Kremlin gives no comment on reports of Russia’s alleged military buildup in Syria

Some media sources earlier published reports referring to bloggers that claim the Russian military grouping in Syria has been augmented and deployed outside its air bases.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov declined to comment on reports on Monday that Russia had allegedly built up its military personnel in Syria and deployed them outside its air bases in the Arab country.

Peskov was asked to comment on the reports in some media sources that referred to bloggers who claimed that the Russian military personnel in Syria had been augmented.

"Like anonymous sources, bloggers are not the ground for any comments," the Kremlin spokesman said.
