Russia Deploys 3 Nuclear-capable Bombers To Syria( Pic) by HolinessForever: 4:50pm On May 26
Moscow's Defense Ministry says Tu-22M3 planes will take part in training missions; deployment marks first time since Cold War that Russia has stationed heavy bombers in Mideast

MOSCOW (AP) — The Russian military said Tuesday it has deployed three nuclear-capable long-range bombers to its base in Syria, a move that could strengthen Moscow’s military foothold in the Mediterranean.

Russia’s Defense Ministry said that three Tu-22M3 bombers have arrived at the Hemeimeem air base, located in Syria’s coastal province of Latakia and the main hub for Moscow’s operations in the country.

The ministry said bomber crews would fly a series of training missions over the Mediterranean. The Tupolev Tu-22M3, code-named Backfire by NATO, is a supersonic twin-engine long-range bomber which is capable of carrying nuclear weapons and has a range exceeding 5,000 km (3,100 miles).

Russia has waged a military campaign in Syria since September 2015, allowing Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government to reclaim control over most of the country following a devastating civil war.

The Russian ministry said the runway at Hemeimeem had been extended to host the heavy bombers and a second runway has been modernized.

Russia also has expanded and modified a naval base in the Syrian port of Tartus, the only such facility that Russia currently has outside the former Soviet Union.

As part of President Vladimir Putin’s efforts to beef up Russia’s military amid tensions with the West, the Russian navy in recent years has revived the Soviet-era practice of constantly rotating its warships in the Mediterranean.

The bombers’ deployment marks the first time since Cold War times that Moscow has stationed heavy bombers in the region.

About 60 Tu-22M3s are estimated to remain in service with the Russian air force, and some have flown bombing missions to strike militants in Syria from their bases in Russia.

Russian media reports said that the Tu-22M3 could be modernized to carry the latest hypersonic missiles.

Russian is smart and knows how to protect its territory. They know that if they allow the west to destabilise Syria as they had done with Iraq, it will affect them.

I wish we had a strong force in Africa that could have prevented the US and NATO from destabilising Libya. Africa wouldn't be in this mess it has seen itself now.

Put an Eye on Damascus in Syria for the Isaiah 17:1 Prophecy . We wake one day and Damascus will be in ruins. Damascus will be Gone!

Watch out Northern Israel as the Gog Magog Collation begins to form to attack Israel from Northern Israel in Fulfillment of Ezekiel 38 and 39 Prophecy.

Watch out for Russia, Iran, Turkey and others as they make attempt to invade Israel from the northern part.

Put your Eyes in the Sky! Fix your Eyes on JESUS!We will be snatched away anytime! Anyday!

OMG! in 2021, someone still sharing nonsense outdated propaganda or what can I even call that Isaiah Nonesense prophecy? Mere brainwash by crooks who relocated from the caves and Asian axis. Where is Israel on the map sef? A place the UN does not even recognize but one brainwash bible already recognized it...

Not smart at all. The aircrafts can be breached by Islamic terrorists. They want to die. The aircraft themselves are vulnerable to all manner of more technical sabotage or espionage. Moscow already has proximity to Syria to ensure their interests are protected

Which stupid word of god? whose god? a mere paper god? or the one that was nailed on the cross by the same crooks? Follow your Ori, go back to your tradition and stop copying and pasting nonense up and down. The Abraham ideology is flawed already in the year 10,061/2021. The god that created satan but has no control over it abi? U want to take anything sersiouly from that same paper god? Pls use some brains if there is still any left.

Do you know anything about Russia airbase in Hmeimim?
That’s place is far from war front and if not for Putin close yeye relationship with Turkey president, those terrorists in Idlib, would have run away back to European and Asia countries they came from.
