Photo: A marine by Lystsev/TASS It is updated in 11:37B the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation have said that the Russian Il-20 in the evening on September 17 was brought down by forces of air defense of Syria. Interfax with reference to the official representative of department major general Igor Konashenkov reports about it. According to the Ministry of Defence, the domestic scout plane was substituted under blow by aircraft of Israel which has notified Russia on the planned operation in Syria on the hot line one minute prior to blow that hasn't allowed to remove Il-20 in a safe zone. "We regard these provocative actions of Israel as hostile. As a result of irresponsible actions of the Israeli military 15 Russian servicemen have died. It doesn't answer spirit of the Russian-Israeli partnership at all" — Konashenkov has told. Earlier the plane of radio-electronic investigation onboard which there were 15 people has disappeared from radars. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, there was it during the attack of the Israeli planes and rocket attacks from a board of the French Auvergne ship which is in the Mediterranean Sea. At the same time the ministry doesn't declare directly wine of any party of the conflict. According to the latest data, the Russian Il-20 has failed in 27 kilometers to the west from the settlement Banias in the province Latakia. The USA considers that Il-20 has been brought accidentally down by air defense of Syria, so approve sources of CNN. According to the edition, Syrians tried to stop the attack of the Israeli aircraft to the province Latakia and have accidentally got to the Russian plane. The USA has learned about the incident as they at the international frequencies have received a signal from the Syrian military who have begun search and rescue operation. The representative of the Pentagon has said that the United States didn't participate in a raid to Latakia. The version about casual destruction Russian Il-20 the Syrian air defenses is commented by the expert of the Center of the analysis of strategy and technologies Sergey Denisentsev:sergey Denisentsev the expert of the Center of the analysis of strategy and technologies "Don't believe that he has been hit Syrian by air defense. First, there is a system of recognition "the — the stranger", secondly, far from the coast, but we, however, don't know the exact place of falling. It is known that communication was gone for 35 kilometers, but the place of falling, in my opinion, isn't established yet. In principle, the most modern air defense systems which Syrians have it is "Armours". For this reason it is extremely doubtful that at such distance from the coast Syrians could bring down him. I would tell the following concerning the message of CNN: very doubtfully the fact that they later have already put forward literally several hours the version without any investigation, without check of the facts looks. So the version of CNN looks improbable so far". Reaction of the western media to an incident with disappearance Russian Il-20 still reserved. At the time of an exit of material of the edition published factual notes with statements of the Russian Defense Ministry and the message of sources of CNN. To add BFM.ru in ва
