Russia's Most Syrian Adventure #53

Note: there's a Mi-35M attack helicopter.

There are conflicting reports as to what is going on  between the Free Syrian Army and Russia.  On the one hand, Russia claims its providing air cover for the FSA's offensive and also supplying weapons.  On the other, they turned around and contradicted that they were supplying.

Russia is digging in for the long haul in the Syrian war.  Quagmire?

Russia has also criticized American policy in Syria.

This is a Russian sub passing through the Bosporus and tailed by a Turkish patrol boat.

A Russian warship fired warning shots at a Turkish fishing ship. Supposedly to avoid a collision.  Apparently only small arms were used though.

Turkey has stated their patience is wearing thin.
