Russian Military: IL-20 Was Shot Down By Syrian S-200 Because Of Israeli F-16s Used It As Cover

A screenshot from the Russian Defense Ministry press briefing

On September 18, the Russian Defense Ministry revealed additional details on the IL-20 disappearance over the Mediterranean Sea last evening.

According to Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov, the plane was shot down by Syria’s S-200 air defense system because Israel’s F-16 fighters used it as a cover.

By using the Russian plane as a cover the Israeli air pilots made it vulnerable to Syrian air defense fire. As a result, the Ilyushin-20, its reflective surface being far greater than that of F-16, was downed by a missile launched with the S-200 system,” Konashenkov said. “The bombing raid was not far from France’s frigate The Auvergne and in close proximity to the UIyushin-20 plane of Russia’s Aerospace Force that was about to land.”

Konashenkov added that Israeli warplanes had been carrying out strikes in the area of Latakia and deliberately created a dangerous situation for surface ships and aircraft in that area. He added that Russia reserves the right to give a due response.

We see these provocative actions of Israel as hostile,” Konashenkov said. “Israel did not warn the command of the Russian troops in Syria about the planned operation. We received a notification via a hotline less than a minute before the strike, which did not allow the Russian aircraft to be directed to a safe zone.”

Israel’s Embassy in Moscow has refused to comment on the Russian statement on the IL-20 incident.

Meanwhile, Rusisan forces found the crash site of the downed IL-20. It’s located in the sea 27km west of the settlement of Banias, the province of Latakia. 8 vessels are participating in the search and rescue operation.

    Chaos really a big chaos from the damn Jewish regime. If Putin don’t respond now, he would be seen as a weak man.

    • 1691

      Calm down. Putin certainly knows what he is doing.

      • World_Eye

        I highly doubt it for this situation, at home in Russia maybe yes but here he has not strategy to do something, the history tells that.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          you are wrong. History tells exactly the opposite of what you concluded.

        • 1691

          If Russia was home as you state you should know that if it is not at home then it is not our problem. History is in the making now.

  • Gregory Casey

    If I were the Israelis, I’d draw a deep breath this morning, cross my fingers and hope against hope that Russia doesn’t use a big stick to retaliate!

    • The Farney Fontenoy

      Israel knows Russia won’t lift a finger, Russia answers to Israel not the other way around.

      Its well past time for payback for Czar Nicholas II and all other BS the Zionist have pulled on Russia

    • Trauma2000

      Russia should cancel EVERY Russian visa that all Russian Jews have. No return. No options. You moved to the promised land and the promises will soon evaporate… And seize all Jewish assets in Russia to ad to state revenue.

      • Sinbad2

        Russia should do this and Russia should do that, so many nobody’s who are smarter than the people who actually rule you.

        • Alpha&Omega

          Yeah, we see where Putin’s “smartness” and “wisdom”, as someone here also called it, took the Russian Il-20 crew and so many Syrians before them.
          We also know why they rule us. Very few good leaders opposing Israeli aggression and quest for world dominance exists today, and Putin is obviously not one of them.

          • peacelover

            Real problem is balance of power in conventional world war,which doesn’t exist. Control ur emotions. Calm down! Time will come as u wish and u will see! I wonder how desperate u Russians, but shouldn’t. I m from Pakistan and still love Russia and Putin bcz of his wisdom , maturity and love for Peace.

          Stupid nuts with Syrian dying for Russia , Russia is finished already from economic collapse.

          No oil to EU or Turkey.

            you are a retard if you think Russia is economecly in troble xD

        Why don’t you pose this question to your masters?

      • Sinbad2

        Who knows, but Russia will continue to block the American pipeline.
        If the US had not stopped South Stream, I doubt Russia would have stopped the Qatar Turkey pipeline.
        Russia is happy to have competition in the European gas market, so is Iran.
        But the US demands a monopoly, and it’s about the US holding Europe, and in particular Germany to ransom.

      • Elisabeth Jenders

        How many Syrians and Russians would have to die if Nato / US Coalition were given a reason to attack?
        How many people would have to die in a World war?

        A LOT MORE!

        • peacelover

          Well said. But some retaliation is needed in term of giving Syria S-300.

          • Elisabeth Jenders

            Isn’t the saying “Revenge is a dish that is best served cold”? Wait till the right moment comes and then hit where it really hurts.

          • peacelover

            So right

        • Ma_Laoshi

          This enemy wants to be rid of Assad, and chase the Russkies out of the Middle East, which they see as their own rightful property. If you don’t want those, you should give the enemy a reason NOT to attack. Putin is not the man to do it.

      • peacelover

        Sometimes patient works better than emotional wars

    • Alpha&Omega

      We will see about that.

      Making a deal with Erdogan on the expenses of the Syrians and Iranians to avoid an
      attack, but just hours later get attacked and lose a significant number of Russian military personal cannot be considered wise.
      Instead it signals weakness. Just look at the faces of Lavrov and Shoigu and at the press conference. They showed a mixture of frustration and despair, something never seen before. Even after bending backwards for the treasures Erdogan to primary avoid an attack, it followed with even more humiliation for the Russians.
      This was of course deliberately done by the israelis, which are the not so hidden but primary driving force behind the war on Syria.

  • SvenBolin

        I think he meant that it’s time to make Israel bleed for a change.

    Would they not have known the Russian’s were in the area? Sounds like an unfortunate accident. I hope the Russian’s in the plane are ok. (I just got the news)

    • World_Eye

      Really mate, the Plane is been shot with S-200 missile, and you hope that the Russians in the plane are ok, cmon mate, they are all dead 14 of them, they cannot even still find the wreak.

    • Gregory Casey

      You may take it that all of the Russians are dead. The Israelis used the Russian Plane as cover and hid behind it ……. the Russian Plane was not a ‘Fighter-Jet’

      • James

        Wishful thinking I guess.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      SAA has all Russian call signs and transponder details, of all friendlies flying in its airspace. The only way syrians would have shot it down, will be intentional. I dont buy the story that started in western mass media and picked up by the RT and other news russian media.

