Russia confirms plans to supply Syria with Yakhont missiles

Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov said on Saturday Russia has not dropped its plans to supply Syria with Yakhont missiles.

"The contract [on supplies] is in progress," Serdyukov told journalists in Vladivostok, Russia's Far East.

Russia earlier announced it would honor a 2007 contract on the delivery of several Bastion anti-ship missile systems armed with SS-N-26 Yakhont supersonic cruise missiles to Syria, despite efforts by Israel and the United States to stop the deal.

The Russians are still part of the Axis of Evil...never left it. One day all the Muslims they supply will attack them too and then they’ll be sorry...until then, they are scum.

The more yankyerhonk soviet crap these fools buy the better.

Try and pop a boat sitting at 600 meters waiting for you to reveal your launch position. Take out an unmanned obsolete cruiser running on a controller removed from a Hasbro toy with a million dollar missile.

Then just wait a minute or two.
