Haaretz reported on Friday that PM Benjamin Netanyahu had asked Russian PM Vladimir Putin to cancel the sale of long-range surface-to-sea cruise missiles to the Syrian Army.
Despite Israel's objections, Russia will not cancel its sale of advanced missiles to Syria, the Kremlin announced on Sunday.
Haaretz reported on Friday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had asked his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, to cancel the sale of long-range surface-to-sea cruise missiles to the Syrian Army.
"Lately, some Israeli media outlets have been actively disseminating information distorting Russia's position on the implementation of its obligations to Syria, including in the sphere of military and technical cooperation," Prikhodko said. "I would like to stress that the Russian Federation honors all the agreements that were previously signed between Russia and Syria."
"At time of the withdrawal from East Europe, the NATO secretary general promised the USSR it could be confident that NATO would not expand over its current boundaries," Putin said. "And where is it? I asked them [NATO officials] about this. They have nothing to say. They deceived us in the rudest way." Russia-U.S. relations face a lot of problems, Putin said. "We had just come to terms that there would be no missiles [NATO missile defense systems] in Poland...but it was suddenly announced that the same [missile defense system deployment] was planned for other European countries." "I think it [the Munich speech] was useful. Because I said the truth... They [Western countries] told us one thing, but did another. They spoofed us in the full sense of this world," the premier said

Good. Israel will think twice before attacking... his ships would meet the bottom of the sea if they were to try.
Not a big surprise, since Russia have a big presence in the port of Tartus... IN SYRIA...
