It is a fact that the Syrian army continuous to lose battles towards ISIS and latest information indicates that ISIS control the oilfields of Tzazal northwest of Palmyra. The latest information has alarmed Russians, where Putin decides to intervene forcefully and to send army to Syria. Already for a few days the Russian army is fighting against ISIS and has managed several victories. However the number of the Russian forces is not enough to bring a good result. During the descent the Russians asked from Greece to allow the transit of Russian transport planes that are carrying armature in the wider area of Lattakias. The news about this was confirmed a short while ago by our partner Thanasis Drougos who informed us that to this action of Russia there was a strong reaction of Americans. The Americans the last few hours have asked from the current temporary Greek government to not allow the Russians to cross. This has caused confusion to the current temporary government while Americans are pushing hard with intervention of the minister of defense of USA Mr Aston Carter. Till now the Greek government fails to respond to the demands of the Americans. On the other hand, the Russians have told that they must definitely go through the Greek space because they have to help the allied Assad regime and fight resolutely the ISIS. Also, according to exclusive information of Greekaus and Thanasis Drougos yesterday night there was a new intervention by the US ambassador in Athens, Mr Dave Pierce. Turkey allegedly refused a few days ago a similar Russian request although we don’t have an official announcement. Also other sources indicate interference of NATO. As you can see it is a wild battle between Americans and Russians over the Greek area. For the US intervention there was a telephone contact of the ministers of USA and Russia, Kerry and Lamprof where the discussion took place in a very bad climate.
