Syrian opposition is a terrorist international controlled by the USA, state the spokesperson of Russia’s Defense Ministry Igor Konashenkov, Interfax reports on September 29.
He commented on the statement made by U.S. State Department Spokesperson John Kirby, according to whom Russian planes will be shot down in Syria and the response of terrorists may include an attack on Russian cities.
According to Konashenkov, this statement is “the most explicit confession of the American side that all of the ‘opposition’ in Syria supposedly fighting in the ‘civil war’ is terrorist ‘international’ under the control of the United States.” “We know precisely where and precisely how many behind-the-scenes ‘specialists’ in Syria, including in Aleppo province, are engaged in operative planning and commanding the operations of militants,” he noted.
