Reportedly, the US Defence Secretary Ashton Carter said Russian military campaign in Syria will have consequences for the country itself, AFP.
“In the coming days, the Russians will begin to suffer from casualties,” Carter said.
Earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg spoke of "troubling escalation" in Russian military activity in Syria. "My concern is that Russians mainly attack the targets that do not belong to the "Islamic state" and other opposition groups which support the Assad regime. I call on Russia to play a constructive role in the fight against ISIS," claimed Stoltenberg.
