The defense Ministry denied reports about the death of Russian military in Syria


Russian defense Ministry denied information about the death in the incident, pictures which, as reported by the Agency, circulated a banned terrorist group “Islamic state” (ISIS), reports “RIA Novosti”.

“All the soldiers whose pictures were published by the terrorist group ISIS, their Ukrainian “friends” and London’s “Observatory of human rights in Syria,” alive and well and are in the location of their units,” — said the official representative of the Ministry of defense Igor Konashenkov.

He added that the photos were taken with a phone stolen in Russia.

“The only question that occurs to us how these photos have appeared almost simultaneously on the website of ISIS and the teams of Ukrainian propagandists on Russia,” — said Konashenkov.
