Russia Seen Sending Heavy Naval Firepower To The Mediterranean
Business Insider reported that Russia was seen sending anti-submarine warfare ships to the Mediterranean.
This comes during rising tensions between Russia and the West.
It is standard practice for any military to move supporting platforms into an area where it bases troops.
So the naval move into the Mediterranean could be simple protocol for protecting Russian servicemen in Syria.
The United States and Russia have become increasingly engaged in a war of words over Russia’s involvement in Syria.
Russia has recently threatened to retaliate to any US strikes.
