MOSCOW, October 20 /TASS/. The Russian Defense Ministry has denied the death of Russian servicemen in Syria.

"We would like to say in connection with foreign media reports that Russian servicemen have allegedly died in Syria that the Russian Armed Forces have lost none of its servicemen in Syria," the Russian Defense Ministry press and information department said.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Russian embassy in Damascus also denied Reuters reports that three Russian servicemen had allegedly died in Syria.

"We have no information at our disposal about the Reuters reported ‘death of three Russians’ or ‘three Russian servicemen’ in Syria. All this looks like a new stove-piping case," the Russian embassy told TASS.

"The more so that the information came from the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which in turn refered to some of its own sources," the Russian embassy said.