      When a target is locked, the missile will not hit a friendly plane, that is been recognized as friendly.

      • World_Eye

        LOL

      • Daniel Miller

        you are a fucking retard the Russian MOD said that it was shot down by a S-200. Your ignorance of weapons technology is showing.
        The SAA are idiots unproffesional idiots who used the S-200 in airspace they knew Russian aircarft are in. Let me elaborate the S-200 is not a modern system its late 50’s and early to mid 60’s tech it still uses vacum tubes and also cant see transponder signals (the S-200D can but only Russia had it and its now out of service) the SAA are morons for launching those S-200’s since the missiles lock on to the biggest target around (and a IL-20 is a massive 4 engine turbo prop) i need you to keep in mind this is a 1960’s era system its not new it dosent have a friend or foe ID system and before you say no you cant connect it to a S300 or S400 radar it uses very old electronics technology (it still uses vacum tubes).

        • Sinbad2

          Thank you, you took the words right out of my mouth.

          • Daniel Miller

            Not a problem look i dont think the IAF is innocent but i think the SAA is alos to blame for this. Russia needs to punish both.

          • peacelover

            But Russia is punished

        • Gregory Casey

          While all of this may be true the fact is that Israel objected to Russia supplying S-300 or S-400 to Syria and Putin decided not to supply them. THAT was the decision that led to this.

          • Daniel Miller

            not really Russia desided it wont give the S-300 its too expensive and the SAA can bearly operate that museum pice the S-200 propperly let alone a S300.

          • Joe Kerr

            Why do you think the IAF F-16s hid behind the il-20? Was it because the SAA already used this “museum piece” to down an F-16? Anyway, the SAA can be trained as well as anyone on how to use an S-300.

          • Daniel Miller

            i never said the S-200 cant shoot down aircraft but its so old that it cant destinguishe between enemy and none enemy aircraft.
            Also no arabs have a track record of not careing about their systems look at Iraq and Sauid arabia and Syria before 2011 90% of their equipment was neglected not to mention they dont know how to propperly use half of it.The simple fact that this happened is proof of my point.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          fucking retard is who did not jerk you off, pussy lips

          • Daniel Miller

            as expected your reply is very well constructed xD plz never again talk about something you do not know since weapons tech is far more complecated then a blind hatred for Israel or the US ;)

      • Ronald

        I don’t buy this story either, I think its a cover story for a huge French Error.
        Six hours ago RT said that at 2300 the plane was hit, and just moments earlier a French ship had fired missiles.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          I really could care less if you buying or not, since I am not selling anything.

  • Gregory Casey

    In hiding behind the Russian plane, the Israeli F-16 and its command knew full well that because of the nature of the Russian plane, it was far more likely to draw any incoming missile strike to it and to deflect it away from the Israeli flight that was the target of the S-200 missile. THAT is an Act of War.

    • Aurelian

      I Feel it is an act of war, a real slap in the face considering Putin has bent over backwards for the Israelis.
      I feel the should Move in a lot more anti-air,anti-missile forces keep trying to blunt the attacks the best they can, or they can escalate and start shooting down IAF Aircraft so far Putin as escaped being dragged in to upping the Ante.
      Just feel this time he has got to see this as a step to far.

      • Kenneth Hammond

        As always the zionist show their treachery, they can never be trusted to abide by their own undertakings, Russia reserves the right to inflict the maximum retribution for Israel’s act of treachery.

        • Alpha&Omega

          Time is now past “reserves the right to” or other verbal non-actions, since
          this was not about putting “Russian servicemen and women in harm’s
          way”, it was Israel coldly calculating and effectuating the mass murder of
          Russian citizens. Time has come to strike back.
          If not, Putin and Moscow will lose all credibility and respect from both allies and
          foes alike. There is no margin for chess play left. Putin has to act or die
          politically along with Russian politically and military standing on the world
          scene.

          We don’t say this lightly, something those following our comments before can confirm.

        • Sam Litvin

          And how do you feel about Russian actions in Ukraine, Chechnya, Georgia and the downing of the Dutch civilian plane? Israel using a Russian plane to bomb Iranian targets is evil, but Russian use of their planes to bomb and kill hundreds of thousands of Syrians is no problem? Do you really care about Russians and Syrians? Seems like you just hate Israel aka Jews.

          • Joe Kerr

            For a reason to despise Jews, just a quick glance at the tripe posted by you and your ilk will suffice.

          • Sam Litvin

            And what is your nationality? I mean by same rationality I should hate all people who share your genetic code.

          • zman

            If you’re Jewish, you do. Goyim?

          • Sam Litvin

            the translation of the word Goim is foreigner. I know lots of Goyim from 45 countries I visited who are decent people. You hate all Jews based on the few you don’t like, for reasons I don’t understand. So I would like to do as you do. But I would like to be as specific as possible. So what country are you from. Lots of countries in the world that are not antisemitic, but if you judge all Jews by what you think of me, I think it is fair for me to judge all people who are as close to you as possible. So where are you from, so I can hate all people who are like you. I am upfront about being Jewish, why are you afraid to state who you are?

          • zman

            I know what the fuck the translation is, I also know Jews use it as a term of derision…like the word chattel, right? Yes, I know this because I have jewish relatives…I should say HAD, because my sister came to her senses after being treated like a second class citizen. I worked for him and found it out for myself. But I don’t hate all Jews, just the sick ass Zionist bastards in Israel and the ones who have fucked me over. I’m American and we get to see first hand what the dual citizens have done to this country, in collusion with Zionist so-called Christians. Get this, I could give a rats ass about what you think of me…and I don’t give a shit about you personally. But I dare say that if every Zionist (Jew or not) died tomorrow, there would be a lot more peace on this blue ball. Oh, and you can take your semantics and word games and shove them, I tired of that ploy years ago. My ex-brother in law clued me in on that shit, probably the only thing he taught me of any value.

          • Val Shadowhawk

            Good comments. I feel the same way!

