BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:50 P.M.) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that “everything we read about the hundreds and thousands [of killed mercenaries] are the attempts to speculate on the war in Syria”, in Moscow on Monday.

Speaking on the sidelines of the Valdai Discussion Club, Lavrov stated the information is “made by hyping up the hot news without bringing any certain facts.”

The foreign minister pointed out that “mercenaries from all over the world are fighting there. Special troops, that nobody ever invited, are there.”

The Valdai Club is taking place on February 19-20. The event is organised in cooperation with the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences and titled “Russia in the Middle East: Playing on All Fields”.

Lavrov brings it to the point. Speculation no facts.
Question is: who benefits from the rumours.
Who paid to spread them.
