According to Konashenkov, these allegations “give not only an ill-concealed desire, that we weren’t there, but the non-possession of the United States the real situation”.

He recalled that in the last days many Russian soldiers (sappers, military doctors, pilots, etc.) returned home.

In addition, Konashenkov has criticized the Pentagon over the decision to leave U.S. forces and the international coalition in Syria until the complete defeat ISIS (a group banned in Russia). Konashenkov believes that this decision casts doubt on the words of the American President. Trump said that the US defeated the terrorists in Syria and Iraq.

“It turns out that the Pentagon deliberately deceiving the international and the American public, including his commander in chief, or no more bases and even a formal pretext for the presence of American troops in Syria does not exist,” added Konashenkov.

We will remind, Vladimir Putin ordered withdrawal of Russian troops from Syria on 11 December.
