    MOSCOW, September 21. /TASS/. Russia’s heavy aircraft-carrying missile cruiser The Admiral Kuznetsov will join the naval task force in the Mediterranean soon, Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said Wednesday.

    "At the moment the Russian task force in the Eastern Mediterranean consists of no less than six combat ships and three or four logistic ships from all fleets. To build up the group’s combat capabilities we plan to reinforce it with The Admiral Kuznetsov-led group," Shoigu said a meeting of the Defense Ministry’s board.

    Russia’s Navy has been permanently present in the Eastern Mediterranean since 2013, Shoigu recalled.

    Russia is trying annihilate Aleppo rebels before Euphrates Shield forces reach it, hence the heavy bombing of the entire city.

    the SU-33s and MiG-29Ks along with SU-30SMs, SU-35s in the region will jointly strike missions and provide protection for ships and our forces deployed in Syria, so it is not just about the strike missions.
