In turn, the US Department of State said that Russia carries out the ‘mixed bombardments’, targeting not only terrorists, but also other ‘opposition groups’.

When militants of the Al-Nusra Front, the Harakat Nour al-Din al-Zenki, the Ahrar al-Sham and other groups mix in battles in the south-west of Aleppo, nobody will spend time to understand, who among them is a ‘moderate’ opposition, and who is not.
Talks about “good and bad” terrorists in Syria have been ongoing on the international level since the start of the Russian intervention to Syria. So, there are no reasons to believe that they can change something on the ground.
