“As it was already mentioned, there are Russian citizens in Syria who went there at their own will and with different purposes. It is not up to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to assess the legality and legality of such decisions,” the department noted.
“There are citizens of Russia and CIS countries who were killed, and there are also wounded – there are several dozen of them, they were assisted to return to Russia where, to our knowledge, they are receiving treatment in various medical institutions,” the ministry added.
On the night of February 8, an alliance strike led by the United States attacked Syrian militiamen who were conducting an operation against ISIL. The coalition stated that this was caused by an “unprovoked attack” on the headquarters of the “Syrian Democratic Forces”, in a Kurdish area backed by the US.
As a result of the attack, 25 people were injured. At the same time, the American media reported about “hundreds of dead”, including Russians.
The Kremlin press service noted that they do not have data on fellow citizens who are not regular military personnel.
