As it was stated by the Russian Defense Ministry, Russia saw a conspiracy in the death of the Russian nurse in Aleppo blaming the United States, Britain, and other countries.
According to the Russian Defense Ministry, fighters of Al-Nusra Front, trapped in eastern Aleppo, cannot make targeted strikes and that's why the Ministry believes that the Syrian opposition forces were involved in the shelling. Opposition fighters received accurate information and coordinates of the Russian hospital, the Russian Defense Ministry said.
"Our soldiers’ blood is also on the hands of the ones who ordered this murder. Those who created, nurtured and armed those human beasts, calling them opposition to justify before their conscience and voters you are to be blamed ladies and gentlemen, patrons of the terrorists, from the United States, Britain, France and other countries and formations that sympathize with them" the official representative of the Ministry of Defense, Igor Konashenkov, said.
