Federation Council Defense Committee members to visit Russia's Hmeimim base in Syria
MOSCOW. Dec 17 (Interfax) - Members of the Federation Council Defense and Security Committee will visit Syria, including the Russian airbase in Hmeimim, in late December, Federation Council Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Konstantin Kosachyov said at a press conference on Tuesday.
"Another Russian parliamentary delegation will be visiting Syria in late December of this year. This is not a bilateral visit but a trip to the Russian base in Hmeimim to meet with our servicemen, who are carrying out a mission there. If I am not mistaken, a delegation of the Federation Council Defense and Security Committee will be paying the visit on December 26-28," Kosachyov said.
