Russian Ministry of Defense accused the US and opposition groups it supports in Syria of failing to meet their commitments under the Geneva deal, blaming them for the collapsed ceasefire.   

“The United States and the groups of the so-called healthy opposition controlled by it have not met any of the commitments undertaken as part of the Geneva agreements. No separation of the moderate opposition and Jabhat al-Nusra has taken place,” senior Russian military official Sergey Rudskoy.

Rudskoy also added that “moderate’ opposition” have merged with Jabhet al-Nusra, and together are preparing for a massive joint offensive aganst the Syrian Army in Aleppo.

Rudskoy, who heads the main operations department of Russia’s General Staff, clearly stated that unilateral observance of the shaky ceasefire has become ‘senseless’ amidst ongoing shelling by militants, fueled by the inability for the US to influence the opposition forces active on the ground.

He also made clear that neither Russian nor Syrian jets have conducted airstrikes at areas covered by the agreement ever since the ceasefire came into force.

According to Rudskoy, the US-backed armed groups are full responsible for failure to deliver aids to the rebel-controlled eastern districts of Aleppo.

“The Syrian army has pulled back its heavy weapons, vehicles and personnel from the Castello road to the agreed lines twice. However, due to provocations and the opposition’s reluctance to reciprocate this clause of the agreements has been disrupted,” he said.
