Russia says United States stance on Syria allows terrorists to regroup: RIA

MOSCOW (Reuters) - The United States has still not differentiated between terrorists and the co-called moderate opposition in Syria, which allows militants to prepare new offensives, RIA news agency cited a Russian deputy foreign minister as saying on Thursday.

“There is an element here of a political ruse at least,” Sergei Ryabkov was quoted as saying.
