Last week was marked by a heated dispute between Russia and the US over legitimate targets in counter-terror operations in Syria. According to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Washington asked the Kremlin not to target Nusra Front because there is “normal” opposition next to it. The Kremlin insists that some rebel groups, which are considered to be American allies, continue to closely work with al Qaeda. Additionally, last week the media payed a lot of attention to Russia-EU relations as the Union is soon to vote on the extension of sanctions against Moscow while still remaining divided over the economic measures that also hurt a number of European countries.
