I believe that the Russians are aware of the fact that the war in Syria is a war by proxy directed against them and against their ally China. It is part of a bigger plan by the US to block Eurasia from having access to the maritime trade roots. In addition, I believe there was a mentioning of the presence of the representatives of the NGOs operating in insurgent territories. And this proves also that the US was using these NGOs as a tool of soft power in order to topple the Syrian regime.
"Well the problem is the Russians don't care about international law and we do. And... we don't have a basis - our lawyers tell us - unless we have a UNSC-resolution - which the Russians can veto, or the Chinese - or unless we are under attack... from... the folks there, or unless we're invited in. Russia is invited in... by the legitimate regime... well it's illegitimate but by the regime."
