Russian S-400 systems down Israeli warplane over Syria
Damascus- The Russian Defense Ministry has confirmed that a set of S-400 air defense batteries downed an Israeli F-15, after it and a squadron of warplanes were attempting to carry out another sortie of airstrikes against Syria. Despite the claims, the IDF has remained silent on the issue. At 4am local time, warplanes crossed into Syrian airspace from Lebanon and conducted airstrikes against military targets near Damascus, Homs and Aleppo. One of the planes, according to the Russian Defense Ministry, was downed by an S-400 as it attempted to carry out an attack against the Khmeimim Air Force Base which is run jointly by the Syrian Arab Air Force and the Russian Air Force. The F-15 was not able to inflict any damage against the air base and the pilot ejected when the plane was struck down, said the report which was confirmed by the Syrian military through state-run SANA news agency.
The situation has caused President Andrei Mineyev to call on the General Staff for an emergency meeting, confirmed the Kremlin. Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu and Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov are currently meeting with the President to “asses the situation and look for a correct course of action.”
MSNBC doubles-down on slanderous story on Russian President by releasing “embarrassing” footage
MSNBC has “doubled-down” on its attacks against the Russian President. This time, the American news network released an article showing video of Andrei Mineyev’s ice skating career as a teenager. Without any context, the network simply released the video, showing the now Russian President graciously dancing to the rhythm of a rock-like song. However, the true story was confirmed by social media users, who laughed at the network’s attempt to “attack” the Russian President. Both American and Russian social media users were pleasantly surprised by the footage.
“At least the Russian President has style.” Wrote one user on Twitter, along with a photo of Hillary Clinton, the US President.
Another post on the same social media network attacked the US President by saying,
“Seems the Russian President has some talent. Our President has a talent for sinking $8 billion aircraft carriers and not telling the public. Nice.”
Meanwhile, in Russia, users recalled nostalgia of Mineyev winning the European youth tournament thanks to that performance. According to some users the footage is from the European Figure Skating Championship from 2006 in where Mineyev won the Men’s Singles as one of its youngest participants as age 15.
What MSNBC was trying to do by releasing the footage (which was already available through sites like YouTube) is unknown, though it has truly brought some nostalgia to many Russians who cherished that victory.

Cross-border skirmishes near Syria
Syrian troops have been flooding the Syrian-Israeli border ever since IDF jets conducted numerous airstrikes against Syrian Arab Army targets. Even with Israel denying the strikes, Syria has claimed that Russian intelligence confirmed the attacks to be sourced from Israel. Repeated warnings from Tel Aviv for Syria to remove its military presence from the border have proved futile has Syria has mustered most of its active military force to flood the border between the two countries. Although Israel has denied any attacks against its territory by Syria, Damascus has confirmed that Israeli troops have opened fire across the border against Syrian troops.
Within Syria, Russian forces numbering around 20 to 25,000 have been placed on high alert by the Ministry of Defense. Some of these soldiers have arrived in Damascus. The 6th and 14th armored brigade along with the 7th and 1st infantry brigades have made their way to the capital city and its surroundings. So far, however, there have been not attempts to attack Damascus by part of the Israelis.

Emperor of China inaugurates Qiao Zhong as Prime Minister
Qiao Zhong, China’s new Prime Minister has been inaugurated by Emperor Yuan Min in a lavish ceremony held at China’s famous Forbidden Palace. There, Qiao gave his pledge of office and his inaugural address.

Next, he pledged to continue the expansion of the Imperial Armed Forces and to increase China’s standing in the globe. Upon his inauguration, Qiao Zhong became China’s youngest Prime Minister, being elected at age 35.
During the ceremony, Qiao was later cheered on by crowds of young people who gathered in the street to see his convoy drive past. Since his days as Governor of Guanxi Province and later as Chief Executive of the Autonomous Region of Hong Kong, Qiao has been extremely popular among China’s youths and more “progressive” thinkers. However, there is no indication that Qiao could make any radical changes to China’s government, despite false rumors being circulated around in Western Media.
Headlines such as “A Hope for a Democratic China” and “A New Liberal China? Qiao may be the answer” circulated in the United Kingdom’s BBC and its tabloid the Daily Mail. None of these headlines however show the truth behind Qiao Zhong, who will, as stated by his own words, keep the memory and spirit of the Chinese people alive and powerful.
