Russia calls reports of mass Syria casualties "disinformation" - RIA

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Media reports about hundreds of Russians killed while fighting in Syria is "classic disinformation", Russia's RIA news agency quoted a Russian Foreign Ministry source as saying on Wednesday.

Associates of Russian military contractors fighting alongside government forces in Syria have said there were large-scale casualties among the contractors when U.S.-led coalition forces clashed with pro-government forces in Syria's Deir al-Zor province on Feb. 7 [nL8N1Q265G]
