West wants to cover tracks of barbaric bombings in Raqqa: Russian MoD

barbaric bombings in Raqqa
Russian Defense Ministry stressed that the urgent intention of west to allocate financial aid to the Syrian Raqqa suspicious amid their repeated refusals to deliver humanitarian aid to the Syrians affected by the war, considering that it aims to cover tracks of the barbaric bombing of the city by the US-led coalition.

“Raqqa has not managed to cool down after bombings of the international coalition and the high-ranking officials from Washington, Paris and Berlin have started making statements about the urgent allocation of tens of millions dollars and euros to Raqqa. These millions should allegedly help to restore peaceful life in the city. We welcome such generosity, but we have questions,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said Sunday.

“The only explanation of this is an aspiration to quickly cover up the tracks of the barbaric bombings by the United States and the coalition’s aircraft that have buried thousands of civilians liberated from the ISIS terrorist group under the ruins of Raqqa,” Konashenkov added.

According to the official, over the past two years, Russia has repeatedly asked the United States and European nations to send humanitarian aid to the Syrians affected by war, and has also prepared a list of settlements, where this assistance is needed most of all, without dividing Syrians into “bad” and “good” ones. However, the response was always negative, Konashenkov added.

He assumed that Washington might consider Raqqa was the only place controlled by ISIS in Syria, “a provincial town, with the population of 45,000 before the beginning of the coalition’s operation to liberate it that lasted for five months.”

At the same time, Konashenkov clarified that the Syrian army supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces liberated the city of Deir Ezzor in 10 days.

  1. Raqqa: US coalition 'wiped city off Earth', Russia says...

    Russia has accused the US-led coalition of bombing the Syrian city of Raqqa "off the face of the earth" during the fight against so-called Islamic State.
    Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) took Raqqa last week and on Sunday said they had taken Syria's largest oilfield.
    Pictures suggest much of Raqqa is in ruins, and Moscow compared it to the Allied destruction of the German city of Dresden in World War Two....BBC
