OREANDA-NEWS. The Kremlin doesn't agree with the findings of an independent UN commission investigating reports of war crimes committed in Syria, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

“We strongly reject such allegations”, Peskov said. According to him, they were made just a day or two after the terrorists in Idlib launched their offensive against the Syrian troops. “Obviously, no commission could get reliable information about what is happening on the ground”, Peskov added.  On the eve of March 2, the UN commission published an updated version of the report on the situation in Syria, noting that the number of human rights violations in the country where the military conflict continues is growing, and the constant bombing in Idlib province forces the population to flee.

"The pro-government forces launched a series of air and artillery attacks in southern Idlib, killing dozens of civilians, destroying civilian infrastructure, including markets, refugee camps and hospitals", the commission said.
