NEW: #Putin now in #Damacus for the first time. The snap visit comes after #SoleimaniKilling & in the run-up to #Russia/n President's trips to #Turkey (Jan.8) & #Israel (Jan22-23). What it's all about?
My fresh take @AlMonitor
3 remarkable details abt #Putin's 1st ever visit to #Damascus, talks w/ #Assad:
1.Four aircrafts of #Russia's special air squadron were making way to #Syria when Tu-214SBUS that provides communications for RUS top leadership left #Moscow -all to disguise Putin's movement Image
Those who spotted the movemnt presumed #Russia's Defense Minister Shoigu was on board.
Shoigu,accompanied by Chief of Staff Gerasimov,indeed traveled to #Syria but together w/ #Putin.
2. Unusual that #Kremlin's spox Peskov been holding mic for Putin,#Assad during plenary meeting Image
