(TASS) Staged videos showing “Russia’s bombardments” in Syria as well as other videos of this kind were made by the militant film crews, Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said on Tuesday.

“All the ‘movies’ showing alleged ‘Russian bombardments’ and other staged videos were made by special shooting teams formed by militants,” he said.

“The question remains why some media were so eager to use them without checking. We have advice for them: don’t ever fall for terrorists’ propaganda,” Konashenkov added.

No “opposition” found in Aleppo 

No human rights activists, representatives of the “opposition” or non-governmental humanitarian organizations have been found in eastern Aleppo, Konashenkov said.

“No representatives of the ‘opposition,’ the ‘local councils’ or non-governmental humanitarian organizations professing ‘Western values’ London and other capitals like so much, such as the White Helmets, the association of physicians or rights activists have been found in eastern Aleppo,” he said.

“According to civilians, there was only hunger and indiscriminate terror by militants for any attempts to express dissatisfaction or leave the enclave,” he added.

Konashenkov also said that Western countries and international humanitarian organizations have not provided the promised humanitarian assistance to those civilians who managed to get out of Aleppo.

“All of our requests addressed to the Western counterparts and international organizations for dispatching promised humanitarian aid to those civilians who managed to flee the terrorist enclave in Aleppo have remained unanswered,” he said.

According to Konashenkov, instead of providing aid, the Western countries either keep silent or point to security threats facing humanitarian aid convoys. “Although no one in London, Paris, Berlin and Washington was concerned about any threats when sending aid to the terrorists-held districts of eastern Aleppo,” he added.

Terrorists in Aleppo held more than 100,000 civilians hostage as a human shield and all those people left for the Syrian government-controlled areas as soon as the opportunity offered itself, according to Konashenkov.

“The Syrian army’s operation to retake Aleppo’s eastern districts, successful and in every sense humane towards the civilians, has demonstrated a number of important things,” Konashenkov said.

“In the eastern districts the terrorists held hostage more than 100,000 civilians as a human shield. At the very first opportunity they left that enclave and moved to the Syrian government-controlled districts for safety, real aid and food,” Konashenkov said.

Terrorists turned all of Aleppo’s schools and hospitals into ammunition depots or missile-making workshops, according to Konashenkov.

“The inspections carried out by Russian mine clearance specialists from the International Anti-Mine Center in the eastern outskirts of Aleppo did not reveal a single school or hospital, which had been functioning for the true purposes they were built under the terrorists. All of them were used as headquarters, Sharia courts, terrorist rallying points, ammunition depots and underground production centers for manufacturing homemade rockets,” he said.

Over the past 24 hours, the Syrian troops have recaptured another 11 Aleppo’s neighborhoods from militants. The Syrian government now controls more than 98% of the city.

About 110,000 civilians, including 44,367 children, have been able to leave the eastern part of Aleppo since the beginning of the operation to liberate the city.

More than 7,000 residents returned to their homes from the city’s western districts.

We’re far from the 250k civilians ‘activists’ and the UN announced 😉 And a momentous massacre or the full levelling of the city are still nowhere to be seen… Now, we were more than a few to have noticed that many of the White Helmets etc actions were staged. Some when even able to notice the use of mannequins used for carcasses simulation purposes, movie make up, etc… Now, let’s be clear : in a war, this may be deplorable, but there will ALWAYS be casualties, including civilian ones. Be it a Russian, US or anyone’s interventions BUT anyone with… Read more »

Another snub for the anti-Syrian plot.
Now I feel some western govt were fooled by some propaganda assets, maybe simply ’cause they wanted to believe it.
Now, Russia has it easy as…
“When you want to fool the world, tell the truth.”-Otto von Bismarck.
Thus, some other quotes from him tend to… well…
“Never believe anything in politics until it has been officially denied.”
“People never lie so much as after a hunt, during a war or before an election.”
LOL.
Bismarck was a champion when it came to real-politik 😉

It appears that Fake US Intelligence has again foundered on the Rocks of Reality ,in spite of the Lighthouse of Realism that warns those of little intelligence to stay away from the Coastline of Lies.

Actually, the “Syrian Campaign” and the PR agency that is funding the White Helmets, so is the dubious SOHR, are all based in the UK 😉 Intelligence services, IMHO, are doing their job well and their job is not propaganda. The lies of propaganda could work if they were able to blockade the truth to surface but the time you could do it is over so the crapaganda is falling short and simply gets busted.

The British have been lagging behind the US espoused ‘Narrative’ curve for some time. Frankly they look and sound rather foolish and amateur, even to a layman such as me. The days of WW1 have long gone where the British Public tended to believe British allegations that the German soldiers tossed French and Belgian babies into the air and skewered them on bayonets and also allegations that the German army dead were rendered down to make soap. In 1922 I think, Winston Churchill apologised to the German Government and people for these ‘propaganda lies’. Plus ça change, plus c’est la… Read more »

Brits continue their German bashing even today. And the same old slurs for “Frogs”. Thanks for their Brexit. p.s. The result of Brits allegations during WW I was that people did not believe them in WW II or better believe them too late – when Hitler committed crimes.

@Daeshbags Sux >>> Bismarck was <<< the conservative Kanzler that introduced social legislature to dry out the socialist voting electorate. p.s. I wonder whether the founders, sponsors of terror & propaganda NGOs were fooling the public or fooled by their creations. ROFLCrying.
