As it expressed regret that the United Nations Security Council rejected its bid to halt Turkey’s military actions against Syria, Moscow stressed its commitment to provide help to the Syrian army against the militants.

Western powers on Friday turned down a Russian draft resolution calling for an immediate end to cross-border shellings and plans — supported by Turkey — for foreign ground intervention in Syria.

“We can only express regret that this draft resolution was rejected,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists.

He said Moscow was “concerned at the growing tension at the Syrian-Turkish border.

“Russia considers such cross-border shelling that Turkey is carrying out as unacceptable.”

President Vladimir Putin held a “detailed discussion of the situation in Syria particularly due to the escalation in tensions on the Syrian-Turkish border,” on Friday with his security council, the Kremlin said in a statement.

Peskov stressed that Syrian government troops were coming under fire in the area being shelled by Turkey, as well as Kurdish fighters.

The Kremlin spokesman underlined that Russia is set to continue its support for the Syrian army in the fight against the insurgents.

“Russia is continuing a consistent line to provide assistance and help to the armed forces of Syria in their offensive actions against terrorists, against terrorist organizations,” Peskov said.

He said that Russia’s intervention is aimed at providing “stability in the fight with terrorism, to preserve the territorial integrity of the country (Syria) and the region.”

A Rússia tem que golpear a turquia urgente, sem mais delonga. Não vai acontecer nenhuma 3ª guerra mundial, e depois de golpeada a turquia vai pedir pelo o amor de Deus para que a Rússia pare de golpear… e a OTAN e os EUA, não vão se meter com a Rússia e sim negociar a parada do golpe contra a turquia.
