A statement made by head of Pentagon Ashton Carter regarding the fact that in the coming days Russians could incur losses in Syria, caused indignation in the Russian Ministry of Defense. “Representatives of the Ministry of Defense of Russia have never publicly announced their expectations in regards to deaths of US soldiers in their assessments of actions by the US military in different operations, held by them all over the world”, representative of the Russian military office Igor Konashenkov mentioned, having added that the statement, made by Carter, “demonstrates a certain level of political culture and an extent of cynicism of some governmental representatives”.
