SOCHI, August 22. /TASS/. The Kremlin regards as incorrect US presidential national security adviser John Bolton’s remark Russia is allegedly stuck in Syria, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media.

“It is not correct for anyone, let alone our counterparts in Washington, to claim that Russia has stuck someplace,” he said. “Let us not forget that US military personnel is present on Syrian soil, too. This should be born in mind.”

Peskov said Russia “plays a very active role in saving Syria from international terrorism, from the Islamic State (terrorist organization outlawed in Russia) and other terrorist groups and in putting Syria on the track of political and diplomatic settlement.”

“Also, Russia actively promotes the return of refugees to Syria and the beginning of the country’s postwar reconstruction,” he added.
