MOSCOW, December 30. /TASS/. The Russian Defense Ministry has described the latest charges to the effect Russian planes in Syria were allegedly attacking civilian targets as a second-rate hypnosis show.
"All of these impersonal and groundless claims Russian planes have allegedly been used against civilian targets in Syria are looking ever more like a cheap hypnosis show in a travelling circus. Some very serious charges are being put forward with reference to some reliable non-governmental organizations. This begins to look absurd. The question what these NGOs are and to whom they look reliable remains unanswered," Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said.
In the meantime, such accusations are made amid absolute silence about the results of US bombings in the region, where US combat aircraft and attack drones fly six to twenty sorties a day to hit targets on the ground."
Konashenkov said the public at large will learn the real effectiveness of the United States operations when they result in heavy casualties and "it is impossible to conceal them or put the blame for such incidents on someone else."
