Moscow: Ankara will fail to distract the world public’s attention from its destructive polices in Syria

Moscow, SANA – Turkish authorities’ latest claims that the Russian air group in Syria has allegedly been attacking civilian targets and population in Syria have nothing to do with the reality, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.

TASS News Agency quoted the Ministry as saying “Ankara’s wish to unleash an anti-Russian campaign is regarded as an obvious reaction that followed shortly after our country exposed Turkey’s complicity in illegal activities in the north of Syria”, adding that these activities included connivance with oil smuggling from ISIS-controlled fields and various assistance to extremist and terrorist groups.

The Russian Foreign Ministry pointed out that “this populist move will fail to distract the world public’s attention from Turkey’s destructive polices in Syria”.
