MOSCOW, November 25. /TASS/. Russia will move its air defense system S-400 Triumf to the Hmeimim air base in Syria, accommodating its air and space group, Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said on Wednesday.
"The S-400 air defense missile system will be brought to the Hmeimim base at the decision of the commander-in-chief," he said.
On Tuesday, a Russian Sukhoi-24M bomber was downed with an air-to-air missile launched from an F-16 fighter of the Turkish Air Force. One of the pilots died and the other was rescued and brought to the Russian base. A Russian Mi-8 helicopter was destroyed during the search and evacuation operation. One Marine serving in the army on contract was killed.
Turkey claims that the downed plane had violated its air space. The Russian Defense Ministry says the Sukhoi-24M stayed over Syria all the time and it was the Turkish fighter that violated the border during the attack.
The Russian General Staff has warned that Russia will be destroying all potentially dangerous targets over Syria and moved towards the Syrian shores its guided missile cruiser The Moskva armed with the Fort system (the sea-launched equivalent of S-300).
