Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov has condemned the US downing of a Syrian jet in Syria using even stronger language than Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
Lavrov stated that the US must coodinate its campaign in Syria with Russia and others while calling on the United States to respect Syrian sovereignty.
Now, Ryabkov has stated of the US attack,
“What is it then, if not an act of aggression, an act directly in breach of international law”.
“If you want, it’s actually help for the terrorists the US is fighting, declaring that they are conducting a counter-terrorism policy”.
