If the Syrian regime is changed by force or if Russia doesn’t like the outcome, it most likely will respond by selling S-300s to Iran, DEBKAfile quoted Ruslan Pukhov, who sits on the Russian Defense Ministry’s advisory board and heads a defense affairs think tank in Moscow, as warning on July 4.
Pukhov reasoned that the fall of the Syrian government would significantly increase the chances of a strike on Iran its foes and that “resuming S-300 shipments to Iran may be a very timely decision.”
Russia also lashed out at the Western position on Syria, saying it could aggravate the situation to the point of war.
The Western position could lead to further violence and ultimately a very big war, Zee News quoted Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov as saying.
To remedy that fear, Russia just unveiled a new and advanced variation of a cruise missile that can be launched from a standard naval container, which Israel is concerned will find its way into the hands of terror organizations. The system is comprised of a launcher and an SS-25 cruise missile stored within a standard container, which can be loaded onboard any cargo ship. The launcher is operated within minutes and can then launch its missile towards the given target.
