In response to the what Putin has called a ‘tragic incident’ that caused the death of the crew of the radio reconnaissance aircraft and the IL-20 VKS RF warhead, Rusvesna reports that the Russian military has made a major move.
Effective September 19th, the Russian Federation has announced the closure of a large area of the eastern Mediterranean for the movement of military aircraft and ships until the 26th of September.
According to the official version, this step is justified by the beginning of unscheduled maneuvers of the navy and aviation off the coast of Syria.
