MOSCOW, October 2. /TASS/. The Russian Defense Ministry calls the foreign media rumors about the operation of the Russia’s Aerospace Forces in Syria "pseudo-sensations."
"These pseudo-sensations are complete nonsense, not grounded in a factual basis. I’d like to draw your attention to the fact that today’s informational provocations had been concocted in haste before the start of the operation," Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said on Friday.
Thus he commented on some foreign media publications about the actions of the Russia Aerospace Force air group in Syria. He also said that the Defense Ministry was closely monitoring all the "stove-piping" cases, irrespective of the source of their origin.
The operation of the Russian forces in Syria against militants of the outlawed in Russia Islamic State organization was launched on September 30.
