During three years of the participation in the Syrian war, Russia killed 18,000 people as Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

“3 years of Russian killing claim the lives of about 18100 persons, including about 8000 Syrian civilians including 3135 children and women,” the message said.

According to the data of the organization, the regime of President Bashar al-Assad increased the square of the territory controlled by the government up to two-thirds of Syria during the participation of Russia in the war. Until September 2015, the authorities of Syria controlled only 26% of the country.

It is noted that during the recent bombings, Russia used the cluster fire-bombs with “Thermite”, which consists of aluminium powder and iron oxide. The range of the action of such anti-personnel and anti-tank bombs is 20-30 meters.

“We in the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, although the Russian side is continuing to declare allegations and lies which assert that its warplanes and rocket strikes did never kill citizens, still see that the Russian Federation – the permanent member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), is still continuing to kill Syrian citizens, amid the continuation of the International Community’s silence and ignorance,” the message said.
