MOSCOW, September 12 (Itar-Tass) - Russian military teachers do not go to Syria, Lieutenant-General Yuri Tuchkov, assistant chief of the Military Academy of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, said on Thursday.
He said three servicemen of the Syrian army were presently studying at the academy. “Representatives of the Syrian army have been regularly studying at the academy in the recent years and continue studying at the academy now. Three Syrian servicemen study by correspondence at the academy now to receive scientific degrees,” he said.
Tuchkov said the Russian Armed Forces had been giving considerable assistance to the teaching staff in Syria through advisers and helping organize studies of Syrian servicemen in their country.
