igor Konashenkov, a spokesman of the Ministry of Defense of Russia, revealed that Russian military advisers are still training personnel of the Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces (SyAADF) on the use of the advanced S-300 long-range air defense systems, which were delivered to Syria earlier this month.

“I suggest all hot-heads to step away from provocations and evaluate the situation in a logical manner,” Maj. Gen. Konashenkov said during a press briefing, according to the Russian news agency Sputnik.

The Russian MoD spokesman also revealed that the SyAADF personnel are training on the use of the advanced Polyana-D4M automated command and control system, which had never been exported before. The system serves as an upper level command post (CP) of air defense brigades and can command different types of systems, including S-300 and Buk.

Russia took the decision to supply Syria with these advanced systems following the downing of the Il-20 intelligence plane on September 17. According to the Russian MoD, these systems will improve the security of Russian service members in Syria.

    If the ‘hot-heads were to step away from provocations’, they would have no purpose in their lives.

    The israelian F35s flew around them several times yesterday trying to see if they were plastic or not.

    They are. Russians dont like friendly fire :)

    The training is repainting every year because of the many sandstorms…in 2019 they will simulate upgrading to S500 and next in 2020 it will be S600 and then there is no more paint.

    Russia = bunch of pussy liars. They know it was Syria’s Fault the IL-20 was shot down. If they through it was Israel’s fault they would have retaliated right away like they did when they shot down Turkish fighter. So either they are pussy or they are liar. or maybe both
