PILOT’S BODY RETURNED – From our S.E.I.G. Agent MARCO POLO:
Russian media have reported that the body of the dead pilot, Lt. Col. Oleg Peshkov, was recovered by the Turks, and was flown back to Chkalov airbase near Moscow on Nov. 30.
Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu (pictured with Putin) and C-in-C of Aero Space Forces, Col. Gen. Victor Bandarev, met the plane at the airbase.
Honor Guards gave the last military Honors to the dead pilot who posthumously received the Hero of Russia title.
On Nov. 30, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said that the Turkish side refused to hand the Russian military attache any materials on Turkey’s attack on Russia’s Su-24M bomber. He said that the Russian plane was above Syrian territory and “there was no violation of Turkey’s airspace”.
To protect Russian aircraft in Syria, state-of-art S-400 air defense systems, whose killing range reaches 400 kilometers, were deployed to Russia’s Khmeimim airbase in Syria.
Besides, Russia’s missile cruiser “Moskva” equipped with the “Fort” air defense system (sea-based version of S-300 air defense systems) now cruises off Syrian coast.
Russian Defense Ministry warned that Russian strike aircraft will be accompanied by fighters during sorties. From now on, they will carry air-to-air missiles for their own defense.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that Turkey’s attack on Russian planes will have “serious consequences” for Russian-Turkish relations.

The British Parliament is only sovereign in the UK. In Syria, there is already a legitimate and functioning government, which is capable of dealing with the terrorist threat. Britain’s involvement in the business of tackling CIA-sponsored terrorists is illegal, and should be halted.
