Russia Balks at Arming Syria With Missiles After Netanyahu Talks

Russian Federation is not in talks with the Syrian government about supplying advanced S-300 missile defense systems to Syria in an effort to bolster the war-torn Arab nation's defensive capabilities, a top Kremlin aide says. While the U.S. hasn't attacked again, Israel has been attacking Syria multiple times a week ever since. S-300s could have significantly complicated the Israeli strikes.

Russian media on Friday were actively circulating a video released by the Israeli military that showed an Israeli missile destroying one such system - a Russian-made Pantsir S-1 air defence battery - on Thursday in Syria.

On Tuesday, Trump announced he would be reimposing sanctions on Iran, which Iran pointed out are illegal and against United Nations Security Council resolutions.

At the time it was making the payments, Wyden said, the company was negotiating with FDA over the approval. Novartis hired Cohen's consulting firm in 2017 to provide insight on Trump's health-care plans.

Putin expressed his support to the address noted.

According to Asharq Al-Awsat, Ryabkov met with senior Iranian officials and conveyed to them what Netanyahu had told President Putin that same day in Moscow.

Just before Netanyahu met with Putin, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin said that a decision had not yet been made on supplying Syria with advanced air defense systems. A total of 70 projectiles, including 60 air-to-surface rockets and more than 10 surface-to-surface missiles, hit Iranian military targets and Syrian air-defense systems near Damascus and in the south of the country on Thursday morning, the Russian military said in a statement. "Putin is holding the celebrations as he faces crises in Europe as well as in Syria". This would seemingly underscore Syria's case that they need an upgrade for basic defense of their airspace. "The Israeli, Russian and Iranian players will have to understand each other and discuss the future of Syria; therefore, the meeting is being held in order to try to advance Putin's initiative". The West is not talking to him.
