The Russian planes VC is not carried out operations in Aleppo, so NATO has no reason for concern in connection with the movement of a group of Russian ships in the Mediterranean sea, told RIA Novosti Director of the European cooperation Department of Russian foreign Ministry Andrey Kelin.
The official called the statement of NATO about the possible participation of the aircraft carrier group led by “Admiral Kuznetsov” in action in Aleppo, Syria ridiculous
“The concern is based on nothing, since it is already the ninth day of our aircraft is not close to Aleppo. Reason no. The grouping of ships is in the Mediterranean sea. Our ships have always been before in the Mediterranean sea. Reason to suspect something there, there is no basis for the statements of Stoltenberg,” — said Kaelin.
“Now Russian aircraft approaching Aleppo, it says the Ministry of defence. Why build such vague assumptions and their basis to make any policy recommendations? This, of course, is absurd,” — said the thought the diplomat.
25 Oct NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stated that a group of Russian warships led by the heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser “Admiral Kuznetsov” can be used to attack civilians in Aleppo.
“A battle group can be used to extend the capabilities of Russia on the conduct of hostilities in Syria to enhance new air strikes on Aleppo,” — said Stoltenberg. In particular, it “can be used as a platform to strengthen the air strikes against civilians in Aleppo,” he added.
