Russia is responsible for the breach of an agreement on a truce in Syria, and the offensive of Assad troops, and if it really wants to prove the desire for peace, it should take appropriate steps. This statement was made yesterday, on September, 23 by the  spokesman for the White House Josh Ernest, reports "Ukrinform".

"Russia is responsible and if this arrangement has the future, Russia must take steps to prove it," - said Ernest.

The day before US Secretary of State John Kerry made a similar statement after a meeting of the International Syrian Support Group in New York, said in a statement.

"This is the moment of truth for Russia, the moment of truth for the Assad regime and for the opposition, for all of us who seek to end the war in Syria and defeat the terrorists" - Kerry said.

He stressed that the only way to achieve this is to deal with all the parties, whose aircraft operates in Aleppo region, to suspend military operations, and not for a day or two but for an indefinite time, until everyone would beconvinced of the seriousness of their intentions."

In the absence of such a massive step the United States do not see any sense in further declarations, promises and plans "that simply can not be implemented."
