Russia uses aircraft carrier for big attack on Syrian rebels | Reuters

SOCHI, Russia Russia launched coordinated missile strikes against rebels in Syria on Tuesday and Moscow for the first time used its only aircraft carrier in combat, Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said.Shoigu said a frigate had fired cruise missiles, jets from the Admiral Kuznetsov, Russia's sole aircraft carrier, had been involved in action, and missiles had been loosed from a mobile land-based missile system inside Syria.In Washington, Captain Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, said he was aware of the announcement, but was still looking into the strikes."From a pure military perspective, Russia already has significant capabilities inside Syria," Davis said. "Anything that they bring in from the outside, if it's aircraft carriers or if it's cruise missiles launching from ships or if it's long-range strike bombers flying in from Russia, those are done for show," Davis added. #Syria #Islam #United Kingdom #russian #lifestyle

Ukrainian hackers promise leaks on Putin spokesman | Reuters

By Alessandra Prentice and Margaryta Chornokondratenko | KIEV KIEV Ukrainian hackers behind recent Kremlin email leaks said on Thursday they planned to release more information taken from accounts linked to senior Russian officials, including to President Vladimir Putin's chief spokesman.A network of Ukrainian hacking groups, called the Cyber Alliance, has been releasing emails they say were sent to one of Putin's top advisers - a bid to disprove Russia's denial it has stoked separatism in eastern Ukraine and played a direct role in the 2-1/2-year-old conflict there.Speaking to Reuters on condition of anonymity, two members of group RUH8, part of Cyber Alliance, said they would not stop their cyber attacks against Russia while the eastern fighting continues.

NATO seeks to manage Russia's new military deployments | Reuters

By Robin Emmott | BRUSSELS BRUSSELS President Vladimir Putin's high-profile military deployments aim to showcase Russian power in any global confrontation with the West, NATO officials say, but the alliance will not seek to match Moscow's actions. Curtis Scaparrotti, the U.S.-led alliance's top commander, told allied defence ministers on Wednesday that more than 120,000 Russian troops took part in exercises in September which culminated with the firing of a missile capable of carrying nuclear warheads, diplomats said. As Russia's sole aircraft carrier passed Europe's shores this week, reports of its warships equipped with nuclear-capable missiles in the Baltic alarmed allies #Syria #France #Europe #russian #Latvia
