The grouping of the Russian Navy will be permanently located in the east of the Mediterranean

The grouping of the Russian Navy in the eastern Mediterranean will be there permanently after the Syrian operation, Army General Valery Gerasimov, chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, told Komsomolskaya Pravda.

"We will not go anywhere," Gerasimov replied to the question whether the Russian warships would leave this region.

"In the Mediterranean, now our permanent staff of ships is operating on an ongoing basis ... It was there before the events in Syria, from 2015, and we will stay on an ongoing basis," Gerasimov said.
