The defense Ministry has denied the deaths of five Russians in Syria



Military called false information and spreading the message of the TV channel “al Jazeera” about the deaths of Russian soldiers, reports RIA Novosti.

The defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov, said that all Russian military personnel in Syria are alive and perform their tasks.

“The message of Qatar TV channel “al Jazeera” about the alleged death of Russian soldiers in Syria is another information spreading,” said Konashenkov.

According to him, it is regrettable that one of the largest middle Eastern media “engaged in the distribution of such counterfeiting.”

Earlier, Arab TV announced that night near Latakia killed five Russian soldiers after the explosion of the military car.
