MOSCOW, January 22. /TASS/. The Kremlin has refuted media reports that Moscow allegedly offered Syrian President Bashar Assad to resign.
"No, this did not happen," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told TASS.
The Financial Times wrote today citing unnamed sources in Western intelligence services that Colonel-General Igor Sergun, director of Russia’s GRU military intelligence service, went to Damascus and deliver a message from Russian President Vladimir Putin and ask Assad to resign. According to FT, Assad refused.
Sergun passed away on January 3 aged 59.
