"I demand an explanation as to why Russian nationals take part in ground military operations in Syria, despite the statements by the president and defense minister that Russian military formations will be withdrawn from this country", Yavlinsky said.

The gains led President Vladimir Putin in December to order a partial withdrawal of Russian troops from Syria, but since that time fighting has flared up again among various factions that remain in the deeply divided country. Representatives of the Kurdish nationalist Democratic Union Party did not attend due to Turkey's opposition, while the Syrian government didn't send a representative because they consider the government to be legitimate.

It said the United States strikes, which reportedly killed about 100 of the attackers, were in self-defence. United States officials said the forces who attacked their allies were fighting on the side of Bashar al-Assad's regime.

The Russian Defence Ministry has said that none of its soldiers were in the area and suggested that pro-Syrian government fighters may have failed to coordinate their actions with the Russian military.

The reports cited activists who confirmed that at least four Russian citizens were killed in Syria last Wednesday.

The American press unveiled a video of the drone attack of the US-led worldwide coalition in northern Syria. "I advise you to contact the defence ministry".

Syrian regime forces launched a coordinated attack that included about 500 regime troops, 122mm howitzers, tanks and multiple launch rocket systems on the US -backed SDF headquarters in Deir al-Zor province approximately five miles east of the Euphrates River.

U.S. strikes have reportedly killed at least 600 Russian mercenaries recently, according to reports.

A punishing series of US -led coalition airstrikes in Syria last week reportedly killed an unknown number of Russian mercenaries fighting on behalf of the Damascus regime, with some sources saying there were "dozens" of casualties. "We have not received that word at Central Command or at the Pentagon", he told a media briefing on Tuesday. On Monday liberal presidential candidate Grigory Yavlinsky said: "If massive Russian casualties took place, then relevant officials. must announce this to the country and find out who is responsible".

The base was defended by American and Kurdish troops, who reportedly called in a us -led airstrike as their position came under attack.

The Interfax news agency reported that a Cossack group in the westernmost Kalningrad region said a member named Vladimir Loginov was killed in combat in the Deir el-Zour province.

Mattis called the situation "perplexing", noting that the reported attack on the SDF base, which allegedly brought about the deadly American retaliation, "makes no sense, it does not appear to be anything coordinated by the Russians".

Harrigan added that the attacking forces were fighting on the side of Bashar al-Assad's regime. Reports in Russian media have said Wagner - a shadowy organization known as Russia's answer to Blackwater - was hired by Assad or his allies to guard Syrian energy assets in exchange for oil concessions.

While the US has used private contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan for years, Russian law forbids the hiring of mercenaries or working as one even though Russia has used proxies in eastern Ukraine, where it has backed pro-Moscow separatists since 2014.
