Russia - Kremlin Sending Syrian Regime Reinforcements Via Turkey (Pictures)

As the world ponders on what will be Russian President Putin’s response to Friday’s airstrikes by the USA, the UK and France, spotters on the Turkish Bosporus bridge say they have proof that the Kremlin is already sending reinforcements via their country and have published multiple pictures of two Russian warships laden with military vehicles.

On the first boat, pictured under the large Istanbul bridge on Sunday, the cargo seemed to consist only of tanks, trucks, ambulances and an IED radar.

Furthermore, a yellow Roll-on Roll-off ship called the Alexandr Tkachenko could also be seen sailing under the big bridge, heading clearly for Tartus port in Syria. It was carrying several high-speed patrol boats, a temporary bridge structure and several trucks.

The images are spread on the internet just as French President Macron stated that he had called Russian President Putin before the strikes took place and claimed that the Kremlin was complicit to what was happening in Syria.

Mr Macron said: "They have not used chlorine themselves but they have methodically built the international community's inability to act through diplomatic channels to stop the use of chemical weapons."
