On Tuesday, Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin Press Secretary, said that Russia delivered an S-300 missile system to the Syrian government.

In a meeting with the Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu said, "We have completed the delivery of the S-300 system," according to Russian media channles.

Piskov added that the Shoigu informed the meeting attendees that they completed the transfer of a missile system delivery and other special military equipment to the Syrian government in order to reinforce the military security of the Russian forces in Syria. The Ministry of Defense decided to give military equipment to the Syrian government after a Russian warplane was shot down over Syria on Sept. 17, 2018, according to Shoigu.

During the meeting, Shoigu said that Russia delivered 49 pieces of military equipment in order to complete the delivery of the S-300 system. The equipment included control vehicles and four launchers, according to media channels.

Russia is an ally of the Syrian government, and launched a military intervention in Syria in late September, 2015. Russia has participated in shelling and targeting civilians in Syria, killing and injuring thousands. Russia also has established military bases in Syria and contributed in reaching several agreements between the Syrian government and the opposition factions. The agreements led to the displacement of the opposition factions from their areas. Russia has also vetoed sanctions against the Syrian government in the United Nations Security Council.
