Four large Russian warships with marines aboard are moving into international water headed for the Mediterranean. Admiral Chabanenko is in charge of the mission, which the Russians are saying is simply in line with plans of military readiness. The website thenews.com.pk reports that “the deployment was not linked to the escalation of the situation in Syria. According to Interfax, “In Tartus, the ships are going to top up on supplies of fuel, water and foodstuffs.” A source added that “their deployment in the Mediterranean would last until the end of September.” It is believed that missile-equipped submarines will join the ships.
Yesterday, Russia officially announced that they were concerned about the situation in Syria and that it would not supply them with anymore arms. So this move towards Syria seemed alarming at first.
At present, Keeptalkinggreece.com reports that “The Russian ships are under the discreet surveillance of a Greek ship.”
There are conflicting stories that suggests that the mission of these ships is surrounded by a mystery. The Guardian Express will keep an eye on this situation.
