The United States is protecting terrorists and trying to block efforts to eliminate them permanently in Syria by imposing new sanctions related to the supply of fuel to Russian aircraft involved in the war on terror in Syria, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
Russia has been participating in the war on terror alongside the Syrian Arab Army since September 2015 at the request of the Syrian government. During this period, terrorist organizations have suffered heavy losses, while the United States has been leading an alliance outside the international legitimacy since August 2014 to fight ISIS. The terrorist committed dozens of massacres against innocent civilians in Syria and Iraq and has consistently destroyed vital infrastructure.
"The masks have finally fallen and we are now talking about clear plans to prevent the complete elimination of terrorists on Syrian soil," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
In a statement, the ministry stressed that the United States condones and protects terrorist crimes and practices in an attempt to prolong the crisis in Syria and prevent its end.
"The Russian side has noted with concern for a long time that the United States is supervising the terrorists from Jabhat al-Nusra, providing them with everything they need and trying to protect them from the strikes that target them, even though they are an arm of al-Qaeda and have been designated as a terrorist organization worldwide," she said.
The ministry said the new sanctions package was the 75th since relations between Russia and the United States began to deteriorate in 2011 and said that the instigators of the sanctions against the Americans against Russia had not achieved any of their goals.
The US Treasury Department announced yesterday the imposition of new sanctions on three Russian citizens and one company and five ships for what they described in their role "in providing jet fuel for Russian forces in Syria."
