Delivery of S-300 to Syria: emotional step or strategic course?


Russia declared intention to transfer to Bashar al-Assad's troops the advanced air defense system. Why this decision is made after statements for "a chain of tragic accidents"? How will it change a situation in the region and what Israel will answer with? ZRK S-300. Photo: Sergey would Seem to Bobyliov/TASS, the situation has been almost rumpled. 15 Russian officers have died, Moscow has accused Israel, Tel Aviv — Syria, but all have brought condolences, and Vladimir Putin has lowered tension degree a phrase about "a chain of tragic casual circumstances". But a week later the Ministry of Defence suddenly announces transfer of powerful weapon to al-Assad — the S-300 complex. The military importance the director of the project of new technologies and the international security estimates the FEAST center, professor of academy of military sciences Vadim Kozyulin:vadim Kozyulin the director of the project of new technologies and the international security the FEAST center "At Damascus isn't present strategic air defense, and combination of the air defense system with a complex of radio-electronic fight is about creation of the control system, plus. It will give the chance to Damascus completely to control the airspace and to remove from the agenda such questions as installation of a no-fly zone over any territory, and I think that probable raids of aircraft of the USA or France, or Germany, and even Israel, can be also excluded in the future after the system is completely developed.

It was necessary to react and react somehow rather effectively, this also has been made. I already said that the ratio of forces from it doesn't change, and Moscow has acted this way rather beautifully though for the majority, maybe, and unexpectedly. In Israel too, in general, understand that a situation rather silly. Russia, as we know, never recognizes own mistakes, never recognizes mistakes of the close allies. There was a guilty person who behaves rather silently, rather frostily and, in general, in my opinion, treats this step of Russia with understanding, let and not opened". It is worth keeping in mind and the previous collisions of the Russian and Israeli weapon over Syria.
