Russian Navy's technical maintenance base in Syrian port Tartus operates as usual, there are no need to evacuate personnel and equipment, a spokesman of Russian General Staff told Interfax-AVN on Sept 4.

"Indeed, deployment plan of the Russian Navy task force implied possible evacuation of Russian staff from Tartus. With this end in view, Russian landing ships called in Tartus early in Aug to refuel and replenish supplies. However, neither people nor equipment were taken aboard", said the interviewee.

He specified that the plan was made for the case of aggravation in Syrian crisis. It was supposed to evacuate people, arms, documents, and valuable equipment to Novorossiysk. "The rest things were to be destroyed by a special-purpose team", the spokesman said.
