I didn't miss the point at all, however, you missed the source of the 'story' and the crystal clear Russian attitude towards it's client state, Syria.

Here, I'll underline the important part of the story from the Telegraph link.

As-Safir, which has Hezbollah links and is hostile to the Saudis.

As-Safir said Prince Bandar pledged to safeguard Russia’s naval base in Syria if the Assad regime is toppled, but he also hinted at Chechen terrorist attacks on Russia’s Winter Olympics in Sochi if there is no accord. “I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics next year. The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us,” he allegedly said.
Not even the Saudis are stupid enough to threaten the Russians with terrorism. As-Safir, a Hezbollah mouthpiece, is the SOLE SOURCE of that 'story.' Try looking beyond your agenda.

Iggy still not working?
