To reconcile irreconcilable
The NATO "the flying radar" scans space over the sea coast and in the depth of the Syrian territory to find out where the surface-to-air missile S-300 missile systems transferred by Russia will be placed. The USA and the countries of the West is outright alarmed transfer of S-300 by Russia to the Syrian air defenses in response to death on September 17 of crew of the plane of radio-electronic investigation and fight (REB) Il-20 because of actions of the Israeli military. Assurances of Moscow are that delivery of effective air defense systems is not directed against the third countries and is necessary for strengthening of safety of the Russian military on Hmeymim base, Americans and their allies ignore. The U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo and the chief of the Pentagon James Mattis accuse Russia of irresponsibility and claim that such step will inevitably cause military escalation. The president Vladimir Putin reported to the Syrian colleague Bashar al-Assad in telephone conversation that Russia will be engaged in development of the Syrian air defenses and will strengthen their fighting opportunities on September 24. In turn, the Minister of Defence of the Russian Federation Sergey Shoygu said that besides deliveries of ZRK S-300 of division of REB of Armed forces of Russia will suppress over the water area of the Mediterranean Sea satellite navigation, onboard radar stations and communication systems of the fighting aircraft attacking objects in the Syrian territory.

New rules of the game Moreover as Abi Nader considers, dense protection of the Syrian sky with use of means of radio-electronic fight "is equitable to vital interests of Russia and will serve strengthening of safety in East Mediterranean". Abi Nader rejected the statements of Washington and Tel Aviv about that, as if such reaction of Moscow to an incident about Il-20 will enhance risk of military confrontation in the region. "It is indisputable that with deliveries of S-300 complexes to Syria in the Middle East new rules of the game which are not pleasant to the United States and Israel come into effect — the expert noted. — Their discontent is caused by fears that emergence of modern air defense systems in Syria allegedly will strengthen positions of Iran and Hezbollah. However, as the Lebanese general believes, it will not occur as Iran together with Turkey and Russia are connected by a framework of the Astana process and are guarantors of truce in Syria. Abi Nader is convinced that "Russia to a zainta
