Moscow calls for an investigation into all airstrikes by the US-led coalition on civilians in Syria and Iraq, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law, Konstantin Dolgov, told a news conference on Monday.
“Airstrikes carried out by the US-led coalition kill real civilians, not some mythical people,” Dolgov said. “It is necessary to investigate all these cases.”
The diplomat went on to say that terrorist groups benefit from Western media’s disinformation about Russia’s actions in Syria.
“Our Western colleagues do not shun anything, TV channels with a longstanding reputation are involved in this shell game scam,” Dolgov said. “Such attempts to demonize Russia play into the hands of terrorists and extremists, the Al-Nusra Front (outlawed in Russia). Such disinformation attempts are a factor of support for the terrorists,” he said.
