"Officially denying deaths of armed Russian citizens that fight in Syria by the leadership of Russia is absolutely unacceptable".

It was eventually revealed that Russian military contractors were mixed in with the Assad regime's allies in that attack, and a number of them were killed.

The reports cited activists who said that at least four Russian citizens were killed in Syria on Feb 7.

He said the US moves are eroding Syria's territorial integrity by sponsoring the creation of power structures independent from Damascus, noting that Moscow has raised those concerns in contacts with the U.S.

But Bloomberg say that two administration officials in the U.S. government say the country is in talks with Russian Federation in search of an explanation for what happened. "But Russia will pretend nothing happened".

Turkey is conducting a cross-border operation in the enclave to rout a USA -backed Syrian Kurdish militia that Ankara considers to be a "terrorist" group. Elements of both sides are fighting the last remnants of the Islamic State group in Syria.

Russia's intervention in Syria in September 2015, along with Iranian and Hezbollah forces, succeeded in turning the tide in Assad's favor.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon has reported that it mounted another attack in the same area on Saturday, calling in a strike against a Russian-made T-72 tank, which it claimed had been "maneuvering" into firing range of an SDF "defensive position". Twitter is starting to report the names of the Russians killed in the attack, and the twittering is in the Russian language which means everyone in Russia knows.

"We don't have information about other Russians who might be in Syria". The US responded with airstrikes that killed about 100 of the attackers, according to the coalition, with the rest retreating.

"As the hostile forces turned west and retreated, we ceased fire", Harrigian, speaking from his headquarters in Qatar, said in a video teleconference with reporters at the Pentagon. He told Bloomberg: "No one wants to start a world war over a volunteer or mercenary who wasn't sent by the state and was hit by the Americans".

"We have signed a roadmap, not only in the field of electricity, but also oil and gas, covering the restoration of oil fields and the development of new deposits", Kovak was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies.

Those remarks about maintaining communication with Russian officials through deconfliction lines echo similar statements made following last week's attack. The New York Times said that "dozens" of Russians were believed to be killed.

Representatives of the United Kingdom and Sweden, however, have said that a draft resolution for the ceasefire is moving forward, Falk reports. Most of the fatalities were attributed to a US airstrike on enemy columns that was called in by USA -backed Kurdish fighters who believed they were under attack.

The US response showed that Washington "was taking under its control economic assets belonging to Syria", Moscow said.

The Assad government denounced the strikes as a "war crime". The U S officials also said the Russian government had lodged no complaint about its citizens being killed.

On February 7, the US-led coalition in Syria carried out several "defensive" strikes against Syrian forces in retaliation for "unprovoked" attacks on SDF forces, killing an estimated 100 pro-government fighters. There were American advisers at the SDF base who called in an airstrike.
