That possible alliance could happen directly as a result of these negative terms, and it could also be used by Trump to achieve diplomatic objectives favourable for the country and for the world. "In the US, if there was any [small] fire there, the smoke would be immediately visible". Predominant anti-Russian tendencies in Washington's policies will scarcely subside before the midterms scheduled for November, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in an interview with Euronews channel on Friday.

"I think the Russians are clearly confused", said Atlantic Council rep Simakovsky. However, information about Russian casualties is only starting to trickle out via Russian news organizations and social media.

The US-led coalition in Syria retaliated, killing about 100 of the pro-Assad forces, according to the official.

"Absurd? Yes. But this is the modern American political reality", she added, in the first official reaction from Moscow. The fighters had no air cover or mobile air defence to protect them during the fighting, they said.

Several hundred Russian mercenaries were involved in the battle over a Syrian oilfield near Deir Ezzor and came under attack from U.S. aircraft, possibly the first direct military confrontation between Americans and Russians since the Vietnam War.

Russia's energy ministry said on its website that last week an agreement was signed on the "rehabilitation, modernisation and construction of new energy facilities in Syria".

Russian officials deny they deploy private military contractors in Syria, saying Moscow's only military presence is a campaign of air strikes, a naval base, military instructors training Syrian forces, and limited numbers of special forces troops.

Iran supreme leader's aide says US should leave Syria, defends Tehran's presence
Hence the Iranian determination to follow through with this strategy despite their clear understanding of Israel's red lines . Maybe the growing risk of inter-state wars will serve as a sign for the countries involved that tells them where to stop.

Asked on February 14 whether Putin had canceled trips and meetings that had been scheduled in the past few days in order to discuss the reports of Russian deaths in Syria, Peskov said that was not the reason. So far, there is no official policy on whether the US military's role includes countering Russian-Iranian efforts to help the Bashar al-Assad regime retake territory it lost in the civil war. -Russian relations, which are strained by disputes over Syria and several other issues.

Her son had previously fought in two wars in Russia's Chechnya region but struggled to find work afterwards, Berdysheva said.

What is clear is that a force made up largely of Russian "mercenaries" and Hezbollah militiamen attacked a military base last week in Deir ez-Zor, where US forces are stationed, and got clobbered as a result. USA policy at the moment is a bit confusing. The YPG are key US partners in the campaign against the Islamic State group.

Some said the offensive was launched because of a rumored relocation of some fighters from there to the Kurdish enclave of Afrin in northwestern Syria, which is facing a Turkish offensive.

The good news is that the US response was swift and brutal.

For a cynic like Putin, whose air force has bombed other enclaves of USA -supported rebels in Syria, the inability of the U.S.to stop a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally, Turkey, from attacking another ally in Afrin is a sign of weakness.
