Russia Claims US Led Drones Toward Russian Base in Syria

The official addressed the statement of Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin, who had said on Thursday that the Russian airbase had been simultaneously attacked by 13 combat drones that were controlled remotely from a US Poseidon 8 aircraft.

Russia has alleged that a US military aircraft had taken control of drones over western Syria in January and attempted to have them attack the Russian military base there. "During all this time the American Poseidon-8 reconnaissance plane patrolled the Mediterranean Sea area for eight hours".

He explained that the drone switched to manual mode after confronting Russia's electronic countersystems, indicating that they were operated by a "technologically advanced country that has access to such tools; they can not be made in the Syrian desert".

Russia says a USA spy plane orchestrated a militant drone attack on a Russian airbase in Syria back in January this year.

"This needs to stop: not to fight high-tech weapons to terrorists and good equipped terrorists need to stop them equip", - concluded the Deputy head of the defense Department.

It's the first time Moscow directly accuses the United States of coordinating an attack on Russian assets in Syria. Meanwhile, the defense Ministry stressed that the solutions used by militants, could be obtained only from technologically advanced countries and warned of the danger of recurrence of such attacks in any country of the world. Six drones were destroyed, while Russian forces got control of seven, landing them at Hmeimim for further examination.
