Syrian oil facilities are being “looted” by US private military companies, according to Russia’s Head of General Staff Main Operations Department Sergei Rudskoy, speaking at a briefing in Moscow on Monday
«US structures in Syria are engaged in looting the oil facilities and fields in the trans-Euphrates region which belongs to the legitimate Syrian government,” Rudskoy said.
He stated that the... Еще US mercenaries in Syria now account to more than 3,500 people, and noted that “the activities of the American private military companies are carried out under the cover of the international anti-terrorist coalitions' aircraft.”
During the briefing Rudskoy also denied allegations that Russian aircraft would have carried out airstrikes last week against civilian targets in the Idlib de-escalation zone.
“All such allegations are based on the lies of ‘rescuers’ among the so-called ‘White Helmets’, who were repeatedly convicted of provocations, fabrication of fakes and cooperation with terrorists,” the general said.
“I want to emphasize again that Russian planes were not used in that area and neither did any fly there on July 22,» concluded Rudskoy.
