MOSCOW, October 2. /TASS/. Information warfare has been unleashed in the West around Russia’s actions in Syria to accuse it of "erroneous logic," a Russian lawmaker said on Friday.
"I see that a wave of discrediting and flagrant lies has been stirred up against Russia over our recent decision to use military force in Syria," Konstantin Kosachev, the chairman of the international committee at Russia’s Federation Council upper parliament house, said at a meeting with members of the European Parliament.
Russia’s aviation, he stressed, "never hits civilian facilities." "We deliver no strikes at areas where civilians might be hurt," he said, adding that the target of Russia’s air strikes was terrorists.
He said attempt were being taken to "impose erroneous logic" on Russia. "First they impute a different nature [of action] from the really existing one, and then taking it as a pretext they deny cooperation with us," he said.
Kosached aslo expressed the hope that Russian would be able to find a common language "with France, the United States and other countries that are now conducting their combat operations." "If we pool our efforts in countering the [extremist organization outlawed in Russia] Islamic State, this fight will be really efficient," he said.
