Russia calls reports of mass Syria casualties 'disinformation'

MOSCOW – Media reports about hundreds of Russians killed while fighting in Syria is "classic disinformation", Russia's RIA news agency quoted a Russian Foreign Ministry source as saying on Wednesday.


Associates of Russian military contractors fighting alongside government forces in Syria have said there were large-scale casualties among the contractors when US-led coalition forces clashed with pro-government forces in Syria's Deir ez-Zor province on Feb. 7.
