Some sources of the Russian Ministry of Defense declared that the Kremlin receives information on the preparation of an attack by Israel against Iran's nuclear sites with the support of the United States. The attack could be fast and launched very soon. The response of Teheran should not take long. A new war could be started in the region, with unpredictable consequences.

However, Russia makes preparation to minimize losses due to possible action against Tehran has been going on for over a year. Currently, she is almost complete. According to sources from the Russian Ministry of Defense in October-November 2011, the 102nd Russian military base in Armenia has been fully optimized. Military families have been repatriated to Russia, the Russian forces deployed near Erevan were reduced, and the military units were projected in the region of Gumri, closer to the Turkish border.

A naval group of Russian Northern Fleet under the command of the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov, which intends to enter the Syrian port of Tartus, was sent near the Mediterranean coast. In the case of a conflict in the region, Russia could take the side of Iranian forces with military-technical assistance and combat equipment.
