MOSCOW, Russia – Russia’s Hmeymim airbase and Tartus naval base, as well as Russian servicemen deployed in Syria, are under firm protection as the United States is anticipated to carry out airstrikes in Syria in response to an alleged chemical weapon attack in the city of Douma, First deputy chairman of the Russian upper house’s Defense Committee, Yevgeny Serebrennikov said Wednesday to Sputnik.

“As the Defense Ministry has already pointed out, the Russian military bases in Hmeymim and Tartus are under firm protection,” he said.

“At the same time, we expect that in the event of US strikes, if any, the lives of our servicemen will not be in danger,” he continued.
