Despite getting praises from different world powers, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that Moscow will not hesitate to deploy troops and that Russian bases in Syria are still well-protected.

“Of course, if such a need arises, Russia can, in several hours, build up its forces in Syria to a size capable of dealing with an escalating situation and use the entire range of means at its disposal,” RT quoted Putin.
“We wouldn’t like that. A military escalation is not our choice. We hope the parties involved would show common sense and that both the government and the opposition will stick to the peace process,” the president added in relation to the outcome of the country’s campaign against terrorists in Syria for five months. Furthermore, it can be noted that Putin said that the country was operating in the region within a deadline.
“We have created the conditions for a peace process. We have established constructive and positive cooperation with the US and a number of other countries, with respectable opposition forces in Syria, which really want to end the war and find a political solution of the conflict. You, Russian soldiers, paved that way,” the Russian President announced to troops who were part of the campaign.
Putin is confident that because of Russia’s support, Syrian Army is now able to fight against terrorist forces better. They can also possibly reclaim terrorist-controlled territories. Nonetheless, even with such ceasefire in place, Russia has not stopped developing and improving its military hardware.
In another report by RT, Moscow is reportedly testing 6-Mach Zircon hypersonic missile for 5G subs. A top defense industry source confirmed to RIA Novosti that Russia has started the initial trials of a sea-based Zircon hypersonic cruise missile. The mentioned missile has the capacity to fly five to six times compared to sound.