          • Sam Litvin

            You’re totally right. SOME Jews do use Goyim as a derogatory term. Most do not. So I guess I should hate all Americans because SOME Americans have derogatory words for Asians, Black people, Latinos, Gays, and women. You should too, but I don’t expect you to have the rational understanding that given your sample size of Jews and Zionist (Zionist original definition simply means ethnic Jews come from Israel and should have a homeland as any European). So if you hate any person who happens to have a derogatory term for someone, you should hate yourself. If you hate any people who feel that they deserve a place and a country, you should hate yourself, because Americans live on stolen land that they don’t even come from. But I suspect that is why you hate Jews and Zionists, you actually don’t really like yourself and so you need someone to take the hate of yourself out on. I don’t care that you don’t care about me, don’t care if you cared about me either. I just go on doing my thing, even if the things I do better you, like all of my engineering projects in US, some of which are bettering you today without you knowing it, like a “parasite”. Some things you do, might be bettering me, it’s the world we live in. I know you won’t listen to me, but if you did, I would say, hate and judgement of one person is bad on you as a person, they drain you. Hating a whole entire race of people because of those individuals, is even worse. It closes off relationships and drains your energy and wont make you like yourself any more. I know you won’t listen to this because you hate me as I am one of those dual citizenship American/Israelis who is a Zionist, but if you did, that is what I’d say. Because even though you are an American and Americans have derogatory terms for various people, I don’t hate you.. it’s a waste of my energy when instead, I can create and be successful.

            might as well, we are responsible for banking but also killing bankers with 9-11. We are responsible for Capitalist world order and for Communism. We are responsible for controlling the world and for being really bad at controlling it because we sure do get killed a lot. We are responsible for the worlds religions but somehow we are also not Christian even though Jesus was a Jew and a rabbi and thus basis of Christianity is Judaism. We are hated for living in the countries around the world but also hated for trying to create Israel to live in. Whatever man, we have been killed so much and yet every empire that tries to take us out is taken out, from Assyrians and Babylonians to Romans, Ottomans to Germans. We will survive, no matter how much you blame all of us for whatever crimes you choose to blame us instead of doing the hard work and actually figuring out what’s going on. To learn the cause and effect of a complex world is hard, why do that when you can just blame me, a Master’s student studying bats, for all of the world’s evil. Makes sense.

      re: ‘the Russian plane, it was far more likely to draw any incoming missile [fire].’

      The IsraHelli’s deliberately had the Russian plane targeted by nature of their actions. Yes, that is an act of war… an act of war against someone it was NOT at war with. Payback should be painful. Syria’s Golan Heights come to mind.

    • Icarus Tanović

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Most countries have IFF systems, especially for their own aircraft, Russians are so primitive that their most advanced ELINT IL-20 could not detect a combat stick of 4 F-16 at 20,000 feet hard deck then they deserve to be shot down. And most importantly all NATO AWACS are covered by a fighter CAP escort. Where were the Russian SU-35? sleeping like the dud S-400?

  • Promitheas Apollonious

    The claim of friendly fire is ridiculous since Russian and Syrian defences are meshed, the ELINT would appear as friendly on their radars. I dont buy it, that the S200 downed a russian friendly plane.

    • χρηστος

      my guess is electronic warfare…..the s-200 saw the Russian plane as enemy. or even simpler…..it didnt avoid the plane that was on its track….the Russians said that…..could be as simple as that…the missile was chasing them……they confused it and hit the Russian aircraft

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        k let me explain you and if you know any one who has knowledge and did service in radars and antiaircraft batteries ask him and he explain you why is not possible what they claim happen happened.

        To shadow a plane as that one, first the crew will know is been shadowed. Even with their transponders, shut down, still the radars see them and mark them as hostile.

        The official version you read all over the news is mean to avoid open conflict and because 99.9% of the population has no idea and will believe what ever they read, in which ever media out let is their preference and take it as matter of fact.

        Imagine to be at war 200-300 planes to be in the air and you shooting down your own planes, with missiles that are designed to exactly not do that.

        • Sinbad2

          So if this is so fool proof, why did the US Patriot missiles shoot down 2 RAF fighters that were assisting the US to invade Iraq?

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            Nothing man made is full proof. I just know how the systems work and also that all missile batteries in syria are connected to the russian systems.

            And since all of you are suddenly so smart and well informed answer me this. The plane is been shoot down works as an AWACS and to track down submarines. Explain me why the plane radars did not let the crew know they was there since to shadow a plane and not give your signature in radars means to be very close to it.

            Unless you think as someone else here who told me the israelis blinded the russians because their technology is light years ahead of the russians.

          • Sinbad2

            An AWAC is not a submarine tracker, they are totally different.

            again wrong no they are not you cant connect S-125’s S-200 or Kub systems to modern Russian SAM’s they are too old to do so.
            Also again no the Il-20 is not a anti sub or a AWACS aircraft you idiot its a ELINT aircraft it interceps communications it has nothing to do with a AWACS role (the A-50 belev is for that) or a anti sub role (the Il-38 is for that)……plz just stop you are really and i mean REALLY starting to look like a moron now…..

        • χρηστος

          the Russian version is that the Israelis used the aircraft as a decoy, they flew near it and the large heat signature of the Russian aircraft drew the missile on it. what do you think.?

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            I dont think, I know they covering up what really happen, because what they say it happen, it is a lie. And when you searching for the truth you never conclude anything before all facts come to the table, if they ever come. If we learn something new I let you know.

          • χρηστος

            maybe its a simple mistake. the syrians thought the aircraft was foe so they shot it down. they are trying to cover this up because it is a big deal. Russians killed by Russian equipment operated by allies, Syrians….so they are trying to exploit a mstake for political reasons

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            K is not working like this. IFF system is a system that recognize friends or enemies and both systems had it both on the plane as well the S200. Also syrians and russians work together in the control centers that direct fire.

            This is so they avoid exactly this and the missile will not have hit the russian plane under any circumstances. This is a fact. Now many say many things and make it look like a third rate hollyshit movie. As I said lies do have the bad habit to be uncovered when is least expected. So lets wait and see what info comes in.

