Putin: Russian cruise missile-armed ships to remain in Syrian waters to prevent terrorist comeback

Putin: Russian cruise missile-armed ships to remain in Syrian waters to prevent terrorist comeback | 16 May 2018 | Russia will keep its warships - armed with Kalibr cruise missiles - in the Mediterranean to thwart the possible re-emergence of terrorist groups in Syria, President Vladimir Putin said, hailing the navy's operations overseas. Russia's standing naval task force, which includes warships equipped with Kalibr-class cruise missiles, will remain off Syrian shores on permanent deployment "given the persistent threat of terrorist incursions" in the country, Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday. Russia's naval presence in the Mediterranean has become a game-changer in combatting terrorism in Syria, Putin said, adding that "missile strikes as well as efficient action by our naval aircraft inflicted serious damage to terrorists."
