UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – The US MSNBC television channel posted a video of a blow to Russian mercenaries in Syria.
The corresponding video was published in his Twitter journalist Richard Engel.
The plot is dedicated to the elimination of mercenaries in February 2018. This operation was previously told by the new US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, stating that “a few weeks ago, the Russians met a worthy opponent. A couple of hundred Russians were killed. ”
As noted by the course of action, American journalists, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his entourage continue to deny their participation in military conflicts – but at the same time, Russia constantly employs its mercenaries in them.
In the plot there is an excerpt of intercepting the negotiations of Russian mercenaries, where they discuss losses from a strike.
In February, Russian mercenaries attacked a US base in #Syria. Hundreds were killed in retaliatory airstrikes. The Kremlin tried to cover up the incident, but we got hold of intercepted recordings in which some of the contract soldiers discussed the encounter. pic.twitter.com/eoQMiXk5sX
