UN 28 Feb. /TASS/. Terrorists remain a “legitimate target” of military operations in Syria, and ceremony of them will not.

This was stated on Wednesday, Russia’s permanent representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzia at the meeting of the Security Council.

He commented on the letter received from UN armed groups in the Eastern ghouta, which has expressed willingness to send from this suburb of Damascus members of the terrorist organization “dzhebhat an-Nusra” (banned in Russia). According to him, Russia is waiting for “clear assurances to this effect from the external backers of militants,” including those countries which are members of the UN security Council.
