Russia promises S-300 to Iran, Syria

After Olmert’s visit to Moscow and relinquishing a major land plot in Jerusalem to Russians, their Foreign Ministry commented on the expected sale of S-300 SAM batteries to Syria and Iran.
The statement included two qualifications. One is that Russians don’t sell advanced weapons to problematic regions. Iran, however, is not considered a problematic region in Russia. Two, Russia supplies advanced weapons to maintain the balance of power. Certainly, Iran needs S-300 to maintain balance of power with Israel’s offensive capabilities, especially after Israel purchased F-35 aircraft.
Contrary to the jolly opinions expressed in Israeli media, Russians seem to confirm the sale of S-300 to Iran and Syria.