            As I said before hunting for the truth first rule to do this is never conclude on speculation and always decide what is what based on proven fact and not what someone think happen and how. What I am absolute fact in my mind is that did not happen, as officially been told to the public.

            wise words man…lets wait and see then

    • 1691

      It sounds like a premature statement, too quick to be believable. The Russians don’t jump to announcements prior to a due investigation. It takes time. I don’t believe in this statement at all. It is a wool over our eyes but in that case, it is not to fool us, but to avoid a bigger mess. I am not surprised the jews lost their marbles: first, Konashenko points who did MH17, a few hours later Putin announces that no, we are not going to please you and we are not going to fight your rats now. We’ll deal with them at our leasure. The very situation is nerve-wrecking for the terrorists, they were waiting for Tehran, then Sochi, and woops, there will be no fight. Those creatures and their commanders could not swallow up all of this. Plus the Skripal nonsense. Plus usa elections. The deep state bit the dust again.

      • olim

        When will the investigation of the crash of the plane with the entire Aleksandrov
        Choir on board in the first minutes after the start from Sevastopol in
        the Crimea on Christmas Day 2015 end?
        Answer:
        NEVER, because Russia would have to admit that the plane was knocked
        down because of the act of terror, and this could not be left
        unanswered.

        • 1691

          Do you think it will be good to say : this act of terror was done by X and that act of terror was done by Z? We, most of people on Earth know who is behind the acts of terror. So ? Am I a judge in need of evidence? Am I St Peter to decide should I grant you access to paradise or send you to hell. We live in such times when the truth comes on its own, it is not mouth -fed to the masses. MSM does it to rinse the remaining thinking cell in some humans. The sane, they can add up 2+2. And trust me, there will be retaliation and there has been, for the victims of fires all over in Russia, for the ambassadors, for the planes and the pilots. What do you think the Russians were doing with surgical presision in Syria for the last 2,5 years? Why the jews lost their marbles and created this tragedy? They are also feeling the heat! So many “moderate rebels” went up in search of virgins. If this is not an answer that I don’t know what will please you. An all out war? What?

      • Alpha&Omega

        We agree on the first part regarding it seems like a “premature statement” in order “to avoid a bigger mess”. But it’s not “The deep state bit the dust again”, rather it was Putin and Russia.

        • 1691

          Irrelevant! Who cares what you think? Deep state did not get what they wanted. Period. Hillary, is it you? Get lost!

        “Israeli technology is too sophisticated for Russian systems.”………Too funny.

        The Israelis are cowards, plain and simple.
        That’s why they always use false flags

            the argument about how “Its impossible for muh 1960’s era S-200 operated by muh amazing SAA to shoot down the Il-20” for the love of god you are beiond retarded.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            you confuse the radar system of the S200 with the year of the creation of the system. That S200 is also what down the allegedly stealth american planes over Yugoslavia.

          • Daniel Miller

            …..and again you show your ignorance the system witch downed the F117 was not a S-200 it was a S-125 a compleately diffrent system https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1999_F-117A_shootdown

            You really do twist the facts don’t you.
            I’m sure you know that the F117 was only detected when it opened its bomb doors, and it wasn’t an S200.
            Do you get a kick out of misleading people?

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            no i dont you just ignorant and parroting not from the position of knowledge but what ever you manage to pick on the net and think is correct.

            Why you think Russians still manufacture radars with technology of WW2 and integrate them with their modern radar systems? Do you have basic knowledge of what the americans call stealth and what reality is? And they did not shot it down because of the reason you saying. But go ahead and think what ever you like to me is irrelevant and what you like to think in your ignorance of fact.

            And another thing you should educate yourself is why their is no such thing as true stealth.

      We also find this hard to understand and wouldn’t be surprised if the israelis don’t just hide behind it, but also used electronic warfare to confuse or even guide a Syrian SAM to the Russian Il-20.

    • Alpha&Omega

      The Israelis didn’t mainly use them as human shields, they indirectly but deliberately targeted them through an unwilling proxy. It is therefore to be seen as a planned attack on a Russian military plane and all of its crew, who met their fate in a fireball followed by a cold watery grave.
      It’s a war declaration against the Russian federation and should be treated accordingly.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        It also shows how inferior Russian AWACS capability is when Zionist 1980’s vintage F-16 can ghost the most modern Russian IL-20 ELINT aircraft undetected. Imagine what US F-35 and F-22 stealth planes can do. US can bomb Moscow at will.

        • Jens Holm

          F16s are less vintage then most things You find in the region.

          Very primitive and unqualified statement as well as Israel are veterans in them, have clever airforce systems and hit their targets. You dont know “fast” and “determinated”

          Kind of extra strange, You dont mention S400 shot it down.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            The Russian idiots are saying that a Syrian S-200 shot it down, the Russian morons obviously don’t even have basic IFF on their primitive planes. F-16 are relatively basic planes compared to F-18 Hornets even, let alone F-35- F-22 or French Rafales. I flew F-4E for several years so perhaps know more about planes than you do.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            100% correct, the F-4E with its versatile interception and heavy payload has no equal. Look the Iranians how they still use both F-4E and F-14 even without spares. The US 1970’s planes were flying tanks.

          • zman

            Except that they dropped like flies over VN…no cannons and too heavy and slow to ditch AA missiles. They relied on AtA missiles. My brother tended them on Kitty hawk, my neighbor serviced them, my dad did technical upgrades on them and my cousin flew them. I’ve heard all the stories too.

          • zman

            Since you know all about the F-4, what was their nickname?…and I’m not talking about ‘wild weasle’.

          • Sinbad2

            F16’s 1974 technology, great in their day, like an E type Jaguar, America could make good stuff back then, but like Jaguars America now makes unreliable junk.
            And that is why the US still uses a 44 year old plane as its main plane.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            F-14 was the best US multi-role fighter of its day followed by the versatile F-4E the workhorse. F-16 is lightweight but in skilled hands can outperform any Russian flying dishwasher. Even an 1980’s Block C Turkish F-16 downed a Russian SU-24 dishwasher with a single AIM-9X 10 miles deep in Syria and then flew away undetected.

