MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia considers the US reinforcement in southern Syria illegal, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bodganov said Tuesday.
"This is absolutely illegal. There was no corresponding decision from the Security Council, no request of the legal authorities of the Syrian Arab Republic," he told reporters.
The ministry said the systems could not help in fighting against Daesh in Raqqa but could be used against pro-government forces.
"We are also not ruling out [contacts with the US] on Syria as well," he told reporters answering a corresponding question.
