Russia ready to send troops to Syria

The Russian government is ready to consider the appeal on providing military assistance should the Syrian authorities make request to the Kremlin, Dmitry Peskov, the Spokesman of Russian President said, Joinfo.ua reports.

“If there is an appeal, in the framework of bilateral contacts, the bilateral dialogue, of course, it will be discussed and considered,” – Peskov said.

Predictably, he also said that the Kremlin had no information of the Russian military contractors’ complaints on sending to Syria.

Earlier, Walid al-Muallem, Syrian Foreign Minister said Damascus could turn to Russia with a request to send troops only if needed.

It should be recalled that Russian journalists have published the results of their investigation on recruiting Russian militaries to Syria. According to the investigation  the soldiers refused to go to war against ISIS instead of the Donbas.