          • Sinbad2

            So why are all modern American planes shit?

          • Zionism = EVIL

            There has been a deterioration in US combat planes R&D and budgetary issues. However, when the kinks come out of the F-35 it will rule the skies like the F-18A Hornet can still out-perform any Russian jet. The USN has mothballed all F-14 and many F-4 in Arizona for future conflicts.

          • zman

            When they get the ‘kinks’ out of the F-35CF, it might be fit for use as a carnival ride…as long as they lower their safety protocols. If they attach it to a Ferris Wheel, it’ll see more air time.

          • Gregory Casey

            Budgetary issues? There has NEVER been more money allocated by Congress to the US Military than has been allocated in the past 4-6 years ……. since Republicans took over Congress from January 1 of 2013. What you really mean by “budgetary issues” is the great Military-Industrial Complex rip-off where Defense Contractors have never operated with less oversight and never been so inefficient and downright corrupt. Russia’s and China’s ‘spend’ on their Military is a fraction of US spend yet both Russian & Chinese scientific and technological advances far exceed anything achieved by America. Defense Contractors have never been so bloated and so fat ……… but that is entirely understandable having regard to the fact that the Military-Defense Contractors pour money into the pockets of Republicans running for Congress and for State-Houses much like the last days of Sodom & Gomorrah!!

          • Bob

            Correction – that was a calculated NATO-Turkish ambush – the Russian’s certainly did not anticipate a direct NATO-Turkish attack on its warplane inside of Syrian airspace. NATO-Turkey ambushed an unsuspecting Russian aircraft and then ran for safety inside Turkey – and thereafter all NATO warplanes at NATO-Turkish Incirlik air-base shifted to a very reduced flight profile near Syrian-Turkish border area. That NATO-Turkey surprise attack on an unsuspecting Russian aircraft amounted to: ambush, run and hide.

          • Alpha&Omega

            That’s correct. And what was the response from Putin that time? Don’t bother answer, since the answer is: nothing at all. Putin crawled for Erdogan that bragged about shooting down the Russian plane 2015 yesterday, the very same day the Russians got humiliated again.

          • Concrete Mike

          • VGA

            An upgraded F-16 from today is nothing like the first versions of it … there is a reason the israelis have based their very efficient airforce around the F-16. And this incident again proves its versatility.

          • zman

            No, this event just shows their duplicity and morals. The Russians knew the F-16s were there, as they often fly this route, even when not attacking. But they ‘had’ an agreement to not get involved and to be warned of a dangerous situation. The Israelis, being Israelis, reneged on this arrangement. Putin now knows just what the Israelis think of them…just another tool in their arsenal. But they’ll…1) blame the Syrians,…when that doesn’t work…2) it was a terrible mistake, let us pay off the families, or 3) We have a scapegoat, let us punish them. Demote some about to retire general or some such BS. They could have been flying Sopwith Camels and would have done the same thing.

            The deliberate failure of Israeli Defense Forces to notify Russia that its 4 ‘planes were about to launch an attack on Latakia until 1 minute beforehand, at which point those ‘planes were already operating behind the shield of the Russian ‘plane so that Syrian Defences, when firing in response to incoming missile fire, directed missiles towards same area of sky within which was the Russian ‘flight path with Israelis immediately running from the scene and leaving the Russian ‘plane alone in the sky onto which the S-200 ‘locked-on’ ensured that S-200 Defensive ‘strikes locked on to the only target left in the air ……. and that unfortunately was the Russian flight ………. a target operating at significantly lesser speeds than the 4 Israeli jets and not designed for the taking of evasive action.

            tzoday you gat answer. bitter, hard, but as i know you, you will write the same bullshits.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Correct, Syrian S-200 have been upgraded by the Iranians to their Sayyed 2(Hunter) level and integrated with a basic radar network. Russian radars have always been their weakness. The MIG -21 their delusional equal to a US F-4 did not even have all weather or night flying instrument capability. The Chinese even improved the MIG-21 with their Chengdu F-7 air-guard with Grifo Italian radars. Russian planes are primitive. India has crashed over 200 MIGS and Sukhois including the “best” SU-27. The RD-33 burns out.

          • Jens Holm

            Sorry. The important should be some Syrians shot a Russian airplane down or not. It did.

            next of course is the reason for it.

            Not a single here has told, it might be uqualified Syrian military skills. They probatly nver has heard about it…

          • putinbeater

            and? perfect ruskie technique. :DDDD

          • putinbeater

            by syrians operated original russian s-200, connetcted together with russian AA/AD systems

            ruskies are joke of planet :DDD

      • Brother Thomas

        Well – I don’t think there should be any actions based purely on outrage and indignation, no bait swallowed. Revenge is a dish best served cold.

        • Alpha&Omega

          There will be no revenge, neither warm nor cold, only more attacks on Syria and more humiliation for Putin and Russia. Just like with a school bully, the more shown weakness, the worse the abuse. USrael are the bully and Russia the bullied that even the friends start to avoid.

          There is no excuse for Putin’s weak response and pathetic speech today. It’s plain embarrassing, especially for us that once had our trust and faith in him.

        • Gregory Casey

          Agreed. Stone-heartedly cold!!

    • Zionism = EVIL

            Fucking dipshit

      • Brother Thomas

        In the eyes of the West.

  • krizantem

    If Russian MoD is true then Israel has lost any credibility for Russia for taking the Russian plane as cover and letting Russians know the attack within a minute before it starts. From now on any Israel attack on Syrian soil must be met not only by SAD but also RAD systems. Russia must clearly point it out to Israel. Russia can use this tragic event as a leverage to prevent the future attacks of Israel. Otherwise Russia will loose credibility and relative dominance they had in Syria.

    • Free man

      Russia and Israel have no interest in confronting each other.
      Israel will have to compensate Russia.

      • Felix D (TUPPERWARE PARTY)

        Krizantem is correct. It is Russia that will “compensate” Israel.

