Russia’s Defense Ministry has refuted medial allegations about the losses the Russian military sustained in Syria, in particular in the province of Daraa.
"There have been no losses among Russian servicemen either in the province of Daraa or in the entire Syria," the ministry said on Tuesday evening.
Earlier, a number of media outlets reported the death of 35 Russian and Syrian servicemen in a suicide bombing attack in southern Syria.
According to the Russian Defense Ministry, such fake reports are deliberately spread by the Islamic State (a terrorist organization outlawed in Russia) militants.
"All Russian troops are safe and sound and are doing their job routinely," the ministry added.
