Official: Direct Clashes between US, Russia Possible in Syria, Baltic Region
TEHRAN (FNA)- A Russian official said Washington and Moscow might enter direct military confrontation in Syria or the Baltic region given the heightened tensions between the two countries in the past few months.

Representatives of Russia's Council of Federation Alexei Pushkov believes that a direct military conflict between the United States and Russia may spark only in two places of the world, adding, "There are two zones of potential confrontation between the US and Russia - Syria and the Baltic region."

"The US military activities in the Baltic may trigger a serious crisis," he added.

Also, Igor Shatrov, a Russian political analyst, said that stakes are high for military conflicts between Washington and Moscow, adding that Syria is the only place in the world that the Russian units are confronting the western forces and different countries' fighter jets in practice.

He also said that the Russian forces are also witnessing provoking acts by the NATO forces in the Baltic region which cannot be considered as accidental.

Shatrov said the confrontation in the Baltic Sea would be meant to prevent construction of North Torrent-2 pipelines, adding that Germany has started operations to build infrastructures for the pipeline.

On April 14, the United States, France and the United Kingdom delivered a massive strike on Syrian targets in bypassing of the United Nations Security Council. Washington, London and Paris claimed that the strikes had been a response to an alleged chemical attack in Syria’s Douma.

The Russian Defense Ministry reported that a total of 103 cruise and air-to-surface missiles had been fired, 71 of them were shot down by Syria’s air defense units. Russian missile defense systems were not used.
