“Today you could see on Youtube videos, one of which indicated that the Syrian government armed forces have used tanks T-90, who successfully opposed, including the impact and fire of the enemy. Clearly, all we are interested in to come to a truce, and we hope that this truce will be implemented. But the mere fact that the TOW-2 worked on the T-90A Syrian, and the crew remained alive, and the machine is not damaged,” said Khalitov the radio station “Russian news service”, commenting on a video in which an American missile hit a Russian tank.
