(Worthy News) - Russia provided the advanced S-300 air defense system to Syria’s military free of charge, transferring three battalions with eight launchers each to the Assad regime, Russia’s state news agency TASS reported Monday.
The source added that the systems were provided free of charge, along with 100 surface-to-air guided missiles for each battalion, 300 in all.
