Putin has said that Russia will increase the military presence in Syria if they have to

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that Russia is willing to use more military means in Syria if necessary, as Russian armed forces have not employed all of their capability. 

His comments came one day after the United Nations Security Council approved a resolution that supports an international effort to find a peaceful solution to the Syria crisis.

Putin said in a speech:

We see how efficiently our pilots and intelligence agents coordinate their efforts with various kinds of forces – the army, navy and aviation, how they use the most modern weapons”.

Yahoo News reports:

“I want to stress that these are by far not all of our capabilities,” he said.

“We have more military means. And we will use them – if need be.”
