Russian Federation has proof USA was behind drone attack on Syria base

Deputy Defense Minister Aleksandr Fomin said on October 25 that 13 drones were heading toward the Hmeimim air base in Latakia Province when a U.S. Poseidon-8 intelligence plane flying over the Mediterranean Sea "took control" of them, according to Russian news agencies.

The drones were moving in a common combat battle deployment while a U.S. Poseidon-8 military aircraft was loitering offshore near Syria, Fomin said, speaking at the plenary session of the Xiangshan security forum in Beijing. "It undertook manual control".

The Kremlin said on Thursday that it was very alarmed by a report from the Russian Defence Ministry alleging that a U.S. spy plane coordinated a drone attack on Russia's Hmeymim air base in Syria in January.

"This needs to stop: not to fight high-tech weapons to terrorists and good equipped terrorists need to stop them equip", - concluded the Deputy head of the defense Department. Russia's Defense Ministry said that the solutions used by the militants could be received only from a technologically advanced country and warned about the danger of repeating such attacks in any country of the world. The attack was successfully repelled: 7 drones were downed, and control over 6 drones was gained through electronic warfare systems.

Peskov added that the incident will likely be raised in the meeting between US President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart President Vladimir Putin during their meeting in Paris on November 11.
