Russia’s Air Force is prepared to assist if the government orders the evacuation of Russian citizens from volatile Syria, Deputy Air Force Commander Vladimir Gradusov announced on Saturday.
He added that Russia will not abandon its citizens in Syria if the conflict deteriorates.
Syria has been engulfed in violence for the last two years. Moscow wants the conflict to stop as end as possible and urges the warring parties to comply with Kofi Annan’s peace plan.
