Spokesman of the Russian Defense Ministry General-Major Igor Konashenkov said on Sunday that the US-led coalition has killed thousands of civilians and destroyed Raqqa like Germany’s Dresden was destroyed in World War Two.
“Raqqa has repeated the fate of Dresden of 1945, which was erased in the British-American bombarding,” the general said.
Washington, has announced it will allocate millions of dollars for a quick restoration of the city but Russia claims it is “to hide evidences of the barbarian bombing by the combat aircraft of the US and ‘coalition”, in effort to liberate the people from “ISIS”.
“Over recent years, Russia has addressed the US and the European capitals asking to send humanitarian assistance to the Syrians suffering from the war,” he said. “We have put a list of settlements, where that assistance was most wanted – without dividing the Syrians into ‘good’ and ‘bad’. Every time, from Washington, Berlin, Paris and London the answer was the same: we cannot and we shall not.”
