According to maritime observer, Yoruk Isik, the Russian warship, the Admiral Grigorovich, transited the Bosphorus Strait en route to the Port of Tartous in western Syria.

As pointed out by Isik, the Russian warship is armed with Kalibr SS-N-27 cruise missiles, which could provide support to the Syrian Armed Forces during their ongoing operation in the Idlib Governorate.

According to some reports on Saturday, the Russian Navy has already used some cruise missiles to target the jihadist positions in southern Idlib; however, this is yet to be confirmed by Russian Ministry of Defense.
