    Russia did NOT send aircraft or anything else to evacuate its citizens.

    Please, don't post crap. Check information first.

    Currently in Syria there live around 70 000 Russian citizens. Many of them became victims of war and terrorism.

    The two planes you keep talking about are NOT for EVACUATION of the Russian citizens, but for those who would like to leave the war zone. It's HUMANITARIAN HELP. Not "evacuation".

    I said it before and I will say it again, this man Assad must be instructed that he is a leader of an entire country, and if he behaves like a bitch, he will die like a bitch. This living on a warship out of harms way is very bitch-like, and will most definitely be seen by his own detail that he must go, nobody will follow a bitch, its time to go Assad.

As they arrived, he was shouting orders at a food supply depot in the town of Sermin, a few kilometers from the border with Turkey. He had no time to defend himself as the gunmen got out of the car and riddled him with bullets.