        • Free man

          Russia prefers Israel as an ally, not as an enemy.

          • Daniel Miller

            but they will still retaleate so yea.

          • Free man

            That’s what a man like you would do. This is not what Putin will do. He will get from Netanyahu the maximum possible for this event.

            More like dare not not prefer not

          • Alpha&Omega

            It seems that Putin and Moscow don’t understand the difference between allies,
            “partners” and enemies. It has so far costed countless of Syrian lives, hundreds of Hezbollah and Iranian lives and tens of Russian lives. How many more before Putin grows a pair so he dares to speak and label things as they are?

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Putin is an uneducated corrupt coward whose daughters have billions hoarded in the west. Putin was a low level KGB major in Dresden GDR and failed to understand the depth of CIA penetration of East Germany including the Jew Markus Wolf head of GDR intelligence who was in direct contact with CIA and Mossad.

          • Jens Holm

            Putin is very educated compared to many leaders in the world. Its more what that is used for or against, which matters.

          • Jens Holm

            Again a very strange version. Ypu conlude in the most infame way. If You was no a 0, You would just escale thing and make any solutions even more far away.

            Too many here are just like that.

          • Ma_Laoshi

            Too little, too late. The Kremlin critters rose to power together, got rich together, and are now growing old together. As long as life is good for them, why not pretend the world is as you wish it to be, or as you think it should be. Even if Putin wants to go soft on his friends, the present situation of war (because that’s what we’re talking about) necessitates a different kind of leadership for the RF than it has had in the recent past; his new term would’ve been the perfect occasion to shake things up. Didn’t happen.

      • Sinbad2

        Yes they will, an eye for an eye.
        Expect a dozen or so Israeli soldiers to die

        • Free man

          Apparently your desires are not in Russia’s interest.

          • Sinbad2

            Russia has killed Israeli troops in the past, they will do it again.
            Remember it is Bibi that runs begging to Moscow.

          • Sinbad2

            Wait and see.

        • Joe

          Will not happen. Putin would not date to take on Israel

        • Ma_Laoshi

          Hahahaha! And shed precious jewish blood? Putin doesn’t dare.

      • Trauma2000

        How will IsraHell compensate Russia for the humiliation of having innocent Russians murdered..? There is NO compensation. There can be only justice.

        • Free man

          A practical and realistic leader like Putin will know how to make the most out of this event.

      • Joe

        Will never happen

        • Free man

          Mistakes occur between allies, and the wronged side must compensate the other side.

      • Jens Holm

        Israel has no S400s.

    • Ma_Laoshi

      That crew died because obviously Russia lost all credibility long ago.

      • Alpha&Omega

        Unfortunately you are correct. The question is why Putin chose to put Russia and its military in this situation. How it would end was obvious a long time ago.

        • Sinbad2

          How it has ended, is with a Russian victory, the mighty USA routed by a handful of Russian troops.
          No matter how you guys spin this, Russia has won, and the USA has lost.

          • Jens Holm

            You must be worse then blind. Nothing in Idlib is anywhere near to be some americans doing this and that.

            But You keep the line well. Americans pulled the trigger to that S400 as well as a jew russian spy used the airplane to have a look for evil reasons.

          • so

            Unless it(USA) wants to go all in. In that case they(USA) lose. Unlike the corrupt government and media there are alot of people who are sick of this crap(endless war,rich getting richer, no affordable healthcare, stagnaunt wages for 30 years, militant police and on and on). People need to be patient. If those in power don’t wake up there will be no country to have power over.

        • Jens Holm

          Thats a stupid question. Several airforces are there and 5 stupid and stubborn armies below.

      • Sinbad2

        But they are still stopping the US from turning Syria into a client state.
        Look at the countries America has saved, Libya, Iraq Ukraine Haiti Kosovo.
        All shit holes the US is worse than the plague, they literally starve people to death.
        Better to be saved by a non credible Russia, than pillaged for eternity by a credible America.

        • so

          That list is just the beginning.

        • Ma_Laoshi

          As we speak, East Syria is a US client state just fine. Add North Aleppo, Afrin, and now Idlib which are ultimately under NATO jurisdiction, and that’s about half the territory and oil which has been gobbled up–so far. Nonetheless some truth in what you write: for the weak, life isn’t all roses in the Empire either. All the more necessary to demonstrate the wages of defiance to those entertaining thoughts of leaving the reservation. You say Syria has been saved by Russia; I think countries like Turkey, the Philippines, and ultimately also Germany and Korea don’t fancy a fate like Syria’s for themselves.

        • Alpha&Omega

          You mean the lesser than 2/3 of Syria that is left, and where israeli and US warplanes freely roams over daily and bombs weekly?

    • Joe

      No will not happen . Israel will do business as usual and as usual S400 for show only. SYRIANS will continue to die for Russia

    • Alpha&Omega

      Very true.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      hahaha Russian pussies have no credibility, Zionists have bombed Syria 200 plus times with impunity and so has Turkey, France, UK and US. Even UAE jets have bombed Idlib. Russian S-400 are the biggest JOKE of the century.

  • χρηστος

    Its Russia’s fault anyway. why on earth let the Israelis bomb Syria in the first place?they didnt give s-300 to SYria because Isreal didnt want them to…..starting to think that Israel is a major threat to Russian interests there….so they tolarate with their behaviour

  • Gregory Casey

    • Daniel Miller

      oh yes cuz you know “Muh SAA is totaly not to blame for this”

      • Sinbad2

        Remember when they left the unarmed Pantsir sitting out in the open, just waiting for the Israelis to attack it?
        Syria positioned on of its AA batteries in a valley, because it was close to water and the latrine. I gather it was the Iranians who told them to move it to the top of the hill, so the radar would work.
        They are idiots.

        • Daniel Miller

          Exactly!!! Arabs are complete idiots when it comes to war,why do you think Israel is not scared of them they know how dumb they are (and that is the reason why they are so scared of Iran cuz they know what they are doing somewhat).

    • Concrete Mike

      Here is my take on this, briefly.

