SOCHI, November 24. /TASS/. The Kremlin thinks it inappropriate to hypothetically dwell on possible impacts of Tuesday’s incident with a downed Russian warplane in Syria on Russia’s future contacts with the Free Syrian Army (FSA), Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday, commenting on media reports on FSA’s possible involvement in the attack on the Russian aircraft.
He confirmed that Moscow did have "contacts with those who called themselves representatives of the Free Syrian Army." "But at the same time, it would be wrong to indulge in hypothetical speculation. The situation is too important, too crucial to afford any hypothetical pronouncements," he stressed.
