Moscow’s S-300 Double Bluff in Syria


Russia is bluffing, aka lying, about its new S-300 systems in Syria.  We know this as a certainty because the equipment belonged to different S-300 variants. Also, only four launchers arrived whereas it was supposed to be eight.  Once again, one must ask why Russia would not supply Syria what it had promised. Is it… Continue reading Moscow’s S-300 Double Bluff in Syria

Salisbury CW Attack / Syria / Iran / Russia Ad Hoc Update (164)


Anonymous expert compilation, analysis, and reporting. Of the “up to 12” S-300 batteries, Russia supposedly delivered on understrength battery.  It will take 3 months to train Syrian operators.  Most likely Russia will be withdrawing from Syria at that time. </end editorial> Muscovy’s reaction to Amb Hutchison’s comments is tediously predictable, and another example of Russian… Continue reading Salisbury CW Attack / Syria / Iran / Russia Ad Hoc Update (164)

Russian S-300 Begin To Arrive In Syria


03.10.2018 At the end of September – in early October, using the Flightradar service, volunteers from the international intelligence community InformNapalm recorded more than 4 flights of heavy An-124 transport aircraft from the 566th Military Aviation Regiment (VTAP) (IV / 41495) of the 12th Division of the BTA 61 Russian Army Air Force. Aircraft An-124 with… Continue reading Russian S-300 Begin To Arrive In Syria

Anonymous expert compilation, analysis, and reporting. Of note, the pictures of the possible anti-satellite missiles seem to be disappearing from Russian websites. None of the pictures I have here are from Russian sites, so they should remain viable.  </end editorial> The only noteworthy propaganda item overnight was Bondarev’s brief on combat losses in Syria –… Continue reading Salisbury CW Attack / Syria / Iran / Russia Ad Hoc Update (162)

Salisbury CW Attack / Syria / Iran / Russia Ad Hoc Update (161)


Anonymous expert compilation, analysis, and reporting. </end editorial> While UK media publish excerpts from Col Skripal’s memoir, being published days from now, and elaborate on further disclosures about the GRU covert ops team, and despite the tiredness of Peskov, Muscovy’s propagandists produce a repeat barrage of the same nonsense, following the old NSDAP dictum of“repeating… Continue reading Salisbury CW Attack / Syria / Iran / Russia Ad Hoc Update (161)

Russia May Prop Up Assad With Eight S-300 Systems


In what may be a wee bit of overkill, Russia may supply Syria with up to 8 x S-300 systems.   An S-300 can cover almost all of Israel from Damascus, with only one system.  Initially, Russia would probably supply two and have four on the ground shortly thereafter.  I keep contemplating how Israel is going… Continue reading Russia May Prop Up Assad With Eight S-300 Systems

Salisbury CW Attack / Syria / Iran / Russia Ad Hoc Update (159)


Anonymous expert compilation, analysis, and reporting. </end editorial> Definitely another self-inflicted propaganda “epic fail” week, in some respects probably worse than the previous two, as any goodwill in Israel will have rapidly evaporated this week. Denials at the highest level in Muscovy on the identity of Col. Chepiga. Diaspora website Rosbalt reports a witchhunt in Russia to… Continue reading Salisbury CW Attack / Syria / Iran / Russia Ad Hoc Update (159)
