(here exclusively the BBC-Report to Russian military mission in Syria, on Facebook blocked through curious manipulation…)
A top Russian human rights body says it has been contacted by Russian soldiers who fear being sent to fight in Syria.
The presidential Human Rights Council told BBC Russian that it was seeking an explanation from the Russian military.
Officers reportedly told some soldiers that they would be sent to fight „in a hot country“. Russia has sent military hardware to Syrian government forces.
Separately, a top Russian security official said nearly 2,400 Russians had joined Islamic State (IS) fighters.
