Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appears to have been quite successful in petitioning the Russian government against delivering S-300 air defense systems to Syria. While the USA hasn't attacked again, Israel has been attacking Syria multiple times a week ever since. Some 28 Israeli aircraft fired around 60 air-to-surface rockets in a massive overnight strike in Syria, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

The S-300 missile system fires missiles from trucks and is created to shoot down military aircraft and short and medium-range ballistic missiles.

Earlier, the Ambassador of Syria in Russian Federation has declared that anti-aircraft s-300 is already a month are functioning on the territory of the Arab Republic.

Putin's foreign affairs adviser Yuri Ushakov said Friday the deal between Iran, Russia and other members of the Moscow-dominated Eurasian Economic Union is set to be signed next week.

He was enormous in their semi-final win over Munster, making 20 tackles and constantly slowing down ball. Racing 92 - runners-up two seasons ago - are looking to claim their first title in the club's history.

On Tuesday, Trump announced he would be reimposing sanctions on Iran, which Iran pointed out are illegal and against United Nations Security Council resolutions. Netanyahu put heavy pressure on Putin not to provide the Syrian regime with the missiles. Reuters says the authorities "use the event to boost patriotic feeling and show the world and potential buyers of military hardware how a multi-billion dollar modernisation programme is changing the face of the Russian military". "Today, May 9, Russian Federation celebrates the anniversary of the victory over Nazism in 1945, a symbolic and complex day", Meghin said in a radio interview.

The Kremlin says that Russian Federation and its ex-Soviet allies will sign a free trade pact with Iran.

Asked about the fact that the Israeli attacks in Syria were serving Russia, Meghin replied: "It seems to be the case".

On Putin's insistence that Netanyahu observe the military parade with him Wednesday, Meghin said: "Putin is under pressure today; he is an outcast and has been severely punished for Ukraine and Syria".
