Russia could deploy more than 1,000 servicemen to join the military actions in Syria, reported Vedomosti, citing a source in the Russian Defense Ministry.

According to the source, the Armed Forces officers, as well as common soldiers and contract sergeants will be employed. Those wishing to come to Syria are promised a great travel pay, so there is no shortage of candidates.

Payments to servicemen who are abroad on official circumstances are governed by the laws of the Russian Federation.

Under Russian law, beyond the normal cash salary, the officers will get $ 62 and ordinary soldiers - $ 43 a day.
