Russian Federation to supply Syria with missile system

The downing of the plane came just hours after Russia announced it had reached a deal with Turkey to avert a Russian-backed Syrian government offensive against the northwestern province of Idlib, controlled by a mix of radical groups and Turkey-backed armed opposition.

Shoigu meanwhile said "we are certain that the realisation of these measures will cool the "hot heads" and will keep them from poorly thought-out actions which threaten our servicemen".

Russian Federation last month hinted it would supply the weapons to President Bashar al-Assad, over Israeli objections, after Western military strikes on Syria.

U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton said on Monday that Russian plans to supply Syria with an S-300 missile system would be a "significant escalation" by Moscow and that he hopes it will reconsider.

Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that recent findings by the Russian military showed an Israeli jet "deliberately" pushed the Russian Il-20 into the line of fire, enabling its downing. Moreover, the Israelis misinformed the Russians about the location of their targets.

Putin informed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad about the missile delivery in a phone call on Monday, according to a statement issued by Syria's presidency.

They also said radar and communication systems will be added near Syria to monitor potential attacks.

Peskov said the measures were "not directed against third countries but towards defending our own military".

"One thing should be clear - if someone fires on our planes, we will destroy them", Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman was reported as saying last April.

Russian Federation already has its own S-300 air defense system in Syria, along with the more advanced S-400 system. "It doesn't matter if it's an S-300 or an S-700", he said. "After you remove the threat, which is basically what will be done, we're back to square one", Yadlin told Bloomberg news in April. The system has been supplied by Moscow to Tehran, and deployed by the Russian army in Syria alongside its more advanced iteration, the S-400.

According to the halturnerradioshow.com, nearly seven Ilyushin Il-76 military transporters of Russian Air Force have arrived at Khmeimim military airbase on 22 September.

"The Russian side proceeds from the fact that the actions by the Israeli air force were the main reason for the tragedy", a statement said.

Moscow says Israeli F-16 planes which struck Latakia in western Syria on September 17 later used the landing Russian Il-20 surveillance plane as "cover", which resulted in the larger Il-20 being hit by a Syrian missile.

A Russian Defense Ministry spokesman said on Sunday that the Israeli Air Force and those who made the decision to use the Il-20 aircraft as cover are exclusively to blame for its crash. Israel flies missions with relative ease over Syria, given the latter's largely antiquated air defenses, and Israeli officials recently admitted to carrying out more than 200 bombing raids inside Syria over the past two years.
