Iranian media: Russia deployed Vodnik armored vehicles to Syria

The Russian Defense Ministry has sent a large number of Vodnik armored vehicles to the Syrian port of Tartus. These vehicles are intended for the army of the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad which is assisted by Moscow, as reported by the Iranian agency Fars.

It also states that Russia is allegedly planning to send additional equipment to the Khmeimim Air Base where the Russian Aerospace Forces’ aircraft are based.

On 29 December the ceasefire agreement established through mediation with Iran, Turkey, and the Russian Federation, went into effect in Syria.

However, just today, Russian servicemen have noted two violations of the ceasefire agreement in the Arabic country, and Turkish servicemen have recorded 14.
