Iran has terminated the agreement with Russia on the use of its air bases according to Commersant.
Reportedly, the Russian Air Force was able to use the base only for a week.
The publication’s source from the Russian military command and control bodies said that the parties appeared to have "some misunderstanding". The Russians were going to use the military air base not only as an airfield, but as a full-fledged military facility with the deployment of the respective arsenals as well. But Iran refused to accept this option.
The Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan criticized the Russian military commanders for disclosure of information about the Russian Air Forces using the Iranian airfield.
For the first time Russia appealed to Iran to provide the base for two Russian bombers Tu-22M3 and Su-34 to shell the Syrian rebels.
Russia relied on the expansion of the Air Force operations in Syria. The US suspected the Kremlin in violation of the UN Security Council ban.
