Russia to defend its principal Middle East ally: Moscow takes Syria under its protection
by Ivan Safronov, July 28, 2006 Kommerzant, Moscow (original Russian) – 2006-06-02

The following report was published in the Russian daily Kommerzant in early June. It points to Russian military presence in the Eastern Mediterranean as well as support in the modernization of Syria’s air defense system, the modernization of Syrian tanks and ground forces. The question is whether in the current context, this military build-up of Syrian capabilities, supported by Russia, will act as a deterrent to an attack on Syria by Israel.
