"Russia ships secret military cargo from Syria to occupied Crimea ... unloading of cargo by the Russian military using a port crane started overnight October 22 2016 amid tightened security measures. The pier had been cleared and a cordon of reinforced police squads and plainclothes officers was set up along the perimeter of the area. The lighting was directed away from the pier, which made the unloading process more complicated. The spotlight on the ship was lit up only before the cargo was lifted rather than all the way through the unloading procedure."

Containers were unloaded slowly, with extra precautions, as the personnel involved very much feared for their lives in case the containers are damaged.
Interesting. ..

From Syria is the part I find interesting. What would they have in Syria that they would want to transport by ship that they couldn't transport easier by ground from mainland Russia?

There is not a land route between mainland Russia and Crimea. The Russians are however in the process of constructing the Kerch Strait Bridge which will provide such a route. It's not expected to be complete until 2018.

In any case, transport by sea and air would certainly be the most viable option at this time, unless you mean to invade and capture Ukrainian territory along the way.

Aboard a foreign freighter "under the flag of Sierra Leone?" I wouldn't expect so.

Chemical weapons perhaps? I'm shooting in the dark, but I'd imagine the list of what Russia would ship from Syria and hide like this is pretty short.

Also a possibility. But I still wonder why they want them in Crimea?
