Russia is going to take additional measures to “cool down ‘hotheads’ and prevent misjudged actions posing a risk to our service [Russian] members”.
A few minutes ago Russian defense Minister Sergey Shoigu announced that a S-300 air defense system will be supplied to Syria within two weeks.
Furthermore, the Russian military will employ the following measures:
- Russian EW systems will supress communications, radars and satellite navigation of combat aviation involved in any attacks;
- Syrian Air Defense HQs will be equipped with better automated process-control systems, “which are only supplied to the Russian Armed Forces.” This will lead to a better integration of Syrian and Russian military assets operating in Syria and Syrian Air Defense Forces will have better targeting information.
The situation is developing.
