Russia Says It Knows Who Ordered The Mysterious Drone Attack On Their Base It Wasn’t Turkey

After the mortar attack and then the drone attack on Russia's Khmeimim Airbase, Putin says he knows who was responsible for the attacks.

My two cents would point at Saudi and some off the shelf military drones or Israel.. I doubt either would have done the attack without knowledge from some deep state element in the USA or the UK.


Recent attacks on Russia’s Khmeimim Airbase in Syria were a provocation aimed at undermining the country’s relations with its partners Turkey and Iran and the peaceful settlement of the Syrian crisis, Vladimir Putin said.

“Those were provocations aimed at disrupting the earlier agreements, in the first place. Secondly, it was about our relations with our partners – Turkey and Iran. It was also an attempt to destroy those relations,” the Russian President said during a meeting with the editors-in-chief of Russian papers and news agencies in Moscow. “We have a perfect understanding of that and will act in solidarity.”

“There were provocateurs there, but they were not Turks,” Putin said, refuting earlier reports saying the attacks on the Russian airbase were carried out by Turkoman units backed by Ankara. “We know who they are. We know whom and how much they paid for these provocations,” Putin said, without naming the organizers of the attacks.

Russian military sites in Syria were targeted in two major attacks in the past two weeks, one on New Year’s Eve and another on January 6. The first assault, reportedly carried out by an infiltration squad armed with mortars, resulted in two Russian servicemen being killed and damage to warplanes at Khmeimim Airbase. The second involved 13 drones armed with bomblets, which were all either shot down or forced to land via means of electronic warfare by Russian forces.

According to the head of state, the attacks on Khmeimim Airbase were “well-prepared.”

“We know when and where those unmanned aerial vehicles were handed over and how many there were,” he said.

“Those aircraft were only camouflaged – I want to emphasize this – to look like handicraft production. In fact, it is quite obvious that there were elements of high-tech nature there,” Putin said.

Another article which covers the USA/Russian relationship and also includes Putin's thoughts on the attack.


"It [normalization of ties] does not depend on us. We are ready… but the internal political situation in the United States is not settling down. We see that and understand that the 'Russian card' is played in US political life, the incumbent US president [Donald Trump] is constantly threatened with impeachment and the imaginary intervention of Russia is used as a reason for it," Putin noted.

Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry said that in the small hours of January 6 Russian military facilities in Hmeymim and Tartus came under terrorists’ drones. All UAVs were either destroyed or put under control by Russian military personnel. The Defense Ministry said the solutions used by the militants had been obtained from a technologically advanced country. It warned of the risk of more such attacks in any other country around the world.
The ministry also said the drones that tried to attack Hmeymim and Tartus had been launched from the area of Muazzar, in the southwestern part of the de-escalation zone Idlib, held by the armed groups of the so-called moderate opposition.

In this connection the Russian Defense Ministry dispatched messages to the chief of the Turkish Armed Forces’ General Staff Hulusi Akar and chief of the National Intelligence Organization Hakan Fidan.

US 'Not Involved' With Drone Attacks on Russian Bases in Syria - Pentagon


WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - The United States was not involved in any way with the recent drone attacks on Russian bases in Syria, Joint Staff Director Kenneth McKenzie said during a press briefing on Thursday.

"I can tell you unequivocally that the United States was not involved in any way with the drone attack on the Russian base at any time," McKenzie said.

The US Defense Department said it would not comment when asked if the United States knows who was responsible for the attacks.


Sounds like a great partner for defeating ISIS, No ?

Some of the drones were forced to land by using "electronic warfare". That's kinda pretty cool.

Hacking your enemies drone and landing it for them? That's ultimate superiority there.

If those goat humpers (Al Qaeda/ISIS) received those RC toys from the US do we not deserve the blame?

I mean we have been arming our "enemy" for decades so really it is no surprise.

JAMMING is not HACKING. Without a radio signal they drop liek stones. OR you have a stronger SIGNAL CONTROLLER and use it to take control. Its not HACKING though.

It doesn't require much outside of an eBay budget to build and field a drone swarm packed with explosives.

Not surprised the ordered were signed by mcCain, a former pilot! Well known for having nearly sunk an AIRCRAFT CARRIER then exonerated, as well as having surprisingly survived 5 plane crashes, and much less for downing planes over EGYPT and UKRAINE in past years. Where next, Cain?!

US spy plane circled between Russian airbase & port facility during Syria drone attack – MoD

Moscow has noted “strange coincidences” surrounding a terrorist attack on a Russian airbase and port facility in Syria, in which guided combat drones were deployed by militants. These include a US spy plane spotted in the area.

The Russian Ministry of Defense consciously didn’t point any fingers when talking about the January 6 attack on Russia’s airbase and port facility in Syria, the Tuesday statement said, but added that technology used in the attack was telling.

......

The ministry noted that a US Navy Poseidon reconnaissance aircraft was flying over the region between the Russian bases in Latakia and Tartus for some four hours around the time of the drone attack. An earlier Pentagon statement allowed the Russian military to “take a new look at some strange coincidences” surrounding the incident, it said.

Ah I figured if they were able to take control they must've been hacked.

So all it takes is a stronger signal and you can steal control of a drone?

Not really. It is just jamming and disrupting the signal. The drones operators just lose the signal and the drones lose control/inputs and glide to the ground.

yes. also a frequency modulator to mimic its operators helps.
