The Russian navy says they are planning to expand Syrian port city facilities in order to be able to dock Russian aircraft carriers and missile cruisers by no later than 2013 which would allow the Russian navy to supply logistics and maintenance service to the eastern Mediterranean. This project, when concluded, will enable the Syrian ports to accommodate a range of heavy warships including the aircraft carriers which has been a goal that Russia has sought after for a number of years.
