BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:45 P.M.) – Russia’s decision to supply Syria with the S-300 missile defense system wont hurt Russian-Israeli relations, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanoc said on Monday.

“I don’t believe it will. Our relations [with Israel] are far wider. This is an important issue, of course. But it is also our right and the right of sovereign Syria,” Bogdanov said, when asked if Russia’s decision to supply S-300 air defense systems to Syria might affect Russia’s relations with Israel.

Russia is reportedly delivering the S-300 air defense system to Syria in the next two weeks, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced on Monday morning.

Previously, Russia agreed to supply Syria with the S-300 system in 2013; however, after lengthy talks with Israel, Moscow chose not to deliver the anti-aircraft defense equipment.

338laputa : You mean the same schlomo Air Farce that ridicules and humiliates ALL mighty Arab air forces for 70 years? Hasbara has no budget for someone like me. But if their MoD considers your ‘Greater Israel’ nightmare to come true, I can make it really easier for them. If you think S-300 can ground Kheil HaAvir, you’re totally deluded, dude! You will probably see 5 or 6 F-16 shot down as a tremendous victory until all Syrian air defences will be wiped out and KHA to start a real rampage on everything IRGC and Hezbollocks… Since the later is… Read more »

Why are they even allies? What does Russia gain from Israel except for more dead Russians?

Because Putin still thinks appeasing Zio and US will make them allies. This time his general and public outcry forced him to deliver S-300

Hi tech for their militaries… Especially for computing systems…
They got a lot from France, e.g. their optronics/laser targetting pod for aircraft is license built French Damocles…
You have also 1 million Russian-Israelis…
And these 15 Russian militaries were killed by a Syrian SAM…
