MOSCOW, October 30. /TASS/. Western media publish misleading reports on the activities of the Russian air force group in Syria practically on a daily basis and they present photo collages or undated video footage as proofs of Russian pilots’ zero hits, a high-rank official at the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces said on Friday.
"Although the General Staff offers full information to the public with maximum promptness as regards the operations of our air force crews in the Syrian Arab Republic, Western media release ever more new forgeries practically every day, claiming the airstrikes delivered by our air force crews are indiscriminate," said Gen Andrei Kartapolov, the chief of the Main Department for Operations at the General Staff.
Along with it, any credible testimonies or facts that would support the media claims "are traditionally absent".
As the evidence, the media offer photocollages of some kind or the video footage of some ruins without indications of either place or time of the events featured on the photographs, Gen Kartapolov said.
