Russian Military Shows Drones It Says Came From Syria Raid

Russian Military Shows Drones It Says Came From Syria Raid

The Russian Defense Ministry presented some drones at a Moscow briefing on Friday.

"There were some provocateurs, but they were not Turks".

"We know who they are, who paid who for this provocation, and what the actual sum was", he said. As for this kind of incidents, there is nothing good about them.

It is curious that Russian Federation would blame Turkey, given that the two countries have improved relations over the previous year.

Russian Federation announced on 11 December the withdrawal from Syria of the bulk of its military contingent, after eliminating the best prepared forces of the Islamic State terrorist movement, but pointed out that it will keep operational the Jmemim and Tartus military bases.




The Russians released pictures showing what they recovered - attack drones partly made of wood and held together with masking tape.

"The most effective level is probably the level in the theater where they actually talk about deconfliction details and I would tell you that certainly they probably asked us not to strike targets and we've done the same with them, so I think that process is actually alive and is generally effective", McKenzie said.

"The documents indicate the need for Ankara to fulfill its obligations to ensure compliance with the cessation of hostilities by the armed forces under its control and to intensify the work on setting up observation posts in the de-escalation zone of Idlib in order to prevent such attacks by armed [unmanned aerial vehicles] UAVs", the ministry said.

On January 8, the Russian Defense Ministry said that Russian airbases in Syria were attacked by 13 drones handed over to terrorists by "one of the countries with high technological capabilities to provide satellite navigation". "Each drone used in the attack carried 10 such ammunition pieces", Novikov said.
