Russia sends another naval ship to Syria
Russian news agencies say the navy is sending another ship to the Syrian port of Tartus, where Russia has a naval base.


The reports Sunday by the ITAR-Tass and Interfax news agency cited an unidentified official in the military general staff as saying the Novocherkassk, a large landing ship, has set sail from the Black Sea port of Novorossiisk. The ship is expected to arrive in the Tartus area in early January. (AP)
