MOSCOW, February 10. /TASS/. Moscow considers Washington’s claims that Russia is using free-fall bombs in its air operation in Syria absolutely inadmissible, Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday.
"We regard public statements by US representatives that Russia is using free-fall bombs in Syria as absolutely inadmissible," Zakharova said. "This is speculation, information confirmed by no facts."
According to Zakharova, the statements of US Secretary of State John Kerry that Russia’s airstrikes kill civilians in Syria are irresponsible and not confirmed by any facts.
"It is irresponsible to make such statements," Zakharova stressed. "As always, no credible information or evidence confirming such statements have been provided to the Russian side," she said.
The diplomat reminded that Russia has called on its US partners many times to establish cooperation between the military to alleviate concerns and start fighting terrorism in Syria efficiently.
"You know well the answer we received," she said.
The Russian side has repeatedly asked the US colleagues to make it clear on "who bombs who" and where the positions of the Islamic State terrorist group are located, Zakharova said.
"So far we have heard no clear answers and most important, we have not seen any particular actions," she added. "First of all, this happens because the United States consistently avoids particular steps on coordinating actions."
