Konashenkov responded to an article in the American newspaper about the attack of the VKS on the basis of the Western coalition in Syria
Earlier, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing sources in the US administration, about striking Russian aircraft at the "secret base of elite British and American troops in At-Tanf on the border with Jordan."
Konashenkov recalled that the Russian military “constantly and through all available channels urge partners to provide information on the location of the units of the“ moderate opposition ”controlled by them, but instead, it already after the fact has heard reproaches and accusations that aviation The Russian Aerospace Forces “didn’t” have to strike at some areas or targets. ”
He noted that even after attacking a militant training camp in the month of June (At-Tanf district), “the American colleagues heard the phrase:“ Do not hit the place where you just hit! ””
According to him, "there is a simpler way to solve problems - to move our partners from words to deeds and start joint actions against international terrorist groups in Syria." Only then “will it be possible to avoid a repetition of such incidents and not endanger the military personnel who are carrying out the tasks of combating terrorists in Syria,” the representative of the Russian department added.
