    No deliveries of Russian weaponry to Syria are currently underway, as Russia has supplied Syria with a considerable amount of hardware and weaponry.

    ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) — Russia has supplied Syria with a considerable amount of hardware and weaponry, and no deliveries are currently underway, Alexander Fomin, director of Russia's Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation, told RIA Novosti on Monday.

    "Unfortunately, there is actually no active cooperation involving our service now," Fomin said.

    "It is known what state the country is in. We have rather actively cooperated up until now, and have supplied a considerable amount of weaponry and hardware. It is being used. On the other hand, the situation is complicated, so there are no active deliveries at the moment," he said.
