“Russia knows who planned, ordered and paid for the drones attack on the military bases of Khmeimim and Tartus in Syria”, Vladimir Putin said at a meeting with the leaders of the print media and news agencies.
At the same time, the head of state noted that Turkey has nothing to do with the attack. This conclusion was made after a telephone conversation with Recep Erdogan.
On the night of January 6, 13 homemade drones attempted to attack the Russian military bases of Khmeimim and Tartus. 7 were shot down by the anti-aircraft missile and gun system “Pantsir-S1”. The remaining six were intercepted by specialists of electronic warfare.
