MOSCOW, October 8. /TASS/. The speaker of the upper house of Russia’s parliament, the Federation Council, Valentina Matviyenko said the United States has nothing to object to Russia’s actions in Syria with as they are strictly in accordance with international law.
"We did not expect applause from some of our partners in this connection [Russian Air Force operation in Syria].
