Clearly Russia requires a superiority in this partuicular weapons area which it does not have when ISrael sells such systems to the georgians. Russia is turning into a duplicitous nation saying one thing doing another. Let is sell what it wants to who ever it wants. It will come back to bite her in the ass later always does. As for Syria getting advanced weapons go for it. It will make any war that Syria or its proxies start a touch harder, but not impossible to win. The first time Syria or hezbullah would use the Yarkhont would be a very sad day for Lebanon and for Syria.
