Putin: Russia helped free Americans in Syria for humanitarian reasons


The President of Russia Vladimir Putin spoke about the release of a US citizen in Syria at the request of Washington. According to him, the special operation was not required for this — just needed to negotiate with Syrian authorities.

“Of course, without any money and without any ransom. Acted solely for the reasons of humanitarian nature”, – said the Russian President. According to him, Russia is ready to help to release the hostages and in the future, when it expects its partners to do the same.

The official U.S. state Department spokesman, commenting on the release of the American, expressed appreciation to the Russian government “for any actions in the interests of US citizens”.