      Russia casually placates israel, as israel has threatened russia with terrorist attack.

      Israel did it to usa
      Israel did it to france.

      If russia retaliated, i would expect to see isis in moscow soon.

      My brief take on this, I hope im wrong. I wish a good day to all.

  • Joe Kerr

    Latest news is that Russia’s DM Shoigu holds Israel responsible and reserves the right to respond, which would make it a dumb move by Israel. The only logic in it could be to set Russia against Syria, which, if so, is an act of desperation that has and will, backfire badly.

    • The Farney Fontenoy

      Russia won’t lift a finger against Putin’s masters, anyway Russia acted against Syria yesterday.

  • Trauma2000

    Tit for Tat. A Russian plane was downed because of IsraHell. An IsraHelli plane needs to be downed. 14 Russian lives were lost. 14 Jewish lives are forfeit. And Syria should be seeking payback an order of magnitude greater than has been inflicted on it. Enough games. Jews don’t play by the rules. So they should not be ‘protected’ by the rules.

  • Ma_Laoshi

    Mayyybe… or maybe Russia tries to save face, knowing full well that this was a deliberate Israeli hit. Either way, serves Russia right for shamelessly letting their kosher partners bomb their loyal Syrian ally “as long as no Russians get hurt”. Now that they’re in the Middle East they should ask around what happens to those who appease the jews. But no worries, I’m sure that Russia will serve up a severe response–maybe next time…

  • Gregory Casey

    When Russia agreed to supply S-300 systems to Syria earlier this year (or last year?) BiBi & Lieberman screamed loudly and Putin relented and agreed not to supply those systems to Syria. Now, that display of good relations with Jerusalem has bitten Putin on the ass but rest assured, it will bite both Lieberman & BiBi far more viciously in due course. I strongly suspect that whatever Russia and Putin decide to do, Israel will NOT like it. At all. That this happened on the evening of the very day Putin agreed the mexican stand-off with Pasha-Erdogan on Idlib and while Russians had their backs turned shows how utterly despicable are the israelis when it comes to the Syrian War. Moreover, if, indeed the French fired Missiles at Latakia Mr Goldman Sachs in Paris had better get inside his nuclear silo and there remain.

    • Daniel Miller

      Stop spreading bullshit Russia never agreed to supply any system to the retarded arab army
      they know that they will fail ether way.

          • Daniel Miller

            why? bcz they shot the aircraft down……while the IAF provoked it the SAA still did it.
            Thats like shooting your friend by mistake when you are provoked by a robber…you will still go to jail for atleast man slaughter.

          • Joe Kerr

            It wasn’t a mistake… the S-200 targeted the source of the missiles, which used the il-20 as cover( as those who believe in the Mossad motto have a track record of doing). This time the deception didn’t work.

          • Daniel Miller

            dosent matter still need to at least hold the S-200 crew partialy responsable.

    • Sinbad2

      So you are saying that it would have been better if the idiot Syrians had shot down the plane with an S300.
      Can you explain why death by S300 is preferable to death by S200?

    • Felix D (TUPPERWARE PARTY)

      Like America was weak on Dec 7 1941 when Japanese bombs and torpedoes were “intercepted” at Pearl Harbor. Wasn’t a lot of laughing and celebrating in Japan 3.5 years later.

      • The Farney Fontenoy

        The US deliberately provoked Japan into attacking a vulnerable target & by “coincidence” all aircraft carriers happened to be out of port, it was a set up.

        • Felix D (TUPPERWARE PARTY)

          Probably.

      • Sinbad2

        Notice how America moved all its new ships out of Pearl, but left the old ships as a sacrifice?

          • Ronald

            From what RT said six hours ago, that the Russian plane was hit just after the French ship fired missiles,
            My take is this is just a cover story on a big French Error.

          • Sinbad2

            Maybe, but the US was quick to say it was the Syrians, probably because the Israelis told the US.
            Anyway lets see how Israel reacts.

          • AJ

            Russia has not been directly targeted by Israel – Israel was sneaky in using the spy plane but it was a friendly fire incident.

      • White_American_Patriot

          Yes, and thank you for reiterating what I just said.

        • Sinbad2

          Actually Japan surrendered to the USA because they were terrified of the Russians. Russia was about to invade, something America was too scared to do.
          There was a saying in the Navy, “that guy believes his own BS”
          Americans believe their own BS, all the stuff you learned about the hero stuff America has done, are all lies.

          • White_American_Patriot

            The Emperor didn’t even mention Russia in his surrender speech they were so irrrelevant

            The US nuked Japan after destroying their air force and Navy

            The pivotal battle of Midway saw the destruction of the Japanese fleet

            Russia was hiding out refusing to fight Japan until the very end when the war was already over

            The US fought on 2 fronts

            Russia fought on 1

            These are the facts

  • Joe Doe

    Russia sold Syria o Turkey, Israel and Americans. Therefore, Russia should blame itself for what happen last night. Russia leadership playing double game and this is why Russia solders pay the price. This should be warring to other nations, before they would make the decision to join Russia as alliance. Pu.tin will not provide any protection or security. Joining Russia the risk outweigh the benefits. Syria has been hit so many times by Americans and Israelis and every time Russia came up with cheap talk and mean time Syria has been partition, this is what you can get from Russia, cheap talk

  • AG Korvin

    Wow.

    An Il-20 AEW, comms and spy plane without ECM.

    A plane without an IFF responder. Or a SAM without IFF query.

    And a plane that was ‘about to land’ and has been ‘used for cover’ at the very same time.

    Gentlemen, let’s stick to what is important: Rest in Peace Soldiers.

    • Daniel Miller

      the Il-20 did not expect to get shot down by a S-200 its ECM can do anything if the missile is so close that it relocks on to it.
      And no the S-200 is a 1960’s era system it dosent have IFF.

      • AG Korvin

        The S-200 (SA-5) “Vega” systems are equipped with IFF sensors and also its associated P-35/37 tracking radars.

        Yet to shoot down an AEW/ECM plane with a Vega… is embarassing at least.

