Russian Defense Ministry Says Cruise Missiles Destroyed Terrorist HQ and Arsenal in Syria

Russia's Defense Ministry says Kalibr and Oniks cruise missiles launched from the naval frigate Admiral Grigorovich have destroyed a "terrorist HQ" and an arms depot in Syria. The ministry published a video on YouTube showing the cruise missiles being launched.

Earlier on Tuesday, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu spoke about the new strikes, which included the first combat use of the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov. Another YouTube video released by the ministry showed armed fighter planes taking off from the Admiral Kuznetsov's deck. According to Shoigu, the new strikes are targeting the facilities and personnel of the Islamic State (illegal in Russia) and Jabhat-al-Nusra in the Syrian provinces of Homs and Idlib. 

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
