The Kremlin makes no comment on reports claiming the deaths of three Russians in shelling in Syria.
"As far as I know this has been refuted and, most importantly, these reports do not have a concrete source," Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Oct. 21.
Russian Embassy to Damascus spokesperson Asiyat Turuchneva refuted to Interfax on Tuesday evening the reports of some media outlets claiming the deaths of three Russian soldiers.
"Moreover, we would like to declare once again that Russian military servicemen are not involved in ground military operations in the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic, which is very important," she said.
The reports on the deaths of Russian servicemen in Syria look like another false report, "especially considering that the source of this information is the London based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which, in turn, refers to some 'own sources'," the embassy spokesperson said.
