Russia tells U.S. to think ‘carefully’ before hitting Syrian army

Russia’s Defence Ministry said on Thursday the United States should carefully consider the consequences of strikes on Syrian army positions because such strikes would obviously threaten Russian servicemen.

Commenting on Russia’s S-300 air defense complexes recently deployed to Syria, the ministry said in a statement that their crews would hardly have time to detect the exact flight paths of missiles or from what direction they were launched.

The ministry also mentioned a more sophisticated air defense system, the S-400, which safeguards Russia’s Hmeymim air base in Syria.
