UNITED NATIONS, September 25. /TASS/. Restoration of peace in Syria has become a literally impracticable task, Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vitaly Churkiv said on Sunday at an emergency meeting of the Security Council.
"Hundreds of armed groups are active" in Syria and "anyone who will take the trouble" are delivering air strikes at its territory, he said.
"Restoration of peace in Syria has become a practically impossible task," the Russian diplomat said.
Russia will agree on no more unilateral steps to cease hostilities in Syria, Russian UN envoy said.
