    as military air-strike power the carrier has no great importance. There were enough ground-based air-forces. The battleships were there for political reason-we didn’t know who will win the elections in the USA (really 🙂 ). Also – to block the coast and the nearest waters from NATO vessels and radio-electronic reconnaissance. The rest reasons ask the MoD 🙂

    Russia is now stealing propaganda ammo from the U.S. & others, who said that Russia intervened in Syria in order to permanently occupy Syria. Not true. In this regard, Russia is NOT similar to the U.S. (a permanent military occupier of Iraq, Europe, Japan & Philippines, etc.).
