Strengthening Russian air base in Syria called useless

The strengthening of the Russian military air base "Khmeimim" was called useless.

The appearance at the Russian military air base "Khmeimim" of shelters for aircraft and the construction of similar shelters for helicopters should make it possible to hide the amount of military aircraft located in Syria.

The reasoning about these "soft" hangars sounds a little false ... ", - comments on the article “Al masdar news»One of the users.
