Syria's barrel bomb specialists are in Russia to assist with a possible Ukraine operation.

 


Over 50 experts in the delivery of crude explosives are collaborating with Putin's men.


According to European diplomats, technicians affiliated to the Syrian military's famed barrel bombs that have wrecked havoc throughout most of the nation have been moved to Russia to help potentially prepare for a similar operation in the Ukraine war.


According to intelligence authorities, more than 50 professionals, all of whom have extensive expertise in producing and transporting the crude bomb, have been in Russia for many weeks, working with officials from Vladimir Putin's military.


Their presence is said to be one explanation behind US and European fears that the Russian military may have been prepared to deploy chemical weapons in the conflict, which has now reached its fourth month and shows no signs of abating.
