R.T. is a Russian government propaganda outlet.
But you never knows whats real or what isn't.

It wasn't so long ago that Ofcom, the official communications regulator here in the UK, was asked to investigate RT amid allegations of bias and Russian Government propaganda....... they found no such evidence! The goal of course was to have their license for operations in the UK revoked.
See, the whole "Russian Government Mouthpiece" thing was just another bit of BS to try to silence another outlet that perhaps says things our own government, and those wishing to stifle information, would like to keep from the public if it doesn't follow the "official" narrative.
You only need to look at the BBC, for instance, to see a massively biased and controlled propaganda outfit!
controlled by the Kurds for +2 years already
...The airfield near the city of Rmeilan, which will become the first US-controlled airbase in Syria, was previously controlled by the US-backed Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG)
The area is controlled by Syrian Kurdish fighters who have been pushing back Isis with the help of American air power. US officials confirmed that a small number of special forces soldiers were being deployed, but declined to give details. “Because of the special nature of these forces, it’s very important that we do not discuss specifically where they’re located,” said Colonel Steve Warren, an army spokesman, in Baghdad.
“The airfield has been reconstructed and now has one airstrip for the American helicopters and a command centre,” said Abu Jad Haskawi, a Syrian activist who is based in the nearby town of Hasakah.
