Brett McGurk, the US Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL, excluded Russia's participating in coalition against the Islamic State, Sky News Arabia reported.
The US does not trust Moscow, which supports the Syrian government financially and militarily, McGurk claimed. He also noted that Washington and Moscow coordinate strikes against Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists, other than that Russia should pressurize the Syrian authorities more, so that they implement agreements on cease of military activity.
However, McGurk didn't specify who should pressurize the so-called 'moderate opposition', which carries out combat acts against legitimately elected authorities.
As Pravda.Ru reported, two Russian military flight instructors Ryafagat Khabibulin and Yevgeniy Dolgin died on 8 July. Having clashed with terrorists they disrupted the ISIS' offensive at the expense of their lives.
According to Russian officials, the detainees are employees of the private security company who were on their way to Latin America via Minsk and Istanbul. Lukashenko calls Russian officials liars
