Russia's Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov has commented on Stratfor's report about the destruction of Russian airbase in Syria by Daesh jihadists.

According to Konashenkov, information about the destruction of Russian Mi-24 helicopters in Syria is spread by the propagandists of the ISIS, Censor.NET reports citing tass.ru.

"The rumors about the destruction of a group of Russian helicopters and two dozen trucks were created by the propagandists of the ISIL, who unsuccessfully tried to 'sell' this alleged piece of news about ten days ago," he said.

Konashenkov also said that all the Russian combat helicopters staying in the Syrian Arab Republic are performing planned assignments to destroy terrorists. "There are no casualties among the personnel of the Russian airbase," he added.
