MOSCOW, June 29. /TASS/. The Russian Defense Ministry has commented on remarks by Brett McGurk, the U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL (the Islamic State terrorist group outlawed in Russia) Brett McGurk who said during the hearings of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations that the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria violate ceasefire.
"It’s hard to say what domestic political reasons prompted this official to make this statement in the U.S. Senate. However, just like all previous escapades against us on Capitol Hill, it completely lacks specificities," Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said. "There are no dates, times or places that we could analyze and respond with facts," he added.
