Russia accuses USA of supporting terrorism

Conflict over Syrian operations flares up

Russia is outraged by the threatening tone of the latest United States statement on Syria, viewing it as tantamount to supporting terrorism. Kremlin accused US of supporting terrorism after Washington presented an ultimatum. The US threatens to stop cooperation with Russia in Syria if the Kremlin would not stop the shelling of Aleppo, a Syrian opposition stronghold.

In a telephone call to Russian foreign Minister Lavrov, State Secretary John Kerry repeated that dozens of civilians die because of these shellings. City infrastructure is also damaged: just days ago two hospitals were raised to the ground in Aleppo. The shellings do not seem to stop for more than a week. During this time, at least 350 people were killed. Human rights watchdogs accused Russia of shelling not the Islamic State headquarters, but civil quarters were Assad regime opponents live.
