What is Putin up to? The actions of the Russian navy near Syria have caused alarm among the Turks


In the Eastern Mediterranean, there is an increased activity of the Russian navy, causing alarm not only among the Turkish special services, but also at British bases in Cyprus. This is reported by the Greek news agency Pentapostagma.


Currently, the Russian Navy has at least 9 weapons in the region, 4 of which are warships and 3 are submarines.

Similar activity is observed today at the Khmeimim airbase, as well as in the Idlib province, which may indicate the imminent start of large-scale hostilities. This was previously reported by the Syrian media.

Judging by the radio silence, Russian naval warships are preparing for operations in the eastern Mediterranean, which causes particular concern among the Turks - what could Putin be up to? Some Russian experts believe that we can talk about preparations for a special military action, although there were no official comments on this matter. Such activity of the Russian fleet in the area where warships of France, Greece and Turkey are located causes serious concern for Erdogan.

This morning, a Russian Russian transport plane flew to Syria to deliver additional weapons after it became known about the mobilization of the forces of the 4th Syrian motorized brigade - it plans to strike in the areas of al-Muzairib, al-Yadud. Tell Shihab, Kharab al-Shahm, al-Fawar, Zayzun, al-Ajmi in the western part of the Daraa province. Facilities in Idlib, where hundreds of Turkish soldiers and 450 weapons systems were deployed yesterday, will also be attacked.

This brings to mind the recent death of a Russian brigadier general, which angered the Kremlin. Some Russian media reported that Ankara may be involved in this murder.

The Russians have their own plans in the Mediterranean and they do not want Turkish sovereignty to be established here - Russia does not want to lose its "clients" in this region, as well as the naval routes to Suez, which may soon be opened.

    What is Putin up to? The actions of the Russian navy near Syria have caused alarm among the Turks

    - And what does the "Turks' alarm" have to do with it ??? - And they forgot about the 6th US fleet, or what ??? And French and Italian ???

    Such activity of the Russian fleet in the area where warships of France, Greece and Turkey are located causes serious concern for Erdogan.

    - And why all this can cause "serious concern for Erdogan" ???
    - Well, how ... - this is a trap for our Russian Navy ... - And all NATO members at once will pounce in this trap-place on our fleet ... - No serious base; There is no Russian naval base in the Mediterranean Sea (and the pathetic Russian base in Khmeimim ... - just doesn't count) .. - Well, the "strategy" ... - most likely ... - another Russian disorder (then, as always .. .- everything will be blamed on the heroic actions of our sailors) ...
    - Moreover, our naval forces are cut off from their bases by the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles, where Russia is not the owner .. - We are not the masters in the Black Sea either; and even in the Mediterranean ... - and even more so ...
    - That will work out ... - And what will happen ??? - And it will turn out to be the fable of I.A.Krylov "The Wolf in the Kennel" ... - Napoleon nervously smokes on the sidelines ... -Hahah ...

      Irina, what is the 6th fleet yet?
      With the saturation of the coastal defense with anti-ship missiles, the 6th fleet is closer than a thousand km to Syria.

        - Is that you, or what ... - I put a minus "out of mind" ???

        closer than a thousand kilometers, it will not approach Syria.

        - So, quite powerful ... - French and Italian navies ... - are doomed to hang around their berths forever ... - after all, they have to Syria ... - just a stone's throw ...
        - And as soon as they poke from their berths into the Mediterranean Sea, then ... then ... then the coastal defense (question ... - whose ???) ... - will immediately smash them ... with anti-ship missiles .. ...

      Have you already forgotten that the French support Egypt, which has practically entered into a confrontation with Turkey? Didn't I already write to you that the participation of two French planes on the side of Egypt is not a microscopic aid, but a sign of the participation of a nuclear country of a NATO country?

    Some kind of nonsense. The Turks will destroy everything that floats there in one fell swoop, just as they stopped the offensive in Idlib and kicked out the Wagnerians from Libya.

      Then the doctrine of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the USSR Andrei Gromyko will work - instead of the Bosphorus, we can build two more straits, only Istanbul, unfortunately, will not exist.

                Are there no Chechens on the part of the Mujahideen? Chechens were on the side of the Nazis in the Second World War. The last pro-German "partisan" was caught in 1974. Forgot how the Chechens cut off the heads of Russian boys in the 90s?

                  Of course, there are a lot of bastards on either side. For this, the guys from the south of Russia are doing what they should. And if they meet their fellow countrymen there, I wish our children success.

          The so-called tribute is called grants and subsidies. Not only Chechnya receives them, but a good half of the regions of the Russian Federation.

        And who will destroy the NATO country? You from Russia can only throw caps, five planes in Syria, a Su-35 and a couple of boats. Disgraced with Kuzya, the entire article from Prigozhin is designed for the domestic market for the Uryaks.

        ... the doctrine of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the USSR Andrei Gromyko ..

        Everything related to the USSR, especially in the international arena, is an absolute taboo. The Russian Foreign Ministry will not apply anything and nothing, they are not evil commies, but white and fluffy liberal democrats, capitalists and partners. Most likely, they will help the Turks with the development of deposits, and they, in turn, will close a couple of Orthodox churches and, through their proxies, sentence some other official. good

    Uh ... only it seems to me that half of the silhouettes are non-combat?

    If you recall history, then an analogy suggests itself with the repeatedly used insidious move of the Russian fleet.
    Come somewhere and sink your ships or ship. In general, it is possible that something has drowned and now they are working with it.

      Russians were drowned by strangers much more often. And this was especially true for the Turkish.

    Ships with good missile weapons are closer to the shore, support ships and a patrol boat are to the side.
    That means they will take part in the response for the general.
    And the Turks understand why they are worried: the tribes are resettled there by the allied, Turkoman, and the Turkish troops are probably located where they should not be.
    The ships will carry out "artillery preparation", Balls and Bastions will be added. And then the Syrians and Iranians will go to occupy the territory. With the assistance of the VKS.

      Why would ships with good missile weapons stand closer? If they are good, then they could have zhahnat from not too far away. The location is as if Syria is a continuous enemy coast in terms of sights, and further from the coast and not far from the allies. It seemed to me that the supply vessels would also need to be covered, or you look, some more will drown.
