The ministry said on Tuesday that the Hmeimim air base and the Tartus naval base were attacked by 13 drones on Saturday.
"As evening fell, the Russia air defence forces detected 13 unidentified small-size air targets at a significant distance approaching the Russian military bases", the ministry said in a statement.
"The fact of usage of strike aircraft-type drones by terrorists is the evidence that militants have received technologies to carry out terrorist attacks using such uncrewed aerial vehicles in any country", the ministry said.
The drone attack on the Russian assets in Syria also raised tensions between Russia and Turkey. A number of Alawite opposition members said they did not think the group is real and speculated that foreign intelligence agencies are seeking to create the impression of strife among regime loyalists.
Two Russian military personnel died in a mortar attack against the Hemeimeem air base on December 31, the military announced last week.
Putin said on December 28 that more than 48,000 Russian military personnel had served in the operation in Syria, and that Russia's presence at Hmeimim and Tartus would be "permanent". Many opposition groups are refusing to attend, citing increased Russian military interference.
