The YPG have once again blamed Russia for the precarious predicament they find themselves in the northwest Syrian region of Afrin, rather then blaming their ally the US, who is also an a NATO ally of Turkey. Full details of YPG affiliated media ridiculously blaming Russia for the chaos occurring in Afrin can be found here.
