But now Russian Federation says it has got is revenge

Home-Made Drones Bombed a Russian Airbase, Defense Ministry Says

Two soldiers were in the attack according to the Defense Ministry.

The Defense Ministry said that 13 small drones, what they described as a "massive application of unmanned aerial vehicles", targeted two separate locations.

The Russian military either destroyed or took control of the UAVs used in the attack. The spokesperson also mentioned the militant attack against Russia's Khmeimim airbase in Syria on Dec 31.

Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry said that the technology used in those drones could only be obtained from a technologically advanced country.

Russian Federation launched its campaign in Syria in support of its ally President Bashar al-Assad in September 2015.

"So either the Russians are completely lying about bringing multiple drones down at the same time or if true, then the U.S. needs to figure out how they got the technology to do so despite us usually being on the forefront of this stuff and replicate it for our forces", he added. The agreement has helped reduce fighting significantly and contributed to warmer ties between Russian Federation and Turkey.

Two bodies recovered from stricken oil tanker
Footage of the rescue showed parts of the Sanchi still aflame, its hull and superstructure completely stripped of paint. The report came after the vessel's owner, the National Iranian Tanker Company (NITC) said Sanchi was unlikely to sink.

Following the drone attack, the Russian Defence Ministry sent letters to Turkey's military leaders, asking them to deploy military observers to help prevent further attacks from Idlib on Russian assets. We have a ideal understanding of that and will act in solidarity.There were provocateurs there, but they were not Turks....

Before his Thursday meeting with Russian media chiefs, Putin held a phone conversation with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan, during which the Khmeimim attacks were discussed.

Putin said the drones looked primitive but contained high-tech elements allowing precision satellite guidance and release of munitions. "These were provocations aimed at thwarting earlier agreements", Putin said.

The attack occurred a few days after mortar and rocket shelling of the Hemeimeem air base.

In a televised visit last month to the Hemeimeem air base where he declared victory over the Islamic State group, Putin praised the "excellent" performance of the Russian troops in Syria and he also ordered a partial withdrawal of the forces.
