Amnesty International charges Russia with war crimes
At least 200 civilians have been reported to be killed in Russian air strikes in Syria according to an Amnesty International report which quoted witnesses and activists.
It says it “researched remotely” more than 25 Russian attacks in five areas between 30 September and 29 November.
Amnesty says, according to the report, “serious failures [by Russia] to respect international humanitarian law”.
Meanwhile, Moscow has repeatedly denied causing civilian deaths, describing such claims as part of “information warfare”.
