Russia’s Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman says five Russian citizens may have been killed in Syria in US attacks on pro-government forces this month.
Maria Zakharova however said those killed were not Russian military personnel. She added that claims that hundreds of Russians have died during clashes in Syria are part of a disinformation campaign against Moscow. Zakhrova added that the US actions in Syria are designed to undermine the Arab country’s territorial integrity. The US attacks took place in Syria’s Dayr al-Zawr province several days ago. Reports say the attacks left nearly a hundred people dead. The US has been conducting ground and air attacks in Syria since September 2014 without the consent of Damascus or a UN mandate.
