Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad discussed by telephone the delivery of Russian s-300 to Syria. In addition to air missile, there will begin work an automatic system for recognition of aircraft and stations of electronic warfare, which will begin to counteract aircraft attacking Syrian targets. The Kremlin stressed that all these measures are not aimed against third countries. Russia intends to strengthen the security of its military. How and in what terms — reported to the Minister of defence.

The reaction was not long in coming. The Russian defense Ministry, on behalf of the Russian President is stepping up the combat capabilities of the Syrian air defense.

"Syrian armed forces in the next two weeks will be transferred to advanced anti-aircraft missile system s-300. It is able to seize the means of air attack at ranges over 250 km, and at the same time hitting multiple air targets," — said the Minister of defence of Russia Sergey Shoigu.

To increase the capabilities of the Syrian air defense — that is the main goal of action of the Ministry of defence, what the Russian President told the head of Syria in a telephone conversation. And, as stated by the Minister of defence, forced.

"In 2013, at the request of the Israeli side, we suspended the delivery to Syria of s-300 complex, which was prepared for shipping, and Syrian soldiers have been trained. Today the situation has changed. Not our fault," — said Shoigu.

The s-300 anti-aircraft missiles. A range of over 250 kilometers. Able to track and destroy multiple targets. Though near Damascus, at least in the Golan heights these SAMS will block their radar field and kill zone almost the entire territory of Israel. According to experts, in the case that the Syrian skies closed, this will radically change the military-political situation in the region. Now in Syria have s-200. They are not United in one system. To make Syria's air defense in order of effectiveness, in addition to anti-aircraft missiles, armed Arab Republic will be the automated control systems.

"It will provide centralized control of all forces and means of air defense of Syria, monitoring the traffic situation and operational results of target designation. Most importantly, will be guaranteed the identification of all Russian aircraft by Syrian air defense," — said Shoigu.

That is, the Syrian air defense will be able to answer the aggression of the individual complexes, and the entire system at once. And then there is the third measure announced by the Russian Minister of defence. Its implementation will make useless any electronic devices in the sky over the Mediterranean sea.

- In areas adjacent to areas of Syria over the Mediterranean sea will be electronic jamming of satellite navigation, airborne radar and communication systems, combat aircraft, attacking objects on Syrian territory.

And implementation of s-300 and centralization of air management and monitoring, and electronic suppression – measures to which Russia is forced to resort in this situation.

"You know that with Israel, the Russian Federation relations advanced enough, and Israel is the first country in the region with which the Russian military, according to the decision of Putin and Netanyahu, began operational coordination. And all this worked before the tragedy that occurred earlier," — said the press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov.

According to Sergei Shoigu, the measures "will cool the hot heads and keep them from rash acts that threaten our military". Otherwise, says the head of the defense Ministry, "Russia will have to react in accordance with the prevailing situation".

17 September 2018 over the Mediterranean air defense system Syria shot down a Russian reconnaissance aircraft Il-20. On Board were 15 officers, all of them died. On 23 September, the Ministry of defence presented the minute-by-minute chronology of the disaster Il-20, putting the blame on the collapse of the Israeli air force, which framed the Il-20 under attack Syrian air defenses.
