MOSCOW, December 8. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday Russia will never accept the position of Western structures on the death of Russian medics in Syria.
"I mean big international structures which have put an equal sigh between our medics who have been killed and those who hit their hospital, and did it deliberately as they knew where the medical establishment is located," Putin said at a meeting of the council for the development of civil society and human rights.
"It is absolutely unacceptable and inadmissible," he stressed. "We will never accept it."
The president thanked the Russian Red Cross Society which has resolutely condemned the killing of Russian medics in Syria. "It is absolutely obvious: our medics came there to address absolutely humanitarian tasks, they arrived there not to take part in combat operations but to help people, the local civilian population," he said.
"I have seen no condemnation of what has happened from any of the big international organizations," Putin stressed. "Regrettably, it sets us thinking about how unbiased some of our partners are in highlighting the situation."
