The actions of armed space forces (VKS) Russia and the United States air force “stylistically” different from each other, said the official representative of the Ministry of defense Igor Konashenkov, reports “RIA Novosti”.
According to him, the difference is that Russia has not used the aircraft during the operation in Aleppo since all the attention was focused on the humanitarian sector.
“All the attention was focused on the work of humanitarian passages, as well as the delivery and provision of comprehensive care to local residents,” — said Konashenkov.
Explaining the operation in Mosul, which conducts a US-led international coalition, Konashenkov was quoted by coalition representative Joseph Scrocca. He said that the coalition “does not intend to retreat even when the battle is heavy.” That is why, in the opinion of the representative of the Ministry of defense, to talk about the humanitarian aspects of the us operation in Mosul is not worth it.
Konashenkov commented on the statements Scrocca that the militants “Islamic state” (declared a terrorist organization and banned in Russia) use the civilian population in the Western part of Mosul as human shields to provoke strikes. Scrocca told that there is video evidence that may soon be published.
“Absurd statements by the representatives of the Pentagon, justifying the mass civilian casualties from U.S. bombing in Iraq, say more words about the true level planning processes and the alleged superiority of American “smart” bombs,” — said the representative of the Ministry of defense.
He also wondered why the American command, knowing that the tactics of the terrorists, anyway, “causes the air strikes on buildings with civilians, knowingly condemning them to a terrible death”.
