Kerry presented these conditions as a "self-evident" part of the efforts to resolve the current crisis. However, the website views this position as "hypocritical".
"The comments seem more than a little hypocritical, coming amid a massive US-backed offensive in the north Syrian city of Manbij. Though Kerry insisted in his comments that the US is obliged to keep rebels from launching offensives, there's been no sign they've even attempted to do so," the website wrote.
Last week, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met with US Secretary of State John Kerry. The majority of talks, as expected, concerned Syria and revealed a number of disagreements between the two parties.
"So far we've been seeing that our US partners from the very beginning of this year were telling us that they will be able to separate the opposition groups they are supporting from cells, but until now they have not been successful in doing so," Lavrov said.
According to the website, in recent months, the US enhanced its military activities in Syria, which led to an increase in the number of civilian casualties. Washington itself didn't bother to protect the Syrians from its airstrikes but criticized Moscow's attempts to evacuate civilians from combat zones, the website noted.
On July 8, Daesh shot down a Syrian Mi-25 helicopter which was being piloted by two Russian officers. The crew received a request form the Syrian side to strike advancing Daesh terrorists and thwarted the assault at the expense of their lives.
