Dozens of Russians wounded in Syria: Russian FM

US Strikes Killed Scores of Russia Fighters in Syria, Sources Say

The Russian foreign ministry, which previously said that five Russian citizens were likely killed, today released a statement that "there are also several dozen of injured" in the attack.

The US coalition on February 7 struck a formation attacking a position of the Syrian Democratic Force east of the Euphrates river in eastern Syria, killing about 100 people.

"[The United States] involved the units of the Kurdish Democratic Union party in their position to undermine Syria's territorial integrity, in fact, which led to an escalation of tensions with Turkey", Lavrov said, adding that the United States should stop "playing very unsafe games, which will lead to the disintegration of the Syrian state".

Despite the statement by the foreign relations ministry, the attack marks the first time that Russian nationals have been killed by an American airstrike in the war-torn country of Syria. I can't give you anything on that.

"But they took directions from someone".

"They were helped in returning to Russian Federation where, to our knowledge, they are undergoing treatment in various medical institutions", the Foreign Ministry said in Tuesday's statement.

"So, whatever happened, we'll try to figure it out".

Russia's assistance has proved to be a major success as Syria has managed to liberate key areas over the past years, including the second largest city of Aleppo, relying on Russia's air cover and military advice. "We'll work with obviously anyone who can answer that question".

However, many Russian citizens are fighting in Syria as mercenaries working for a private military company called Wagner according to numerous reports. Simakovsky added that the truth will always reveal itself because Russian forces have always had significant involvement in the Syrian conflict and have had liaison and coordination with the security forces and intelligence community from Moscow.
