The Kremlin rejected allegations made by the United Nations that Russia may have committed war crimes in Syria last year, Reuters reports.

According to the Russian side, the U.N. investigators are in no position to know what is happening on the ground.

We strongly reject these claims. It’s obvious that one committee can not have reliable information on what is happening on the ground,”  Dmitry Peskov, Kremlin's spokesman, stated.

As it was stated in the report by a U.N. commission,  Russia, who is considered to be an ally of Syria's government, conducted airstrikes on a popular market and a camp for displaced people that killed dozens of civilians in July and August.

As we reported earlier, President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin stated that Russia was not going to fight anyone, but it created relevant conditions so that nobody wanted to fight against it.

"We are not going to fight anyone, but we are creating such a situation in the field of defense so that no one thinks of fighting us," Putin said.
