DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:15 P.M.) – Russian warships have sailed through the Bosphorus into the Mediterranean in response to US President Trump’s threats to strike Syria.

Four Russian navy ships, including Project 266M Natya 1 class minesweeper, Valentin Pikul 770, ВМФ Project 22870 ЧФ BSF and rescue tug Prof Nikolay Muru, were spotted heading to the Russian navy base in Syria’s Tartus.

Up to 17 Russian warships have crossed the Bosphorus into Syria so far this week.

The deployment of the Russian fleet comes as the US President Donald Trump threatened to strike the Syrian Army ahead the long-awaited battle of Idlib.

They are rescue ships not missile cruisers or frigates. This means they are going to Syria to evacuate the Russian military NOT to help Syria defend itself against the upcoming US aggression. Past experience speaks volumes and past experience proves that Russia would never confront the US tyranny militarily to defend its loyal allies.

He certainly will not be getting my vote. He caters to Evangelicals and is owned by the Zionist lobby like so many American politicians. The left complains about Russia for placing facebook ads but overlooks the millions given by Zionist lobby.

Hopefully the Russians will act against the real force driving this war: Israel.

Lets hope russia has managed to position itself so it can openly defy the attack of the u.s.etc, Putin has had enough meetings lately,he must of secured some assurances and given them to germany,turkey etc! The whole world has witnessed how russia has been on the side of good during this attack on syria,dont let the forces of world terror win at the last great battle!.

Esperemos que Rusia de apoyo y protección a las tropas terrestres con su fuerza aerospaceial, y que los misiles kalibr no se queden encerrados en los barcos. El apoyo de Rusia es fundamental para poder erradicar a los terroristas apoyados por USA-ISrael-NATO-Turkia-Jordania.