        • Daniel Miller

          no it dosent the S-200VE dosent have IFF it cant even see transponder signals…the P-35 dose not have a IFF https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P-35_radar
          as seen in this source.

          • AG Korvin

            Both have Kremniy-2 IFF system, as every Soviet SAM or aircraft since the 1950s.

            But if it wasn’t equipped… that puts the reponsibility squarely to the shoulders of the Russian higher-ups.

          • Daniel Miller

            Not only is that system extremele outdated but also dosent work propperly Russian aircraft nolonger use the Russian military that thing only has 12 codes and can be imatated by the enemy very easely so most likely the SAA dosent use it since its frequency bands are well known.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

    The aircraft does not continuously transmit to S400/ command? It is in the best position to light up all incoming objects. I think the crew are pros to immediately get out of the area.

  • al quaida

    I’m confused. If it was used as cover, why was a missile fired at it? If its reflective surface is far greater than an F-16, than it obviously wasn’t an F-16, so why fire a missile at it?

        Surely the Syrian air defence must be made aware of where all Russian craft are at all times? Did they see both the F-16’s and the Russian plane and fired a missile regardless thinking it would only target the F-16’s?

        • Zionism = EVIL

          It is called IFF and even a skilled pilot in a Cessna 152 can distinguish between hostile and friendly aircraft. Russians are just inept.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            To some extent, however the Russians control the Syrian air defence system with their bases at Latakia and have supposed radar pickets on destroyers in the Mediterranean who failed to detect a 4 plane Zionist strike package. Even a Phantom F-4’s pulse dopplar 360 radar would have picked up the F-16s as soon they left occupied Palestine. In the 1980’s the Turkish airforce used to shadow Iranian F-4E strike packages when they took a short cut to bomb Iraq and the Turkish forward radar at DiyarBakir picked them up as far away as Hamadan. The Russians are just inept.

            Considering the game that Israel is playing with Syria, one would’ve expected Russians to be on high alert, continuously.

            With such incompetence of Russian troops, Ukraine has a good chance of defeating Russia in a total war, lol.

          Perhaps the operator had a rush of blood to the head & believed all targets were enemy.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            All jokes aside, if the Radar on the S-400 worked it would have easily picked up the F-16s as the air corridor over eastern Mediterranean is very congested with US and UK radars in Cyprus and on NATO battle ships. If the S-400 were operational than their fire control and target tracking radar the 92N6E
            (NATO Codename: Gravestone). The radar is based on the MZKT-7930 8×8
            vehicle. The 96L6 Cheese Board 3D surveillance and tracking radar is
            optionally carried by the same vehicle when the S-400 battery is
            deployed autonomously and should have picked up any aerial target up to 300 kms away and also utilized IFF. Russians have been exposed with pants down and will suffer more humiliation..

    So, after having a second look at the map, it appears that the Israeli jets didn’t fly anywhere near the Russian plane, but it looks like the missiles they launched came close. So why is the Russian Defense Ministry claiming they did?

    I know Russia is doing it’s best to prevent world war 3 but where is it’s red line? Surely there must be rhetoric started to call out Israel in preparation for the inevitable if necessary, which I’m thinking is probably going to eventually be the case anyway. Not wait until they get stabbed in the back themselves.

      You are right. But things are observed from different sources. I also allow me to add, that we see a oicture here and not a movie. Things can be very fast in the air.

    • James

      OK, I see it differently now, the S-200 was fired at the F-16 earlier which drew the missile out towards the IL-20, then the F-16 kept the IL-20 in a line-of-sight between it and the missile, probably till the missile was out of range of identifying friend or foe, and used the heat signature to kill the nearest thing….I’m guessing.

        Yes you got it.

  • Manuel Flores Escobar

    Russian military doesnt share the comments of president Putin!….

  • John Brown

    Well now Syria will get the S-300 and S-400 and Putin can move against the remaining racist supremacist Jewish oligarchs in Russia.

    This deal with Erdogan is better than I thought, as the Russian army will enter Idlib in large numbers escorted by the Turkish army without even having ot fight any battles at all. This is why Israel downed the Russian military transport plane to try to wreck this deal which is huge victory for Syria.

    It also helps Russia and Syria by Erdogan is giving them a shield to free the rural areas of Latakia Idlib and Homs which they would have to do first any way. The Oct 15 deadline gives the Russians plenty of time to bomb the crap out of the militants. The buffer zone will also be territory Syria won’t have to fight for as the Israeli terrorists will have to pull back and Russia has more time to greatly strengthen Syrian air defenses.

    The fact that Israel attacked today in Latakia in a temper tantrum proves this was a good deal to make for Syria. If the militants don’t cooperate, they get hammered anyway. Nothing to lose. A very smart move by Putin again as well as Erdogan. I am sure China is helping financially by helping Turkey out with USSA Israeli sanctions and to get out from under the IMF

    what happens to the so called syrian air defence integrated with russian air defence network?

  • L’Obelisk Jewellers

    RUSSIA WAS WATING FOR THIS !!!NO MORE ISRAEL ,MOP ,THE FLUOR UP WITH THEM ‘RUSSIA” !!!SOME ONE WILL PAY DEAR FOR THIS …

  • EnabledVet

    It’s called “war” folks. When you get in a hairy scrap at a bar with your buddies, sometimes you accidentally elbow a buddy in the face. You get in a fight, you’re going to get hit. Now, however, your buddy might be very upset and take it out on the other guys. If I were Israel, I would tread lightly, and use all their leverage on the US to get them involved, or they might be looking at a few losses themselves.

  • greatndit

    its okay, russia is in love with israel . russia will forgive & forget what happened today and this accident will happen over and over again…

  • russ

    Russia hadn’t gotten involved in the Syrian War Syria would have won this 2 years ago.

  • Vitex

    By deception we will do war. Sound like anyone you know? Remember these are the same people who destroyed an american warship and were never punished for it. The Israelis knew the IL-20 would be going low and slow (probably on final approach) and probably with its search radars disabled – as it came in to land. Murderous intent.
