    The March report has been discredited several times, yes there were some special forces on board a Russian Destroyer which had been conducting Anti Piracy mission off Somalia, and on the way out and on the way home it stopped at Tartus as would most deployments coming from either the Northern or Black Seas Fleet.

    No troops stayed in Syria to conduct 'anti-terrorist' missions.

    However Russia does already have significant numbers of boots on the ground in terms of advisors and contractors supporting decades worth of military hardware, whether air defence radar or aircraft engineers.
