Russian President Vladimir Putin is sending an air defense system to Syria and a warship to the Mediterranean as tensions grow with Turkey.

Russian defense minister Sergei Shoigu confirmed the advanced S-400 air defense system was being deployed to the war torn country.

It will be taken to a Russian air base in Syria’s Latakia province. It also emerged today that Putin is deploying a warship to the Mediterranean.

It comes after Turkey shot down a Russian fighter jet which it claimed had violated its airspace.

The furious Russian president has broken off military contact with Turkey and dispatched the warship.

Russia says it will destroy “any targets representing a potential danger” to its military working in Syria.

As reported by the Daily Mail, Russian bombers will now also be escorted by jets while carrying out raids in Syria.

Pavel Felgenhauer, a Russian military analysts, said war with Turkey was ‘most likely’.

In a tense escalation of the Middle East crisis, Putin warned Turkey – a key member of Nato and ally of Britain – of “significant consequences.” standardmedia reported.
