US State Department urged other countries not to provide support for Russian fuel tankers bound for Syria

The US State Department believes that other countries should not provide support for the Russian tankers that supply fuel for Russian military aircraft in Syria, as stated by the official representative of the US State Department, Mark Toner.

“Although the decisions on the admission into their ports are made by the local authorities, we believe that the countries of the region should not provide support for the Russian tankers carrying fuel that will be used for the continuation of the air strikes,” he said.

The day before, Reuters reported that Russia supplies fuel to Syria, bypassing EU sanctions. After that, the Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, Major General Igor Konashenkov, said that the restrictions on the supply of fuel to Syria that were imposed by the European Union do not apply to the Russian military.
