Terrorists are capable of monitoring radio frequencies used by Russian aricraft deployed in Syria, the Russian news agency Sputnik reported citing a statement by Russian Deputy Defense Minister Colonel General Alexander Fomin and remarks by military expert Vladimir Kozin.
On October 25, Colonel General Fomin stated that the June 6 drone attack on the Russian Hmeymim airbase in Syria was managed and coordinate by a US Poseidon-8 reconnaissance plane. He also added that the terrorists even had capabilities to monitor radio frequencies used by Russian aricraft. According to him, tools and measures used by them are produced in foreign states, including NATO member states.
According to the military expert quoted by Sputnik, the militants are actively receiving support from the US and its allies even despite the recent shift of the situation in the war-torn country. He stated that this support includes various equipment, including radio electronic tools, and even a direct support from advisers.
The recent escalation in diplomatic rhetorics between the US and Russia is another signal of the growing tensions between the two countries. These tensions can be observed in Syria as well as in other regions around the world. Most recently, Washington has openly announced that it’s going to withdraw from arms reduction agreements with Russia.
