Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said that Russia has adhered to its side of the Syrian ceasefire agreement from the first minute unlike the United States.
“Russia has from the first minute fulfilled its obligations to enforce the ceasefire regime on Syrian territory. At the same time the various US State Department and Pentagon officials’ statements about the prospects of ‘Russian fulfillment’ of the agreements reached on Syria are puzzling,” Konashenkov said.
Konashenkov emphasized that “the Syrian Army adheres to the silence regime” while “the US-led ‘moderate opposition’ builds up the number of attacks on residential neighborhoods.”
The representative of the Russian Defense Ministry also added that “it seems that the goal of Washington’s ‘verbal smokescreen’ is an intent to conceal non-compliance with its part of the obligations. First of all, on the separation of ‘moderate opposition’ forces and terrorists.”
