so why would Russia risk losing all that money and send them, when they're useless in a civil war, and there is no longer any sign of the West trying to impose a no fly zone, or take any other action. There's no reason for them to risk that kind of money.
And the Soviets supplied Egypt and Syria aid during the war as well. Why leave that out?

A number of sources have reported that Syrian and Iranian missiles have been transferred to Hezbollah through Syria.
So what? Syria and Hezbollah are allies. If Syria wants to give Hezbollah weapons they have that right.

Except Russia has said they weren't going to send any S-300s until at least next year, due to lack of payment, and because of fears of further destabilizing the region.
