Yes it is down for St Petersburg before sailing to Vladivostok on the Pacific coast. It will probably route through Mediterranean, stop at Tartus, Syria and then through the Suez Canal and onwards to Vladivostok.

Assad may not be the best but I do not agree with foreign countries arming a possible terrorist threat or groups. The one thing that has stuck out to me is the fact those rebels seem to be occupying cities which may force the Assad regime to shell. Its hard to say who is at fault. The rebels for pretty much hiding amongst the inhabitants of the cities or Assad for simly killing innocent people. It is a civil war and I don't see it ending quickly even with the UN pushing for ceasefires etc.

I don't think that the Russians want the hassle and have apparently unloaded the helos at Kaliningrad?

Syria-Bound Helicopters Unloaded at Russian Port. MOSCOW — Three refurbished Russian attack helicopters have been removed from the Alaed, a transport ship that was delivering them to Syria, the Russian news agency Interfax reported Friday. Interfax quoted an unnamed source saying that the trio of Mi-25 helicopters had been offloaded at the port of Baltiisk, in the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad on the Baltic Sea. “Three helicopters were unloaded from the Alaed during a brief stay at Baltiisk. The helicopters are likely to be moved to the 150th Aircraft Repair Plant in the town of Lyublino-Novoye outside Kaliningrad, where they will be kept, pending other decisions,” the source told Interfax. The Interfax report did not say when the helicopters had been removed from the ship. Earlier reports indicated that the Alaed had departed Baltiisk on July 18, sailing in a northwestern direction. The ship’s owner told Interfax that the ship would sail to St Petersburg, where it would take on additional cargo, and then continue on to the Far East. Last week Russia said it would freeze arms sales and deliveries to Syria while the conflict there escalates.
