Russia is going to apply a total no fly zone in Syria, by Valentin Vasilescu

While the international press is asking questions on the number and version of the S-300 missiles that will be delivered in two weeks to Syria, Valentin Vasilescu is more interested in the Russian anti-air set up. This is involves applying a total no-fly zone to the Westerners (Israeli included). Nothing more, nothing less.

S-300 for Syria: the United Kingdom, France and Israel will no longer be able to fly over Syrian territory

In two weeks time, the Russian Federation will hand over to Syria, S-300anti-air defense batteries, and modern systems for automated control for anti-air command posts.

Will London, Paris and Tel-Aviv be sanctioned by Moscow and Washington?, by Thierry Meyssan

The confrontation which recently occurred in Lattakia may result in a complete global redistribution of the cards. There are two reasons for this, the second of which is being hidden from the Western world. First of all, it cost the lives of 15 Russian soldiers; secondly, it not only implicates Israël, but also the United Kingdom and France. This is potentially the most dangerous crisis in more than 60 years. We now have to find out whether President Trump, currently in the middle of his election campaign, is capable of supporting his Russian counterpart, in order that the United States and Russia may sanction the colonial powers as they did in 1956, during the Suez crisis.

Russian Military Drill off the Coast of Syria

The Russian army is performing a major military exercise off the coast of Syria. This is why air and maritime routes have been temporarily closed in this part of the Mediterranean. This Russian drill follows the destruction of a Russian plane during a joint British-French-Israeli attack on 17 September 2018. The target of this latter tri-state attack was located in the Syrian region of Latakia. Following this war game, Russia could propose to Syria, the adoption of new rules creating no (...)

Israel used Russian military plane to shield it against a Syrian attack

On 17 September 2018, at around 22 hrs (local time) a Russian military plane, Il-20, disappeared from the radar screens in the Mediterranean, approximately 35 km from the coasts of Syria.

The battle of Idleb is pushed back

The Russian and Turkish Presidents met at Sochi, on 17 September 2018. After their previous meeting on 7 September in Teheran, Russia has hardened its tone. For the first time, it recalled the illegal nature of the Turkish military presence in Idleb, emphasizing that this would have to stop. The first thing that Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan have done is to sign international cooperation agreements on the construction of the Turkish Stream pipe line and the civil nuclear central (...)

Western demands on Syria, by Thierry Meyssan

While on the ground, the war is ending, and only Idlib still needs to be freed from the terrorists, the Western powers are starting trouble all over again. They have just presented their demands to the UN special envoy, Staffan de Mistura. Unsurprisingly, the United States refuse the process led by Russia, for the unique reason that they didn't have anything to do with it, while the United Kingdom and France seek to impose institutions which would allow them to govern the country from the shadows.
