Moscow is worried by the Turkish troops’ movement inside Syrian territory, the actions are illegitimate, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement Sept. 7.
"Russia’s Foreign Ministry expresses serious concern in connection with the movement of the Syrian troops and paramilitary formations of the Syrian opposition, supported by them, inside Syrian territory," the statement said.
"We are paying attention to the fact that these actions are being conducted without coordination with the legitimate Syrian authorities and without approval on the part of the UN Security Council," it said.
"This puts in question the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic," the statement said.
